Opposite page: Soaring bird wallpaper adorns the stair risers leading to the second floor. The door frame to the master suite was widened creating a grand entrance.

is a prime example of Jenny’s incredibly creative mind that the Muellers so appreciate. “Jenny has been able to draw out a creative side of me I never knew I had,” Jessie says. “She has given me confidence in yself as an artist.” The master bedroom floor proved to be a true test of both Jessie and Jenny’s confidence when their vision started to fall apart. Going for a whitewashed look, an error in communication left the floor looking like a glossy gym floo . But have no fear, Jenny came to the rescue when she showed up with a sander and started randomly distressing spots. The end result is even better than the designer and homeowners could have imagined. The master bedroom fl ws effortlessly into the master bath, with classic white tile and a clawfoot tub. The metal-wrapped vanity from Restoration Hardware was given an unexpected upgrade with wood knobs. Brass fi tures add an eclectic feel to the more traditional elements of the space. The bathroom is accessorized with unique treasures like the deer head on the shiplap wall, brass oval frame and teal light fi tures with subtle copper distressing. Now delighting in the hard work of their third home renovation as a couple, Jessie and Ron have gained a great appreciation for the process. “We’ve learned we love to take something you can’t see the beauty in and make it beautiful,” Jessie says. “It has been one the main parts of our relationship,” adds Ron. And it’s the special synergy among the design trio that has made their Compton Heights home such a special collaboration. See www.stlouishomesmag.com for resources.
