Trend towards smaller home sizes continues.
As the trend towards smaller home sizes continues some of the home plans that I designed towards the beginning of my career are relevant again. I have always tried to create timeless design and I think that quality in my home plans can be seen in this early collection named New Beginnings. These plans are still for sale as stock plans. Look for more of the New Beginnings collection later this week. Please call if you are interested 801-292-1512.
Bring your vacation home with you!
Some of your best memories are made while on vacation. Remembering and reflecting on those relaxed moments with your senses awakened to the new surroundings can lighten your mood. I often bring back art work from my travels and favorite places. I love having these nostalgic pieces in my daily life.
Details, details, details…
This is such an amazing landscape that I wanted to point out some of the interesting and uncommon details. Notice the use of the spheres in the stairway design and in the finial balls under the pot shelves. Spheres are not commonly used in exterior architecture, so they awaken and attract the eye yet the geometry is pleasing. The square verses circular pots have been chosen and placed carefully, which is exemplified well with the square pots both in front of the porte cochere and in the front entry cut-out. The small details such as the mow strip in the driveway and the pebble borders around the patios give the feel that everything has been meticulously considered and executed.
Never underestimate the impact of landscaping!
The landscaping is in at DuMc; the triplex in Bountiful. The home officially looks complete and ready to have someone move-in. This landscape provides a diversity of different areas for enjoying the outdoors. There are several sitting areas that vary from outdoor eating to lying in the sun. This landscape also offers several fruit trees and a raised bed vegetable garden. I love the nostalgia of the clothes-line! It’s all in the details…
This kitchen underwent huge a transformation! Without gaining any square footage this remodel was able to open up the space significantly. When comparing the existing floor plan to the new floor plan it is amazing to see how space can be used so much more effectively. If you are the type of person who wants to maximize the space and potential of your house call us for discovery meeting.
I love this new kitchen! These clients came to me with an out-of-date kitchen and open minds. These before and after pictures really show the transformation that took place. The original kitchen was closed off, but by changing the layout the space became inviting and allows for traffic to flow through easily. This kitchen and dining room are in an older house with limited space so it was imperative to use every inch wisely. The lighting, paint colors and modern materials used created a really light and fresh space.
At the Street of Dreams it was fun to see old ideas being brought new again. In the kitchens there was no extreme use of color that would date the house. I think the trend over the next couple years will be a return to stained cabinets.
The formal dining room was very popular on this home tour as almost every home had one in addition to an informal dining space.
It was fun to see classic trends continuing on in the bathrooms and powder baths.
The Street of Dreams is one of the best parade homes around and this year was no exception. I love how they gather the homes all on one street. It truly creates a neighborhood where all the homes are the same standard and age. I loved the timeless design of these homes. The spaces were not volumetrically big, instead they were very liveable. Here are a few of the great rooms from the tour.
The landscape details had great continuation building in height progression from the edge details, sidewalk, border of rocks, lawn, and shrubs.
