Our clients have a unique modern rustic style for their Central Indiana home. But they are influenced by their second home in Colorado. They love their place out there and wanted to recreate that charm in their 1990s home. Besides the style upgrade, our clients were looking to ensure they could age-in-place in this home. Along with Hoskins Interior Design, we created a western-inspired getaway they will be able to live in for years to come.
Part of the main floor of the home, the master bedroom was reconfigured to give more space to the master bathroom, closet and office. The ceilings were quite tall in the space, and since we were going for a cozy feel we lowered them 6 ft and removed a large ½ round window. New tall windows keep the room light-filled with a more modern look. We also added oak beams to the ceiling to support the rustic vibe.
A new fireplace backed with a stained white oak wall was added to the master bedroom as well. An old beam mantel picked up on the ceiling design. Canned lighting and a large chandelier completed the space.
The entryway to the master bathroom used to be an angled wall and when we added space from the bedroom to the bath, we squared it up. The doorway was then widened and covered with a zinc sliding door. We look forward to seeing what it looks like a few years out as it forms a natural patina. Planning the details was especially important for this unique design feature. Zinc is very heavy, so the new entryway and rolling system had to be built with enough structural support to allow ease of use. Plus, rolling doors require extra wall space when they are open.
The master bathroom received a new footprint as well, allowing for double the shower size. We placed multiple heads in the shower and the ¾ walls on each side of the shower door allowed for grab bars. A functional and decorative niche runs the full length of the back wall. The design called for graphite Mediterranean Soho porcelain tiles in a graphite color, Island Stone pebbles on the niche wall and floor, and Brizio fixtures in a Venetian Bronze finish.
The vanity was crafted by Nathan Allen Design with stained walnut and grey cabinets. We built the wood wall to mimic the gorgeous wood using the same materials and stain. The mirrors are mounted to the wall with sliding hardware similar to the bathroom door. The vanity top is natural quartzite in Jatoba Bron Suede with drop-in stone sinks. Another cool design feature is the cabinet hardware – it is all hand-forged so no two pieces are exactly the same.
A pocket door from master bathroom leads to small office. Our client uses the space as a place of respite and household management. We added a TV, lots of flexible storage options, a large desk and comfortable seating.
Beyond the office is the master closet, which was custom designed for the clothing of the homeowners. The space is set up for that functionality. Upper storage cabinets allow for seasonal storage and a center island provides drawer space. The island is topped with an awesome piece of marble. A window seat, canned lighting and a chandelier compete the space.
