Our musings, inspirations, and designs

Custom Happens The Modern Lakehouse with a lot of personality Every so often a client comes around that is unexpected. We have many clients that we fall in love with after we start working with them.  Some even become like family.  We know their kids and pets and we are melancholy when the project is […]

Laundry rooms can be messy but with organization can be a great place to do chores.

  Laundry Rooms. We often see so many of them by accident. Let me explain what I mean. We started a new client’s home today.  Most of the home is changing structurally but as we walked past the laundry room, Mrs. looked at me and said, “This is such a disaster. I feel like I […]

As a long designing firm, we have seen trends come and go. The kitchen, as the heart of the home, is an area that is constantly focused on. Glossy black cabinets, red islands, brass, brushed nickel and copper. Everyone is battling to star in the show that is prime time in most of our homes. […]

The Rug Really Ties The Room Together…..     Inspiration can come from the most unexpected places.   We received a phone call in October from a gentleman who had a story to tell. He was mild mannered and spoke with intention. However, was a little hesitant to even speak to us. Unfortunately, he had already experienced working with […]
