The Glamorous Places 1st and Receives Honorable Mention in NKBA Awards

Exciting news! We placed 1st in the NKBA Awards in Midwest Home Magazine for “Unfinished to Undeniable” in the lower level of The Glamorous.

The Glamorous Lower Level Home Office

“When you’re starting from scratch, opportunity soars. The client wanted a space fit for function and chock-full of flair, but their requirements were unique. The room needed the ability to fit three separate purposes: a guest bedroom; a work-from-home office; and closed-off storage space. Overcoming structural challenges galore, the designers managed to nail every one of the client’s desires by sectioning the area into two hubs—first, a work station backed by gorgeous wood cabinetry, and second, a pullout Murphy bed nestled between more custom, floor-to-ceiling storage areas. What started as an unfinished, insulation-exposed lower level transformed into an elegant, functional space full of rich tones.”

We also received a honorable mention for “Patterned Parallelograms” in The Glamorous bathroom.

“The designers of this large bathroom dove headfirst into this client’s wish list: Increased storage, a steam shower, and a bigger, more functional layout. To change the footprint of the room, an adjoining walk-in closet was opened up to relocate the toilet, while other obstacles like transite heat and ductwork forced them to get creative. By using the setbacks as part of the design solution, an entire wall of cabinets was installed and the designers used dark shades and drawer knobs to create stark contrast. A standout feature of the room is the geometric quirks and shapes of the tile used throughout the bath—sandy, neutral, squares in the frameless shower, multicolored hexagons on the floor, and parallelograms-turned-arrows on the vanity backsplash. The client traded in a gutted, underutilized space for one with tons of storage and splendor.”

Thanks, Midwest Home!
