The new Johnston County Airport Terminal puts Smithfield on the map for more than just air travel; with first class conferencing facilities and a business development office, it serves as a hub for corporate development for the surrounding areas.
We were involved with the design of this new terminal from the ground up. Our interiors accent the soaring ceilings with unique light fixtures and architectural details that embody the excitement of flight. Sophisticated patterns and materials lend an upscale, cosmopolitan look the client was hoping for, while keeping the spaces inviting. A large fireplace graces the waiting area, which has become a cozy meeting place for members of the aviation community. (For more pictures click here.)

Rob recently, completed a serene office environment designed for an executive, combining modern lines with richly textured surfaces.
The guest chairs (above) are upholstered in a luxurious cut geometric velvet.
Quartz leger stone on the back wall gives a rough texture, casting subtle shadows that give the room dimension.
Perforated metal on the desk and industrial-chic exposed steel beams add to the urban feel of the space.
When True Flavors Diner asked us to design the interior of their new restaurant in Durham, we were excited to make their dream become reality. But we wanted to get their customers excited even BEFORE they were open for business. The solution? We created some awesome renderings of the space, showing every aspect of the design.
We think renderings are a great design tool, and we are proud to offer this capability to all of our clients. Whether you are imagining your new home, or need to promote your business to clients, we can give you the tools to make it happen.
The only problem is, now we can’t wait to see the real thing!

Our biggest challenge was how to put a fish tank in a living room and make it “fit in.” Judy created this multi-functional display and fish tank cabinet to meet the clients NYC lounge vibe. We took what could have been a standard cabinet and made it truly unique. We added a vibrant coral color, dim-able LED lights, ventilation and water-proof materials to sustain the wear and tear of the fish tank.
Below is a sample of our rendering capabilities and what we are able to do during the creative process.
Eidolon Designs captured these amazing photographs of the millwork and building process.
After several design iterations with our client, Judy, and Eidolon Designs, the concept became a reality.

Who says a commercial space has to look like one? In this recent project, we helped our client feel at home in his new workspace.
When our client wanted an inviting place to put patients at ease, Rob jumped at the opportunity to design Cary Endodontics from the ground up. Rob drew on his background in architecture to create a modern space incorporating various custom details and architectural features. The result is a spa-like atmosphere that makes the experience of visiting the doctor truly enjoyable.
The design aesthetic extends to the exterior with custom typography and a sophisticated palette.
A custom desk greets the patients as they check-in for their appointment.
A modern gas fireplace anchors the waiting area.
The exam rooms are adorned with natural walnut thresholds.
In this office design, even the secondary spaces are given an exceptional level of detail.
No matter where you work, great design can make you feel at home.

Judy first met our young urban clients up in New York City two years ago while she happened to be in town for the Business of Design Conference. Having decided to relocate from the city to the Triangle, this house had to have a perfect blend of metropolitan glam with a splash of rustic charm.
In the Sitting Room (pictured above), our clients can entertain friends and family or relax with a glass of wine and a good book.
We love the pop of coral against the neutrals.
We partnered with Eidolon Designs to create a custom built Chinois inspired fish tank cabinet. Special lighting features the aquatic inhabitants and our client’s personal mementos.
A Romo fretwork wallpaper greets you in the two story foyer. We absolutely love all the light that illuminates the space.
The Living Room incorporates natural elements and luxe textures for a comfortable retreat.
Below is the Hearth Room, located off the Kitchen. It’s just the spot to cozy up with a cup of joe in front of the fireplace.
Our clients recently welcomed their daughter in April. Her nursery is adorned in purples and greens, the perfect environment to nurture a little one.
Having the flexibility to work from home, an organized office is just the ticket. The Arteriors Caviar Pendant is a fun focal point when entering the room.
Who would have thought a quick meeting for drinks in NYC would culminate into these beautiful spaces for their family to cherish.

You’ve probably spent the last few weeks pulling out your Christmas ornaments, holiday pillows, and trimmings. Let us show you several of our favorite ideas you can incorporate for a new look!
First, consider a new color scheme! Embrace the colors you have in your home and use them in your decorations for a custom holiday look that’s perfect for your space.
One of my favorite ideas for a unique, DIY Christmas tree is to create one using green painters tape. It’s perfect for small spaces, kid’s rooms, and more! I paired it with a felt ball garland, but you could hang paper snowflakes as ornaments or decorate it with Christmas bows!
Using oversized gift tags, I glued black and white family photos from winters past for a display that brings back so many fond memories.
Ornaments are available in so many fun colors and an easy way to pull your decor together. Place them in the bottom of a lantern for an unexpected pop! As shown in the photo on the left, you can use existing frames to add to the holiday cheer. I found these free printable graphics on Pinterest.
Whatever you do, have fun and don’t be afraid to experiment! I designed this for the current issue of Cary Magazine. Pick up a copy today or check out the feature online here.
When a favorite client told me that she wanted to convert her formal dining room at the entrance of her house into a playroom space that her three children could enjoy, I had my doubts. Of course, I subscribe to the belief that you should live in every room in your house, but I had my concerns about the potential mess being right near the front door.
I should always trust a mother’s intuition. I love the end result of this space we designed and that our client is only a glance away from her kids at play. We kept the draperies and wall sconces but said goodbye to the other formal dining room furnishings. I designed a custom cabinet for plenty of toy storage and a place for the tv to live. The finish on the cabinet is a sophicated black and the wall color changed from a deep red to turquoise.
This room provides versatility as the play table from Restoration Hardware can be wheeled out of the room and the room can host a dinner party or bookclub gathering for adults. The Souk Rug from West Elm brings a luxourious texture for little bare feet and imaginative play.
I’m obsessed with the constellation print from Minted in an oversized scale. This project begs the question: “what room are you not really using in your house?”

When my clients went to Italy on their Honeymoon, they spotted this Murano glass chandielier and had to have it for their future daughter’s nursery. Two sons and 7 years later that dream came true.
Color inspiration came from the feminine Vervain printed linen fabric featuring butterflies and flowers which we used to create blackout traversing drapery panels. The wall color is a beautiful peach hue – ICI Sun Kiss – rather than a traditional pale pink. We painted the exisiting crib antique white. The rocker (featured in a previous nursery blog post) got a girlish makeover with a new washable canvas slipcover from Four Seasons Furniture. This room is a perfect mixture of glam (i.e. the black accents) and sweetness. My favorite element is the Euro Sham to dress the crib from Caitlin Wilson Textiles. Enjoy a few captures of the space.
