The goal for a well designed entrance is to set the tone for what lies ahead.  Starting with the front door and carrying through to inside that entrance. It doesn’t matter if you have a veranda, portico or a single step you can add your own touches of interest.

Don’t forget these elements- color and finish of the door, the hardware (door knocker or unique door bell, finish of hinges and door latches and knobs, lighting, plants, plants in an interesting container- when planning your “this is my house” statement! Once inside, the lighting, flooring, and pieces reflect the look of the rest of your “nest”.

In today’s fast paced life, where the everyday stress and strain can weigh you down, we find that there’s one place that can wash it all away and rejuvenate your spirit. We like to call this oasis “the perfect bathroom.”

This design project involved a sophisticated, well-traveled southern woman and her outdated master bath.
When we asked our client what she envisioned for her master bathroom, she responded with two words, “creamy and dreamy.” With that being our only direction, we decided to illustrate creamy and dreamy by revisiting a classic design that would exceed her expectations and give a new definition to these two words.

Sometimes small spaces can be discouraging, but luckily, Design is magic! Here are a few tips to trick your eye by creating an impression of expansiveness.

-Instead of hanging curtains at the top of the window molding, go all the way up to a few inches below the ceiling. This will help make the room feel taller.
