Orleans Drive Estate Reveal #2: The Design

Simple yet luxurious living defined the design. Our client loved sleek lines, brass details and simple, starck designs. This style starts at the front door. A simple yet overscaled metal and glass door set the tone and excitement of wanting to see what else lies inside. The dark-painted ceiling in the entryway was a simple way to create extra drama and give a backdrop for the light fixture as you look up. The trim work added a refined and finished touch and balances the tumbled dark brick floor.

Beyond the entry, you will find the family room and kitchen. We made sure to incorporate the newest products in tile and lighting to create a sense of class, sophistication, and style for these key areas of our client’s dream home. The kitchen is quite simple in design but has a show stopper hood design that centers the entire space and we brought in the class by incorporating a gorgeous backsplash tile that is white etched marble with gold paintwork inlayed into the material.

The master bath design from the architect centered the shower so we wanted to play this detail up and incorporated a grid design into the shower glass. This adds contrast and plays into the simple geometric lines seen throughout the home.

The kid bathrooms were a fun place to play up the detail and tile work. For the girls’ bath, we went with a veined gray tile, the request was ‘nothing too feminine and a sleek modern look. Contemporary cabinetry, tile work, and white pendants all work together in this bathroom design. For the boys’ bath we added drama utilizing the stark white and black contrast and then had fun with tile shapes from the penny round on the floor to the picket fence tiles in the shower.

The simple and stately details carry throughout the areas of the home from the mudroom, hall storage cabinetry, and of course the indoor basketball court. Contrast and shape were played up in what could have been a boring hall and mudroom but instead pattern, contrasting cabinetry, sleek hardware adds to the appeal of these spaces creating a whole home design where every corner is thought through and adds to the overall appeal of the house.

This project was not only enjoyable to design but it was fun to see our client follow the designs and be an amazing general contractor. We were honored to be part of creating this dream home for a great family!
