Creating a Tranquil and Culturally Inspired Retreat
On a mission to achieve the client’s goal of transforming their uninspired traditional builder’s home into one that reflects their desire for tranquility and personalization, Laura Burton Interiors began with a remodel of their bathrooms. Enthused by luxury resorts in Bali, the client’s gained space by expanding the master bathroom into a neighboring closet and re-orienting the tub, allowing for a larger shower. Natural light was brought in with a 9 foot transom window and monochromatic colors were selected to enhance the calm atmosphere. Two special touches that were incorporated into the space were a custom designed vanity where each piece of walnut was hand-selected by the clients, and unique “liquid glass” tile accents that possesses shades of green and blue to pull in ocean-like colors. Once the bathroom remodel was complete, the clients wanted to create a continuation of the same design feeling throughout their home.
Next, Burton remodeled the master bedroom and the living room. To create a sense of openness, the wall that divided the kitchen and living room was removed and the flooring was replaced with new hardwood floors. A focal point was added by transforming an awkward fireplace and TV area into a sleek walnut and stone wall, which displays custom cabinetry and shelving for electronics and to display art from their travels. Furthermore, they replaced the furniture and updated the color scheme with more simplistic design. In the bedroom, a custom bed and nightstands were commissioned and luxurious yet sleek materials were selected to give one of their favorite pieces of art hanging above the bed room to shine. Now when they return from faraway places, they are able to relax in the comfort of their home while enjoying cultural touches from their favorite trips.
