For Jessica and John, Swiss Woods in Lititz was the destination they knew that they wanted to become husband and wife!
This was my second to last interior photo shoot with Lyndon this year. I have been so thankful that I have been able to photograph his cabinetry and that we are able to work together as a team. I would have never guessed we would work together when we were first married. Now it’s my favorite part about being a photographer.
As we drove down in the morning I was anticipating seeing the individual pieces of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry throughout the various rooms in this newly remodeled Northwest DC residence. I remember hearing about this project when it was in the beginning stages of being remodeled. Walls were being torn down and were non-existent. The new layout and design was perfected over in detailed architectural drawings, specifically the kitchen. I love knowing the details, the time, and precision of the custom cabinetry that went into each space. This kitchen required meticulousness in the measuring and design as there were no existing walls, no floor, and one structural column on site that Lyndon used to measure, design, and then build the cabinetry. He was in contact with the contractor to discuss precisely where the walls needed to be placed based on previous measurements and the cabinets dimensions. This accurateness of details is noticed during the installation of the cabinets and how the cabinets fix together perfectly when the new walls and floor were in place.
In this home you will also find his custom cabinetry in the Master Bedroom, Master Closet, the Children’s bathroom, the Children’s Closets, the Powder Room, and Mudroom. We spent the day together capturing the details of the cabinetry that was once on blue prints and now were built and installed being used by the family. ENJOY!!!
First the Master Bathroom…
The vanity was made in one large cabinet and finished one site.
Below you will notice the curve that helped the transition of cabinet depth and existing drywall depth.
Her Master Closet built out of maple with a clear coat finish.
The custom drawers are all built as one run.
LHC also built the whole door to have it customized to match the inside of the closet.
The children’s closets…got me really excited for our little boy to arrive!
This unit was built with growth of the children in mind.
The shoes racks are portable and would be able to remove from the closet if needed.
The Children’s bathroom was a custom vanity that was painted on site.
The Powder Room vanity was small yet extremely difficult to build with the double bowed front.
This cabinet was custom made per the designers request out of walnut with a walnut stain.
The Mudroom is located immediately inside the side entrance of this home.
Above are the pantry cabinets that create the actual wall for the stove on the other side.
Above: The cabinet on the right was made to be hidden as the bead about replicates the inside profile of the other kitchen doors.
Above Architectural detail: In the corner the face frames widths were built to match and align perfectly.
There is much detail in this bar stool area. First it is a solid cabinet measuring in 14 feet long.
It took over 8 men to carry inside on the day of installation.
The curve was integrated into the cabinet before it was finished making it into one solid piece.
Dark rich paneling, shelves filled with collected books, and exclusive artwork displayed on the walls create an elegant style and atmosphere perfect for a custom Study. Lyndon Sentz of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry collaborated with Alexander Baer founder of Jenkins Baer Associates to design and build this custom Study. Alexander Baer is a design legend in Baltimore. He has a natural eye for design that has been fashioned over the years as he has succeeded in designing interiors. His design for this study is reflected in the wood details that are created by the walnut raised paneling and extensive crown moulding that wraps around the room. Take a step in and see the details that add the rich layers to this timeless Study. ENJOY!!!
Custom lighting highlights each shelve and selective artwork that is displayed.Behind the doors houses a TV that rises when in use.The detail in the joinery is seamless.

I am working diligently to get all the work that I have photographed this year up on the blog before our little one comes. He could be arriving later this week or three weeks from now. Either way it is good motivation for me to accomplish the to do list. With this said I photographed this master bedroom earlier in the year. Lyndon Sentz of Lyndon Heath Cabinetry costumed built the cabinetry to the newly remodeled master bedroom. The custom built cabinetry adds style as well as meeting practical needs such as shelving and storage for this residence. Take a look at the detail of the arch panels that stretches over the bed, the crown moulding the tops the cabinetry seamlessly, the creative built in dressers, a panel that hide the radiators, pull out shelve on the night stand for a cup of coffee in the morning, and the arch that puts the window on display. It is in those details that create distinctive and custom style for Lyndon Heath Cabinetry clients. ENJOY!
If you enjoyed part one you will love part two of this Harbor View Residence designed by Jackie Bayer of Amanda Austin Interiors. The warm neutral color palette greets you as your enter the front door of this home and continues to flow from one room to the next. The layers, textures, and selected custom pieces of furniture fill each room creating style that is inviting, beautiful, and full of light. Characteristics that you would want in your own home. Again, many thanks to Jackie for working along side of me as I photographed her inspiring design in this home. ENJOY!!!
This space is small yet dressy for the formal entrance to the home.
It is a little jewel box that is visible while you are entertaining in the Living Room.
The Living Room:
This is more of an elegant Family Room for this client.
Jackie describes her client’s lifestyle is without a doubt casual and yet the love to entertain and enjoy nice spaces.
The colors in this room are soft and neutral with hints of tangerine.
The Dining Room:
This is also a casual version of a formal dining room.
This space hosts dinner regularly where they sit and eat together as a family.
Look at the nail head details both on the chairs and the banquette. It’s the small details that add character to each piece.
It is the heart of this home!
In one cozy space, a gourmet cooking area, breakfast bar, and warm TV space for their young daughter.
