CASE STUDY #1: Greenwood Condo
Melissa has owned her one bedroom condo in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle for ten years. Although she loves her home, it never felt quite finished. There was no art hung on the walls, and she had very little decor, aside from a few small plants on a windowsill in the living room. Over the past few years, she made some improvements to the condo by replacing the carpet with vinyl wood flooring and adding black accent paint to the main wall in the living room. Despite her efforts, Melissa's condo still felt like it was a work in progress and she wasn't sure how to make it feel more complete and more like home.
With minimal preparation, we were able to completely transform and improve her home in only four hours. The only items Melissa purchased were a couple of throw pillows, a few lamps, some plants, and a handful of art pieces she found at thrift stores the previous month. The total cost for these items was under $200.
CASE STUDY #2: a young family's first home
When a young couple, Chris and Tracey, bought their first home in Seattle's Central District neighborhood, they contacted us to help them with a design concept, space planning and furniture selection. The project was completed in 2013, but has adapted well to their changing lifestyle and growing family. We worked within a reasonable budget to create a home that is beautiful and functions well.
CASE STUDY #3: capitol hill condo
After living in an apartment in Belltown for many years, Peter decided to purchase a condo in an iconic building on Capitol Hill, featuring sweeping views of the Seattle skyline and South Lake Union. The furniture he owned was minimal, mostly vintage hand-me-downs. Instead of the traditional design process, we worked within Peter's budget to provide him with the coaching he needed to improve his space and make it his own. We provided guidance on changes including paint, replacing the carpeting with wood flooring, updating the kitchen cabinets and pulls, furniture selection, lighting, layout and decor. Instead of selecting every detail, we coached him on style and where to buy furniture. With our help, Peter was able to eventually complete the space on his own, by adding furniture and artwork that he loved and found meaningful.
