From Basement Play Room To Home Office/Home School Room

Please click here to see how I may be able to help during this #StayAtHome #WorkFromHome period.

I hope everyone is doing well! I'm going to get right to this room makeover because it may provide some inspiration to help your family adjust to working and/or studying from home. Through my online design plan service, I designed a space for my client that serves as an efficient home office for mom and dad, a functional study area for the kids, and a quiet reading area for all. 

This lower level space had previously been used as a play area, but was mainly a blank canvas. I divided the large room into three zones; mom and dad's work zone, the kids study zone and a reading/relaxation zone. 

Here is a look at the room BEFORE:

Here is a look at the design plan that I created for my clients after a brief online consultation. They followed this plan with a few adjustments to achieve this new room...



The Plan...




My client did all of the custom built in's himself! He even continued his handy work in the adjacent room! Look what else he created...






This transformation came at a great time for this family.  They adaptation to working and studying from home has hopefully been a little smoother for them knowing they have these dedicated work/study zones. I appreciate the opportunity to design for them and to have had a little part in their adjustment during this unprecedented time.



As always, I appreciate your visit and hope you find some inspiration in my projects that can be applied in your own home. If you would like a custom online design plan, please visit my design services menu to see how it works.

Lower Level Family Hangout - Family Room

Please click here to see how I may be able to help during this #StayAtHome #WorkFromHome period. 

Hi friends, I hope this post finds you all safe and healthy. 
Today, I'd like to share an online design plan I just created for a clients lower level basement family room. This room will be used now more than ever, it will be a cozy spot for her family to relax. She already has a lovely tan sectional and arm chair. The floors are a beautiful gray washed faux barn wood plank laminate and the walls are a nice neutral tone. 

I selected everything she needs to finish off the space. Take a look...









Thanks for stopping by!

#StayAtHome $150 OFF Home Office Online Design Plans

Needless to say, the past few weeks have been a whirlwind. Among all the other things we are dealing with, many of us have had to adjust quickly and abruptly to working/studying/taking classes remotely from home full time. If you are scrambling to set up an organized, functional, inspiring work space (or study space) in your home, I'd like to help by offering $150 OFF my design fee for "Home Office" or "Home Study Space" Online Design Plans booked within the next week (offer expires 4/8/20).

Let's design a work space that allows you (or your student) to work/study comfortably and efficiently from home. Whether it's a whole room dedicated to work/study or it's a room that has to pull double duty and easily transition as needed (Example: This Home Office Dining Room). I'm here to make it happen. Besides having a fully functioning home office set up that's just right for you, you'll have the best background in your next Zoom meeting! 

Below is an example of a recent Home Office Design Plans project I completed for a client... 
Here is the room Before the Online Design Plan:

Here is the room After the Online Design Plan:

After a quick online consultation, reviewing photos of the space and gathering measurements from my client via email, I created a step by step Design Plan for her to follow. She implemented her plan resulting in this lovely transformation!

I hope you are all doing well and staying safe!

Our New Cabin Lake House Camp Living Room


If you follow me on social media, you may have caught my posts regarding our new family lake house. Just before Quarantine 2020, we closed on a 1934 cabin located in the woods of Northern Michigan. Once the quarantine was announced, I moved my design studio there to work remotely while hunkered down with my family. 

(Here's a look at the living room when we closed on the cabin). 

This is not how I envisioned announcing our new adventure. I had plans of making the announcement and then taking you along on a series of "before" and "afters"... but as we've all been reminded, life doesn't always go as planned. Therefore, I decided to just start sharing our new place in real time, before any projects commence, as my family gets to know our cabin. And, it's pretty cozy already!


(Another angle of the living room when we closed on the cabin)

I'd love for you to follow along. I created a story highlight on my Instagram to share photos and videos of our new cabin that we've named, "Camp Big Bear". I've already shared a few our our "firsts" at Camp Big Bear. Such as; our first meal, first sunset, as well as the discovery of some of the fun quirks (a face on a tree outside the bathroom window). lol. 

Today, I'd like to share the first design board I created for the camp. This is the design plan I have created for the Living Room. It will be the first space I cozy up as it's the most used. 


Take a look at the plan for the
Camp Big Bear Living Room...

The previous owners left a unique antler lighting story, and a nice set of black leather sofas which are insanely comfy and in great shape. I'll be keeping them in the space and building the design from there. The room already has so many amazing features. Here is a look at the new furniture arrangement I have planned...



I'd like to keep all of the new design elements very simple, as not to compete with the gorgeous hand hewn log walls, the stone fireplace and the amazing knotty pine ceiling. (More to come soon regarding the history of this cabin). I'm currently searching the marketplace for second hand log accent furniture. I would love something vintage if it comes along. I'll be cozying up the sofas with throw pillows and quilts. A large, natural fiber area rug will provide texture and warmth over the tile floor. And, a pretty piece of art depicts the color palette I'm using as well as pays homage to our new lake. 


(So far, Murphie loves it here).


Right now, taking care of my family and my design clients is my priority, but I look forward to some Camp Big Bear projects in time. Please stay tuned! I hope you and your family are well and staying safe. Thank you for stopping by today and take care my friends!

Rustic Industrial Loft Design

I currently have openings for new EDesign projects! Click here for info. 
Today's featured design plan is for an EDesign Client moving into a downtown loft for the next year or so while her lakeside home is undergoing a large renovation. I used most of her existing furniture in her loft design and added a few budget friendly, new items to create a look that is not only stylish and fits the theme of the downtown loft, but also reflects her love for rustic, like-life, farmhouse style.  We did this without overspending on what will be a somewhat temporary space.

This design has a great vibe that is slightly industrial with a cozy twist. 
Take a look...
