We worked with the client to gradually update spaces of her home, starting with the breakfast nook and master bathroom. The breakfast nook is the focal point as you enter the home, so we selected a table with a sculptural, decorative base and extending round top. The circular backs of the chairs mimic the circular detail of the table base, but we decided on a lighter finish as to not distract from the focal view of the base. We added fresh paint colors and updated the custom window valances. A designer’s trick, we mounted valances so the bottom would just drape of the top of the window frame, making use of the negative space above the window and adding height to the room.
We reworked the master bath to feel like an extension of the master bedroom to create an experience of a true master suite. In keeping with the already completed bedroom, we wanted the bathroom to feel soft and feminine. We worked with the existing floor tile, garden tub, and shower. We designed the custom vanity to look like a piece of furniture with a turned leg and half post flanking either end. We chose the latte quartz countertop for its subtle movement that is reminiscent of oyster shells. To bridge the gap between the existing oil-rubbed bronze tub and shower plumbing fixtures and the new bright silver-finished mirror and artwork, we incorporated mixed metals, selecting a soft champagne vanity light and muted copper cabinet pulls. The client loved the oversized beveled frame mirror with silver beaded accents. Not only visually beautiful, but it helps to enlarge the space by refracting light at different angles. We also added crown molding above to complete the suite transformation.
