Under Construction: History Meets High-Tech Office in Tampa

During the past few weeks our high-tech, commercial office interior design project in Tampa, FL has entered the construction phase and the framing for the new walls is up! We blogged about its geographically-driven concept here and we’re so excited to see it taking shape. We’re sharing some photos of our recent trip to site where we reviewed the progress with the project contractor and architect and answered any questions that have come up. Stay tuned for more updates on this project as it evolves and becomes a spectacular workspace. Read more

On Site + In the Studio: St.Armand’s Key Kitchen Remodel

Our clients for this project settled down in this canalfront home on St. Armand’s Key three years ago and have been dreaming about customizing their kitchen to reflect their passion for cooking. Aside from upgrading to their preferred choice of appliances, the new kitchen design will be a beautiful neutral palette with contrasting finishes on space-maximizing custom cabinetry and a wood soffit feature with accent lighting above to take advantage of the extended height of the space.

The Dining Library

Do you have a formal dining room? (formal as in a separate room with at least 3 walls, not as in stylistically formal)

Do you use it often enough for its intended purpose to justify dedicating the square footage it claims in your home? Ever wish you could use the space more effectively, but don’t want to sacrifice your dining furniture and the flexibility to occasionally host larger gatherings?  Read more

Work in Progress: New York Lake House

In order to honor the craftsman style of this existing home while interpreting our design-savvy client’s contemporary-neutral aesthetic, our challenge has been clear: to create a new style which does not yet exist.

This lake house redesign is one of the big projects we are working on currently. The existing home is primarily craftsman style in its architecture and features an abundance of orange-toned Douglas Fir interior trimwork. The solid wood itself is inherently beautiful in its own right, however the strong orange tones are in contrast to our client’s desired style- clean and contemporary with a soft, neutral “greige” palette.

Tropical Master Bath Renovation, Casey Key

We recently completed this master bath renovation for a client’s waterfront home on Casey Key. Their existing bath design was feeling bland and its shotgun floor plan wasn’t working for these homeowners. So we reconfigured the layout, removing the existing corner tub in favor of a large, luxurious shower and increased closet space.  Since the footprint is narrow, we replaced some solid walls with translucent glass to afford privacy while allowing a sense of openness.
