At the top of Carrie's wish list (understandable given the fact that she has THREE teenage boys) was storage (for media equipment, games, books, etc.) I wanted to get a feel for the look she was after, so I showed her the following pictures of built-in cabinetry:
We thought this one was interesting, especially given that the back of the shelving has been painted in a darker colour. Hmmm...1
This one was also cool - ample storage, but maybe a little too contemporary for her overall aesthetic? 2
This one boasts clean, simple lines and minimal detail. Lovely, but again, a little too modern. 3
Wow! What a gorgeous space! We loved many elements of this design - we can feel that a decision is right around the corner. 4
We loved the clean lines, the flat shaker profile on the cabinets, the antique bronze hardware, and just the warmth - doesn't it look inviting? I would love to pick a book from one of those shelves and curl up in a cozy chair beside it to read.
I will be back soon to share further details with you about this project.
Have a great weekend!
