I’m settling into my remodel house while I build my future home Val-ore House.  The last few details have been added including the fireplace surround. I had concrete fabricated to look to like soapstone.

Here is a look at the fireplace before and during the remodel. What do you think?

I named the home Fairview cottage and wanted it to have a quaint feeling. The cabinets in the kitchen were too current for a cottage feel, so I added color to create charm and add dimension to the space.

In the dining nook I painted the walls High Reflective White by Sherwin Williams. I added some interior details below the windows and had a custom phrase hand painted above the windows.

Fairview Cottage Master Bedroom

Welcome to the master bedroom at Fairview Cottage. I was working with an intentionally small bedroom, which is one of the characteristics I love about older homes. The before and after images show how placement of furniture and art can make any size room feel well balanced.
Fairview Cottage Master Bedroom Before & After
I used the bedframe to create the feeling of a room within a room. The widow wasn’t centered on the wall so I added artwork to create balance with the window.

Placing the armoire at an angle adds dimension to the room, and the plants bring life. I try to keep the blinds at the same height in any room and then add varying height through other elements like the wreath and stacked blankets.

Whatever the size of your bedroom you can use the same techniques of balance, symmetry, spacing and dimension to create a feeing of welcome and calm rather than disproportion and disorder.

I am in the process of building my next home and decided in the interim to buy a little house in downtown Bountiful. I wanted to take on one of the challenges that I hear from so many of you: how can I make a big impact with small affordable changes. I selected a well built home with simple clean straight lines. Welcome to my new home Fairview Cottage!

Here is the before:
Fairview Cottage Exterior
I started by painting the exterior of the home, the carport, and the garage SherwinWilliams Shell White. I added shutters the length of the door and painted all exterior doors and trim SherwinWilliams Peppercorn. I found the planters while I was in California at one of my favorite garden stores.

Fairview Cottage Details
If you’ve followed my work you’ll know that a cupola and a weathervane a top each of my homes is one of my signature details.

One of the features I quite liked about the home was the carport that could be utilized as a porte-cochere. I love the idea that you can be dropped off and unload your belonging and then head into the garage. I added detail to the ceiling of the porte-cochere to help customize the exterior of the home.

Here is a peak at the backyard. There is a covered patio off the garage and I’ll share more of this space once spring rolls around and I can start using it. Behind the back fence I created a large fenced area where my dog Bernard can run and play.

Yalecrest Addition and Remodel

January 3rd, 2016

A house with a lot of charm!

This remodel was of an older home in the Yalecrest area of Salt Lake.  The home was full of charm, but in need of a master bedroom.  The original house had an attached one car garage with a small mezzanine above the single bay.  I added a second bay to the garage and created a new master suite above the garage area.  I also changed the windows on the south elevation to french doors leading out to a new courtyard area.  The results were magnificent!

I love wallpaper!!!  Wallpaper has the ability to add depth, texture, pattern, color and personality to a room.  I have a great client working on remodel that is going to use these two wallpapers in her home.  Both these wallpapers will add a lot of interest.  Pictures of the remodel will be coming soon, so you can see these papers in actions.dog wallpaper

Kitchen Remodel

This kitchen underwent huge a transformation!  Without gaining any square footage this remodel was able to open up the space significantly.  When comparing the existing floor plan to the new floor plan it is amazing to see how space can be used so much more effectively.  If you are the type of person who wants to maximize the space and potential of your house call us for discovery meeting.

Landscaping

In landscape design I like to use lots of textures and layers created with plants, pots and yard adornments.  At my studio I have white blooms, red accents and a dense green background.  My studio blooms in white roses, white daisies, a magnolia tree, and hydrangeas.  I love the potted red maples out front.  The yard adornments vary from the decorative white picket fence to lanterns and metal garden art peeking through all the wonderful plants.
