Gorgeous green spaces are our specialty

Growing up in the construction industry, being on jobsites with my Mom has taught me not to fear the changes and chaos that comes with a remodel. As was pointed out to me by a wise client however, that it’s not the same for everyone. Changes can be quite daunting, so much so that people don’t start even though they are painfully aware and wanting a change. I have become sensitive to that uncertainty in others and do my best to put them at ease. I hear things like,

“I know what I like and don’t like, but I am not sure how to get there.”

 “There are too many choices, I don’t know how to start.”

“It’s such a lot of work.”

“I don’t have any color sense at all.”

 The truth is, -This is supposed to be fun! Imagine having a place or a room in your home, that speaks to your soul, it is a reflection of you and your family and how you live? How would that feel? What would it be like to walk into your kitchen and smile everyday instead of grimacing over the cabinets or doors falling off the hinges. 

What if, we could make it fun?

My approach is to do just that. I listen to what you are wanting, what I hear you ask for time and time again. I come to your home and see what items mean something to you and why. I get to know you. When I make a home appointment I ask the person to provide me with three items in the home that speak to them. Whether it be an item of clothing or a piece of art, or artifact from one of their travels. Each one of us becomes attached and chooses to surround ourselves with those items. Then there are colors that you gravitate towards, earth tones, or bright tropical shades, you know what I mean. Durability, and expectations or maintenance of your surfaces are put into the equation. It is a process and it often takes time to come up with a plan you can be excited about. Planning and having a framework feels better that sitting still and wondering. Truth is, I love what I do. Spending time with people and helping them realize their dream spaces is a dream come true for me.

Even with countertops and tile or flooring chosen, you aren’t left on your own, I often can and will supply complimentary paint colors to finish the scheme. It’s a  service I am offering to clients, a whole experience, a plan and a change that is manageable. Do you see a new kitchen or bath in your future? In 2011? I would love to chat and brainstorm with you.

After all, you can’t get anywhere, standing still.

It had everything just needed some uumph. New countertops in a bamboo look laminate with long subway tiles in neutral shades of cocoa and gray. The paint colors added to the art gallery effect. This  smooth looking and urban feel condo will dazzle for company, and feel homey at the same time. Kitchen and two bathrooms with a nice cohesive look. It’s what we do.

Beautiful Recycled content and locally made Fuez in City Lights and Snoqualmie pick up the light that bounces around this kitchen. It’s rich blue-gray Fireclay tile mixed with a border of white rock and rasberry colored liner bars are colors loved by the homeowners. New paint colors and the existing oak cabinets make the kitchen feel new again. This space came out really nice, and fits well with the manicured and green backyard you can’t help but notice in the large picture window over the sink. Just shows what a difference new counters and backsplash can make in a space. Can you imagine yours yet?

What a great event to help the Hough foundation. You have to love Vancouver people for traveling from shop to shop in the pouring rain to taste local wines and beers for a charity. We are a great community. SO much fun that night as we hosted folks from the Laurelwood Brewery. Great libations indeed. We will be participating next year I am sure. Look forward to seeing you there. Thanks everyone for making it such a great night!
