I love the look and welcome of a red front door but selecting the perfect shade it tricky. Try three swatches and take a day and night to decide on the perfect shade.

Extend the height of windows by installing drapery panels to the ceiling. Here we extended the panels on both sides of the window and door to make them appear wider. An added benefit was warming the space by coverting the awkward corner wall. In small bedrooms, use solid panels that blend with the wall color for instant luxury.

This home owner needed a home office that doubled as an occasional guestroom. We selected a medium toned custom sleeper (no bars) and “shrunk” the desk to the width of a console table. The butterscotch paint was a custom mix used to play down the scale of the sofa.

Creating outdoor rooms is a great way to enjoy your garden as well as show off the size and features when you decide to sell.

The cabinet crown molding in this kitchen was custom created to compliment original trim detail throughout the home. The real jewel in this galley is the glass subway tiled back splash that visually widens the space.

Keeping public areas clutter free and neutral is important when selling your home but it's just as important for the space to feel warm and inviting.
