Before: We organized the garage together by sorting through items and relocating those that belonged elsewhere, were suitable for sale or donation, or were no longer useful.

After: Everything is easy to see, easy to access, and organized by the categories that the homeowner uses most often.

Before: This extensive book library is a valued part of the homeowners’ lifestyle, however it had become cluttered, difficult to manage, and visually overwhelming.

After: We organized the books by subject and author, and then I added their favorite travel mementos, gifts, photos, and handmade artistic objects to stylize each shelf and transform their home library into a beautiful and spacious showcase of memories that had shaped their lives.

After: Closeup showcasing one shelf of the newly stylized home library.

Before: The tack room at this horse barn had become cluttered and it was difficult to see and access bridles, saddles, and saddle pads.

After: We created a spacious walkway to ensure safe, easy access to all the horseback riding equipment, and organized the gear in a way that was easy to see and maintain.

Before: This contents of this horse farm cabinet had become scattered, making it confusing for the riders to find tools and cleaning supplies.

After: We consolidated the horse farm supplies into clearly identifiable categories with labels for easy storage and retrieval.

Before & after: This office nook is located near the entranceway of the home and had become a cluttered repository for a variety of items. We reclaimed this space as a dedicated office by sorting and relocating things that were best suited for use in other areas of the house.

home design + decorating projects
Garage tool and toy storage area (before)

This kitchen corner had unsightly exposed cable wires, outdated wall shelving, and a fuse box that was distracting from the overall aesthetic of the space. I designed custom wooden wall shelving with floating brackets for housing ferns and teas, and added a custom canvas photograph to conceal the fuse box.
