Sneak Peeks


 With all of the excitement of the Marin Designer Showcase, one might think that is all that has been going on around here! Not so, not so. I have been quite busy with client projects, some of which will be published soon! 

I have been working with a wonderful family lately on their home, and it is still ongoing. We have finished the Master Bedroom and Family Room. I wanted to share just a peek.  We started with a rug that the young couple already had, and built from there with natural linen covered Bergere, a Chinese garden stool, aqua blue toile fabric for the curtains, Windsor Smith fabric on the pillow, and a charcoal painted dresser. I am on pins and needles to see the photos that were taken for Sacramento Magazine for their April issue. The home will also be on the Curtis Park Home Tour this April!


Another project that has just been finished in a kitchen for another young couple in Curtis Park. they have a wonderful California Bungalow home and it was such a pleasure to work with such  talented pair. The wife is quite and artist and has her wonderful work throughout the house. For this remodel, I was able to take an unused closet from an adjacent room and add the square footage to the small kitchen. We also had existing windows that were kept in place for budget's sake. White Shaker style cabinets, beautiful quartz counters, white subway tile and open shelving give things a fresh new start. The new Bertozzi Range is perhaps my favorite new feature.


We also redid the Laundry Room. Originally, the whole room was covered with beadboard. But it had been patched so many times we replaced it for an original look. I also had bead board installed on the ceiling. More open shelving and butcher block counters help keep things casually fresh. I love the original stained glass window that lets light into the adjacent Dining Room! I just snapped a few shots when I was there the other day. It will be nice to get professional photos taken soon!

So, just a little peek! I will be showing you more projects soon....I have been working on an Eichler house....so cool! And I can hardly wait to share the Sacramento Magazine article as soon as it comes out.

I love this kitchen...it has everything I love in a kitchen. It's white, has open shelving, subway tile and a gorgeous range. I need to research that Bertozzi range...I know nothing about those. The laundry room is gorgeous too! My new (old) house has the laundry in the basement, ugh....I hope I can find a closet to convert to a laundry room. This one is perfect. I love the simplicity of the brackets...are they custom?

Merlin said...

WOW! Everything looks so fresh and ORGANIZED!! franki

Thanks everyone!
Annie, the brackets were custom, but IKEA has similar brackets. They are just not quite as substantial as I wanted them to be. But they are probably what I would use when we get around to redoing our basement laundry room.
