Enchantment (Part 2) — the interior: A whimsical home built with a love for craftsmanship

The exterior of the home of Jim and Martina Glasgow unveils itself as eclectic, comfortable and full of personal style. Stepping into the home reveals more of the labor of love built into this lively, yet peaceful, warm space. With California craftsman architectural style and Japanese and Moroccan influences, the interior is like travelling around the world in a single breath. The quality of locally sourced craftsmanship is obvious and provides architectural interest. Natural materials, like painted terracotta tile from Mexico, personally crafted stained glass, Ipe wood and locally sourced cypress support the unique style of the owners. Polished...

The inspiration can come from travel, shelter magazines (re: the snooping on peers), trade markets or a simple dinner out of town.

It’s the mood that makes the dining experience in a tastefully designed space something you want to experience. Commercial design is the design that sets the tone for a busy office,...

Our home: From a house we bought to a home we made

In 10 years, my husband and I claim five different addresses as our home. Longevity just hasn’t been our mode when one of us enjoys, both professionally and personally, the process of renovating and designing homes. The South Creek home was never intended to be a lasting destination. After losing out on a contemporary home we had under verbal contract, we purchased the South Creek home. The expected path of renovate and sell has now changed. It wasn’t just the availability of nearby Elkhorn Creek, or the transformation of the exterior with the painting of the brick. What has...

Youthful spirit: A kitchen transformation designed for a youthful family

A recent remodel of a traditional two story home in Two Creeks is wonderfully personal. The young, active family knew when they purchased the home in the Spring of 2020 that the home would undergo significant changes to reflect their personal style. All aspects of the renovation, inside and out, were designed and guided by the homeowner, with the aid of Patrick Cleveland, with his father, Murray Cleveland, serving as general contractor. The most significant change was the design of the kitchen. What was a dark, cramped kitchen has become a beautifully expansive family gathering area. Walls and doors...
