Latest Remodel

This project came about because of our Willows Model. The couple loved all of the features to the model home and wanted to reproduce that same atmosphere into their own home. So we did just that! It turned out to be amazing project! So happy to have worked on this project! Check out some of the before and afters...

Easy Breezy Beautiful!

Ballard Design is one of my go to sources for inspiration and products. Hats off to them as they stay current and bring the design world to our front door. The latest flash - a Ballard Design Concept Home - head to toe Ballard- compliments of Suzanne Kasler, voted one of the top 100 designers by House Beautiful.

Many of us have chatted about the trend to create rooms with neutral backgrounds infused with splashes of color and texture. Creating a soothing effect: beachy, vintage or modern- in stark contrast to our someimes boldy painted walls. Thoughts?



One of the best parts of my job - working with fabulous families to bring a home dream from drafting board to beautiful living space. What a joy - here's a peek below!

My husband and I work together on this project - he the builder -drafting architect and me the designer. I jump in to advise on room flow, space planning and the finishes. Once moved in, the fun really begins, as I work to complete the spaces with all the furnishings.

This family wanted to infuse urban elegance from their pre-kids days living in downtown Chicago, yet honor today with plenty of function for kids, friends and family. We agreed on a soft contemporary concept using fabulous finds from local retail haunts, blended with custom bench made pieces and family antiques. For more - check out http://www.heartwoodhomes.com/
