The ocean views are the focal point of this galley kitchen. The cabinetry, backsplash and countertops were purposely selected to be subtle and calming. Their neutral colors allow us to adjust our attitude toward the exterior seascape. The warm sandy colored hardwoods also line the coffered ceiling above the grand island that seats five. That leads us directly to the dining table for 10 more people. While this is a place meant for cooking, my client’s plan from the beginning […]

Oceanfront Oasis

This luxury vacation rental home is located directly on Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina. The expansive beachfront property took 2 and a half years to design and build.

Are you ready to plunge into the colorful bathroom movement? […]

The inspiration started when the homeowners added a beautiful lumber feature wall to the entryway. To continue the transformation, we designed wood ceiling beams, columns, a focal point vent hood over the range and a timbered wall to the mud room. We stained the boards in the sunroom to match.
