  • 1922 Cape Cod Renovation, We bought a 1922 Cape Cod in the Philadelphia Metro Area.  It needed a ton of work but we got a great deal.  I started with a screw driver and a role of duct tape but through YouTube and Google, I self-taught my self everything from carpentry to plumbing. After 2 looooong years, it's not the best but my wife is pleased so I'm happy., Home Exterior Design

  • Making My Apartment My Own, When I moved in it was a typical apartment and I had typical 20 year old college furniture. White walls and Ikea everywhere. I spent a month or so designing the entire space on a 3D program, making changes, getting inspiration everywhere I could find some. Many of my furniture I found on Craigslist for a bargain and it was either painted or otherwise refurbished to fit my space. 

When I moved in the space where my book case exists was just an empty recess in the wall. Obviously I had to build a bookshelf in there.

I installed the picture frame molding myself and swapped all of the light fixtures and wall fixtures.

The light above the dining table was a CL find. I painted it black, extended the chain, omitted the shades and crystals.

The china cabinet was a $100 CL find. Built by the original owner's grandfather. I painted it white with a grey back on the interior to offset white china.

The fireplace was a $50 CL find I painted it white, added a wood medallion, and built an enclosure on the back so the fireplace would not be open to the wall making it a little more realistic.

The mirror above the couch is a beautiful mercury glass mirror from around 1900. My dad found it in an estate he bought. He painted it white and gave it to me as a gift.

  • Olivers Nautical Bedroom, The inspiration for this room came from a picture on pottery barns website about a speedboat bed. The price if the bed was ridiculous and I knew I could make one just as nice if not nicer so i set out to create the ultimate nautical boys room. The bed is hand made by me with fully functioning bow lights, lighted compass, water temp gauge, and amperes gauge. 2 walls are upholstered in stained pine 1X2 to create a yacht type feel. Grey laminate floors, all stained pine trim and hand painted door. Closet door handles are old paddles I had in the garage cleaned up and clear coated. Ceiling fan is from Hunter Fans and has actual sail cloth fan blades. The mural on the wall was designed and hand painted by me, it is the area of the St. Lawrence river in which we live. The room took several months to complete but my little man loves it and the smile it brings to his face made it all worth while...., Boys' Rooms Design

  • Relaxing Patio Retreat, Welcome to our little retreat!   Living in the Northwest we grew tired of our open air wood deck that we really only used a few weeks a year.  After years of looking at various awning options to cover the old deck we decided no amount of upgrade to the old deck would achieve our patio dreams.  It took a couple of years of sweat and tears to complete to our satisfaction but we've created an outdoor living room and kitchen space we enjoy year round.  , Patios & Decks Design

  • Cottage Beach House, We just built our dream beach house in Port Aransas, Texas.  My husband and I designed the layout while I had a blast designing the interiors with the help of my daughter.

  • Mid-century modern ranch - Before & After, We did a few minor things to the exterior of the house, which dramatically changed the appearance. When we're inside the house, we want it to feel like a sanctuary and didn't want it to feel like we are surrounded by homes on all sides. So we put up textured glass screens to allow privacy and light, without the need for window coverings. And they create a sort of garden atrium at the front of the house. Other than that, we painted the house in a way that is more consistent with the time period, and highlights the architectural details. And we gave it a bright reddish-orange door, which is also in keeping with the style (and I hear it's also very Feng Shui, not that we paid much attention to that). Replaced the landscaping with drought tolerant succulents, added some low-voltage lighting, and capped the whole thing off with a welcome tiki at the front door and we're done. , Home Exterior Design

  • SUMMER IN MICHIGAN!, My home has been in our family since 1925,and it was purchased through a Sears catalog.  This Spring I did a complete makeover of the yard.  This is the first time that I ever tried anything like this. 
. The yard is a refuge from this hectic world. 
Unfortunately --Summer in Michigan-- will soon end.  I thought it might be interesting for people who live in sections of our country who do not have the fall season would like to see how it happens here in Michigan. My yard is beginning to take on a new look. I have added some pictures of early fall.  The leaves have yet to turn into beautiful colors .  Enjoy!, Yards Design

  • Game room, We are actually still working on finishing this room but to make myself feel better about how long it is taking us to finish it I am going ahead and posting it for viewing. This is new construction  added to an old house so it was very important to me to have the new parts "feel" like they have been  in existence for as long as the rest of the house has been.  Keeping with the original house we used lots of wood ( but not so much orange colonial maple this time thankfully.....) This space is intended to be a masculine space designed for my husband and sons  (the testosterone runs pretty high around here as the  guys out number me). Anyway I'll post another space I designed as more female friendly in a minute or so.  The floor is slate, framed in wood. What I learned from this floor project was that it's HARD to  convince a contractor that you know what you want and how you want it done if you are a woman.  Remodeling headache number 7,657,895.5 . Sometimes doing it yourself can be easier but we were intimidated to try to install this floor. In the end it wasn't as complicated as we imagined and we really could have/ should have done it ourselves.   
The ceiling is pressed paper that was painted and stained. It was somewhat tedious and  quite messy  but I like the end result.  My husband gets some kind of award for most trim used in a room. There are hundreds and hundreds of feet of trim  on the ceiling alone...never mind the walls.  Our friend Lupe works with us  on a regular basis to get these projects of mine finished.  A true friend indeed  who is an occassional design mplementation  mediator.  What I like most about Lupe ( aside for his competent skill sets) is he never says,  "it can't be done"...   He and Craig  have done some wonderful  building from some admittedly sketchy drawings.  I am VERY  lucky  to  have such  help in  getting my ideas out of my head and into a room. , Other Spaces Design

  • Take Two: Dining room re-do, We added drapery (custom panels in off white linen with black greek key tape), black nickel drapery hardware, wallpaper (by Thibaut. Style: Antoine Trellis. Color: Silver on Charcoal), buffet and accessories. We kept our existing reclaimed wood table and upholstered chairs (Candice Olson, Style: Margo). We removed the area rug intentionally as the chairs are quite heavy and now with felt pads under each leg its very easy to move them around., Dining Rooms Design
