Winston-Salem Interior Designer Delights With The Details As This Parade Of Homes Entry Wins Platinum

Posted on | February 2, 2016 | No Comments

I love being able to present whole house projects to the readers of North Carolina Design. In her own words today, good friend, guest blogger and Winston-Salem interior designer June DeLugas takes us on a tour of this newly constructed house. I know you will enjoy reading about the creativity of June and her firm in this award-winning home.

In the world of interior design, the homes and spaces we design are our canvases and we are the artists. Our most recent Winston-Salem Fall Parade of Homes entry for June DeLugas Interiors provided a most delightful canvas – a custom built home which included unique architectural and organic elements.

This artistic endeavor was built in the charming Buena Vista neighborhood by award-winning builder, Don Hamrick, owner of Custom Homes by Hamrick, Inc. Prior to construction, this journey and project began with a field trip to three older homes that were scheduled to be torn down. We wanted to identify architectural elements that could be salvaged and incorporated into the new home.

Beautiful, warm heart pine floors were collected and stored for this project. While the reclaimed floors set a nostalgic tone, the house also incorporates a more modern open floor plan well suited for today’s families and their lifestyles.

Organic elements such as Belvedere leathered granite paired nicely with the natural stone selected for the fireplace. This was purposely chosen to emulate similar stone in nearby homes. An irregular handmade subway tile backsplash in the kitchen worked wonderfully well with the leathered and natural stone. The Parade of Homes judges commented on the beauty of the granite and how well all these design elements came together.

With this perfect canvas in place, it was time to work on the selection of colors throughout the house. Rather than trying to match colors, we chose to layer a combination of blues, teals, and corals. These colors appear in various ways throughout the home, from throw pillows on the sofa to linen window treatments. The star of the show is a teal grass cloth in the dining room by Phillip Jeffries. It catches the eye the moment you walk through the foyer. A casually comfortable coral and cream striped cotton rug plays off the heart pine floors in the master bedroom.

Staying with Benjamin Moore paint colors throughout the house, we chose a warm Maritime White for the walls and White Dove for the trim and ceiling. For the laundry room and powder room, we chose White Ice, which is a cooler and lighter color with just a touch of teal. The bonus room is adorned with Palladian Blue, emphasizing historical colors. Last but not least, we chose Classic Gray for the basement walls.

Staging the home with many antique accessories brought in a bit of the feeling the old in with the new. Antique English cream ware accented the bookcase while Staffordshire Bouquet dishes by Johnson Brothers added charm to the glass kitchen cabinets. It had the warmth and casual benefits of traditional and transitional design.

We were once thrilled to receive the Platinum Award for the second time in this competition, having won our first Platinum Award in October of 2013. This award was first introduced four years ago to reward the most creative home with the highest score. Only one home is chosen each year for this prestigious honor. It is both gratifying and humbling to have been a part of this unique project.
