And to round out our highlights from the past year of blogging, here are some of the entries we picked to share again from the last six months of the year…

For July we shared a blog about a cabin remodel on Clearwater Lake that we designed. The project included a new mudroom addition, re-designed kitchen with custom cabinetry, and handmade tile.  It turned out to be a great place to spend the warm and sunny summer days and nights!

In August, one of our entries highlighted different projects we worked on with different color schemes.  There is one for every color of the rainbow.  Revisit the blog for inspiration for your own home.

Cambria came out with new colors this year and in September, we highlighted the new Waterstone Collection. This new collection was the most buzzed about yet – the colors and patterns are so pretty and innovative!

In October we shared an article and video from ABC that talked all about a project in Montana where EVERYTHING going into building the house was made in the USA. The interview is interesting and comes with some eye-opening facts.

During November, we polled our readers to see what color was their favorite and orange won. In this blog entry we posted products that we love in orange… what fun!

In December, we shared pictures and drawings of a master bathroom project we worked on in Edina. With its cozy heated marble floors, shiny Kohler fixtures, and fresh paint, this bathroom is definitely work checking out.

A couple of blog entries ago, we shared a sketch for custom Kravet bench upholstery and  pillow fabrics… here is the follow-up “After” picture with a snap of what the space looked like before we started any work.

Sketch for custom bench and pillows

In this project on Clearwater Lake, we designed custom cabinetry with a dark espresso stain to contrast with the cedar plank walls that are in the rest of the cabin. Once we took the brick out (seen in the before image), we carried that planking through the kitchen to create a cohesive look. 

The tile was handmade for our project and sourced at Rubble Tile. We selected pretty tones of blues, greens, and dark blue/ almost black.

After: custom cabinetry, bench, and tile

 

In the ‘Before’ picture (below) you can see that we took out the two windows on the side and added one in the middle. (Where the fireplace was, the bench is now in the ‘after’.)  By taking out the corner window, we were able to get in a concierge station for the phone, phone books, TV, and kids craft supplies.

After: custom bench and tile detail.

 
 The project is coming to a close, we have a couple small details to take care of yet… as those finish up, stay tuned for pictures of the fully completed project!
 
cheers.
 

Stay tuned for finished pictures from our current cabin remodel up on Clearwater Lake! We’re just putting together the final touches…

Here’s a sneak peak at the kitchen bench that we designed to fit seamlessly in with the cabinetry, along with the fabric pillow selections…

When choosing these fabrics from Kravet, we kept the scale of the three fabrics in mind so they would all jive together.

Because they are all at different scales (one is a large scale pattern, one is a medium stripe, and one is a small pattern) they all work and create a cohesive look.

Check back in a few weeks for finished pictures from this project!
