The main open living space features a long wet bar, a dining/game table and a large media space, with an additional seating area at the base of the stairs for reading and/or conversation away from the TV. The wet bar was designed to house the appliances the family required, with floating shelves over the centrally positioned sink. Easy to clean, family-friendly materials were selected for the flooring; a plush carpet for the living space, and a medium grey, textured tile for the kitchen and bathroom.

This custom home was built for an active family of five. Red and orange were identified as two favorite colors of this family, which was fitting as those are both active hues. The palette also includes neutrals to offer a visual break from the intense colors the family wanted to incorporate into their design.

Vintage charm and a sunny color palette topped this homeowner's wish list for their open-concept kitchen, eating, and great room. The illuminated airy kitchen has bright white preimeter cabinets, granite countertops with veining similar to marble, and handmade gray glazed ceramic subway tile backsplash.

With a neutral color palette, the use of texture played a key role in the design solution. Throughout the design process, special attention was paid to the use and integration of unique finish selections, which offered visual interest.

Form and function must always be considered in design, especially for a busy couple with a growing family who also work from their home. Careful attention was paid to the integration of built-ins and storage, along with beautiful finishes, for a seamless work/life fit.

The designer, builder, and homeowner carefully considered all aspects and details of the home to create a classic, contemporary design. The client wanted the home to be timeless, not trendy, so the design elements could stay fresh and current for years to come. Specific finishes were selected to accommodate.

The design of this home evolved from the desire of the clients to downsize to a smaller, more contemporary home. All materials for the project were thoughtfully selected with easy maintenance in mind. The clients’ intent is to age in this home, so elements such as an elevator and an open floor plan will stand the test of time.
