Project Summary

Our team reimagined our client’s living space, introducing a custom fireplace with a very modern floating quartz hearth and reclaimed wood beams for the mantle and additional shelving. The custom wall-mounted media cabinet is a combination of beautiful quarter sawn White Oak and Blackened Steel. The feature wall was fabricated on-site from reclaimed pallet wood. Tailored furniture pieces echo the modern, hard lines of the fireplace and media wall. Incorporating pattern, soft textures, and organic wood elements help to keep the space feeling warm and inviting.

Client Comment

“I have worked with Chris twice now. First on a small project updating the living spaces of a modern home, and most recently in completely renovating (inside and out) a 100 year old craftsman. I can without exaggeration say I would not have survived the project with my sanity intact without Chris’ assistance. The design for the most recent renovation has led to a home that is beautiful and comfortable. A perfect blend of style that respects the age of the house, bringing in the right updates and changes in layout/space that updates it to (my) modern living needs. Outside of his design choices, his management of the project and availability to handle every detail justified to me the expense of an interior designer. Balancing work, related travel and a construction site at the same time is an ulcer inducing combination… unless you have Chris ever present to help with oversight and make critical time sensitive decisions with full respect for your needs and design preferences. Among a fantastic contractor and landscape designer/builder, he was key to keeping the team focus on the end goal of the project and not get side tracked by the inevitable project challenges. Chris is incredibly easy to work with, quickly adapted to my preferences, after a while able to express them better than I could myself. He helped me establish and stay within my budget, only expanding the scope when I asked. He is what you hope for in a designer – someone who listens to your needs but brings his unique ideas to create something you always wanted but couldn’t get to on your own. I highly recommend him.”
