2023 UDAD 🏆 Awards

Gold Winner – Chalk Ridge by Emily Roose Interiors

At 4,756 square feet nestled high up in the hills of Northwest Reno overlooking the downtown city skyline and the Lake Tahoe Mountain range sits this custom-built mountain modern styled new construction home. The home was designed to live for everyday life for a young busy family of three with two dogs, but to also host and entertain all their family and friends. For this residential new construction project, the client wanted a modern forever home that reflected their individual personalities, and they would be proud to entertain their guests in. Maintaining the sweeping views was important as well as keeping the overall feel of the home light, full of life, sleek, and glamourous with hints of European modern inspiration. Even though they wanted a sleek modern home they still wanted it to feel like home, be cozy, inviting, and still feel luxurious not ordinary. Throughout the home each space was carefully thought through and detailed to be cohesive with the whole home, but to have individual personality.

Featured in the home are four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, an open concept kitchen, a large walk-in pantry, open dining and great room, a large home office, laundry/craft room, mudroom, golf simulator room, gym, and a media room complete with fireplace, kitchenette, and built-in wine display storage with two large locking glass doors. On the exterior of the house are several patio and decks, a built-in pool with waterfall feature, an outdoor TV, a putting green, and a large private enclosed dog run.

Some inspiration for the home came from European sleek styling for the kitchen with the range hood concealed in the upper cabinets and all cabinet hardware are tab pulls that leave the flat panel faces clean. To make the kitchen more unique, I selected a dark walnut as the primary color and then highlighted them with a lighter walnut. In the dining room the client’s wanted a custom 8-foot walnut dining table with black metal accents that would be the statement piece of the space and was designed by the principal interior designer. Each space is unique, but still cohesive with the rest of the home utilizing glamourous glass and organic three-dimensional tiles, stunning wallpapers, concrete, and three-dimensional wall panels. Luxurious custom drapes were made for the master bedroom and their teen’s bedroom and are connected to an integrated system that opens and closes them with a push of a button. The overall design objective of the forever home was a space they could grow into, enjoy for years to come in a sleek, modern, and glamourous way, and infusing the family’s fun and playful personalities. The overall design objective was achieved as well as giving them an inviting, cozy, and warm environment that they can share with family and friends for many years to come.
