Christmas Party at Em’s

December 18th, 2012

We had our staff Christmas party at the delicious Em’s Restaurant. If you haven’t been, I highly recommend it. It’s located at 271 North Center Street in downtown Salt Lake City. The location is charming and the food is amazing! I am so grateful for my wonderful staff. Merry Christmas to all!

I came across a listing for the Brinton-Dahl house that I remodeled earlier this year on the cityhome Collective site. I thought their write-up about the home was quite charming:
Our Opinion: 1885 was clearly a bang-up year for homes. Add a touch of 2012, and you’ve got a bit of magic. Timeless decor, rooms galore. More custom features than you can shake a 120-year-old stick at. Interior, stone wall has the feel of an English cottage; it’s sleekness juxtaposed with cozy. Custom bedrooms for the wee ones and their very own crafting corner. Beautiful, two-toned kitchen, claw-foot tub, and a million other interior surprises. Ornate and detailed exterior, complete with some amazing deck spaces. Basically, you’ll be living somewhere between a lovely, southern estate and a good Jane Austen novel.

The whole idea of design is hopefully to make it memorable… like looking at a great painting; you want to have an impression made upon you. I have had so many people contact me about the architecture and interior design elements that I made a part of this home. I am pleased this has been an impressionable space for many.

Edge Detail

I am currently working with a couple clients on kitchen remodels. Every detail can add personality into otherwise simple aspects of an updated kitchen. The edge detail for your counter top can be as important as the material you choose for a counter top.
