2013 Chrysalis Award
Normandy Designer’s Talent Recognized On Regional & National Level
We are excited to announce a fantastic achievement for one of the Normandy Designers; Leslie (Marzec) Lee recently entered two of her projects into the Chrysalis Awards, and both of them won! Better yet, one was a regional winner and the other brought in a national title. “Normandy Remodeling has been recognized for years on a national level through awards and publications, but for me to be recognized individually is a true honor,” says Leslie. “Both of the homeowners for these projects were fantastic to work with, and really let my creative intuition play a big role in the projects.” The entries were judged on overall design, the creative use of space and materials, and the degree to which the project enhanced the original structure.
Leslie completed an entire interior renovation of one home that won the regional award; she was able to
tailor the space to incorporate not only the homeowners’ style, but also bits and pieces that the husband had made in his woodworking shop or that the couple had collected while traveling. ”The home has a rustic feel to it, and it was important to the homeowners to work off that,” commented Leslie. “I incorporated a beautiful terra cotta tile backsplash tile with unique metal glaze to add a soothing aesthetic and complement the rustic style. In the powder room, the soothing color palette continued, while utilizing an asymmetric design to create interest in a simple space.
The national award-winning project was a stunning porch addition where Lee was able to effectively increase the porch’s usability by incorporating infrared heaters. She also tied in a variety of materials and styles to make the porch an extension of the home’s interior, rather than an unrelated outdoor space.
If you’d like Leslie to help transform your home, schedule a complimentary, in-home consultation with her today.
