Designs that make ME go WOW!

I am so fortunate to be able to design for a variety of clients
with different hopes and dreams for what their personal space will
become.  I personally feel that a good designer

does not do the same thing for everyone. 
I try very hard to find the pulse of who I am

working with and create a space that speaks to them.

We have just finished a project that I have enjoyed so much.
It was a challenge from a design perspective to put multiple
materials together cohesively, create a highly functional kitchen,

and make it look like it had been there for a lifetime.
  Not only where we able to work with beautiful materials but,
I believe we have created a space that is beautiful today
but will also look lovely 15 years from now. 

This is what I feel is the heart of good design.

Take a look and see. 

Here is the BEFORE:  


It is a complete and total transformation.
The range hood is actually 7' tall by 64" wide
Custom made by Texas Lightsmith in Austin Texas.

Distressed Aged Nickel.  I love it!!

The countertop and backsplash are a honed marble.

A farmstyle fireclay sink with double drawer dishwashers on each side.
The dark granite top is also honed and textured for a vintage look.

The refrigerator and freezers are hidden behind the double doors.

Custom leaded glass in the upper cabinets

We wanted to create a vintage furniture look piece yet still incorporate  wine refrigerators and beverage drawers

Newly revamped dining space

A look at the detail in the cabinetry. 

These were quick on the spot photos, but I was so excited to share this new project.
I hope it provides some inspiration for your next project.
