What do you do when your space is limited but you really want, or in some cases, need a main floor bathroom? One option is adding a small bathroom or powder room. This is a bathroom that fits within your existing blueprint and doesn't require a total overhaul or home remodel to make it work within your space. Here at Quartersawn, we love anything that will make your life and household run smoothly. Check out some of our powder rooms and small bathrooms below.
We love custom details! Incredible metal railings happen to fall into this category. We've installed railings in new homes as well as in remodeled homes we've designed and built. In either setting, they stand out as a modern, sophisticated design statement.
Come visit us to see how we've worked within this homes existing blueprint to reinvent a classic 1970's rambler into a space that's light, bright, and welcoming.

This week we are looking back on past Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase projects. It's fun to see the spaces in their original state and how they've transformed. We're looking forward to showing a beautiful home renovation this weekend in West Edina. We would love to see you there! Link here for details
Last week on the blog we established that using wallpaper itself was not so much a trend but a design staple at this point in time. We looked at some of our past clients who've used wallpaper in their homes and saw the ways they used the patterns to create more interesting spaces.
This week we're looking at a few trends within the wallpaper industry. I had to limit this to 5 categories, obviously there are many more. We would love to hear from you on this topic. Do you have any wallpaper you're dreaming about?
Category 1: Florals + Fauna
The market is full of beautiful floral and fauna arrangements, ranging from mural-like designs to large repeats that create a lush and rich aesthetic. These papers are statements in themselves and would be a purchase you would never regret.
Category 2: Marble
Calico Wallpaper deserves to be written about in more detail here. The wallpaper designs were created out of years of research in various marbling techniques that span the globe. The arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, emanating from Japan and Turkey are evident in the papers and are just a couple of examples of where this couple draws their inspiration from. The result is unique papers that are simply gorgeous!
Category 3: Geometrics
I know there are hundreds of geometric patterns and prints out there but these images stuck out. The neutral palette, coupled with larger repeat patterns made me love these geometric wallpapers.
Category 4: Ombre
The ombre trend is one that is still appreciated in the world of wallpaper. These rich colors give a subtle presence in these spaces and offer up a sense of calm.
Category 5: Local hand-painted wallpaper
You're invited to tour Quartersawn's modern reinvention of a classic 1970's rambler. See how we transformed these dated spaces into something light, bright, and welcoming.

We've completely transformed the kitchen, dining room, living room and eating area! Come and visit us to see more.
We get asked about wallpaper a lot these days. Our clients are open to using wallpaper as an accent or statement for their homes. After seeing a resurgence of wallpaper in the United States and elsewhere over the past five plus years, I think it's safe to say that wallpaper is more than just a trend. The trend is here to stay as an effective way to design and decorate spaces in the home.
The options for wallpaper are growing quickly with many companies creating amazing designs and patterns.
Here are a few papers our clients have chosen in the past. We are excited to see what they will choose next. If you're interested in learning more let us know and we will bring the latest designs and trends to you.
Bathrooms, powder rooms, hallways, entryways, closets ... there are so many places that can be given texture and pattern to create a more more interesting space.
A while back I decided to ditch the highways, gridlock and road rage for a more peaceful commute. Minnehaha Parkway is now the route I take to and from work and I have to say, I'm struck by it's beauty and charm daily. It's a winding road with a slower pace but it's one that I'm willing to take over the stress of the freeway.
One great advantage of this route is driving by projects Quartersawn has worked on in the past. There are some amazing Minneapolis homes along this drive that we've taken part in building and restoring. I decided to share the view with you this week and point out a few homes along this stretch we've had the honor of working on.
We like to incorporate steel in creative ways in our designs and projects. Steel isn't just for handrails and structural I-beams. Steel can be fabricated and crafted into integral components of a project. Steel can easily be added to homes that have a modern aesthetic but can also add to a something unique to traditional homes. Take a look at some of our steel detailing in these highlighted projects.
We want to take a moment and show our gratitude for our returning clients. Currently, 4 out of our 5 existing projects are returning clients and their family members. We are so honored to be working with these folks again and building on the work we started years ago.
Here are some project highlights with these past clients. We look forward to sharing the existing projects and their outcomes with you soon.
Diamond Lake Two-Story
We transformed a one-story into a two-story home located in the beautiful Diamond Lake Neighborhood of Minneapolis. We are currently working on the basement in this home and look forward to seeing the transformation!
Linden Hills Modern Cottage
One of our most involved projects to date was this home located in the Linden Hills Neighborhood. The entire first floor was removed and rebuilt! Below are some shots of the kitchen before the renovation and after. We are thrilled to be currently working on a project for this client's family.
Lynnhurst Creekside Contemporary
This was a remarkable renovation of a new home in the Lynnhurst Neighborhood. The newly built home had so much potential, the bones were there we just had to create a new layout for the interior. The exterior aesthetic now matches the interior and we are so happy to be back at it working out a few more details.
Kingfield Kitchen Remodel
This project transformed the previous kitchen that had little counter space and no eating area into a functional family friendly room. We added a beautiful island with a large white marble countertop along with opening up a spacious eating area in the corner of the room with plenty of natural light. We look forward to completing the second round of remodeling for this family's basement area. Pictures soon to come!
