Scandinavian inspired renovation of a four bedroom cottage on the shore of Lake Superior in Lutsen, MN. Calming materials, furnishings, and decor, both new and vintage were selected to connect to the natural aesthetic of the 3 acres of secluded boreal forest that surrounds.
Home Renovation in the quaint mountain town of Crested Butte, Colorado. The main goal of this renovation was to create a warm, comfortable place to retreat in the mountains and replace the dated white melamine in the main living space. This was achieved by using a mix of reclaimed wood for the kitchen structure and some of the furnishings. The decor was a blend of soothing textures and color palettes.
Through this collaboration, youth from HALO Foundation’s housing program are given a chance to learn valuable life skills through the entire process of making a product, along with marketing and selling the final piece. Sanding and finishing these wood trays offers therapeutic benefits to youth struggling with homelessness and other life issues. Learn more about the process here.

Interior Design and Architecture of our sustainable, modern home. Many Interior features include vintage and found items and products. Inspiration for the home came from our loft living in Boston and Kansas City, incorporating open living spaces to engage in our many family activities. The home is perched on a steep hillside and large expanses of windows take advantage of the wooded surround. It has been an evolving canvas to test new ideas and has won numerous awards and published in local and national magazines.
