The biggest challenge was
to transform a white contemporary family room into a warm Tuscan Italian
space…even though the existing plan lent itself best to contemporary
design. The cabinetry was only ten years old, and the clients did not
want to tear out the entertainment unit and start over, so the
modifications had to be more of a décor update.
They used a unique spray-coating system on the entertainment center and
were able to fill the 8" hole spread from the existing handles to
install rustic iron decorative handles that help set the tone of the new
style. The Corian tops were replaced with granite, and a dark cherry
molding was added to the tops of the cabinets to traditionalize them.
The fireplace was painted in contrasting colors to make it a focal point
and the walls were painted a dark green to bring down the scale of the
vaulted ceiling for a more intimate feeling.
