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.
My clients called me in to assist them with their basement renovation. This space was originally the garage and had been converted to a guest bedroom. When we discussed options for this area in the home, both homeowner’s expressed a need for a retreat within their house. The husband wanted an office he could work from during the day and the wife wanted a retreat for where she could practice yoga. The end result is a combination of both of their desires. There is a TV set that pulls out from the side of the stone wall, that allows them to entertain or watch movies, but it also tucks away. The shelving, on both sides of the stone wall, allows them to stash office supplies, stereo equipment and yoga weights from view. The triple barn door wall adds visual interest. The double barn door section conceals the utility area and the electric panel from the rest of the space.
I was called in to assist the Dayton Racquet Club for a fourth project. This time, we opened up a few walls to expose an underutilized and out-dated bar. We had a tight budget, so the contractor reworked some of the old bar materials and we gave a new life to this space. Quartz counter-tops, pendant lights and back-lit, textured wall panels are just a few of the new elements. We also added tile plank flooring and refaced the old bar with new wood panels. I think the back-lit wall panels are my favorite element. Photos by Mark Bealer of Studio 66.
This was a great renovation project. The original bathroom had a soaker tub located directly under the window. By eliminating the soaking tub, we were able to move the location of the bathroom door. The new configuration allowed for a storage bench and extended shower in lieu of the soaking tub. Moving the doorway towards the window also gave the vanity area (not pictured) better use of the bathroom space. Porcelain tile give the look of a stone material without all of the maintenance.
