The furnishings were curated to complement each other and create a unique vibe for each space. The highlight of the main level is the sunny porch. Itâ€™s an ideal space for lounging with a good book or relaxing with family.
INSPIRING TRANSITIONAL This custom built Edina home was designed to be timeless at its core, with the ability to incorporate color and personality through pieces that could be switched out. The open dining and living area feature ample seating and a view of the backyard pool, while windows and built-ins along the fireplace wall create a strong architectural statement. The neutral all-white kitchen is kept fresh with arabesque-shaped tile and lighting that sparkles.
SIMPLE LAKESIDE This home came with great bonesâ€”a structure and layout that made the most of natural light and gorgeous lakeside views. We took advantage of the classic lines and created a simple, graceful style that matched the personalities of the homeowners.Â The original architect built this home to be timeless, so the aim of the design plan was simply to complement and gracefully enhance the structure and layout.
TRADITIONAL ECLECTIC The overall effect of the home is dramatic yet playful, with eclectic features catching your eye from every direction. Using the existing footprint of this home, almost every space was aesthetically impacted with new decor and design features, creating a traditional-eclectic vibe. The living room walls are paneled with distinctive moulding, and sheer drapery accents the Chesterfield sofa and Missoni pillows The master bedroom features a brilliant trio of chandeliers hung from the white wood vaulted ceiling and a dramatic navy blue ultra-suede wall covering. Offering even more intrigue, the TV above the fireplace is hidden behind a two-way mirror. 26
FAMILY TRADITIONAL We utilized much of the clientâ€™s previous furniture throughout the home, while adding new pieces that continue the neutral color palette. Pattern and texture were brought in through fabrics such as leather, linens, and shaneels. Bright pops of color are featured throughout the home, particularly in the family room with the striking deep blue painted walls. Open and flowing, the kitchen and great room can comfortably seat twenty-five people for entertaining, and the built-in booth adds an extra touch of whimsy.
UPDATED CLASSIC Traditional elements with unexpected twists. The pewterÂ countertops on the raised island top adds a more industrial feel but the fluted edging keeps it traditional. Subtle, casual elements like theÂ stained bamboo bar stools and exposed bulb pendants keep the kitchen from being too formal.
NATURAL RETREAT Inspired by the soothing colors of nature, this calming blend of earthy greens, taupes and pale blues is a perfect complement to the breathtaking outdoor views.
CONTEMPORARY FLAIR A starburst mirror on the wall is a blast from the past. The accent overlooks a party-sized table created from a single slice of a walnut tree.
FUNCTIONAL YET, OH SO FUN Beautiful, yet practical, the interior design holds up to heavy use among four active boys. Colorful accents, including rugs, artwork and pillows jazz up the space while providing focal points.
BATHED IN SERENITY Serene and calming hues in the color of flowing water are found throughout this Master Bedroom. The soft azure green colors are reminiscent of cool waters. The eye is drawn to the matchstick marble accent tile that runs the length of this tranquil Master Bath into the large walk-in shower.
Warm walls complement this roomâ€™s masculine hues of chartreuse, chocolate and turquoise. Touches of metal in the drapery hardware and lamps play against the warmth of the walnut wood. The effect is rich and tranquil; a perfect space to work or take in the lovely scenery.
WARM CONTEMPORARY Clean and modern lines merge effortlessly with welcoming color palettes and textures to create the best of both worlds.
INSPIRED LUXURY Classic architectural details and timeless furnishings create a beautiful family space in this Wayzata Living Room.
ENCHANTED ESCAPE The stained bed frame contrasts with the painted desk and beside table. The effect is serene and stunning. A striking custom Directoire Cabinet was created to house books, a television and decorative items in this calming Wayzata Master Bedroom.
TWO SPACES MODERN & MASCULINE The natural and tactile materials used create a modern and masculine design that cohesively brings the two spaces together. A monotone color palette of strong earth tones and textured fabrics accentuates the artwork.
Stone hood, rift-cut white oak cabinetry, stainless steel wrapped island and exotic African wood floors reflect the use of modern design and natural elements, which work well together.
DEFINED BY ART This contemporary designed brownstone located in downtown Minneapolis reflects an urban lifestyle and features classic design elements. The masculine space is defined by the muted neutral colors which showcase the clientâ€™s art collection and unique characteristics such as the handmade glass chandelier.
COMFORT WITH TEXTURES This lower level family room provides a comfortable atmosphere that showcases the wide variety of textures.
INDULGE AND PAMPER Who wouldnâ€™t want to pamper themselves in this spa-like space?
REFINED AMBIENCE This loft contains many distinct classical architectural details that contrast against the deep rift cut white oak wood flooring.
VIVID COLOR This kitchen was transformed into a bright, bold focal point of the home by combining inspiration from European design and the clientâ€™s interest in contemporary design.
PERSONAL SPACE Relaxing in style never looked so good. Come in and enjoy some down time in your personal space.
ARTS & CRAFTS No details were overlooked in this guest bath... each piece of stained glass was discerningly hand-picked to create a Tree of Life motif. Rich woodÂ millwork and cabinetry play off the Honey Onyx tile.
