"It's Been Too Long"

Hi! I'm Cheryl, remember me?

I know, it's been a crazy long time since I blogged but I'm going to recommit and do better. The past year has been absolutely insane.  You'd think with a pandemic and a lockdown that I would've had plenty of time to blog. You'd be wrong.  Needless to say with the world at home, nearly everyone was looking to update and improve their dwellings.  As a result, we've been swamped.  Seriously, like NON-STOP since this time last year.  So much has happened since my last post that it's difficult to know where to start.  How about we do this... Let's start with a little look back at some of my favorite projects in 2020.  We completed and photographed quite a few that I haven't shared here, so let's go in chronological order, shall we?

I'll start with a project that continues to be ongoing.  We're actually working on completing Phase III right now.  The project originally began in 2019 as a bath renovation project.  

The clients came to us looking to update their principal suite.  The bath in particular was long overdue.  They were looking for something clean and fresh and wanted help laying out a plan for the renovation.  Here's where the space began.  

The bath and adjoining closet were fine in terms of layout, but they were feeling a bit drab as you can see.  We created a design plan that was fresh and classic.  With cool hits of fresh green (SW Sea Salt) and gray and a mix of luxurious metals, this principal bath got a MAJOR upgrade. 

This shower is the stuff that dreams are made of. 

The custom cabinetry allowed us to get exactly what we wanted in storage and functionality and we took advantage of the vertical space with towers flanking the vanity. 

The tile wall in the tub niche is a showstopper and worth the investment.  We splurged here while saving on the floor with large format porcelain tile with a marble mosaic design installed on the diagonal for maximum impact and visual interest. 

We first needed to address the worn carpet in the closet, so we continued the wood flooring from the bedroom here and draped the room in this beautiful wallpaper from York Wallcoverings.  

A beautiful new mirror and custom bench in a durable (yet stylish) Revolution Performance Fabric print finish the space off beautifully.  

The clear doors on the existing cabinet were causing a lot of visual clutter, so we changed them to antiqued mirror, upgraded the knobs, and voila!

The clients also wanted to "freshen" up the bedroom space and we were happy to oblige.  

We took our design inspiration for this space from the client's existing area rugs.  The beige and blue would be a great complement to the soft green in the adjoining bath so we went with it.  

The plan was to update the paint, keep the existing bed, drapery, and rugs, and level up the other elements.  It's amazing what decorative elements and furniture can do to a space. 

I'm obsessed with this bedroom.  It's cozy and fresh and just makes you want to linger a bit.  
We kept things fairly neutral here and played up the pattern.  If you ask me, it's the perfect mix.

So, what do you think?  It's been a while since I've heard from you guys.  Let me know if you're still here and haven't given up on me.  : ) 

I promise I'll be back in June with another 2020 project reveal.
