Pop of Color

Navy plays a starring role in this stunning transformation (ahem...fireplace!). Pops of coral complete the look for a neutral space that is anything but boring. Beautiful photography by Jessica Delaney Photography. [gallery link="file"...

Starting from Scratch

The sweetest young professional couple invited me along for the ride of a major renovation. After much contemplation, a complete gut turned out to be the best move we made. The end result? A family-friendly livable environment, just perfect with room to grow....

Healthy=Beautiful

Here's to celebrating healthy moms-to-be and new moms! We're big fans of babies (ahem, Finn's Nautical Nursery) so we were tickled pink (and blue!) to envision and design a wellness center for Accelleron Maternal Health and Wellness. New moms and moms-to-be now have a...

Scrumptious!

Who says family-friendly can't be drool-worthy? This kitchen remodel project kept the kids (and dog!) in mind while remaining utterly stunning. We think you'll agree. Photography: Jessica Delaney Photography [gallery link="file"...

Rustic. Modern. We love it.

Here's what happens when you blend classic, modern lines with the beauty and warmth of nature: a one-of-a-kind retreat that feels like contemporary wrapped up in a cozy blanket. This private residence in Tyringham, MA was just a joy to work on. See what New England...

Tradition meets comfort.

Don’t let this traditional residence fool you. It’s wrapped up in the comfort you’d expect of a family home…with just a bit of an elegant twist.

Handcrafted Masterpieces.

Completely custom furniture gets it start in a gorgeous showroom. Masterpiece Woodworks Inc. in Avon, MA is a group of incredible artisans who handcraft custom furniture. But, their showroom and workshop felt more like a wood shop than a show stopper. From the office...

Bourque House Makeover

 

Great design starts at the curb

After years of patching and touch-ups on the exterior of our home, I (finally) made the plunge to re-paint. While it doesn’t sound quite as sexy as redesigning a new kitchen or bedroom, there were so many elements to the exterior that made this project feel more like an inspiration than a desperate necessity.

A designer’s dilemma: so many colors to choose from! For this project, I went with  gray horse (after a quick Facebook survey, of course!) I wanted something neutral but different from your standard “seacoast” gray.

 

 

The leading lady: Front Door Front door options

Talk about a statement piece. Your front door says a ton about your personal style. For me, sticking with a classic black allowed me to accessorize. Speaking of which…

Planters on porches. New house numbers. Showstopper wreath. These are definitely a few of my favorite things. Now that the fresh paint and trim were completed, I dove into design ideas. It always amazes me how much the little details matter to the overall design.

 

 

Bourque House Makeover Results

The results:
As an interior designer, I have high expectations and want the best possible quality for my clients (and my own home!).

To say I’m thrilled with the result is an understatement. Even designers need a reminder that a fresh coat of paint can totally transform your space. A huge thanks to CertaPro for their excellence in service and delivery. It was a process I put off for years and they made me wish I had done it sooner.
