Cooking up a classic

Home1While working with the Sattar family on the design of their new-construction home in Linden Estates built by Tom Meginnis of Quest Construction, it was evident that this home would be designed around the kitchen. It was essential to combine their gourmet-cooking lifestyle with a generous entertaining space, all while maintaining aesthetic decisions in the kitchen that cohesively complemented the surrounding living and entertaining areas of the home’s main living space.


The bar area between the kitchen and dining room allows for a separate serving space, allowing guests to feel right at home throughout this dramatic space while the homeowners prepare and serve. The formal dining room includes a silver-leaf Parsons table highlighted by two oversized crystal chandeliers. The accent wall is finished in a mother-of-pearl wall covering, and large damask side panels with crystal drapery hardware finish the striking space.


The living room features a wenge veneer and leather-paneled fireplace as its focal point. Four crystal chandeliers set within the coffered ceiling draw attention to the airy height of the space. The curved walls of the study are punctuated by faux-finished trim and grass-cloth wall covering.  Providing additional layers of texture and color are the study’s fireplace, which is surrounded by crema marfil marble tiles.


The master bath includes a luxurious steam shower with multiple showerheads and a free-standing copper tub. Glass tile mosaics emphasize the floor and shower walls; the crystal chandelier and crystal cabinet knobs add ornamental elements to the room. The two-story master closet not only offers more than clothes storage, but accessories are highlighted in a boutique-style setting using mirrored and glass fronts with backlighting. A secondary washer/dryer unit along with a steam valet are tucked behind cabinet doors.


This Quest Construction build was one of the eight featured homes in Build Omaha’s Home Inspiration Tour 2014.
