A 1920’s Colonial home with beautiful bones in the lovely Pemberton Heights Area receives a much-deserved refinement both inside and out. To enhance the grand scale of the rooms and to unite the rooms, a palette of neutral colors was created. A rich, warm white was chosen for the exterior wood siding and for all of the gorgeous interior millwork of wainscots, crown molding and dentil ornamentation. Drywall areas were painted with a hue the color of pale champagne. Exterior doors, shutters and other smaller details were painted black to contrast and define. Tall breezy panels of white linen were placed at tall, elegant French doors leading out to charming small gardens of red roses. In the large spacious rooms, furniture was edited, rearranged and slipcovered. Shutters were opened to allow sunwarmed light to enter. Seagrass rugs were placed over the solid pecan floors, further uniting the rooms and adding a delicious and faint scent of sweet straw to the home.
More work to come on this lovely old home. Projects in progress include a glamorous remodel of the Guest Bath and key changes to the Kitchen.
Traditional raised panel cabinets with a small, shallow cabinet installed over the toilet to create balance. A wall of millwork!
The wood floor adds warmth to the cool white surfaces of the porcelain fixtures, the white subway tile and the Carrara marble.
A Carrara marble surface with a polished nickel faucet set work with the Schonbeck light fixtures to create a most elegant look. The Swarovski crystals on the lighting fixtures sparkle whether off or on.
Three niches cut into the wall and covered in subway tile with a bottom surface of Carrara marble for either display or for holding all of the items you need when showering!
