design details

At Tracery, we believe that no detail should be overlooked.  The combination of many small decisions is what leads to an completed interior that feels deliberate and customized from end to end.

As we get ready to install furnishings in a beautiful Mountain Brook, Alabama home [click here to see some photos of this home which we posted last month] that is just wrapping up construction, we thought we’d share a few design details that make this home truly special.

The first time we saw these egg-shaped crystal knobs we knew this house had to have them!  Paired with white bronze backplates this hardware elevates the experience of opening a door to a new level.

We gave an existing claw foot tub new life by having the feet silver-leafed.  We are crazy about how they look with the herringbone white Calacutta marble floor!

In the Butler’s Pantry, we love how the hammered surface of the nickel bar sink contrasts with the smooth and milky slab of Cararra Blanca marble.

More storage space was a big concern for this family of six, so we worked with the home’s architects to find as many places as possible to sneak in another cabinet or closet.  Set in the eave space too low to otherwise occupy, this built-in dresser shows off some incredible iron hardware imported from France.

Designed as a counterpoint to all the white marble found elsewhere in this home, carbon colored subway wall tile and hexagonal Lagos Azul limestone on the floor makes this bathroom sophisticated and distinctive.  We matched the color of the horizontal planking in the main part of the bathroom to the upper wall tile color in the shower for continuity.

Everyone’s been raving about the antique oak herringbone floors in this home’s Foyer since we first posted a picture last month.  When viewed from above, the effect is even more stunning!  Definitely won’t be the last time we use this detail.

We will hopefully start the move-in process for this home in the next few days, check back for more photos soon!

  1. Wow, everything looks so great. I’m such a fan of herringbone anything. It’s so subtle that the herringbone tile and wood floors “match”, it’s a detail that some would overlook but makes the home so special. Beautiful work, as always.


  2. I adore this house! It’s so beautiful!! I can’t wait to see photos after the move-in.
    The silver-leaf feet on the tub are scrumptious!
