Our team has been busy installing tile, countertops, metal railings and more at Mari and Kelly’s house. The interior and exterior painting is also complete. Today’s post features the latest photos, including stunning star tiles in the master bath, and state-of-the-art Tesla solar shingles on the roof.
Remember the inspiration photo (above) from Part 4? We installed this exact Cambria quartz countertop in the kitchen, guest bathroom and master bath.
As seen in the master bathroom (above), it’s a beautiful white quartz with flecks of metallic gold and navy blue veining called Portrush.
Used on the central island, as well as the perimeter countertops, Portrush adds an understated elegance to the kitchen (above).
Two undermount apron sinks, strategically placed, preserve the clean expanse of the new countertop.
Mari loves the island’s large, clean work surface area.
Now that the countertops are in, we’re ready to install the appliances and cabinet drawers and door fronts.
MORE GORGEOUS TILE
We are starstruck by the tiles in the master bath.
The floor-to-ceiling hex tiles are a combo of white and navy blue star tiles by Mission Tile West.
What a cool backdrop for his-and-her mirrors, sinks and lighting.
FLOAT ROOM FINISHES
In Part 2, we introduced you to Kelly’s float room in the basement, as well as the careful installation of his 700-pound sensory deprivation tank. Three-inch by 12-inch subway tiles in Envy Green were used for the tub base, half wall and shower surround. Trapezoid tile of the same color, but in a glossy finish, were used as a border for added interest.
Subtle green is the calming, go-to color this year. Read about popular colors, and other must-have styles and finishes, in our post Interior Design Trends for 2022.
Kelly will be able to step out of the sensory deprivation tank straight into the adjacent shower, which will have frameless glass doors for a clean look.
Our team also installed custom, fabricated metal railings throughout the home. In addition to providing safety along the catwalk, they preserve the open design concept and flood the upstairs with natural light.
The minimalist railings also reflect the modern style of the home.
On the exterior, we installed the same metal railings, as well as pavers, on both second-floor lanais.
TESLA SOLAR ROOF
Colorado enjoys nearly 300 days of sunshine a year, and Mari and Kelly’s house is the perfect candidate for solar.
So they ordered a Tesla solar roof system to produce clean energy for their home. “It also looks very modern,” says Mari.
“The shingles that face the south side are solar shingles, but they look just like the rest of them,” she adds, referring to the standard shingles used on the rest of the home.
“The Tesla shingles blend in, so there’s no ‘big square’ on the top of your roof like you see with traditional solar panels. We’re excited about that.”
Next up – the installation of lighting fixtures, plumbing fixtures and Mari’s dream appliances in the kitchen! Stay tuned to this monthly blog series as we get closer and closer to the final reveal.
