My Home

I am so excited!  I have some wonderful news to share.....I am doing a remodel on my own home.  The Kitchen!!  I will finally be able to use all of those photos I have been tearing out or saving on the web of  the things I would love to do if it were my own kitchen.  It seems like I have been doing that forever.  Some of the photos have yellowed with age but I love classic, timeless design.  As the project progresses I will share photos with you so you can see the process and share in the experience with me.

Recently I had photos taken of my home by,  Kyle is so wonderful to work with.  His use of light is amazing.

The Joys of a happy client

 Amazing custom closet remodel
 Clean, simple, timeless choices with his and her vanities.
 Love to live vicariously thru my clients with the addition of this track door and custom closet (in the bedroom area ) to take advantage of unused space, such a great addition.
Amazing, serene space.  Thank you Meg for the amazing opportunity to work with you on this project.

O so Beautiful

What an absolute pleasure it has been for me to work with my client on her bedroom re-design. Her amazing vision  and  ability to trust our decisions , made this bedroom redesign one of my favorites.

Classic, timeless and simply beautiful describe this bedroom.  The  Merida jute rug pulls everything together in this large space.  Linen, natural unfinished furnishings, and brass highlight complete the scheme.  Enjoy.   Kyle Caldwell Photography

What a difference a day (ok, maybe 6 weeks) makes; a before and after in progress…..

I'd like to share with all of you a work in progress.  My amazing clients  hired us to help with a bathroom/closet remodel . The existing bath and closets were small and had many "issues".  Multiple pitches and roof lines,  unfortunate space planning ,  bad selections of materials were just a few of the problems that they/we were dealing with.  A complete gut followed and a new design from us is close to completion.

 Here are some before pictures, it's hard to  get a feel for the space and just what we were up against.
With the help of Chuck Hrenchuk from Attention to Detail(an incredible contractor….he hates when I use amazing) and many incredibly talented sub contractors , we came up with this gorgeous space.  Stay tuned for pictures which show the completion..  As always, here at  Kelly McGuill home we opt for  materials that are beautiful ,classic and stand the test of time.  For the bathroom floor tile my clients selected a gorgeous grey porcelain tile which requires no maintenance at all  in place of Carrara marble, which does require some after care.

We can't wait to get the glass shower enclosure up and finishing touches completed.  Stay tuned.  All my best, Kelly

Amazing Before and After

Work has been busy,  I have many creative and interesting things happening that I'll fill you in on later.  Here is a project that I want to share with all of you. One client that I have worked with over the years is a good friend.  She came to me several years ago for help with their Cape Cod house.  Pat, wanted her  summer home to feel quite different from their home above, which is in a suburb of Boston.  Pat and her husband are amazing , down-to earth people.  They have raised four incredible sons, who turned out to be really nice people, just like their parents. I loved working on these two rooms and making them feel more like this great couple. It was a collaboration with Pat that made all of this incredibly successful, So now (drum roll please)  the before pics.  Pat allowed me to share these with you.

 These are two of the before pictures.  We added new hardwood flooring to the family room, removed the brick wall and wood burning stove, painted, added new window treatments, new furnishing and kept some of the old furnishing.
It's a transformation that really works.  It's classic, simple and beautiful.  Natural light comes thru, the rooms now feel like Pat and Walter.  Thank you both for letting me be a part of your project.  All my best, Kelly
