ECLECTIC INDUSTRIAL DREAM HOME ON THE RIVER - Nine Mile Falls, WA

This home has an undeniable perfect location close to Spokane and sitting along the river. The size of the home and setting was perfect for the clients but the interior was confusing and hiding a lot of the original beautiful architecture that was original to the home. The beams and trim were painted green and the space was cut up into small rooms that blocked site lines and complicated the form and function. We gutted the first floor and reworked the staircase to provide more room for the Kitchen, Living, and Dining Room. All of the paint was removed from the beams and new trim was installed throughout. The clients were avid art and antique collectors so we were inspired by their existing collection and the unique style. The end result is a beautiful home that is open and functions perfectly. It embraces the personality of the clients as well as the surrounding nature.

RUSTIC FARMHOUSE MASTER SUITE - Nine Mile Falls, WA

This home sits in a beautiful country setting and the homeowners wanted to update the Master Suite to a comfortable, relaxing space they could escape to. The original space was closed off and underwhelming. By shifting some walls around, expanding the master bathroom, and converting an extra bedroom into a large closet, the new suite fit the homeowners needs to a tee. With some classic farmhouse styling and the addition of some unique pieces and materials, the outcome was functional and beautiful.

COASTAL ESCAPE IN THE INLAND NORTHWEST - Spokane, WA

We took a dark basement and brightened it up to feel cozy and inviting for the entire family to enjoy. The clients were inspired by a resort they visit frequently on the California coast so our goal was to embrace the coastal, airy feel with a sophisticated and refined finish. Built ins now surround the wood stove and wrap the corner to create a cozy reading nook and entertainment center.

SOUTH HILL LUXURIOUS BATHROOM - Spokane, WA

This small, single bathroom on the main floor was dark and tight. The homeowners wanted to make it feel larger, remove the tub, and create a bright and luxurious space. We were able to add light finishes, different textures, and clean lines to enhance to overall design. By having the tile continue from the bathroom to the shower with nothing but a piece of glass dividing the space, it make the space feel much larger than it did before.

MEAD MASTER SUITE ADDITION - Spokane, WA

We worked with this client to create a separate Master wing that both achieved a space for the parents to retreat to but also created some functional areas to help the entire family. The 700 SF addition consisted of a Master Suite, Office, Laundry, Mudroom, and Powder Room. We honored the existing homes architecture and style while adding some interesting textures to create dimension and interest.

FAMILY & FRIENDS GATHERING - Portland, OR

What once was dark and closed off is now open and the focal point of the entire home. The Kitchen was a small closed off galley style with no option to interact with the Dining or Living spaces adjacent. We took down the wall and re-worked the space to open and brighten the room. The clients wanted an organic design that used natural elements, textures, and color. We were able to reuse the cabinets by painting them a soft gray. The detailed wood wall was inspired by Native American artwork and patterns. The table and chairs were already owned by the client and were found at an antique store in Montana, they fit perfectly in the space. The owners are now able to host family and friends in a large space which makes for a perfect setting for gatherings.

 

SMALL BUT BOLD - Portland, OR

A small bungalow in NE Portland was in need of a bathroom update. It was a quant space with original olive green shower surround and undistinguishable finishes. It did however have beautiful original trim and built ins that were important to keep. The homeowner was brave enough to go with a bold design which paid off in the end. Large hex tiles in dark gray were installed on the floors and half way up the walls to create a dramatic look. Subway tiles were applied to the upper half of the shower divided by a small glass tile liner. The original medicine cabinet, trim, and door knobs were kept to add a unique touch to the newly designed space.

 

HENRY PENTHOUSE - Portland, OR

The homeowners wanted our help to transform their new penthouse condo in Portland into a home that was as comfortable as their East Coast residence of 20 years. To add warmth and style, we installed 6" wood base and dramatic colors on the walls. We also custom designed the fireplace cabinet to both hide equipment and add a strong architectural element to the previously generic "white-box" space. The project was featured on the cover of Portrait of Portland.
