Good Morning!!! Hope everyone is having a great start to the holiday season. It’s always a busy time of the year personally, and professionally is no different. We’re doing a big push at our Briarmead project to ensure that the family is able to move in so they can celebrate in their newly remodeled home. So today is all about sharing the updates and design plans of where we’re at with this project.

Last time, we shared the start of the millwork and there wasn’t much progress to share in the kitchen, but now the cabinets have been built (cabinet doors and drawer fronts are being sprayed offsite) and you can get a real feel for the space. Below is what the space looked like about two weeks ago after the millwork had been primed.

Wild Rose Interiors put together the design plan for the kitchen, which includes quartz countertops accented with a marble herringbone backsplash. The walls are a soft gray while the island is being accented with a deep shade of charcoal. That same color is also being used in the wine bar area off of the kitchen, which will have the same quartz countertops, but is being accented with a stainless mosaic backsplash. Industrial lantern-style lights over the island helps to keep the line of vision from the kitchen to the living room open and airy. Acrylic stools ensure that the area does not feel too crowded once it’s fully furnished.


You’ll have to excuse the dark photos, but below shows the kitchen once it had been painted the final colors.



Before the countertops went in the guys installed the farmhouse sink, which really pops against the cool gray cabinetry. They then finished the final cuts of the countertops in the driveway before putting them into place.




As soon as the countertops are installed they are immediately covered, so we don’t have any after photos just yet on that, but we do a have a little sneak peak of the tile work in the kitchen and wine bar area.





The rest of the main living space has been primed and painted and the custom-built TV wall is coming together nicely. We love the shiplap accent and the pop of navy behind where the floating shelving will be hung. This is a great feature that really will help to anchor and balance the living room side of this open concept space.


Continuing with the first floor, there’s not a lot to see in the powder room currently, but that won’t be the case for much longer as this small space is going to pack a lot of style. From a geometric wallpaper to brass accents, this bathroom hits all the right notes for the contemporary glam style the homeowners were going for.


In the laundry room the patterned tile floor has been laid and we’ve begun to put up the subway tile accent wall. We were able to save a little money by reusing the homeowners’ black granite countertops from their original kitchen. They work perfectly in this space and would never guess they weren’t intentionally selected. The chic black and white design of the laundry room will make this space much more enjoyable to be in.

We had planned to share the tile progress in the master bathroom, which is turning out beautifully (picture floor to ceiling marble in the shower and a marble hex floor), but this post is already a bit of a doozy, so it’s probably best to save it for next time. We also have two other projects we need to share that are close to starting millwork, so expect to hear more about those soon as well. Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
