Modern Rustic Retreat
After a yearlong renovation, the dust has finally settled and Dr. Stephen A. Morgan Jr. and Amanda Morgan are enjoying the serenity of their updated modern, yet rustic space. Enhancing the character of the home with the addition of wood beams, floors and doors while finding a balance with muted colors and curated décor, creates the perfect combination of casual elegance the homeowners desired.
Once the decision was made to update their home located in a quiet area of Barrios, Stephen and Amanda decided to begin with a remodeling of the backyard, adding a pool for their whole family to enjoy. The following year, they met with Weimer Contractors and Weimer Designs and immediately knew they had found the right fit. Working hand in hand with the construction manager Tina Weimer through the entire process, the Morgans and Tina became dear friends.
“Tina’s entire team became a part of our family, and even though we had to move out of our home for a year, it was worth it. Tina created exactly what we had envisioned for our home.” – Amanda Morgan
The home’s floorplan was completely reconfigured. Tina transformed the five bedroom, four full bath and two half-bath home into a four bedroom, three full bath and two half-bath home. The final layout includes a new side entrance, as well as a media room that was created by enclosing the garage. Moving additional walls allowed for a new mud and laundry room in one area and an enlarged master bedroom and bath in another area.
To put the finishing touches on home’s interior, Amanda enlisted the expertise of Meagan Stansbury, interior designer, party planner and owner of Grace Design Co. Meagan filled the Morgans’ home with meaningful artwork and pieces that were hand selected, creating a layered look with color and textures.
The home’s exterior also received an updated and polished look with tidy landscaping by Jeff Authement, owner of Infiniscapes Grounds Maintenence Group, as well as seasonal flowers that provide the perfect pop of color.
