AT_play - IT'S ALL ABOUT THE VIEWS ON THIS ONE by Annabelle Guldner

AT_play - MOUNTAIN VIEW HOME
We are in design development stage on this single family home on a gorgeous lot with views of the entire pike's peak mountain range... That called for a special design where every space in the house gets a piece of the cake! With rounded walls that continue to the exterior and draw the outside in and large windows with flush sills the views are maximized and astounding! We are experimenting with different exterior materials at the moment to complement the interior feel and neighborhood of the new home. So excited to see this come to life!

Interior styling and vignettes by Annabelle Guldner

me_AT_play - Interior styling and vignetting
It's important to create vignettes throughout your home. They are a collection of elements that together create a harmonious picture within a room or an area. The trick is to play around with them, take a picture to look at it and reduce as much as you can. Simplicity is your friend and the fewer you use to create the atmosphere you want, the more powerful the effect. I love that part of the interior design process, the icing on the cake that brings everything together. 
This step is especially essential when in a rental where the floor plan isn't right and the flow just doesn't work. It's amazing how effective and impactful styling can be! However, it is easier said than done, takes a good eye, practice and knowledge of the principles of design. 
Fact is, if you are stuck in a home you don't like, there is a way to transform it without any construction mess and with what you have. To me that's one of the perks and exciting things about design; you work with what you have to create something beautiful, functional and tailored.

bath_play ALL IN MARBLE by Annabelle Guldner

THE MARBLE BATH

ath_play
This bathroom was a total remodel from the original layout. The client asked for a marble oasis with a large wet space that includes the shower and tub area. The wet space features large marble tiles on the ceiling with recessed lighting. The tiles were laid in a stacked pattern with a minimum grout lines to give a clean and contemporary look that focuses on contunuous lines to give a seamless space. The space feels open and flows well due to a large floor to ceiling glass panel separating the wet space from bathroom and it virtually disappears. We designed the vanity for maximum storage that ties in with the contemporary lines and color palette. The large and deep drawers that are fabricated around the plumbing offer linen space and a high volume of toiletries. There are no windows in this space so the white of the marble and the cool and light color palette helps to brighten and uplift the space.

Can't get enough of those stairs!  Check out these cool stair design ideas.
Even in a home they don’t just have to be a boring element that allows you to move up and down. Stairs can be so much more than that!
Rather than just a means for circulation stairs can be a focul point in a space and can serve different purposes like storage, hiding place, shelving and seating, work space. Embedded with these different functions it becomes an intentional sculptural volume that contributes to the overall feel and design of a home. Snap out of the ordinary and be playful!

A few revisions to the southern home which now features under the house parking! Being high off the ground the wooden vents were enlarged to keep the proportion of the home. We love the new curved stair and interior floor plan revisions that enhances the family's way of living. Excited to see it go up!

This innovative entertainment center is made from old camphor slabs, reclaimed from an abandoned tabacco farm in GA. We designed and built this for a renovation project in Savannah. The new owners of the house loved it so much they wanted it to stay... we were sad to let it go! All electronics are hidden from view yet accessible and flexibly stored. HDMI and other outputs are cleverly hidden within a cavity on the side if need-be. This design was built in 4 parts to allow for easy transportation and installation. In this case it spans to 11' ceilings, anchoring the space and becoming a beautiful sculptural element. It definitely is a conversation piece!
