Wanting to downsize their large, traditional estate, our clients purchased a contemporary home in Northumberland that was in need of some updating.
The last update to the home appeared to be from the late eighties to the mid-nineties. In particular, our client wanted us to address the outdated interior spaces including the living room, kitchen, bathrooms and flooring. Our client wanted their home to have clean lines, unique finishes and neutral colors, therefore, our team painted throughout and hung wallpaper. Maintaining the pine floors was also important to our client. In addition to these cosmetic updates, we re-plated the original brass door hardware in brass to bring back the original luster of the hardware.
For the kitchen, our client wanted an exclusive design for the cabinets. The cabinets were custom made to the client’s specifications, which featured a unique door and drawer style. Additionally, all appliances in the kitchen were installed panel ready, meaning they could easily be hidden within the cabinetry. This design allowed for the cabinetry to have a cohesive look by hiding the different finishes of the appliances. Updating the master bath was also part of this project. We used slab walls to surround the tub and updated the fixtures.
In the main rooms of the home, we created an abundance of ambient lighting with hidden fixtures within the crown molding. Some other custom features included building a beautiful hidden paper wrapping station and work area.
