A stroll through this glamorous yet grounded home just may leave you breathless. Inspired by the gorgeous texture and tones of these stunning marble slabs, Smyth House carried luxurious metal finishes through this open concept home to create a cohesive flow. Take a peek at the photos by Eric Kruk to soak in all the sublime details in this entertainer’s paradise.
From the designer… This 6,500 SQ FT luxury custom new build in the heart of Paradise Valley, Arizona channeled our contemporary design vibes and allowed us to dream up bold ideas and applications.
Tall, confident, classic and a little mysterious meets wild, sexy, fun-loving and laid back. They got together and this house is their love-child…. We call it #SHCasaBlanca.
The house was designed as a completely open floor plan so we knew we needed to create bold moments to help ground signature areas and make them feel like their own space. We created this 12′ fireplace feature to give your eye somewhere to immediately land once you’ve taken in the grand feeling of the soaring ceilings and floor to ceiling sliding doors. The ability for this home to completely open up left us daydreaming about the fabulous parties we would host in this house!
For the fireplace, we knew we really needed something of scale on the opposite side of the room so it didn’t feel off balance. We used this insane stone to create the drama and height in the kitchen range area. We used Sub-zero and Wolf appliances and we opted for the two-tone brass and black knobs on the range to correlate with the gorgeous Rohl two-toned plumbing we selected. We love the “jewelry” on this one! We wanted the front island to be a serious moment, so we created an overly dramatic waterfall look. It would have been way too much marble to have the cooking island incorporate the same stone, so we allowed it to simply fade away with the use of a black honed quartz countertop. The ceilings are so tall which allowed us to select serious statement-making light fixtures. These definitely did the trick.
From there, we pulled elements from the main room selections and pulled them into the other areas of the home, like the bar, secondary baths and the gorgeous primary bath. The materials are tonal, yet strong. We had fun with lighting and tile in this home. Each area is uniquely it’s own; however, comes together so well as a whole.
