Renovations Celebrates Family Legacy
Having a beautiful backyard surrounded by lush landscape, the homeowners made the lifestyle decision to be outside as much as possible. They were looking to double the size of the family room and add an outdoor living space. Also, on their wish list, was a complete remodel of the second-floor master bathroom.
To keep the proportion of the house in balance, our designers wrapped around the kitchen the new expansion of the family room. This layout allowed the entire entertaining area to be centered around the new outdoor cooking and sitting, overlooking the much-desired view of the landscape. The new floor-to-ceiling windows surrounding the family room maximize the natural light and bridge seamlessly the outdoors to indoors.
On the second floor, innovative thinking and technology define the new spa like master bath. Etched copper sinks and oil-rubbed bronze faucets were chosen to decorate the vanities that flank a classic European freestanding tub with grace, while the opposite wall reveals a distinctive shower with state-of-the-art amenities. The double glass doors open into the shower that flows with modern utility. While the fixtures match the classic style of the room - for optimum functionality the body sprays were intentionally placed opposite to the handheld shower unit.
The new design and layout of both floors allow the continuity of materials and finishes to lend harmony and cohesion to the home’s interior and exterior. The experience of the spaces is anything but ordinary!
