The Trista Design 1

Sharing is caring!

We’re cruising and well into construction over at #thetrista project! And being we’ll be sharing a construction update on Friday, we wanted to refresh your memories on the design behind the Trista. 

These wonderful clients hired us to finish their basement, spice up their owner’s bedroom, main level living room, new handrail for their staircase as well as close off their open foyer to give an office space upstairs! So as you can tell it’s a pretty big project but so far so good. 

Lower Level Living

As you can see this lower level is completely unfinished. We will be adding in a large entertainment space with a bar, a bathroom, and a gym.

This will be where the entertainment wall will go, complete with a state-of-the-art projector from Best Buy and a fireplace on the left-hand side.

We love how these designs have developed over time and how much fun the lower level will be, especially with the projector being a large part of the living area. Our clients wanted to make a statement throughout the space yet ensure that everything felt timeless and classic elements were incorporated throughout.

Lower Level Gym

This is where the gym will go. Complete with an accent slat wall on that back wall and a barn door so it can double as a playroom for when their newborn baby isn’t so new anymore.

Lower Level Bathroom

Since there is already plumbing roughed in, this is where the bathroom will go, and we’ve got a fun tile accent wall that we can’t wait to see come to life.

As you know, we’re all about accent walls! Especially when it comes to a tile statement wall. So we suggested doing an accent wall in their lower-level bathroom behind the vanity wall. Instead of wallpaper, we thought of doing a tile backsplash and picked this black and white tile to complement the bathroom and shower floors with the shower surround as well.

Lower Level Bar

This bar is going to be a great addition to this lower level. Entertaining is something that this couple loves to do, so they wanted an area where everyone could gather and have food and drinks. This space is both functional and fun!

Between the entertainment space and amazing projector, to the accent wall in the bathroom and the gym?! It is SUCH a fun space, and we can’t wait to see it all come to life. 

Main Level 

The fireplace also receives a facelift with black tile going up the fireplace and an accent chevron wall with open shelving on that back wall. Lastly, we will replace the current cabinets with white base cabinets.

We will rip out the staircase, and Jamie will custom-build a new one.

The contrast between the black fireplace and the light wood on the chevron wall is so fun, and we think it ties into the rest of the house perfectly. It’s a statement wall without taking away from the other elements of the main level. The staircase also adds more dimension to the space as well and brings in a modern feel.

Owner’s Bedroom

The owner’s bedroom will get a facelift with a fun shaker-style board and batten wall where the bed is currently.

The clients had already picked out the furniture for the room, so all we had to do was come up with the idea of the shaker-style board and batten wall.

The shaker style board and batten wall add texture to the space, and we love that they chose the Dried Thyme green color.
