For this Brentwood new construction home, we worked alongside our clients’ builder to make selections throughout the house, as well as selections for the exterior, before contruction began. In the kitchen and bathrooms, we selected tile, countertops, plumbing fixtures, and finishes to make each room unique. Light fixtures, paint colors, and trim accents were designated throughout as well. Each one of these touches personalized the clients’ home to fit their modern style.

Special details in each room were designed before the construction started, so that they would not be left out upon the completion of the home.
Applied molding on the walls accents the room and adds interest alongside the clean lines of the dining table and chairs.
Light fixtures, like this one in the foyer, make unique statements in each room.
Bathroom selections were chosen early on to allow for custom pieces, like this floating vanity in the powder bathroom. The vanity was created to be a statement piece, and we worked alongside the builder and countertop fabricator to dream up the final design. The subtle watercolor wallpaper softens the boxy vanity and modern fixtures.
Tile selections and unique cabinetry colors make a big impact on the overall look of the bathrooms. Specialty faucets, lighting, and hardware make the bathrooms in this home stand out!
Kitchen selections were kept basic with black and white cabinetry, to emphasize the brass accents in lighting and hardware.
Off the kitchen, a custom bench built-in creates a breakfast nook overlooking the back yard. Our upholsterer created a unique bench cushion and some accent pillows with some fun patterned fabrics that we selected to go along with the dusty pink chairs.
The wet bar that connects the kitchen and dining room features a custom cabinet color and unique hardware. The small space is packed with interest – perfect for a space geared toward entertaining.
Other custom details, like the design of this mantel and shelving, accentuate the living room. We worked with the client to create this design based on a mantel that she was inspired by!
Once the building was complete, we selected furnishing for each room and added accessories to finish out the home. In the living room, custom pillows accent the furniture and add pattern and color to the space.
The furnishings and accessories in the solarium were selected in muted tones to match the brightness of the space and contrast with the bolder colors in the living room.
We selected a fireplace stone in the initial stages of the project to match with this lightness as well.
A nook in one of the hallways was filled out by some bold art and a unique chair. Small vignettes like this thread the style of the house together, room by room.
The master bedroom furniture and textiles were chosen to have a neutral base and allow for pops of color to make a statement. A vintage rug adds pattern and color to the neutral bedding, with the green stools accenting the green in the rug. Custom draperies soften the space.
Using a designer for new construction projects can really transform the overall outcome. Having someone who is involved from the construction stage all the way to accessories and linens can help pull together a cohesive home that is unique to your style. Tying the finishes and furnishings completes the look, making the most of a well-thought out space.
