I have been working with Designer Elizabeth Garrett DeWitt for years and am so excited to feature a home we worked together on. Designed by Travis Mattingly of Architectural Solutions, and built by Richard Price Custom Homes, this eclectic French influenced home is a wonderful mix of clean lines, color combinations, comfortable transitional and contemporary furnishings and art with a splash of antiques.
The office which leads from the entrance is just too pretty to close off. By using an interesting paint pallet Elizabeth was able to achieve a high end look. Because the cabinet doors are flat, the color combination of SW Agreeable Gray on the walls and SW Knitting Needles in high gloss on the cabinets give a contemporary expensive look on thier own, leaving more in the budget to spend on these wonderful furnishings and fabulous artwork by Mel Dewees.
In the dining room Elizabeth wanted to combine the clients existing antique buffet, as well as antique sconces from Joyce Horn Antiques with more modern elements.
The homeowner spends a lot of time in the kitchen so both functionality and beauty were important!! The cabinet color carries throught he main trim color SW Pure White from the rest of the home creating a nice flow throughout!
Classic Calcutta marble was used on the perimeter counters and backsplash, combined with a white quartz island. The island was designed to allow for the countertop to turn and run down the sides to the floor–stunning!!!
The homeowners had done an amazing job furnishing their previous home which gave Elizabeth a starting point in the kitchen, breakfast area. She already had four of the breakfast chairs, two barstools, and the smaller version of the classic Saarinen table. Although they added to the chairs the homeowner owned, they did decide to go with a new oval shape table due to the layout in the room and the fact that we were using a round table in the dining room.
Elizabeth, the homeowners, and myself really enjoyed working with builder Richard Price. He and his team were so organized. Richard pays great attention to detail and goes above and beyond to instill the clients happiness, which makes him not your average builder.
When there is no trim detail in a dome, a painted border feature is the perfect way to define a space. I had so much fun working on this project with the fun homeowners, designer Elizabeth Garrett DeWitt and builder Richard Price. I so appreciated being a part of this project.!!
