Interestingly, the floor is an oil-stained wood. Because there's no polyurethane topcoat on an oil-stained wood floor, refreshing them is as simple as applying more pigmented oil with a mop.
The staggered, aluminum-framed wall cabinets are a perfect counterpoint to the transom windows. Note how the stagger relates to the placement of the pendant lights over the island. Nice touch! The ventilation hood is a custom design.
The two-person shower picks up the tile from the tub surround and brings in another tile, this time a metallic-glaze mosaic set in a vertical offset pattern. Showers as large as this need their own lighting and ventilation, and this shower delivers on all counts.
Here's the bed from a different perspective. The headboard, bed frame and night stands are a single, custom piece of furniture, but what makes this bed really stand out are the pendant lights. Who thinks to use pendant lights in a bedroom? Michelle Wiebe, that's who.
The centerpiece of the living room is this concrete feature wall. What looks for all the world like Venetian plaster is actually a textured concrete. A good, decorative concrete fabricator is an invaluable resource when it comes to creating distinctive wall, floor and counter finishes, and Michelle swears by hers.
Centered in that feature wall is a 7-foot-long fireplace with a large flat-screen television above. The fireplace is an alcohol-burning model, and a disguised heat shield protects the TV.
Michelle Wiebe's Studio M is a design practice that's on the move, actively pursuing projects outside of their home market. Their skilled use of social media is making a lot of that expansion happen. Studio M maintains a very active interior design blog and every member of their staff has an active Twitter account. Michelle Wiebe and Studio M are clearly a design firm to watch.
