Project Spotlight

Shrewsbury Drive Project

This month we are sharing the kitchen from a full house design project we completed a few years ago, but have yet to give it it’s rightful place in the spotlight, until now.

Brought in by builder, Padula Builders, to make finish selections for the interior and exterior of this home.

Along with making the selections, we provided the hard surface materials; cabinetry, countertops, plumbing and lighting fixtures, and tile, to furnish the custom spec home that would go on the market when complete.

Typically, when designing for a particular client we take inspiration for the project design from the client’s lifestyle, design preferences, and specific needs. This project differed in that our objective was to create a home that was uniquely special, reflecting the custom nature and quality workmanship of the home, but also would appeal to styles and requirements for an array of potential buyers.

Designing to sell

We were careful to select details and finishes that were not only clean and classic but would seamlessly lend themselves to a variety of styles allowing the new homeowner to personalize it, making the home their own.

Let’s get to the details…

For the kitchen, we went with the popular style of white shaker, but added special details like the stacked glass wall cabinets and decorative base detailing at the sink. The bright white plays a bold contrast to the stained center island which is a beautiful extension to the hardwood floors that are throughout the home.

Not only are the cabinets two-toned but we chose a leathered granite for the surround to serve as a hardworking surface for cooking and cleaning and accented the island with Carrara Marble to balance the white cabinets that surround. Polished Nickel Cabinetry hardware, pendants, and Rohl Plumbing fixtures give the perfect shine to the space.

Integrating the custom cabinetry with high end Wolf and Subzero appliances was a must to complete this welcoming and functional kitchen.

This project was unique in that we did not have a single client, we had many, to be sure that we did our job in aiding the house find new owners that would make it their home. Classic design principles and finishes never go out of style and that was proven here.

The Debut

We were thrilled when Open House Magazine offered to help us spread the word to the Long Beach Island area about the re-introduction of retail offering in our showroom. In the interview feature, Ginny, explains our vision to be a local source for unique items that are as useful as they are beautiful.

Over the past several months we have launched T&C Mercantile, the retail extension of our design brand. This natural addition allows our design clients the opportunity to complete their project vision in one place and invite customers to source products that reflect our signature style.
