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.
Home and Home Office Client Photos
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 home owner had a nice designated room set aside for a home office, but things had gotten “out of control”. We worked together to sort through everything, relocate non-office items to other places in the home, created filing and storage systems, and procedures for keeping things both aesthetically and functionally harmonized.
This homeowner was heading into the holiday season with a strong desire to “finally get things under control” so her family could enjoy their home. We sorted through everything, purged some and found a place for everything else. By repositioning the furniture the whole room was used effectively and everything was easily accessible.
This client moved into this home and one of our first tasks was to strip out the old closet. A new closet was designed and installed customized to accommodate the client’s specific amount of hanging, folded items and number of shoes.
It’s easy to see how overwhelming this garage was for the client. Besides all the standard family items (bikes, balls, coolers, etc.) this client also had a business bringing music to children with challenges. It was important to make everything easily accessible so it could all be put back easily. There was the standard sorting, purging and categorizing, but the key was the industrial shelving that ensured the system would not only last for years to come, but would also be transferrable if the family moved.
Sometimes it’s necessary to fit a home office in wherever possible. In this case the client had a home office tucked into the corner of the one bedroom in her condo. Together we streamlined the materials necessary to run both a home and and office from one desk space area. Work included sorting, purging, file creation, shelf rearrangement, and improving the overall efficiency and aesthetics of the space.
