  • Baby Boy, Passing on things from one generation to the next need not be limited to the Chritening gown alone.  Using nursery items that bring with them a history of happy memories is a great way to create a baby space with special meaning and style., Nurseries Design

  • The Haunting of Storybook Hollow (Our yard haunt), "Every Halloween, the villains of Storybook Hollow rise from the grave to haunt their fabled foes"  This is our Halloween yard display, our family works together on it every year.  We are mad about Halloween!  We started with the haunted story-land last year wanting to create something gore-free and better suited for the younger kids who visit our yard. Everything is made from scratch (exept for the ghost by the front door, he's from Halloween USA) We all have lots of fun putting this display together!!, Holidays Design

  • Reed's Nursery Rhyme Nursery, This mural includes children's songs, fables, nursery rhymes, and tons of tiny critters and animals to keep a baby entertained.  I created this nursery for my first born son Reed.  I was 8 months pregnant when I began painting it.  This was my favorite project because it was the first time I got to create a project for my own child.   , Nurseries Design

  • Storybook Cottage Nursery (with updates), Our goal was to create a whimsical space for our little pumpkin to dream in that was warm and cozy, while bright and cheerful.  With a tiny budget (about $350 including the crib), a multitude of leftover paint, years worth of fabric remnants, a few heirloom pieces, and all the ingenuity we could muster, we created this room for her., Nurseries Design

  • Once-upon-a-Time Children's Play Space, If you have a prince or princess searching for their own fairy-tale... then this play-space is exactly what they are looking for!

The storybook cottage has a thatched roof, Dutch door, and stands 7' tall with Gothic beams, fire-place including a flicker-flame light and Bunny Hutch. Everything you could imagine in a fairytale cottage is here: flower fairies, theme dressed stuffed animals, a mouse house that has mushroom steps up to a balcony entrance and a window that looks out the real window of the room onto the 'deep-dark-woods'! , Other Spaces Design

  • Guess Who's Coming to Dinner - Kitchen Storybook, The kitchen is approximately 90 sq ft. Originally built in 1965 and finally gutted in March 2011. It has a city feel with soft modern lines. The cabinetry includes pull-out drawers with slow close function. No more need to fumble and reach far back into the cabinet looking for pots or lids. Removed 1 pantry closets to make a new entrance way into the kitchen from the hallway. The flow of traffic is much better this way and it opens the small kitchen tremendously. I chose a contrasting color palette to give some dimension. 

The tiles on the floor and walls are approximately 17 inch x 27 inch tiles. Less grout seams means less cleaning and the look of the tile being one large piece. 1/16 inch spacing between tile is key but you have to have tile that can accommodate this. Electrical plugs were intentionally moved closer to the countertop so they are not so obvious and any coffee machine chords would be hidden out of sight since the plug is lower. The peninsula was transformed from a 2 tiered peninsula into a single tier peninsula. This allows for guests and cook to feel like they are experiencing the kitchen together and adds to the open space feeling. Really just wanted my yahoo crazy friends to be able to reach over and help me prep food as I slave away for them..lol. 

Lastly, MR16 low voltage lighting was strategically placed to illuminate the kitchen. All on dimmers with the peninsula lights on separate dimmers. Key is to have these lights positioned on top of your head so that you do not get any shadowing while working in the kitchen. To save some money, I purchased all finished material and only used my contractor for demo/framing, electrical, plumbing and install. In a nutshell, that is my new kitchen and I love it. Now what to do with the 1965 bathroom??...hmm , Kitchens Design
