WHOLE HOUSE OVER 3,000 FEET
The homeowner loves midcentury modern design. The designer wanted to use that reference without it looking like you were walking into a catalog of midcentury design. The designer sourced paintings that became the focal point for the living room, which carried the focus of art throughout the house. Adding bold color, textures and scale of pattern helped to balance the open space of the high ceilings and large windows.

WHOLE HOUSE UNDER 3,000 FEET
Designed by an architect for himself and his family, the 2,500-square-foot Moapa House renovation and addition transforms a dark and choppy 1970s ranch-style house into a home full of natural light and a strong connection to the outdoors. This project is unique in that the architect also played the role of owner and contractor. This allowed him to focus on the sustainable practice of reusing materials in a way that would have been difficult otherwise.

This kitchen is in a vacation home in Black Butte Ranch in Central Oregon. It was built in the 1970s and was starting to get a little beat up, dingy and dated. The homeowners love spending their summer vacations at the home as an escape from city life but felt it was time to update the home to make it feel a little more upscale and in line with their personal style. The predominant style in the surrounding community is rustic.

The Hidden Touch Studios
This fully renovated bathroom is modern, minimalistic and striking. By using simple and classic materials like large format black hexagon tile for the floor, large subway tile for the backsplash and walls and Carrera marble for the countertop, this was able to be executed. The brass fixtures and hardware are the key pieces in this space, they are both intriguing and artful. Along with the matte black finishes to the hardware on the shower doors to juxtapose with all the white tile used in this space.

ENTERTAINING SPACE INTERIOR
Dramatic, asymmetrical, high-style, and inviting describe the design of this unique contemporary entertaining space. The previous design was dated, choppy, cluttered, uninviting and lacked necessary storage, a focal point and visual harmony. The ingenuity and uniqueness of the design includes a wall-to-wall hearth, which is the cohesive element that pulls the elements together.

My Suiseki collection is inspired by the Japanese art of displaying small natural stones to illicit the feeling of vast landscapes. In nature, the miniature is seldom mundane. In a similar manner, the lines in my furniture, both the natural and made-made, present a landscape fit for exploration. Each slab tells a unique story and I maintain a sensitivity toward how this story can give each piece a deeper meaning.
