The scope for harbor north concentrated on interior renovations. The client wanted an updated but warm kitchen with updated finishes and appliances. Just off the entry foyer the downstairs powder room needed a little facelift and upstairs the son’s bath and the master bath both needed a complete remodel.
For the kitchen the client specifically wanted an area to store and serve wine to guests. We wanted to open up the space visually so we removed upper cabinets that separated the kitchen from the eating area. Three pendant lights still offer a visual separation while not enclosing the kitchen. Preliminary renderings kept the refrigerator where it was initially, but later in the design process the refrigerator was moved to the appliance wall to open up the work space even more. Darker wood, Silestone counter tops, and a deep copper farm sink help to update the space, while maintaining desired warmth.
The downstairs’ powder room received new Trikeenan handmade floor tile and painted wood base board. To make the space a little special for guests, a free standing furniture base supports a stone vessel sink. The round mirror and bronze fixtures and accents really pull this space together. It is the finishes that make this space pop.
In the Son’s bathroom, the focal point and main change was the removal of a tub/shower combo unit and adding a large walk-in shower with dual shower heads. Clear glass shower doors were used so that the beauty of the handmade Trikeenan tile could be fully appreciated.
As seen by the before pictures of the master bath, this space was desperately in need of a facelift. There was no question that the synthetic marble tub had to go. This space needed to be relaxing. We wanted design a space that had the feel of a spa without feeling pretentious. Soothing colors and a freestanding air jet tub not only opened up this space but now helps the client to relax. The bathroom has a modern feel even with the classically styled tub and bathroom fixtures. An existing skylight adds much needed natural light to the space while new halogen recessed lights add atmosphere in the evening. A path of glass tile on the floor provides a visual axis and continues behind the tub to accentuate the beautiful tub filler. The WC and shower area was appointed with the same spa feel with clear glass shower doors, translucent stone shower floor, and dual shower heads.
