20 A Street - INTERIOR FINISHING
Interior finishing has started at the 20 A Street Spec and it’s looking really good. I went with “cake batter” walls, rich nutmeg color hardwood and “simply white” trims. A palette that could go any interior décor direction – rustic mountain, urban contemporary or anything in between.
I always choose my spec house interiors very carefully because I am trying to appeal to the masses. I think the key is to be current but traditional at the same time. In this case I went with oil rubbed bronze light fixtures that read contemporary but have little features or shapes that connect them to traditional. The interior doors are not your typical 6 panel we’ve seen for the last 30 years. Instead, I went with a 3 panel mission style which has a crisp cove detail that I just love. And the oil rubbed bronze hardware is the exclamation mark that puts them over the top.
The hardwood floor is probably the trendiest element I went with. It’s maple but with a hand hewn rustic look. It’s everywhere in the magazines right now. It works for rustic interiors but especially for contemporary interiors.
I am still deciding on kitchen back splash tile. The counter is lighter in color as this kitchen is north east exposed. It has a beautiful classic stone look. I am looking for something with a little texture and a touch of sparkle. That’s the key to making a neutral palette pop.
We are anticipating be ready for open house tours by mid December so continue to check into my blog for dates.
