The Passage

Before Siemasko + Verbridge got their hands on this house, it was a convoluted maze of small rooms and skinny hallways. The renovation made sense of the layout, and took full advantage of the captivating ocean views. The result is a harmonious blend of contemporary style with classic and sophisticated elements. The “empty nest” home is transformed into a welcoming sanctuary for the extended family of kids and grandkids.

What is a good wall color to use with maple color wood. - We would like to paint fresh, something light. I thought about his color, but it says used mainly with lighter, cooler woodworking.

Thanks for your question. Wood types vary as well as the stain you choose. This is a very neutral color and can be used in many places. We suggest testing out some samples of your flooring against different colors and look at it in different light in the room, artificial and natural. This will help you find the right color for you're specific room.

This room divider is custom. The fabric came from Zimmer-Rohde and was part of the Etamine collection.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

On the top floor, the husband's office enjoys ocean views and transforms into an extra guest room when necessary. Just out of view to the left are built-in shelves and a desk for him. In the foreground, two chaises can transform into twin beds for sleepover guests. "We added the drapery so that overnight guests can pull it for a sense of privacy," says Verbridge.

Create New RoomsBlessed with a large living space but unsure how to create smaller, interchangeable spaces within it? Curtains are a clever and temporary solution for creating new spaces without building walls or closing spaces off. Sheer curtains in particular are ideal, and will help to section off lounge or dining areas from the house without restricting light or fresh air to thespace. For a simple and elegant look, keep the curtain texture and colour as subtle as possible.
