Our clients are our inspiration. They are the life blood that gives our designs a soul. They keep us continually thinking, designing, and analyzing. The result is almost always a great relationship and an amazing design that reflects our wonderful clients.
“thoughtful, meticulous and creative.”
I found myself overwhelmed by all the details and with that, the decisions that came with renovating a kitchen/dining room/living room areas. Emily eliminated the stress by narrowing down options, prioritizing decisions, and keeping us on track. She's thoughtful, meticulous and creative. I really felt like she understood our style and i couldn't be happier with the way it all turned out. We've been in the new space for 3 months and it just feels like home. I know I'll be seeking her expertise when the next home project comes along!
“took the time to listen”
Emily really took the time to listen to what my vision was for the space. She was able to take that vision and make it come alive!
“The result: every day I am grateful.”
I knew something could be done with the dark, closed off kitchen of my split level home. After a very long time trying to imagine what to do I called Emily. At our first meeting, we talked about my kitchen, but also lifestyle, family, and travels. The plan she presented was not something I had ever imagined. The plan was perfect, from overall design concept down to colors and small details. There are a lot of decisions to be made during remodeling and Emily was always there to help me. The result: Every day i am grateful. My family loves our new open space and efficient, beautiful kitchen. This would not have happened without Emily’s vision and attention to detail. Thank you so much, Emily!
We are absolutely thrilled with the way Daryl converted an old double garage into a great room. He focused on the view in a way that makes people gasp when they walk in. The glass, high ceilings, and huge beams complement and bring the outside in.
Daryl was easy to work with, and his pricing was really fair. We are so grateful to him for giving us such a gorgeous retirement home.
“listened to our ideas, asked great questions.”
Emily is a joy to work with! She listened to our ideas, asked great questions to understand our needs and tastes, threw out fabulous ideas, and worked with us to come up with a final design that we just love. Her friendly yet professional approach, her patience as we explored different possibilities, her technical know-how in translating the design into specifications for our builder, and her love for what she does made our experience working with her a wonderful one!

“I had a lot of ideas, but she came up with some amazingly creative designs and turned our kitchen into a dream space.”
Working with Emily was a wonderful experience. We had been struggling with a couple of designers from top cabinet companies, and were getting the same old boring kitchen design. It was so serendipitous that I met with Emily. She had offered to look at our plans and give me a few suggestions. As soon as I saw her initial ideas, I knew she had to be the one to design our kitchen and be on the job start to finish.
Emily scrapped all previous plans and started fresh. She took my wish lists and created a truly magical space! I had a lot of ideas, but she came up with some amazingly creative designs and turned our kitchen into a dream space. Emily took the time to understand how we lived and used our kitchen. She even opened all of our cabinets and photographed them to make sure she provided space for everything! It works beautifully for our family, and my husband and I often stop in the middle of some task in the kitchen just to admire how wonderfully everything works for us - really.
Emily is a lovely person to work with; very understanding and patient, listens to her clients, and is able to work well with the rest of the construction team.
Everyone that sees our kitchen is blown away and I still smile everyday as I sit in my cozy table nook and admire her creation.
Thank you Emily!
“a pleasure to work with”
Daryl was a pleasure to work with. We hired him to design a Granny Flat attached to our home for my Mom. The addition looks like it has always been there and in fact added to the overall beauty of our house in a way we could only have dreamed of.
“The finished result - a house, a home, that is exactly as we had envisioned”
When we moved into our 1920’s stone colonial, it was in drastic need of updated wiring, plumbing, and mechanics. We also wanted to update the interior, making it more inviting and use-able for our family needs while still honoring the feel of this century old home. When we first spoke with Emily, we knew right away she would be someone to help make this massive transformation, a joy, rather than burden. From start to finish, Emily was incredible, patiently listening to our visions for the house, curating designs, textures, colors, and pieces, all based on observing and understanding our own styles. The finished result - a house, a home, that is exactly as we had envisioned, making better use of the space, while still keeping the original charm of this house. Emily was spot on with her eye…. From architectural work, to interior details, making this 10 month renovation process that much simpler, and easier. We would highly recommend Emily to anyone looking for architectural and design work for their home.
