2013 REMY Interior Specialty Gold - *All Star*
2013 Remodel of the Year; Interior Specialty Award Winner: Grand Library. Our first conversation concerning the Grand Library occurred at the Remodeling Show. Our clients spoke of wanting to create the perfect room to read and relax. They also spoke of changing the main entry to make it "more grand". The design phase took three months and involved the clients, our designer, cabinet maker and our lead carpenter. We also relied on the knowledge of our window, door and trim distributor when making selections. The Grand Library involved a complete demo of all finishes. The design team created a French country theme for the entry transitioning through a 48" pocket door opening into the library. Material selections for the grand staircase included hand forged iron balusters with copper highlights. Red oak was chosen for all of the staircase wood, interior doors and trim. The red oak looked incredible when stained and glazed. Three lighter to darker shades were installed to create the deep transition of color and the match up we were looking for with the cherry cabinets in the library.
