When it comes to style, these homeowners are self-described risk-takers. Along with their team of designers and builders, the homeowners went on a 15-month journey to achieve their dream home. Although you may not associate craftsmanship with such clean lines, it took many years to develop the expertise that was necessary to conceptualize and execute a design this precise . ‘I’ve never seen anything like this before,’ is a common phrase heard when people walk through this unique and special home.

Foyer

In the foyer of this home, you can catch a glimpse of natural cedar ceilings, as well as a staircase designed and fabricated by P2 Industries. As you’re about to see, the rich orange and purple hues in this rug tie are tied together throughout the rest of the interior design.

“This room sets the tone and color palette of the home. Many of the materials, selections and forms are natural, organic and neutral in color. The homeowners like color so we accented primarily with purple, orange and navy blue. These colors give the rooms so much energy and fun personality, just like the homeowners.”- Monica Hart

Great Room

The living room furniture is comprised of custom pieces from Room & Board. The homeowners also commissioned a painting from Jessica Wachter, who won Best Artist in the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Design & Living Magazine People’s Choice Awards. Above the fireplace, the mantle was designed by Finnu in collaboration with the homeowners. When it came to designing the focal wall in the great room, Hart said, “We wanted to make sure that each piece stood on its own, but that they didn’t overpower each other.”

Kitchen

Audrey Newman of JW Kitchens designed the kitchen with lots of input from the homeowners. They spent several months planning appliance selections, finishes and organizational features. The cabinetry throughout the home is Wood Mode Custom Cabinetry from JW Kitchens. This kitchen is equipped with Thermador Column refrigeration, a Thermador gas range top with grill, steam oven, two sinks and dual dishwashers also from JW Kitchens. In addition to the unique cabinetry, Newman designed the range hood and freezer panel that were fabricated by P2 Industries.

Dining Room

The dining room features an organic light fixture and plenty of natural light. A glass wall from Panoramic Doors allows the homeowners to combine the dining room and three season room into one big, open space. The glass doors simply fold away when the homeowners want to enjoy some fresh air. The walls and ceiling in the three-season room are a white-washed pine.

Man Cave

Upstairs, the man cave was designed by the homeowner with help from Hart and Newman. An avid pool player, he had a pool table custom-built to convert into a dining table by adding walnut tabletop panels and adjusting the height. The benches also double as hidden pool cue storage. The man cave has bonus outdoor deck space featuring glass railings by P2 Industries. The half bath features a unique mirror, stone vessel sink and a urinal.
