2x Best of Houzz - Customer Service

For the 2nd year in a row, it’s an honor to receive the "Best of Houzz" award. I've continued to enjoy connecting with the Houzz community on projects near and far! I’m excited to share how so many of these projects wrapped up in the past year. Stay tuned — and looking forward to working with more families in 2019!

Project Reveal: Coming Home to Bay Meadows

For S+R’s townhome, one of the key goals was to bring warmth to the space, to feel welcoming to all who come through the door. A beloved expression sharing family mantras became the inspiration of the design.

In this house:
We laugh… a lot.
We try our best.
We are patient…most of the time.
We support each other.
We hug often.
We make mistakes.
We never give up.
We always forgive.
We keep our promises.
We always have fun.
But above all we love.

The artwork became the centerpiece and reminder at the front entryway. Family photos line the hallway and stairs to evoke fond memories. Bookends on the console are a small reminder of S+R’s hometowns. The natural textures in the runners, bench and shoe baskets add to the feeling of a warm and welcoming home.


Best of Houzz - Customer Service

Since joining the Houzz platform in 2017, it was a goal to work toward a "Best of Houzz" honor -- so it was a very proud day to receive the Best of Houzz Customer Service award for our work in 2017. I've had a lot of fun connecting with the Houzz community on projects near and far whether on full room designs or on quick design tips to get a project over the finish line!

Looking forward to more in 2018!

Project Reveal: Contemporary French Victorian Bedroom

It's really true how you can live in a place for years and it never really feels ...right... as if it's temporary, and not a finished product. We can all get caught up by the responsibilities of work, the kids' after-school schedules, catching up with friends and the general go, go, go of life.

So curating a thoughtful and functional space it gets pushed to the back-burner. However, like the saying goes, there's no time like the present! It's with that embrace that started this project. We started with a large master bedroom with high ceilings and the finished product was a place to relax in with warm velvet textured bench, cotton-linen bedding and soft, romantic lighting.

She loved the charm of French Victorian style but didn't want the room to feel too "old". We managed to highlight some of that inspiration with touches with the floral distressed rug, the frame of the art piece, the lacquer wooden jewelry box, and crystal pendent chandelier. 

I have really enjoying seeing this project come to life and sad it's over! In the next post, I'll show how we used 3D design and renders to help my client visualize the space before picking up her wallet or paint brush!
