frontenac ranch addition
Designed by: Marcia Moore
This project, still in progress, is an extensive remodel and addition to a ranch home in a desirable Frontenac neighborhood. Marcia imbued a bath in the upstairs addition with both an earthy and sexy vibe—a sublime combination. Limestone on the floor and shower walls gives the room stability, while copper glass penny tiles add pizazz as an accent in the shower and on the entire vanity wall. The warmth, pattern and sparkle in the quartz countertop adds to the sexiness of this space.
Marcia transformed a plain Jane guest bathroom into a charming and feminine space. Design elements include pretty blue and green glass subway tiles in a random pattern on the wall and a stylized floral pattern on encaustic concrete floor tile. Marcia chose sleek, contemporary gray cabinets for a dash of sophistication.
Staining the existing dated paneling in the den a dark walnut tone turned the room into a moody masculine retreat. The tour de force in this space, however, was Marcia’s decision to add a massive slab of gorgeous granite to the fireplace creating a dramatic focal point.
This project is a work in progress! Come back in a few months for more photos as additional spaces in this home are lovingly restored and transformed.
