phinney first

This is the house that got my design career started. Purchasing the home from spec. builders when it was just framed, I made every architectural design decision to create this Arts & Crafts Phinney Ridge replica. I selected the windows and doors, designed the trim carpentry, chose all of the paint and stain colors and architectural finishes (including flooring, tile, cabinetry, countertops, light fixtures) and selected all bathroom fixtures.

This project gives a sense of my overall interior design talent in terms of the furnishings, art, window coverings, and space planning. Imagine that this was a blank slate except for the architectural framing, and I was able to select and choose every detail. Period elements such as a board and batten wainscot with plate rail in the dining room, beadboard wainscot and hexagonal tile floor in a bathroom with a pedestal sink and clawfoot tub, and space efficient kitchen banquette to make the most of the great room at the rear of the house. This home was featured on the Phinney Home Tour and was used for numerous magazine and commercial shoots.
