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.
“And you know when I’m looking to create function AND beauty, Deco Design has got to be involved! How stunning are these incognito lockers that they built? I love them and they provide so much storage too. Each of my kids has a locker space to keep their backpack, shoes and general crap out of sight, haha. Deco Design worked with me to create this concept that offers a wider door for each locker and doesn’t feel like your typical mudroom setup. We also had the two center lockers open opposite each other so that it looks more like a high end cabinet than a bank of lockers. Another cool feature Deco Design incorporated for me is a pass through at the back of the first locker that goes right into the laundry room– so dirty clothes can go straight into the laundry hamper!”
