The fireplace surround was installed today, next in line is templating for the slips and mantle. We have re purposed the french doors that originally separated the bedroom from the porch and they've been cut down and re hung as the closet doors!
This will be transformed yet again, first by Affinity Studios who will do a custom venetian plaster finish with "fern" imprints to work with the David Goldberg Fossil Collection Fern Wall Covering. Then Joe Amon from Out of the Woods will add a oak banding that will carry the cabinet crown molding onto the hood. Transformation in progress!

We are proud to be working with a local artisan who is truly gifted. See his work in the SF kitchen suspended steel lighting soffit over the island and the support for the peninsula leg. Rumor has it many other designers in the house are fortunate enough to have his talent on board. His work is not to be missed. Here's a little bit about Wyatt:
In January 2006, working as a supervisor welding retail store-fixtures during the day, Wyatt Ellison started creating furniture designs and functional art after hours. Months of experimenting led to the development of a line of home and garden pieces, which he started selling in retail stores throughout the Bay Area. In late 2006, his company Elemental Art was launched, and has since been striving for the next big promotion.

It's with total delight that we work with another general contractor who not only is great to work with, appreciates the design process AND the designers that come along with it, and knows how to get the job done. A rare, and true joy

The decorative pieces are all fashioned after this look, rough in aesthetic, stylized and luxurious. The butcher block island console will be similar in feel. All the decorative lighting will have exposed filament lamps....

LOOK FOR THE SF KITCHEN BACKSPLASHES TO BE DRESSED IN ANDY FLEISHMAN for ANN SACKS concrete flooring is highly artistic and brings unique character to any installation. The multiple designs, available in square and hexagon shaped tile, are intended to be installed as sets and the application of the grout creates intricate patterns throughout the floor.

This was a nasty surprise when the wall was demo'd to find the face of the fireplace was not in the same plane as the wall... meantime the new mantle/legs have already been built. Solution: fir out the wall to the new dimensions of the fireplace mantle/legs so the wall will receive the new mantle and legs. We love it when a plan eventually comes together :0)

Demo is nearly complete and framing is more than 50% done. The new "entry" to the Grand Suite is re configured, the new Master Bath is framed and the huge jacuzzi tub has been tossed out the window (really) and is ready to morph into the Master Retreat area!
