Large Home Love

On occasion an exceptionally exciting renovation comes along. You are about to meet the McClure residence, also known as #jwdfoxpartyofsix on Instagram. I may have posted about this one j-u-s-t a little.

This property was a dream to work on. I was hired onto the project during the framing phase. Fortunately, I was on-board in time to put my stamp on the floor plan. My services were provided in conjunction with the builder, Chuck Hamilton Construction of Little Rock.

The vision for the home piqued my interest from the beginning. I mean, it’s not every day that an 8,000 square footer comes along. Not only was it was a huge project, but once I met this precious family of six, I knew it would be the perfect job for me!

I mean, this was our starting point, exterior-wise:

I can’t wait this entire post to show some of the almost-finished new exterior. So, without further ado:

Though this is only a snippet of the front, I am in love. The home was completely transformed from traditional to modern and clean. Here are some more exterior shots:

We replaced the red brick exterior with stucco in a custom color. The dark casement windows are in Iron Ore by Pella, which I love. We used gas lantern lighting from New Orleans-based company Bevolo Gas & Electric Lights. We added a contemporary metal mailbox from an awesome shop out of Austin, Texas I found on Etsy, Bold MFG & Supply. Then there is the custom iron door. Not just any door, this thing was around 17.5 feet and something like 5,000 pounds! It was created and installed by Arkansas Custom Iron Doors.

The door is ridiculously impressive, yes, but oh my word the KITCHEN. The kitchen is what culinary dreams are made of. Check this out:

I mean. Where to begin? White, white, white, of course. Features include a 60-inch range from Thermador with a custom hood, quartz countertop by The Countertop Store in Maumelle, and counter-height windows by Pella. The sink is an incredible white The Galley sink – FIVE FEET – with two industrial faucets by Blanco from PC Hardware & Design. Enjoy a few more kitchen pics:

I’m loving the clean, simple look and feel of the space! And just a few more:

 

This home also included a beautiful, functional laundry with metal lockers and a herringbone brick floor. The metal is from Bray Sheetmetal, right here in Little Rock, and the brick from Antique Brick Outdoors.  Larger families thrive on details that can help with organization and maximum use of space such as this.

It’s a functional dream come true, especially for a family with several kiddos. And speaking of kids, check out a couple of favorites from the kids’ rooms:

 

The wallpaper and custom beds are fantastic in both rooms! The black bed is painted with Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black, and the wallpaper is Kate Spade for Kravet in Confetti Dot Dalmatian (on the left). The green bed is painted in Sherwin Williams Leap Frog, and the butterfly wallpaper is by Jamie Brown Home, the Chelsea Lane Collection. Both wallpapers are from Designer Effects. The beds were custom constructed by Chuck Hamilton Construction. (Lucky kids!)

This house has so many bathrooms. Here are just a few after photos:

These are the powder bath and some of the kids’ bathrooms. And now for the master:

More white and gray marble with an open, airy space. The shower is also marble with custom chrome fixtures by Brizo Faucet. The mirrors are from Mirror Image Home with lighting by Visual Comfort & Co.

I love that this project took a complex, existing structure and turned it into a modern, streamlined, and functional family home. If the family is happy; I am happy!

XO,

Jill
