Lake Residence

Carefully nestled among old growth trees and sited to showcase the remarkable views of Lake Keowee at every given opportunity, this South Carolina architectural masterpiece was designed to meet USGBC LEED for Home standards. The great room affords access to the main level terrace and offers a view of the lake through a wall of limestone-cased windows. A towering coursed limestone fireplace, accented by a 163“ high 19th Century iron door from Italy, anchors the sitting area. Between the great room and dining room lies an exceptional 1913 satin ebony Steinway. An antique walnut trestle table surrounded by antique French chairs slip-covered in linen mark the spacious dining that opens into the kitchen.

Door hardware - If I have dark bronze doors and windows, will a silver finish work on the interior and exterior door hardware. My light fixtures are polished nickel. Or should I use an oil rubbed bronze. What color is the interior door, or is it clad. Thank you.
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

In this situation we opted to do a white bronze finish on the hardware on the interior and a bronze finish on the exterior. We carefully mixed silver tones, with iron and bronze throughout the interior to give the home an eclectic flare.
