About the Winning Project:
The challenge was to create a functional and comfortable master bedroom retreat, from what was originally a sleeping porch in an early 1890’s farm house. A poor remodel done in the late 1980’s left an awkward closet that bumped into the bedroom.
Eliminating the bumped out closet was the first challenge. This was achieved by harvesting 3 feet from the guest room that backed up to the north wall of the bedroom.
Creating cohesiveness within these spaces was very important. The solution was to completely panel the vestibule and north bedroom wall, concealing the closets behind.
Using many of the clients' existing furniture pieces, the next task was to select flooring, lighting, drapery and bedding.
The master bathroom remained within the original footprint, but needed a update.
This treatment created a look of understated elegance, yet still connected with the architecture of the home.
Carrara subway tiles were used to surround tub and shower.
Retrofitting an antique cabinet into a sink cabinet brought character and charm into this small space.
