I had the opportunity to design this entire home from the architecture and landscaping to the interior finishes and furnishings. In today’s world with the constant change in trends and fashions it is important to invest in quality furniture, colors and fabrics that will achieve a timeless look.

I wanted the kitchen to be timeless as well so I mixed materials, colors, and finishes. I chose a classic cherry wood stain to compliment the white throughout the kitchen and terracotta tile floors to ground it. The simpler the lines in a kitchen, the more classic is stays.

DuMc Place is located just off Main Street in Bountiful and captures views of the mountains to the east, the lake to the west, and great city scenery. This unit has the feel of a typical downtown loft with its open spaces. The project was created around the idea of designing as infill building in an urban environment. The lots were narrow and deep so I selected the shotgun style architecture you will see in each unit. It allowed me to create public, semi public and private spaces as I went deep into the lot. I worked with the courtyard concept to break up those spaces so that none of the conditioned spaces overlapped. The courtyard and garages are the only touching spaces in each of the three homes in this triplex (therefore, no sound transmission).

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!

Wallpaper

December 13th, 2015

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

My studio is ready for Christmas!  Nothing puts me more in the mood for Christmas than Christmas decorations!

The hallway with holly is hung;
The carols by choruses sung.
The tree is alight
To brighten the night
As the church bells are joyfully rung

The Lake House

December 5th, 2015

Winter is setting in at Bear Lake, but the construction continues.   It is a bit chilly for a site visit, but few places are more beautiful on a day like this with blue skies and overlooking the intense turquoise colored lake.  This lake house is really starting to take shape and will be a beautiful family gathering spot.
