The Full Story About
NSH Coastal Elegance
For this space, it was important to maintain a traditional design aesthetic while pulling colors from the outside scenery and highlighting the spectacular view. The client was also invested in high-end appliances and finishes.
We embraced coastal features with full height quartz with veining that mimicked the movement of shore outside, and polished nickel and antique mirror accents gave a nod to the water’s reflective nature. Creamy whites mixed with a custom stained island brought in warmth to the space.
The secret walk-in pantry was hidden by a paneled, antique mirror door, which provided a reflection of the beautiful view outside. The soft green cabinetry mixed with the light tones of the Ash wood countertop play off of colors in the kitchen while still keeping the space distinct.
For all four of the primary bathrooms and the two powder rooms, quartz brought elegance, sophistication, and a clean aesthetic.
The intention for the laundry room was to create good flow in a long, narrow space. It was also important to include a natural spot for the television.
To create a clean and soothing design, a custom quartz farm sink with drying board was added. Full height quartz as the backsplash and behind the washer and dryer create a clean, seamless look. Custom pull out drying racks also add necessary functionality.
A built-in buffet was built with a polished wood top to include in the Dining Room. Built-ins were also included to flank the stone fireplace with back-lit quartz and stained wood. An office bookcase with secret door passage to a storage room, a den room built-in with a coordinating fireplace clad in Cambria Quartz, and a custom designed table top and table base to create a breakfast nook with the curved seating bench rounded out the home’s comprehensive built-in aesthetic. Ceiling light fixtures were designed to match the fireplace built-ins with back lit quartz and chandeliers suspending from them.
The clients wanted a grand entrance that would enhance what one would find inside. We drew inspiration from the movement of the water from the backyard shore to design two barn doors: one for a primary bath and another for 'her' closet. A similar concept was brought to the French door custom panel design.
