Interior Home Designs
This shot of the dining room followed by the entry and the still unfinished living room shows many of the interesting aspects of this homes living area from the oval three foot by five and one half foot custom chandelier we had made so that the dining table (which expands to fourteen feet) would be in balance.

Rich window coverings, (seen below) which the contractor/ developer said, were the most beautiful he had ever seen anywhere. A knotless beamed ceiling, one of a kind custom designed and fabricated fireplace, (seen below) incredible cabinetry with rich burl wood insets, and artistic stone floors.

Rich Window Coverings

This detail shot is of the silk dining room draperies and the three large tassel tiebacks that were used on each side of the window due to the enormity of scale of these window coverings.

Limestone, Granite, Onyx, & Marble Entry

This photograph shows the inlay stone work of the entry which was made up of limestone, granite, onyx and marble was designed by Klint Kettell interiors. A mosaic tortoise shell chandelier hangs from the barreled entry ceiling. the marbleized columns set atop slab granite and “hold up” three dimensional architectural detail looking like large sections of marble that appear to be supporting the double coffered ceiling above with its indirect lighting that wash the curved coffers.

The massive hickory iron and glass door, with side lights, can be seen on the right. It greats guests from the expansive out of door terrace patio living area.

The overfull India silk eggplant draperies of the dining room as well as the custom made oval chandelier. The beamed ceiling of the dining room and kitchen was made from hand selected wood. Not one knot is in the wood used in these beams.

Floor Entry Detail Shot

This entry hall detail shot, of its floor pattern was created by Klint Kettell interiors. It utilizes limestone, marble mosaic, onyx and granite. A chair rail marble cap was used in the entry above the limestone baseboard for a fitting finishing touch.

Marbleized columns sit atop granite slab, and natural light floods through the massive hickory, iron and glass door and side lights.

One Of A Kind Fireplace

The rich tapestry like fabric of the dining chairs pay homage to the colors of the stone use as well as to the rich vibrant “Eggplant” of the glass in the cabinet seen behind the fireplace, (pictured below) and as the silk of the breathtaking window coverings in this room.

A band with a grape cluster and leaf design and carvings of the same design in the dining room cabinetry continue the theme from the kitchen. a large rosette was applied and antiqued on the chimney surround for visual interest, up lighting was placed above the fireplace to illuminate the detail as well as all the dining and kitchen cabinetry adding warmth and interplay with the soaring beamed knotless ceiling.

Dining Room Cabinets

This detail shot of rich mahogany dining room cabinets shows a carved relief which continued the grape cluster and leaf motif from the attached kitchen area. The leaded art glass and stained windowed doors utilized glass that complemented the Eggplant colored silk draperies of the dining room.

Kitchen Cabinet Detail Shot

In this kitchen cabinet detail shot, a large mahogany corbel, one of two supports the eating bar area of the countertop island adding both grounding weight and artistry to the room (one of two islands in this kitchen). The framed cherry burl wood veneered panel, one of five, breaks up rounded mahogany cabinetry. a curved soffit above mimics the counter below, from the soffit five art glass pendants align themselves over the centers of the burl wood frames. The soffit defines the kitchen area in this open kitchen breakfast room.

In the background a mirror backed display cabinet with glass shelves and recessed lighting provides not only reflection of cherished possessions and accentuates the possessions color, but provides a venue for the imagery allowed in through large double mahogany doors which frame of the homes spectacular view.

The photograph shows the inset of a four inch square piece of the countertops “antique brown” granite that was placed at every other tile point in the marble floor, as the antique brown does not come in a tile it had to be milled from slab for this use.

Not shown, the long breakfast table. It was custom made with 8” diameter mahogany custom turned columns as legs and topped with the “antique brown” granite. The table top had three diamonds, 8” in the center and flanked by 6” to its sides of Botticino marble jet cut and then inset, completing a truly spectacular kitchen area. The Botticino was the same stone used as the field of the floor.
