Spur Road - Edina, MN

An abundance of living space is only part of the appeal of this traditional French county home. Strong architectural elements and a lavish interior design, including cathedral-arched beamed ceilings, hand-scraped and French bleed-edged walnut floors, faux finished ceilings, and custom tile inlays add to the home's charm.

This home features heated floors in the basement, a mirrored flat screen television in the kitchen/family room, an expansive master closet, and a large laundry/crafts room with Romeo & Juliet balcony to the front yard.

The gourmet kitchen features a custom range hood in limestone, inspired by Romanesque architecture, a custom panel French armoire refrigerator, and a 12 foot antiqued granite island.

Every child needs his or her personal space, offered via a large secret kids room and a hidden passageway between the kids' bedrooms.

A 1,000 square foot concrete sport court under the garage creates a fun environment for staying active year-round. The fun continues in the sunken media area featuring a game room, 110-inch screen, and 14-foot granite bar.

The mix of wood stained and white baseboards- what guided you to choose in each room?

I apologize for being persistent...but:
Would you say that the use of painted base boards was a matter of budget or planned design?
I am on the verge of buying materials for the trim carpenter and struggle with my budget. I've done a select alder library, tv cabinet, kitchen island and cooktop hood...the question is- do you consider stained baseboards a viable luxury to consider? You did a beautiful job in this home using stained in the ?more casual rooms?...but if the customer had all the money they ever wanted for this project, would they (you) have done more stained baseboards or would you have stayed with paint grade?
I agree with you about vanilla & plain by the way...You've done what I would consider a masterful job on this house- but I was just curious about how much further you would have taken it and where...if you care to comment. Thanks!

Boils down to the balance/scale of each space and overall design theme...varying stain vs painted throughout home is more interesting!
We have the all stained study vs the mix throughout main floor creating nice flow and variation! Lower level then is a mix of dark stained doors and base with a more medium stained cabinets but with dark glaze! Finally paint grade does help keep the budget in check and ultimately overall it's personal taste.
I hope this helps!
