Bathroom Lighting

Lighting is important throughout the home, but one of the most important spaces to light properly is the bathroom. Unfortunately, bathroom lighting is often pushed to the side in the remodeling process in favor of more "fun" decisions like countertop selections and tile layouts. With bathrooms becoming more spa-like and less utilitarian, proper lighting is essential to making the most of the space...
Mudroom Bench and Storage

This Laundry and Mudroom renovation project was recently completed for a client in Medfield, MA. Our client from Overfield Estates was anxious to update her existing laundry and back-hall to get a fresh look and improved traffic flow throughout the space. The back-hall had closets that made the traffic flow a bit cramped and the laundry room (next to the back hall) was also inefficient, with free-...
kitchen remodel

This job is a kitchen remodel (with some surprise structural work) that took this kitchen from 1984 to the present. The homeowners bought this house knowing that it didn't fit their style, and they knew they wouldn't be able to call this house a true "home" until they could put their creative touches on it. Soon after they closed on the house, they hired us to start making this house their dream h...

Needham 1843 Antique Remodel Masters Touch Design Build recently completed an antique remodel on a home in Needham. The front hall and dining room in this charming 1840’s home were in need of an update: the walls were covered in very old, uneven dark paneling, the floors (carpeted in the dining area and loose tile materials in the hall) were worn and out of level, the built-ins were dated and warp...

How to Style A Kitchen Like A Pro   The last step of a kitchen remodel is often the most overlooked one—styling your space.  By styling, I mean accessorizing the space and bringing it to life. You could have the most beautiful Carrara marble countertops and the perfect herringbone backsplash, but your kitchen will fall flat visually if you don’t finish the space with some personal touches...

Interior Lighting hangs in room

The Basics of Interior Lighting Design Interior lighting is vital to the overall interior design of your home.  In fact, it is arguably the most significant factor of the interior design; your home’s “atmosphere” will be created by the types of light fixtures used and how they’re placed.

Blue Wallpaper in Bathroom

To Wallpaper or not to Wallpaper? Wallpaper is a subject that many homeowners don’t even want to discuss.  I think I know why: they’ve either tried to remove improperly installed paper that literally removed part of the wall with it, or they have an image burned into their memory of that velvet flocked floral wallpaper from their grandma’s house, or both. The truth is, wallpaper has never really ...
