How would you describe the aesthetic of the new space?
A “modern traditional” aesthetic feels right. I intentionally avoided any heavy molding, casing, or baseboards. I also went for a hand brushed French Oak, with a natural stain, and painted all the walls white. I ordered the custom windows with a very thin, 5/8” mullion, and had them painted black. I love the look of steel windows, but they were cost prohibitive for this project, so this was my cheat in order to achieve the same look for a fraction of the cost. The spare, soothing background of the home allows for the modern element, while the custom cabinets, marble counters, and decadent lighting complements with the traditional finishes.
