Light saturated living room

A fresh take on an old space. We designed the custom built-in cabinets and newly created mantel in this 1901 Craftsman. We added a rich textured grass cloth in the 2 story entry to create some warmth and add dimension to the space. The beautifully restored wood casings and trim have a warm glow that creates an inviting space for this family.

Is the speaker on the bookself the clients idea or the AV guy's? - I have an idea book on our Houzz page that talks about using bookshelf speakers instead of in-ceiling speakers for sound quality advantages. I've noticed while looking through many of your projects that you're clients are doing exactly that, which is surprising. Electronic Essentials did work on another project of yours. By chance are they who you use on a regular basis?

We worked closely with the AV provider in this century old home's remodel to ensure we didn't apply too high tech feel throughout the home. Thanks for taking a closer look at our portfolio.

This is gorgeous. I googled "Chippendale fretwork molding" (for a ceiling treatment), and this came up. I've long been one of your fans and followers. Great work!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Shawn Gauthier added this to Understated Texture: Grasscloth in the Home
Always take into consideration everything the eye can see from each space. Though the stairs are in a separate room, they’re in clear sight when you’re relaxing in this seating area. By papering them in grasscloth, onlookers won’t feel bored with the view. Design tip: In high traffic spaces such as entry or hallways, apply clear strips at the outside corners of the walls to keep grasscloth from fraying.
Vanessa Brunner added this to Designing With Nature's Perfect Shape
Take a careful look at this home, and you'll see an octogon on the chair and a hexagon on the built-in cabinet.
