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.
“For the cabinetry in this space, Deco Design really delivered! I wanted open shelving for the functional aspect, but also wanted to keep a cabinetry feel. Deron of Deco Design, worked with me to create this concept that provides storage from floor to ceiling! I love the drawers too since they’re great for keeping kids snacks at their level and easily accessible. The bench below the window is another fun element Deron proposed for this space. It’s unique & unexpected, plus provides more storage and gets a lot of use! I love having my kids come sit down and chat with me while I’m doing meal prep in this room or sitting there myself when talking with my husband who makes our daily green smoothie here. One of my favorite things about Deco Design is that Deron is a creative genius who works through each detail with you to get it just right! I recently interviewed him to get some very helpful insight for our upcoming blog post about custom cabinetry and his process… can’t wait to share!”
