AT_play - FEATURES THAT MAKE A SPACE by Annabelle Guldner

We tested out the bike rack and installed the light that finally came in. Today we are installing the window foil on the glass in the front door. In two weeks the stencil template is in and the last feature will be applied. We are so excited to take pictures and get working on the upstairs apartments!

AT_play - STAIR ART by Annabelle Guldner

Our foyer is getting some icing on the cake... We are excited to move forward with the stencil design that is original to the home on the fireplace mantle. After creating a copy of the design we are now getting the template made to apply the stencil to the risers of the stairs. Here is a photoshopped picture of what it will look like! We are excited to see it in reality!

Here is the final update before we add the decorative elements and take our showcase pictures. The time lapse video is in production and will give you an idea of what this renovation entailed. We are so excited to get the opportunity to transform the upstairs apartments as well!

Colorado Springs Renovation

Before and after sneak peek of our Foyer Remodel in Colorado Springs

Our transformation almost concluded. Enjoy this little before and after teaser, as we add the finishing touches to the space. We are working on designing a stencil for the risers, waiting on some window foil and a light fixture and polishing up the bike rack design! You can already see the dramatic transformation we were able to achieve. And that’s what we do. We tailor spaces, to make them unique, functional and meaningful no matter how small. We are the tailor of your home.

bath_play ALL IN MARBLE by Annabelle Guldner

Have a look at these bathrooms with marble finishes from top to bottom. It is a classic and elegant look with timeless qualities that keep people drawn to it. The question is how functional is it, especially in bathrooms and kitchens? Natural stone is always harder to keep clean and to maintain than engineered products, so think twice before taking your red wine glass into the bathroom and putting it down next to the bath tub (which let's admit it; we want to do, especially when you have a grand tub to enjoy!) Also for honed and polished marbles which are very common, slippery surfaces can be dangerous.

With the abundance of great porcelain tiles out there mimicking the marble and giving you the natural stone look and finish without the maintenance issues is something to think about. Cost can go into either direction, so it depends on the specific selections. 
The atmosphere in these two bathrooms is hard to beat, one has a very traditional feel with a upscale and grand atmosphere when you walk in, whereas the other maintains the elegance but is more eclectic with clean lines and contemporary touches. Question remains: is it worth to have the marble headaches for its desired atmosphere?
