Hey all, this is Cassity, I am writing a bit of an intro to this post because I am really excited about this post I requested. Some of you may know that I got my degree in Interior Design. While in school I had the pleasure of meeting some great friends, who also happen to be designers – really great designers!! Recently, I received a note from a friend who had just started a design blog for his interior design business.
His name is Nate Fischer, and he is not only a great interior designer (see the post below!!) but he is a fabulous artist – check out his website. My husband and I had the pleasure of getting to know he and his wife in college. They were remodeling an old house too – so we were meant to be friends. I was going to try and find some old humiliating pictures from our Halloween parties, but I will spare you all.
He is trying to build up his blog, which has some great informative design posts- so worth becoming a follower. In order to grow, he is having a giveaway for one of his original pieces of art, (that let’s be honest I. want. A. LOT!) I will give you a sneak peek (below) all you have to do is become a follower and possibly leave a comment for him on this post.

This post goes through the before and after process of a full project, and includes a little peek into the design that goes into the details. Rather than bore you with all the technical drawings, I have included a couple of the key items, to give a little peek into what I do exactly. For anyone reading, that happens to be “in the biz” I will do some product name dropping as well.
The project was a home in south Orange County, for a large and involved family. They were ready for some change, and so I helped bring a fresh and light feel to the house.
The solution: Some paneling and matching hardwired sconces. At first I was a little leery to suggest the 3rd option; floor to ceiling paneling, but once installed it was obviously 100% the best choice of the three.
The finished project: Cabinet doors match the dining room paneling style, and viceversa. Clear glass cabinet pulls are topped with a pair of celadon jars from Tozai Home. You can’t see it too well in this photo, but after a lot of time spent looking at backsplash tile, we went with a ribbed Barbara Barry subway tile from Ann Sacks. My client had the idea for the cupboard on the island, to actually be a roll-out butcher block, with storage below (which it is, but you just cant tell.)
