2019 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show

In February the Kitchen & Bath Industry Show took place in Las Vegas, NV.  Our very own Nicole attended and came back with LOTS of ideas.  Some of this years highlights included rose gold fixtures, customized appliances, gorgeous jewel toned cabinetry and convenient storage for busy lives.  We loved all of the beautiful new colors and textures and cannot wait to offer these products to clients.

Here's a sneak peek at what's new for 2019!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Last week we had the pleasure of decorating the Children's Hospital of San Antonio Child Life Services Department for the Holidays.

This annual tradition is something we all look forward to each year.  The staff, volunteers and children alike are always excited to see us rolling our giant cart of Christmas goodies in!

A working train has now been added to this fun and whimsical tree to the delight of all the tiny visitors to the center.  

A big thank you to Children's Hospital and the Child Life Coordinator, Jessica Clayton, for allowing us to spread holiday cheer once again!

Details, Details - Alteza Residences

Isn't this view amazing!  We couldn't resist taking it in from our clients' downtown condo at the Alteza Residences.

When you walk in you are immediately drawn to the floor to ceiling view and it's not until you've taken it in and turn around that you really notice the Entry and Hallway from which you entered.

Our client was looking to add some pizzaz to an other wise bland area of the home. So we decided to give plain walls some interest by adding picture frame molding and included the front door in the fun with detailed trim in an intersecting line pattern.

Concept and Inspitation

This is what our Entryway and Master Bedroom Hall looked like before we got started.

And here we are in process.  The trim carpenter has already placed all of the molding and painting has started.  Doesn't it look better already?

The final product!

We had the front door painted the same dark finish as the original trim color.

The walls got a coat of crisp, white paint and these beautiful gold sculptural sconces were installed.

Beautiful new custom runner rugs were added to compliment the more modern tone.

A new chandelier that looks like a piece of art in its own right illuminates the study.

Now let's just admire that view one more time.

Tapatio Springs Remodel

This beautiful Master Bathroom remodel started as a dark and dated, traditional bathroom with a huge built-in tub area.  

The layout was moved around to incorporate the addition of a free standing tub while keeping the double sinks and making space for a larger shower.  

The result is a contemporary, light and airy Master Bath with vein-cut vintage travertine tiles throughout, Taj Mahal Quartzite countertops and a large walk-in shower with a beautiful view.  

The centerpiece of this room is the freestanding tub with split face travertine wall and floating shelves.

Large and in charge

What do you do when a client has an extra large Living Room and wants to entertain?  You customize an extra large cocktail table complete with stunning marble top. 

We started with this gorgeous slab of Calcutta Bluette Marble and this custom sized metal base with a metallic antique pewter finish.

Several weeks later the team from Delta Granite and Marble came in to do their final measure.  Their outstanding craftsmanship with cutting this stone down to size and mitering skills created the 2" extra thick edges.  

It took four of their guys to get this 450lb top placed. 

...and it is perfection wouldn't you say?

This piece is definitely the crown jewel of this space!
