These clients wanted to give their South St. Vital home decor a refresh, with new elements maintaining a connection to the look and feel of the home’s original millwork. Working with the homeowners to imagine their vision, Lead Designer Charles Kimball applied complementary materials and color tones to enhance the home’s existing paneling and lighting, and collaborated with Construction Lead Chris Lofto to coordinate new design features within budget and structural viability for this kitchen and bathroom renovation.
True to the homeowners’ wishes, a strong, foundational balance of function and design between the bar’s new and existing elements is the ideal union between style and practicality. The marbled pattern adorning the surface of new Bianco Antico Granite bar countertops imparts a bold, eye-pleasing texture, creating a focal area within the room’s more solid colors. Stainless steel brings a soft gleam to the bar’s new Wessan sink beneath the Brushed Nickel Glacier Bay faucet, essentials for this client’s renovations. The subtle composition of the ledge above the bar, deep brown Emperadoro quartz with lighter veins peeking through, bestows an understated classiness to the space.
The ensuite bathroom’s velvety matte Piatra Grey countertop is a perfect addition to the vanity below the mirror, accompanied by an Aquabrass faucet from the Madison collection atop the seamless Kohler Verticyl sink. The installation of a simple, custom glass shower door adds an intimate touch to enrich the room’s current design.
In the mudroom, gorgeous maple cabinets stained with dark Espresso unify the lighter colors of the room’s flooring and furnishings with a flair of charm. The custom flooring is a sensible light gray, fitting for the home’s casual entryway stop and storage area. In addition, the installation of new backsplash tile revitalizes the kitchen, and fresh new flooring gives the foyer a facelift.
Project Manager Shay Stimpson worked with the Premier team to ensure that all renovated components aligned with the client’s wishes to complement existing designs and millwork within the home. Drawing from the selection from Premier Design Centre in Winnipeg’s Exchange District, choosing attractive, affordable design materials was a simple process. With Premier’s Integrated Project Delivery methods and team-based dynamic, these homeowners avoided any overages, last-minute changes, or timeline delays, effectively maintaining their budget and timeline throughout the project while delivering the home of their dreams.
