swanky split-level

in progress- full house remodel

This project was a remodel for the main floor of this 80's split-level. We were asked to help a growing family turn their new home from drab to dazzling.  All the walls in the main house were beige so we brightened up the palette with white walls and painted the wood beams a contrasting dark charcoal to emphasize the volume and architectural character of the space. A soft, warm gray was used to accent the fireplace wall. Furniture and accessories were brought in with bright poppy colors and a mix of luxurious and rustic materials.  

 

A new 8' fir scissor door replaced the sliding glass door, opening up the space to the outdoor covered patio.  A fir entry door with ribbed glass was put in place along with new fir doors throughout the house, replacing the existing Craftsman style doors.The existing fireplace was remodeled with an asymmetrical design adding grandeur and focus to the sunken living room. The fireplace was faced with a dark slate tile to complement the beams and topped with a walnut mantel. A beautiful sputnik chandelier adds drama to the dining room along with a graphic rug, and custom powder coated Tolix chairs for a punch of color. Our favorite piece in this project was hanging the enormous Pegasus sign the couple had tucked away, above the fireplace as a dramatic focal point for the living room. A swanky turquoise sofa and metallic shag rug were added in the sunken living room to compliment the couple's existing furniture. Two existing club chairs were reupholstered in a bright orange felt, while an existing high-backed danish chair was recovered in a neutral leather. 

 

Other plans for this project include adding foliage, artwork and accessories to finish the spaces, family room, kitchen nook and guest room design. This project is yet to be completed, but we have posted several progress pictures.
