Granite Bay Master Bathroom…The Project that Grew…

BEFORE – Bathing in the 80’s

AFTER – Stunning new free standing tub is a design feature!

        A simple desire to replace an existing bathtub grew into a master bathroom remodel that has delighted one of my clients and given her a whole new room! Although not yet complete, these remodel photos show the dramatic differences already apparent in this work-in-progress.    The beginning…

BEFORE – Old shower is outdated and feels claustrophobic

AFTER – New shower feels spacious and luxurious!

By selecting a freestanding tub and freeing the space originally filled in around a sunken tub, we opened up this corner of the bathroom. Removing the plantation shutters to let the view of the outdoor garden and natural light flood in has also lightened and enlarged the space.  The middle… In the separate shower area, we also opened things up by cutting out a large section of the exterior wall and replacing a small octagonal window with a larger, oval one. Voila!   Stay tuned for upcoming photos of the finished project!

Spa-Like Setting for Dental Health Care

  Have you ever wanted to be part of a project because you were so inspired by the concept?   I was totally on board with East Sac Dental when they approached me with the following design request:  contemporary, urban, and eco-friendly!

Patient Waiting Area

 The result…

Natural elements soothe your dental treatments in this contemporary urban environment.  The dentists built their new offices in a one-story corner building in an East Sacramento neighborhood.  Large expanses of glass connect the clients to the shady, tree-lined street outside while the sound of an interior waterfall welcomes you into the treatment rooms.   


Patients rave about the new space, noting it “feels like a spa.”  The color palette flows through multiple shades of green to compliment the “natural” theme throughout.  Patients attest the various layers of green are both calming and soothing, and we think it softens the sterile equipment in the office.  There’s even a “tree-trunk” coat rack for fun and inspiration!  

Waterfall Entrance to Treatment Rooms

The contemporary design supports the underlying fact that this office has all the modern, state-of-the-art equipment and techniques in use here… layers of messages that keep reinforcing the themes.  

Treatment Room

East Sac Dental (offices of Paul Phillips, DDS, and Barry Dunn, DDS) moved five months ago to new digs at 1273 32nd St. in Sacramento.The interior was designed by StoneWood Design with input from the East Sac Dental staff.  Space planning was done by Olson Construction.  Lumens Light & Living provided the lighting.  Photography by Dave Adams.
