So this is what I love about my job: Going from this…..
A simple concept sketch, given over to some of the most remarkably talented craftspeople around – it’s like magic! The cabinetmaker, Jared Whitson, found some hardwood palettes up in the clients’ attic during construction. Knowing my cool clients Suellen and Rick were searching for ways to incorporate a “Spanish rustic” look to the wood elements of their home, he made the island out of this reclaimed wood.
Here is a closeup, showing the slightly rough edges of the solid wood boards, giving relief to them…..
…..and a detail – wooden peg and character to the back drawer…..
And here is another one…..
Love what they did with it.….
The idea was to “pull the wood through” into the kitchen, by deleting some overhead cabinets, and adding back some rough hewn wooden shelves. Love…..
…..especially the wooden pegs…..
And here’s one I had nothing directly to do with – save to refer Master Craftsman Extraordinaire Tom Ferris to the project…..
It’s the fireplace mantel! (Never mind the room itself is stunning….. Hats off to architect Susan Hager for a beautiful job.)
So in case you didn’t know, if you want to ring my bell, just bring in the reclaimed wood…..
