Our clients could have gone the expected design route and asked for the rooms in their formal Georgian Colonial to be filled with antiques. Instead, taking cue from the home's simple, strong geometric lines, we designed an eclectic and comfortable space using a timeless mix of antiques, modern furniture and lighting, and a soothing neutral color palette.

Our clients purchased the lakefront house and lot next to the home where they have lived for over 40 years. Working with Young & Young Architects, we razed the old house and added an 8,000 sq. ft. addition. Despite it's intimidating size and being filled with every possible luxury (including three kitchens, an elevator, home theater and an incredible master suite worthy of a king), our clients' main concern was that the end result not only be beautiful, but comfortable for their guests.
We've been working with this wonderful family for years. Several years ago, we completed a gut renovation of their kitchen. Recently, they decided to complete their adjoining family room. They wanted it to be flexible and function as a multi-purpose space which the whole family would enjoy together.
This was a total home renovation, which included a new kitchen, and master suite addition. We worked with von Staden Architects, and the goal was to update and orient this Bloomfield Village house to the garden. By recovering some of our clients existing furnishings in more modern fabrics and adding additional contemporary furniture and lighting pieces, the interior was refreshed, yet familiar--something that was important to our elderly clients who have loved this place for over forty years.
This home studio was a gut renovation. We raised the roof in the maids’ rooms above the garage. Layered materials, such as a reclaimed barn wood beam, brick , and walnut wood were carefully chosen to compliment the home's Colonial architecture, but still give a warm, modern feel. The large space is divided into different areas by strategically placed custom bookcases which define spaces while maintaining an "open" feel. We were able to fit a conference room, materials library, administrative area, bathroom, and a reading nook into 550 sq. feet!
This new construction home is situated in an upscale enclave. Our clients wanted the interiors to reflect his love of the Arts and Crafts style with her affinity for contemporary furniture. We were brought in at the very beginning of the building process, so we were able to make modifications to the developers “cookie-cutter” plan and employ many local artisans to create a one-of-a-kind residence.

This former industrial warehouse was transformed into Dunlap Design Group's former Birmingham studio. This space functioned not only as a place to work , but as a "design laboratory" to experiment and entertain clients.
Our client, a successful Financial Advisor, wanted his office to exude a feeling of sophistication, and yet be understated and comfortable in its elegance. Modern, masculine furnishings and bold artwork create an air of strength and confidence. Realizing not all business is conducted at a conference table, we divided the space into two distinct areas-- lounge and work for both formal and informal meetings. Photos by Chani Devers.
We are proud to have been named Henredon Interior Design Studio’s Featured Designer, and were asked to create a vignette. Our concept is as follows: We designed this space for a fictitious college professor living in a tiny New York apartment. Since the space is limited, it must be multipurpose and have plenty of storage for his books. He reads, watches TV, and hosts small dinner parties at his home. Bold, dark, and warm describes the Italian wallpaper which gives the little room much needed “punch.” The fabulous upholstered bookcases provide texture and architecture while the perforated stainless and glass cylinder adds sculpture and sparkle. The mesh drapery is a backdrop to the sphere-topped storage columns. The bright bookcases integrated around the sofa are a place for books and treasures found abroad. Central to the space, the harvest table is a very flexible piece: need a slim sofa table? Both sides fold down. Invite six to dinner? No problem! Here, it functions as a library table.
