Final Images {Hillhurst Kitchen}

Here are some of the final images from our latest home in Hillhurst, love the size of this space & how many details I was able to incorporate into it all. 
For the cabinetry I went with stained alder on the base and a beautiful creamy lacquered color above. The island features a combination of the two as well as the hood fan surround.

Some details include the bridge faucet, leathered marble counters, solid slab backsplash, and custom corbels on each side of the range.

The butlers pantry leading from the kitchen to the dining room has the same cabinetry and design with the crazy beautiful slab splash and counters.

That is a quick look at this home. We have started construction on our next project in Elbow Park and we are under way with the design for another home in that same community that we are hoping to start in the summer.  Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhurst - 16th Ensuite}

I love this bath, the pallet, the materials, all of the herringbone...

For this His & Hers vanities I designed a furniture style with toe kick detailing and angled corners for something different. And as I always say, it is in the details, including the shaker panel on the side of the vanity rather than a plane gable.

For the floors I used an oversize marble tile in a herringbone pattern that is mimicked in the large shower.

The large steam shower has marble, floor to ceiling, with a mini mosaic on the floor, larger brick pattern that meets up with a pencil mold then a herringbone pattern to the ceiling. With two shower heads and a large seating bench this is one shower I know I would love! The built-in linen cabinet has similar elements as the vanities including the toe kick detail and shaker style cabinet doors.

That is all for now, I'm off for some sun & fun with my boys!!! Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhurst 16th}

A few more goodies to share with you...


Dual sinks with open shelves below for either baskets or fun towels, one of my favorite faucets from Kohler, & wall sconces by Visual Comfort. For the framed mirror I added in some mini subway tiles I had left over from a previous job, added a bit of texture and helps the lights stand out.


Here I did a two tone thing again, creamy wainscoting throughout this space and a custom alder vanity. I really wanted to add some fab wallpaper to this space, but the home sold prior to completion and the client wanted to keep things simple...maybe on the next one.


In this beautiful space I used a Carrara mosiac floor and Carrara counters...why not, right?! Added to that combo was a full height backsplash using a beveled subway tile & oversized cornice detailing that goes to the ceiling.

I'll share some more of this home with you next week...but now I have to pack, our Maui trip is right around the corner!! Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhutst 16th}

Here are a few of the final pre-occupancy images from our latest spec home...which sold prior to completion and broke a price record for the NW community of Hillhurt...HOLLA!

{Great Room}

Rather than taking the cabinetry to the top of the 10' ceiling I decided to go with custom stained alder lowers and had our finishers finish it off with a shaker style lacquered panel above. I find a lot of times wall to wall and floor to ceiling built-ins can be over powering and somewhat daunting to style.

It's all in the details for this simple fireplace surround with custom cove molding that was mimicked above where the TV is placed. 


Keeping in line with my two toned theme throughout this home I went with a simple lacquered spindle, thick alder handrail, and custom tapered shaker style post with oversize balls...there is a ball thing going on in this home, you'll see more of that soon.

{Upper Hall}

Rather than waling up the stairs to the second level and seeing just another hall I decided to add a custom built-in. The perfect solution for this home was a built-in linen cabinet since there is no linen closet on the upper level. This allows for tons of storage as well as a nice focal point and a great area for a bit of display. I will admit though, this caused a huge argument with the hubs, when he saw this he might have flipped his lid...majorly...but sometimes I go with my gut and I'm so happy I did.

I'll share more later in the week, including the stunning master bath and kitchen. Mel xo
