Happy Halloween!

October 30th, 2012

I wanted to share a simple and fun Halloween idea from my wonderful friend and client Cindy Gardner. Her inspiration came from Gardner village a few years ago when she saw some spooky ghosts blowing in the wind and wanted to recreate the same look. She sketched ghosts on some old sheets, cut out the silhouettes and then tacked them to the eaves of her front porch.

Isn’t this the best DIY idea? I have already set aside some old sheets and will be hanging ghosts at my home just in time for the trick-or-treaters!

Custom Residence in Bountiful

A few years ago I had the opportunity to design a custom home for some great clients. They currently have the home up for sale so I jumped at the chance to share photos. I love the images of the home at night with the leaves changing colors in the background. The home is located on Ridge Hill Drive in Bountiful, Utah.

In landscape design although it is often hard to see what plants can become, it is important to recognize the scale of how they will eventually work with your house. This is why I love landscape design! At my own home what started on a small scale has grown and come together as I had envisioned and my backyard now has a serene canyon feel to it.

Today we continue the tour of my home with a look at the basement and casita. I designed the casita and garage it sits above to complement the home. I remodeled the basement along with the rest of the house when I purchased it. You can see previous pictures of the bedroom/craft room as well as the casita to see the changes!

Every house can use a little tweak once in a while. I recently did so to my home and thought I would share. If you would like to see interior pictures a few years ago after I remodeled the home, click here. Today we tour the main level.

Have a peek inside a home I just finished installing for a lovely client. I always enjoy the opportunity to design an entire home from floor plan to interiors. Add an ideal client and the whole process is a joy! She had seen a model home I did in Entrada and wanted me to recreate the same feel for her.
