The design concept for this new built-in is a beautiful antique European cabinet. The built-in has been designed to create the look of an antique piece of furniture with the beauty of architectural details including intricate molding, breathtaking sconces, and intriguing elements such as wallpaper and accent lighting.     The new bookcase will be 12ft high in order to rise up and meet the same eye level as the upstairs passageway. This piece is also longer as it reaches towards the kitchen to utilize more of the wall.    In the back of the bookcase, we will use designer wallpaper from Signature Jordan,LLC. It has a beautiful classic European design with a glimmer of metallic detail to make it reflect the light in the bookcase.

Before Picture- Existing Built-in



   The magnificent wall sconces that are 6’ tall with a 15” projection will be stunning on each projection panel. (See picture of sconce) Electrical needs to be fed into the projected panels (see image where the sconces will be placed). In addition, up-lighting to go in the top of crown molding on bookcase so lighting can shine up to ceiling. Lastly, down lighting needs to be installed in the ceiling of the built-in to wash down the wallpaper on the inside back of the bookcase. This will allow the metallic to shine.    Entire built in to be painted Ben Moore : Cromwell Grey- HC 103- except for the four projections with the sconces that are to be painted Ben Moore: Bennington Grey HC-82. These colors are part of the Historic Color collection. A collection of time-honored hues that comprises the most popular palette.

     The Details on the Keystones at the top and the cabinet doors are to mimic the same detail as on the chest of drawers pictured.  Faux finishing to be done to replicate the distressing of the chest of drawers on the built-in’s cabinet doors.   Antique leather books to go in random places in bookshelf portion
