We are getting closer and closer to installing our new home project up in Ft. Worth. This house is going to be so lovely! Our team is ready to go, and the home owner is even more anxious!
I was just there to check on progress last week and wanted to share some of the latest ‘in progress’ photos.
If you’ll remember the home’s architecture is Georgian, which is very traditional and symmetrical.
A closer up photo shows you the level of detail for the windows, railings and doors.
A solid wood front door was custom made to coordinate with the window style.
Inside, a custom iron railing was made for the entry stairs. I feel like the design is very elegant and a unique touch.
Immediately on the left is the formal dining room which is being a combination of pale blue, off white and mandarin orange! I have always wanted to do a home with a plaster ceiling design and was very thrilled the homeowners were open to investing in this feature. It makes the room!
The powder bath down the hall is getting wallpapered today. The custom chest and sink has this fabulous Kallista faucet with crystal handles. I want one of these for my office sink!
Everyone loves to see the master bath and kitchen, so a couple of quick shots of those:
The shower has amazing tile work compromised of Calcutta gold marble and a mosaic tile.
The kitchen is a classic off-white for longevity with a pale gray ceramic backsplash and an elegant light fixture over the island.
The island was a challenge in this kitchen. The home was built on the footprint of an existing home that ended up needing to be razed due to foundation issues. The kitchen was a bit tight and the homeowner wanted the sink to face the patio/pool area. That limited the space for a traditional kitchen island.
So, I sketched out the island to look more like a piece of furniture. The oval shape doesn’t take up as much room. Once it gets hardware it will look like a little gem. The countertop is Danby marble.
The homeowner wanted an apron front sink, and if you are going to do that, a Shaws sink is the way to go.
You can see the french doors to the patio just behind the sink.
Adjacent to the kitchen and family room is a lovely little sunroom or ‘library’ for the family.
Here is a view from the family room back to the kitchen.
Fingers crossed we will have a lot more to show you by the summer. We can’t wait for this lovely house to become a home.
