Welcoming you inside this home is Belgian bluestone flooring sourced from Imperial Tile & Stone warmed up with cedar wood paneling on the walls for a rustic vibe.

On the ceiling, the light fixture is the Morris Flush Mount while on the wall is the Alice Sconces, both sourced from Visual Comfort. Continue below to see inside this beautiful home…

Very high-quality work with color and materials. Especially with wood.

WOW, I love everything the designer picked and the builder is a true artist in my opinion..the hood is a beautiful work of art, the prettiest I’ve ever seen. I love the clean lines of it and the metal trim is just perfect. If I lived in the same city of this designers shop, I would go broke buying from her. She has excellent taste. Just wish I did live close enough to use her talents..
