Thank you once again My Domaine for featuring my most recent work. This time it’s Phase 1 of our Laurelhurst project, front and center on their freshly updated site.

The original brick Tudor-style home, built in the early 1900s, is now proudly showcasing our work with a new expanded kitchen and dining room, a charming entry vestibule, colorful powder room, and a living room equipped with a custom designed library. For the article in full, please click HERE.

“Every last inch of the house required using,” Hackworth says, but she wanted it to feel spacious. To that end, she focused on creating “clean lines, streamlined pathways, and usable storage.” Functionally, the kitchen and dining room needed to suit “a family of five while cooking a meal, doing homework, playing a game, or all of the above simultaneously!”

“I paid careful attention to incorporate timeless elements of the past: inset drawers and doors with brushed brass details, Calacatta marble, and butcher-block surfaces, for example,” she explains. For added interested, she custom-designed a bar cabinet that “feels somewhat like a family heirloom,” thanks to its architectural details and warm espresso stain.

When asked what her greatest find for the house was, Hackworth tells us, “In all honesty, I can’t pull out one specific thing. Every little piece plays off one another.” We have to agree. — My Domaine
