For this master bedroom, designer Crisermy's client was very certain of what she wanted, and it could be described in one word: bold. The red roses wall mural is a great way to bring in some sexiness to the room and make a big statement. The saturated red combined with a crisp white bed frame and white cloud light fixture make this bedroom unique and romantic. A soffit with recessed lighting is the final touch to help the space feel warm and inviting.
Crisp and Clean
A minimalistic bathroom is the sanctuary of this particular client. The white elements of this master bathroom make the one-of-a-kind wall art pop as one of the main features of the space.
Modern and Airy
Crystal white quartz countertops with tempered glass mosaics, wood veneer cabinets and stainless steel appliances make this Italian-style kitchen feel clean, fresh and modern.
Spacious Guest Retreat
A chocolate-brown leather chaise lounge is the perfect spot for reading in this guest bedroom retreat. Crisermy drew inspiration for the space from the natural, oceanic elements just outside and the saturated brown porcelain floor that helps set the mood for this relaxing space.
Crisermy converted an oversized closet into a third bedroom or relaxing den for overnight guests, including a convertible chair that turns into a bed. To make the space feel larger, a floral mural brings the eye up the wall.
Primp in Style
For this small, loft-style powder room, Crisermy took a minimalist approach and used a neutral color scheme with splashes of bright hues here and there. The floating vanity helps increase square footage and makes the space appear sleeker.
Contemporary Cook Space
Crisermy completely renovated and remodeled this small apartment. One main request from the client was opening up the kitchen to the living area and keeping some architectural items that could not be removed. With that in mind, a "window" was opened to connect both living/dining areas with the new kitchen. The combination of wood, stainless steel appliances and glass doors along with the lime-green tempered-glass panel on the bar make a great combination for a modern, sleek and functional space, keeping in mind the young and fresh personality of the client.
Walls of Mosaics
This guest bathroom created a big concern due to the small space Crisermy had to work with. Using a narrow glass and stainless steel vanity not only provides more space to enter the shower, but it also makes the space feel larger by not having a bulky furniture piece blocking the pathway.
Crisermy designed and executed this geometric wall mural that she found in her architecture thesis textbook, then combined it with a colorful and eclectic palette to make the space feel fresh, fun and unique.
