Founders Way in Downingtown, PA – The existing traditional (and outdated) kitchen didn’t suit the homeowner’s modern style. The range took up most of the island top and the stools around the island stuck out into the path from the kitchen to the family room.
The existing kitchen cabinetry, plumbing and appliances were removed to accommodate the new look. The gas range took the refrigerator’s old spot, leaving the island free for food prep. The stainless steel vent hood and stacked stone back-splash create a dramatic focal point in the new location. The uniquely shaped island ends in a concave arc and bar seating – getting the stools out of the way of foot traffic. The dark cabinetry, gray Caesar Stone counter-tops and a variety of glass mosaic tile give the kitchen an edgy look.
Wynnewood, PA – A second floor gable addition boosts the home’s curb appeal and transformed an unfinished attic into livable space. A new gabled entry addition welcomes friends and other guests.

Downstairs, the two existing bedrooms were reconfigured and re-purposed to expand the master suite and create a mudroom/laundry area and home office.
Chestnut Hill, PA – Our client bought a renovated home but wanted to freshen up the kitchen to make it her own. Our interior designer swooped in to help personalize the space. Stainless steel pendant lights above the island create a more modern vibe. Natural bamboo shades replaced patterned drapes above a storage bench and correspond to woven dining room chairs. Soft yellows and bright orange warm up the modern color palette so the room feels crisp and fresh, not heavy handed one way or another.
Lindsay Drive in Wayne, PA – Dark wood paneling and a dropped tile ceiling characterize the original basement. The homeowners envisioned a space that would be a welcoming hangout for quiet evenings or weekends with a house full of guests.
After – The existing dark paneled basement was gutted, refinished and reconfigured with a more open floor plan. The space had to be multifunctional, so it was divided up into four distinct zones: a bar, wine room, office, and exercise area. Utility and storage closets are hidden behind closed doors. A cultured stone accent wall off sets a custom bar by Conestoga Valley Custom Kitchens. The existing columns became a design feature in the new bar. Hardwood floors and warm neutrals wall paint complete this inviting family hangout.
South Wayne, PA – The powder room in a historic home was remodeled as part of a larger whole house renovation. Thoughtful reconfiguration of interior spaces and circulation gave the powder room a larger footprint suitable for a formal hall bath. The existing 1st-floor powder room was cramped and poorly situated. The new generously spaced powder room comfortably accommodates guests and complements the formal spaces at the front of the original house that is serves.
