The home was designed for an active, young family of 5. They wanted a usable, kid-friendly home for them and their guests. It was important to them that the home felt simple, elegant, uncluttered and fresh. We picked a color palette and committed to it. There are only 3 paint colors used here and we repeated throughout the inside and outside of the entire home. The color of materials is cohesive and consistent and is seen in every room. The furnishings are practical and comfy and provide plenty of seating for entertaining and playing. While the architecture is traditional, we added modern materials, fixtures and details that took it in a more modern direction. This is a home that they can grow into use for many years to come.

With an open, bright floor plan we really wanted to punch up the kitchen cabinets with a rich color. This dark blue is modern and traditional at the same time and really nightlights the marble we chose for the counters and splash. The brass accents give a fun pop to the space that’s youthful and elegant. The colors and materials create a nice backdrop for the steel pocket window that leads to the outdoor entertaining area.

The client wanted to forgo individual seats in the screening room and have sofas that the whole family could curl upon. This room is complete with a marble bar and dark cabinets to offset the gray linen walls and brass light fixtures. We chose a bright, cozy velvet fabric for the sofas and added a ruching detail to make it custom and fun. Bright color pillows and blankets set a whimsical tone to this sophisticated space.

This family room is the epicenter of the home. We used a black limestone on the entire fireplace wall to add sophistication to space and to conceal the large tv. Custom white oak bookcases off-set the dark fireplace surround and tie the flooring into space. Light furnishings and colorful accents keep the room informal and bright.

We worked with the architect and contractor to create an exterior that was traditional but had modern moments. We opted for a light gray on the brick that is used throughout the inside of the home as well. The garage doors, gates and paneling on the facade are all the same style to maintain a cohesive, simple vibe. This allows the landscaping to really be appreciated and to soften the strong lines of the exterior.
