Contemporary Family Room

Over the spring and summer of 2009, I had the pleasure of working with a local family to assist them in finishing their lower level.  Although they had lived in their beautiful home for several years, the basement was yet to be completed.  They have modern design tastes, and wanted their fireplace to reflect that aesthetic – clean, simple, no clutter. 

You can see the rest of the photos by viewing my profile at Ava Living.  Leave a comment to let me know what you think!

Custom Tile Work

Custom tile can be tricky – there are so many parts and pieces to figure out.  From base trim, in corners, out corners, chair rails, end caps, bullnose and field tile to murals, inserts and borders, it can be a challenge to measure correctly!  A good tile installer is a must, and ordering correctly is essential.  Custom tile is not inexpensive, but it does add a one-of-a-kind detail to your home.  No other home will have exactly what you do.  Isn’t that nice to know?  Take a peek at some recent tile design I completed:

Victorian Elegance

I have been working on a new construction project for nearly a year.  It’s not often that I have the opportunity to work on a new home in the Victorian style!  My clients have been fantastic to work with, and I have enjoyed the entire process.  The home is being built by Landsted, LLC, in Hudson, WI.  What a joy to see it come together!  Take a sneak peek at some of the pics I just snapped – the home is scheduled to be completed at the end of the month, and I will take some finished shots to share with you all.  The home is equipped with the latest in green technologies, allowing the lucky homeowners to drastically cut their heating and cooling bills, save water and reduce their overall energy consumption.  Even the granite used in the home has been harvested within 500 miles of the home.  I’ll have more information on the details of the home when I post photos of the completed project.  Let me know what you think so far!
