My client is an amazing cook and she loves to entertain so the kitchen had to be done first. She wanted a clean look with a funky vintage edge to it. How fun!!! We used Carrara for the counter tops and I was lucky enough to find slabs that were 2” thick (from Empire Marble & Granite) so there are no seams on the edge detail. We kept the original cabinets painted them white, (the previous owner had them dark), gave the walls a fresh new color, new lighting, new flooring, new appliances and voila she has her dream kitchen. Oh, the rugs are from my “Vintage Rug Collection” to tie it all together.
I’ve remodeled a lot of bathrooms in my career but this bathroom is by far one of my favorites. As you can tell from the before pictures this bathroom needed a lot of help. We designed the bathroom around the mosaic on the floor. The mosaic is a dogwood pattern from Waterworks and it is so beautiful. When my client’s budget allows it I prefer to buy all my slabs from Empire Marble & Granite. The slabs they have in their yard are flawless and they have the most beautiful and unique pieces of marble and granite I have ever seen. The slabs I used in the master bath are polished royal Danby and Waterworks just happened to have the matching 18 x 18 royal Danby for the shower so it was a match made in heaven. We accessorized with a vintage romantic French look and my clients are very happy with the results.
I try to use wallpaper as much as possible in a larger home because I feel that you need to add the color, pattern and texture to keep it interesting. The wallpaper I used in the powder bath is from Hinson & Company a Deborah Danser Design “Edo Pines” and it looks fantastic. The colors are taupe and cream with a pewter background.
That’s it for now for my North Ranch project. We are still working on it so there will be more pictures to show you in the next couple months. I hope you enjoyed it and I would love to hear your feedback
