I was contacted by my client to help them furnish their casual dining room, add carpeting, update lighting, add window treatments and update the paint colors. We also added a gorgeous tile back-spalsh in the kitchen. The top image shows the over-all improvements. The over-sized, rustic light chandelier is the perfect addition to the living room. It’s visual, casual and impressive. The custom made area rugs in the living room and casual dining room help define both spaces in this open floor-plan. The window treatments add color and style to both spaces. I love the new dining table and chairs. By adding a round table, we were able to maximize the number of guests that can be seated comfortably in this space.
This image captures the see-thru fireplace wall, the seating area at the end of the office desk and the edge of the custom bookcase that I designed. It also shows the overall layout of the living level of this home. This image also shows off the beautiful clerestory roof and the LED lighting that illuminates the clerestory. The TECH cable lighting spans the width of the house and disappears when you are in this space. The rust colored paint on the fireplace wall adds a pop of color and really warms up the office and dining room (not pictured). Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
This image gives you a more detailed look at the custom cabinetry that I designed for the office. The cantilevered shelves give the bookcases a visual line of interest and compliment the lines throughout the house. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
This image captures the overall living level of the home. You can see how the seating area is situated in front of the dining area. The see-thru fireplace wall divides the office from the rest of the space. The clerestory roof created a lighting challenge since we were not able to put electric into the roof. The TECH cable lighting system was used throughout the house and gives the owners the flexibility to move the individual heads along the cables as needed. The light heads also rotate 360 degrees. We also added LED lighting under the clerestory windows as a secondary source of lighting. The space glows at night when the LED lights are being used. The house is absolutely magical in person.

Nest Designs was hired by a local contractor to design the floor plan for the ECO Rehabarama home they were rehabbing. My design was based on maximizing floor space and creating a distinct look for the interior of the house. Using a barn door to divide two adjacent spaces made perfect sense. No door swing = more floor space. The bright red door also created a dramatic backdrop for the dining area. The paint color is Sherwin Williams SW7590 Red Obsession. Photo by Bealer Photographic Arts.
