Ingleside - Modern 1920s Shingle Style Traditional Staircase, Grand Rapids

The challenge of this modern version of a 1920s shingle-style home was to recreate the classic look while avoiding the pitfalls of the original materials. The composite slate roof, cement fiberboard shake siding and color-clad windows contribute to the overall aesthetics. The mahogany entries are surrounded by stone, and the innovative soffit materials offer an earth-friendly alternative to wood. You’ll see great attention to detail throughout the home, including in the attic level board and batten walls, scenic overlook, mahogany railed staircase, paneled walls, bordered Brazilian Cherry floor and hideaway bookcase passage. The library features overhead bookshelves, expansive windows, a tile-faced fireplace, and exposed beam ceiling, all accessed via arch-top glass doors leading to the great room. The kitchen offers custom cabinetry, built-in appliances concealed behind furniture panels, and glass faced sideboards and buffet. All details embody the spirit of the craftspeople who established the standards by which homes are judged.

Thank you! This wainscoting was achieved with poplar detailing over drywall that was then painted with a lacquer finish. This is a great trick for getting the look for less!

Again. couple things I always talk about. One the lower third of wall, not plain and boring. Don't have a simple wall when you could use and give it character. It doesn't matter that it is little depth.
