Kitchen

Client: Erica Gwaltney, founder and co-owner of Arrowpoint Interiors 
Contractor: RiverLane Homes

This is Erica’s kitchen! They recently completed building this home in beautiful Jacksonville, OR and we are slowly showing it to you. Erica designed this home to suit her family & herself. One of her favorite features of this kitchen is the porcelain slab she used as the backsplash. The movement and the simplicity are exactly what she wanted. Her love of black, white, gray & wood show up strong in this kitchen.

Through the door to the right is the laundry and pantry, which is accessible from the kitchen where she spends a lot of her time. To the left are two bedrooms and a bathroom. It’s a simple and usable home, exactly what they wanted. They prefer to use every inch of their home and not to have empty space. They enjoy having friends and family over in a casual way and wanted an open floor plan to accommodate their love of gathering. From the kitchen they have a view of the surrounding woods.

Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are the bomb! We love them because they bring so much character and uniqueness into a space. Here is a gallery wall that we did in Erica’s dining room. She wanted it feel loose and eclectic; not too planned out.

First, she picked the photographs she wanted to have in her gallery wall. Her focus was to have a group of photos from the places her and her family have traveled. In her collection she has the Eiffel Tower, Florence, Chamonix, Idaho, Kauai, art from the Louvre in Paris, the Colosseum in Rome, Santa Monica Pier, Amalfi Coast in Italy, Jacksonville, OR, and a beautiful photograph of a horse. Plus, a quote Erica loves that says, “The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live only as you can.” And the word FAITH on a postcard that she got when she was in high school.

Once we had all the art + photographs in frames we went to work hanging it on the wall.

We decided to add one more thing, and a sweet little plant clipping to the clay plant hanger.

Then it felt complete.

East Medford Master Bedroom Refresh

We all need to refresh our decor every so often. We have found people find greater happiness and productivity in life after putting some time and attention into refreshing their living spaces. That was the case with these sweet clients that live in the Summerfield subdivision in East Medford.

They invited us into their home to accomplish several things: paint color, pick new carpet, furniture and art placement, new bedding, and new lamps.

Here is the only before picture I have. It is of their office area in their bedroom. You can see the difference the new paint color and fresh carpet make.

The very first order of business was painting the trim and walls and replacing the carpet.

They did such a good job of cleaning out, organizing, and adding an office station in their walk in closet so it wasn’t visually cluttering their bedroom. She said she wanted her room to feel peaceful & purposeful so we suggested they hide the clutter that comes along with a home office.

We are very strong believers that our homes impact us emotionally and mentally. We all live very busy lives so we are fond of keeping our interiors as minimal and clutter free as possible so we can have clear brains. Clutter free homes means clutter free brains. Organized homes mean productive lives.

This bedroom went from feeling cluttered and confusing to feeling purposeful and peaceful. There was a tangible difference that we all felt when we were completed. This might not be able to be expressed through a picture, but the result was exactly what we all wanted!

We were thrilled to be able to work with these clients and to help take their Master bedroom to that peaceful place they were looking for. The end result was a bedroom that was totally them and they were so happy with how it turned out.

716 N. Laurel St., Ashland, OR

Isn’t it so rewarding seeing your hard work come to life? We love the end result of this new build we’ve been working on the last several months. We truly enjoyed working with Taylored Elements Construction. They were so easy to work with and trusted our design decisions. This house is so stinking cute! We love its personality and charm!

We love the beautiful White Oak hardwood floors, built in bookshelves, and fireplace that greet you as you walk into this adorable home.

The kitchen is spacious and has a lot of storage. We love the layout and also how from the kitchen you can see out of all the windows, taking in the beautiful Ashland views.

The brushed nickel cabinet and drawer pulls create a traditional and yet modern feel. The long, flat hex backsplash adds character and visual interest and yet doesn’t compete with the rest of the kitchen details.

New construction is our love. Our Dad was a Building Contractor which caused us to grow up around new homes. We loved riding along with our Dad as he would check on the job sites and we loved walking through the homes and dreaming about what would fill them. We love that we now get to use our interior design skills on new construction and help builders and clients.

Thanks,

Art Round Up

Art is essential. Art doesn’t have to be expensive, it can be for everyone and in every room of your house. I really encourage you to get unique and creative with the art pieces you hang on your wall. It can make or break a room. I love mixing pieces from our travels, pieces from Home Goods that really spoke to me, pieces friends have done for us. Photography is one of my favorite ways of incorporating art. I love nature and photography so I have a lot of that type of art on our walls.

To get into it you should begin by asking yourself what you are drawn to, what stirs in you? That is the best way to know what colors, style, and medium you want in your home. I firmly believe our homes should inspire us to go into the world and make a difference. Art is a really great way to be inspired, to know yourself more, and to make an impact.

So, here are some fun pieces of art and where you can find them. Enjoy!


// 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8 // 9 // 10 // 11 // 12


If you loved these pieces of art I chose you could have us purchase them and hang them as a gallery wall in your home.

Thanks so much for reading along! I hope you enjoy your art search and adding inspiration to your home!

A Playful Play Room

We recently completed a super fun job! We got to design and style a playroom for a couple cute kiddos (and their parents). When we went over to their house for the consultation we asked what Liv wanted to accomplished in the playroom, she voiced that she wanted it to be organized and adorable. So we got to work. By the way, Liv is an amazing photographer and you can find her on IG @olivialeighphotography. All these pictures are taken by her.

Before.

So many fun toys to play with, just needed a place to put them.

IMG_3458.JPG

After.

We used Trofast Organizers from IKEA and they worked perfectly for what we wanted to accomplish. Now the kids have a place to put all their toys.

We bought a few new baskets, a new light fixture, a new lamp, and then used what great items they had in their house. It’s really fun to incorporate new things into what is already in a home.

Our Process.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hire an interior designer? Are you a little confused by the process? We wanted to walk you through our process so you can see how fun and low-stress it can be.

fullsizeoutput_1048.jpeg

First, you contact us via email (www.arrowpointinteriors@gmail.com) or phone (541-840-2250) and we chat about what you are wanting done in your home. Is it one room of your house that you need help with, a whole house redo, new construction, remodel, or just some new pillows and art? We discuss what the design dilemma is and how you want your home to feel. During this conversation we set up a time we can come to your home and look at the room(s).

Next, we go to your house and see the thing in real life. We go over what you are needing our help with, what your budget it, and what our process would be for your specific project.

After that, we will get busy crafting a proposal of what it will cost. Some of our starting prices are on our website (www.arrowpointinteriors.com) if you are curious. We will email you the proposal and the contract to sign. We require half of the total cost up front and the other half at completion of project. You read over the proposal, ask any questions you have, we can rework the proposal too and come up with something we all agree on. You sign the proposal and get us the deposit.

fullsizeoutput_1049.jpeg

Once we receive the signed proposal and the deposit we get to work on your house! We usually like to have a second house visit during the project so we can keep your home fresh in our minds as we are working on what is needed for your home.

If we ordered new furniture for your home we like to do an install day and get it set up properly and style it attractively for you. Each home is unique thus each project is unique and we are very flexible and creative with each project.

fullsizeoutput_1047.jpeg

Don’t be shy in reaching out to us and asking us to come over to see your home and talk with you about what we can do. Our in-home consultations are free. We feel very strongly that our homes impact our lives in very real and tangible ways. It is extremely important to have a space that inspires and takes care of you on a daily basis. If your home isn’t doing that it needs some attention.

Have a wonderful day!

Twin Boys' Room

Recently we did an install in twin, teenage boys’ room. It was so fun designing this space for these awesome guys! We wanted it to have everything they needed for sleeping, doing homework, gaming, and TV watching with their friends. We wanted there to be enough seating for friends to come over and hang. Our goal was to keep it simple, very fun, and functional for them. We will show 2 before pics and then we will show the afters. Ready?

Annie's Flowers & Arrowpoint Interiors

Recently I had the privilege of assisting Jasmine from Annie's Flowers with flowers for a wedding. It was held at Red Lily Vineyard, which is absolutely stunning and located in the Applegate Valley on a lazy river. Jasmine is extremely talented and worked very hard to ensure this wedding would end up perfect. I was simply there to assist her vision and use my creativity to compliment her gift with flowers. I loved it! I had so much fun simply helping her vision come to life. Sometimes it's so nice to use my creativity and not be the one in charge of how it ends up. It was a long and tiring, but super fun day! Thanks Jasmine for asking Arrowpoint Interiors to assist you!

The Gallery Wall

To say that I love Gallery Walls would be an understatement. I could have one on every wall of my house, haha! As of right now I have 4 gallery walls in my house and that is with me using restraint. I wonder why I love them so much? I'm not exactly sure, other than I love photography, art and displaying random, sentimental things on the wall; so it just goes that I would love gallery walls. 

I recently did a beautiful gallery wall in someone's home. It consisted of their old, family photos. It turned out amazing! The gallery wall ran down their hallway after you enter the house and are heading to the living and kitchen area. I bought new frames, had them all re-matted with a perfect off-white color and then we hung them in a pleasing group that spoke of history and modern life. Perfection! Maybe you will be inspired to create a Gallery Wall after reading this and seeing the pictures. Enjoy!
