One of my most exciting projects yet got underway today – a Victorian cupola renovation! It is a very small space, but will be so elegant once it is complete with its many custom features.
With a new spiral stair that ascends among built-in bookcases and a glass enclosed display case, one will walk up underneath the glass top of a coffee table before arriving at the cupola level. Through the new windows a peekaboo view of the Atlantic Ocean can be viewed while relaxing on the curved, custom-built cushioned seating in the cupola. A maple laptop desk will be custom-milled as well, following the curve of the seating and extending the flowing lines of the spiral into the space. This flow along with a glass railing and the previously mentioned glass tabletop help lend a more open feeling in the space. The vaulted ceiling will be finished with stained beadboard and illuminated with LED strip lighting behind a cove at the top perimeter of the walls.
Check out the plans at my Houzz website! I will be posting progress photos as it takes shape!
