This home embodies the organic modern interior design style that combines minimalism, neutral colors, organic silhouettes, and natural textures.

Whether you enter this home through the front door or back door, you are greeted with long sightlines that delight the eye with soothing colors and natural light. Sophistication abounds in the design selections and craftsmanship. The architecture boasts soaring ceilings, stunning window placement, and a family-friendly layout.

In the kitchen, Nut Brown walnut cabinets in a custom paneled door style from Grabill Cabinets show off the beauty of natural wood. The large format porcelain tile with prominent black veining used for the backsplash and range hood lend contrast and an organic silhouette. White Dove perimeter and upper cabinetry from Grabill Cabinets, along with white countertops and white pendant lighting, keep the color palette fresh and airy. The limited and clean-lined hardware selections fits the “less is more” aspect of organic modern interior design.

The laundry room shows off the beautiful Beach Textile finish from Plato Woodwork’s Inovae 2.0 collection. Custom arched floor-to-ceiling cabinets soften the look of the frameless cabinetry. Natural stone countertops provide ample room for folding laundry.

The master bathroom is truly a sanctuary. Heated clay tile floors feel luxurious underfoot and the large soaking tub is an oasis for busy parents. The unique vanity is a custom piece sourced by the interior designer. The continuation of the large format porcelain tile from the kitchen and the use of walnut on the linen cabinets from Grabill Cabinets, bring in the natural textures central to organic modern interior design.

Upstairs, the kids’ bathroom marries modern styling with a bit of whimsy for an eclectic feel. Green walls and green iridescent hand-cut tile ground the design. The floating Rift Cut White Oak vanity from Eclipse Cabinetry by Shiloh with natural stone countertop pops. Overall, the space is durable and fun.
