Attention Is In The Details

March 30th, 2012 | Tales Of Upper Hillsborough

In my last post on the Tales of Upper Hillsborough, I shared with you the renovation of our third floor attic atelier suite in our vintage Charlottetown triplex. Click HERE to read the whole post.

Today I wanted to share with you a few tips on how to create a great look for a reasonable cost. Just remember, when you're trying to make a place look its best, attention is in the Details. 

James had the old vintage radiators stripped and sealed to give a warm patina glow:

New beadboard painted cream with linen draperies from Restoration Hardware give a vintage feel throughout the suite:

Subway tiles with a classic black band complete the shower enclosure:

A shaker cabinet with half moon pull, butcher block counter, beadboard back splash and open shelving with hand-forged brackets keep our attic atelier firmly grounded in the past:

We LOVE referencing the past without getting bound by the conventions of historical accuracy... at least as it pertains to this once-forlorn shackarrific triplex. Now it feels like Home! Do you agree?

You can ready the on-going journey of our vintage triplex in our blog called The Tales Of Upper Hillsborough.
