A Master Bedroom Design...



Sorry for the lack of posts,  I've been a busy bee! I recently finished this bedroom design for a client, I  love the way it all came together. I love using a variety of pattern and texture to create a cohesive look when combined. As a bonus, it always helps a room feel unique and interesting. Choosing a specific design style for your bedroom can turn your bedroom into your favorite space in the house.

My client wanted her room to feel complete and wanted it to be her own sanctuary, a place where she could go to relax. I hope this design plan accomplished her goal. Can't wait to see the plan implemented, I know it's going to look stunning!

Client's Fresh & Modern Kitchen Design

Have I told you how much I love designing kitchens. It really is so enjoyable for me to come up with an entirely new look that matches up with my client's style.  I really adore the combination of brass and silver, such a fun take on fresh and modern.

Calcutta marble is quickly becoming my favorite source for counter tops. I love the mixture of grays and golds. My favorite look is continuing the slab of marble onto the back splash area and down the sides of the kitchen island, such a bold and dramatic statement! Adding a mid-century vibe with the pendants, bar stools and kitchen chairs  with the classic marble and apron front sink keep things interesting.

The only bad part about designing for others is that I always want to change the look of what I currently have going on in my home.

New Master Bedroom Design..


Bedrooms are so fun for me to design. Usually I am working with a smaller space so it's quite easy to come up with plan that is budget friendly with lots of personality! Your bedroom should be your own sanctuary, a place you can escape to and feel peaceful, a space that makes you feel happy:) 

I recently finished this bedroom E-design for a distant client. She wanted mostly neutrals with subtle pops of blue. I really love the way it all came together and can't wait to see the plan implemented.

Bathroom dreams...Carrara Marble+Brass

I created this bathroom dream board for myself. If I were to start over with my master bath, I would  combine carrara marble with brass, the two together is a no-fail approach in my mind.  I would do the herringbone tile on the bathroom floor including the shower and do the marble subway tile on the shower surround. I would paint the walls in Benjamin Moore, white dove. 

I don't know why I torture myself with new ideas. I guess this is my idea of fun:) I don't plan on remodeling my bathroom anytime soon but if I were to do it, this would be the plan!



I love putting together new projects and remodels especially when it involves tile and paint!

Fresh new living room E-Design...

Is the weekend really already over? Why must it go by so fast? My kids start school right around the corner. I have been feeling so ready to be on a schedule and have some "me" time. Now that the reality is kicking in, I'm somewhat mourning the fact that I won't have my little shadows around with me all day going on adventures and hanging out at home. I love them so much and need to embrace every stage and every age instead of being sad about the inevitable! Easier said then done..

Anyway, onto this..Just wrapped up this living room E-Design. It's always interesting to see how the design starts out and  where it ends up. I am always tweaking things and moving things around until it clicks. This one took a while but I'm really happy with the end result! It comes pretty easily for me to design for others but for myself, it is a bit of a challenge... still trying to figure out why that is. I think because I have to live with it and if I buy the wrong piece of furniture or paint the walls using the wrong color, I have no one to blame but myself.



I am so passionate about design and love putting together these E-Design boards. Makes it so worth it to receive positive feedback and excitement for the design plan! Need help with a room? Email me at stacicahvez@ymail.com for a quote.

New E-Design board for client lucky!

After taking a summer hiatus and only working on several design jobs, I am ready to start taking client's again. I have thoroughly enjoyed my summer travels and spending time with family and friends, it was a break well needed. I feel refreshed and ready to press forward and focus on my blog as well as my design business.

I had a client from California contact me about making over her living room utilizing my E-Design services. After establishing her style, the colors she's attracted to, her budget and the over all look and feel she was wanting to achieve, I came up with this design plan.  She wanted to incorporate her favorite colors, mustard and navy blue. The chester sofa and swoop armchairs paired together make an attractive combo. I love that she was not afraid to go bold and add lots of color and personality to her design plan. 

She is thrilled with the look and can't wait to start ordering the pieces and putting her room together. It makes my day when I get such positive feedback and excitement for the design. I can't wait to see the new look,  I know it's going to be stunning!

Home Exterior: Before & After...

My cute neighbor and friend had been wanting to change the rust accent color on her home's exterior for years. The color never clicked with her, she wanted to go with a more neutral color that would compliment the existing color scheme. She also wanted a different color for her front door.

I brought over my handy Sherwin Williams color deck and we tried finding the perfect color. We all know how tricky picking out the right paint color can be, trying to pick out the right color from a 2 inch color swatch is no easy task:)

We thought we had settled on the right colors and started painting. The color ended up looking like a stark white and was not blending well with the existing colors. I started painting the front door and the pretty green tone we picked out ended up looking more like a florescent, lime color. We knew that these colors weren't working well. 


Back to the drawing board. I pulled out my swatch deck and went to the color swatch of my fool-proof, go-to color...Agreeable Gray. I have used this color in so many client projects and I have yet to be disappointed. If you are looking for the perfect greige color, this is it! It works well with both tan and gray tones. However, Agreeable Gray was looking a bit too light for this project so we went with the next darker shade down on the swatch, Anew Gray. This color was the perfect balance of the right color and the right shade. For the front door, we thought a darker shade would pop more so we went with a darker shade on the same swatch, Warm Stone.

These two colors were meant to be, they blend perfectly and compliment the existing color scheme. My friend is so happy with the new look and is feeling like it is much more her style! A day spent painting with fun friends resulted in a entirely new look and feel.





What do you think of the new look?
