Mountain Brook, Ala. –
This custom home is currently under construction, and we are having a ball designing its four floors and six fireplaces, among other remarkable details like bookmatched marble slabs, custom kitchen and pantry cabinets from Italy, decorative ceilings, wood paneling, and venetian plaster.
We want to achieve the look of an old, stately home with contrasting modern touches: custom steel doors and windows set beside a slate roof, natural stone and stone pavers, and brick.
One of our favorite architectural elements? A bridge that runs over the pool, connecting the poolhouse to the main house.
