Emily has worked on numerous kitchen remodels and has personal experience with her own homes on how to make the most of your budget. She always begins with you budget to be realistic with what you can afford and do. If you are looking to gut your kitchen and start over, she can provide CAD drawings of your space to get you started, or she may simply suggest it needs paint and architectural finishes to make the most of the cabinet layout you already have. She can make your design aesthetic and desire come to life. Designing your kitchen is about what feels and looks like home to you, not her. She will spend lots of time asking you about how you use your kitchen and does not make assumptions that everyone is the same with how they use it. The kitchen is truly the heart of the home, and as the mother of three, Emily knows how crucial it is to not only look good, but function well too. With over a decade of design experience, she can also coach you on which finishes will wear best for the long haul. Being sure that your kitchen flows well with the rest of your home is also a priority for Emily, so including a new color design for the entire home may be of the most benefit. If the rest of the home feels complete, Emily knows how to make the kitchen feel like an extension of that. She always begins with right where you are!

This spec. home constructed in the late '90's was ready for a major update of finishes and spaces. The existing kitchen and family room were opened up to create a great room, with island, addition of a bay window and window seat to take advantage of Puget Sound views to the west, and a home office. An existing gas fireplace was removed and the gas line was taken advantage of for a new gas range.

A true Seattle Craftsman with original dark stained fir finish carpentry. When I first worked with this family nearly five years ago, we created a color design for all of the communal areas of the home, except the kitchen. They knew they would be remodeling the kitchen at some point in the future. With lovely furnishings that fit the period and aesthetic of the home, establishing a palette was easy.

Four years later and after helping with the exterior and their home on Orcas Island, I was asked to design their kitchen! Truly a dream project. The new kitchen countertops provided the foundation for the expansion of the home's palette. Creating a much lighter aesthetic was the goal, which is where my ability to find the right balance really came into play. I knew having some of the very dark wood elements would be important to connect the new kitchen and sunroom to the rest of the house. Staining the window sashes only, the interior of the glass-front cabinets, bookcases and bench in sunroom, and floating shelves in baking center provided the connection to the rest of the home, while the painted cabinets and woodwork provided the light freshness they were after to the flow with the countertops.

I was responsible for the custom cabinet design (layout, function, and aesthetic) and coordination and selection of all hard surfaces and color.
