FINISH MATERIAL SELECTIONS FOR A RUSTIC MODERN NEW BUILD
There is so much progress happening at Project Modern Oak! I seriously get goosebumps every time I go for a site visit or for project meetings. The views, the setting, the lot, the architecture, the craftmanship - they are all fabulous! The building designer did a fantastic job with how she terraced and stacked different roof lines - it adds so much interest and dimension to the exterior elevations of the modern architecture of the project.
Mean time, while the general contractor extraordinaire, and his crew keep moving the construction along, the client and I have almost finalized all the finish materials.
Throughout the house there will be wood flooring, carpet in the bedrooms, quartz counters through-out, porcelain tile on the bathroom floors, and shower walls, and an assortment of modern tiles mixed in for shower floors and over-sized soap niches.
BATHROOM & PLUMBING SELECTIONS
As is often the case with modern architecture and design, we decided to keep things simple and uncomplicated when it came to selecting the plumbing fixtures for the six bathrooms in the house. With that direction in mind, we went with the same faucets and sinks through-out but have selected different light fixtures, and accent tiles for the shower floors and over-sized soap niches.

THE TAKE AWAY
- When selecting finish materials, make sure that everything selected relates well to one another even if they aren't going to be in the same room. Consider color, texture, pattern and style - this approach will bring continuity and beauty to any project, no matter the architectural style.
- Don't hesitate to use the same faucets and sinks in all the bathrooms, especially if you are wanting a more simplified approach and aesthetic.
- Use accent tiles on shower floors for a fresh, updated look, as opposed to shower borders and small soap niches.
