After moving into our home a year ago, it felt like a constant struggle to find furnishings and décor to finish! When I’d find the perfect counter stools, they were out of stock. When I’d find the perfect coffee table, the lead time was months out. And I’m sure you’re all familiar with this and possibly facing the same things! So here we are a year later, posting our long awaited PDCo Home reveal! I’m excited to share the elements that blend textures and colors to bring in depth and warmth! Before we jump in, I wanted to note that we have blog posts that outline the whole process. I’ll have some linked throughout this post as well!
Kitchen of my dreams
Even playing “house” as a little kid, you start to dream up your own kitchen, right!? Of course, once you get older those dreams become more and more extravagant. I love that I now get to share something that started to bloom in my heart as a child!
The earthy tones and natural materials that you’ll see through the entire home truly welcome you into every space. This is perfectly portrayed through our kitchen. The first thing I knew I wanted is an island for gathering around. It’s the precious moments baking with Finn and she’s able to climb up onto a counter stool. She loves to help in the kitchen, doing dishes and playing in the water in the sink. My favorite part of the island is the paneling detail we added to the back. It adds so much character and texture. I carried this detail over in the pantry, and it’s something I obsess over!
I selected a grey quartz countertop that has a lot of variation in detail and tone. You can read about how we decided on our countertops here! It paired beautifully with our cabinets and has such a soft feel without stark contrast. I wrote a whole separate blog post on our cabinets here, but I’ll do my best to summarize! Two things I knew for sure is that I wanted white oak and an inset detail with a slab door. We had to go through a whole lot of trial and error with the stain because of the inset detail. In the end the amazing cabinet crew at Faber were able to get us the look we wanted and we didn’t have to compromise on style or color!
As an overall aesthetic, I didn’t want high contrast anywhere. This held true for the hardware, as black would have packed too much punch. I searched high and low for a warm brown tone, and found it with the Top Knobs brand at Spokane Hardware/Hardware Hut. I’ll be sharing a full post on hardware soon! The warm tones in the hardware paired beautifully with the satin brass accents throughout, like our faucet from California Faucets and oversized pendants! For the backsplash, I selected a glazed zellige tile from Riad Tile with uneven edges and texture on the surface. This added so much visual texture to our kitchen!
When drawing up the plans for PDCo home, I knew I wanted an open concept that connected the kitchen, family room, dining room and even the entry seamlessly. The trick was to make sure these spaces blended and complimented each other without competing! Another element we added to the home is an outdoor/indoor aesthetic. The family room shows this off the best! We placed the three panel sliding door on the west wall of the family, arranging the house plans perfectly so that we’d always have the perfect view of the setting sun. I wouldn’t trade the glow it pours into our home in the evening for anything!
We are located in the PNW and because of this, a fireplace was non-negotiable. But also, who doesn’t want a pretty fireplace in their home?! We worked with our favorite local dealer Falcos to find the perfect design, since I had a pretty specific idea of what I wanted for the interior media kit. More information coming on this soon! We went with a very simplistic surround with built-in ledge, and brought the whole thing up to the ceiling. We can’t express enough how happy we are with the Samsung Frame TV for our family room! It’s amazing how many people still don’t know about this TV that looks just like an art piece! I’ve also made a blog post with all the different pictures we love that you can display on your TV!
The dining space sits right next to the kitchen, in a little bump-out of the house so it still feels like its own space. Making sure this corner got lots of natural light just like the rest of our home was important, so we added another black framed window, which adds an architectural element to the space too! I selected a beautiful handmade cream and brass light fixture. I love that it spoke to the uniqueness of our home and brought a fun element into our dining space. The art piece is one I’ve loved for many years, and it brought so much life to the room! I look forward to freshening up the furniture and rug in the room in the future, but for now, it’s the perfect stress-free zone for playdough parties and food messes!
I added this powder room in after reworking our plans and I can’t believe at one point I thought we wouldn’t need it! It sits right off of our entry and is a little gem of our home. The vanity matches the custom oak cabinet stain that we have throughout the home. But in this room, I had the idea of playing off the kitchen paneling detail in a small scale! I love a good vessel sink and this travertine bowl was a beautiful natural element for the room. Paired with the wall mounted brass faucet, this combination brings a smile to my face every time I see it!
Walking towards our primary suite, you go through the most stunning transitional space you didn’t know you needed until now! My favorite way to dress up a hallway is a wall of glass! It pours a gorgeous amount of light in and you think of it as it’s own little room. The glass door on the left wall takes you out to our newly-paved courtyard. I’m excited for the exterior area to be furnished so we can spend summer evenings here!
Our primary suite went through many floor plan iterations over the years but ultimately I’m so happy with the end result! Our bathroom brings me just as much joy as the rest of our PDCo home – haha! The natural light definitely plays a huge role in this! We stuck to natural tones in here, which ties this space in perfectly with the rest of the home. We carried the custom oak cabinets in here, this time with a full overlay drawer set for a more modern look. The wide drawers are so functional for bathroom storage, but I couldn’t resist playing with aesthetic details like the thick quartz countertop with a tall backsplash. Brass plumbing fixtures from Newport Brass were carried in here as well and I love the warmth it brings to an otherwise neutral space.
I designed this bathroom with a big list of wishes in my mind! A soaking tub, a double walk-in shower, a double vanity, open shelves for extra storage, and a direct connection to the closet! The wet room helped to utilize the square footage the best but is also a look I love. We used a thin rectangular tile in a matte finish on the walls. The color variation between each tile added the visual interest needed for such a large area of tile. We opted-out of installing a glass shower door and I now love how the wet room seamlessly connects to the rest of the bathroom.
More to Come!
