bath_play - THE BEAUTY OF FLOATING VANITIES by Annabelle Guldner

Today we are looking at floating vanities and the advantages and disadvantages they bring with them. We love the look of the floating vanities. As you can see from the examples the blonde wood look is in style and helps to instill some warmth to the neutral and bright spaces. In a small bathroom the most important thing to introduce is storage without creating clutter. You might think in those instances floating vanities don’t make any sense since you lose storage space. We think differently; floating vanities offer great storage capacity with large drawers that wrap around plumbing pipes. This makes it possible to utilize the top drawer space with a second large and deep drawers underneath. The use of vessel sinks clears up additional space and they are a great look for these vanities. Of course there are many more storage options with open shelving, baskets, etc but the takeaway is that storage is available.

The main positive aspect for a floating vanity in a smaller bathroom is the sense of openness and spacious feel it creates. The gap underneath the vanity creates negative spaces that give the illusion of more square footage. The floating effect also contributes to an overall perception of a larger and more generous area. Large mirrors, or wall tile from floor to ceiling give the impression of higher ceilings and a beautiful perception of space. Accent lighting helps to emphasize the floating effect a creates a nice indirect and soft lighting condition.

These type of vanities makes cleaning easy and offer additional floor space for baskets, shelves, or for little step stool for kids! Not just fitting for a small bathroom, even in large spaces floating vanities really update your look and create a unique alternative to the standard vanities. Create an airy, updated and fun atmosphere in your bathroom, that’s functional and timeless!

home_play - IT'S CONSTRUCTION TIME

Breaking ground for a custom home we designed in Savannah, GA!

This young family has waited almost 2 years to start the construction of their new home and we are so proud we could be a part of the process and design their dream home! It's the start of living the dream now! We are visiting Savannah in December and can't wait to see the process then!

design_play - TALK ABOUT CUSTOM by Annabelle Guldner

These two examples of highly customized designs are installed in two different new custom homes. One has a beachy feel with clean and contemporary lines, while the other is very traditional, elegant and classic. The stair railing was design and manufactured to fit the exact stair design we came up with. The customization went as far as the exact cable length, angle of the drilled holes in the metal uprights and mountain mechanism for securing them to the skirt. We worked with a metal artist in Minnesota, and went back and forth with shop drawings, design revisions and field measurement confirmations until we were ready to commit to exact sizes and start the manufacturing process. The day we installed them was nerv-wrecking! Just hoping that everything was correct and could be installed without hick-ups. And we were successful! We love how this railing came out, especially the custom white oak handrail that gives it more of a homey and less commercial feel. The client is very happy with his staircase design!

The other project involved a custom home office, entirely out of cypress wood besides the flooring which is a reclaimed heart pine. The panel design was sized to the room and features a hidden storage closet with a push-to-open mechanism that is entirely invisible. The fireplace as well as the built-ins and desk to either side of the fireplace were designed to the clients needs and desires. The natural finish on the cypress gives it a light and open feel, so all the wood isn't overpowering. Certainly a nice office space where inspiration is sparked and productivity can flow!
