The day has finally come that my Willow Wick project for some real estate investors is finished! If you've been following along, you've seen where I started, the progress, and now the reveal. As I always say, it's a little underwhelming without furnishings, but one day they will let me stage! One day...

And because my business is two-fold: (1) designer for investors who flip properties, and (2) designer for clients who are designing their personal homes, I want to make it clear that we make design decisions on these flip properties based on budget and the ability to make a profit when the project is finished, therefore I design differently for these projects than I do for my personal clients. We don't invest in some of the design details and finishes we normally would because we leave some updates up to the lucky person who buys the home :)

The photos I used were taken for the MLS (real estate listing site) and they didn't get a good picture of the upstairs bathroom, so I will have to take a picture of that and share it with you later this week. 

Remember, if you are interested in this home please feel free to contact me! Or if you are looking for a remodeled home in Salt Lake County - send me an email. I always have a couple I'm working on. (In fact I have one in the Avenues, in Sugarhouse, and one in Highland Park if you are looking).


  1. so beautiful marianne. really just stunning. x

  2. such a beautiful blank slate you've created for a new homeowner. i particularly love the wood paneling up the stairs and in the bathroom. good luck with the sell!

  3. Gorgeous!!

  4. You did a fantastic job! I really enjoy when you feature this type of work. While I realize that you definitely choose different finishes based on sell-ability, it's really nice that you at least go way better than the standard "builder grade" stuff that's been seen. You've got my dream job- I'd love to pick finishes like this! Anyway, great job. :)

  5. I don't know how you do it, but you have stunned me again! Incredible transformation!

  6. Did you use V groove paneling or individual V groove planks? Love the look!

    1. We used V groove planks. And thank you for the nice compliment! I'm so happy you like it. Your encouragement gives me the push I need to keep doing these :) So stressful sometimes!

  7. This is stunning! Love every detail
