I am working on a dining room for a young couple with a home that has fabulous bones. Here is my inspiration board.
We ended up painting the room BM Edgecomb Gray. The trim is on it’s way to becoming Benjamin Moore Simply White. Here is a sneak peek. Does this house have incredible mouldings and doors or what? This is all original! And the builtins? Count em Four!! They don’t build houses like this anymore. I am sure you know how excited I am to be working on this one.
We have made some selections on the carmel valley project that you read about here
The star of the existing house (they will tell you there aren’t many) is the beautiful lot. They are literally nestled in the trees. We call it the Tree House. This is what the view looks like from every angle all around the house.
Note the glue spots on the walls…yep it was paneled. That hideous hearth is going and will be replaced with a similar fossily slab with a chiseled edge. The ceilings will be whitewashed.
We selected this fabulous quartzite slab for the counters and backsplash, but we are not sure if it is in the budget according to our ‘budget minded contractor’.
We will be using some reclaimed wood on the range hood and the front of the island. Here is a shot of the rangehood roughed in.
The kitchen is in the center of the main floor plan. One side (the fireplace side) is for the family area. The other side is an open floor plan with a living and dining space. We selected two of these lights for over the large rectangular dining table.
Last week I went back and did a little work for a former client. We freshened up her entry with pretty perennials fabrics and started working on her bookcases. She has great style and a really good design sense. She doesn’t need too much guidance from me but we compliment one another. You will see more of that project later. Here is a sneak peek of that.
Note she had one of those giant upholstered ottomans that aren’t good for much of anything except resting your feet. We recovered it in Perennials Oh Suzannah Grey Hills https://www.perennialsfabrics.com/fabrics/colors/grey/oh-susanna-grey-hills/. We added this fabulous Happao Oversized Tray from Williams Sonoma Home which really made the ottoman more functional. I will do a full post on this house soon I promise! On Monday I am switching to WordPress (yikes!!) Maryann has had a few issues and she is way more techy than me so look for problems! Thanks for hanging in here with me. You guys are the best!!
