Out With The Old

When clients in our neighborhood wanted to update their 10-year-old master bath, we knew exactly what needed to happen.....everything had to go! We started fresh with Karndean commercial-grade vinyl plank flooring, new lighting including a chandelier from Lumens, free-standing vanities, marble counters, and a tub and free standing faucet from Signature [...]

Holiday Breakfast Done Right!

Guest Post by Maggie O'Toole- My stress never comes from cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. There is a certain cadence to it, family and friends pitching in, everyone working towards a unified goal.

Overdue for a Redo

A while back we took on the task of remodeling our own kitchen. It was the last major space needing to be done. We considered upgrading the cabinetry, but decided to use that money for new appliances. So we chose to have them painted instead. The key to a successful cabinetry [...]

Game Time Snacking!

With the Broncos playing Sunday night, we thought it would be the perfect time to share a post from Chef Maggie.

Turn Up The Basement

In our neighborhood, most of the new build homes were sold with unfinished basements. As families have grown, these spaces have become more desirable for extra bedrooms and hangout space. Kyndra designed the main builtin to be both pretty and functional. The stamped mesh panels look beautiful with the added function giving the A/V equipment adequate [...]
