You have probably seen the beautiful copper farm sinks that are featured in many french country style kitchens, but did you know that there is much more to them than good looks?
Copper in the kitchen is a favorite to chefs and home cooks for it’s great looks and even conduction of heat, making it a great choice in cookware. However, this gorgeous metal has a secret characteristic – it’s natural resistance to bacteria and viruses. Making it a smart choice for kitchen and bathroom design.
Copper vessel sink adds sculptural element to this powder room.
It’s true that a copper sink can be an investment but its beauty and anti-bacteria benefits are an added value that might be worth the splurge. You can find a variety of stylish and unique options available through Etsy, local artisans and even your local bath retailer.
The homeowners and builder, MWG Custom Homes, made sure to take advantage of every opportunity to view the lake in this newly built home. The master bedroom was no exception.
The soft coastal color palette creates a relaxing vacation-home feeling that they enjoy each day.
The homeowners said they enjoy coffee in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening in the extremely comfortable chaise loungers, which during the winter are faced into the room… come spring, they face outward towards the beautiful sunset.
The wall of windows mirrors those in the dining area at the end of the kitchen – adding balance to the exterior of the house facing the lake.
It was my pleasure to work on this stunning home. Special thanks to MWG Custom Homes and the Vann’s for including me in this beautiful project!
When our homeowners were designing their new custom-built lake-front home, they had family and friends in mind. Spaces were well thought-out, including the great room, where they would spend most of their leisure time with their two small children.
I had the pleasure of working with Heidi Ferguson of Simply Heidi Photography on the photo shoot of this gorgeous new custom built Cross Lake home. I’ve watched this MWG Custom Homes house develop from studs to completion and had the pleasure of working with both the builder and homeowners through the process.
It’s always exciting to see a finished design project – even better through the eyes of an artist!
I brought in additional accessories and decor to style the spaces, working with what the homeowners already had in place – making adjustments as needed to prep for the photographer… then Heidi did the magic with her camera – bringing out the best in every room.
All and all it was a fun and productive day… Stay tuned for photos soon!
