A well-designed space should be cohesive and
thoughtful, never overwhelming. Like an unfolding flower, it should reveal itself in stages-timeless
enough to never become outdated, yet contemporary and at the forefront of current trends to keep the space
fresh and alive. Design should never be boring or staid.

In this master bathroom, Kae designed this vanity using mixed textures to add interest. While the vanity frame is painted white, the doors are finished to look like a sophisticated version of old barn wood.
This is a closeup photo of the countertop and shiplap wainscotting that line the walls. This combination of textures not only adds interest to the space, it also frames the vanity and defines it as a strong focal point.
This space originally held a huge antiquated spa tub on a raised platform. Its location made it hard to access the tub. By removing the platform and tub and adding a new free-standing tub backed by shiplap wainscotting, not only was the room transformed design-wise but it increased the overall space within the room. .
The original designed fireplace and bookshelves combination is part of a major remodel.
