The beginning ambitions for this Town & Country based project were to convert an outdated, traditional 1980's builder-grade ranch into a warm, luminous environment. The clients' background in politics, and their unique oxblood chesterfield sofa was the inspiration for this Classic Americana, Ralph Lauren style design. The goal was for the home to emulate a 100-year-old cottage, with layers of red, white, and navy, complete with timeless details such as warm woods, unlacquered brass, bronze, stainless steel, and marble. One of the greatest tasks this project presented was brightening up a house that had very little natural light. We achieved this by replacing the existing garden window with three new, functional windows that meet the counter top. We offset the windows with decorative sconces and added more than enough light with a nautical, globe pendant over the breakfast table. To keep with the integrity of the design, we upgraded the recessed can lights to new colonial inspired fixtures. The faux beams and wood paneling mimic the ceiling details in the Living Room, while creating symmetry and balance. We made the Kitchen more navigable by eliminating the peninsula and instead creating a custom, furniture-like island in a contrasting wood, topped with Grecian marble. Our intention for this focal piece was for it to be as functional as it was beautiful by incorporating deep drawers for storage, and inconspicuous shelving to stow away pots & pans. To continue the seamless aesthetic, the existing pantry and built in desk were converted into a wall of cabinetry, concealing a built in microwave, paneled in refrigerator, coffee station, and pantry.
