David Charlez Designs together with Bria Hammel Interiors has designed this beautiful home that celebrates the balance of modern, clean design and soft, organic details, nestled in Lakeland Township, a suburb of St. Paul, Minnesota. This family’s dream home is surrounded by trees, offering a peaceful and intimate place for this family to grow for years to come.

Inside this dwelling, you will find a mix of traditional elements with modern touches, achieving a harmonious balance between light and airy, and dark and moody aesthetics throughout the home. Durable finishes were selected, catering to the lifestyle needs of this family with young children. This includes porcelain countertops in the kitchen and ceramic tile flooring that appears like marble in the mudroom. This project two years to complete. Continue below for the tour…
