Every parent has mixed feelings about sending their youngest child out and into the world. Some mourn the speed of time. Some celebrate the newfound independence (their child’s and their own). Some downsize into smaller homes. And some, like this forward-thinking couple in Wellesley, remodel the upstairs of their home to create the master suite they had always wanted.
Mastering the elements.
Every renovation comes with its own style, and this Wellesley master suite addition is no exception. Built over an existing home office, the suite comes into its own, complete with walkout balcony. The room basks in natural in light; its neutral palette of lavenders, rich browns, and stormy grays are perfect for a room charged with refreshing and relaxing its inhabitants.
Above all, what this bedroom suite masters is the view. From the second floor vantage, its Pella windows and doors capture the interior and exterior details, from the mouldings and mullions to the changing landscape of the treetops. And the best part: the Phantom retracting screen door that lets fresh air in–and keeps bugs out–without drawing attention to itself.
Sink Into Style
In the bathroom, a richly stained vanity separates the gorgeous marble countertop from its coordinating hexagonal floor tiles and anchors the room with firm feet. The bathroom features hidden and open storage, undermount sinks, and a place for everything, which makes for clean lines and a cleaner room in general.
Awash in Modern Elegance
The shower features smoky glass tiles surrounded by a full glass enclosures, keeping in the warmth while letting in all of that gorgeous natural light. The bathroom features sinks, faucets, and shower fixtures from Waterspot.
Living the Master Suite Life
The difference between a master bedroom and a master suite is often in how it makes room for life outside of sleeping and grooming. Here a desk, built-in bookcase, and chaise make themselves at home, so the owners can, too.
The Outside Perspective
The mark of every exceptional remodel is in making it look as though it had always been there; thanks to Shannon Taylor Scott Architect, this 1920s home looks as though the master addition was a part of its original plan.
This project was rewarding on a number of levels. The best part for us at JM Construction was knowing these homeowners get to start a brand new phase of their life without having to uproot themselves. They are still surrounded by the friends, neighbors, and the city they love with plenty of adventure ahead–only now they don’t have to leave home to find it.
