Award Winning Design - We Took First Place!!

We were so thrilled to have the opportunity to participate in the "IIDA Intermountain Chapter Best Awards 2015" a few months ago. Alongside other fantastic Design and Architect firms' projects, our project "The Haven" was in competition for LIVE: Single Unit Residential and FURNISH: Furniture Design.  Seeing the projects of other companies and the designs they put so much effort into is always energizing and inspiring.  Plus, mingling with other people who love design as much as we do was a great way to spend the evening.

A panel of nationally recognized interior design talents were chosen to be the judges, including Chris Sculpin, the Creative Director for the Mohawk Group, and Michelle Dawn of San Fransisco design firm Studio O+a. The awards ceremony itself was full of anticipation, hoots and hollers, and a lot of applause. We are SO excited to say that our project "The Haven" took first place in not just one, but the TWO categories we entered! We are so honored and thrilled to know that our client is enjoying an award-winning home.

It was a wonderful night, with fantastic friends, conversation, and food. After the awards, we had some fun and took advantage of the photo booth to commemorate the evening.

We're looking forward to the future, and can't wait to share with you all of the before and afters of our award winning design project "The Haven."
