I am SO excited to share the Fireclay Tile Project Spotlight on our master bathroom. It is a great behind the scenes look at the project and gives more background on how and why I selected Fireclay for our shower. Check it out here!
Designing our master bathroom was a challenge to say the least. It’s the only bathroom on our second floor, I was VERY pregnant and as always, I had a vision for the space. However, in this case I skipped over the meticulous plan that I would normally have for any other project. Enter analysis paralysis and becoming my own worst client! Nevermind all that. Let’s breakdown the space and enjoy the journey:)

The deep rooted inspiration was to have the bathroom feel like an extension of the outdoors. The skylights bring so much of the outdoors in and I wanted all of the materials to follow that lead. Bottom left: quartz for the vanity, shower curb, shower niches and bench. Bottom right: contractor sketch on the wall for the bench and outside niche that holds extra TP.

Welcome back for Part II of the Bell House Project Reveal!
Right in the middle of the main floor at Bell House is a butler’s pantry/wet bar that needed a facelift along with the rest of the kitchen cabinets. The cabinets were original to the house and screamed mid-2000s.

The Bell House project in North Center was a complete main floor overhaul. Our clients moved into this beautiful home after being in a two bedroom condo which allowed us to start almost from scratch. The design direction from the client was to: create a bright, family-friendly, cohesive vibe throughout all of the spaces. We did some painting and light fixture updates on the second floor and basement office, but the bulk of the work was targeted in the entry, formal living, kitchen, eat-in kitchen, family room and mudroom. Part I of the Bell House Project Reveal will feature the formal living room and entry. Stay tuned for Part II coming soon!

This Uptown condo needed new life after a previous full gut-rehab left some unfinished painting and lack of a cohesive feel. For this project, our vision was simple: create open and inviting spaces with the sunroom serving as the focal point when you enter the front door.
BEFORE - SUNROOM
A major area to address were these expansive east-facing windows. The heaviness of the original blinds made the entire space feel closed off. While not compromising the need for privacy, we decided on a classic, cordless woven shade that allows just enough light to pass through and frames the windows effortlessly.
BEFORE - LIVING ROOM
The living room opens up into the sunroom, so we wanted to continue the light and airy feel into this space. By reusing the console and some of the vases, placing matching lamps and hanging a round mirror, it anchored this portion of the room.
BEFORE - GUEST BEDROOM
The guest bedroom had become a catch all and our client wanted it to feel welcoming to visitors. We simplified the color palette with crisp linens and added furniture with clean lines to showcase the symmetry of the bed centered between the windows.
We are thrilled to have you here.
This blog will showcase the details of our projects and give an inside perspective on how the work was approached. We will also share how to tackle common design dilemmas and make the most of your spaces. May you be here for inspiration, guidance or simply a lover of digesting beautiful designs, I hope you enjoy it!
