Built-in Bookcases Incorporated Into Foyer Columns
This creative storage space was designed by TriplePoint Design Build to accommodate books and living room knickknacks in the entryway of this remodeled home. The bookcases and columns, which were painted white to match to ceiling and trim of the home, divide the foyer from the living room. The size of the cubby space mirrors the sidelight cutouts above the front door for an interesting effect.
Forest Green Marble Countertop, Large White Farmhouse Sink and Exposed Wood Beams in Craftsman Kitchen
Deep forest green marble countertops add gorgeous color to this kitchen design. A large, white farmhouse sink is fitted into the counter below the natural light of a trio of windows. Exposed wood ceiling beams compliment the wood finish of the island fixed under the lantern pendant light with heart trim.
This project provided an opportunity to bring some authentic Craftsman ideals to this graciously aging bungalow home in a fresh and innovative way. The owners care deeply about using appropriate details and materials that would be originally appropriate to their home.
They also made it a priority to source materials manufactured in an environmentally friendly and health-conscious manner, and to employ the talents of local craftsmen wherever possible.
Wrought Iron Trim Over Kitchen Range Hood, Dark Subway Tile Backsplash With Diamond Pattern Accent Panel and Green Marble Countertop
The leather-like finish of the range hood with wrought iron nailhead trim adds immediate intrigue to this cozy kitchen design. Above the stove top, a framed diamond pattern accent panel decorates the dark subway tile backsplash that separates the built in white cabinets from the green marble countertop.
The look of the porch is transformed with fresh white paint, khaki trim, painted concrete floors and a ceiling fan in a more classic design. But the star of the new porch is the set of twin chair swings — Ben's custom take on the traditional Southern porch swing. Each is a variation on the familiar Adirondack chair design, and they were handmade by Ben using reclaimed wood from demo of one of the home's interior walls.
Neutral Craftsman Kitchen with Custom Wood Banquette
The new kitchen is bright and airy with updated lighting, new cabinetry, subway tile backsplash and lots of natural wood. Ben fashioned a custom banquette — a special request by Mackenzie as a feature that would remind her of the home she grew up in. The banquette was constructed from reclaimed wood flooring and the seating was butcher block to tie in with the wood countertops.
