This young, modern Baltimore family on the go wanted a completely contemporary home makeover catapulting it from the 1940s into 2019. Every room in the home was redesigned and rebuilt with a contemporary style. This busy, growing family desired clean spaces with lots of hidden storage to keep things organized. Surfaces of varied materials offer the home a unique, interesting and updated appearance using the finest of products including marble, tile, hardwood, glass, and quartzite. Incorporating a big new design trend of oversize tiles (2′ x 4′) throughout the home is considered modern in style and also offers ease in cleaning (less grout). Porcelain tile with Carrera marble veining for the formal dining room amplifies and lends to an overall sophistication.
The homeowners’ decision to install natural reclaimed wood in place of tile in many areas helped to soften some of the harder textured elements. You will see this wood incorporated in the breathtaking custom staircase to the second floor consisting of glass, wood and large circular stainless steel brackets making it an entryway showpiece. Another focal point is in the living room of this open floor plan which is a modern, thin stacked stone, linear fireplace a fresh new element accompanied by the traditional look of a clean white coffered ceiling.
