Dining Room

Even though we didn't make a single piece in this dining room, we did however pick up odds and ends to create a sense of belonging between the furniture. Ranging from designer splurges and Target clearances we realized how much fun it was to create something that fit our budget and entertaining needs. We were exposed to a new kind of "hand made", a "hand selected".

Powder Room

So many times the smallest spaces are overlooked so this powder room was made to make visitors feel special. The long custom mirror balances out the floor-to-ceiling curtains to create the dramatic entrance, at the same time the tone of the room is both quiet and private. The dresser-like vanity was made to fit this small space, with two drawers and an exposed shelf. Lined with towels, more often then not I feel like I fell into a hotel bathroom.

Master: Black and White

This master is simple and to the point. The bed was one of the first things we have ever made and speaks volumes just as it is. White and shades of beige work together against the dark wood tones making it warm enough to come to but crisp enough to feel fresh in.

The concept of stacked boxes created this dresser and side table set. We wanted the furniture to compliment each other, stand strong and ready to face its life together. For rich and for poor, in sickness and in health, our lives are lived in this room.

Cinderella Room

Inspired by the classic "Cinderella" tale, we used the blue and white of her dress to make this room suitable for our little princess. The bed is from Ikea and the bedding as well as the end tables are from Target. Our foot-print in this room are the beads on the wall. Each piece was painted and glued to create the illusion of a necklace. The canvas art displays our daughters name, mimicking the design from the bedding. Of course she has her little nitch too, with a kitchen, table, mirror and dress up box she is able to play in the very room a princess would.

Natural Nursery

To create this room we used ordinary square ottomans and transformed them into bedroom furniture for our son. The "Natural" theme was inspired by the "Going Green" craze these days and can be used as end and coffee tables. Being multi functional was very important so the ottomans can easily be pulled out for extra seating in the Family Room next door. Small details in the room, like a bear in the corner, a wooden train, a nursery book and clothes hanging exposed invites you to welcome the warmth of a baby.
