Design Selections

Our clients and Lindsay selected some fabulous finishes for their homes. They struck the perfect balance of colors and stayed true to the house’s era. What do you think?

First up, the kitchen. The perimeter cabinets will be polar white inset, and the island will be a warm, natural walnut. All countertops are marble-looking quartz. The fun green mosaic tile backsplash will add just enough color, while the hardware and plumbing fixtures will inject warmth with their golden hues.


These bathroom selections seemed to jump right from my mind into reality on this project. We’re obsessed with the antique blue ceramic tile mixed with the walnut vanity. Also loving the pendant lights and brass fixtures with subdued white walls.

Hardwood Floors

Joe Meagher’s, the Project Manager, meticulous attention to detail is already showing on this project. After the framing, rough-ins, insulation, and drywall, it was time to start building the new space. Quality Hardwood Flooring laid all new hardwoods in the kitchen. It’s usually our preference to preserve the original floors, but that wasn’t a possibility in this case. We did match the new white oak hardwoods to the existing ones. The new 2 1/4 floors were then sanded and stained.

Bathroom Tile

After Joe installs the cement board on the shower walls and floors, it is ready for tile.

Ok, here’s the tile in application. IT IS SO GOOD! Apex installed them wonderfully, as always!


Cabinet Install

It’s time for Randy Shepherd to work his cabinet install magic. We’re not joking; he’s a magician! Sometimes these old houses aren’t very forgiving; the walls aren’t even, the floors aren’t level, and inset cabinets just aren’t forgiving. The doors have to lay perfectly. 

The primary bathroom vanity was made to look like a furniture piece. It’s the same natural walnut as the island and is also inset. 

We can’t wait to share the big reveal! It’s a beautifully designed and executed project in a fantastic Brookside Tudor home.
