From smart lighting and picturesque views to upgraded technology and multifunctional layouts, these features define luxe work-from-home spaces.

At-home work setups don’t have to be relegated to a dark basement corner or a sliver of space on your kitchen island.

As people continue to work from home, they’re investing in dedicated offices built to increase concentration, encourage productivity, and make it easier to connect with coworkers and clients around the globe. Read on to learn more about the highend features local housing professionals are bringing to Twin Cities-area homes.

QUIET AND PRIVATE LOCATIONS

When it comes to designing a home office space, “a priority is choosing the location — not only in the house but also where that falls on the property. Privacy, quietness, and views are important,” says Andy Johnsrud, new home and major remodeling sales for Lecy Bros. Homes & Remodeling. High-end homes are even incorporating soundproofing elements into walls and doors, he adds.

EXPANSIVE WINDOWS

Natural light is known to improve productivity and promote relaxation, so before you begin building your office, think about where your space would benefit the most from increased light and at what times of the day. “Consider choosing a picture window or skylight to bring in lots of sunlight and picturesque views,” says the team at Marvin. “Natureinspired influences and biophilic design continue to be seen in the home with homeowners opting for larger windows to promote an indoor-outdoor connection.”

Chad Rushin, director of construction for Nor-Son Custom Builders, also notes a trend toward expansive windows. Nor-Son recently converted an upper-level room into an office with “dormer windows that were expanded to bring in natural light and magnificent views of Sunfish Lake.”

SMART LIGHTING

While natural light is crucial, ambient, task, and accent lighting is also needed for high-end home offices — especially if your job entails long hours before sunrise and after sunset. Amy Hendel, principal of Hendel Homes, recalls an installation she did for one client using a CoeLux ceiling light that emulates the sun: “It’s a large unit, about 8-by-5 feet, installed in the ceiling trusses,” she says. “This homeowner has video calls around the world, so having a bright space at all times was important.”

HIGH-QUALITY TECHNOLOGY

Having the right technology to be able to execute your job remotely is the most

important aspect of designing a high-end home office. Whether you’re frequently hosting video conferences, downloading large data sets, or managing multiple projects, you may want to outfit your space with tools like multiple monitors or a smart desk that encourages standing work time and reminds you of upcoming appointments. Smart home and tech companies can help install luxe features such as AI-based voice control, advanced networking solutions, motorized shades, and even a golf simulator when you need a break from the daily grind.

AMPLE STORAGE SPACE

Nothing ruins the aesthetic of a highend office space like papers scattered everywhere or tangled computer cords. Your blueprints should include a plan to store and conceal these items. “Think of your entire day and how you work in your home office. Think of storage needs and cozy nooks you would want to spend time in,” says Hendel. “Measure how much filing space you need. We all still need space to file the paper in our life.”

MULTIPLE OFFICES

Many high-end homes feature two offices to accommodate dual-remote-working households. These may both be located in the home, but a growing trend is accessory dwelling units, which create dedicated space separate from the home but on the same property. “These smaller, standalone units first gained popularity as ‘he/she sheds’ but are now used to create entirely new spaces, like home offices,” says the Marvin team.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL LAYOUTS

Working isn’t the only activity taking place in home offices. Many homeowners opt for spaces that are multifunctional and universal to meet their work and play needs. Creating a home office that also serves as “a place to sit and have a cup of coffee or a glass of wine while reading a book is good for design and function,” says Hendel.

CHEF’S KISS

Interior designers offer seven tips for achieving a high-end aesthetic in your own home.

32 ARTISAN HOME TOUR by Parade of Homes® | ARTISANHOMETOUR.ORG

Lindsey Swanson, creative director for Carbon 6 Interiors, recalls one of the most interesting kitchens she has had the opportunity to design: A double kitchen layout featured both a presentation kitchen and a prep kitchen, the former serving as the visual appeal for guests with a wine refrigerator seamlessly integrated into the surrounding white oak cabinetry, upper cabinets with glass doors to display serving items, and a quartzite backsplash. An adjacent prep kitchen housed professional-grade appliances, double dishwashers, ample cabinetry storage, and window display shelves to showcase the homeowner’s homegrown herbs.

It was the epitome of an Artisan Home Tour kitchen.

“An Artisan kitchen is a masterpiece of personalized craftsmanship, meticulously tailored to suit the unique preferences and requirements of its owner,” says Summer Kath, executive vice president of design for Cambria. “Every detail, from the choice of materials to the selection of products, is carefully curated to evoke a sense of handcrafted luxury and functionality.”

But you don’t need to be on the Artisan Home Tour to have an Artisan-worthy kitchen. Here, interior designers offer seven tips for achieving a high-end aesthetic in your own home.

Prioritize timelessness over trends. As tempting as it may be to reimagine your kitchen every time you’re inspired by a picture on Pinterest or an influencer on TikTok, a timeless kitchen will always give you the most bang for your buck. Says Sustainable 9’s director of interior design Brittany Blunt, “The kitchen is a

KITCHENS // SUSTAINABLE 9 DESIGN + BUILD PHOTO SPACECRAFTING

is a space where you spend the most time, and remodeling can be a hassle.” Instead of chasing trends, focus on the colors, materials, and décor that stand the test of time: neutral tones, classic accessories like wooden cutting boards and copper pans, simple cabinetry designs, and traditional layouts, to name a few.

Invest in high-quality materials and appliances.

Splurge on the products and materials you interact with daily — think granite or quartz countertops, hardwood or marble flooring, custom cabinetry, and gourmet appliances from reputable brands known for their performance and innovation, such as professional-grade ranges; built-in, panel-ready refrigerator and freezer columns; and smart appliances with advanced features. “These materials not only elevate the aesthetic appeal but also ensure durability and longevity,” says Swanson.

Opt for customized cabinets.

Custom cabinetry elevates a kitchen’s sophistication with meticulous attention to detail — from the choice of paint color, wood type, and quality to the functionality of doors and drawers. “These bespoke elements contribute to a luxurious ambiance and ensure longevity,” says Kath.

Don’t compromise on

countertops. Every slab of natural stone is unique in its veining, crystallization, and markings, so take your time visiting slab yards and showrooms “to find the countertop that resonates with your vision for the space,” says Blunt.

“Just because you like what your neighbor has doesn’t mean it will look the same way when you order,” adds Joel Dehmer, vice president of sales for Granite-Tops. “Look at the material you are selecting in different lighting. Make sure you understand the product you are selecting and how it will impact your daily routine. You want the countertops to function how you live.”

Hone in on the hardware.

Small details, like eye-catching hardware, can take a kitchen from ordinary to artisan. Forgo standard cabinet pulls and knobs in favor of modern shapes and metals, or make a statement with a bold kitchen faucet. “View hardware as the home’s jewelry,” Blunt advises.

Illuminate the space

effectively. “Lighting plays a crucial role in creating ambiance and functionality in a high-end kitchen,” says Swanson, who suggests incorporating a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting. “Consider installing dimmer switches, pendant lights over the island, under-cabinet lighting, and statement

chandeliers to add visual interest and create a warm, inviting atmosphere.”

Make it personal. Even if you’re striving to create a timeless kitchen, that doesn’t mean you can’t infuse the space with your personality through thoughtfully placed color, pattern, texture, and décor. “From vibrant accent walls to eye-catching backsplashes and statement-making cabinetry, homeowners may embrace bolder choices to infuse personality and style into their kitchens,” says Swanson. Additionally, “open shelving allows homeowners to showcase their favorite dishes, cookware, and decorative items. This emphasizes visual interest and accessibility while promoting a sense of curated charm.”

ALL ABOUT THE EXTRAS

Key finishing touches to enhance your home’s design

In the world of interior design, it’s often the smallest details that make the biggest impact. Welcome to the realm of “extras” – those carefully curated elements that elevate a room from ordinary to extraordinary. From statement light fixtures that command attention to mirrors that amplify space and light, you can find all your artisan-level finishing touches at Galleria Edina.

LIGHT FIXTURES

Illuminate your space with style. Lighting is not just about functionality; it’s a key element in shaping the ambiance and mood of a space. Whether it’s a statement chandelier in the dining room, sleek pendant lights above the nightstands, or strategically placed sconces in the hallway, the right light fixture can enhance the overall design aesthetic and create a captivating visual impact.

ARTWORK

Walls are a blank canvas. Whether it’s artwork, photographs, tapestries, or decorative shelves, the right wall décor can add depth, texture, and visual interest to your space. Choose pieces that resonate with your personal style, creating a cohesive and harmonious environment. REJUVENATION

MIRRORS

One of the most versatile and effective tools in interior design, mirrors are capable of creating the illusion of space and amplifying natural light. Experiment with different styles, shapes, and placements to find the perfect fit for your space and design aesthetic.

GREENERY

Whether it’s a towering fiddle leaf fig or a spider plant set on a shelf, incorporating greenery will breathe life into your space.

If you’re opting for real over fake, be sure to choose plants that thrive in your space’s lighting and humidity conditions.

TEXTILES

From plush rugs underfoot to cozy throws draped over sofas, textiles add warmth and texture – and can help disperse your color palette around the room. Choose fabrics that not only look luxurious but also feel inviting to the touch.

MISSION

WE PARTNER TO BUILD SAFE HOUSING FOR MINNESOTANS IN NEED.

VISION

TO PROVIDE DIGNIFIED HOUSING IN THE PURSUIT OF ENDING HOMELESSNESS.

The Artisan Home Tour helps support the work of the Housing First Minnesota Foundation as it builds tangible housing solutions to end homelessness for veterans and other Minnesotans in need. For more than 25 years, the Foundation has been transforming housing and impacting lives. This year, our Foundation continues its great work by constructing new Housing for Heroes homes, many with an accessory dwelling unit, for Minnesota veterans experiencing homelessness. These homes will provide safe, stable housing for homeless veterans and veteran families in the Twin Cities.

By touring the incredible homes on this summer’s tour, you are helping raise funds for a worthy cause — dollars that have made a real difference in building housing and moving individuals and families from homelessness to hopefulness.

Q &A

City Homes, LLC

What do you wish more people knew about your company?

I wish more people knew about our commitment to sustainability. City Homes has taken substantial steps toward becoming an environmentally sustainable builder. We have signed partnership agreements with Energy Star and Zero Energy Ready Homes. We just finished a new construction home that was constructed as an all-electric, geothermal, solar-paneled home with a SPAN electrical panel, and it received a very impressive HERS rating of -21 on a scale of zero to 150.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

Strong leadership is essential to inspire, motivate, and guide a team. A team should work collaboratively, leveraging diverse skills and expertise, all with the goal of delivering highquality results. The team needs to be organized and proactive to manage resources and schedules and can be adaptable and flexible to face unexpected challenges and changes.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?

My favorite trend shaping new construction today is minimalism. I see clients wanting simplicity, functionality, and sustainability. We are being asked to design spaces that are more flexible and multifunctional for their adaption as the family ages. Homebuyers want to maximize their home’s usability without excess, and they are prioritizing quality over quantity. The row home is a great answer to this trend.

Custom One Homes

How did you get started in the building industry?

I’ve been in the industry for over 20 years. I got my start back when I was approached by a remodeling company to come and help with their operations. I worked with that company for a couple of years and fell in love with the industry. From that experience, I decided that I wanted to put a flag in the ground and create a career in the building industry. It’s been amazing since!

What inspires and influences your work?

Building a business that can be regarded as good as Disney or the Ritz Carlton when it comes to customer service. I’m inspired by multiple design styles. Custom One Homes is not locked into one specific style and that allows us to work with clients and various desires for their home. We do like cutting-edge style that can remain timeless in nature.

What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?

Being able to see a beautiful home come to fruition. We start with a blank piece of paper and build a story around your family to create your home. It takes many people to create a truly custom-built home. We enjoy that process and that’s where the compassion to understand the client’s story and the passion of the Custom One Homes team come into play!

Q &A

What sets your company apart?

We are a builder with an exceptional process that builds lasting friendships with every project.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

Having the right team in place on day one is critical. Not every architect or interior designer is the right fit for every project. Once that team is in place, we learn the critical details of how our clients live, what drives their lives, and what styles and trends they gravitate toward. The sketch-plan process is designed to make sure you are seeing your vision executed correctly. The interior designer will also do design boards for each room to ensure they are seeing the same vision as the client.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

Our core values are for our team to be organized, have a positive attitude, be trustworthy, be respectful, and be resourceful. These are qualities we expect from ourselves and those who work with us.

What are some of your favorite trends in new construction?

As a Designated Green Path Builder, we are encouraged by the desire to build better and better homes focused on sustainability and the homes surrounding the environment.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

A successful project team has aligned values. With shared values of thoughtful design, craftsmanship, and quality being prioritized over size and quantity, we find the most successful team results for the client. A rewarding project starts with a relationship of trust and respect with all team members.

What inspires and influences your work?

There is no lack of inspiration for our work, every team member at Kyle Hunt & Partners brings bright, new ideas to the table each day. What is most inspiring, is participating in the process with our

clients and the full team assembled around them as we work together to provide creative solutions catered specifically to their lifestyle and personalities.

What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?

We find so many stages of building custom homes gratifying from the initial on-site meetings to the development of architect's sketches into unique homes tailored to each client. Seeing the selections come together as the project progresses is so exciting. Most of all, the joy of the families living in their homes is the greatest reward. We take pride in providing services to our clients many years after their home is completed as we support them through life’s changes ensuring their homes adapt to their needs.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

We find this to be a natural process. At Kyle Hunt & Partners, we see ourselves as your guide throughout the project. It is a priority for us to know and understand our clients and the patterns of their lives; how they live, gather, and relax. Each project is unique, yet our mission remains consistent – to build a home that is a true reflection of our client’s lifestyle and values.

Q &A

Moderno Construction Management, LLC

How did you get started in the building industry?

As siblings, our entire team was raised with residential construction as a way of life. Instilled in us from a young age, our lives were shaped around great subcontractor and industry partnerships, strong mentorships, unparalleled craftsmanship, and a passion for serving others well. As the industry continued to change, the market called for a new vision and a new way of connecting with clients. Gone are the days of hands-off construction. Up-and-coming generations are savvy, smart, and want to be guided in the process while maintaining control at the wheel. Moderno’s approach to business emerged to fulfill this need. We merged value-driven integrity with trend-forward design and infused client autonomy throughout our projects. Generations of knowledge and expertise become our client’s experience. We confidently serve as a guide, resource, and educator through the construction management build process to ensure the home is value-engineered to client-preferred specifications and budget. There is no guesswork. We love what we do and we were born to do it. Here yesterday, here today, here to stay. It’s the Moderno way!

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

It’s simple, really. You won’t find ego here and we ask a lot of questions. Approachable, real, confident, and driven to serve — we turn the client volume way up and listen intently to their vision, thoughts, and the way they live.

Q &A

What sets your company apart?

Our building company distinguishes itself through extensive owner involvement throughout the entire process. Each of the three partners is actively engaged, overseeing multiple inspections on every job site. We prioritize hands-on management, ensuring a significant presence and close monitoring. Additionally, we set ourselves apart by employing our own team of skilled framing and trimming carpenters, contributing to the exceptional quality and finishes of our projects.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

Our team’s approach to a new project is characterized by continuous collaboration with the owner, spanning from the project’s inception to its completion. We initiate the process by meeting with the owner to thoroughly understand their needs and desires. Throughout the design phase, we work closely to ensure that the project aligns with their vision. Regular onsite meetings occur during construction, culminating in a pre-close walkthrough and project completion before the owner moves into their new home. Furthermore, our commitment extends into the post-construction phase, as we remain engaged with owners through the warranty period, providing comprehensive support and service.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

We listen. We take the time to learn about our clients’ desires and goals, their design styles, and budget demands. We work hard to make sure these things are aligned before we start building.

What are the most important elements of a successful build team?

Open, honest communication, and collaboration.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?

Connecting the built environment to nature by using natural materials like wood and stone. Expansive windows and patio doors are also a great way to connect to the outdoors.

Q &A

How did you get started in the building industry?

Our team has a passion for architecture. This led us to harness that passion for others to enjoy. We take pride in converting design and architectural ideas into reality to shape the landscape of the homes we build and enrich the lives of our homeowners.

What inspires and influences your work?

Inevitably, this has evolved over the years. I would describe it as a mix of present desires, past architecture, and projected trends that influence Pillar Homes’ work.

What makes you proud to be a builder?

Legacy. What we do today will transcend time and leave a part of Pillar Homes in the future. Our efforts will carry ahead for many years positively affecting families and communities.

Q &A

What inspires and influences your work?

Outside elements. Our goal is to create a harmonious living space by seamlessly blending timeless design elements with the beauty of nature. Designing this lake house that embraces a transitional style, while incorporating coastal influences, resulted in a home that stands the test of time and brings the outdoors in.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

Our objective is to carefully listen to our clients’ desires and needs, considering their individual lifestyles, and design preferences. By combining our creativity and expertise, we aim to create and bring to life the client’s dream home. We value transparency, teamwork, and maintaining a close relationship with our clients and building partners, throughout the entire design and construction journey.

What are some of your favorite trends and styles in new construction?

We have been enjoying incorporating warmer tones and vintage-inspired elements for more eclectic designs. The use of white oak, walnut, and black stained cabinetry has been very popular in both modern and traditional style homes, all of which can elevate a space. I have always loved incorporating natural materials and textures into my designs and have been loving the growing trend of using warm colors and textures. I believe, a well-designed space should encompass a range of colors, textures, and layers, while also reflecting the unique personality of the homeowner.

Stonewood, LLC

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

Each new project is marked by a combination of personalized attention and systematic precision. We begin by deeply understanding our client’s vision, needs, and lifestyle. This initial phase of listening and learning is crucial, as it sets the foundation for the entire project. Our team, consisting of skilled professionals with years of experience, then collaborates closely to create a detailed plan that aligns with the client’s aspirations and our high standards of quality. Throughout the project, we maintain open communication, ensuring that every detail is meticulously managed and executed. This approach allows us to not only meet but hopefully exceed our clients’ expectations, delivering a home that is both a masterpiece of design and a reflection of their personality.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

A deeply collaborative and tailored process. It starts with an in-depth conversation where we actively listen to our client’s desires, preferences, and lifestyle needs. This understanding becomes the blueprint of our design. Our team, combining their expertise in architecture, design, and craftsmanship, then works diligently to translate this vision into reality. We use state-of-the-art technology and materials, ensuring every aspect of the home reflects the client’s personality and the highest standards of quality. Regular updates and client involvement throughout the project ensure that the final product not only matches but often surpasses the original vision, resulting in a home that is as unique as its owner.

What sets your company apart?

Our meticulous focus on the process and the unparalleled expertise of our team. Our history in the industry, spanning generations, has allowed us to refine a building process that is both detailoriented and customer-focused. Each member of our team brings a depth of experience and a commitment to excellence, ensuring that every project is not just a construction but a carefully crafted home.

Q &A

Style & Structure

What inspires and influences your work?

Our homeowners influence our work. We take the time to learn about what our homeowners like, how they live, and what their style is to design a home as unique as they are. Every project is personal to us, and we want the homeowner to be excited and have the space immediately feel like home.

What do you enjoy most about building custom homes?

Building custom homes is a passion for our team and we feel blessed we get to do what we love. Every day and every project is different which makes the job fun. On each home, we get to see our creativity, design innovation, and quality craftsmanship come to life. Every home presents unique challenges that allow our team to problem-

solve and customize the home. It is very rewarding to work with our amazing homeowners as well as trade partners to build the personal connections that we have. We truly believe that this is one of the best industries to work in because we get to see dreams turn into reality.

How would you describe your team’s approach to a new project?

When it comes to building a new custom home, our team’s approach is centered around collaboration, creativity, and a commitment to turning your vision into reality. We understand that a home is more than just a structure; it’s a reflection of your unique lifestyle and personality. How we accomplish this is through a very organized and detailed process from our collaborative design process throughout the entire build. Staying organized

with a high level of communication is important to ensuring a successful build.

What sets your company apart?

We love to design custom homes that don’t feel like any home you have ever been in. We can build/remodel to any style, and we have an amazing design team to help get you the look you have always dreamed of. At Style & Structure, we value attention to detail to ensure that your home has the highest standard of fit and finish.

Sustainable 9 Design + Build

What sets your company apart?

We are a small family-owned company backed by an extremely talented team of individuals who put a great deal of value in the relationships and bonds we create with our clients and our subcontractors. Since our inception, our sole commitment has been to create sustainably built, high-performance, healthy homes that are architecturally design-forward. While the design aesthetic of a home is obviously very important, so are the products we use in every home. While not all our clients have energy efficiency or indoor air quality at the top of their wish list, at a minimum, we educate them on how minor changes can make their home more sustainable and longer lasting.

How do you bring a client’s vision to life?

Sustainable 9 is a true design-build firm in every sense. Our simple one-stop approach to each project integrates a single design team working together from start to finish in an open and purposeful collaboration. Having just one entity to work with streamlines the process and paves the way for a more creative design and an amazing result. It also results in cost reduction, a streamlined schedule, and other efficiencies.

We appreciate the shift toward crafting practical spaces with optimal functionality.

Well-designed and functional outdoor spaces have increasingly become a priority with our clients as well. We’re seeing more requests for upscale outdoor entertainment areas, built with custom grilling and dining spaces — and, of course, swimming pools!

Function and style meet in this contemporary midcentury escape, thoughtfully remodeled to create a space perfect for daily living and entertaining alike.

• With a constricting kitchen causing a disjointed tra c flow and a layout failing to harness natural light and optimize the breathtaking views of Lake Johanna, the owners of this 1997 home were ready for a change. As grandparents, they envisioned a home that could easily adapt to their evolving family and provide an enjoyable environment for gathering.

• Design elements were carefully chosen to create a space both visually striking and thoughtfully functional. In the kitchen, custom walnut cabinetry provides premium organization with a contemporary aesthetic while hidden storage within the range hood reinforces the kitchen’s functionality as it maintains a clean, uncluttered appearance. A focal point is the Cambria backsplash that adds a touch of sophistication while lending itself to the space’s harmonious blend of warmth and contemporary appeal.

• Incorporating an open floor plan, large Marvin windows now can flood the interior with natural light, frame the picturesque views of the lake, and connect seamlessly to the indoor and outdoor spaces.

• The expansive windows were instrumental in completely transforming the atmosphere of the home — enhancing daily living experiences and creating an inviting space for entertaining both family and guests.

• Practicality blends with elegance in the spacious laundry and mudroom which offers ample storage. The integration of custom wall plug-ins for electronics reflects the commitment to both functionality and aesthetics, ensuring an optimal living experience.

• Dark siding on the exterior now provides a striking first impression, establishing a bold, modern aesthetic and setting the tone for the unique features inside.

College City Design/Build, Inc.

7423 Shannon Drive, Edina, MN

In a seamless collaboration between College City Design Build and KASA Interior Design, this 1978 European-style home was transformed into an organic, modern-day chalet complete with relaxing vibes and a strong connection to nature.

• The homeowner of this project is also the interior designer, resulting in an Artisan remodel that is the epitome of personalized luxe living.

• Although this home’s layout worked well for its owners, almost every material was outdated, including the failing existing windows and rotten joists in the sunroom. The renovation — which encompassed gutting the entire main level down to the studs and replacing all the windows — provided the perfect opportunity to solve these problems while giving the owners a chance to reimagine the entire space.

• The exterior received a faceli with the addition of cedar wall slats and smooth James Hardie panels, which provide warmth and a modern edge, while a darker color scheme accents the home’s original architecture and helps ground it to the lot.

• Inside, a curved two-story foyer welcomes guests with locally blown glass sconces and the staircase’s hand-forged, cascading iron railing. Expansive window views bring the outdoors in, enhancing the home’s connection to nature.

• The home boasts a spacious kitchen with a walk-in pantry and breakfast nook, adjacent dining room, sunken great room with stunning corner windows, two o ce spaces, a powder bath, laundry room, mudroom, and three-season sunroom affectionately referred to as “The Cabana.”

• All materials and finishes are new within the main level, with the exception of the front den’s beautifully preserved stained oak wainscoting, and were designed to create an organic modern dwelling. White oak floors pair well with rustic oak cabinets, while quartzite countertops in the kitchen and powder bath lend themselves to the theme of natural elements. Handmade concrete slabs adorn the great room fireplace, with pieces of aggregate peeking out to add texture.

• While most finishes are earthy and subtle, the design palette also includes fun pops of color within light fixtures, tile, textures, and art that bring life to the space.

6 – 3rd Street, Excelsior, MN

This charming Excelsior home situated on the shores of Lake Minnetonka received a renovation worthy of its status as a Heritage Preservation Site.

• This lovely historic home has been designated a Heritage Preservation Site by the city of Excelsior’s Heritage Preservation Commission, which meant the homeowners and architecture team needed to work with the commission to get all exterior renovations approved.

• A crumbling limestone foundation required the house to be temporarily suspended while it was replaced. Now, the exterior is crowned with a cedar shake roof and copper detailing and gutters, while a spacious wraparound balcony and back deck — outfitted with a cozy fireplace and several seating areas — provide plenty of room for outdoor entertaining.

• A series of multiple remodels by different homeowners had created structural constraints that the experienced structural team overcame with creative and e cient design modifications.

• Inside, a two-story curved staircase takes center stage, while wood panel details and luxurious lighting are installed throughout.

• The expansive owners’ suite includes its own fireplace, sitting room, and turret room showcasing the home’s original stained-glass windows.

• A subtle nautical theme of muted blues and grays is woven throughout the interiors, designed to accentuate the sweeping views of Lake Minnetonka seen through the home’s expansive windows.

1006 Wildhurst Trail, Orono, MN

Nestled alongside Forest Lake, this charming home has been artfully transformed by Revision, seamlessly blending its incredibly open space with a touch of coastal elegance.

• This whole-home renovation features light and airy design elements celebrating the artisan cra smanship and gorgeous finishes. So hues of blues and sandy neutrals are found throughout, while natural materials such as white oak finishes provide a touch of charm.

• Large windows invite in natural light to emphasize the openness. Accents like seashell motifs, nautical ropes, and dri wood art add whimsical nods to the seaside setting. This remodel stands as a testament to Revision’s commitment to creating spaces that not only reflect the clients’ vision but also bring the tranquility and beauty of the coast into their lakeside home.

• Experience the perfect blend of entertainment and serenity in the lower-level living space, where a golf simulator and a cozy fireplace offer a harmonious retreat. Outside, the poolside amenities offer a luxurious getaway, perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
