Sometimes our clients have a general idea of what they want for their new home, remodel or kitchen renovation, and we help them complete the vision with our best ideas and design team. For this Mid Mod story, we had a client who was extremely knowledgeable about this design narrative and she was very closely involved in every detail of the renovation.
The kitchen cabinets in this project are frameless Alder slab front. This wide organic grain style was a great fit for the midcentury look our client was seeking. We paired them with a glossy white upper cabinet that coordinated with the white stacked horizontal tile. The warm alder balances out the sleek white cabinets to give the kitchen a cohesive look. The white oak flooring unifies this space and is reminiscent of the era. We added beams to the great room as they were part of the original home before the renovation. The warm wood against the white ceiling repeats the design narrative in the kitchen, making the home feel cozy and warm.
Sometimes a client will want a specific design element for their home. Working with a design build company allows our design team to specifically draw up that element for the client’s approval. Once approved, the design is put into our online contract for everyone to review and our team to build. The fireplace in the great room was created just this way. Our client came to us with her vision, our design team found the perfect three dimensional tile for her approval, and she was able to see her vision come to life.
Our client wanted to see the midcentury story played out in every room of the home. Fireclay tile was used in the family bathroom and laid out in a graphic pattern. The gentle organic curve of the round mirror and use of different materials created a simple and functional design.
The Master Suite makes several bold mid mod statements while keeping the background quiet and calm. The sconces next to the bed have a switch on the fixture for easy individual on and off preferences. The vanity in the master bath is a mahogany furniture piece that with the help of our designers was customized to our client’s personal needs. Keeping the tile cohesive throughout the space makes it feel spa like and organic.
We were able to repurpose several original items from this home. Many of the interior doors were reused, and the original kitchen cabinetry was installed in the lower level laundry room.
Above all else, we always keep in mind that we are entrusted with the hopes and dreams of our clients. This renovation was started and completed during the pandemic. We learned how to pivot, find materials and manage expectations during this difficult time. We are happy to report that this family is finally home. And that is our mid mod story!
