The Exterior & Entryway

We started from the ground up on this project with a rambler-style build complete with dark dormer windows, bronze windows, a metal roof, and wooden columns and window awnings. We were lucky to collaborate with Gather Projects on the build of this project.

In the entryway space, you’re greeted by a dutch door, a console table moment, and door-casing lined paneling that draws the eye up to wooden beams and a lantern light across the ceilings.

In little spots throughout the house, we have these landscapes that incorporate the Arizona surroundings. I love that you know where you are and that it makes the home feel more personal.

Try this at home: When styling a console table, consider playing with balance by incorporating a large focal point like a mirror or artwork and layering smaller details to complete the look. For more on styling console tables, click here to read our step-by-step guide.

The Great Room

Because this is a family home and our clients have young kids, we decided to design this main great room to be a more formal seating space and delegate the TV-watching space to a separate area.

Complete with comfortable yet sophisticated seating, personal touches, and contrasting textures, this space is perfect for lounging and conversation.

"Our clients are both doctors, and these little spindle chairs at the front of the room from their alma mater are my favorite detail in this space. I love the richness and personality they add to the room."

"Curved edges on furniture are very big right now, and I love that they look so good from every angle when you walk into the space."

Designer tip: When designing your furniture layout in an open-concept space, consider what the back of your seating looks like from each angle. We love finding pieces with curved or detailed backs or incorporating a console table behind more traditional sofas.

Formal Dining Room

After starting with white paint and paneling, we decided to bring in some drama and make the room dark and moody. To contrast the square nature of the wall treatments, we chose a large round table and added in woven chairs with great custom tufted cushions.

Our client had this beautiful collection of dishes that we were able to integrate into the molding as a plate rack. It works as a great display and adds so much to this space.

Pro tip: When deciding on a paint color, don’t be afraid to experiment! Once you narrow down your swatches, test your hues on the walls and observe how the light hits the walls at different times of the day to make sure you see your shade in every light.
