Stone was a major player on the exterior of this home- covering the majority of the house to create warm, inviting vibes as you approach the wooded land this house sits on. We added dark vertical siding and metal roof accents along with rich wood tones to create a traditional and timeless look that doesn’t interfere with the amazing views.
Material selections are a large part of our process as a team. We spend countless hours sourcing, scaling in the size of lighting and fixtures into elevations, presenting, then working from client feedback to come back with the approved designs. We always like to have a cohesive feel across rooms, with little surprises along the way in certain finishes to give a fresh look. In this home, the main living areas were all about the large floor-to-ceiling windows, rustic beams and forged iron lighting and hardware details. The primary bedroom and bathroom really leaned into a much lighter and brighter color palette which makes for a big impact as you transition into these spaces. Natural stone and tile, varied wood tones and forged iron were the focus of our material selections. We balanced those more masculine materials with creamy whites, floral wallpapers and polished nickel finishes to bring a feminine touch to the design.
Interior elevations helped us to communicate our more detailed ideas to both the client and builder. These drawings are important to help sell clients on how materials will work together. This client had spent a lot of time thinking about how each room would be used and what storage/organization they would need. We love to incorporate those thoughts in this stage to make sure the design is not only beautiful but functional.
We loved having the opportunity to work with these kind and appreciative clients, they were truly so sweet and patient through the process. We are so happy to be a part of welcoming them home to the midwest for their new stage of relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends.
