Work in progress. Putting together an exhibition requires mathematical precision and good attitude. We are always thankful for all the hard work and effort of many people involved in our projects. Thanks to them the final results are astounding! Color scheme, wall finishes, carpeting, window treatment, and exhibition display by Eisemann Design.

After hours of work, the final result is all worth that effort:

My NCIDQ Certification, finally framed, found its place in my office.

From the concept renderings to the final presentation. One of my most interesting multidisciplinary projects that employed historic research, graphic design, exhibit design, and interior design.

Working with local Maryland artist Audrey Salkind. Selecting her beautiful abstract paintings for one of my clients.

Yes! This is it!

One of the projects I have been working on lately is an attic home office. My clients decided to renovate a decent size half-finished attic to use it as a shared office for her and him as well as a music lounge area. The photo below shows the attic before the renovation with a low ceiling and poor lighting. There was no insulation which made it impossible to use the area all year long. 

The attic has been completely gutted and insulated. Ceiling was elevated and covered with new drywall. Old carpeting was removed and existing hardwood floors refinished using a sophisticated dark stain. New energy efficient recessed lighting was installed along the ceiling together with a ceiling fan over the staircase. The staircase itself received a facelift to match the railings in the house and to meet safety requirements. Below are some photos of work in progress:

Free space behind the knee walls was used to build spacious storage units with stylish cabinet doors. All doors, trims and window casements were painted white. Walls and ceiling painted in light gray while both gable walls were treated as accent walls and painted in a darker shade of blue/gray.

Construction phase of the project is finished. Now on to the furnishing and accessorizing. We will be using mostly office furniture from IKEA, which is a great deal for the quality you get. I will keep you posted.

A conference room dedicated to women

Finally, I have some photos of my latest commercial project to share with you! I had the pleasure to work with the American Pharmacists Association in Washington DC on the Women in Pharmacy Conference Room. It is a special place at the APhA's beautiful headquarters in downtown DC dedicated to the women who significantly contributed to the profession of pharmacy in the USA.

Floral motive on the glass partition and the family tree is inspired by the cherry blossoms native to the Washington mall located just outside of the APhA headquarters by the Lincoln Memorial.

I tried to be sensitive to the contemporary design of the building and its green principles - I selected materials that are environmentally friendly and mostly made in America.

the colors of fall

Falling leaves made me think of one of my projects. Earthy saturated colors used here helped define individual spaces in an open floor plan apartment. Chartreuse in the foyer, atmospheric blue in the living space, and terracotta red in the hallway to a bedroom. Accents in warm yellow.
