When Casey first toured this 550 square foot attic space in a 1912 Seattle Craftsman home, it was dated, lacked function because the pitched roofline was not thoughtfully considered and the updates made 10 years prior were worn, to say the least. The homeowners wanted to transform their existing master bedroom and bathroom to include more practical closet and storage space as well as add a nursery with a built in bunk for naps with the baby.
The renovation created a purposeful division of space for a growing family, including a cozy master with built-in bench storage, a spacious his and hers dressing room, open and bright master bath with brass and black details, and a nursery perfect for a growing child. Through clever built-ins and a minimal but effective color palette, Casework was able to turn this wasted attic space into a comfortable, inviting and purposeful sanctuary.

Be consistent with metal finish choices
Casework usually sticks with two. For this project, our client selected brushed brass and matte black. While one metal finish throughout has a more formal feeling, be thoughtful when choosing the finish; they often vary from brand to brand.
When blendING styles, we look for balance and contrast
Think of each piece as a family and while they don’t have to come from the same store, there should be a common thread. That could be color but also finish or sheen. Balance those pieces based on their proportion, material or finish to create a unique room. Bring in a little vintage or something personal to finish it off.
