This one is from Emily Taft Design out of Winston-Salem, NC. I lived in Winston-Salem while attending Wake Forest University and I was a member of the New York Junior League, so I couldn’t resist checking out the project once Emily e-mailed her project photos my way. This home is located in the Country Club Estates neighborhood and starting March 22, while be open to the public on the Junior League of Winston-Salem’s Tour of Fine Spaces. The home is LEED certified and includes gardens designed by landscape architect Chip Callaway. I have decided to include the kitchen that Emily worked on, so take a look here. It’s a great example of combining black granite countertops with a marble island:
The marble used on the kitchen island and the slab behind the cooking range is a polished Satuary Veneto marble and on the perimeter of the kitchen the counters were done in absolute black leather granite in a very cool matte texture. The kitchen cabinets were painted in Benjamin Moore’s Snow White. The ceiling coffers were done in a Phillip Jeffries grass cloth that offers a layer of texture and absorbs sound. The seating area includes a fun and practical banquette.
We also liked her use of this fun silver leaf bamboo mirror in the powder room. For fun, colorful mirrors like this for your powder room, check out our mirror collection at The Well Appointed House.
