Natural light overflows into this funky restaurant where high ceilings intersect with a bright open floorplan. Adding a punch of orange to the walls accentuates the height creating an abundance of space. Decorating with repurposed tables and custom art pieces makes for an eclectic feel. And an inviting refinished bar top patiently waits to welcome hungry patrons.
Custom Kitchen Renovation
North Kingstown, RI
Cool and classic, this coastal inspired kitchen features a clean, bright design. Installing two-toned cabinets helped accentuate the granite countertops and large island. The geometric backsplash was created by incorporating glass tiles in a similar color palette, while custom window treatments were made to complement the overall design of the room. Since functionality was important, we reclaimed unused space above the microwave, keeping workspaces clear, and providing the weekend chef ample space to create culinary masterpieces.
Only the existing wood floors were left when creating this Parisian-style café. You’ll forget you’re not in France when you see the custom-designed counter showcasing sweet treats, lit by hanging crystal globes and vintage wall sconces. Customers can dine on their delicacies alongside a painted mural of the Eiffel Tower. Lime green walls with black and white accents create contrast to the original flooring. Since this popular shop is always overflowing with customers, we included a built-in bench to create more seating and make for a warm and inviting space.
Needing to redesign the layout, we created a spa-like setting with an industrial flare. Bright blue walls complement the warm wood plank floors and Edison lighting. A recycled finish along with modern glass tile accents work in harmony presenting a room that is clean and open, while remaining environmentally friendly.

A color palette in different shades of white and beige are used to widen the space
and create depth in this cozy shop. Rustic plank floors along with warm brown accents, black chairs and fixtures serve
to create contrast and character. The eye instantly goes to the main counter
which was created to accommodate the ordering of mouthwatering delicacies and provide functionality where business transactions occur.
Waterscape colors beckon the sea in this beachy renovation. Shades of white contrast the warm wicker furniture creating a calming contrast. Seafoam accents above the bright fireplace showcase the centerpiece of this design, and pops of orange and aqua create images of sunset walks along the ocean.
Project: Rogers Family Restaurant
A twist to the traditional diner, we updated the space with light flooring to create contrast against the dark wood tables and coffee-colored seating. Modern lighting and chrome accents were used throughout the design to brighten up the room along with fun pops of red along the booth area and prep station. Of course no diner would be complete without a countertop, which we updated in granite, along with ample stool seating to accommodate the crowds coming in for a quick bite.
