Munjoy Hill Renovation & Restoration
We provided design for the bathrooms, lighting, finishes, and colors. The builder was restoring a falling apart two-family home on vibrant Munjoy Hill in Portland, Maine, into a single family home and was excited to incorporate some authentic touches such as antique doors and hardware with updated amenities.

Lakehouse sneak peek #1
Two very active boys with a passion for all things outdoors need a rather indestructible space. Using reclaimed barn-board from a local barn and antique painted pine flooring (also from Maine), we created dramatic accents and storage and their bathroom. A hidden step in the toe kick and lowered sink allows little ones to be big kids for as long as they need. Sunbrella fabric on the roman shades ensures they can hold up to use and moisture.
We built storage into the eaves for both clothing and ample toy storage. The room also features indoor/outdoor rugs and drapery fabric, as well as solid wood bunk beds and custom matched built-ins that will stand the test of time. Kid-friendly elements include safety cages on the ceiling fan and organic mattresses for healthy breathing. Repurposed, sustainable materials not only set examples for children to live by but also create a unique, special narrative about their space.

The tailored sleeper sofa was done in sunbrella chenille. You would never guess the soft texture is water and dirt repellant. The rug is also indoor/outdoor. Pro photos of the finished project coming in 2017.
Lake House Sneak Peek #2
We work with a select group of investors, homeowners, and real estate brokers looking to present a move-in-ready property and attract the best possible buyer. Our specialty is renovating existing structures, from layout and design to staging the final touches. We warehouse inventory in Portland.
We work from Kennebunkport to Camden.
Great Diamond Island Kitchen Renovation
Working on a Maine island in the winter has its challenges, but the end result is beautiful and functional. An urban, Mad Men inspired kitchen with custom cabinetry, new venting/HVAC, gorgeous quartz countertops and Cipollino marble backsplash will stand the test of time in this modern vacation home.
Rosemont Downsize, Portland
This couple downsized to a lovely 1100 sq foot home in Portland. We curated an immense collection of art. The goal was to create a cohesive color story in each space to show as much art as possible without feeling cluttered. Creative storage was designed and built into the dining room, turning a dead space into a beautiful, functional part of the home. The 3 season porch was properly transformed into a year round office nook, and the smaller bedroom became a larger addition into a proper master bedroom thanks to the talent of Jamie Broadbent at Hellbent Design. Jamie designed the clients' previous Harborview Townhome and understood their aesthetic. We prioritized aging in place.
For more information on the art in the photos, please see the blog post.
Thank you to Abigail Gervais of Endicott College for the photography.
West End Historic Home
A few glimpses of the oldest home on the west end historic register in Portland, Maine. Furnishings, wallpaper, paint, window coverings, and art for this 3 story home. We hired and coordinated subtractors to get the home move in ready for this client moving to Maine.
Historic Western Promenade
Middle Ridge Winery
Some dear friends in CA asked me to help with their winery's tasting room. Their vision was to combine wine and local art, with room to grow into an event space. The building was rather old and dated. We whitewashed the pine walls, but decided to leave the ceiling alone. The concrete was stained and all lighting replaced. I used the brands colors" black and copper. More on that later...
The biggest obstacle to the projects were those large structural beams-they could not be moved or removed. The original layout shown to me was arranging furniture around the posts. I chose to build a large table AROUND the posts. Community table, bar height, copper topped. It has grown to be the heart of the room. All of the furniture-from upholstery to tables are modular. Everything can be put together, moved around, even the art walls. The space can host large events or small groups simply enjoying wine and art.
