Q: Tell us a little about your background.
A: The process of becoming a designer was a winding road that I never anticipated happening. I was recruited at a Christmas party at 20 years old by a very successful contractor and from the moment I said yes I never looked back. My career started as a sales manager and showroom director where I began to develop a passion for rethinking the home and bringing new life to old spaces. My heart has always been to help people and design/remodeling became the medium to which I could foster a better connection with people. After having my son in 2018 I decided it was time to take my career in my own direction and founded Splendid Home Design.
Q: What style do you like to design the most?
A: Coastal farmhouse and modern farmhouse.
Q: What projects are you most proud of? Tell us about the pictures below.
SANCTUARY MASTER – FEATURED: POMPEII QUARTZ CONCRETO HONED
When our client came to us looking to give their dated bathroom a fresh new soul and spirit, we could not wait to get started!
We gave this space a new meaning while keeping a similar footprint. This existing bathroom was transformed into a luxurious zen experience by bringing in modern design elements such as a cement looking porcelain tile and honed quartz countertops. Soft touches with warm stained knotty alder cabinetry and faux wood tiles in the shower create a grounding spa experience.
We love the industrial and rustic, yet organic styles that are present here and flow together in this one-of-a-kind master bathroom.
MOODY MANOR – FEATURED: POMPEII QUARTZ BRUSHED PURE WHITE
The cabana bathroom featured extensive updates to bring a big pop of personality with hand-painted moroccan fish scale tiles, custom floating vanity, and nautical accents.
MODERN FARMHOUSE MASTER – FEATURED: POMPEII QUARTZ MISTERIO
Most often we are asked to renovate old, outdated spaces. For these homeowners, their existing master bathroom just lacked their personality! We brightened up the space by installing oversized white subway tile up the walls, made way for a large soaking tub and installed this fun colorful encaustic tile throughout. The custom navy vanity features a large trough sink, clean white quartz and wall mounted faucets. Before, your eyes stopped at the dark shower tile. Now we have a greater appreciation for the ceiling height with new floor to ceiling shiplap.
