Install of the Day !

Hello !!!!!

This project was one that I had been anxiously waiting to install and shoot and with a few days off I had a minute to relax and take a good look at all our hard work in these beautiful images Mekenzie took.

The Home of the Eckle's Tribe:  Kat and Landon and their five kids !  Founders of Clean Juice, I liked them immediately.  Their style, similar to my own, made this such a fun project.  They also were very decisive and trusting throughout, allowing us to really pull off this full install perfectly, down to every detail . . . .  in a matter of a few days.  Yes, I said days !  The design, purchasing, receiving and orchestrating was one of the most organized in my career history.   With the full team on hand, two big trucks and a lot of muscle we directed, shifted, hung, fluffed and styled in time for a big reveal that same afternoon and photo shoot the next morning while all fresh . . . and before the onslaught of this big family including the addition of three young visitors that will be receiving medical treatment that they cannot access in their country.. truly an amazing family.  It was crazy fun.

Leading up to the install my orchestrator, Bree was on top of every detail when it came to all the ordering and receiving of goods but more importantly the coordinating of the many, many subcontractors involved in this project.  Morgan spent many a endless day on site directing (broken foot and all) and collecting all the must have accessories that really turned this home into a completely finished project.  Thanks as well to the drive of their contractor's Tim Furr of Corbin Homes and his site manager, David.  The start to finish of this remodel took about 8 month on our end.

Without any further ado let me give you a walk through !!!!

The Entry 

My good friend Tuan of 2dash1, created this beautiful metal door leading to a custom stair banister.  I had no idea he actually built a mock up of the entire stairs to create this banister to fit perfectly.  Kind of amazing.  The foyer sets the tone for the home.  Clean, simple, organic.  
Shades of black and white mixed with wood tones.  Unique cement tile and carefully thought out furniture pieces.  Nothing fussy and not a lot of clutter.  Simple and beautiful.

We used Ben Moore's Decorator White throughout for a clean, crisp backdrop.

We went with white oak floors in a light neutral clear coat.  A little side note . . . your red oak floors won't look like this !!!  With all the renovations I am working on I am coming across having to deliver that news !  The entry has a beautiful herringbone pattern defining the space.

The Dining Room

The dining room is one of my favorites.  Kat and I decided to incorporate this amazing wood pattern wall.  Installed in sections it is such a work of art !  We opted to include just an oversized dining table, this one 72" wide to incorporate 2 end chairs on both sides and five side chairs on each (we took a few out to show of the pretty table legs in this picture).

This table !  Created by Tuan and Jacob Wolfe took about 5 guys to bring in !  Heavy and gorgeous, and another big statement piece in the space.

We decided to keep this dining room pretty minimal.  Simple black and white curtain panels and a single large root bowl centerpiece.  It's all about the family and food, and a stunning visual from the entry.

The Piano Room

The piano room is opposite the dining room.  Once a vaulted space with spiral stairs, it was enclosed to add another bedroom overhead.  Just a quite space to get away.  A huge vintage mirror I found at market, bookcase and two side chairs.

This gallery wall leads you back to the master and along side the main living space.  Simple art, family photos and fun lighting.

The Family Room

The family room and kitchen had the largest renovations done.  Again, it was vaulted, as most of these circa 1980's homes are.  It was closed up to add two more bedrooms overhead.  Beams were added and the entire fireplace wall reworked.  I really wanted to create a simple lounge space for the whole family to pile up on the sofa near the kitchen. 

The one request I had from both Kat and Landon... a huge leather sofa !  Done.  We has this custom piece made.  A large 48" inside depth back piece with a 24" deep side section.  Kid friendly for sure in leather and the perfect place to all pile together and lounge.   We loved it so much we created a "U" shaped version down in the media room below.

Wanting a clean, fresh look the fireplace now has a white stucco treatment.  We took out the built in side cabinets and opened it all up with large windows.  Love.

I added a comfortable, low swivel chair in a black and white tweed fabric and a hide side chair with great legs.

I worked on collecting all the accessories this past Market and has such fun shopping and scouting.  Found a great collection of vintage cutting boards and amazing custom pillows.

Look at all these cute kids !

The Kitchen

One of my favorite spaces.  All new and completely gutted from it's earlier state we added a T shaped island in contrasting black with while quartz counter top.  The perimeter cabinets in white with a black quart top.   Adding layers of vintage wood and brass details here and there.

The bay window now houses a built in serving multiple purposes and such a pretty view.

How much do you love this stove... showstopper.  The stucco hood and wood floaters tie the entire great room together.

Unlacquered brass plumbing mixed with simple straight black hardware and slab front cabinetry.

The Office

Landon has a little getaway office with a newly reworked fireplace wall.  I wised up and had this wood delivered install day.  A little leather chaise next to the floating fireplace.

Yep.. door closed for a little piece and quite.

A large metal and rope chandelier to fill the fault in there !

The First Floor Powder

Great little powder room off the kitchen hallway,  gutted as well with a new custom vanity, wall tile and accessories.

The Master Bedroom

Another special room with amazing wall paper, new bed, side tables.. well all of it.  How peaceful is this.  I especially love the pendant lights over the side tables.  Tip... for us girls that want a chandelier but have to have a fan.. this is a great way to have both if you choose !

Wall to wall cozy white shag . . . love love.

The Master Bathroom

Another fun room... gutted as well with great tile, gorgeous mirrors and warm custom cabinets.  How about the heart tile in the shower.. the best.

The Guest Room

Upstairs and was once the vaulted ceiling below.  A guest full of texture and pattern.  Have wanted to use this bed for a while and so happy we did.  A little black and gold check paper on the walls and clean, crisp bedding.

The Little Girl's Room

The little girl's share this space (once the vault over the piano room).  More fun paper and custom full size loft beds.  We had them made to house drawers underneath and a little crawl space under each !  With all the other fun spaces in the house and pool.. this spot... hang out .. and sleep !

We dropped pendants over each and added simple bedding.

The Baby . . . Little Boy's Room

From crib to bed in this baby to big boy room down the hall.  Loved mixing the patterns in this space as well.  A grass cloth arrow pattern paper and plaid wall to wall carpet paired with basket drum shades and metal and wood beds.  Down went all the plantation shutters throughout and up with functional burlap curtains.

The Big Brother's Room

Down the hall a little further the largest of the kid's rooms for the eldest son.  Great space for friend sleepovers ..

Iron and wood bed, another drop pendant over a shagreen side table.

Hall bathroom for the little girls with double sinks, plenty of storage for all.

The Big Sister's Room

Big Sis has the best view !  Looking over the lake in this bay window, how peaceful is this. Lots of white and great texture. 

We had this long desk aka make up table with two new sconces.  Sized to fit simple Ikea storage cabinets for all the girl stuff !

And who doesn't love a swing.

or a large wicker peacock chair.

New bathroom as well with a little pink and a little "marble" Loving the subtle colors and feel.

The Basement Lounge

Head on downstairs and the large bonus room leads out to the pool and the ultimate TV watching crash pad.  A large U shaped sectional in a soft Sunbrella fabric.  Simple, clean and not much clutter in this space.  I am sure there are many movie nights to be had in this space.

Hate for this one to end.  Dream job, dream clients.  I love that they loved everything.  It was such a fun project for us all to work on.. highlight of my year.
