Built in 1905, this gorgeous home has maintained it’s original character for over 100 years. When our client decided to remodel the entire master suite, there was no question that we wanted to try to preserve that level of detail while also introducing timeless yet contemporary elements.
New construction is such a thrilling process where each day is different, and I truly love and appreciate each step. I love the day drywall gets hung. I love when trim work starts going in. I love when tile gets grouted and when I finally get to see my designs come to life. I'm also the least patient designer that ever lived because I just want it built NOW, and get so excited for it to be done!
It’s that time again! Parade of Homes time!
This year, I worked with Mosaic Properties to design a spec home for their development Balsam Waters in Grand Rapids. This home is 3403 square feet, and listed at $609,900. Designing spec homes is a fun challenge because while you have to design it ‘neutral’ enough that it appeals to lots of different types of families and couples, it also has to be special enough that someone can see themselves making it their home.

Designing homes for my clients is so personal. I come into their homes, get to know their lifestyle, personalities, likes, dislikes, and then do my best to make all their wildest dreams come true. In order for my clients to trust me with their homes, it’s important that I allow them into my life to get to know me the same way I’m trying to get to know them.
When I graduated high school 4th in my class and made the announcement that I would be attending college for interior design, I got a lot of confused reactions. Some teachers told me I was “wasting my talent”, while extended family made comments like, “there’s still time for her to change her mind.”
As far back as I can remember, I have wanted to be an interior designer. Typically, when you ask a child what they want to be, their answer changes from week to week, but my answer was always some version of design.
