What do you get when you combine thoughtful, tailored design elements with warm and cozy textures? A beautiful, laid-back home perfect and practical for a busy family! We had a unique opportunity to go back into this custom home that closed nearly a year ago to shoot photos. Prior to launching eDesign, this was one of the first homes we helped clients with furniture and decor selections. After backorders and COVID delays, everything had finally arrived and we knew we needed to share it.

We love creating blank canvases that can evolve over time with a family and for each holiday and season. To warm up a space we purposefully play up texture, patterns and pops of color. Try mixing different fabrics and materials with pillows, blankets, woven baskets, stoneware, ceramics and metallic details. This gives a lived-in feel to new construction. When in doubt add in plants—whether faux or real, they bring in color and life.

Florals in vase: Bronze Upright Amaranthus


These stunning brass and linen pendants lean formal and tradition, while the cane-back barstools and white oak island add just enough warmth and casualness to strike the perfect balance. Add in a backsplash of imperfect, handmade tiles and polished nickel plumbing fixtures, and this kitchen is complete.


We love a good wallpaper moment. We can’t say it enough, if wallpaper makes you nervous, try it in a small space first like this powder bath. This earthy, olive green option was the perfect way to compliment the rest of the main floor’s neutral color palette while also making it feel like a completely new space.


This home is a custom, 2-story house plan, based on our stock Chateau plan. One of the main customizations of this floor plan was the entryway stair layout and the 2-story ceilings. Through the double, front doors, you're welcomed by this cozy vignette of white oak, pattern carpet, pops of brass and textured terracotta.
