Kitchen Expansion

The awkward kitchen did not fit the needs of a growing family. The island was not functional, there was not a work space and kitchen disjointed from the home. Aesthetics of the kitchen was enhanced with light and dark contrasting materials. Light Irish crème Flur de Lis deco and Ahnzu’s Folio tiles behind the range were set on a Cambria Azul countertop and a lighter granite top were set on darker island cabinetry. Soft illumination…

If you are a fan of the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins and Tuskegee University, this is the room for you.

Repurposed Wine Cellar

This subterranean mechanical room was home to the son’s make-shift rock band rehearsal studio, complete with sound mixing equipment and a drum set. A mahogany racking system had been designed and built to fit a previous project that was cancelled due to lack of funds in the declining market.

Scamper up 3 steps to the kitchen or slip out the back to the hot tub. A jaguar goes on the floating shelf over the window, not in the garage.

Flush floor plans with universal design elements are making it easier for people of all ages to…

Bellagio Master

The design criteria involved completely updating materials and improving natural lighting without changing the layout. The owner’s physical limitations and inability to stand comfortably required the need to provide seating at her vanity and in the shower. The homeowner’s vision of a Bellagio-style bathroom includes polished marble and travertine tiles, satin nickel plumbing fixtures and Antique Crème painted cabinetry. Her vanity was detailed with fluted columns and carvings so that the sink could be brought…
