THE PINTO PROJECT

NEW BUILD- SPEC HOME- A KR RESELL PROJECT 

4 BED 4.5 BATH- AROUND 3200 SQFT- 2 STORY- 2 CAR GARAGE- BRAND NEW POOL

WELCOME TO KRAFTED RENOVATION'S FIRST NEW BUILD SPEC HOME, DESIGNED BY KARRINA ROTTER. WHEN STARTING THE DESIGN PROCESS ON THIS PROJECT WE KNEW WHAT WE WANTED THE "VIBE" TO BE- BRIGHT, COZY, WELCOMING AND SPA LIKE. BUT THE BIGGEST THING WE WANTED TO INCORPORATE WAS AN "ORGANIC" ELEMENT. 

STARTING WITH THE FRONT ELEVATION OF THE HOME, WE WANTED TO SET THE TONE SO THAT AS SOON AS YOU PULL UP, YOU GET THAT SENSE OF "AHHH." TO BRING IN THE ORGANIC FLAIR OUTSIDE WE USED A GORGEOUS DARK GREY LIMESTONE AND THEN OVER GROUTED IT WITH A LIGHT CREAM/WHITE MORTAR TO TONE IT DOWN BUT TO STILL HAVE THAT GREY UNDERTONE.

THEN WE DID THE ORGANIC SHAPED STEPS LEADING TO THE HOUSE WITH A GORGEOUSLY UNIQUE LIGHT GREY/WHITE FLAGSTONE, WITH PEA GRAVEL BETWEEN. THE GRASS AND WHITE ROSE BUSHES BROUGHT IN THAT ARCADIA LOOK TO MATCH WITH THE AREA AND MAKE THE HOME FEEL LIKE A MODERN COTTAGE. 

 

ONCE INSIDE YOU'LL SEE WE USED A LOT OR WOODS, WHITE WALLS, AND MORE STONE ACCENTS! THE KITCHEN IS A JAW DROPPING EXAMPLE OF HOW YOU CAN MIX MODERN FLAIRS WITH RUSTIC/COTTAGE CHARM. WE BROUGHT THE OVER GROUTED LIMESTONE BACK HERE AS WELL FOR THE UPPER PORTION OF THE WALL THAT IS THEM MET WITH A VERY PRETTY MARBLE LOOK QUARTZ FOR THE MAIN BACKSPLASH AND COUNTERS. WE STEPPED OUT OF THE BOX WITH THE TRADITIONAL TWO TONED CABINETS AND DECIDED TO BRING A PORTION OF THE WOOD INTO THE BUILT-IN FRIDGE TO HAVE A FRIDGE PORTION ALSO 2 TONED. TO BRING IT ALL TOGETHER WE ACCENTED WITH BLACKS AND CHROMES, AND WHAT BETTER WAY TO DO THAT THAN WITH THAT GORGEOUS BLACK AND CHROME BERTAZZONI RANGE AND OVERSIZED WHITE WITH BLACK DRUM PENDANTS. 

MOVING ONTO THE PRIMARY SUITE. THIS IS WHERE WE WANTED THAT SPA LIKE VIBES TO SHINE! FOR THE BATHROOM, WE BROUGHT INSIDE THAT FLAGSTONE AND ALTHOUGH IT FELT RISKY, ONCE LAID WE KNEW IT WAS THE STAPLE ITEM THAT MAKES THIS BATHROOM STANDOUT AND BRING THAT SPA VIBE IN. THE OVAL, ORGANIC SHAPED STONE BATHTUB WITH WHITE RIVER ROCKS UNDERNEATH WAS ANOTHER DECISION THAT WAS RISKY BUT WORTH IT! TO TIE IT ALL TOGETHER AND PULL IN THAT NATURAL ORGANIC FLAIR WE ACCENTED WITH THE WOOD PILLARS AND REEDED WOOD VANITIES. THIS BATHROOM MADE US WANT TO KEEP THIS HOME, THATS FOR SURE!

THROUGH OUT THE HOME WE BROUGHT IN MANY NATURAL/ORGANIC ELEMENTS, MOSTLY WITH THE TILE. DOING A LOT OF NATURAL STONE, ROCK SHAPED STONE FLOORING, MUTED OR SUBLE DECO TILE, AND SIMPLE SHOWER WALL TILE. 

THE LAST AREA REALLY WORTH DISCUSSING IS THAT GORGEOUS BACKYARD! WHEN THE NEW OWNERS ASKED IF WE WOULD DESIGN AND BUILD THEM A POOL, WE JUMPED AT THE OPPORTUNITY! WE HAVE ALWAYS JUST REMODELED POOLS AND HAVE DONE SIMPLE LANDSCAPE DESIGNS, BUT THIS WAS KARRINA'S FIRST TIME DOING A FULL NEW POOL & LANDSCAPE DESIGN! SHE KNEW SHE NEEDED TO MAKE THE FLOW BETWEEN INSIDE AND OUTSIDE SEAMLESS AND WANTED THAT BACKYARD TO FEEL LIKE A RESORT! SO WE BROUGHT THAT FLAGSTONE OUT THERE TO FLOW FROM THE FRONT, INSIDE INTO THE THE BACK, WE USED IT FOR THE PATIO, DECK AND EVEN FOR THE POOL COPING. SHE WENT WITH AN ORGANIC YET MODERN POOL SHAPE WITH THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE POOL BEING THOSE DECK JETS TO GIVE THE NEW OWNERS WATERFALL LIKE SOUNDS EVEN WHEN SITTING INSIDE. BUT TO TRULY MAKE THIS AN OASIS, WE WENT WITH LUSH, FAST GROWING TREES THAT WILL ONE DAY SOON COVER THAT BACK WALL, ADD PRIVACY HEIGHT, AND MAKE THAT BACKYARD TRULY FEEL RESORT LIKE! 

SO HERE SHE IS! TAKE A LOOK FOR YOURSELF AT THIS ONE OF A KIND HOME-
