Episode 02 - The Mid Century Modestly Priced House

December 6, 2016



The Morgan family had been through a lot with the recent adoption of their two little girls. I love their story so much that I couldn’t wait to get started with the home they chose and take the stress and worry of renovating right off of their shoulders.

The original style of the Morgan’s house had a modern flair to it, but their personal style was more ranch than modern. I was excited to implement this unique combination of clean lines, iron accents, and wood elements to design a modern ranch for this sweet family to enjoy.



Objective: Combine the kitchen and dining rooms to conserve space.


Objective: Create a practical living space for the Morgan family to gather and spend time together. Add a small office nook for kids to study and use the family computer.


Objective: Surprise the Morgans by finishing out their kids’ rooms.

Q. How has this experience affected your day to day life?

A. Just living in the home, we feel like every morning we wake up in a vacation cabin. It feels refreshing, like a sweet gift.

Q. Do the kids have a favorite part about their rooms? If so, what?

A. Yes, our son loves his built in desk and the loft bed. He goes in there for homework and loves to sit up on the loft and read. He’s really enjoyed his room. As for the girls, they love their beds. It was designed to be like a doll house, so they like to play tea parties and I think it makes them feel like princesses.

Q. What’s your favorite part of the house?

A. We loved the front windows and the kitchen. The open space really brings our whole family together. Anytime I’m cooking, the kids are able to be involved.


This was such a special family and I loved getting the opportunity to work with the Morgans. We had so much fun designing the surprise spaces for the kids and I love how the project turned out as a whole!
