Designer: Nathan Taylor
We were asked to update a dated kitchen to feel crisp, clean and modern using existing knotty pine cabinets and taking into consideration our busy home of 6.
The first step was to change the traffic flow to create better functionality. The original island was cut down to one level. Open display areas were closed with new doors, and leathered granite was added. The countertop was also lengthened to accommodate seating at the north end and to make the west side more open. New flooring, backsplash, stainless farmhouse sink, pendant lighting, chandelier and hardware were all added to complete the updated simple and clean look. A custom farmhouse table was made for a very narrow space and was built to accommodate the family of 6. Collectables from both sides of the family were incorporated to add the personal touch to this new space.
Create a master suite that is multi-functional and durable wine retreat with great style.
We started with custom bedroom furniture designed by J. Martin of BridgeBlue Sourcing Partners which set the natural tone for the master suite. One hundred year old wood, clean lines and oversized pieces create a timeless look. We selected colors and materials to complement each other, yet add texture and depth, blended with natural materials such as the slate subway tile featured behind the tub. We chose a beautiful copper air tub with a table large enough for a glass, bottle, and a book. Custom mirrors from Prima Design Source, designed by J. Martin, and new lighting add the handmade crude detail to the sleek floor tile and plain glass. Heated floors, heated towel bar, dimmable lights, and a second vanity were important additions to create the perfect retreat for a busy mother of four.
Nathan and his design team did a beyond superb job with remodeling and designing a new master bath, kitchen, mudroom, and two guest baths. I’m certain that there’s no one else that could’ve done a better job than him. I have full confidence in home and his ideas. He’s made my home into a place I’ve always dreamed of, but never thought I’d have.
