Mississippi Modern

On the banks of the Mississippi river, inside a stately Neoclassical building facade; our corporate kitchen remodel project creates the unexpected counterpoint. Handsome dark oak, sleek grey lacquer and a tough white quartz anchor the space. A circular flow around a generous island and Miele wine coolers storing sophisticated vintages meet the challenge.

Timeless Modern

This high end custom home was a designer's dream canvas. Throughout the spacious, light filled residence, our walnut Poliform cabinetry echoes the clean lines of the architecture and brings warm definition.

The upper level kitchen was designed with two islands, a wine bar, and a discreet pantry revealing a functional back up zone and smart office area. This comprehensive project also included a lower level entertainer's kitchen, bathrooms, closets, offices, and more; all in a cohesive palette of walnut, matte white lacquer, white quartz and stainless. Nathan Scott Photography.




West Des Moines Kitchen Reno

Hidden behind dark cherry cabinets, the best of this home's kitchen space was lost. We reimagined the space to open sight lines to the lush outdoors. A chef's kitchen was created with a large dual-sided island and integrated table, a tall grey oak wall with three convenient pantries and Miele appliances. Glossy white lacquer, white quartz, grey oak, glossy graphite lacquer and a striking honed marble slab complete the material palette. The grey oak finish continues into the dining area. Finishing touches include shiny blue steel dome and double elliptical LED chandeliers. Nathan Scott Photography.


Liberty Building Condo

When it was time for our long-term clients to make their move to downtown Des Moines, Projects' design team was charged to redesign the condo space with modern style, while at the same time addressing a need for storage and functionality. 

The open plan was conceived to allow the couple ample entertaining spaces with fluid circulation to both the living room and home office. Each area has sleek Poliform storage solutions for objects and our client's vast collections of design/architecture books. Projects' design team provided space planning, kitchen and wall system design, bathroom design, closet design, furniture, tile selection, lighting, artwork, flooring and fabric selections.

Penthouse Project

Luxury meets minimal in our Des Moines penthouse interior design project which was realized in August 2016. Gracious spaces were created with unobstructed views to the cityscape for entertaining along with sumptuous private spaces for restful retreat. Spectacular rug textures counter the sleek polished concrete floors and provide the base for the material's palette. Full length gray linen draperies soften/filter light and anchor the perimeter while the core of the residence is warmed with black elm. Photography by Assassi Productions.






High Rise Kitchen Transformation

Our delightful home owner charged us with the task to transform her ninety's-era dark, tight kitchen into a bright, functional and inviting space. Gratuituous angles were removed to restore flow and reveal space for a coveted island. Light wood grain ceramic tile was selected for it's warmth, beauty and durability. Nathan Scott Photography.



Walnut Woods

Past and present come together in the unique blending of Danish modern with new contemporary home furnishings.  The common thread is the respect for materials and timeless craftsmanship. The end result is an elegant and fresh interior design solution for our project in the woods. Nathan Scott Photography.
