Project Spotlight | Builder Home Gets A Designers Touch

This builder-grade home was one of our favorite projects of 2016. This home got a truly custom look after bringing in our design team to help with original built-in designs for the bar and media cabinet. Changing up the standard light fixtures made a big POP and of course, all the finishing details in the rugs, window treatments, artwork, furniture, and accessories made this house feel like home.

Formal Living Room 

In this large open floorplan room, we created two separate living spaces with the use of a sofa table & lamps separating the two. The first space has two sofas centered on the fireplace with luxurious pops of blue & brass. The second space somewhat mirrors the first, but to set it apart, we added some large black & white artwork to make a statement. Lastly, we tied the two spaces together with an oversized rug, matching drapery & twin side tables.

Dining Room & Custom Bar

The dining room didn’t need much, it already had beautiful natural light so we just added a stylish touch through lighting & furnishing selections. On to our favorite custom piece in this home, the custom bar! Nothing about this bar looks builder-grade, the color, custom door design, glass shelves & brass hardware add a truly luxurious touch to this home. It’s the perfect addition to the home for entertaining.

Family Room

Since this was a builder-grade home, our client needed some new furnishing that would give it a not-so-standard look. For this space, we selected an oversized rug, created a custom sectional & shadowbox coffee table as the key items. We accessorized with brass accents, double-layered window treatments & modern decor. On the opposite wall, we designed a custom built-in media cabinet to make this tv wall anything but boring. It turned out so cozy & modern!

Kitchen

Builder grade homes often come with light fixtures that are much too small & lack interest. As you can see in the before photo below, this one way no exception. In our new design, we added large statement pendant lights, chic stools, and window treatments. The 3D renderings are a great tool to help our clients visualize the overall design prior to ordering items such as lighting or furnishings. It’s truly amazing to see the difference a few simple upgrades can make in a room. For example, this kitchen had no major changes to the cabinetry, countertops or backsplash. It didn’t need too much, just a designer’s touch.

Master Bedroom

This is definitely one of our favorite Master Bedroom designs of all time! This bedroom is so luxurious, it feels more like a hotel than a builder-grade home. The blackout drapery by Simply Stunning Shades is the first step to creating that hotel room feel. Next, we added this beautiful tufted bed, large nightstands & some blush accents in the pillows & artwork. Lastly, to balance out the femininity in the room, we added this fur throw & leather bench. Simply perfect.
