The master bathroom is supposed to symbolize your private sanctuary. Therefore, it is important to explore in full range of different layouts before deciding which one is right for your space. This is the one of the rooms where many of my clients love to invest most of their money on, mainly because they want that spa like atmosphere.  

The most popular question that I am always asked is how much does it cost to create my dream master bathroom. I tell them that it depends on style and budget. On average, to remodel a master bathroom can cost up to $9,000, but you can spend less than $5,000 to fix up the essentials needed in the bathroom.

Many of my client’s often say that the kitchen is the heart of their home. Needless to say, they are correct. This is a room where meals are made with your family and friends. It also a place where memories are made during the holidays and special occasions. Kitchens are not sedate and quiet rooms. They are rooms filled with energy, aroma, and texture.

I like to bring serenity to a room and in order to accomplish that, I become very selective when decorating my clients' guest rooms.

What defines a bedroom? Well, one thing would be your style. There are questions that a homeowner or renter needs to ask themselves. A bedroom is a place where your day begins and ends. This has to be a place that symbolizes who you are and also become your own personal little escape to relax.

Every square foot should be utilized not only for furniture, but for decorating possibilities. The current trend in a bedroom's furnishings is steering away from the standard set of a bed, two nightstands, and a few dressers all the same style and collections. Steering more towards romanced and eclectic combination of pieces to create a personal refuge or escape.

After you pick out the style you want and color scheme with your…

A family room is an informal, all purpose room. It is often confused with the living room. This room is designed to be a place where your family and guests gather for group recreations like watching TV, playing games, and countless other family activities. Often, the family room is adjacent to the kitchen. At times, it can lead to an outdoor living area such as the deck, garden, or terrace. Therefore, the family room should represent comfort and the style should represent the kind of time you spend there.

This room often has no single unifying theme tying them together. You can spot several different motifs that can tie them all together. Many family rooms…
