yin & yang The renovated residence celebrates the marriage of dark and light, east and west, feminine and masculine. The two-year overhaul included kitchen, laundry, master suite (bedroom, bathroom, closet), guest room + bathroom.
a beautifully blended home When the couple recently retired, they saw their newly found freedom as the perfect time to engage a designer to reimagine their urban Shaker Heights home and become a place that would reflect their well-lived lives. The vision was a home that compliments each of their styles into one fluid space.
bold simplicity Dawn believes a space tells the story of its keepers. With a palette of bright whites and rich darks, she translated the couple’s distinct style—a high contrast personality with a penchant for harmony and culture. The reimagined kitchen combines sleek white cabinetry with custom-fabricated bar and rosewood dining table—the perfect backdrop for the homeowner’s worldly collections and friendly gatherings.
a global retreat Trips to Asia inspired how the couple wanted their sleeping quarters to feel. A global array of found art, shoji doors and moody saturated walls define the master suite as a zen-like space. Mixed-materials turn their home bath into a rich retreat and create a welcoming place to unwind.
