  • Traditional Living Room with Soothing Earth Tones and Lots of Art, This is the formal living room. I have chosen soothing, earth tones to complement the richness of the dark wood and marble tops. To break the monotony, a little bit of red was introduced as an accent color. I painted an Abstract to go over the console table. My client loved the way it turned out, with lots of movement and vibrant colors., Living Rooms Design

  • Fun Sweet Modern Girly Nursery, The paint colors: Green is Behr Corn Husk Green, and Pink is Olympic Lauren's Lullaby.  I love the Olympic brand paint because it's super low voc and has no smell!  The bedding is MiGi Blossom and I got it from, they have it a few places, but they seem to have the best prices there. The artwork:  I just painted three artists canvas' and then pulled the head of an artificial peony off(you could use any flower really) Then i poked a small hole through the canvas for the base of the flower to poke through and glued the flower head down.  I made the stems with hemp to keep with the 3d look, and the leaves are actually from the wall decals that I got at (markjamesdesign).  I drew the birdies on scrapbook paper and cut them out, that's it!!  simple, super cheap and fun!, Nurseries Design

  • I DID IT ! Masterbath - a place for dancing!, After my first tiling experience, a tiny guest bathroom floor was a success, I thought I was ready to tackle the 200 sq' masterbath.  I really didn't know what I was getting into...

I have no formal training in design or construction, but I am a creative person and love a challenge.  I could see the potential in this large bathroom and wanted to remodel it myself.  Being my first major DIY renovation project, I just took it one step at a time and spent A LOT of time on the internet looking up how to do this and how to do that!

The first step was to demolish the shower walls, ceiling and floor.  This was sort of fun, but revealed a nasty wet wall behind the showerhead caused by gaps in the caulking at the bottom of the shower. This probably had been going on for years and is the reason for the constant mold problem.  

The next step was to convert two of the full walls to half walls to really open up the dark shower. Not knowing if the walls were load bearing, I didn't feel confident in doing that part myself.  A construction crew was able to cut down the existing studs and raise the ceiling in just a few hours.  Then, with the help of my husband, we installed the plumbing, insulation and cement board on the walls and ceiling of the shower.

Then I was on my own again...for months. 

After much research, I decided to use kerdi membrane for waterproofing the shower.  This part was fairly expensive and time consuming.  The most challenging part, however, was creating the mortar bed for the shower floor. This is a large shower, 4'x8', and probably not the best one for a first timer.  It was a very stressful few hours but worked out well.

Then it was on to tiling.  This was my first time tiling a vertical surface.  And to make matters more difficult, the walls were out of square and I had chosen to use a rectified tile with very narrow, 1/16", grout lines.  So every tile had to be laid just perfectly with its neighboring tiles or it would really show up and look unprofessional.  Let me just summarize by saying, tiling the shower walls took several months, off and on.
Laying the 20 x 20 bathroom floor tile, on the diagonal, was a breeze after having completed the shower.  I then tiled partially up the walls in the entire bathroom and used travertine mosaic pieces and "stone" listellos to cap off the top row of tiles.  I painted the white laminate cabinets a faux wood grain and painted the existing bright gold light fixtures to a bronze color.  My final stage was to remove the wallpaper and paint the walls.

It was more than six months from the start date, but eventually I was able to emerge from the bathroom with a smile on my face and a great feeling of accomplishment!  And, now I have a great place for zumba!

I completed the project just over my $10,000 budget, with the major expenses being the shower glass installation, the granite, the kerdi membrane and the tile supplies.

  • A Walk In The Woods - Gatlinburg Cabin, The Goal was to NOT make this great little house look like all the other nightly rentals in the Smoky Mountain area with our total remodel job.  I don't know about you, but I'm sick of moose head & deer antler decor, (Not to mention the brutality).  If I ever decorate with real dead animal carcasses somebody get me some help. :)  We call this look "Pottery Barn" in the Mountains.  It's Warm colors make a bold statement, yet the fabrics are very comfy and most of all romantic.  Our county issues a large number of marriage license, second only to Vegas.  So, we thought that Romance never goes out of style, no matter your age. 

This is the definition of an "Eat-in" kitchen.  The only dining area in the house is at the over-sized island.  But, it sure does help to create that "together feeling".  Which is the goal on a mountain vacation, right?  I hope you enjoy viewing our little Mountain Chalet in Gatlinburg, TN, Kitchens Design

  • Dining room in the works, Here are some pics of my dining room thus far. I have bought drapes. Hated them returned and still searching for the right ones. Im still looking for the right wall sconces. I have bought 6 table runners and hated them all. Im up for any suggestions for window treatments. Friends are telling me to just leave the wood blinds. I think it needs some softness with all that hardwood. Thanks for looking and any suggestions will be appreciated., Dining Rooms Design
