By bumping out the upper level drawers and reducing the footprint of the lower cabinets, designer Bruce Snell created more storage and room to stand in thisnarrow bathroom. Nickel finishes on the Art-Deco inspired cabinets adds a sleek look.
Whatever could be salvaged and reused was incorporated into the new design. The use of reclaimed wood throughout creates an inviting space for browsing, reading, exploring and dining. Overall, there was a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of the project, with low greenhouse gas emissions related to construction and transportation of materials.
Meet a spruce with a neat and tidy footprint. Columnar Norway spruce grows 8-10 inches per year, topping out at 20-30 feet. The mature spread is a modest 6-10 feet. It boasts a low maintenance personality and holds its shape well beneath heavy snow loads. Hardy in Zones 2 to 7. Botanical name: Picea abies ‘Cupressina’
Brian made it feel part of the living space by extending the wallpaper into the nook, then arranging a low-slung banquette and small ottomans around a generous table. He kept the corner from feeling too cluttered by opting for a transparent table base to keep the footprint light. It’s the perfect spot for extra dinner guests, catching up on emails or game nights with friends from the neighborhood.
