This customer wanted the Renovisions Team to create a home office/ Library away from his Boston office in the hustle & bustle of the city. He also wanted to use this space to entertain colleagues and guests when visiting from out of state.
He approached us requesting to have this newly re-built space to have the look and feel of a Montana lodge he recently visited (see photos below).
First, we removed the existing ceiling to open up the space and finish as a cathedral ceiling. We added a large ridge beam which was wrapped in rustic wood to give it an old world look. Several recessed lights were installed on dimmer switches and 2 ceiling fans were installed along the ridge beam for air circulation.
The idea was to create a cozy organic outdoor natural feel by incorporating rustic wide plank oak flooring with a dark walnut stain and high gloss finish to create an old, antique look which gave a lived in and comfortable feel to the room.
Custom bookcases which were painted antique white were built to accommodate this homeowner’s extensive and growing collection of books.
A chimney was built from floor to ceiling and New England Fieldstone was applied to the front. A gas fireplace was installed featuring Herringbone brick inside with an arched top design atop the raised stone hearth. With just a touch of a button on a remote control these homeowners have a lifelike flame and tremendous heat to warm up any cold winter day or night.
The homeowners were elated with this very comfortable, inviting room “Renovision” and now have a wonderful retreat their entire family and guests can enjoy.
What a fabulous natural setting to showcase this customer’s bear skin rug collection!
