This job was a new home build for Mollie of Design Loves Detail. This is one of my favorite projects of 2018 and the final product showcases just how amazing the collaboration was! When Mollie approached me with the plans for her new home and asked us to do the cabinetry I was very excited. Mollie is an extremely talented designer and her ideas are trendsetting and innovative. I love to take our clients ideas and perfect them into functional and stunning designs, and Mollie is a master at this. I’d love to take all the credit for the thought that went into her designs for this house, but Mollie came to me with each room illustrated exactly how she wanted it to look with great inspiration photos and renderings. I had the easy job of making them come to life. A few tweaks were made here and there but this is her baby…and it turned out brilliantly.
She coined the phrase “European organic modern” for this house and it fits well. Her goal was to combine classic European elements with natural organic elements with lots of texture and a modern clean aesthetic. She raised the bar on this one. The palette she chose was a combination of very soft neutral grays and off whites for the paint with white washed rift oak as the compliment. I love how each room is well thought out as far as placement and function. You could spend hours in each room admiring how successfully everything comes together. This is definitely a house you want to spend some time in.
“I went with a minimal design with masculine, industrial feel for this space. For these awesome cabinets built by the ever-amazing Deco Design, we went for a style that packed in a lot of storage! The X doors add detail & interest, but maintain a sleek appearance. The color is a rich gray (Benjamin Moore– Kendall Charcoal), that’s still a mid range tone to hide all those dirty little fingerprints 🙂 haha. And even these bathroom cabinets have the amazing soft close feature. Deco Design spares no detail. And I love the soft close in kids spaces because 1) the kids don’t slam the doors and ruin them and 2) the doors and drawers don’t get partially closed, they’ll finish closing even if the kids just give a half-hearted push. In case you missed my interview with Deron of Deco Design, be sure to check it out here! He shared all kinds of great info on custom cabinetry and I included my own cabinetry insight as well from a homeowner’s and designer’s perspective.”
