We are working with the amazing TDR Woodcraft on this project and have designed some great millwork for this home – A LOT OF IT. (Ahhh!) Below are our millwork elevation sketches – which will give you a sense of where we are going with all the built-ins in the home.
I took a small risk and chose to paint the Kitchen, Main Bath and Back Bath cabinetry a beautiful grey with a slight greenish undertone – HC-108 Sandy Hook Gray.
The Bench Seat, Desk, Window Seat, Closet Built-in, Laundry, Boot Room cabinetry and Media Unit will all be sprayed in White Dove – OC-17, a crisp clean colour.
As mentioned before, we are doing this beautiful Kitchen Island from Restoration Hardware – made from solid reclaimed pine timbers that are 100 years old – a piece that I am so excited about.
TDR Woodcraft had built a beautiful white oak kitchen island and bathroom vanity for their own home – that he and his wife had designed themselves – so beautiful in fact – I am requesting a similar one for our Ensuite Bath. The tone is quite similar to this reclaimed island, and will be a nice way to again pull this theme into another part of the home, and it will not have a stone top, but rather have a wood top and act more as a piece of furniture. We are also adding a solid fir top to the desk and the boot room bench – and TDR Woodcraft will be putting a fir veneer on our beam as we didn’t have the timeline to wait for a fir beam. I have to say that I am so excited for all of this amazing millwork – mostly because of the quantity of work that TDR does, but also because of ALL THE STORAGE! Woot woot woot! Goodness knows that with three children, and two crazy parents – you need all the storage you can get!
