I probably would have to say any project done by Backen Gillam Architects. I am always just blown away by everything they create.
I guess I would have to say tile. I like to keep majority of a homes specs (white walls, wood flooring etc.) consistent so tile is where you can add a lot of personality. Even if you are playing it safe with a white subway tile you can specify an updated subway size and install in an interesting pattern.
I searched high and low for the perfect wood flooring. Nothing even came close to the Hallmark Alta Vista line. The hardest decision was choosing which color. I am thrilled with Balboa but I’m sure would have been just as happy if I had gone with Laguna or La Jolla.
I knew I wanted white oak with oil finish. I have specified this for many projects so was very familiar with species and finish. I am however a little shocked and completely thrilled on how well they are actually holding up! My house has been used for quite a few photo shoots and few commercials so the floors have received a lot of traffic and abuse from equipment. They look just as beautiful as the day they were installed.
I like to commit to the wood floor very early on in a project. This way if I am doing any stained millwork or interior doors I can make sure all tones are all in the same family. I tape an area off on one of the boards on flooring sample and have finishers match.
Growing up I spent hours and hours at my mother and grandmother’s antique store. My aunt is an interior designer and my sister, nephew and cousin are all graphic designers. I just think designing is in my DNA. My sister and I shared a room growing up and she was a good sport about rolling with my constantly re-decorating. I really owe her for putting up with the rainbow theme I subjected her to in the late 70’s.
I always do! I have gotten more inquires on my floor than anything else in my entire home.
