Cape Cod Home Update
Alexis has been extremely helpful in updating our 1950’s cape cod style home. From giving the living room a face-lift to planning a basement finishing, she has provided her expert design advice and guided us toward our vision. I am absolutely thrilled with how our living room turned out and look forward to starting the basement project. I couldn’t have done it without her!
New Home Color Scheme
Alexis’ design experience and top notch interpersonal skills helped me choose the perfect color scheme for our new house, in spite of my lack of vision and indecisiveness. Alexis was accommodating to my schedule and came back multiple times when I decided I didn’t like any of the samples and wanted to start over. I’m so glad to have had Alexis by my side and recommend her to anyone looking for an update.
Kitchen Renovation Overhaul
After purchasing our forever home in 2016, the first renovation project we decided to tackle was our kitchen. Alexis helped the project pick up major speed as communications that I had previously been struggling to keep up with were all taken care of by Alexis in a very professional manner. We had multiple contractors working on our project, whom she managed the communications between to keep everyone aligned to the timeline and accountable for their deliverables throughout the project.
With her help, I could now understand all the pieces of what is involved in a kitchen renovation and confidently make the right decisions on not only the materials to use, but on the finishes and how they would play into the overall look of our kitchen. Alexis made sure that all decisions were aligned with our vision and our budget. The project went so smoothly that we even ended up finishing a few days early. We are so happy with the turnout of our new kitchen and cannot thank Alexis enough!
Interior Paint Color Selection
Alexis helped me pick out paint colors for the inside of my house. I was a bit overwhelmed, because the color would span most of our house and there were so many options. Alexis turned it into a much simpler process coming over with her color wheel and asking about our tastes and looking at our decor and furniture. She suggested two colors, one being a darker accent color.
Before I bought the paint, I got samples of both colors plus a few others I thought I’d try. The others had undertones that didn’t fit the look we wanted. Seeing the samples on the wall, Alexis was spot on. We chose the colors she recommended, and we continually get compliments on how well it flows throughout the house. The accent color is also a nice “pop” but not too dramatic, exactly what I wanted.
A Great Room Challenge
I worked with Alexis on a color consultation. My home has a 2-story great room, making it challenging for the amateur to decide on an appropriate color. She determined the best color for not only the great room, but also the attached dining room and living room. I love the color and without Alexis’s consultation, I might have ended up living in a crayon box. Instead, I have the colors I love that blend beautifully with a neutral great room color.
My husband and I were in the process of updating our fireplace when we enlisted Alexis’ design expertise. We already had the dated red brick painted white and the brass firebox painted black, but we were struggling with choosing the perfect mantel. Alexis made this overwhelming process feel so easy! After seeing the fireplace, she helped me figure out what the proper dimensions and wood species should be for the mantel and coordinated the communications between me and the general contractor. Without Alexis’ involvement, I would still be looking for a mantel. She has the expertise that we needed in order to get the job done. We are thrilled with the end result and will definitely be using her for future projects!
