Take a tour inside this absolutely stunning dream house in Illinois

transitional-home-exterior

This gorgeous transitional-style dream house was designed by Studio 1 Architects in collaboration with Amy Storm & Company, located in Wheaton, Illinois. On the exterior facade, the black siding, fascia, and roof with the earthy, warm brick are the perfect mix for this home.

The darker, moody vibe of the exterior provides a fabulous contrast to the light and bright interior. Inside you will find a harmonious floor plan with light and airy living spaces that are warm and welcoming and highly functional for family living.

Just a beautiful design overall . Very tastefully done , nothing to pick apart. I am in construction and I have seen a lot over my years and there is nothing I would change on this design. Bravo
One question I do have is what would the width of this lot be ?

This is an excellent example of space scale and detail. The designer understood the human scale is an intimate and functional way. I am impressed!

Beautiful home! Thoughtful design. Finishes are lovely while being “livable”.

very nice! an example of “practical” luxury. arbor mills generally did a great job; the kitchen looks to be well laid out. i don’t know about the retractable chopping board, though – i keep thinking that when you stow the chopping block in the dark, any bacteria will multiply like mad. i really like the idea, though. it seems like stainless steel might have been a better choice. i like the designer’s approach in repeating elements – it gives for a more unified appearance. i didn’t know that sub-zero made a panel-ready refrigerator with a glass door. you don’t see… Read more »

I was wondering if you can give any info on the furniture. Specifically the dining/kitchen chairs. I love them and want them!

Thank you for that info, but I’m sorry! I wasn’t clear on which ones. I’m interested in the chairs around the table next to the kitchen.

Is there any way to put links to the interior doors, exterior doors, etc?

i suspect that she is wants to know about the *front* exterior door. i don’t think that anderson makes european style doors. the 4 hinges suggests to me that this might have been a custom door. this doesn’t look like an actual european door, so i suspect that the door fabricator took a standard 45mm thick door blank and attached door pull hardware. i assume the locking mechanism is a standard deadbolt. i am going to also assume that it is a latch/deadbolt combination, which means that opening the door from the inside would be a two-handed operation.

Yes, I was specifically wanted to know about the front door. I have looked and cannot find one like it anywhere!
