BEFORE:  Original fireplace, with contemporary tile decoration and gold-trim insert.



AFTER:  Custom, built-in shelving in a dark stain coupled with Ann Sacks Scottish-inspired tile transforms the fireplace.


Custom frame moulding gives the French-inspired Master Bedroom architectural character.


Custom-made pillows in blue and cream checks, stripes and toile create a pretty bed ensemble, and nicely complements the toile wallcovering.
