Our renovation starts in just a couple of weeks and, honestly, I’m somewhere between jumping for joy and having a panic attack. I can’t believe, after waiting four LONG years with a kitchen from 1935 (yep, you read that right), we’re finally getting it done. Needless to say I’ve been spending some time
obsessing over researching everything from lighting to stone to cabinetry…you name it. While I still have a million decisions to make, one thing I know for sure is that I want to add some great mill work to as many rooms as possible (meaning as many as my stretched to the max budget will allow).
Here are some examples of how molding can take a space from ordinary to extraordinary:
Part of our plan is to add a new family room onto the back of the house. It will flow directly into the kitchen but will also connect to the formal living room which is our current family room (here). I’d love to have a beautiful arched doorway like one of these below to connect the two spaces.
No arch here but this is pretty too.
Another great example of beautiful mill work – the coffered ceiling. I love the way they’ve trimmed this one in black.
I don’t know what I’m drooling over more here…the walls or the floor.
We’re planning to add some molding above the fireplace in our current family room and I think it’s such a great way to frame a painting or sculpture. Must add some sconces too. These (here) are my faves so far.
And I might have to figure out a way to incorporate it into our powder room and master bath as well.
Wishing you all a great weekend and a Happy Easter!
Can’t wait for Marathon Monday!!!!
