Hillcrest Historic Remodel



This gem was originally built in 1910. I wanted to give it an updated look while maintaining the home’s vintage feel. In the kitchen I used a beautiful glazed ceramic tile for the full backsplash in a classic brick pattern with quartz countertops in Calacatta. Dark grey cabinetry with polished nickel hardware and retro inspired light fixtures add to the vintage vibe. Hardwood floors match the original hardwood which we were able to preserve throughout the rest of the home.


Notice the beautiful woodwork original to the home!

The master bath is done in Bianco Venatino marble with mosaic floors, wainscot and marble tiled shower. A claw foot tub completes the look.

The secondary baths all continue the theme with brick patterned ceramic tile and contrast grout.

Encinitas Custom Home


Just completed!  This gorgeous custom coastal contemporary home is located in Encinitas, California and has fabulous ocean views!

In order to lend the home a casual coastal feel and to balance out the more contemporary features of the home, I opted for Siberian Oak hardwood for the main living areas flooring.

The stacked stone fireplace wall adds drama to the focal point of the room and separates the indoor/outdoor living spaces.









For the main back splash in the kitchen I used a large format porcelain tile in a cement look and a mosaic glass and stainless back splash on the adjacent wall. I kept the open feel by using a combination of stainless open shelving with barn door hardware and glass panels, and upper cabinets with aluminum framed glass paneled doors. Easy care Quartz counter tops and a large island with two levels for casual dining completes the look.
