Designer's Challenge: Transform a builder-appointed, non-descript space and delineate awkward areas with style and function. Perform a sizeable renovation while remaining conservative toward budget on a tight timeline. Design around existing hardwoods, carpet, and cabinetry to address budget concerns. Scope of project includes renovation of kitchen countertops and walls, select new appliances, fixtures, and lighting. Update electrical and lighting throughout all areas. Client was starting fresh with a newly purchased property and no furniture, so furniture for 2 bedrooms, living, dining, and accessories for all spaces needed to be addressed. The cllient works from home and needs meeting space for clients as well as personal work space.

Idaho Lakeside Custom Home March 25 2015
The Setting: A picturesque lakeside mountain view homesite.
The Designer’s Challenge: Maximize views of the lake and mountains in this architect designed home with massive concrete and wood beam elements, 7 fireplaces and elevator. Create a warm and inviting home for family and guests.
The Solution: Work closely with architect, contractor and owner through all design and construction phases to optimize impact of design options which included use of large scale furnishings, varied textures and colors, and unobstructed views through the grand spaces to the magnificent view. We targeted finishes and fixtures that are easy to clean and furnishings that were durable yet exceptionally comfortable. Our strategic design created a sense of spaciousness and grandeur, minimizing cleaning and maintenance, but is warm and overall a year-round haven for the family.
