I am working on three projects right now where I was pulled in during the schematic phase.  One is an addition/renovation, and the other two are new construction.  I am excited about each of them and the teams involved.

I love being hired for a project early on, as there is a synergistic effect that takes place among creative minds that results in a more beautiful home.   It’s important to hire all members of your team early on, as this makes changes occur sooner rather than once ground has been broken (which saves you $$$).

Working on a home from ground up is like birthing a baby-  I become vested more and more each day  and I grow to love each of them for different reasons.
As I am discussing interior details on each of these projects, I have been looking to Pinterest for inspiration.    Here are a few I have pinned for certain reasons…..

 

I love this hardware. We have spent some time picking out hardware for #ProjectExpansion, and this is very similar to what we selected for their home.

#ProjectExpansion has a door at the end of a hallway, and we are going to create something like this for uniqueness and detail.  I love how a simple wall here has become a beautiful focal point. We are creating a jib door to a linen closet that will be hidden by nails and leather.  With it being a focal point, leaving it as an ordinary door just wouldn’t cut it.

 

Love this nailhead detail in the entry...clean and sophisticated

This bathroom is beautiful. The waterfall countertops and cabinets create a more modern and clean look, and you will see something similar in style for the master.

These floors remind me we are going to create a pattern out of wood on one of the floors in our #LakeTuscaloosa project.  While the pattern will be different than this one and the color of the wood tweaked (we haven’t even broken ground), it’s going to be just-if not more-beautiful.

As mentioned in a previous post, your bedroom should be a place to retreat, and this window seat screams that to me. The #LakeTuscaloosa home is home to girls and we are working on incorporating a cozy niche/window seat in at least one of the bedrooms.

Don’t you want to curl up with a good book?!  I do!

The placement of this powder room under the stairs is exactly what we are creating in  #ProjectVestavia.  I love how it is tucked away, not only by being under the stairs, but by being hidden within the woodwork.

As you can see, Pinterest is one of my “go-to’s” when I am looking to be inspired.  There is nothing better than crawling in bed with my Ipad at the end of a long day and pinning a few images to make my creative juices flow.

With the weather turning colder, we are excited to be working on a renovation/addition to a condo at Lake Martin.  Yes, it’s still cold there, but at least it allows us an opportunity to think of summertime fun.

This retreat will have a new kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor living spaces. We are designing a custom banquette for the kitchen and the side porch to allow for lots of seating for family and friends.

 

Our client’s focus is all about making memories instead of being worried about making a mess, and we couldn’t agree more. The lake is supposed to be a place for less stress and more fun.

 

With a house full of children and grandchildren, we plan to use a lot of outdoor and durable fabrics.

 

As you can see below, our color inspirations are gray, plum, taupe and cream.

Stay tuned for more updates on this project.  Have a great day!
