We’re ecstatic to announce Ellecor has been selected as the winner of the 2 Million and Up category of 417 Home magazine’s Home of the Year. We worked alongside the professionals from Vanguard Homes and J.L. Thompson Design Group to make our client’s dreams a reality. Head to our gallery to see the full gallery of photos from the winning home.
The East Retreat, a beautiful modern prairie-style family home, was selected by two professionals from the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, a not-for-profit professional trade association.
Our client wanted her new dream home to be completely different from her current home at the time, which incorporated heavier finishes and heavy wooden beams. We were excited for the chance to move on to an open and light concept.
The building’s structure worked beautifully with an airy aesthetic. In the front of the house is a wall of windows paired with a floating staircase. The open slats on the stairs allow for openness and uncluttered space. An individual light illuminates each step.
In the home’s living spaces, we’ve worked carefully to continue using colors with added warmth while balancing the large and open space. With 25-foot ceilings and walls of windows, it can be challenging to make a home of this scale keep a soft and homey feeling. We kept the room welcoming by playing with textures and using graphic wallpapers.
In the kitchen, we’ve opted to use a custom-stained floor on either side of a large kitchen island, which complements the white oak floor used in most of the home. These colors work to keep rooms feeling warm while not taking away from the airiness of the space.
Throughout the home, we’ve used a combination of textures and patterns to keep each space unique. This dream home is unique to our client, with various custom stains and fixtures. This home also boasts beautiful landscaping and a spacious outdoor area. In the backyard sits a screened and heated porch next to a pool, with plenty of relaxing space.
