Contemporary Chateau

Brayton Interiors helped to completely reimagine the kitchen, living space, entry, and office in a contemporary chateau.

After many floor plan explorations between the interior design firm (Brayton Interiors), architect, and client, we ended up switching the placements of the living room and kitchen! In terms of design style, we started by taking the original architecture into account while at the same time looking to create a contemporary interior for a more current yet timeless look–even with design constantly evolving. The client and the design team leaned into creating a more zen and modern design with a pleasing scheme by adding Venetian plaster to the walls and ceiling, a marble island and splash with beautiful movement in the veining, monotone cabinetry featuring layers of subtle metal and deep green paint–which displays significant depth and bounces off the light beautifully–blackened stainless steel range hood, and a bar countertop and splash. We also added a wall of cabinetry with two shelves of lit frosted glass shelving to display the couple’s beautiful art glass collection. All of this was placed atop natural walnut floors that offered a warm foundation for all the finishes.

Another interior design service provided by the Brayton Interiors team was to furnish the new spaces with high quality pieces that were sophisticated yet comfortable and approachable. The pieces featured a variety of textures and materials to complement and create a cohesive feel with the contemporary design of the fixed finishes in the spaces.
