Private Residence

This 1,612 sf under air condo was built in 1988 and had never been updated. The ninety-year-old owners were seasonal residents. The new owner-buyer instantly fell in love with the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired exterior architecture, and scenic lake view from the balcony. Having a vision for the potential of the home, an offer was made, accepted, and the four-month remodel began!

The vision for this Master Bedroom Suite was to create a much more livable, light filled, open and visually appealing space.

– The original Master Bedroom Suite layout was very awkward and featured a single-door entry, large, carpeted Dressing Area with mirrored bi-fold closets around the perimeter, a vanity with a sink, and a louvered door linen closet!

– A more special entry was created by making a double door entry, featuring Trustile three panel doors and Emtek Dumont Lever & Square Rosette Chrome door hardware.

– Fortunately, the Master Bedroom was spacious, with a nice layout with ample room for new furnishings. The Hayes White Oak Cortec that was selected for the main living area was continued into the Bedroom, as well as the Sherwin Williams City Loft paint color. A caramel tone Houndstooth wallcovering by Thibault is on the Headboard wall. Century’s Chatham King Bed in Peninsula Finish has custom Euro’s and Shams, and a Restoration Hardware faux fur throw. Battery operated Draw-drapes in a natural woven linen soften the room. A sculptural chandelier by Elk, accommodates the 8’ high ceilings while adding interest. White Orchids and a Capiz Shell are some of the added curiosities.

– The original Master Bathroom was dark and gloomy, had low white flat front melamine cabinets, composite countertops with integrated sinks, composite tub, polished chrome single handle faucets, a shower that was at the minimum dimensions to meet code, and a 4” Octagon white tile floor. It was pretty awful!

– Reconfiguring this floorplan to create a more spacious Bathroom with two Vanity’s was the biggest challenge for the Designer. The decision to remove the Built-in Tub (which was not a necessity for the Homeowner) and replace it with a spacious 90” wide x 40” deep Shower with horizontal linear textural porcelain tile, with a large soap niche for bath products, allowed for a vanity to go in the place of the original shower.

– The cabinets are a natural sand-tone Cerused Oak Slab door style Ovation by Crystal, with 3cm Eased-edge Pompeii Volazza counters and 4” backsplash, Kohler Purist faucets in polished chrome, two Kohler Verticyl Sinks, and a Kohler Adair Lavatory.

– Hands down, the Client is ecstatic with the newly remodeled Master Bedroom Suite!
