1. Redesigning space

Captives of our living space, we are oftentimes inhibited by interior barriers such as walls, doorways, walkways, stairs, poor lighting, limited storage and interrupted traffic patterns.  By redesigning space, rooms are transformed into interiors that function well enhancing our lives; providing needs we've gone without, creating "home".  Read more about this project here on our portfolio page.

Problem:  Culture dominated use of space

Solution:  Expand the kitchen; available storage; working/cooking surfaces

 

This families' culture dictated the wife shared meal preparation with both her mother and mother-in-law.  Each person had their own unique style and each worked with unique ingredients, all of which needed individualized storage.  The space, while adequate as a whole, was broken by a small kitchen with peninsula and an underused eating area.  We solved their spatial issues by creating a supersized kitchen complete with plentiful island, several prep areas, space for multiple appliances and storage for everything.  Using mixed mediums, the space dictates classicism with accents and adornments, moldings and mill work to finish.

 

Problem:  Tired, outdated space demanding updates and style

Solution:  A lakefront cottage gets transformed into a woodsy, rustic retreat.

 

Hired initially to renovate the porch for this cottage, the owners were so struck by the transformation of this singular room, they hired us to work our magic in the entire house.  Together with their architect, we re-designed this multi-level structure with an addition for guests.  We brought our creativity to the exterior of this home and added stone in random ways to accent the porch, addition, boat house and inlets.  The homeowners and guests alike relish in the newly created ambiance of this beautifully transformed lakeside cottage.

 

 

Problem:  Master bath has funky layout

Solution:  Redefined space creates convalescent comfort after an accident

 

The master bath, only accessible through the homeowner's closet off the bedroom was underused due to the location of the bathtub, poor counter space and no shower.  The plan, open up the entire space, reconfigure for tub, steam shower, closet and laundry in the back with lots of storage with a spa like feeling.  We used glass bloc, glass tile, contemporary fixtures and soft colors giving this space an atmosphere of serenity.

 

 

Victorian atmosphere in the woods.

 

This builder owned two homes.  The new home sat high on a mountainside in the midst of the woods in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire.  Off the sunroom was a catwalk where family and friends could venture out into the woods into a gazebo on stilts high above the lake.  We were hired to fill the house with furniture and furnishings befitting yesteryear.  Warm, comfortable furniture graced with multiple fabrics, the texture of wicker mixed with antique tables embraced an atmosphere of long ago while making everything anew.  Floral, lace, trucks and dolls welcome children and family photos tell tales.
