Bathroom Progress Pictures while working with Rigid Development

Hi All,
Here are some of my iPhone pictures I took of bathrooms I designed for clients of Rigid Development while I worked with them.

A modern craftsman master bathroom.  Here I chose a dark green/gray cabinet color.  I believe it was Dragon's Breath by Benjamin Moore.  We also had the mirror trimmed and painted in the same color for extra detail.  The plumbing fixtures chosen were the Kohler Bancroft series in Chrome.




 For this modern master bath, the client wanted sinks that sat on top of the countertop.  I chose one with a low profile but some interest.  I loved the tub we used as well.


Here's the powder room in the modern home.  I designed a floating cabinet and finished it with a large surface mounted bowl and side faucet.  Custom mirrors to match the cabinets.



 In this powder room, we played with tile creating a tiled backdrop for the custom stained mirror.  We chose a surface mounted bowl and contemporary faucet to finish off the look.


Haha, you'll have to forgive me for the next few pictures.  The electricians had to move these sconces several times…but that's part of building a home.  These cabinets were custom colored and the tops were all quartz.  I loved the faucets we used in these kids baths.  





Another cute powder room in a different house.  I love the white classic cross handles on the faucet and little bun feet.  I remember in this floor, I had to instruct the tile guys to take out every few tiles to place a black one in to reference the granite countertop.



 Here's a pretty example of an Arabesque tile from Mission Stone & Tile.  When the budget allows, I love to add a panel for extra interest.  This was a little girl's bath.



A couple pretty floor details:




And a few pretty tub areas…I loved how we finished out this tub area with board and batton and a chair rail.  It gives it a more beach cottage feel.



Thanks for checking out some of my work with me…-sa

Project Progress Pictures while working with Rigid Development

Hello All,
Here are a few iPhone pictures I took of kitchens I designed while working with Rigid Development.  

A modern kitchen fit for a chef.  The wife is a chef and wanted all the comforts of a true working kitchen at home.  Top of the line appliances, faucets, and stainless steel backsplash give this kitchen it's edge.




A quirky kitchen layout for a craftsman bungalow.  I loved the step detail you see to the right which came down and became a little cubby/storage area.  This idea was something the client wanted and I loved the idea...





I believe the original inspiration for this kitchen's cabinetry came from Brooke and Steve Giannetti.  Brooke is the creative and talented designer who writes the blog Velvet and Linen.  We loved the way one of their kitchens had upper cabinets that covered windows for an unexpected light source so we incorporated the idea into this client's kitchen.






This is a kitchen for a family with two young kids.  They needed a large working island and an open layout to the rest of the room which included a large great room and breakfast area.


It's been fun to revisit these projects… -sa

Kitchens with Rigid Development

Hi All,
These are some kitchens that I designed while working with Rigid Development before having sweet Baby A.

This kitchen was designed for a young family.  They wanted a beautiful soft color palette but still inviting for family and guests from the dining room.  I love how Bill Johnson created this large arched opening between the two spaces.


We used a granite here called White Typhoon which has soft greys, greens and specs of raspberry in it. The grain is large and dramatic but pretty!  You can't really see this but we used a tabarka tile at the range for a pretty accent.

The Above Home Designed by William Johnson Architect


This home was a spec home.  I chose a dark stained cabinet and modern details such as using a simple white subway tile but using a contrast grout color.  The pendant lights are very industrial...  

This home was a spec home.  I chose a gray cabinet color with black granite and an arabesque tile backsplash from Mission Stone & Tile.


This kitchen was created for a young couple who wanted a modern looking kitchen with some fun details.  


I personally love this kitchen layout.  Here I used a kasher white granite on the perimeter and a limestone on the island.  The backsplash is a glass subway in gray from Mission Stone & Tile.



While I don't still work with Rigid Development, their team is still creating beautiful homes in Nashville. -sa

Last Summer Project Purchases

Hello All,
Well a lot has been happening in our world...  I finished up a big project this past summer before having a baby girl in September.  Unfortunately, I don't have this project photographed yet but I can share some of the things I placed in this home and will share info about where you can find them too.

When you walk in the front door, you are greeted by an antique swedish enfilade placed against soft white plastered walls and sitting on roman ashlar patterned stone floors.  The light fixture above the front door is a custom iron lantern.



To the right is the dining room.  In it I placed this antique swedish dining table (with leaves not shown)





And these chairs...


You might remember this chandelier from when I ordered it for them.  It sits above the dining table...


To the left of the front door is the study.  The walls are a washed wood and the details on the fireplace are beautiful.  In it, I placed this desk and chair (which is on casters for easy mobility) and a pair of these slipcovered chairs (actual fabric not shown) to flank the fireplace.





In the Kitchen and Breakfast Area, an antique french trestle table (I don't have a picture of it readily available) seats six with these pretty skirted chairs in a custom perennials fabric.


These are the cabinet hardware selections for the kitchen cabinetry and butler's pantry.


In the Family Room which is open to the breakfast area and kitchen is slightly separated by washed wood beams and a beautiful stone fireplace and custom washed wood cabinets and shelves on each side.  Here, I placed this sofa (actual fabric not shown), a pair of these chairs in the fabric swatch below, and a custom iron and wood coffee table.  I also placed a custom canvas bound gray patterned sisal on the floor to help the room feel more comfortable and casual.




The formal powder room is off to the left of the family room and has a subtle silver grass cloth on the walls and a dresser that we turned into a vanity for a surface mount stone bowl and wall mounted faucet.  The sheer floral was added to the two small windows that flank the vanity.





In the informal powder room off the kitchen which leads from the back door and mudroom area I chose this mirror and this wallpaper.



In the master bedroom, these were the accent pillows that were used on the pretty linen tufted headboard in a white wash finish.  I also placed this bench in front of the bed and these chairs (actual fabric not shown) in the bay window area.







These custom painted antique demi lune tables flanked the bed in front of windows with matching lamps on each.



This is the sheer fabric that I used in the master bathroom windows.


In the upstairs boys bathrooms, this mirror was used over their vanities.


These are a few pieces that were used in their rooms.






Well, that's all for now.  Baby A is up!
