Welcome…

A home should welcome it’s occupants as well as its visitors.  The first impression of a home hints at what is beyond.  Here are a few of our favorites entries we have designed over the years.

Watercolor Master Suite

The Master suite in this watercolor home is a serene spa like space.  When we were installing the home I kept thinking “I LOVE this room” and I still do.  Take a look…

Peaceful retreat

When we were asked to design a modern yet peaceful beach side retreat for a family we can’t get in the car and drive their fast enough.  Those are magic Tracery words.  With those words in mind we created spaces that let the natural light and views compliment the soft yet modern interior.  It is a balancing game with white, texture, metals, woods, whitewash, marble, and tiles all working together.

Vestavia Hills, Alabama

Just a friendly reminder to pick up a copy of Birmingham Home and Garden from the newsstands.  It features a home we (AK and I) designed in Vestavia Hills, Alabama.  It was a really fun renovation for a really great family.  More to come but here is a peak at their new kitchen.  Makes you want to pour a glass of Rose’ and have a seat on the counterstool…. I wish I was doing that now  “Mary and I chatting about life and family and clinking glasses”.

Before and Afters: Southern Living 2012

Here is the second post of our new before and after series.  Remember the 2012 Southern Living Idea House we designed?  I just received some of the before photos from our friends over at Historical Concepts.  Historical Concepts was the architect for this renovation addition along with John Bynum Homes.  This project has so many moments it will have to have a second post.  Here are a few of my favorite moments in the project.

before and after a new series

We have had some great before and afters over time.  I just got the new issue of Birmingham Home and Garden in the mail and it features one of our more recent renovations.  We LOVE a renovation.  So it made me think.  We should share more of these.  The challenges in a remodel can lead to some really amazing outcomes.  So this is the first of our before and after series

Here is the first page of the story.  Pick up your copy today!
