The Tin Cup project was a rustic-contemporary style interior renovation involving a long-distance collaboration with our client, who lived in New York at the time. She requested a smarter floor plan, the removal of the heavy, dated brick fireplaces and improvements to the safety of the staircase.
To eliminate a step down, Alpine Summit Homes raised the floor in the living room to be flush with the surrounding floor allowing a seamless flow throughout the house. We wrapped the steps in oak with an anti-slip finish and added cable railings. An industrial whisk was transformed into a hanging light in the stairwell, creating a unique patterned effect.
The kitchen retained its original layout, but new cabinets, lighting, countertops and appliances were installed. The quartz buffet countertop and range backsplash have a leathered finish, providing a natural feel.
The front closet was transformed into a lighted art display on one side and a coat closet with a barn door on the other. We refaced fireplaces with natural stone and brought a 110-year-old chestnut beam from an old East Coast barn for both the fireplace mantel and the primary bathroom sink shelf.
All interior doors and trim were custom built. Some interior doors have translucent glass for privacy and light transfer, while new energy-efficient Milgard windows frame lovely light and views. New oak flooring completed the look and made the house feel like a new home.
