‘Warm and Inv The kitchen, master bath and pool bath are definitely stars in this home in northeast Oklahoma City. Paige Sheller of A-Line Designs, an interior design firm in Edmond, remembers the project well. “Our clients’ goal was to build their dream home as a perfect place for entertaining family and friends,” she says. “They asked us to help with the millwork [and to] finish selections, lighting and area furnishings.” The soft beige, stucco and stone exterior, with cedar and iron accents, is a clue to the home’s interior. With 8,600 square feet and three levels to work with, the design firm made magnificent contributions.



The home features a large basement, the main floor and the upper level. A double patio, the width of the home, provides a view of a secluded wood, adding to the property’s charm. The living area’s mammoth fireplace, made of Eldorado stacked stone, extends to the open kitchen. It adds a rustic touch to the clean lines of the interior, which mixes traditional and contemporary design elements. The color palette blends soft whites and grays. The all-in-one space – with a continuous, vaulted ceiling – is spectacular. Four floor-to-ceiling stone columns serve as space dividers in the kitchen. “Like the rest of the home, the kitchen is warm,

welcoming and inviting,” Sheller says. “We chose casual finishes throughout the home, so it is not too formal.” The pantry is a cook’s dream – a galley measuring 12 feet deep by 8 feet wide and adjacent to the kitchen, with custom floor-to-ceiling cabinets. A mud room was essential for a home of this size. Sheller calls it “the drop zone.” Equally as important, it’s home for the family dog, pampered with custom food bowls. Sheller calls the master bath “absolutely stunning. It has a free-standing tub, recessed into its own private alcove, with a beautiful tile surround.”
