TGIF!!! There’s been a lot of excitement around these parts as we worked to complete not one, but two homes (Purdue & Gardenia) so our clients could move in! We still have a few punch list items left, but they both came together beautifully. Today is all about Gardenia, sharing the construction process for the remainder of the first floor, starting with the kitchen.
The kitchen and dining area are open to the living room space, anchored by a large island and featuring site-built cabinetry. The doorway off to the right leads to the mudroom, garage entrance, pantry, and laundry room.
The design plan Wild Rose Interiors put together for this space included a “tuxedo-style” paint job, with navy cabinets on the base and island and white on the upper cabinets. The countertops are a sleek quartz with bold gray veining and is complimented by a classic white subway tile for the backsplash. Two large, brushed nickel pendant lights for over the island look fantastic with the mod lighting selected throughout the rest of the first floor.
In the mud room, pantry and laundry room, you’ll find loads of additional storage and floor tile with a terrazzo look.
The master bedroom is off of the kitchen the other direction, and features a stacked stone fireplace flanked by double French doors.
The master bathroom makes a big statement from the moment you walk into the space with a freestanding tub and wrapped subway tile with a pale blue penny tile stripe that is carried into the shower. The dark window frame creates great contrast against the white tile.
The same quartz as the kitchen has been used on the split dual vanities, and are topped with undermount sinks and polished nickel plumbing fixtures. Sleek, high-tech medicine cabinets have been chosen for the mirrors for a chic modern look, and a sculptural chandelier for above the tub completes the contemporary vibe of this space.
One last room we forgot to mention last week was the first floor powder. This space has an exposed brick wall that will repeat the white-wash treatment found on the exterior and in the wine room. A star pendant hangs centered above the vessel sink that’s mounted on a quartz countertop with a cement look. The space is finished off with with a wall-mounted faucet with crossbar controls.
Next time we’ll be sharing some of the progress pictures for the Jack and Jill bathroom and the bonus room upstairs. We will also be sharing more completed photos of each space taken prior to the homeowners moving in. Hope you all have a great weekend!
