We are beyond thrilled to bring home two grand and one merit award from NARI's annual CotY Gala!

We're thrilled to have Sarah C. Wilson join our design team. Her experience with her own interior design firm @chansaeraedesigns equips Sarah with a breadth of design knowledge as well as an intense focus blending clients’ aesthetics with current trends.

Sarah thinks that guiding principles are as important as trends when choosing design elements for your home:

🏠 Design a home that feels like you every time you come into the door.

🏠 Good design is like good fashion. Choose elements you love and that will carry you through the years and accessorize the heck out of them.

🏠 Don’t worry too much about trends, they will come and go but if you love what you’ve chosen that’s what’s important.

A common thread among home design professionals is a deep love of ...you guessed it, tile. So many options, so many ways to express a client’s taste. Here’s a small sampling of functional and sharp uses tailored to each home owners needs.

Cabinets and appliances are important decisions, but don't overlook lighting when remodelling your kitchen. Kitchen lighting is no place to skimp, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to make a big impact.

Our client asked us to create a large spa-like master bath working space constraints. A united theme of white and grey opens up the space and is tied together by a full wall of marble, a Carrara vanity top and a basketweave marble tile floor. Luxurious doesn't need to be fussy.

How’s this for a before and after?

When the owners chose to build an addition on their home they opened up the way for creating a functional and appealing space that works for their family. Our designers led them through the process of thinking through every design choice and finish selection. It's hard to remember what this bathroom -- and the rest of the house -- looked prior to the whole house renovation.

What do you like about this bathroom?

What style of living room reflects your style -- and your life? This family wanted to preserve architectural elements of their home and chose a tray ceiling that makes the room a bit more formal. The other family opted for lots of light and a more casual open layout that makes life with children a bit more manageable.

Did you make a resolution to be more organized in 2020? If you’re renovating your space this year make sure you have the foundations in place to keep on top of gear AND then do the editing to keep it looking good.

Our designers can make great suggestions as where to carve out space and how to create logical solutions to storage needs. We’re here to help you channel your inner Marie Kondo!

Not only does our creative use of interior and exterior windows illuminate this row home’s center stairway, but the iron railings bring the light down to the first floor. Our architects worked with J3 Iron Group to bring their vision to life.

How do you cook? Do you need lots of space to spread out? Do you have a sous chef but want to stay out of each other’s way? Our designers will ask thoughtful questions that ensure your kitchen is not only dreamy but works perfectly with your cooking habits.

Choosing to pair white tile with a white countertop is one of the best ways to brighten up a space and make it feel larger. It also provides a gorgeous canvas for colorful accessories.

If your holiday season has you running ragged, imagine yourself in this impressive master bath retreat. Our designers really took this enormous space up a notch with the Carrara floor tile that contrasts with the tile on the walls and ceiling (!!!).

After some quiet time with a book and a glass of wine here you might just be ready to tackle those cards.

The team at Blue Star wishes you a very joyful holiday season.
