 Remodeling and Home Design
Traditional Kitchen with cherry cabinets, quartz countertops, porcelain tile flooring. Contemporary flairs with unique lighting and furniture. A Swarovski pendant sparkles over the undercounter cast iron sink.
Paris Bedroom-My concept was a Paris-themed bedroom done as a .While she was out at summer camp project. My design was to transition an 11 year old girl's bedroom into a space that she could grow with into her teenage years.My inspiration was sophisticated black & white with lots of youthful colors. Colors dominate the space. The color flows throughout the room from the corner mural. Blue and pink dominate, with seafoam green accented throughout. Black and white is balanced throughout in the window treatments and zebra bed skirt. There is a black clothes rack to resemble the Eiffel Tower.
A tiny powder room reflects nature's simplicity and offers dramatic wall treatment as a bonus. Scattered gold leaf treatment, a George Bernard Shaw quotation and the my signature dragonfly motif gives the space soul. A mirror set into stone colored tiles, a vessel sink and black hardware come alive with chocolate brown and robin's egg blue accents. Another  signature- a hand towel 
I personally embroidered-adds a special personal touch to the room.
