A fun little piece from last Friday’s Wall Street Journal in the real estate and design section. Shannon was happy to give their writer a few insights for the article.
She also had the pleasure of sitting down to read the article in one of her very own deck chairs.
A few weeks ago we received an email from a client from last year. We had done some design work for her, a space planning challenge of a media and music room that needed plenty of storage.
We had presented her with 3 options and suggested our favorite- a wall to wall built-in that would accommodate almost all her requirements. She was happy with the designs and agreed with us about the built-in. That was
Imagine our delight when almost 5 months later she sent us the kindsest note and snaps of the completed room.
Our room is mostly finished, and we are slowly trying to get moved back in.
With a few modifications, it is very much like the original design…
Many thanks, we love it.
Rooftops on new buildings built in commercial zones in France must either be partially covered in plants or solar panels.
This became official back in March but continues to make us happy everyday. We always try to incorporate plants and energy saving, earth conscious practices into our interiors and exterior designs. How lovely that laws can have such a beautiful and positive impact on design and the earth at the same time.
Just one more reason to love France.
Form, function and color are dominant in this NY rooftop.

Chicago’s City hall speaks volumes about leading the way by example.

Siding is on, drywall is up and getting finished, wiring is temped in. Now, it is all gearing up for the finishing touches! Paint, fixtures, cabinetry, tile and more.
We took a quick stop-in to check out the job site yesterday. During the walk through, we kept marveling at the beauty and change that we saw throughout. Here are a couple of before and after snaps. Transformation abounds.
Knowing how to represent your work accurately and well is paramount in our business. Your portfolio is how you get clients.
A good photograph lets your style, expertise and ability to create and environment be captured into a 2d format. It has the ability to transport someone to an entirely different place and experience the atmosphere.
It is important to have a strong team of talented individuals around you. To know who has what skills and can excel at a specific task. Thankfully, Shannon has a long standing friendship + working relationship with the talented photographer, Mark Toal.
He has shot several of our interiors and we are always thrilled with his techniques + ability to accurately capture our spaces.
He received a lot of questions about his shoot at the ADU after his images were featured in Dwell Magazine online.
He explained his technique in this latest blog post where he is a contributing editor for the website Mirrorless Photo Tips.
