This home was designed for a family who enjoys the outdoors and often fosters elderly dogs. As a result, many design considerations throughout the home were chosen to accommodate the aging process for both humans and canines. The main feature of this home is the open space design that connects the kitchen easily to the dining, living room, and outdoor patio, keeping the family and dogs connected. Outdoor eating is an easy decision, with the dining table acting as command central.

The owner intended to have white marble in the kitchen, but when she discovered Fantasy Brown, she couldn’t resist. The color palette for everything else was chosen to compliment the marble. It wasn’t until the owner selected the crystal pendant lights above the kitchen island that she realized she likes a little shine. With the understated colors of the kitchen, it adds just the right finishing touch.

The windows in the home go all the way to the floor because the owner wanted the dust bunnies that roll rampant with dogs to be easy to clean. The floors were also chosen specifically for dogs. They are scratch-resistant, hardy, and beautiful.
