New River Taphouse, a restaurant in Virginia Beach, recently opened off Pleasure House Road. The interior and exterior both have been completely transformed.


Hampton Center Apartments, a multi-family housing community in Hampton underwent a major renovation to its clubhouse and leasing center in early 2017.

The Virginia Company, a restaurant right off the James River Bridge in Carrollton, underwent a MASSIVE interior overhaul…and what’s best is that the food rivals the gorgeous interior!!


Hearth, a restaurant at the oceanfront in Virginia Beach, was one of the most miraculous before and after transformations.  I can’t even begin to describe the before–you’re going to have to head over to the blog and see for yourself!


Adele Diamond is a luxury jewelry store located in the Hilltop section of Virginia Beach.


Unify Health & Fitness is a unique studio located in Virginia Beach offering personal training, nutrition, and massage.

Fruitive , an organic juice bar in Virginia Beach, was a project where we took every effort to reduce the environmental impact of our design.  Fruitive is one of the only Green Restaurant Certified restaurants in Virginia.

Wasserhund Brewing Company is a new restaurant and brewery in the Hilltop section of Virginia Beach.  Their laid back atmosphere coupled with amazing food and innovative home-brewed German beer is a combination hard to beat!!


900 Acqua is an active adults apartment complex in Virginia Beach.  I started with the interior design from the construction documents phase, completed the specification documents, ordered all of the furniture (some of which was custom), shopped for every accessory, and then put it all together once construction was finished.


Donald L. Blount and Associates, a naval architecture and marine engineering firm, was my first place of employment after graduating from Virginia Tech.  When we needed to upgrade our office space, they allowed me to take on the entire project.  This 10,000 square foot office space was my very first interior design project!

Falcon Creek is an apartment complex in Hampton that hired me to re-design their clubhouse and model units to appeal to their target demographic.

Harper Dental Care, in Poquoson, was long overdue for an update.  The design changes made the space seem like an entirely new building…and we can’t wait for them to add on in a few years!!


Pure Barre is a fitness studio in Virginia Beach that focuses on pilates and ballet type exercises.  As a fitness instructor (my side job for the past 6 years), this interior design job was right up my alley.

Harbor Breeze is another apartment complex, this time in Suffolk.  They hired me to completely gut and re-design the interior of their clubhouse and refresh two of their model units.



This Poquoson home needed an update.  We took it from dark and dated to light and lovable! ;)

This Chesapeake home has gotten the complete update-while living in it…WITH a toddler. Fun!!


In this Chesapeake home, we tore down walls, refinished/painted every surface, purchased new fixtures and furniture….essentially a complete overhaul!
