First Look: A West Plano Luxury House with Soft Contemporary Stylings
I’m thrilled to share a new project we’ve just completed, a West Plano luxury house with soft contemporary stylings and a sleek look. What started as blah became beautiful when we collaborated with the homeowners to bring their vision to life with complete interior design services.
Research is the backbone of any successful project, so before any dust flew in this huge Plano renovation, we took detailed photos and measurements, and asked our clients create Houzz ideabooks so we could see visual representations of their inspirations. This, coupled with lots of in-depth conversations, gave us the information we needed so we could begin conceptualizing the look and feel of the interior. My team and I got to work!
When we were hired for this Plano interior design work, the rooms of the house were partitioned and somewhat closed off, typical of its build date in the 1980s. With the homeowners, we created a plan to open it up, gutting the first floor to create better flow, enlarged rooms, and raised ceilings.
We opened up the kitchen to the living room, creating a soft contemporary-transitional look. That slab of granite on the kitchen 14-foot island is exceptionally beautiful with deep veining in variegated colors and called “Fusion.” We took advantage of the tall ceilings with white double-height Shaker-style cabinets and a oversized custom vent hood; their clean lines worked well with the look, as do the three chrome chandeliers over the island. We chose SubZero-Wolf professional-grade appliances because function must work in tandem with form for a kitchen to be useful. Three chrome chandeliers over the island add overhead lighting and a geometric accent.
When we called out a structural engineer to inspect our work, as is required by the city, he said we needed to put in a 30-foot steel beam to support the wall between the kitchen and living room and the dining room. We ended up leaving it exposed and painted it a silver color. As you can see in the photos below, it fits right in!
This nearby first-floor family room is anchored by a contemporary gas log fireplace clad in large-format cream-colored tile and flanked by custom built-ins in with wallpapered back walls. The room has LED lights and a contemporary floating mantel. With a lower ceiling than the other living room, this is a cozier and more intimate space, perfect for a night in with the family. The other room would function perfectly — and impressively — as an entertaining space.
Now onto the master bathroom, which is my favorite part of the whole West Plano interior design project! We gutted what was there and took space from another room to create a dressing area. On the floor, large-format porcelain tile with blue glass trim tile. I love the custom look!
The jetted tub is clad in “iceberg blue” quartzite with blue veining and there is white marble tile on the walls. That chrome chandelier over the jetted tub is the kind of high-end detail we included throughout the project, designed to delight. In the walk-in shower, I used gray oversized subway tile and glass trim and floor tile and a body jet system makes it a luxurious experience.
We took some space from a nearby room to create an oversized walk-in closet. The combination of hanging space, cabinets, and drawers will provide a lot of function for years to come.
The first-floor utility room is all about convenience made beautiful with accent tile that wraps all around the walls and extends from counter to ceiling. Two washers, two dryers, and ample hanging space mean laundry will never be an unattractive chore.
We took this Plano luxury home from dated to delightful and I’m thrilled with the results! What do you think about it? Leave us a comment here or over on Facebook or Twitter!
