Home Envy: Neutral New Construction
Oakley Home Builders was the mastermind behind this stunning new construction in Illinois. The company prides itself in taking a new approach to home construction and remodeling by staying on-time and on budget (sounds impossible, right?). They somehow make this happen, and the end result is absolutely stunning in every case. The interiors of this Hinsdale home are so calming, featuring so many shades of neutrals that work together in such inviting ways.
I typically don’t like wood grain cabinetry in kitchens, but the light wash on the kitchen island in this case is so perfect. It anchors the island without drawing attention and it doesn’t clash with the wood grain of the floors. The matching counter tops pull the whole image together. I absolutely love the pendant lighting above the island, too.
Something else I love about the home is the varying designs in the bathrooms. Every bathroom looks like it could have come from a different home, or a different designer, but the whole image makes the home extraordinary. The marble vanity in the powder room is so striking and classy paired with the gold mirror, then the light blue in one of the full bathrooms is playful without straying too far from the home’s overall aesthetic. The tile design on the master bathroom floor might just be my favorite detail, though.
This house rocks some of the coolest light fixtures I’ve ever seen, from the dining room to the master and the breakfast room, too. Overall an incredibly well-designed property that I would absolutely die for!
