A Peek Inside TruStile CEO’s Own Home
I imagine that if you’re the CEO of one of the country’s most respected door manufacturers, and you’re remodeling your own home, there’s a lot of pressure to make your interior door package “TRU-ly” spectacular. TruStile’s CEO, Scott Schmid, was up to the challenge and didn’t disappoint! TruStile just released beautiful photography of Schmid’s renovation to his gorgeous 1920’s home featuring drool-worthy interior doors in every room.
Schmid’s goal for the project was to “make every opening a design opportunity” and he, along with his interior designers, broke all the rules of interior door consistency when designing the eclectic renovation to his home. Most designers choose one or two door styles that complement the architectural style of the home, and then carry those styles throughout the project. I often visualize the interior doors of a home as a string of pearls that tie together the look and feel of the home’s style from room to room. On the contrary, Schmid’s designers did the exact opposite, instead choosing different door configurations, materials, and finishes to accentuate each room’s unique style.
This media room door features a luxurious Edelman’s Pampas leather panel creating a rich accent.
A mirrored pocket door is both functional and space-saving. Custom cross buck closet doors look as if they’re original to the home.
Tuxedo glass panels allow light to pass from one room to another while providing obscure privacy to the office beyond.
This mirrored powder room door features gothic arches that pay homage to the home’s French-inspired architecture.
In the photo above, this study is heavy on traditional millwork details. The interior doors were customized to perfectly match the linen fold found on the existing built-in cabinetry.
The newly renovated kitchen was given a modern touch with a cross buck barn door in wire brushed white oak. In the hallway beyond the powder room features the same door style, but instead with white lami glass panels and a painted white finish to match the beautiful tongue and groove wall treatment.
