National Kitchen and Bath: Kitchen Competition

This project is way back from college, but I wanted to share it with you anyways 🙂

Most of you guys know that I went to Lakeland College for their Interior Design Technology program. I adored the program and would 10/10 recommend anyone interested in this career to check out that school. Anyways, one major perk about Lakeland is that it’s credited by the NKBA {National Kitchen and Bath} Continue reading

Wolf Willow Project

These clients were so fun! It was a mother – daughter duo working on their new home with Ripplinger Homes here in the city. Those ladies and I were 100% on the same page ♥ We loved the same things, which made it even more fun when our ideas bounced off each other and created something incredible for their house! I’m always so excited when I get to work with people that enjoy making their project fun, exciting and totally designed around their family’s character + lifestyle! I’ll never get bored of being a part of such creative projects! I have been getting more opportunities to work with Ripplinger and I feel so lucky to play a small part in their projects.

Custom Ensuite Project

I love my job at Floors by Design. I get to work with so many talented people from interior designers, installers, representatives of beautiful materials, the list could go on forever. I also get to meet countless creative clients and together we come up with some pretty fun projects! This was one of those projects. I got to work with this client for over a year and her house is finally coming together and taking shape! I’m sharing some photos of the finished ensuite  and steam shower that we got to do!

Wright Project

This has been a long project in the making. Recently, I got another opportunity to work with Ripplinger Homes who was building a custom home for a local family here in the city. I’m always so excited when I get to work with people that are making their project fun, unique and totally designed around their family’s character + lifestyle! Often, I’m asked if I still like what I do: ABSOLUTELY. 100%. Never a dull moment 🙂 These clients were so fun and didn’t want to look at anything that would be considered “a safe option“. I’ll never get bored of being a part of such creative projects! I got the chance to play a very small part, but I always feel so lucky that I even get to do that much. This new custom build was going to be their dream Forever Home.

Everyone involved: trades-men, installers, designers and contractors put an immeasurable amount of time and energy into this stunning home. The clients wanted a very warm and welcoming feel; together we chose some awesome textures and finishes to give the space a timeless atmosphere. I wanted to share a couple photos with you guys of the finished house. All those who were involved in the Wright Project did an incredible job! Well done everyone!

UPDATE – Spurs: The College Bar

To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. Exactly this time last year I had finished my final project in my Interior Design program. Our school had given our class a project within the school: To redesign the college bar. My three girl friends and I worked an uncountable amount of hours redesigning the space – Our ideas bounced off each other and grew into this incredible dream. If you haven’t read my original post about this project, I would recommend you do so, because it is chalked full of our design concept photos and this post is about how I got to go see the space all finished!

Green Rose Project

I was quite excited about this home; this client was the sweetest lady you’d ever meet! She was building a custom home through Ripplinger Homes. I absolutely love getting to be a part of such wonderful, fun projects! I had the opportunity to play a very small part, but I feel so lucky that I even got to do that much 🙂 This new custom build was going to be her dream loft home. I adore loft homes – I love how the design provides privacy and allows an open concept for hosting. I think one day I would want to build a loft home – it’s so versatile.

Everyone involved: trades-men, installers, designers and contractors put an immeasurable amount of time and energy into this stunning home. The client wanted a very warm and welcoming feel and together we chose some classic materials and finishes to give the space a timeless atmosphere. I wanted to share a couple photos with you guys of the finished house after I got to go on site and see all of the incredible work the trades have done over the past while. All those who were involved in the Green Rose Project did an incredible job! Well done everyone!
