Our designers are masters at creating new spaces, but that doesn’t mean they can’t work with the old. In fact, you might say they have historically performed very well at older remodels.
This home was a magnificent historic home and carriage house. It was a full redesign, so our team measured the space and conceptualized several layouts that would work for the space. We paid close attention to the unique original components of the house, incorporating those into the new designs. The homeowners – who are nationally known landscape designers – are very talented designers with a strong sense of style and direction. We catered this space to their taste as well as their lifestyle, which involves entertaining for multiple events each week. These events are mostly for charity, and can range from eight to 150 people. While the space is designed for just two people’s taste, we’re proud to say it can work for anything they put it up against.
“The heart of the home is definitely the kitchen and Debra Hupman, in our opinion, knows how to create the best ones. Debra has designed 3 kitchens and 5 bathrooms for us over the past 15 years in 3 different houses. Although we are very involved in every detail, Debra steers us in the right direction and then "lets" us make the right decision; she is fantastic to work with! What we admire the most about her work is that everything is in keeping with the rest of the house and feels like it has always been there which is important to us, plus the ergonomics makes everything work beautifully. In fact, our kitchen at Botherum quickly became my "office", favorite spot for parties, the only place we eat and entertain and the Labrador hangout…and all of this happens in a small space which tells you how well designed the space is… Debra is the BEST!” - Dale Fisher.
