DESIGN & DECOR ROOMS TO LOVE Timeless and Sophisticated Robin Garceau bestows this custom build with transcendent design elements and a stately fireplace at its center. PHOTO GR APH BY A ARON US HER F R O M T H E D E S I G N E R : “When longtime clients approached me with a desire to build a new home, we created an original semi- open floor plan based on their priorities. As with their other homes, they requested that a comprehensive fireplace wall make a statement. The custom grille pattern I designed for the flanking transom windows was then carved into the solid black walnut, creating a one-of-a- kind mantle. Although apprehensive about the seven-foot height, they trusted my lengthy experience as well as my creative vision. Unique details incorporated into the ceiling moulding and light fixtures added balanced architectural elements. Finished with a warm inviting color palette woven throughout their furnishings, they love the end result, as it delivered the sophisticated elegance they were looking for.” Robin Garceau Interiors To learn more about Robin Garceau Interiors, see page 30 | | 24    RHODE ISLAND MONTHLY’S NEST | 2020 @robingarceauinteriors | @robingarceauinteriors
