Today we’re taking you back inside the French Moderne Manor for a tour of the casual and sophisticated living room. Yep…this is casual comfort at a whole new level my friends. I mean really, that 13 foot long sofa is practically begging you to come sit on it (or lay on, sleep on, jump on…whatever). This room is flooded with natural light throughout the day, which automatically makes it a crowd pleaser. But our personal favorite is the wall to wall book shelves that are styled to perfection.
While good design typically doesn’t need too use a whole lot of “smoke and mirrors”…that’s exactly what we did in this hallway powder bath. Literally. The end result is so dramatic!
You might even notice one reoccurring theme throughout the home…circles. They’re incorporated in the balusters, hallway pillars, mirrors, and light fixtures. It really ties everything together and brings the design full circle (pun-intended), don’t you think!?

It’s official. Summer is over. OK…there’s technically still 30 days left in the summer solstice, but let’s face it, the days of carefree fun in the sun are gone. And while we love a good pair of fall boots and the kids back in school as much as anyone, it’s definitely sad to see such a magical summer go. An incredibly rewarding summer at that! We feel like we ended this summer with a real BANG! Our French Moderne Manor parade home was awarded “Best Home” in the 2015 Utah Valley Parade of Homes People’s Choice Awards. Woot woot! Not to mention, it swept the competition also winning Best Master Suite, Best Kitchen, Best Landscaping, and (drum-roll please) BEST INTERIOR DESIGN! It definitely makes all of our hard work on this huge summer project worth it!
As one final adieu to summer, it seems only appropriate that we share with you the beautiful outdoor living space of the French Moderne Manor. I mean…aren’t you jealous that you didn’t get to spend your summer poolside here like us? Alright, there definitely was no lounging about on our end, but even arranging the furniture in 100+ degree heat was pretty dreamy. Just close your eyes and envision a secluded beach in the south of France lined with black and white cabanas. Actually, no need to envision it…we’ll just show you!
Do you know what your house is missing? I do. It’s this rug! This 100% hair on hide rug is the perfect neutral, texture, and pattern for any space!
Let’s be honest. No room is complete without a perfect area rug. But the problem with many rugs is that they can be so hard to maintain. Not this rug. Not only is this hide rug stunningly attractive, but is also extremely durable.
Hand crafted in India and brought to your home by Alice Lane, this rug not only could be yours, but should be. Stop by our Trolley location and check it out for yourself. You’ll soon realize that a hair on hide rug is the way to go!
Today we’re showcasing another space in our French Moderne Manor project. It’s easy to get carried away designing the most visible spaces of your home and neglecting to put thought and effort into those little spaces that you actually use on a daily basis…like the laundry room. Let’s face it, no one really enjoys doing the laundry. But when your laundry room is as beautiful as this, the chore just doesn’t seem so menial. The main laundry room in the French Moderne Manor might even get you a little bit excited about it!
The classic black and white check floors are a stunning contrast against the white cabinets. Standing as the focal piece, the soapstone workbench was custom made for the space, requiring both a metal fabricator, carpenter, and stone mason to get the job done!
Our client was head over heels in love with this Rifle Paper Co. wallpaper, so we found it the perfect home in this petite powder room right off the laundry room. Isn’t it just so happy!? It’s the perfect pop of color and cheer in an otherwise neutral space.
The mudroom is all about function. You need a space where you can stash all of your shoes, coats, and bags and keep them out of site. This mudroom can do all of that, and then some. But most importantly, it’s welcoming. After all, your mudroom is essentially your own personal front door. We love how inviting this space turned out!
