Project Notes

We were approached by this client because they were very inspired by one of our previous projects and wanted a similar look in their home. They had a clear vision and excellent taste, so it was dream collaboration!

The home had great bones, but a master suite addition was never properly finished, so that was the first thing to tackle. From there the objective was to create a more functional floor plan in the large living space and bring in new materials and finishes to other areas that made the home better reflect their personal style.

At the front of the house, we created an entry and library with custom built-in white oak cabinetry. The concrete floors were refinished to show more of the aggregate, resulting in a natural almost terrazzo feel. Custom sofas mixed with unique vintage pieces in the living room and large textural area rugs further defined the room. Art commissioned from local artists and a rare vintage tapestry combined to bring all of the elements together. A new center volume was created from custom-milled white oak to hold the television and components on one side, and a bar on the other–dividing living from dining. The stairs were completely redesigned by our team and the builder to create the more open, modern look our client wanted.

Kitchen cabinetry was redesigned in custom white oak with brass hardware, highlighting the Mountain Danby marble countertops and hand-made textural backsplash tiles.

Similar materials were used in the upstairs master suite to create a cohesive feel throughout the home. A custom white-oak vanity with soapstone counter top, hand-made shower tile and warm caramel brown floor tile unified the two floors.

We had some fun in the powder room with a mural commissioned from a local artist. The art also carries to the bar area. It provides a jolt of color and whimsy in an otherwise serene space.

This home was featured in the Tribeza Interiors Tour 2020.
