Park Ave Project: Floors & Cabinets are In!

Latest  in category

Let there be walls!

And floors and cabinets too!

The last time I walked this house for you guys there were still no walls, so the fact that we now have walls, floors and cabinets is pretty awesome! It means the end is in sight.

You can see previous walk-throughs on our Park Ave stories highlight here! Or catch up on past blog posts here and here. Ok, let’s get to it!


It’s hard to believe that this is the same space, right?? You can’t see all the way into the guest bathroom, so that is the biggest change I think.

We chose to do custom painted cabinets in each room and the color that I chose for the kitchen was Unusual Gray. It’s a green gray color. But here is the problem…I’m pretty sure that the cabinets got painted the wrong color. They look like the same color as the guest bathroom, which is a slate blue color. I’m not crazy, right? These cabinets look more blue than green, don’t they?

Now that you can’t see all the way to the front of the house, you get a better idea of the size of the room. The plan for the furniture layout is to have the media console to the right of the front door and then have an L shaped sectional sofa under the window facing it. I would love to have room for 1-2 accent chairs to maximize seating.

I have been working on designing these bedrooms as soon as Chris Loves Julia released their collaboration with Loloi Rugs. There are some beautiful options and you can see in the design boards below that I chose two of my favorites to use as the jumping off points for not only the room design as a whole, but also the cabinet colors for the bathrooms.

I finally got the bathrooms designed and the floor tile has been laid. The primary bathroom has a pretty penny tile with shades of white, gray and taupe. The guest bathroom has a marble hexagon mosaic tile and it’s gorgeous.

As I mentioned earlier, each space is getting a custom painted cabinet. The primary bathroom was painted Balboa Mist by Benjamin Moore and the guest bathroom was painted Mineral Deposit by Sherwin Williams. I cannot wait to see how these spaces come together! I love them on paper.

Exterior & Backyard

Somehow the front and back of the house look even worse than they did before. I feel like it had to get worse before it could get better. At least that is what I am telling myself. I haven’t designed the exterior of the house yet, so that is next up on my list!


I can’t wait to share my progress and updates with you as this project moves along. I have to keep the design juices flowing and get this project fully designed. I can’t wait to see it come together!
