Behind The Design-Episode 1

We are so very excited to announce our new webisode series "Behind the Design" which takes you deeper into the thought process behind some of our favorite projects from the point of view of our design team who worked on them. From commercial spaces to different homes, all with distinct looks and layouts, we can not wait to show off these amazing features.

Be on the look out for more Behind the Design episodes, coming soon!

 

The Design Studio

This commercial space is filled with design elements that help inspire the design team who works out of it. Trim details, wood flooring, modern lighting and furnishings make this small space feel upscale, light, bright and open.

 

Our first three episodes are up now and they include our new design studio, a lowcountry modern home and a more traditionally rustic home. All three are completely different in look, feel and design and give you an array of ideas, examples and overall esthetic. 

The Forgotten Spaces

We know you’ve done your research, the hours upon hours of scouring Pinterest, Houzz, Blogs, Instagram and Facebook to find those amazing ideas for the perfect kitchen, bath or maybe master bedroom. But what about stair landings, owner entry, mudrooms, front doors and the other spaces that seem less important? 

Our new Discovery process allows for every inch of your new home to be discussed and thoughtfully planned with direction from professionals that are in the business of making your dream a reality?

Mudrooms can be a huge asset in the functionality and livability of your home.

It allows for all the unwanted “stuff” that sometimes can trickle into your living space to be thoughtfully put away in its own little space before it has a chance to invade your other rooms. Built ins, cubbies, shelving, desks, electronic stations, shoe racks, hangers, hooks, calendars, clocks and more can exist in this space and change your life for the better. Why not even give this space some pizazz with a funky light fixture or patterned tile? Enjoy this space by making it into the perfect happy place when you enter your home.

Landings can be tricky.

Usually a wasted are of sq footage at the top of a staircase, so many times can be overlooked and underwhelming. Design can turn this around by making use of this wasted space in terms of giving it an identity. It can take on many different forms, such as a study area, quiet TV watching room, kids play room, storage, office, chill space. All of these can enhance the overall usefulness of your home.

Front doors are often an afterthought, even though they are the first thing your guests see when visiting your home. Make it warm, inviting, welcoming, open, bright, light, dramatic and much more by choosing the right material, color, design and window combo. There are so many options and looks you can create with this one choice. Let our design team help make the perfect one a reality. 

 
 

Master Bath Design

The bathroom is a lovely necessity that we have turned into luxurious spaces where we spend lots of time. Most of our clients take this room very seriously and our designers work hard to bring both functionality and personality into this space. It used to be in days gone by, if there were one tiny sink, a little toilet and a tub/shower combo it was a huge win. Any one of those renovation shows on TV will show that in older homes, even if there were an on suite bath off the master, it wasn’t very impressive, and that’s always one of the very first things on the plans.

The baths we have had a part in building for our wonderful clients usually consist of 4 main features.

Bath Tubs

Who doesn’t imagine long, hot baths after a long day? Even if it only happens every blue moon, it’s so nice to dream of this as an option that you could take advantage of every evening. Our clients’ take the bath seriously and look forward to picking the very best one for them. They come in many shapes, sizes and silhouettes including the traditional claw foot, the more formal oval with a pedestal or the clean modern rectangle or oval. Whichever you choose, this feature is sure to be a huge benefit in the relaxation arena.

Color

If you read our last blog on trends in 2019, you would’ve learned that color is super “in” this year! Baths are no exception! GO bold, brave or stay neutral and calming. Either way, make the space something you can enjoy. Use color on the cabinetry with a cool background color or tile choices or go bold with the tile to make a statement. Trim is even a place to choose colors to accent the feel of your fixtures and space.

Storage

 
 

Places to keep all things bathroom related is so important in any master bath. Whether its cabinetry with lots of cubbies, drawers and shelves or its built in bookcases for all those towels or décor to bring life into the space, storage is super important.

Showers

This space is usually much more used than that gorgeous tub, so its important the material and design of the shower fits your needs. Tile can be beautiful but also purposeful in its finish. While benches and a perfectly placed niche can bring its usefulness to a new level and allow one to shave and bathe with ease!

 

SO much to think about to make your master bath perfect for the way YOU use it. But we have 4 amazing designers to help with every step and design a space that is both gorgeous and useful!
