Austin Texas Residence traditional kitchen
 

Austin Texas Residence

The restoration of an 1899 Queen Anne design, with columns and double gallery added ca. 1910 to update the house in the Colonial Revival style with sweeping front and side porches up and downstairs, and a new carriage house apartment. All the rooms and ceilings are wallpapered, original oak trim is stained, restoration of original light fixtures and replacement of missing ones, short, sheer curtains and roller shades at the windows. The project included a small kitchen addition and master bath, and the attic was converted to a guest bedroom and bath.

Globus Cork Flooring has ready-cut cork with this pattern in scrumptious colors. It's in my kitchen, and is much warmer and more forgiving than tile.

Hi, Ballbright: I've noticed you've left more than one quip of displeasure regarding my answers. I think Houzz is great, and wish I could be more helpful and do push for that, but I answer to the principals of our firm and have to reflect what they and our clients are comfortable with. Hope you understand.

Counter Top - What is the name of the black counter top? It absolutely beautiful

The countertop is soapstone, which is indeed gorgeous; however, make sure to do your homework before selecting it. It is a soft material and can scratch easily. It gradually darkens as it ages, and is oiled (using only mineral oil) to help it develop an even-looking patina. It is not porous like other stones such as granite or marble, it is impermeable so actually sealing the stone is not required.

wasn't able to find it a rejuvenation - do you happen to have a item number for it?

Sorry, we don't have the item number but they were on sale at the time and have probably been discontinued. They are similar to Restoration Hardware's "Clemson Classic Pendant," but the ones we used had holophane globes: http://www.restorationhardware.com/catalog/product/product.jsp?productId=prod1509158&categoryId=cat1701013

They're handmade, in Europe where they use the metric system: the squares are 106mm x 106mm and the triangles are 104mm x 73mm x 73mm.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Geometric design has definitely enjoyed a revival. The rich colors and design of the flooring here would not have been out of place in the art deco age.
Samantha Schoech added this to Celebrate Geometry for a Sharp-Looking Design
This floor is an Escher-like pattern of diamonds and squares that become 3-D boxes. It has the traditional feel of Middle Eastern design in a wholly modern setting.
Summer Baltzer added this to 8 Ways to Dress Rooms in Art Deco Drama
7. Patterned flooring. Linoleum flooring made an appearance in most residential homes during this time. Large, geometric rugs were also widely used. Larger commercial settings often had a central design made from marble and metallic details, with a similar decorative border. Get this look: Linoleum and vinyl floors are still popular today, thanks to their low price tag and easy installation. Get creative with your installation by mixing tiles to create a dramatic pattern. If you don't like the idea of linoleum, look for art deco patterns in other materials — like the clay tile in this kitchen.
