14 Apr Moreland Drive Last Round
Just a few more shots to show you of this fabulous home. The screened porch runs the width of the back of the house and it’s glorious! We installed a gas fireplace (the plan is to mount a TV over it soon) and tiled the wall up to the ceiling. We kept the modern aesthetic skipping a mantle.
The size of the porch called for doubles. I bought 2 loveseats and 2 coffee tables! My vision for this area was to create a spot for my clients to sit with their feet up, by the fire and catch up over while the kids play in the yard. I used a large Dash & Albert outdoor rug for durability.
I also wanted to create a space for outdoor eating. In Wilmington you can eat outside 75% of the year. We stained the concrete, which gave it a beautiful gloss that I love. I chose a beefy table and all weather metal chairs.
Just off the screened porch is the mudroom. I just wanted to show off some of Christian Anguish’s work. He built us a crisp, clean, functional space based off of my simple sketch. I added an upholstered cushion (in Sunbrella fabric) for a cushy spot to sit and take off muddy boots. A space like this really allows for the mud and messy essentials to have a space of their own (that isn’t the middle of the living room floor). We’re still working on this concept at my house…..
Thanks for reading!
