A solid teak counter finished in oil and a natural cork floor bring warmth to this kitchen.
My three favourite materials come together in this kitchen renovation project. I made a virtually indestructible concrete counter-top with a selection of local aggregates, iron oxide pigments and high-tech admixtures. The surface is seeded with mother-of-pearl and features some inlaid fossils. Bamboo panels make up all the casework and cork tiles cover the walls. Best of all, the kitchen works wonderfully, and is a pleasure to use.
With the addition of a new cork tile floor and backsplash, custom tiled mosaic countertop, sink, appliances and door handles this 1980's kitchen was so convincingly renewed that visitors thought the entire kitchen had been redone.
The sinuous curve of this custom-built vanity top adds a dynamic element to a long, narrow bathroom. The bathroom features a restored claw-foot tub, recycled 1950’s steel kitchen cabinet doors, a custom-made shower curtain rod, a heated black granite floor with white marble inlays, a skylight and wall-to-wall tile.
