Cozy, Open Retreat with Treasures

The goal for this remodel was to transform a traditional builder home into a tranquil retreat, recalling the clients’ travels to remote locations around the world. Warmth and texture were introduced with custom walnut cabinetry and floors in the living room, specialty stone and tile in the bath (subtly reflecting colors of the sand and ocean), and sleek yet comfortable quality furnishing throughout. The tone is clean yet warm, and reminiscent of their favorite seaside getaways.

After completing these projects the power of design is so clear to me now - our bathroom and bedroom are absolutely retreats from our hectic lives. Our mood completely changes when we enter those rooms, and it's all about the environment that the design has created.
