Custom New Build Design

I was originally hired by my client to help him select all the interior finishes and products for his new home build project. Once we started working together, he immediately brought me in to assist in all aspects of this new build design construction project.

This house was purchased as a single-story bungalow and was torn down to build a new two-story dream home for my client.  They actually kept and built onto the existing foundation. This new home is equipped with an open concept main floor, master bedroom suite, 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, laundry on the second floor & in the finished basement, as well as a dumb-waiter.

Design Details

The main floor is an open concept with a kitchen, bar, dining, foyer, powder, and living room with a two-story cathedral ceiling. The large floor to ceiling windows is a gorgeous feature that brings in so much natural light it’s fantastic. In addition to this open concept main floor design, there is a large open riser staircase with glass railings that takes you up to the mezzanine overlooking the living room. It is quite the space, and the view from the mezzanine to the exterior is stunning.

The home wouldn’t be complete without a Control 4 home automation system that controls the lighting, music, and window treatments. YES! That is right, the living room blinds and kitchen draperies are all automated and can be operated with a switch!

Lighting & Furniture

The decorative pendants and chandelier offer rich black and brass finishes. The chandelier features an oversized X pattern detail to provide a substantial, yet simple, a statement piece for this gorgeous custom walnut casted dining table set. When we saw this dining table, my client had to purchase it!

Happy Client

“I am beyond happy that I hired Dawn to help me with designing my new home. I only wish I had found her when I started this project. She was on top of everything! Kept everyone organized and up to date on any changes or updates throughout the project. I knew that if there was an issue, I could call her and she would be able to give me the guidance I needed to hear – she is amazing to work with, patient and I can trust that she has my best interest at heart. I have found my designer and can’t wait to work with Dawn on the next home I build.”
