Today we're very excited to share a little look inside our 'Ridgeview Street' project: a new construction home that we had the privilege of collaborating on with some amazing clients over the last year or so. I say collaborating because that's truly what it was - the clients had done a good chunk of the ground work when they approached FDI to help them pull together the details of their new home.
For today's reveal, we decided to photograph some of the hardest working spaces in any home - the kitchen, master bathroom, and mudroom.
From the beginning, I knew I would love working with this energetic family of four - they were fun, organized, and decisive. They knew they wanted a light-filled space that still felt warm + inviting and finishes that didn't force them to choose between browns and greys. In the kitchen, white cabinetry feels so fresh + classic and the black hardware we chose is the perfect punctuation to draw attention to details in the millwork.
We chose a backsplash that has both grey and brown tones while still feeling simple enough to coordinate perfectly with the veined quartz countertop.
A large window over the sink provides the space with an ample amount of natural light but we added in these fun geometric pendants lights over the island to help define the space and tie in the black hardware. The island itself is custom-stained in a finish the clients hand selected; in fact, it was one of the first things chosen in the whole house! The flooring throughout the living room + kitchen space is a cork product which is durable yet soft underfoot and environmentally friendly. Points all around!
The Master Ensuite
Master bathrooms are one of my favourite spaces to design because it's where function meets form in a very real way. A wide sliding barn door makes the room easily accessible during hectic morning routines and an overall lighter colour palette ensures the room feels fresh, even when it's still dark outside. And did you notice that stunning bathtub peeking out...?
One of my favourite details in the whole house is the dark charcoal hexagon floor tile that carries into the shower floor as well - we loved the subtle variance in tones as you look across it. A bubble-shaped light fixture above the bathtub creates a relaxed, whimsical vibe and is such a fun element to this space.
Towers on either side of the vanity keep the center clear for maximum counter space but provide that extra bit of storage you can always put to good use in a bathroom space!
For the mudroom, we went with ultra-durable tile installed in herringbone pattern to stand up to life's knicks and scuffs for this growing family. Even the lockers themselves have a distressed finish and will look just as great ten years from now as they do today!
These clients were fully committed to creating the home they wanted, investing their own time + thought into the details along with us, and I'm so thrilled we were able to help them in creating the warm, contemporary home they were craving for their growing family of four.
