All Images by Steve Passmore via Domino CreativeTC Millwork has had a remarkably busy last year. Early in 2012 our millworking division was hard at work on this incredible renovation. A beautiful house located on Longbay Beach had seen many changes over the course of it’s history but new owners had a striking contemporary vision for it’s future. While we refinished many of the doors and windows to coordinate with the overall look, much of the interiors were completely gutted and re-envisioned, which gave us the opportunity to create several custom woodworks. These varied from clean lined combination open shelf and cabinet door vanities to imaginative designer furnishings like the oversize sofa swings hung from the octagon shaped sitting room and the live edge walnut slab kitchen island.

Apparently I am not the only one who has had pastels permeating their April inspirations. Check out the cover of the current House Beautiful (perhaps most of you are already onto May’s but here on island we are a bit behind). This issue had me at hello and kept me engaged from cover to cover. As a creative designer for a woodworking company, I am in awe of all things wood; floors, doors, windows, furniture, fratwork, the list could go on and on. I am thrilled that this House Beautiful made the topic their cover girl and they did not dissapoint with covering her extensively throughout the issue. There is a feature on the beautiful raw work of master craftsman George Nakashima, who I agree with whole heartedly in his love of imperfections, seeing them as integral to a woods beauty and uniqueness, just like the grain. There is the fascinating and educational timeline on wood world history, the fun and informative pages on various wood names, origins, and uses, and even a last note on how best to care for your own precious pieces. For our TC Millwork clientele there are plenty of fantastic visuals to demonstrate “The New Look of Wood;” tinted, reclaimed, or washed, we would love to recreate any of these stylishly relaxed looks in your home.
