Woodmere, New York
This was a new build home of 5,000 SF, for a family of four. The goal for our client was to bring light and airy Hampton’s living style, into their new home in Woodmere, NY.
We used a very soft, modern palette of grays and whites throughout the home, with pop’s of accent colors such as teals and soft blues.
LIVING ROOM & DINING ROOM: The living and dining room is an open concept that brings together light modern living with transitional details, moldings and furnishings. We wanted to bring some excitement into the living room, so we used a custom artist to paint teal stucco venezia accents inside of the coffered ceiling. To balance out the boldness of the teal ceiling, we used layers of gray and white textures in the drapery and rest of the wall finishes.
The dining room chandelier made custom by Shakuff, although modern in style, is rich and elegant in order to work with the transitional details of the space.
ENTRY HALL: The entry hall floor is a light grey porcelain tile that runs through the entrance and guest hallway. The walls are a custom grey stucco venezia that continues up the full height of the space to the second floor.
The stair was custom designed, again to bring in more modern elements into the railing, but that still worked in balance with the transitional details such as the wainscot and moldings. The paneling was brought onto the stair wall, and camouflages a hidden door to a storage closet under the stair. Another custom Shakuff fixture hangs in the entrance and offers an ethereal light to the space.
KITCHEN & FAMILY ROOM: The kitchen and family room also act as an open plan concept, and visually connect. It is a place where the family can hang out, entertain, and be together. The family room wall unit was custom designed with a mix of a white painted finish and contrasting wood grain doors and back wall paneling in a warm light grey tone. The soft blue walls add a touch of contrast to the room, as well as adds to the soft, beachy vibe.
The kitchen stays light and airy with a mix of white cabinetry and a grey wood grain island, desk and wet bar, from Woodmode. The backsplash is a white marble mosaic that merges with a grey and white quartzite countertop. The floors are a grey porcelain tile that tie in with the wood plank flooring in the family room.
MASTER SUITE: The master suite is a zen retreat. We carried the blue and grey theme upstairs, in a variety of textures and patterns. The custom drapery is a mix of bold printed sheers and solid grey black-out curtains and roman shades. The crystal and metal chandelier, again ties together a more modern aesthetic with a look that is rich and elegant.
The master bathroom is a large, open, and airy room. We wanted to capture all of the light that pours into this space, and tie in with earthier elements such as the pebble mosaic shower and floor border. All of the vanities were custom built by Woodmode, and the bold mosaic behind them stays neutral and adds another layer of texture to the room.
BATHROOMS: DAUGHTER AND SON: The inspiration for the daughters bathroom was to have a bright white, modern space. We layered textures of white in the accent mosaic behind the sink, as well as the main tile. We also included a make up table in the ante room connected to the main bathroom with a marble grey and white top and white cabinetry.
The son’s bathroom took a more dramatic turn and went with deeper, richer tones. The shower wall with the herringbone mosaic tile from Artistic Tile, is the feature accent in the space. We complemented that back wall using a textured tile in 2 colors, also from Artistic Tile, on the floor and walls. The vanity, custom built by Woodmode, is a rich, deep espresso color to bring some contrast into the bathroom.
DAUGHTER’S BEDROOM: The daughter’s bedroom is a dreamy vision in purple! Our custom painter used a strie texture in a deep purple on the back wall to pop against the softer lavender paint in the room. The bedding and accents are a mix of purple, mirrored and glass textures and materials to compliment the bold accent wall.
GUEST HALL AND BATHROOMS: The guest hallway has a storage bench that comes off of the side family entrance. It is a light and airy catch all space to store shoes, coats and other items when going in and out of the house.
Right off of that area, is the pool bathroom. This bathroom is for guests using the pool and also has additional laundry machines. The shower in this bathroom is where the drama is, using another Artistic Tile mosaic glass accent in a bright blue color. The rest of the walls and floor are a porcelain ‘wood look’ plank tile that has nice variation and movement to it. Very beach and pool friendly!
POWDER ROOM: The final bathroom in the house is the powder room, also off of the Guest Corridor. Custom painted walls in a grey silvery texture set off the rich dark wood vanity. The drama of the vessel sink from Kohler with a Phylrich wall mount faucet add to the space. Custom blown glass pendant lighting from Shakuff brings in a sparkle to the room.
