Clearly modern kitchen

Written by: Julie Thompson

Jessica Proud and her husband traded in a lot more than close city living when they moved from their 100-year-old home in Dayton to a custom-built masterpiece in the outskirts of Bellbrook. They also completely transformed their style—saying goodbye to a cozy 1913 home adorned with dark wood and stained glass windows to one that is bright, clean and perhaps a little more open than usual. The couple designed their new 5,000-square-foot home two years ago with Jessica in charge of its complete design. “We wanted our new home to be more eco-modern,” she says. “We wanted to use natural materials and for it to be as sustainable as possible. It’s very open and the décor just screams contemporary.”
