This custom home is a study in contrasts. Elements such as an eye-catching red scallop tile is put in an unlikely pairing with classic marble tiles, while other rooms feature primary tones paired with classic accessories. Somehow, it all works together to create space after space in which you will want to let your eye linger just a bit longer.
This vision came together with designer Allison Burke at Allison Burke Interior Design. “By the time the clients came to me, they already had the layout picked out but no finishes, so I worked with them to choose all the finishes and interiors,” she said.
Burke helped the couple source the chair fabric on the yellow chairs found in the living room. “We wanted to bring out a bit of color from the rug without matching too much,” she said. The geometric pattern was chosen to help contrast the rugs texture.
In this case, the clients had a specific vision and knew what they liked and what they did not. “They wanted the house to be colorful, so for me, it was a balance to find what would make them happy and what I thought would look good,” she said. As a team, Burke and the homeowners went through a collaborative process to choose finishes. The result is a stunning home filled with eclectic and contemporary styles.
The homeowner gilded the bathroom mirror on her own, and Burke worked with the couple to find wallpaper that would play off the fixture well. “Powder rooms like this one are a fun place to do something different,” Burke said. This print was found from Makelike, and contrasts nicely with the Jason Miller Modo Scone light fixture.
The homeowners found the rug in teh master bedroom while traveling, and Burke helped them select a blue tone that was pulled from the rug to paint the room. The custom headboard also features items found on the couple’s travels, with two panels integrated into the fabric headboard.
The couple knew they wanted to have red incorporated into their master bathroom and were sold on this scalloped tile pattern once they saw it. The fish scale wall is a definite focal point in the wet room where both the shower and the tub reside.
This is a soaking tub, and to avoid an unmanageable step down into it, the tub was recessed into the ground. Everything was designed to be slip-resistant.
