This client inherited her childhood home. It had a lot of wonderful memories, but also all the decor dated back to the 60’s and 70’s. We worked our way through the home room by room. In order to do the whole house we needed to stick to a tight budget. The living room is the first room you see when you enter and it sets the tone for the rest of the home. A few special things we did included: slipcovers for the couch and loveseat created a contemporary look without the cost of new pieces; a large wall mirror would have been cost prohibitive to remove so we had one of my client’s personal photos blown up and hung it, with fish line, over the sofa. It is now the focal point in the room instead of the mirror. The room was anchored with a large paisley print rug. The coffee table was a great addition as it can be raised to table height for eating or writing. Look for more photos from this project. . . marked with (house project) after the title.
This client struggled with fitting an extensive camera collection and home-based business into one space. Although the space was rather large most storage was around the walls. By changing around the floor plan and incorporating appropriate furniture and storage selections we were able to highlight the camera collection in display cases and shallow drawered units while making the center of the room a highly efficient work space. The result – the best of both worlds – working in an organized space surrounded by what you’re passionate about.
This client wanted to create a soothing space to see clients in her home. We were able to transform a small front room where we balanced function with aesthetics and comfort.
This home office was becoming a catch-all. There was a perfect opportunity to install a closet in a niche at one end of the room. Although it’s currently being used for office storage we installed a shelf and bar system so it can easily transition into a clothes closet. The panel system can easily be installed and the panels glide to close off the closet.
This former spare bedroom had become a catch-all and unusable. After sorting through everything and deciding what to keep, donate and toss the re-design began. We removed the carpeting, painted the walls, doors and floor and added new baseboard molding. Installing simple office furniture and lighting created a peaceful, efficient new home office.
This client called after losing a “messiest desk” contest he entered, but he got the last laugh as we were able to create an inviting, productive and efficient workspace for him and his assistant. There were years of accumulation of papers, boxes, supplies, etc. Over time we sorted through everything, created filing and storage systems, and built in plans for future expansion needs.
This client was eager to get all her information under control. Most of the file drawers were stacked with paper and the desktop clutter left her no place to actually work. By creating a customized filing system and desktop sorting system she was able to find everything easily, get a lot more work done and demonstrate a new level of professionalism and efficiency.
Paper, piles and support materials were spread out in an awkward arrangement. We re-arranged the space into an L-shaped work station and developed a functioning file system and shelving system (not photographed) to support the daily work load more efficiently.
Professionals in this industry are constantly overwhelmed with paper, marketing materials and binders of information. We created customized systems including filing, binder allocation and an outline of how to incorporate the support staff into keeping the office efficient and all the materials easily accessible.
This area was not functioning for the heavy flow of information and influx of paper. A system was created that included a revised filing system, new processing procedure and clearly labeled files and cubbies.
