Personalizing Your Home Is Our Mission

Anyone with interior designer blood coursing through their veins, like our entire design team, has real pleasure in helping homeowners create a look which fits their own personal style and reflects who they are.

Achieving your look, for your tastes and lifestyle is really what our business is all about. If everyone wanted the same exact look, there would be no need for interior designers. And, the world would be a pretty boring place.

This month we are sharing with you a few examples of some of the unique things we’ve done to help homeowners create that special look they were seeking.

Sometimes inspiration for these ideas comes from the homeowners and sometimes their IE designer will suggest things which would never have crossed the minds of the homeowners. We can do the same for you, your neighbors or relatives. Give us call to discuss.

Master Bedroom Makeover


These clients are not afraid of color and it shows in this gorgeous master bedroom makeover.

The design started with the rug. We showed them a spectacular rug with lots of color and an interesting pattern . They fell in love with it right away.

From the rug we painted the wall a deep brown for the focal wall behind the headboard and a pale chartreuse for the rest of the walls. Because the rug had so much color and movement, we kept the other patterns in the room to a minimum. But that did not limit the amount of color we used.

The melon colored headboard is made of six upholstered squares; bolted together and mounted to the wall. To highlight the rug colors, we made king shams in a multi-colored flame-stitch pattern. We kept all the bedding neutral with a mocha dust ruffle, which matches the side panels on the windows, and a cream colored linen coverlet.

Nightstands are grey weathered wood. Lamps are a melon colored subtle snake skin pattern. The reading chair is grey linen with a fun ball pillow that matches the shams for lumbar support.

Our clients were extremely happy with their new master bedroom in their SaddleBrooke Ranch home.


These clients love the poppy mural in their California home, and asked us to figure out a way to add a poppy mural in their Dove Mountain home. We chose to add this poppy mural to the backsplash above the cooktop range. They love it.

We also wanted to bring a little color to the niche in the hallway of this same home. We decided to mount some glass and metal art, in varying sizes and depths, tying in the colors we featured in the kitchen and living room.

Fireplace / Entertainment Wall

Clients wanted to change the fireplace wall in their new home to look more southwestern to go with their furnishings. They also wanted a place to hang the TV, but not over the fireplace. The country style mantle, shelves and niches all had to go.


The fireplace was designed to look like a beehive fireplace without being one. We tapered the shape with stacked stone and added a new wood mantle. We also changed the shape and length of the hearth so it was more in proportion to the width of the wall and the new arched fireplace. Because we removed the curved hearth and put in a straight one, we had to replace the floor tile in front of the hearth. We were lucky to find the matching tile.

The wall where the TV is mounted was built out a total of 12” so that the TV could be recessed into it. This was carefully designed because the perpendicular wall had a window that was already close to the corner. We didn’t want to crowd the window.

Our clients are super thrilled with how it turned out and loved working with one of our preferred contractors.

What Clients Are Saying

I was concerned whether they could work within my budget. It came out very well. My husband was surprised at all I got for the price.

We were mildly apprehensive at first, knowing that major work would take place in our absence. IE has proven over and over that we can confidently leave and return, months later to a job beautifully done.

I hadn't worked with a designer before and didn't know what to expect. I was worried about being steamrolled into things I didn't want or like. That wasn't the case at all.
