{noe valley remodel} | update

I am super excited to finally share with you some progress photos of the Noe Valley Mid-Century home that has consumed the majority of my design time these days! First off, my client is pregnant and decisive. Don't believe me? I was hired on June 16th to pick out the entire finish package for this remodel: tile, counters, cabinets, paint, flooring, plumbing fixtures, lighting, hardware and bathroom accessories for the 3/2 remodel. Everything is purchased and has arrived and is waiting to be installed. We even managed to get window treatments in by the time she moves in. Move-in Date: September 10th, three weeks from today...and she is supposed to have her baby girl two weeks later. ;) I guess you have to be decisive when a baby is on the way! 

I had to share photos of the Waterworks and AnnSacks boxes, two of my favorite places to shop for decorative and suprisingly affordable tile. I can't wait to show you what is in them! Island pendants, pennyround tile, glass tile, and statuary marble tile. Additional finishes include: a custom red lacquer desk, custom navy slatted island with calcutta oro counter, white shaker perimeter cabinets with soapstone counters, splashes of walnut, rockymountain hardware inspired pulls, and a groutless fireplace tile.

Needless to say, it has been an absolutely amazing and fun project. The team: architect Mason Miller, owner of Mason Miller Architecture (the one responsible for the amazing transformation of the home) and contractor John Fannon, owner of Green Home Construction, have been a delight to work with on this project. I would highly suggest using them if you are a home owner interested in a mid-century modern or modern remodel, and are on a tight deadline. Very professional and even keyed guys, exactly what you want for a tight schedule.

Next steps: Installing cabinets, setting counters, building the custom island, tiling, and installing carpet and baseboards. Exciting!!

Stay tuned for more progress photos. Can't wait! 

 

{Hotel Inspirations}: Ace

Working for a high profile hospitality firm was great exposure to unique and mouth dropping design, but it also helped me understand the importance of a brand and why hotel owners need it to survive. The newest hotel inspiring me is Ace Hotels. I love everything about this hotel's brand. Rustic, modern, kid-like yet refined in an artistic way. Thanks again to my former friends and colleagues Johnson/Soler, who introduced me to Ace Hotel, and posts here on how to bring Ace style into your home.

{I Heart DIY}: Lighting

Well, yet another day of perusing the web and once again a superb find. Thanks to my friends and former colleagues Steve Johnson, Sarah Soler, and Rebecca Otto, who formed Johnson/Soler, an Interior Design firm in Chicago, that creates some pretty great and unique spaces. So many talented friends I have. I'm loving the inspiration! Check out their blog. It's a great read and and excellent resource for new, budget friendly and DIY design ideas.

One DIY project that has my head spinning, this Chandelier by the talented lighting designer, Lindsey Adelman . So earthy, rustic...yet modern. So my style.

Thanks to THE BRICK HOUSE for sharing this wonderful post. The Brick House is a DIYer on sterroids...such an inspiration. I'll be checking out his blog daily. I hope to have photos up soon of my newest DIY project creating Lindsey's chandelier
