Urban life and technology meets farmhouse relaxed charm and comfort in the latest project from Bella Vici. Lead designer, Christy Howell, brought to life a Street of Dreams Home built by Authentic Custom Homes. Designing facade features to interior architecture was a labor of love for Christy. This beauty features 6,000 square feet of meticulously designed living space with each room having its own personality but a shared identity, much like the members of a family.
The clean pallet features swathes of white from the cabinets to bed linens with punches of strong color. Bold imported brass kitchen hardware brings a weight to this light space while the glass seating area bar top keeps it crisp. Keeping the home from being too austere was done with rustic hewn wood, plant life and relaxed furnishings.
Bella Vici’s furnishings and accessories paired perfectly with hand selected items Christy chose from Urban Farmhouse Designs who are also right here in Oklahoma City. You can’t go wrong with something made by hand and patinated by time. Things like the Chesterfield sofa has a modest fabric that feels easy and comfortable while still urbane. The pillows throughout the home all have unique personality and give each area the feeling of being thoughtfully special.
A dream home just isn’t complete without perfectly appointed spaces for those special needs like watching a favorite 80s flick or pummeling friends a pool. This Bella Vici beauty even has a climbing wall next to its beverage center. Elegant? Yes. Comfortable? Absolutely. Fun? You know it! Christy couldn’t wait to climb this wall.
Every bathroom has a mirror that frames its guest’s face as they bath in the recessed and ambient light chosen for each space. The durable and flowing quartz countertops ground the spaces with their weight and character. Glass shower enclosures maximize the size of each space while adding a bit of twinkle. As expected the master bath features those extra special touches with a stone bath enclosure and an attached yoga fitness room.
Shoes and wine, need I say more? This home has a stunner of a wine room encased in glass and finished with custom racks imported for this special space that showcase wine on wires and pegs. After passing under this delicious room’s Edison bulbed chandelier it’s time to lounge in the two-story closet.
Facetted globes dangle from the second story and are reflected in the counter of the center island. This is the perfect spot to perch on the blush bench and slip on that favorite pair of stilettos or just bury your feet in the plush carpet. Seasonal switch outs or simply items you feel deserve to be elevated are perfect for the upper deck of this amazing closet which is conveniently next to the large laundry.
Work and play find a balance in this home with the laundry and office that can also be a welcomed sanctuary for quiet. The laundry has a large window and an island gift wrap station, and the office features a hidden door on its sculpted wall.
This home may be on the Street of Dreams, but this is where dreams become reality thanks to Christy Howell of Bella Vici.
