Industry Contacts

Through our years of experience in the design industry, we’ve worked with a lot of great people and companies.  Here are some of our “friends” in the design world.

Black Creek Workshop/Bespoke Kitchens (http://www.blackcreekworkshop.com/)

We’ve worked with and known Ben Bristow (the man behind Black Creek Workshop) since 1999.  If your project calls for custom cabinets or any other type of custom woodwork this is who we’ll likely be working with.  From full custom kitchen cabinets to custom bathroom vanities, they have an impeccable level of quality and detail.

DJ Oros Construction (http://djorosconstruction.com/index.html)

A general contractor based out of Chevy Chase, MD who works in DC, MD, and VA that we’ve worked with for over 8 years

JML Remodeling, Inc (http://www.jmlremodeling.com/)

A general contractor based out of Silver Spring, MD who works in DC and MD.  We’ve worked with JML for over 8 years

Products

What you (we) use to complete your project is just as important as the floor plans and drawings we create for how your space looks and feels as you live in it.  Here are some suppliers we have worked with successfully over the years.

Architectural Ceramics (http://www.architecturalceramics.com/)

A tile supplier with showrooms throughout the area.  They can accommodate projects of all sizes, style and budget

Mosaic Tile Company (http://www.mosaictileco.com/)

Another tile supplier with showrooms throughout the area. They also can accommodate projects of all sizes, style and budget

Thomas Somerville Co. (http://www.tsomerville.com/)

A great resource for plumbing supplies with local showrooms so you can check out the products before you purchase

Y Lighting (http://www.ylighting.com/)

A website with a very large selection of modern lighting

Build.com (http://www.build.com/)

An online hardware store.  Even if your contractor will be supplying fixtures for your projects, this is a great source to shop for what will go in your project.  From faucets to light fixtures to door knobs they have a huge selection to look through.

Design Ideas

Social media is making it incredibly easy to share design ideas.  As the adage says, “a picture is worth a thousand words”  These sites are a great tool for us to get a sense of your aesthetic and any other features you might like to have in your project.  Here are some of our favorite sites

Houzz (http://www.houzz.com/pro/mcdstudio/mcd-studio-llc)

Houzz is a great place to find and share images you like.  If you start working with us, it’s a great place to create an “ideabook” and send us some images of what styles and any ideas you like.

Pinterest (http://www.pinterest.com/matt1561/boards/)

Pinterest is similar to Houzz, but for more than just the building industry.  It’s another great resource to collect ideas and share them with us for your proeject.

Dwell (http://www.dwell.com/)

A magazine focusing on design in the modern world, they feature lots of awesome projects and products

Apartment Therapy (http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/)

A great source for clever designer ideas with plethora of user-generated ideas and articles.
