The building owners chose to restore the carriage shed and transform it into a vacation cabin rental with a modern twist. Light colored cabinetry complete with Top Knobs Pewter Cup Pulls off-set the darker elements of the room, including a reclaimed oak floor and backsplash.

Pewter Pine cabinetry added a contrast against the white and stainless appliances which were completed with Top Knobs Mercer Tab and Appliance Pulls.

The owners of the bathroom wanted to take advantage of the natural light in the shower area while still ensuring their privacy. This natural light spills over into the bathroom vanity which is made up of pure white quartz and rift white oak, finished off with Aspen and Europa pulls from Top Knobs.

The zen inspired bathroom featured a standing tub with a waterfall faucet and a separate shower space. A custom vanity topped with marble granite and a widespread faucet was completed with Oil Rubbed Bronze pulls from Top Knobs.

The unique space combines a rustic, industrial and luxury look to create an eclectic design. The room features a mix of reclaimed wood, steel and modern fixtures including a vanity made up of a reclaimed wooden slab. To complete the rustic look, the vanity includes Top Knobs 3″ Bit Pulls in Patina Rouge.
