A Sorento Story - The Ivy
When taking on a new project our inspiration can come from anywhere. Yes, even a blueberry. With a few key words in mind; height, light and airy we set out to find the perfect mix of features to build our fifth consecutive home for the Red Deer Regional Health Foundations lottery home.
Our spin on Modern Craftsman.
Setting the “mood” is an important first step when designing our homes. Finding images, textiles and objects to convey the overall concept of the project is what directs all of our design decisions. A collection of these items, when done well, can achieve the overall “feeling” that we want our homes to capture. These items and images can be pulled from nature to fashion and everything in between. Nothing is off limits if you feel it will add to the translation from concept to completion.
With a layout geared towards “empty nesters” and the mood set we came up with our spin on a Modern Craftsman home and we called her The Ivy. This is a light and airy version flooded with natural sun rays and some masculine features like dark beams and overstated lantern lights on the main floor to anchor the overall design.
Our kitchen backsplash feature had the perfect mix of blues, greys and whites that mimicked some pottery we found. The lantern lights were the perfect traditional accent that complimented the dark beams sprawled throughout the main living area and kitchen. We were able to pull those blues throughout in our soft finishes, such as, pillows, linens and throw blankets to have everything cohesive from the mainfloor to the lower level.
This house could be yours! The Red Deer Regional Health Foundation has it up for grabs to raise money to assist our local hospital. Find all the details you need on The Ivy, like where to purchase tickets, where to find the home, brochure and design guide!
