Our Home {Master Bathroom}

My this space so much. The chevron floors still make me happy to this day, the bow window, all of the mill is such a beautiful and calming space.

For the vanities I had custom bun feet made and our finishers constructed them to resemble pieces of furniture. 

For my make-up desk area I incorporated cabinets to store extra towels and items that I we use all of the time. This was my first time having a make-up desk and I do not think I could do back to not having one.

I had to put up a fight for this shower, I knew I wanted to use solid slabs when I laid eyes on these pieces, it just took some convincing.

Our Home {Bedrooms}

Here are some peeks at the bedrooms on the upper level of our home. The basement has two additional we use as an additional office and the other a few nephews have claimed as their own.

{Master Bedroom}

I do love this room, we are flooded with light from the massive windows we have on both sides and the view is of the towering aspens in the back...something that I find so incredible relaxing to fall asleep and wake up to.

This hall leads to the 'his' & 'hers' closets and my work space.

My desk area, that never looks this tidy, is where I come up with pretty much every aspect of every home we build.

 In a house with all boys I had to do something fun in my pink it was! I incorporated frames that remind me of special times in our lives, from our wedding, to family photos, to a cross stitch my god mother gave me when I was baptized some 30+ years ago.

 {Guest Room}

I love the ceiling and daybed that is in this room.

{W's Room}

Little man picked out this wallpaper himself & I'll admit it is pretty blinding to stair up at from the bed...but it is so much fun!

 We had this little corner in his room between his closet and the bathroom, so we added in a small desk area with fixed shelves. 

{M's Room}

M was too small when we built this home to really have any say, so I decided to have a little fun with it. It all started with the mural I painted on his wall, I found an old paint by number off e-bay from the 70's & decided to mimic it on his wall. Something that I thought would take me a weekend ended up taking 80+ and learn I guess. 

Since his room didn't have a designated space for a window seat we added this built-in desk during the finishing stage, we wanted every room to have a 'feature'.

Our Home {Mud Room & Pantry}

I am going to start sharing a few images from our home...we have been here for almost 3 years so figure it is about time.

{Mud Room}

I wanted a fun space to see multiple times a day, so for our mud room I went with a fun wallpaper, the classic Hicks pendants, and paneling to protect the walls from when the boys (and me) fling our shoes off when we walk in. The hallway pic below is what separates this room from the pantry...and one of my favorite spots in our home.


Yeah, I love my pantry too. The pull out baskets are now a staple in every pantry that we do, perfect for storage of onions, crafts for the little, and easy access to snacks for them as well. Since I have an addiction to cookbooks I built-in an area above the microwave for my collection. 

Microwave in the pantry?! 

Yep, I personally hate designing it into a kitchen and it isn't something we use that often. This space is right next to the kitchen so it works, and every client that has seen it since has incorporated it into their home as well.

Check back for more images from our home soon. Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhurst Kitchen}

Here are some of the final images from our latest home in Hillhurst, love the size of this space & how many details I was able to incorporate into it all. 
For the cabinetry I went with stained alder on the base and a beautiful creamy lacquered color above. The island features a combination of the two as well as the hood fan surround.

Some details include the bridge faucet, leathered marble counters, solid slab backsplash, and custom corbels on each side of the range.

The butlers pantry leading from the kitchen to the dining room has the same cabinetry and design with the crazy beautiful slab splash and counters.

That is a quick look at this home. We have started construction on our next project in Elbow Park and we are under way with the design for another home in that same community that we are hoping to start in the summer.  Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhurst - 16th Ensuite}

I love this bath, the pallet, the materials, all of the herringbone...

For this His & Hers vanities I designed a furniture style with toe kick detailing and angled corners for something different. And as I always say, it is in the details, including the shaker panel on the side of the vanity rather than a plane gable.

For the floors I used an oversize marble tile in a herringbone pattern that is mimicked in the large shower.

The large steam shower has marble, floor to ceiling, with a mini mosaic on the floor, larger brick pattern that meets up with a pencil mold then a herringbone pattern to the ceiling. With two shower heads and a large seating bench this is one shower I know I would love! The built-in linen cabinet has similar elements as the vanities including the toe kick detail and shaker style cabinet doors.

That is all for now, I'm off for some sun & fun with my boys!!! Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhurst 16th}

A few more goodies to share with you...


Dual sinks with open shelves below for either baskets or fun towels, one of my favorite faucets from Kohler, & wall sconces by Visual Comfort. For the framed mirror I added in some mini subway tiles I had left over from a previous job, added a bit of texture and helps the lights stand out.


Here I did a two tone thing again, creamy wainscoting throughout this space and a custom alder vanity. I really wanted to add some fab wallpaper to this space, but the home sold prior to completion and the client wanted to keep things simple...maybe on the next one.


In this beautiful space I used a Carrara mosiac floor and Carrara counters...why not, right?! Added to that combo was a full height backsplash using a beveled subway tile & oversized cornice detailing that goes to the ceiling.

I'll share some more of this home with you next week...but now I have to pack, our Maui trip is right around the corner!! Mel xo

Final Images {Hillhutst 16th}

Here are a few of the final pre-occupancy images from our latest spec home...which sold prior to completion and broke a price record for the NW community of Hillhurt...HOLLA!

{Great Room}

Rather than taking the cabinetry to the top of the 10' ceiling I decided to go with custom stained alder lowers and had our finishers finish it off with a shaker style lacquered panel above. I find a lot of times wall to wall and floor to ceiling built-ins can be over powering and somewhat daunting to style.

It's all in the details for this simple fireplace surround with custom cove molding that was mimicked above where the TV is placed. 


Keeping in line with my two toned theme throughout this home I went with a simple lacquered spindle, thick alder handrail, and custom tapered shaker style post with oversize balls...there is a ball thing going on in this home, you'll see more of that soon.

{Upper Hall}

Rather than waling up the stairs to the second level and seeing just another hall I decided to add a custom built-in. The perfect solution for this home was a built-in linen cabinet since there is no linen closet on the upper level. This allows for tons of storage as well as a nice focal point and a great area for a bit of display. I will admit though, this caused a huge argument with the hubs, when he saw this he might have flipped his lid...majorly...but sometimes I go with my gut and I'm so happy I did.

I'll share more later in the week, including the stunning master bath and kitchen. Mel xo
