Accent tiles can add a lot of charm and individuality to a home.  I like to pick tiles that not only fit in the space but also speak to me.  I like to collect tiles while I travel or even have them custom screen printed.   Here are some pictures of unique accent tile applications.

If your looking for a new flooring solution, try layering rugs.  Pairing and arranging rugs offers a lot of versatility to your design.  I often start with a larger neutral rug such as a sisal and then add rugs with color and patterns on top.  With your  larger rug being a bit more economical it may allow you  to spend more on a smaller high quality rug to place on top.  Great texture and depth may be created with multiple rugs.  Try mixing patterns or placing them on interesting angles.

Custom Pool House

June 12th, 2015

I designed this pool house last summer and it is being put to full use this season!  Outdoor living spaces have become increasing important to people in their home design.  Creating this pool house with a kitchenette and sitting area is a great way to increase the use of the pool area.  Enjoy the summer weather!

Roof Vents, Chimney Caps, Cupolas, Weathervanes and Spires!

Roof details are commonly overlooked although they can have a great impact.  Here are a few of my favorite roof details from through the years.
