Mary Lynn Mabray, ASID

Everyone has a story… I bring yours to life! What makes up your story? It’s your interests, your sense of style, the things that make you happy, the places you’ve been, your background, your legacy, your journey. As the only Interior Designer with a professional screenwriting background, I am uniquely qualified to help you tell the story of you… in your home. Here’s how it works… 1. Start with the end in mind – In screenwriting, I start with the end in mind. We decide how you want the story to end.. what will happen to the main character, will they ride off into the sunset, will they live happily ever after? With my design clients… we also start with the end in mind. We design and decide how we want the room to feel, what we want it to look like, what part of your story do we want to tell. I envision my client’s homes already finished before I ever start the design process. “Know your ending before you know your beginning.” 2. Character Development: Each character in a screenplay contributes something to the overall story. And so it goes with each element in a room. Every piece contributes to the overall feel, purpose and style in a room. Therefore, every element must be carefully considered and well thought out before including it in the “story” of your room. 3. Focus: Start with the main character first.. then develop the other characters around him/her. We select the focal point of the room – fireplace, the view, the big screen TV and we build the design around that focal point. Each surrounding piece in your room supports the main focal point. 4. Act I, Act II, Act III: Just like in a screenplay, when designing your room, there are specific steps that must be performed in a specific order. For example… concept development, drawings, renderings, finish selection, fabrication, installation, etc. To produce the absolute very best results in your home, these steps or “Acts” must not be taken out of order. 5. The End – Happily Ever After: This is where everything comes together. You’ve arrived at the end, just like on the hero’s journey… the character rides off into the sunset. You have your beautiful room, home, project to enjoy for years to come. How Can We Help? By using our experienced interior design knowledge to provide you with the best advice on everything from pleasing color choices for your decor to creating aesthetically beautiful surroundings, specially for you, and doing it all through email. Style questions? We can tell you what kind of style best suits your needs—just email us photos of the areas of your home you have questions about, like your interior furnishings, or the exterior of your residence, and we can give you recommendations.

Black & White Custom Homes

At Black and White Construction we build each structure with superior products and quality without the need to increase the price to our competitors’ levels. Thoughtfulness, competitive buying, and care of product selection it’s what separates us from our competitors, this has helped our team keep cost down and pass those savings on to our customers. Consistently, our bids have always been lower than our competition. We work with each customer making them part of our team, developing ideas and solutions that surpass all expectations. The company continues to provide exceptional workmanship, products, service, and value every day to our customers. We pride ourselves on the integrity of our work, ability to build stable relationships and our capabilities to save customers time and money. Black and White was founded in 2006 by two builders with over 30 years of experience and was initially geared towards buying land and building its projects. Although successful and very profitable, one of the owners realized that many of the homes being built near Black and Whites’ were often of marginal quality and overpriced. Greg Simmons then decided he wanted to move the company towards a more service-oriented direction. He had the desire to build a better home that would cost less and give customers instant equity upon completion. It was a bold move and one he would be taking on his own. The company was reorganized with full ownership resting with Greg in 2008. Greg has been building residential and commercial buildings since 1986. He has built in California, New Mexico, and most recently in Houston Texas. He has completed over 500 structures ranging from low cost, first-time ownership homes to multi-million dollar dream homes, light commercial buildings to larger commercial projects and he enjoys remodels and additions. Building homes is a passion of Greg’s, and he likes to be hands-on, working side by side with his qualified and professional in-house crews. [read more]

Zander Homes™

We Stand Behind Our Work. At Zander Homes, we stand by our work.
