The 2012 Indianapolis Monthly Dream Home, built by Scott B. Campbell Custom Homes, Remodeling & Developments with interior design by the Savvy Decor team, is the ultimate collaboration of designers from all around Indianapolis contributing their talents to the 10,000-square-foot blank canvas waiting for them in Laurel Ridge, an Encore Sotheby’s International Realty development. The project benefits the Dyslexia Institute of Indiana.
This year, the designers of the Dream Home took an uncommon approach to designing the home by painting all of the walls a simple white. “The architecture in the house is so beautiful. The white walls help accentuate all of the beautiful arches and detailing in the home,” said Linda Mordoh, owner of Savvy Decor, in an interview with Indianapolis Monthly.
However, there is no lack of color to be found in the home. ”Even though the walls are white, we wanted to show that you could throw in the color. You can still have lots of color with white walls,” Mordoh said in the interview. While white walls and cream trim dominate the home, every surface in the home is natural stone or wood. Additionally, the white walls create the perfect display for a variety of art pieces showcased throughout the home, including work by Walter Knabe*.
Some of the most notable portions of the home include the kitchen, an open floor design by Conceptual Kitchens & Millwork*, as well as the owner’s suite and the art studio. The suite’s accessories and furniture make the room a luxurious retreat for any owner, while the baths are split between ‘his’ and ‘hers’ providing an elegant bath with majestic chandeliers and heated floors. The art studio features a gallery of cheerful and colorful paintings by local fine artist Barry Lantz*.
Lighting throughout home was provided by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery*, while bedrooms were furnished with bed frames and mattresses by Holder Mattress Co*. On the exterior of the home, the Outdoor Environments Group* contributed to landscaping while Architectural Brick & Tile designed the stonework around the house both inside and outside.
Overall, the home provides an elegant balance of vibrancy, warmth and simplicity and thousands are expected to visit the newly designed home during the 16-day tour. Learn more about the home and reserve your tickets online today!
