2015 "Craythorne Homes" Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes

In February of 2015 I was approached by Craythorne Homes to design and decorate their Parade of Homes entry. 

I loved the character of the exterior immediately and started there. 

The exterior features Rock, Hardie Board and Brick.  We decided to use Sherwin Williams "Gauntlet Gray" for the color of the Hardie Board.  Next, we selected  a traditional brick called the "Charleston", that had red, grey and a few white bricks added to the mix.  We then, chose a natural rock to bring in a little more texture to the front porch area. The color of rock is called "Savannah", and is a show stopper on the columns on the front of the house. I wanted everything trimmed out in white for a great contrast. We also picked a craftsman style front door stained in dark walnut to welcome you, as you enter the home.

 I loved how everything came together and was especially excited when Craythorne Homes won "Best Curb Appeal" from the Northern Wasatch Parade of Homes for this beauty.

Here are a few picture of the great entertaining space the back patio of the home offers....

Right as you enter the home, you're greeted by a gorgeous chandelier in the entry way, inspired by one of my favorite shows "Fixer Upper". 

I wanted the theme of this craftsman style home to lend itself towards a traditional, farmhouse feel. We accomplished this in the entryway, and most of the main floor, by using a wood looking ceramic tile. This tile has a great blend of medium and dark shading making it look like real wood. To finish off the entryway decor, I added a West Creek Design DIY console table flanked on each side by tall topiaries, a ammo box tray (another West Creek Design creation), weathered urns from Pottery Barn filled with magnolia leaves, a gold sphere and a beautiful blue and cream rug. 

However, right off the bat, the real eye catching feature of the entry way is the grid pattern trim work that stretches all the way across the hall into the stair well.  To make the trim work pop, we kept the stair case wood work in a dark walnut color. We also left the baluster and railing a simple square shape keeping with the craftsman farmhouse feel. A large and lovely lantern light fixture feels like a cherry on top, complimenting the space. Not to mention the great windows this home offers.

Come back  for tomorrow's blog post highlighting the amazing Great Room/ Kitchen of this custom Craythorne Home.
