It has been a busy time at Patina Farm! Both Nick and Leila are graduating this week. Nick will be joining big brother Charlie at NYU in August, and Leila will start High School in the Fall! Time is just flying by...
Meanwhile back at Giannetti Home, Steve, our design associate Laura, and I are preparing for the installation at our clients' French Normandy style beach house. The installation date is at the end of the month, so we are reviewing all of the little details.
I thought you might enjoy seeing some pictures of the progress...
The fence is down, and we can finally enjoy a relatively unobstructed view (if you can overlook the buckets, piles of gravel, etc...) of the front of the house!
The honed Calacatta slabs have been installed in the kitchen. The gray and gold veining in the marble picks up the accent colors in the house.
There are two islands in the kitchen... The sink island has a marble counter top. The seating island, which separates the kitchen and the dining room, has a stained White Oak countertop.
Honed Calacatta was also used as the material on the counter top of this side of the kitchen.
The tile from Exquisite Surfaces has been placed on the back wall of the stove.
In the laundry room, we selected a honed Balzac limestone for the countertop and an antiqued limestone floor in random widths.
We used the same flooring and counter top material in all of the bathrooms.
All of the tile is Waterworks Echo Tile (Chino color glaze). It works beautifully with the Farrow and Ball Wimborne White paint.
We painted the cabinets in the bathrooms shades of blue and green, to match the accent colors in the bedrooms.
We used a table from Chelsea Textiles for the Powder Room sink base. The floor tiles are antique terra cota from Exquisite Surfaces.
There will be one more site visit to review light fixtures, cabinet hardware, and other little details before installation day at the end of the month! It's so exciting to see everything come together.
As always, Steve and I want to thank our generous clients for allowing us to share their home with you!
