|Interior Design | Texas Modern
This project is on-going, like most home renovations where the owner continues to reside on-site; but this picture set shows the progress to date. Check back periodically for more photos of both before and after, contractor information, and venders.
See how the dated kitchen is transformed into a modern showpiece using eco-friendly products and efficient space planning.
Custom improvements were made to increase the owner's personal enjoyment of the home as well; these creative changes increased storage, greatly improved foot traffic patterns while improving the flow of this home.
So far, the appraised value of this home has shown an increase in value of approximately 60%; a return on investment of close to $50,000 in two years.
In this case it's the X-factor; the owner wanted a place for her family and dogs to enjoy. The before pics show the challenge the kitchen presented and the results reveal the difference.
The qualitative value of the increased enjoyment is the true payoff on this investment!

Gold Gals Project: Site Location/Interior Design
Recently, I had the opportunity to assist the wonderful ladies of Gold Gals with their expansion into the Austin market. After extensive market research, including demographic, density, and growth modeling; a northwest location and a central site were chose to maximize exposure and accessibility while limiting costs and liabilities. Additionally, I was allowed to design and decorate the stores. The fabulous owners, Shan & Jinn, awarded me creative freedom and I thank them for that and the opportunity!
Above is an example of the finished product at Hyde Park; it sharply contrasts with the motif generated for the North Brooke location (183 @ McNeil).
Go visit the Gold Gals to see more and view the recycled art I made from the many examples of non-valuable items that were not precious enough for the meltdown process. Don't forget to take your gold, silver, and platinum cast-offs with you; their generosity is apparent in their payouts as well!

JustENVISION Reviews presents: The Austonian: Views from above.
After my visit prior to the grand opening, I produced a short pictorial containing some of the amazing views from the new Austonian tower in downtown Austin. The General Manager awarded me a rare treat; a sneak peak at the communal fitness center on the 56th floor. The views from this vantage point offers the Austonian's residents additional incentive to visit the gym.
|Personal historic renovation project...
This has been a great project so far. I can say that now that I am well over 80% finished. It is the oldest home within the Copperas Cove city limits . When I bought this old farmhouse; it had been sitting empty and was in disrepair to say the least.
Now, after six years and a lot of work it is now worth over double what I bought it for and is more than paying for itself.
Preserving this unique and historic home has been a rewarding educational experience; one that I do not recommend for everyone.
