Entry # 23 | Casual Contemporary
The home was originally built in the 1970’s and had not been renovated since. The original owners owned a lumber yard and had installed beautiful hardwoods throughout. One challenge the new homeowners faced was updating the home to fit their design style while maintaining some of the characteristics of the original design. Their focus was on the two largest rooms, the kitchen and living room. The key elements were incorporating additional seating in the kitchen by adding a second large quartz peninsula and creating a modern focal point in both rooms with the fireplaces that fit their contemporary casual style.
Entry # 24 | Mid-Century Bathroom
This client wanted to update their primary bathroom with their favorite style, mid-century modern. This project was designed for a condo and the client did not want to move any interior walls. However, they wanted the space to feel larger. A sleek and organized design led them to this light and airy primary bath. This client also wanted to age in place, so large walkways and accessible fixtures were important in this design.
Entry # 25 | Cool Contrast
The objective of this guest bathroom was to make the space feel larger and brighter to coordinate with the attached guest bedroom. Adding a window allowed for more sunlight and by extending the shower there is now better usable space. The vanity ended up being the focal point with a completely new custom designed door style and layered enclosed cabinets with open shelving. The rich stain packed the perfect punch to this neutral color palette and gave it a nice contrast. Ultimately, this little bathroom is welcoming to all guests and the perfect size for two people to get ready with enough space.
Entry # 26 | Stone Fireplace
The clients wanted to update their fireplace area to blend with the rest of the home. Something current and cozy. The space surrounding the fireplace was used for built-ins to house their entertainment items. A beautiful stone was added to push the mixed material aesthetic. The built-in was custom painted with a soft white quartz counter paired with the contrast of a rich stained wood mantel above the fireplace. The biggest design challenge was combining these materials to complement each other and produce a light and bright look.
Entry # 27 | Light + Stylish
Moving the pantry out of the footprint of the kitchen allowed the design to accommodate 42-inch walkways, perfect for a couple aging in place. By incorporating a clever use of appliances, they could be easily reached from standing or a seated position. LVT flooring was installed for better lifetime maintenance and durability for any walking assistant. The outcome of thoughtful planning and creative minds lead to a unique and one-of-a-kind kitchen that fit these client’s personality and living style.
Entry # 28 | Abstract Brilliance
This home is nestled in the trees with a water view. This space was uniquely designed to entertain and function brilliantly for these homeowners. A new layout, more windows and an open sloped ceiling gave it new life. These avid cooks had a large list of appliances that had to be integrated into the space for their ideal culinary scenario. The finishes are mixed, exciting and functional. Cabinets are faced with FENIX from Italy, tempered glass and faux leather. The tile is marble with brass inlays laid in an abstract pattern. Lighting is an enticing display of entangled light forms.
