Have you ever imagined purchasing a home, and transforming it exactly the way you dreamed? After walking into the foyer of this magnificent home, you feel an instant gratification of grandeur and fantasy. Every corner is detailed with artistic perfection, and no square foot is left behind, this house is a perfect Jewel Box. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to document the transformation, enjoy the pictures below:
The entry-hall and grand stair case: the paneling was added to add some drama and detail.
Formal living fire-place was simple cast stone, now upgraded with intricate wood paneling, enhanced with the Swedish color palate.
I can’t wait to see where this goes…
This bar is made from a black forest antique hutch, some of it is original antique, and some is brand new. Can you tell which is which? I can’t….
I can get lost in all the details, one of the characteristics I love about European antiques.
The study doors, first coat.
Wine fridge surround: they took terra cotta pipe, and transformed it into wine storage!
Refrigerator surround, just the bones.
A peak of some of the kitchen cabinet doors: steel doors from French pastry tables.
Ceiling detail in powder bath.
Powder bath sink.
Cabinet in powder bath, this piece reminds me of a fairy tale.
These rosettes on the drawers are just another example of the endless details.
Not your average laundry room.
More paint coats to come.
Doors to Master Suite.
Ceiling in Master Suite.
Master Suite continued.
The detail takes hours, but worth every minute.
“His” vanity in master bath.
"Her" medicine cabinet.
A view of the kitchen from the family room.
Upstairs guest, there wasn’t room for side tables, so they just built this beautiful surround, so Swedish!
A close up of the upstairs surround.
An upstairs bath vanity.
