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.

Last fall eSpokes opened a new store in Daybreak, Utah.  I designed the interior of the first eSpokeks store in St. George and was glad to know eSpokes was expanding and that I was able to be a part of the process.  Espokes sells and services electronic bikes.  They have a variety of bikes that offer different kinds of electronic assist while pedalling.  These bikes are so much fun!  I actually purchased one for myself.  It’s a sweet looking black cruiser that flies up the hills.

35 years ago I designed the Maple Hills condos in Bountiful.  It was such cutting edge design for the time, with courtyards in the center and private patios for each condo.  The condos are still great and I like seeing how well the design has held up to the test of time.  However, 35 years later they may be in need of a little updating.  One of my old clients has bought a condo and hired me to design the remodel.

On the main floor I updated the master suite with a large walk-in closet and a private bathroom.   These changes were possible due to space I gained by eliminating the courtyard.  The other bedroom on the main floor was turned into a nice laundry room and boot room that connects to the garage.  The stairs were relocated and the powder bath reconfigured.  The living room will get a facelift by changing the sliding glass doors to French doors.  The deck off the dining room is being expanded and an additional set of French doors has been added.
