The home’s luxurious feel was created using metallic gold tiles, clean finishes, glamorous touches, and high contrast with black walls, black ceilings, and crisp white floors.
This new-construction project in Elkhorn posed a welcome challenge—how does a team of designers meld their clients’ two very different visions for their brand-new dream home into one spectacular design? Together, designers Kris Patton and Melanie Fuller with Interiors Joan and Associates and R & A Builders worked to create this very special residence.
The husband envisioned a high-contrast, hotel lounge look for their new home, while the wife craved a comfy, inviting feel. With a young, growing family, they knew that open spaces and great sight lines to keep a watchful eye on the children from all living areas were necessary elements.
The home’s luxurious feel was created using metallic gold tiles, clean finishes, glamorous touches, and high contrast with black walls, black ceilings, and crisp white floors. A black tile was used throughout the main floor to give the whole home contrast. The integration of warm woods, a warm natural stone on the fireplace, and warm chestnut accents help ground the home, giving it a livable, cozy feel.
Furniture selection included pieces that had a midcentury style to them, lending a clean, modern feel, while layered details helped add texture and elements of comfort to the the final look.
The clients’ courage to adhere to their own unique tastes and their willingness to trust the designers’ ability to bring those visions to life in a cohesive way allowed this stylish home to come to fruition.
