Habersham Laundry Room CabinetryDoing laundry might not be on the top of everyone’s list of fun things to do, but there are ways to make this mundane task a little more tolerable! Among them, livening up the laundry room space itself.

“I have the most gorgeous laundry room,”  one of our homeowners once said, laughing and describing her fabulously appointed space and its custom styled shelving, drawers, storage and cabinets.

“Habersham offers an old world feeling with contemporary features.”

Charles Rinek has been making dreams come true since 1987.

Taking a “concierge approach” to home building, he, along with wife Jeanne, and the rest of the talented team of design professionals from Charles Rinek Construction, Inc., have brought countless dream homes to life for delighted clients in prestigious communities throughout Florida’s Flagler County.

Habersham Featured Home Custom Kitchen Design

“It’s a discovery process we go through together,” Charles explains. “Our clients tell us what they want, and we work closely with them – from start to finish – interpreting their dreams and creating exactly what they’ve been hoping for.”

Habersham Featured Home Range Hearth and Island DesignCharles and Jeanne called upon this same collaborative approach when it came time to build their own dream home in an established neighborhood nestled within Bulow Plantation Ruins Historic State Park. “We built this home around our own aesthetic,” said Charles, explaining how he and Jeanne work together — he designs the home from scratch and Jeanne focuses on the interiors. “We opted for a plantation, Georgian style in keeping with the essence of the neighborhood.”

For the cabinetry, the couple chose Habersham. “We’ve worked with a number of high-end cabinetry companies and wanted something different — something unique for the area,” he says. “We found Habersham at the High Point Furniture Market and quickly saw that it offered an old world feeling with contemporary features.”

Habersham Featured Home Custom Kitchen  Island and Wall Cabinetry

For the kitchen, the couple created an open, inviting floorplan to serve as the true gathering place of the home. “Habersham is so versatile,” says Jeanne. “Thanks to its custom capabilities, Habersham can blend into any home style and when it comes to colors, your choices are limitless.”

To bring a sense of warmth and depth to her kitchen, Jeanne chose to blend light, airy finishes on the range hearth, curio and wall cabinetry with rich, darker tones on the kitchen island and barnwood flooring.

Habersham Featured Home Custom Furniture Design

“Jeanne is also a gourmet cook so we needed the space to be extremely functional as well,” added Charles. ”We worked to make sure that the cabinetry had the ergonomic flow needed for cooking, as well as entertaining.”

Jeanne also worked with Habersham on custom furniture pieces, like the design shown near the breakfast area. “Only Habersham could reach the level of custom work we wanted,” she explains. “What we were able to achieve through Habersham is not readily available from other cabinetry makers. With Habersham, you can sit down with your rep, share your vision, and then work with their artisan team to create something custom-tailored to your every need.”

Habersham Featured Home Custom Dining Room Cabinetry

“For our dining room we were able to work with Habersham to create beautiful cabinetry that didn’t intrude into the space like a piece of furniture might,” Jeanne adds. “It’s flexible, not intrusive and it truly elevates the room. It’s quite functional too, with lighting, shelves for wine glasses, storage and a warming drawer.”

“This is not your typical ‘hutch’ and people love looking at it. Everything is so well crafted. It’s like a piece of art on the wall,” she adds.

Habersham Featured Home Custom Fireplace Mantle and Wall Cabinetry

The Rineks also chose Habersham fireplace mantle and wall cabinetry to help create a focal point in the living room. “This design is especially functional in that it frames the fireplace, provides storage for videos, DVDs and electronics,” explains Charles.

“We also collect art and porcelains and this cabinetry offers a wonderful, non-intrusive way to showcase these pieces. Art is here to embrace your life and Habersham gives us this structural component that’s artful too.”

Habersham Featured Home Custom Bar

Habersham cabinetry can be found in other spaces throughout the home, including a custom bar area, as well as a study, where its traditional, classic style comes together with modern design lines for rich effect.

“It’s part of creating an eclectic space,” Charles explains. “So often people stick to one theme or look throughout the home. I think it’s important to show life within the home by using more than one theme – whether that’s achieving light with color or by mixing trends – old with new, Asian with modern.”

“There is no singular approach to life and that applies to building too,” he adds. “It’s important to keep in mind that there is a certain familiarity that comes with diversity. That’s what makes a home so special.”

Donna and Dave Allen

“The flexible Habersham design process made our dream home a reality.”

Photography by Peter Rymwid

For Donna Allen, home design isn’t a process, but a passion. Working closely with husband Dave, she designs home interiors and exteriors for their building and renovation projects. Whether it’s a spec home or a room project, Donna oversees every element of the design process – from wrought iron exterior accents to cabinetry crown molding.

The duo has worked with Habersham on a number of projects and when it came time to build their own home, they planned to use it in one room…and just kept going.

Habersham Custom Kitchen Cabinetery  Integrated Refrigeration and More

“We fell in love with Habersham when we first saw it years ago in a designer showroom. It’s a company that truly ‘gets it’ about furniture. The pieces are well made– calling upon a time-honored design process,” says Donna. “I had a design in mind before I even started working on this home and Habersham perfectly reflected my vision.”

Since the couple’s children and grandchildren lived in Raleigh, Donna and Dave decided to pull up stakes from their home base in Alabama and move to North Carolina. The Habersham Custom Kitchen Cabinetery Breakfast Areaneighborhood they chose was in the historic Five Points area of Raleigh, so it was important to the couple to design a home that not only worked within the architectural, landscape and other certified requirements of the neighborhood, but one that blended aesthetically with the other homes and overall atmosphere as well.

“The homes here are Tudor, French Provincial, and Georgian, so we opted for a European Georgian style to maintain the integrity of the neighborhood – carrying the style from the exterior to the interior,” Donna explains. “Our home reflects our travels and interest in art and handmade craftsmanship – from the Habersham cabinetry and furniture right down to our stairway, which is all hand-turned wood.”

For the kitchen, Donna wanted a casual European elegance with a new world twist. “I wanted a casual look with a touch of whimsy,” she explains. “Your home should have your own stamp. In Europe you don’t find homes that are all French or all Italian—that’s more an American thing. Because of Habersham’s design flexibility, they allow you to make your own space unique. The design team is very open to your ideas, shows you how things can work with your colors, and then helps achieve your vision.”

Donna drew and scaled her kitchen, working closely with the Habersham team on molding choices, dimensions, reviewing board/color samples and more. “The process worked so well for me,” she says. “The Habersham team is not locked into design restrictions—rather they wanted to help me with everything I hoped to achieve.”

Habersham Custom Mantle  and Coffee Table DesignDonna had found antique, hand-carved animalia designs from the 1800s and early 1900s that she wanted to incorporate to create a “Hunt” theme. Habersham‘s artisans worked with her to paint the designs and integrate them into the cabinetry.

Playing to her sense of whimsy, there is a fox looking out from the range hood, while a dog searches for him below. Fish and fowl designs on hunt plaques tie the theme together, while Victorian rosettes above the integrated refrigeration complete the look.

In the living room area, Donna wanted to find a way to create an Old World fireplace that could work with their TV. She drew the design and again worked with Habersham to create a custom design that effectively blended Old World sensibilities with modern technology.

The family room brought its own design challenges. “I wanted a country home in the city, but with this lot and building in a city, there were limitations,” she says, explaining how they were not able to place the family room/study on the first floor. “So we moved it upstairs and made it work.”

Habersham Custom Home Office Design

To provide dual workspace so their daughter would also have room to work when she visited, Donna and the Habersham team created a “workspace office.” Each side provides plentiful, practical room for a computer, dvds, and desktop. Designed to look like three drawers on either side, the space includes one top drawer while the bottom two are actually a single file cabinet.

“The piece and its finish offer a comfortable, relaxed look, which is so important. You shouldn’t feel ‘afraid’ of using or damaging your furniture. Comfort is key,” she says.

The master bath was designed with two opposing his and hers sinks. Donna wanted an elevated backsplash, which Habersham accommodated by providing a rounded front allowing the sink and faucet area to be pushed out further.

Habersham Custom Bath Cabinetry Master Bath

“If you look in the mirror of the ‘his’ side here, you will see how we tried to create a complimentary, yet different look for the ‘her’ side with three sections of mirror and chandelier lighting.” Habersham Guest Bath Custom Cabinetry

A lovely guest bath also reflects the overall design style of the home with its casual bead board and soft, hand-styled finish.

For the bedroom, Donna and Dave were able to order a customized addition to an existing piece of Habersham to make room for a larger TV.

When they originally purchased the media center/sideboard 9 years ago, Habersham shipped it with a sample board featuring the finish from the piece. Donna was able to ship that finish board to the factory to use in matching the new piece that now sits on top and holds the TV.

The addition is versatile too, as it is designed to either sit on top as shown, or be mounted on a wall.

Habersham Custom Entertainment Center

“If you can envision it, Habersham can create it–working closely with you along the way. It is a wonderful design partnership experience,” said Donna.
