  • Bayfront Living Room , I am looking for ideas for a very open & spacious bayfront living space in NJ.  We are renovating the kitchen area and want to bring the ceramic tile out into the area between the sunken den and staircase.  We need ideas for the areas especially for the computer area hideous couches folding table with mounds of paperwork and also for window treatments.  Our preference is contemporary/mediterranean.  Our view is spectacular and we would love to incorporate colors from the outdoors inside.  , Living Rooms Design

  • Zen Den, converted small bedroom into computer/Tv room. Used square placemats in between asian style sconces to fill out the long wall. Very inexpensive! Hung 2 large bamboo prints over a chocolate brown coach and placed a sconce between the 2 prints. Colorful accent pillow adorn a chocolate brown couch.  By the way the small rectangular pillow done in browns beiges oranges and gold was my inspiration piece. Used mostly oranges and chocolate browns to try and create a very relaxing asian style room. , Living Rooms Design

  • RENOVATED DEN IN FINAL STAGES, This den originally had corner cabinets that have been removed.  The distressed wood floor is new and the room opened up to the kitchen.  I can't decide whether to purchase an cabinet (corner maybe) or place a wide screen on a stand (don;'t really like) or maybe place it over the library table or what do you think?  Would like some finishing ideas too., Living Rooms Design

  • Cozy Den, Update -Oct 2009

I have added a few more things --tracklighting, more wall art, ottomons.

Also notice the paneling has been filled and painted.

I had a photo shelf built, but I am still putting the photos in the frames.

Not really happy with the sofa pillows. I think they might need more color.



Previous Update - I have added a rug, wall art and pillows/throw. Made a few changes to the fireplace. Next week, I have someone coming to refinish the wood floors. I still need to paint. I am thinking about adding built in shelves on the back wall. The entertainment center in the background will go. I need to put something on the wall behind the sofa and I need a table and lamp or large floor lamp in the corner where the sofa and loveseat meet.  I am open to suggestions.  Thanks!!

It is time to change my den. It has been the same for about 15 years.  It previously had a country feel with a blue/rust living room suite, an oval braided rug, and country wallpaper and border. I wish I had taken a before photo so you could appreciate my need for change. I pulled down all the wallpaper and exposed wall paneling.  I took everything off the walls and took out the rug.  Then, I kinda went crazy and purchased a fire engine red leather sofa and love seat.  So, now I am stuck!! I am going for a warm and cozy area where I can sit by the fire and read a good book. Sould I paint the paneling or leave it alone? What color accent tables, pillows, and rug should I purchase? Should I change the fireplace? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

  • My Sunken Patio, I'm originally from South America so my objective for this space was to mimic the lushness of the tropical gardens of my early years. I don't know if I succeeded but I really like the way it turned out. Thanks for visiting my space.

  • Modern and Organized Office/Crafts Room!, It took me three months to design my crafts room and office. I looked for versatile storage, that was neat and organized and easily accessible. I wanted the paint to be bold and vibrant, but not annoying. I also created various areas in the room for certain crafts like; scrapbooking, gift wrapping, painting, sewing, and bow making. I love this room and spend hours everyday creating! , Home Offices Design

  • Fairy Garden, After starting to build my children's tree house village, I looked down and thought, If I want this to be a truly magical place, I would like to see something magical everywhere!  My friend Beth Nichols and I decided to create a Fairy Garden to encourage a magical experience!  Our tree houses are still being built (as you may see some construction materials in the background of my photos), but I feel that the garden is well done!

  • This photo album is experiencing technical difficulties., Here you see part of my little girls back yard playground that I have been building over the past seventeen or so months.  These Tree Creations in Geneseo, NY are a growing tree house village (at a private residence), consisting of themed tree houses connected with rope bridges for all to enjoy!

My Tree Creations were inspired by Maurice and Marie Barkley of Henrietta, NY. A visit while in college made me think "This would be nice to have for my grandchildren one day," and the thought was filed away. 

In May of 2011, a freak accident happened that took the eyesight from my left eye. A dry paint slug from an unplugged, disassembled latex paint sprayer shot out like a rubber bullet, hitting my nose. The Doctor said that if it had hit my eye, I would not be here today. This experience helped me realize the true meaning of "carpe diem" (or "seize the day") and that I may not be here for my grandchildren. When my daughters  asked for a tree house, I got to work. 

Being the princesses that all daughters is to their father, the first tree house started was one with a Castle theme. With a deck size of almost 120 square feet, it was to be grand in every way. 

During construction of this castle, we took a trip to the Long Island Children's museum. At the museum, some automotive parts were used in creating a make-believe automobile that was being enjoyed by all who touched it. Jokingly, I said to my wife, "we should put a Pinto in the tree" and then in an "ah hah" moment, my wife and I said "The Triumph."  (the car seen as my HGTV's profile picture).

In February 2012, a 1946 Triumph Renoun was dragged out from my scrap pile to breathe new life. The Triumph and the Castle were being built simultaneously with a purpose - to entertain children. I immediately remembered Maurice and Marie Barkley and their tree house village. 

I invited Mr. Barkley to see what he inspired me to build, and he informed me that he could no longer perform maintenance on his tree houses, and made a decision to donate the remains of their MYSTREES tree house village to the Tree Creations complex.  I am presently trying to restore some of these tree houses in honor of the work and inspiration that Mr. Barkley gave me.

The car was resurrected and re-purposed as a tree house and perched upon telephone poles with rigging that I designed and built.  Each of the tree houses (including the castle) are suspended by aircraft cable to allow for trees to sway in different directions (as not to tear the decks apart), to let the trees grow (without drilling into the trees), and to allow for adjustment (in case the rate of tree growth differs from tree to tree).  Most tree houses are between 10 and 12 feet in the air, with the lowest being the car (at 8 feet), and the highest being our church themed tree house deck at 20 feet.  The tallest point in the tree houses is the Church steeple where the tip is just over 32 feet off the ground!

Our village presently consists of a 1946 Triumph 1800 Saloon automobile, a veranda, a village square (roughly 250 square feet, which features a retractable set of stairs, a dumbwaiter, an elevator, and built in seating), a tea room, a wizard's den, the Margrose castle (on roughly a 120 square foot deck with towers over 15 feet tall), and a church (complete with stain glass windows and bells in the bell tower). 

Present items under construction to add to our other seven tree houses  include a "House of illumination", Galilean themed observatory, and a music themed tree house that includes a hand built / home-made pipe organ and other instruments for children to play!

Being a fourth generation "Townie" of Geneseo, NY, the tree house village will be around for generations to come as positive memories to all who help me build and play in it. 

Since the tree house complex is at a private residence, we would request that any visits are by appointment please. All are invited to come and play!  These are difficult economic times and I do not want to exclude anyone, so I am trying to keep this at no charge to enjoy!

Keep in mind, "we are on this earth but once, so any happiness we can bring or any joy we can give, do it now - without haste, for we shall not pass this way again" -unknown. 

Now let's have some fun! , Other Spaces Design

We enjoy the small colorful tree and fireplace during this time of year. Merry Christmas, everyone!, Living Rooms Design
