This is the house that got Emily's design career started. Purchasing the home from spec. builders when it was just framed, Emily made every architectural design decision to create this beautiful Arts & Crafts Phinney Ridge replica. Emily selected the windows and doors, designed the trim carpentry, chose all of the paint and stain colors and architectural finishes--including flooring, tile, cabinetry, countertops, light fixtures--and selected all bathroom fixtures.
Being her own home, this project also gives a sense of her overall interior design talent in terms of the furnishings, art, window coverings, and space planning. Imagine that this was a blank slate except for the architectural framing, and Emily was able to select and choose every detail. Period elements such as a board and batten wainscot with plate rail in the dining room, beadboard wainscot and hexagonal tile floor in a bathroom with a pedestal sink and clawfoot tub on the first floor, and space efficient kitchen banquette to make the most of the great room at the rear of the house. This home was featured on the Phinney Home Tour and was used for numerous magazine and commercial shoots.
Emily also had the vision for the landscaping and created a fabulous hardscaped patio in the backyard adjoining the kitchen by a deck in the true spirit of craftsman architecture, marrying the interior and exterior spaces.
