Before + After // Living and Dining

It’s Transformation Time!

We love a good Before + After, and this living and dining room transformation is one of our favorites.

With a primary residence full of traditional furniture and antiques, these clients wanted to get away from their roots and leave the formality behind on the East Coast. To achieve a breezy mountain aesthetic, we focused on comfort, texture, and relaxed forms. Pattern and color was incorporated enthusiastically, in the form of a handful of luxury fabrics.

FUNCTION OVER FORMAL //

A general rule of design: don’t force it! If you know that you won’t use a formal dining room, utilize that space in a way that makes you happy. With grandkids, nieces and nephews, and plenty of out-of-town guests planning trips, we decided to make the dining room, just off of the kitchen, a multi-purpose hang-out zone.

 

PROGRESS – window seat

Our only design parameter was that this room needed to function as an office. We created a window seat to store all office supplies and files, and introduced a game table to act as a desk when needed. We were able to wire-in reading sconces at the same time that we ditched the baseboard heater and installed cove heating.

The final result is a cozy hang-out and game space, that is the most used room in the house!

That’s another Before + After for the books!

Big high-five to Kristen of Bison Custom Cabinetry  for fitting an entire office (including printer!) into the window seat, and to Samantha Livingston Photography for the great shots.

 

 

Before + After // Master Bathroom Remodel

It’s BEFORE + AFTER Time!

We always love making our clients happy in their homes, but there is something extra gratifying about transforming a space that they hate into one that they really love! We cannot say enough kind words about this couple; they have been an absolute dream to work with. Relocating from Indiana to Jackson Hole, they fell in love with this home high on a butte overlooking the valley. Lofty ceiling lines, beautiful wood floors, and amazing light sold them on the house…however, it was clear that a master bathroom remodel was needed.

THE PLAN: Our goals for this remodel were:

(1) Create a beautiful and interesting shower

(2) Remove the tub, which was never used

(3) Keep the bathroom window intact, as it had just been installed.

 

DEMO!

Bye-bye hollywood lights!

Despite having a clear plan for each project, inevitably, “remodel on an older home” = surprises. Besides         aesthetics, the homeowners wanted to re-do this bathroom because they could feel a draft under their cabinetry. When the tub decking was removed, it was found that a lot of pests were able to get into this area below. Yuck, but better found now than never, right?! A thorough cleaning of all crawl spaces and all new insulation was required before construction continued.

Once the area was sealed and all new drywall installed, our live edge floor started to take shape. To fill in the space that was previously occupied by the tub, we devised this live edge tile flooring design. The shower footprint was expanded as much as possible, without having to resize the window. That orange mat is floor heating leading from the shower floor out to the new vanity – no cold feet for our cold winter days!

Below you see the foundation of the true GEM of this bathroom remodel. An “interesting” element was the homeowner’s request, and our solution was to introduce a curved shower into the space. A cement curb was built to house the rounded shower glass. There is a reason you only see square showers; it was a real     pickle to get that rounded glass, but man, does it create a beautiful effect!
