Lyndon Heath Cabinetry: Northwest DC Residence

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!!!

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.

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.

Lyndon Heath Cabinetry: Towson Residence: Master Bedroom

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!

AAI: Jackie Bayer, Harbor View Residence (part one)

I am excited to share with you this Harbor East Residence designed by senior designer Jackie Bayer of Amanda Austin Interiors. This was my first project that I worked along side of Jackie to photograph a completed residence she designed beautifully. We worked from one room to the next to capture all the details and layers designed selectively for her client. It amazes me how each room is full of details, layers that compliment one another and that ultimately create unity in a space that reflect Jackie’s client desires and style.

Jackie kindly shared with me all the details and thoughts that went into each space in this residence. I truly appreciate the details that go into each space as I know there are hours of pulling inspiration, selecting the fabrics and colors, and purchasing the perfect pieces.  All these things when express can help you appreciate the importance of the smallest detail in each photograph. It is in the details that make a space complete. So when you look at each photo, pause and see the smallest detail. Again, thank you Jackie for allowing me to photograph your design work! Here is part one. Enjoy!!!

The Media Room:

This room was made for football season as Jackie’s clients are sports fanatics.

Family and friends often share this space to enjoy the games.

There is a full custom bar with limestone countertops, glass tile, and walnut cabinetry that houses a kegerator for game days.

Jackie designed this room to be casual enough for watching sports, and yet stylish since it is their second family room.

Master Bedroom:

Neutral colors layer this room creating a soft, warm, and cozy feeling.

It is a quiet space with the hints of the traditional taste of Jackie’s clients.

The the creamy linen drapery around the windows frames the view of the water from this view subtly so the view stands out.

Jackie describes the master bathroom as a “continuations of the Master Bedroom, a neutral room with

layers of texture: river rock, natural tile, organic adornments all tied together by a custom vanity with all of the conveniences desired. “

The Guest Room:

This rooms that has a view of the Inner Harbor and is one of the only rooms with a deep paint color.

The deep navy and crisp white are a perfect combination.

AAI-Jackie Bayer_817AAI-Jackie Bayer_818AAI-Jackie Bayer_819AAI-Jackie Bayer_820

The Study:

This spaces double as a playroom for the client’s daughter as well as a workstation for the client.

This room easily handles the art and crafts.

Yet it is the custom book cases and sophisticated leather chair and ottoman that create a tidy and tailored style.
