A Lady’s Retreat

Mon 07 2010

A bidet and soaking tub with contemporary fixtures and fittings added to the contemporary flair of the home. A long double sink Pullman was replaced with a single one to allow space for the bidet, placed adjacent to the toilet. A subtle decorative element was created through iridescent glass mosaic tiles vertically dividing the mirror behind the sink. Cheryl Hamilton-Gray.

Other Rooms

Fri 12 2008

The room was intended to be a rustic, but comfortable getaway space for the client to attend to hobbies, watch the news or complete a little business if necessary while vacationing. Knotty reclaimed cypress with a natural finish was chosen for the wall wainscot paneling, cathedral ceiling beams and cathedral paneling. In contrast, a hand hewn, rich-stained butternut was selected for the desk and entertainment unit. These rustic woods mixed with two soft overstuffed chairs make it the perfect place to relax with a book from the homeowners’ collection. Bryan Reissother-rooms

A Gathering Place

Fri 12 2008

Other Rooms. A simple kitchenette in a toffee finish was provided to allow guests to attend to themselves, as well as to conveniently support a neighboring outdoor kitchen and patio for the owners. A seating area was integrated into a hutch, to appear more like a built-in furniture piece than a table. A Murphy bed was designed into a bookcase, allowing the couple’s parents a place to retreat during their visits. Heated floors keep the chiseled limestone tile warm to the touch, while guests can cozy up to the massive stone fireplace on a cool evening. Tricia Bayer a-gathering-place

Other Rooms. The original office was overrun with exposed equipment, cords, books and paperwork in need of a designated home. The homeowners deemed that storage was of primary importance. Knotty cherry cabinets in a low sheen sienna stain appear rich next to the warm faux copper tin ceiling. New natural oak hardwood flooring helps to lighten the space in contrast to the dark cabinets. The green aged leather faux finished walls add to the old world charm and complement the mesmerizing rainforest green granite countertop. For the primary work area, a knotty cherry wood countertop supplements the granite. Sheila K. Tilandergentleman_s-hideaway

Rustic Retreat

Fri 12 2008

Other Rooms. The wet bar was designed with fully integrated appliances to allow the rustic finishes and natural materials to be dominant in the design. Distressed butternut cabinetry was specified to tie in with the rustic beams. A handmade copper bar sink was under-mounted below the black honed granite countertop. The upper level bar top was made of double-layer Red Dragon granite. The custom furniture piece in the sitting area was designed to complement and balance the wet bar. The large central doors retracted into the cabinetry for television viewing. All of the custom butternut cabinetry was embellished with rusted iron hardware. The decorative lighting, furniture, artwork and luxurious fabrics provide a warm and inviting environment for the clients to live and entertain. Sandra L. Steiner-Houck rustic-retreat

Fabulous Function

Fri 12 2008

Showrooms. The past kitchen was a combination of a natural oak cabinet with a raised panel and a burgundy cherry cabinet with a raised panel. The goal was to match the functionality of the original design, but use an updated style that clients would love. The showroom display now receives a lot of attention from visiting clients as their “favorite” kitchen. It has a unique, classy appeal for higher end consumers. The showroom has met all expectations and has exceeded clients’ needs, inspiring them to think outside the box. Areti Tanya Rentzos fabulous-function

Terrific Textures

Fri 12 2008

Showrooms. Incorporating the skills of a talented installation team, a beautiful coffered ceiling was created, then enhanced by a local artisan who glazed the ceiling and embossed floral designs to the final finish. this showroom allows the imagination to stretch its creative muscles. Finally, the functionality of the space works as seamlessly as the visual impact, creating the warmth and comfort that this important room must provide for its occupants.

Showrooms. Exposed corners have decorative ovolo edges. The wood mullions used on the glass doors and repeated on the solid wood doors were a design created just for this display. The main countertop is silver cloud granite with an integrated soapstone apron sink. The bar ledge and footrest are both made of a dark soapstone. The upper cabinet tops are made of wood that match the cabinets. The refrigerator is built in behind antique glass doors with the wood mullion detail applied. Gail Drury cheers

European Excellence

Fri 12 2008

Showrooms. Ventilation needed to be designed with high efficiency as well as visual appeal. Large blowers were mounted on the roof and custom hoods decoratively designed to feature three stainless steel cylinders over the island and an immense curved half circle on the back wall. White lacquered cabinets are contrasted with charcoal work tops fabricated in maintenance-free engineered stone with a flamed textured surface. The accent color of watery blue is featured in glass tile on the backsplash and matching enameled lava stone at the bar seating. Cheryl Hamilton-Grayeuropean-excellence

Master Suite/Bathrooms. The cherry wood cabinetry and casework fit with the traditional and masculine side of the aesthetic. For the female client, a glazed paint finish in white was used for her seating area and furniture piece with towel storage and a hamper near the shower. These pieces also have cabriole feet and furniture sides. The mirror at this seated area is delicate and very detailed, also hinged with jewelry storage behind. There are many specific storage areas with many organizational accessories in the cabinetry. The vanity sink areas have many drawers and the wall cabinets have outlets inside them. Wendy R.
