Here are a few samples of my work that I have done in other homes. The effects you can get with distressed wood are virutally limitless. These are just a few examples of how this might look in your home.

HGTV shows off distressed mantels in their Dream Home 2006

March 14, 2008

In 2007 HGTV went to the seaside and eventhough it is 2 years past: in 2006 HGTV showed how a luxurious and cozy log cabin is done: Rustic yet sophisticated, close to nature yet without losing the comfort of a modern home. HGTV had gone to North Carolina and picked out a prime spot for their feature home. The house is 2 years old and still up to date because of a timeless design.

In the living room of the 2006 Dream Home, pale gold walls, a massive stacked stone fireplace, intricate bark and twig detailing on built-in book cases and a soaring ceiling (topped with a magnificent beam of ancient heart pine) all combine to create the sense that you’re in a very special haven. The huge fireplace gives this big lofty space dimension as well as a focal point It’s a retreat that’s inextricably bound up with the natural world, seen through the huge windows that frame an incredible view of mountains and Lake Lure off in the distance.
