This petite room was the perfect size for a home office. A generous storage closet and crisp built-in millwork provide all kinds of shelf space and cubbies. The bold geometric shade and modern pendant light make it a fun place to work.
The second story of this family library features a decorative domed ceiling. Intricately patterned wrought-iron rails on the multi-sided balcony offer a view of the floor below, while elaborate millwork surrounds and encloses rows of built-in bookshelves.
Although the home is newly built, the owners wanted it to have the charm and character of Southern homes from the 18th to early 20th centuries. To pull off that look, designers used six different types of casings and white painted millwork common to houses of that era.
Gayler Construction gave the owners the look they were after with a European-style range with built-in hood and decorative corbels. A black and tan fleur de lys-like tile backsplash added uniqueness, while custom cabinetry, custom flooring and custom millwork enhanced the room’s Old World appeal.
The architectural elements created in this home were a step above the rest. Textural stone on the fireplace and millwork throughout the home really made the home come alive. Having larger scaled furnishings and more built-in pieces gave the client the maximum amount of storage and seating.
An oversize modular sofa and two tailored, tufted armchairs offer ample seating in this spacious, yet cozy traditional living room. Built-in shelving offers loads of storage, as well as space to display family photos and collections. Traditional millwork abounds, including transoms above the interior doorways and a coffered detail on the ceiling.
In this renovation, designer Claire Paquin reconfigured a powder room and hall closet to make space for a mudroom the original house lacked. The clean, transitional space is light and bright, with all-white millwork and built-in storage that extends to the ceiling to maximize space. A fun, modern pendant continues the clean white color scheme.
Playful details abound - undulant baluster collars interject a sense of movement and rhythm to the stairs. Victorian, square section columns supporting the lantern transform to octagons with a wink to the Roman Doric Order.
All of the trim, brackets, balusters and columns were custom designed and then fabricated by millwork craftsman.
This completely custom guest cottage was built in only eight months time.
This multi-purpose room has clever tricks up its sleeve. The space functions as a home office most of the time, but when overnight guests are in town, a Murphy bed comes down between the bookcases. Built-in cabinets double as office storage and sleek nightstands. If the room needs more floor space, the desk also flips up to be flush with the zebrawood millwork.
This designer laundry room built by Harrison Design and decorated by Brian Patrick Flynn is packed with classic style certain to withstand the test of time. Any time you’re designing a task-related space involving high-cost items such as appliances and millwork, it’s best to stick with styles that aren’t too trendy. If a room looks too current, it’s likely to date faster.
Storage was a priority for the homeowners, who are retired and frequently host grandchildren. Built-ins are used in almost every room, so that toys and games can be easily concealed behind the beautiful zebrawood millwork. The custom banquette set into the window is one of many throughout the home but this is the favored location for the the matriarch of the family to host her grandchildren.
Crisp, white cabinetry paired with black soapstone and Calcutta marble sets the tone for this elegant, multi-functional kitchen and living area. The space is equipped with a baking center, banquette seating and glass cabinets wrapping around a corner to further defining the space. The style and millwork of the home were continued in the columns flanking the apron sink and featured detailing on the built-in snack bar.
This room is both a library and a dining room. It features a built-in bookcase with custom millwork, a buffet and niche for art. The look is modern with touches of Asian influence. The dining chairs are also custom and feature Lee Jofa linen velvet with brass nailheads on the back that complement the modern fixture above the table. The window-side table is the final custom piece with a gray marble top and steel base.
To create a restful, yet still traditional space, designers added soft textures and hues, combining a natural, woven rug with a skirted sofa to create a traditional, timeless space. To create a design that is both elegant and perfect for entertaining, watching TV and enjoying the views to the outside, the sofas were carefully arranged directly in front of the custom, built-in cabinet with traditional millwork that provides beautiful display shelves while concealing the television, adding function and elegance.
Originally built in 1901, this historic building was purchased by country singer, Miranda Lambert, and renovated into a boutique bed and breakfast. Efforts were made to salvage much of the original millwork and plaster, the entire building was rewired, and central heat and air was installed. Where the original building could not be salvaged, sheet rock was hung where original plaster walls had been, and walls and ceilings were filled out with wood. To preserve as much of the original building as possible, most of the work had to be done in the attic as well as crawl spaces between each floor.
