I am so happy to report that my Charleston project is advancing nicely…it is so great to see everything come together the way I envisioned it.
Even though this is an historical home (1854) my client wanted some contemporary touches. We blended a little bit of both.
Chandeliers/Lighting are up:
Transitional pendant for the kitchen:
This is an old piece from the 1930′s…Machine Age inspired. Perfect for a masculine bedroom. I had the candle covers changed and the rewired so the wire was less obtrusive.
I’ll post a pic when it gets hung.
Very unique antiqued mirrored star pendants. Love the edison bulb. These are for the 3rd floor guest room hallway.
Eurocave wine refrigerator being installed in the Butler’s Pantry:
Lamps, Lamps, Lamps! We have opened the boxes from the Charlotte House and are in the midst of deciding what will go where.
A Before Picture…Kitchen Facelift:
And right where they are standing…Tile Backsplash up in the kitchen and leathered Absolute Black Counter top.
Remember the Master Bathroom? (vaguely resembled a La Quinta Inn before we took a jackhammer to it).
Last week: Tub is in, shower is in….it’s getting there. We added this window.
The light fixture is an antique piece that was a gas/electric conversion piece. People were “nervous” about the reliability of electricity so the smaller arms were gas. I had the whole thing electrified.
No small trick installing on a slanted ceiling! My brilliant contractor constructed a shim.
A peek at the shower floor:
Back in February, taping out the vanity.
There was a Jack and Jill situation that made the bathroom feel cramped and disjointed. I took down the wall and designed a peninsula vanity with a counter to ceiling mirror with a sink on either side.
Putting up the “wall” that will house the counter to ceiling mirror:
Locating the sconces that will “float on the mirror”
That’s it for now…as always I’ll keep you posted. If you want to read more about this project, go here.
I’ll be working in Atlanta this week! Trips to ADAC and great seminars with Charlotte Moss and Suzanne Kasler at Design Defined.
I hope your week is inspired!
