Telling your story with experience and the ability to

visualize and elevate the way you live.

- Michelle Cortizo

 

Converting a porch into a kitchen is not an obvious design choice, however it was the perfect transition for this 1904 home.

The island post were the findings from an antique hunt several years prior by the clients. Weathered and aging (the post, not the clients)for several years in the yard, the old gate post finally realized their purpose.

This kitchen was awarded a “Prism” award for reuse and conversion for building and design. The best reward is that the homeowners love their kitchen!

A marketing firms lofty conference room.

 

Working spaces that function and feel good to be in will heighten your productivity.

The Westinghouse Loft provided a space that was perfect for my client and her growing business. Style your work environment to elevate what your passionate about.

Beachy porcelain tiles. Calacatta Bluette vanity top and a shower wall detail that gives this New England home is nautical flair.

Coastal doesn't have to be void of sparkle! High above the navy island hangs the jewelry, visually connecting the soffit and the surface below. Mixed metal finishes invite a casual elegance and real life spaces.

This project was done in collaboration with RoomScapes Cabinetry and R.W. & Sons construction.

Coastal mix! The clients wanted a coastal home but did not want it to be too casual. They opted to go for a blend of high and luxe incorporating some of what they already had to reflect more of who they are.
