Whole House Remodel: 90’s Traditional to Modern Luxury

As interior designers, we get so excited when we get to design a whole house remodel. To be trusted to transform a client’s home into their ultimate sanctuary is so rewarding. To do this well, we have to ask a lot of questions and listen between the lines to assure we hear the homeowner’s frustrations with the spaces, wishes, fears, and dreams.

Designer Premier designer, Heidi was awarded that honor on this dated home and asked to transform the aesthetic from traditional to modern. I am sure you agree, she nailed it! Most importantly, our clients were thrilled.
