This renovation is in North Falmouth, Megansett, in an 1890’s charming antique cape. This home has been part of this family since 1962, and the owners wanted to bring the space up to date. They enjoy summers here with their children and grandchildren and wanted the space to meet the needs for large gatherings.Cabinetry is Seville, Beaded inset cabinetry with exposed black finial hinges and hardware. The finish is a painted – Dove White perimeter and an Anonymous gray island, both custom color matched. Styling was very important to the client yet the space left challenges to the design. Working with existing skylights, relocating a few, and incorporating the dropped beam to integrate with the clean lines of the cabinetry was a challenge.Due to the age of the house, the builder, Builder Jim Dexter had to be clever on how pipes were run to the new upstairs baths with the limited amount of room of the floor joists. Working together, the design was massaged to incorporate and integrate the conflicts and chases into the cabinetry and finish carpentry. The ceiling height over the island- just a mere 86” left the selection of the island lights critical. Interior Designer Michael Harris worked with the homeowners to select the lighting and the window treatments to complete the room.The scalloped shelves in the side board, beadboard panelling and warm wood floor complete the room with authentic finishes true to the character of the existing home.Pulling the same feel into the 3 new baths, herringbone floor tile, subway tile, Vintage style lighting and hardware and white custom vanities with carrera tops, the renovation was complete.Builder – Jim Dexter, Creative DesignInterior Designer – Michael HarrisAll design and project management Gail O’RourkeCabinetry – Seville CabinetryHardware – Emtek HardwareCounters – Skyline MArble and Granite, The Stainless Guys, Granite Metal ServicesAppliances – Crane ApplianceInstaller – Richard KinkadeCustom Shelves – John Russo Woodworking
