Made in the shade

Construction process of a new build keeps the existing land in mind during the whole process

A pair of pendant lights dangles over this kitchen island. At the far end of the space, a prep sink was carved out of the countertop to make the cooking process easier.

A singular paint color, La Paloma Gray by Benjamin Moore, helps create a visual flow to this first floor’s open floor plan.

A raised patterned backsplash adds a surprise of color to the surrounding white cabinetry in this kitchen.

This master bath is an almost identical reproduction of one the couple had renovated in their previous home.

This kitchen’s island was treated to a double thick edge of its Cambria Torquay quartz countertop to create a substantial feel to the surface.

The warmth of the kitchen table’s salvaged wood adds a rustic element to this home’s soft contemporary furnishings.

Operable, architecturally accurate shutters frame 11 of the front elevation’s windows. “It’s important to nail details like this,” says the builder. “Something about it just looks right when you do.”

A wide front foyer guides guests past the music room on their left and Jason’s office (not seen) on the right. The office has a full bath en suite and can be converted to a bedroom should Jason’s parents decide to move in with the family.
