The Trista Design 1

We’re back with another lower-level refresh! This lower level was also unfinished when our clients reached out to us, so we got to have some major fun designing this space out!

In addition to the lower level, the Trista will also receive a main level fireplace wall refresh and a new staircase. 


This lower level is completely unfinished. We will add a large entertainment space with a bar, a bathroom, and a gym. The owner’s bedroom will get a facelift with a fun shaker-style board and batten wall where the bed is currently. These clients already bought a new dresser from Room and Board, and we think it’ll look so good in this space.

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.

As the pictures show, this lower level is completely unfinished. We will add in a large entertainment space with a bar, a bathroom, and a 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.

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.

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.

The bar will go here. It will have tower cabinets on either side and lots of counter space and outlets for all the crockpots that will be brought over for future entertaining.

Designs and Selections


Owner’s Bedroom

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.

Lower Level Living 

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.

Lower Level Bathroom

Accent walls are all the rage right now. 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!

These renderings perfectly show the client’s vision for their home.

We think these are absolutely dreamy and think this will make their home exactly what they have always wanted and more. 

Owner’s Bedroom 

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

Main Level

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.

Lower Level 

OK, how fun is this lower level?! 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.

We love Jordan from Willaby Way and her amazing renderings. They truly bring the space to life that we spent so much time envisioning and dreaming about!
