This 3000 sf Custom Home built by Rumble Homes and Designed by Jeannot Vileranda Design Co. is the kind of home that many people dream of owning "one day".
We started looking for just the right engineered hardwood floor that actually corresponded with the custom board and baton exterior siding. The selection came from KentWood Floors titled North American Hard Maple Mongoose, a 7.5" ultra wide extra long product highly recommended by Kevin and Owen Flooring for a client with a young family and busy lifestyle.
In the main level Powder Room and Laundry Room our client and designer wanted to make a statement "something funky" was the term. At Owen we specialize in custom or "funky" products and service, so we quickly found the perfect product in Olympia Tile's Merino Series 7" Hex. Jeannot then suggested we combined all 5 colours as well as the multicoloured decor tile. This was the perfect selection to really make the statement our client was looking for.
Moving into the back-entrance or mudroom, Jeannot was looking for a corresponding tile with as much custom flair to it as the powder and laundry selection had. Of course Owen Flooring had a corresponding 3"x12" tile in the Olympia Tile Merino Series that we were instructed to install in a multicoloured herringbone pattern, and WOW did it turn out fabulous and because the selection was the same colours as the Powder Room and Laundry tiles, the two rooms correspond perfectly.
Jeannot felt the spare bath should keep the same theme as the rest of the wet areas, only this time maybe not as loud. Again using Olympia Tile's Merino series 3"x12" installed in a herringbone pattern, only this time only using one solid colour.... Taupe. Mission accomplished!
In the upper level bathroom (kids bath) our client was looking for something with soft grey tones that was timeless. Jeannot found exactly what our client was looking for with Olympia Tile's Timeless Series Grey Matte 12x24" both on the floor as well as the shower. Jeannot was not complete in the shower yet, she needed a bit of a spark in the shower niche and vertical strip. Although we have never used this tile before, Jeannot found the spark she was looking for with Olympia Tile's Boutique Silver, Black aluminum Blend mosaic, and once again, Jeannot chose perfectly!
The ensuite of a home like this is always a difficult decision, however in this particular case the decision was made easy with one of our favorite Olympia Tile products, the Roma Series. Using the Hex marble replica on the floor and the corresponding 3"x12" marble replica in the shower installed in a brick pattern, this ensuite plan was almost perfect. And then it became perfect when Jeannot laid out a perfectly centered niche and selected a shower floor tile and specified that the shower floor tile also be installed in the niche. The Tile was Olympia Multi Textured Hexagon Mosaic London Grey and Once again the selection was absolutely perfect!
The final selections were kitchen back-splash, fireplace and wood-wall on the stairs. The back-splash finishes off the entire kitchen and we used Urban Zebra Crayons colour Bright White. The Fireplace and Wood-wall were both done using Impex Stone's 3D Wood Collection Colour Copper and once again completes this incredible project.
The "look" of this project is not where it ends, both Owen Flooring and Rumble Homes believe in quality without compromise and that is why we specify Schluter Systems under all of our showers and floor tile, this particular project has Ditra Heat in 3 different areas. The mortar used under the tile is the best mortar the World has to offer with Germans own Kiesel Servioflex Trio. The hardwood was installed with a nail and glue assisted installation method to prevent squeaks and movement in the wood floor.
We could not have completed a project of this magnitude without a premium home builder like Rumble Homes, a great designer like Jeannot Villeranda Design Co. Amazing products, of course a quality installation team of Luke & Grace V. and Josh Myers and an amazing in house team of professionals at Owen Flooring Design Centre.
