Gladstone Blvd N - Part 2
Planning a multi level addition, a second one-story addition, and a whole main floor remodel takes a lot of selection meetings, contractor meetings, measures, quotes, re-quotes, re-selects... I think you get the point.
We planned for a solid 5 months before anything actually happened construction wise. The client's new that it would be a long process, but I think telling someone something and actually having them do it really brings a sense of how many moving parts there are.
Here's a peak into how we planned. First, we take measurements and plan how the new space will be used, what's important that we have to find a way to make work.
We then do autocad drawings to submit for cabinetry. Selections get started and the plan starts to create a vision of what will soon come to life.
KITCHEN AND DINING ROOM ADDITION:
The clients pretty much gave me complete design control. I knew they wanted it to feel like new construction, have a couple show stopping features to wow their guests, and to showcase the beautiful pond/wetland view that frames the whole back of their house.
I threw ideas of white to brighten, warm floors to tie in the current trim, casing, doors, and connect them so we don't have to switch out everything, thus increasing the budget and timeline.
DESIGN MOOD BOARD:
BUTLER'S PANTRY, LAUNDRY ROOM, LOCKER AREA, AND STORAGE ROOM:
I loved the idea of carrying the theme of the taupe and navy throughout the space and highlight with mixed metals of black and gold. I also wanted the surprise elements to come from lighting and wall paper. I love, love, love lighting and they were all in for letting me chose fun, unique fixtures.
