The abstract millwork in the entryway pulls guests into the main spaces of the home. On the wall opposite the millwork, a series of photographs help to showcase the homeowners' love for art as well as their personality.
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.
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.
One of the most effective ways to highlight custom or historic millwork, such as trim or ceiling beams, is with contrasting white paint. To accentuate the original millwork in this 1920s bungalow, its walls feature muted shades of blue while its trim is a bright shade of ultra white.
Useless walls enclosing tight spaces were removed to provide welcome openness. Gayler Construction added custom millwork to lend sparkle and distinctiveness. The result is a cohesive, light, airy and far more functional space.
This section of the modern living room is a great space for entertaining and television viewing. A large, neutral sectional and two brown, modern chairs provide plenty of seating, while custom millwork frames the television making it a stylish part of the space's design.
Craftsman-style trim and custom millwork lends a well-established look in the kitchen of a new-construction home. Designer Jamie House selected a soft mint color for the cabinetry to add depth to this bright, light space and chose over-scale pendant lights to balance the scale of the large island.
Plum painted custom millwork with blue tie-ins and traditional furniture provide a unique and inviting farmhouse style room to make guests feel comfortable and at home. “Purple is a really hard color to work with, but plum is purple with just enough brown in it to make it a little more on the new neutral side,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.
