I would first like to extend a huge thank you to my clients, David and Ami. Without your dreams, desire and determination your three-phase remodeling project would have never transpired. Thank you for your trust and confidence in myself and my team. I truly loved working on your beautiful home. Secondly, to the teams at North Shore Magazine, Abt, Sub-Zero/Wolf, Miele, Sam Mormino Corporation, Rugport, PowerHouse, Platinum Poolcare Aquatech, Mr Floor Companies and DK&B Designer Kitchens & Baths for helping me pull together all the elements to this amazing weekend.

If I was able to meet you last weekend, thank you for coming by. If you did not have an opportunity to view this remarkable home, please give me a call at 847-996-0660. I would love to show you how your home remodeling dreams can come to fruition.

In Home Spas

by luxuria Email

Why pay for a fitness club and spa membership, when you can have one right inside your own home? Recently, home building & remodeling clients have been asking about in home spas and special features that make a home feel like a personal resort. I like to recommend installing these amenities in the master bathroom; the master bathroom should be a relaxing escape that makes a homeowner feel they are away from all the noise and craziness of the rest of the house. I completed a master bath in Northbrook IL that I consider a luxury retreat. Equipped with tall-beamed ceilings, a large shower with several water features and an old-fashioned claw foot tub with a heated back, this master bathroom is the ultimate getaway. Each master bath spa can be designed according to what makes the client relax. It is the perfect space to relax and rejuvenate because it’s intimate and private.

Recycled Vanity

For the earth friendly, a fabulous alternative to buying new pieces for your home is to recycle old pieces. I recently had a client who had bought an antique buntiere on E-Bay to use as a vanity in a formal powder room. We refurbished it, adding a gorgeous limestone with a cove over waterfall edge detail and voila!, we have an absolutely stunning vanity! Other details of the room included a niche for a mirror and wrought iron sconces that complimented the home’s old world charm. Not only is the outcome beautiful and meaningful, it is also a creative way to be more ecologically conscious.
