But a funny thing happened along the way: They realized that they’d created their own dream home. As builders, the couple would have felt a lot of pressure had they been designing for themselves. But while working on a show home, they felt the freedom to just have fun. They plan to move in this October. The style: Many of the homes built on infill lots in this neighborhood are quite modern, but the couple wanted their show home to feel different, specifically, “a little more homey,” Nicole says. “We wanted it to feel like a place where you could gather with your whole family and cook and entertain.” Since the kitchen opens to the dining and family areas and a wall of bright white shiplap paneling, the Tews wanted the cabinets to be darker, as a contrast. “It was a little bit scary, because the entire rest of the home is white — white shiplap, white walls,” Nicole says. “It was definitely a departure and a risk to do the dark kitchen.”How to Design a Warm Contemporary Kitchen
