Every once in awhile a client will reach out with a special request. This time my client said he wanted his house to feel like a pirate lives there. I immediately thought I hope he doesn't want me to literally turn his kitchen into a pirate ship LOL! Thankfully, we are were able to draw inspiration from that instead so we went with darker, more moody colors and lots of metal and wood accents.
Welcome to the beach cottage! I just love this house but it did have some issues that needed to be addressed. For starters it was only a two bedroom house and the layout was awkward. The first thing we had to do was address the layout. Y'all know if it does not function well it doesn't matter how pretty it is it will drive you nuts!
I have to say I really love it when I get my hands on a home that has not been updated since the 1970's because the transformation is so big! This house needed all the bathrooms updated as well as the kitchen. Today I am going to show you the kitchen and half bath remodel, and then next month I will talk about the two bathrooms. Spoiler alert-their some of my favorite bathrooms!

As a mom, I understand putting your needs second to your families. So when my client reached out to me about updating her master bathroom, I immediately wanted to give her everything she wanted! She had lived with this builder grade bathroom for years, and now that her children are grown and out of the house it was finally time to do something nice for her.
Moving into a new home is exciting, but it can also be frustrating! Where do you put all your furniture into your new space and how do you make it your own? This is exactly what my new clients were dealing with when they moved into their new house. We turned an awkward space and made it into the grown up/kid friendly space my clients were wanting!
Did you know that mudrooms/laundry rooms are now being called “disinfection stations”? Sounds a little clinical to me, so I’m just going to keep calling it a laundry room. And your laundry room is the hardest working room in your house.Whether you live in the Mississippi Gulf Coast like me and deal with sand everywhere, or you're up north dealing with snow, most laundry rooms need to serve several functions. It’s a landing zone for when you come into the house for shoes, purses, keys, backpacks, and all the things!
Summer is fast approaching and one survey found that 80% of Americans plan to travel this summer! When my client reached out about renovating an investment property for an Air BNB, I knew we had to make it the perfect beach vacation spot.
