Redesign and Room Finishing
design (something) again in a different way
THE THRILL OF THE NEW
REDESIGN is a use-what-you-have approach to design or the art of taking what you already own and creating something new. What does this mean for you? A space that has the right look and feel, shows it's best assets, functions at its highest level, and keeps costs down considerably. We will help you get the best out of the home you have already!
... I COULD NOT BELIEVE THE TRANSFORMATION. I was brought to tears... | Tina T. - Frederick, MD
Color and Redesign
the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way the object reflects or emits light.
This space had good bones with its high ceilings, stained millwork, breathtaking views and a gorgeous floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. It just needed some personality. With redesign, we used as much of the existing furnishings as possible. Here, we added a cabinet built by the Amish, a large bookshelf, a new rug, drapes and pillows and the perfect amount of color. Now this Craftsman style home is warm, fresh and full of personality.
BEFORE - this room lacked luster with its neutral walls and under-scaled bookshelf - it needed more. The new area rug was our inspiration (we forgot to take before pictures before the rug) and we built up the room from there.
AFTER - Another great example of redesign - the power of using existing items and creating a new look. With west facing windows, the room became dreary at certain times of the day. By using pops of color, different patterns and textures, we were able to liven up the space.

Color and Design
SAME IDEA, DIFFERENT EXECUTION - For these homeowners, we brought our interior decorating expertise to create a more substantial front entry by using appropriately scaled furnishings and eye catching accessories. We added function to the space with a large mirror because a quick check before answering the front door can be priceless. Adding plants brought a little earthiness and warmth to the space and mid-level lighting helps to create ambiance. A little tip - instead of electrically powered sconces, use battery powered candles with a remote. The flicker of a candle brings a unique warmth to what can be one of the darkest spaces in your home at night.

I had an absolute disaster to contend with, and she was prompt, worked within my budget, and made sure the job was done right. Supremely flexible and willing, she tackled my nightmare and made it a sanctuary. I can't say how happy I am to have found her... | Katie W. - Keymar, MD
