Engaged to shed some light on a dark and dated master bath suite, we banished the cultured marble, raised the ceiling, and installed bright clerestory windows. We crowned custom bamboo cabinets with poured concrete counters, extended to the Jacuzzi tub surrounds, and finished the space with gleaming nickel hardware, a recycled glass shower enclosure, and tumbled marble floors with radiant heating, for year-round warmth. Our clients were so pleased, they asked us to redo their family room and kitchen – to create in them the same sense of elegance and serenity. Hardwood floors emphasized the comfortable, quiet spaciousness of a newly arranged room lay-out. Quartzite counters, quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, and a recycled glass tile backsplash combine to produce a sophisticated kitchen, all gleaming surfaces and clean lines, while rough split-faced travertine brick enriches a fireplace, bookended by built-in shelves and cabinetry, to make a strong – and practical – center in the family room.
What Others Say
I have used Michelle Moore from the Moore Design Group for several projects over the last few years. I am a returning client with the highest regard for Michelle’s knowledge, flair and professionalism. Michelle did the design for a bathroom remodel in a rental I own in the Berkeley flatlands. We developed the design together with Michelle speaking for a design that would remain in character with my Berkeley bungalow. Later I returned to Michelle for color advice on an exterior paint job in North Berkeley near Solano Avenue. Michelle was particularly helpful in showing me that the many small windows near the front door should be one color only despite a different scheme on the larger windows. The result is the envy of the neighborhood. Recently Michelle helped me bring together the wall and floor tile in a bathroom that had many beautiful parts but no coherent style. Only a designer of Michelle’s caliber has the skill to come in and address what could be a costly problem with color. I cannot recommend her highly enough you will be thrilled with the results.
