Master Bathroom Update

Carpet on the floor, dated oak cabinets and dingy lighting was what we had to work with before this remodel. Our client requested light and bright with timeless character. This floor tile steals the show with it’s soft pattern and allows all of the other bathroom features to play second fiddle.
A freestanding soaker tub was another one of her requirements. The awkward corner of this room was the perfect spot for it and we wanted the faucet to be another strong feature in the space.
I kept the shower monochromatic to allow the decorative floor tile to shine the most.

Gold accents are the perfect compliment to the matte black faucets. And pops of green give the otherwise gray and white bathroom some organic life.





So glad I got to give these clients the bathroom they’ve been waiting for!

Entry Makeover

This entry had a knotty alder door, art alcoves and dated tile floor when we began. Changing the flooring, filling in the alcoves and staining the front door gave it the modern update that we were hoping for.
Adding texture with this live edge table and these rattan stools give interest and depth to the space. The gold accents help to tie in the new door hardware.
The gold hardware pops against the newly stained black door and this gallery wall featuring family photos is a welcoming sight for guests.
If possible I always like to offer a station to set bags down and hooks for coats and purses. This bench and these hooks right around the corner do just that for my client while allowing the main entry area to stay free from clutter.

This light is a highlight in the space. I love adding drama with the entry light and this black and gold modern chandelier is the perfect compliment for the entry decor.
Having a welcoming entry is key in any home and I think we accomplished just that with this update.

Small Space Laundry Room

For such a small space we needed a lot of functionality to meet all of her needs. The first step was putting in a barn door so the door didn’t take up valued space inside the room.
Barn doors are such great space savers as well as a pretty focal point.
With it being such a small space we wanted a tile that had a high impact. A pretty pattern that adds so much to the room.
Lots of hampers to hold lots of laundry were the next necessity. These are easy to move around and lightweight.
A shelf above the hamper to hold more sorting baskets and a large drying rack on the wall so she doesn’t have to use her hallway upstairs anymore made this side of the laundry room super functional.
And finally this pretty side with a cabinet to house the not so pretty items and a sconce and open shelving to display the pretty items.
A cute laundry room makes laundry day so much better:)

Moody Mudroom

This mudroom is small so I wanted to pack a big punch with all of the finishes. Charcoal gray penny tiles on the floor, black cabinets and wall, herringbone barn door and gold accents seemed like the perfect solution.

Drawers for hidden storage and open shelving for items they wanted easy access to works great for all of their mudroom needs.

A wall with closets for extra storage, a wall mounted vacuum and cleaning supplies keeps them hidden but easily accessible.




Shiplap is the perfect backdrop for these gold hooks and finish off the room with a pretty detail.




Finally this pretty barndoor by @thechaderbox was the solution we needed to hide the room when necessary and give us more space instead of having to accommodate and swinging door. Pretty and functional never looked better:)




SLC Soel Boutique

This boutique was our second store that we designed in 2018 and such a great project! This is their second location, the first one being in Orem, UT, and has been such a long time coming. They carry women’s clothing, home decor and children’s items- kind of your one stop shop for everything cute and original that you need in your life. Let’s just say I’m a big fan of the store. Every furniture item (except the wood tables with metal legs and metal clothing racks) was designed by me and custom built by @thechaderbox (my hubby) and designed to fit exactly what was needed to display in the store. The aesthetic of this store is natural and organic materials with a clean look and upscale feel. Casual but sophisticated.

Black & White Master Bath

This bathroom was dated and wasn’t making the best use of the space (it’s BIG) so it was time for a total re-do. Of course this tile is the star of the show so we basically started there for the design.


They have 10′ tall ceilings and the glass was only 7′ high before so we utilized the whole space by giving them a steam shower and tiling the ceiling as well.




Matte black hardware in the shower pops so great off of all of the white tile.

The small black cabinet on the vanity was the perfect place to house all of their every day items to keep their counters clutter free.




Mixing metals with the brass and gold is one of my favorite combinations.
We carried the subway tiles over to go behind the freestanding tub to tie it in with the shower tiles.




Black and white with wood accents wins every time in my book!

Laundry/Craft Room

This family needed a space for the whole family to work in. Laundry sorting and folding and project and homework doing were the key needs for the space. My first goal was to give them more lighting as well as multiple work surfaces.

This beautiful custom waterfall countertop is the perfect way to house their washer and dryer, as well as give them a space for all of their sorting and folding needs. I used these sconces on both sides of the room for functionality as well as I love the look.




I utilized every corner of the room for displaying containers and bins to house all of their crafting and laundry needs.

This simple wall detail adds so much interest to the room and is the perfect affordable way to fill simple white walls.




A sink and laundry sorters were some of her requests so I gave her just that. I chose this blue paint for the cabinets called Wedgewood Gray from Benjamin Moore to brighten the space and add some much needed color.

My fave piece in the room is this custom, counter height table sitting in the middle of the room that is perfect for folding laundry, doing school projects, sewing, or whatever their hearts desire!




A simple picture ledge can display kids artwork or family pictures to personalize the space.

So glad we were able to give this family a functioning and beautiful space that they can all feel welcome in:)

Updated Transitional Kitchen

One of my client’s first requests were this apron front sink. Such a pretty feature in the space. We also added open shelves on either side of the window and removed the heavy alder cabinetry. Adding sconces above the shelving offered the extra lighting they needed in those corners.
Adding blue to the island and base of the kitchen brightened the space and added so much visual interest.

Glass front cabinets kept this wall open and airy. And these gold pendants are the star of the show.

The black hood gives the much needed contrast on the white wall.




I designed the trashcan on the end of the island so it doesn’t block the walkway when opened. This is one of my favorite features of the space.

We kept their wood trim and shutters which compliment the wood shelving, blue and white perfectly.
The barn door to them mudroom was the perfect space saver for the space.
She had no pantry space so we gave her a whole wall with a double pantry and butler’s pantry, floor to ceiling. This added so much more storage and space for groceries, as well as a spot for all of her appliances.
Matte black faucets tie in the black hood perfectly.




Wood accents tie the whole space together.
Stacked 3×12 subway tiles keep the space modern and bright.
