The Nebraska/Iowa chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers' mission is to communicate the impact of interior design to enhance the human experience as it relates to designed spaces. With that in mind, every year ASID hosts an event called “impactFULL” where ASID interior design members are given the opportunity to submit their best projects of the year.
A panel of judges carefully assesses each project and considers how effectively the interior designer accomplished the goals in categories such as aesthetics, functionality, space planning, and sustainability.
Interior designers are awarded gold, silver, or bronze designations in both residential and commercial categories.
— Courtney Otte, communications director of the Nebraska-Iowa chapter of ASID

Bespoken finishes infuse rustic charm into the modern basement, forming the perfect union of domestic utility and alluring elegance. A presentation of sentimental objects stands in harmonious contrast with time-worn salvaged materials and the interplay of light and shadow.

A remodeled open main floor is now connected to the backyard through the kitchen and a convertible sun room. Adequate circulation space and custom finishes allow daily functions and entertaining to be performed with ease. Most importantly, a master bedroom addition gives the homeowners the ability to age in place.

Inspired by their travels to the Palm Springs area, a love of the artist Shag, and a desire to simply have a house that would make the homeowner happy when she walked inside, this major renovation achieved a clean, fresh, midcentury modern look and emulated the feeling that a Shag painting evokes—a Palm Springs ambience.

A collection of warm tones was selected for the upholstery fabrics and carpet, while the wall color and accent colors trend toward cool and contemporary. A mixture of putty, stone, charcoal, thundercloud, seal gray, slate, and citron perfectly answers the challenge.

This design reflects the homeowner’s clean, classic, taste with a contemporary twist. Soft, gray neutral tones were used to contrast with the dark, rich wood floors. Deeper color was strategically placed to accentuate architecture. Bright white cabinets and trim create a crisp contrast, and natural stone finishes add texture.

This design brings in bursts of color through the furniture, artwork, accessories, and the use of textured wall coverings. The bright red sofas and lime green accents provide a major focal point. Contrasting darker gray trim and doors added a clean, crisp look; using taupe and gray for the main walls brings in warmth.

This new construction home features edgy curb appeal. Some of the design features include rustic wood ceiling beams, original cable railing design, rift oak cabinetry, large scale concrete gray porcelain floor tile, and open shelving on a reclaimed Old Chicago style brick wall.

The Street of Dreams design needed to appeal to a wide audience. The design features a mix of light and dark tones. Highlights include a large island with a waterfall edge, a linear fireplace surrounded by oversized tile, and a linear floor drain in the master shower. Great design gave continuity to the space.

The project mandated attention to detail, requiring a renovation that would incorporate modern amenities while still involving every architectural and design detail from yesteryear. A thoughtful use of appropriate hardware, leaded glass, and glazing keeps the historic look alive and allows the addition to blend seamlessly with the rest of the home.

The goal was to create a Balinese-styled high end vacation home. The design incorporates colors and fabrics that evoke a resort feel. An oceanic color palette, access to the pool and the ocean, and seamless outdoor eating and lounging areas create a tropical paradise.

This kitchen design achieves a modern clean look without becoming stark and cold. The white perimeter cabinets brighten the space while the dark gray island becomes the focal point in the center of the room. A glass tile backsplash, colorful art, accessories, and textures were added to keep the space fun and vibrant.

The design of this new construction home incorporated a multitude of stain and paint finishes, as well as combinations of textures, patterns, and colors to create an environment that would appear acquired and approachable. Intricate detailing in every space was incorporated to achieve a high-end custom home style.
