Details Make the Difference

Over the course of the last couple of months, Ben has been hard at work on a main floor remodel for some fun clients.  I’ve had the pleasure of working with the stylish duo to select finishes to fit his more modern aesthetic and her traditional/farmhouse leaning style.


For the entry, we painted the door Black Magic from Benjamin Moore, to add drama and contrast against all of the white and pale gray.  A modern version of a lantern marries both styles, while giving a warm welcome.


Down the hall, I found a pair of smaller single bulb fixtures to add a bit of interest.  New five panel molded doors have cleaner lines than their original arched doors.  Simple white trim is kind of the eyeliner for the hall full of doors.


Choosing the hardwood floors was quick and painless, as we all loved this slightly gray washed wide white oak plank.  To keep the main area light and bright, we had the walls painted Crushed Ice from Sherwin Williams.  In the master bedroom, we injected a bit more personality with a wooden beaded chandelier and a dark accent wall (Peppercorn from Sherwin Williams).


Ben really loved assembling the fixture.


The new doors have matte black Latitude handles and hinges from Schlage.  In a space with so many light elements, the dark hardware is a great accent.


Looking down the hall, the stairs have a new steel horizontal railing, which is the icing on the cake.


Right upon entering the house, the fireplace and built in cabinets are a focal point from several vantage points throughout the main spaces.


We’re all in love with the deep walnut against the white of the fireplace and cabinets.


In the kitchen, brass pendants are already looking great against the in progress custom walnut vent hood cover.


Final details are all coming into place now, so I hope to have after photos sooner rather than later.
