Current Project: Design of Johnston Regional Airport


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.

Imagining your Project with Digital Renderings

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!

Current Project: Taking a Design from Concept to Reality

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.

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.

Current Projects: A New York City Couple Makes a Home in Raleigh


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.

Current Projects: Goodbye Formal Dining Room, Hello Playroom!

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?”

Current Projects: Babies, Bows, & Butterflies

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.

Brittany’s Top 5 Tips For a Kid Friendly Space

1. By all means, choose a playful color palette!

2. Choose practical textures- here we selected a hearty stonewashed  linen for the sectional and had the furniture treated with a stain resistant treatment immediately (make haste!) Pillow covers have zippers for easy laundering.

3. Embrace the slash. Carefully consider pieces that have more than one use or could eventually go into another room. In this space- take note of the orange settee that is nearly the size of twin size guest bed and can be covered in sheets at a moment’s notice? Or the Media unit which could be a  cool dining room console? Odds are- as your kids grow their needs/ your spatial needs will change, also.

4.Don’t be afraid to leave some floor space- because kid’s love to PLAY on the floor- so why invest in a coffee table that impedes playing with cars or has to be moved when it’s dance party time?

5. Add a personal touch. In the library framed family photos are displayed. While on the tv wall- my client made fun posters of every place their family has lived- unique to the space and special to the family- something you won’t find in the pottery barn kids catalog.
