HISTORIC TUCSON HOME
This Tucson, Arizona historic home was built in 1936, just blocks away from the Historic Arizona Inn. The home was in disrepair as a rental for many years and needed a complete overhaul. I collaborated with general contractor, Eric Touhey, owner of Touhey Custom Carpentry LLC. My inspiration for the home combines my love for natural elements, clean spaces, sunlight and travel. The great room features 16 ft ceilings lined with original Mt. Lemmon pine. The kitchen mimics slate with a custom-built dark cement countertop and farm sink. I went with brass hardware throughout the home to juxtapose the rich dark stain on the ceiling and doors and crisp white walls. I designed the drum lighting fixtures in the great room and the magnolia ceiling mount lights in the hallways. The original cement floor was polished and reborn. Overall, this home captures the essence of my aesthetic;
BLENMAN ELM PROPERTY
This unique property located in the lovely Blenman Elm Historic District, is the second unit behind the main house. The client purchased the property as an investment and living opportunity. I collaborated with the client to create an aesthetic that matched his lifestyle and history as a general contractor and carpenter. We went with white walls (a signature look of mine), minimal yet specifically curated decor, and a feel of cabin meets city. I designed and constructed/repurposed most of the furniture in the home along with the window treatments. We used pieces of which he already owned and transformed them into art, such as the antique woodworking bench which is hung on the wall in the living room. The lounge couch is made from reclaimed barn wood (of which he already owned). The client and owner remodeled the property. visit https://touheyscustomcarpentry.com/
This property is a great example of how we can pull from items we already own, and find new meaning and life in them.
