Nag Champa: A 940 sqf. condo transformation in the heart of downtown Nashville

When I met my client, she had just moved into her new condo, and was ready for a whole new look. She said she wanted her space to "feel like Nag Champa smells". This lit me up, because Nag Champa is my favorite incense from India, and I knew exactly what she meant. It was a joy to create this space with her!

The Loft: An inviting AirBnb in the  West End district of Nashville, TN

This project has been 20 years in the making from the time of when my clients initially conceived of creating a living space above their detached 2 car garage. I had the pleasure of working on this project from the onset and seeing it to completion. It is a 1 room loft space that provides everything visitors to Nashville would need for a wonderful getaway in the quiet, historic West End neighborhood.

Home Office Makeover: A historical home in East Nashville, TN.
My client was ready to upgrade from her collegiate office furniture to a cleaner more sophisticated look. De-cluttering all unnecessary items was the first step. I designed a custom desk table and floating shelves to fully utilize all available space in an odd nook under the stairwell. The industrial metal double file cabinet was also custom made to fit the space. Adding wall sconces and a small chandelier really enhanced the overall lighting and feel of the space as well.

Amelia's Bedroom and Crafts Room Makeover 

Amelia's is 10 and has outgrown the little girl's aesthetic her bedroom had been. She loves to do art and crafts and needed a space to have as her own to play and create in. She is lovingly encouraged by her mother, whose also an artist and elementary school art teacher.

We used both her and her mother's art to create the art collage on her walls. A local artist created the original artwork that we turned into a wallpaper mural behind her bed. 

Removing the clunky door to the now converted closet allows for better flow between bedroom and craftsroom spaces.

I'm completely jealous of this room!

Guest Bathroom Makeover : West End, Nashville, TN
My clients' 3 children had all grown and left home, so they were ready to transform what had been their childrens' bathroom into a stunning guest bathroom. A wall and door had divided the vanity sink from the toilet and bath, and removing that wall totally opened up the space. Natural stone tile was used for the floor and shower stall, a framless glass enclosure really shows off the beautiful tile and modern-vintage style bath hardware. A console cabinet was used to create the vanity cabinet, complete with vessel sinks and wall mounted faucets.

The Conservatory: A cozy AirBnb apartment in the University District of Green Hills, Nashville, TN 

This 2cd floor apartment in a historic Green Hills, Nashville home was needing a total overhaul. The walls and ceilings had layers of wallpaper that needed to be removed before they could be painted and the tiny kitchen was cluttered and needing a total renovation. I enjoyed transforming the space into a cozy Air Bnb, which the homeowners are now benefiting from the income stream it generates.

Whole Home Makover: West End, Nashville, TN

My clients in the West End area of Nashville were considering selling their home, after their grown children had left. Instead they decided they loved their home so much that rather than selling, they choose to invest in giving it a much needed update. It has been my pleasure to transform their home room by room into an updated and totally inviting space.

Tween Girl's Bedroom: Franklin, TN

Divorce is not easy on kids, and sometimes a child's bedroom may feel like a campsite when the time is split between both parents and neither space feels permanent. My client's desire was to give his daughter a room she really loved and that made her feel like she was (almost) all grown up. It was fun to get the daughter's ideas for her room while working within the father's budget, and still create a fabulous space for her to grow and dream in.
