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.

River Rocks

November 29th, 2015

River rocks are shaped by hundreds or even thousands of years of  rushing water giving them and inherent sense of longevity and natural time.  I really enjoy using river rock and pebbles in my landscape design.  They add texture and contrast as well as serve as borders or ground cover.   At the Portland Street of Dreams this year several of the houses had incorporated river rock.  I especially like how in some of these beds the river rock ends organically by tapering off.
