Job Site Visits


Job site visits today! 
This remodel project involves turning a dated 90's contemporary property into a more traditional home.  The fireplace is coming along. 



Traditional corbels and paneling and an appropriate scale and weight for this big space helps transform the look.




Right after demo.  All mouldings and tile were removed as well as stepped sheetrock detail at the ceiling.



Fireplace Before - smallish, plain, and unimportant

On to the bathroom! 



Tile work looks great.  A warm golden color scheme was desired by my client, achieved with the Angelica travertine for flooring and bathroom tile.  Fitting a traditional tile pattern and layout around the existing modern window helps marry the styles and looks purposeful.


 

Shower tile work




Niche at the tub area. Waiting for the Angelica limestone ledge.

On to another job site. 

New  paint on the dark wood paneling and new wood flooring. 



Before



After - Yea!!! 

I've been soooo busy this summer, not quite on top of my blogging. Busy is good though!  I've got a fun apartment decorating project to post next.  I'll be back next week!

Wow Carla you have a lot of exciting things going on!! Love it all......that mantle is gorgeous what color will you paint/stain it? Love the painted wall at the end too....what a difference and gorgeous bath!

I love the fact that your painted that wood. I will bet every guy was opposed and every woman said "Paint and paint it quick". I will be tackling my entire living room in September which is covered in dark teak tongue and groove paneling. It is a sin to paint it but from a cost standpoint it is my only option. Your work is stunning as usual.

Fabulous job. What terrific transformations like tina, I especially love the repainted kitchen wall. Looking forward to seeing the apartment project.

Carla, painting the paneling white made such a huge difference. Love what you're doing with the fire place. Hope you have a lovely weekend and get some much needed rain in Texas.

Love the new beautiful fireplace mantel. All the additions make a huge difference, it looked more like a showpiece now! And I also love the painted wall panels. White always look so fresh!
