Transitional Style

A quick snapshot of a project in Acton Sally completed recently. The client had an architect and builder. Sally’s services were for furniture layouts and selection/specifying furniture, fabrics, color, materials, etc.

The view from the family room toward the kitchen. (My apologies for the under exposed pictures…)

Got to run… Busy day ahead… More another day…

Cheers,

Sally and I are designing a project in Wellesley managed and built by Landmark Services, who are terrific by the way. The project involves the renovation of the kitchen, powder room and mud room ares on the first floor, the family bath and master bath on the second floor and creating a home office over the garage. We’re in the thick of design development right now, with final decisions being made on all materials, finishes, plumbing fixtures, kitchen appliances, etc. I spoke briefly about the kitchen in this post.

The Master Bath is progressing nicely and I thought I’d share a sketch of the vanity. It’s an “L” shape, with full height storage on the left – both open shelves and closed storage. Once again, the cabinets are flush inset, similar to the kitchen. Note the stone base – still thinking that thru…

We’re looking at various Jerusalem Gold Limestone options for the floor, shower, wainscot and decorative tile. (This is the third master bath using this material in less than a year. Is this a trend?)

 

My vote is for the tile in image #2, with it’s variation in visual texture and tonality. I love what you could do for a backsplash in the kitchen with the tile in image #3 – a little rough and relaxed, while exuding loads of charm and sophistication.

It will be interesting to see where we all end up!

It’s finally turned cold her in New England – as cold as it’s been in over two years! All week I found myself thinking of warmer climes. While digging thru books in our library looking for wood paneling ideas yesterday, I pulled The Architecture of William Lawernce Bottomley, by Susan Frazer off the shelf. Most of the photographs are black and white. Encouraged by what I saw, I shifted my search efforts to the computer. In the midst of my search I found color images of a Virginia house he designed in the 1920′s, including these interior shots of the pool house – classic, timeless, as up to date today as it was when it was built. I absolutely LOVE the lattice work and the fireplace! There’s something ever so slightly oriental about the feel in the second image.

Wouldn’t it be nice to be lounging in one of those chairs right about now?

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
