Living Room

A large bay window is a welcoming feature of the private entry court to the residence. Accent elements of copper, stone, and leaded glass bring character to this informal cottage. To maintain the intimate scale in the larger interior spaces, I included small sitting alcoves as well as color, texture, and details to the ceilings.

Interesting story. Our finish carpenter had some maple sitting in his yard for a long time. He knew someday there would be the perfect project for it. He suggested it for the mantle and the island bar counter. Perfect. A good team will make the project better.

it was a frazee stain. the key was to bleach the douglas fir before putting up samples. it takes most of the red out of the wood which allows for more staining options. Select color by samples, even photos can be misleading.
