2011 Showcase - Hillside Retreat

A European-California influenced Custom Home sits on a hill side with an incredible sunset view of Saratoga Lake. This exterior is finished with reclaimed Cypress, Stucco and Stone. While inside, the gourmet kitchen, dining and living areas, custom office/lounge and Witt designed and built yoga studio create a perfect space for entertaining and relaxation. Nestle in the sun soaked veranda or unwind in the spa-like master bath; this home has it all. Photos by Randall Perry Photography.

My guess is a router on a piece of trim (like a rounded T).

Cubbies should be *around* 2' wide. Look for a drawing board article in Fine Homebuilding on mudrooms. There should be at *least* one of them.

I want a floor that does not need a great deal of maintenance. My understanding is that slate requires lots and chips easily? What type should we be looking at?

The CleftStone Works
Hi Faith,

Slate, and most natural stone floors are very low maintenance, you can expect them to wear very well.

Our favorite tip is to use a good subsurface sealer, and then wash the surface with a soap based cleaner, like Murphy's Oil Soap. The stone will develop a patina, and become essentially permanent, and require nothing more than sweeping and an occasional damp mop and buff. Think of how much traffic stone floors get in hotels, city spaces and the like,. In Europe and Asia, you can see stone floors that are more than 1000 years old!

It's a misnomer that slates chip easily. Some softer stones like Indian Multicolor may dust or chip a bit until they settle in, but mostly that is a non issue after it is installed.

The Decor Cinza, and any number of other cleft slates and stones are very durable. You can think of them as being like Denim or Leather, compared to fabrics. Very practical, and much more warm, natural and comfortable looking compared to a porcelain tile.

Are the lockers attached to the bench with something like biscuits or pocket hole screws or do they just rest on the bench? I am almost ready to assemble ours and not sure how to proceed. You don't see any gaps on yours. Looks good. Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Beige
Beige walls with a dark beige trim. Painting trim darker than the walls is the opposite of what most people do, and it always looks fresh and modern — even here, with traditional wainscoting and other flourishes.
This room is mostly trim and very little wall. The colors are not an exact match, but they are close enough to create that soothing, restful look.
