When She Says She Likes Sparkle…

Holy Hale Navy! (by Benjamin Moore) This kitchen is all dressed up in tuxedo cabinets with bright, shiny, chrome fixtures and hardware. The super sleek, cement-like floor tiles paired with the mixed-marble, arabesque backsplash is simply swoon worthy!

We updated all the appliances and relocated the cooktop under the microwave for a more functional layout. We ditched the giant, 80’s, fluorescent light and replaced it with recessed task lighting and a swanky fandelier to keep ’em cool while they’re cooking. The cabinets were given an extra 12″ of height and topped off with glass doors. This gorgeous girl was finished off with under counter lighting, the always contemporary Delta Trinsic faucet and a sleek, single basin, stainless sink.

Check out the pics below to see modern function and absolute stunning sparkle.

Happy Birthday, Stay Awhile

What an unbelievable year it’s been! I’m so grateful to amazing clients who have given me the privilege to come into their precious homes and transform their spaces. Thank you for all the referrals! My business would be nonexistent if it wasn’t for the word of mouth advertising from friends, family, and pleased past clients. Thanks for understanding the much needed time off as I recovered from a divorce. Thank you for the busyness and purpose Stay Awhile has brought back into my life! This gig has gone from a hobby to a side hustle and now into a full blown J-O-B! It is the biggest blessing and I can’t wait to see all the things this new year brings. Stay Awhile is growing and changing and committed to breathing new life into the Clear Lake area. This community is everything to me and I hope it is to you too. Thanks for letting me make it beautiful again so we can all put down some roots and Stay Awhile. xo – Rachel

Getting to Know Them

Every home is different. Each is made up of the people inside…their memories, their lifestyle, their travels, and their unique style. This is the best part of my job. I get the opportunity to dive into who they are and what makes their homes tick. This isn’t a one size fits all, cookie cutter, just make it look pretty design. This is one of a kind. Made just for them. Their style, their passions, their HOME. Best. Job. Ever.




Beach House Bathroom

This beach house bathroom was a small space with HUGE potential. It was cramped, dark, dysfunctional and to be honest…pretty fugly. We ponied a wall which flooded the room with light. We also glassed in the shower which gave the illusion of more space. Ship lap brought in charm and brightness. The weathered wood vanity and greenery tied in natural elements, and finally marble to add a touch of traditional elegance. It is a beach house after all, so the unexpected stripes in the shower keep it casual and fun and fuss free. She’s a beauty.
