2010 was a very busy year for my design business with 70 projects completed and about half of those basement finish projects, most in Stapleton. This basement was probably my favorite one as the homeowners really wanted to put some thought into special finishes such as built-in cabinetry and light fixtures. We ordered semi-custom cabinetry for the wine bar, media credenza and bookcase in stained alder, and play room bench seating in white paint. The bathroom cabinet is black paint topped with clean white Corian, the floor is Arabescato Carrara marble and white subway tile finishes the bathroom off in the shower. I loved that these clients wanted to have fun with light fixtures, and through my suppliers, we were able to locate fixtures which give each room a distinct personality. The result is an original and whimsical space.
