Brushed gold, wood bring design styles together
We are in the home stretch of this beautiful custom house with many of the finishes installed from wood floors to lighting. Each lighting fixture, wood-wall treatment, hardware and tile has been installed to perfection.
The mudroom is now outfitted with a wall of wood planks and six hooks for each of the children’s jackets and backpacks. The bench below offers space to remove muddy shoes from hours of outside play on their large lot.
The laundry area has plenty of counter space for folding and sorting with its white maple cabinets. Gold brush modern hardware and white subway tiles with black grout against the walnut counters juxtapose modern and traditional design.

As a visual treat, in the middle of the house, is the staircase painted black satin with a unique silver lighting treatment ready for a funky place to hang framed classic album covers. The railing is made of metal piping to add to the edgy charm.
The black maple kitchen cabinets are installed as a dark anchor to the white and bright great room. The white marble counters and island with a marble waterfall and the wood lined face also connects the two design worlds. A large capacity refrigerator in stainless steel and industrial sized stove complete this family of eight’s home bistro.
As the final touches are put in place, all of the design details including a homework loft for the six students with built-in desk and mounted lighting are ready for the brood to use each space.
Next time: The finale!
