Midcentury Modern in Town & Country
This Modern Prairie stunner was awarded the 2020 Custom Home of the Year by the St Louis Home Builders Association. This home was also featured in the "At Home" section of the St Louis Post-Dispatch and the living room where it was also voted one of the "21 Best Rooms Featured in 2021."
Our client, Amy DeSart, works in the high-paced world of healthcare and had begun the process of building this home before the COVID-19 pandemic upended the world. Though it slowed some of the construction, this project was a "labor of love" for DeSart and was completed after 18 months of construction.
A world traveler, DeSart's passion for far-flung destinations is only rivaled by her love of entertaining friends at home. You can see her passions in every design moment throughout the home - from the C-shaped floor plan that offers privacy for her and a guest wing to the pearlescent finishes that gently evoke oceanic treasure.
The finishes are unified by matte gold and delicate crystal details throughout. When coupled with with clean lines and high-contrast color choices and the pieces of found architectural art pieces she's brought home during her travels, create a sophisticated elegance to the entire home.
DeSart designed her dream home in the midcentury modern style made famous by Frank Lloyd Wright and his Prairie School of Architecture. Mixed natural stone and wood materials and generous stretches of windows - both top to bottom and side to side - can be found around every corner.
