Design Highlights

Living with Glamor

Kristin described Tiffany’s style as “glamor modern,” so when decorating the living room, we wanted to make sure the furniture was as stylish as it was comfortable. The new European oak flooring is also much more elegant than the dated tile she used to have.

Light and Bright

Taking out a window can be risky, but the new white countertops and marble backsplash keep the space feeling bright and lively, even without the natural lightning. Plus once it was gone, we had the room to install new custom cabinets that maximized Tiffany’s storage space.

Dining in Luxury

Flanked by pantry storage, the built in banquette seating provides high class dining luxury all in the comfort of Tiffany’s home. Whether she wants to host her extended family or have a relaxing night alone with her daughter, Lyric, the space will always feel both opulent and cozy.
