This new construction home was designed for the residents to a tee. From the wall color to the hardware, custom furniture and high end lighting, every detail was hand picked to reflect the resident’s love of relaxation, texture and culture. Refreshing linens dress the bedrooms and neutrals tones warm the walls. Natural elements were used in abundance like stone and wooden beams from a reclaimed Canadian barn. Take a look at these photos, using the arrows, of the most comprehensive project from Finishing Effects’ Pam Fruhauf.
The Living Room
Gorgeous wooden timbers reclaimed from a Canadian barn were used as beams in the main living room.
Luscious linen chairs are paired with monochromatic silk pillows in the sun filled living room.
To add texture and interest the custom built in shelving has been lined with natural grass cloth. Another example of how texture can add variety even when similar tones in color and neutrals are used through out a space.
A collection of heirlooms, antique and sentimental pieces grace the entryway.
An ink and quill drawing done by their daughter is custom framed and hung like a gallery show stopper above special wedding gifts from family and friends.
The Dining Room
During the building process the dining room was expanded to accommodate this rustic wood table that has been with the family for years. A chrome and lucite chandelier balance the rustic aesthetic of the table and natural scenery of the custom oil painting, and the mirror allow the light from the window to bounce around the room.
Intricate ironwork along the staircase to the lower level.
Custom cabinetry stores and displays dishes in the light and sophisticated kitchen. Glossy grey subway tile dresses up the back splash and bring your eye to the Wolf stove below the contrasting herringbone pattern. Carrera marble covers the countertops and large island which is perched on contrasting dark carved wood with coordinating seating for entertainment.
A soothing blue covers the walls of this plush and bright office. Furniture was chosen for functionality with out sacrificing style and quality. Again, family heirlooms and childhood art work are sprinkled around the space.
The Lower Level
The down stairs living area was designed as a cozy space to gather around a lit fire.
Pops of color are added through accessories like vases, throws and pillows.
A Serene Guestroom
A guest room with a seaside vibe awaits visitors.
The exterior of the home features several patios and gathering spaces complete with masonry, stone, succulents and sculptures.
