You have probably heard around town that the Southern Living Idea House for 2015 is now open in the Bundoran Farm community just south of Charlottesville.  This is quite prestigious for our area and Summit Custom Homes, the builder of the house.  Each year Southern Living magazine chooses one house and one builder to be highlighted in their Idea House issue (the August issue is currently on newsstands.)

I was thrilled to be asked to design the master closet and it is a stunner.  The closet soars to the 10′ ceiling providing cubbies for all manner of things.  Lucite fronts showcase sweaters and scarves, ties and belts.  I hope that it is feminine enough for most women but not too fussy for the man of the house.  I’d love to hear your opinion.

Our Closet Factory installers did a great job under tricky conditions.  The house was a beehive of artisans working to have the house finished on time.

The house is in a beautiful setting – 90% of Bundoran Farm’s 2300 acres is under conservation easement, and the home interior was designed by Bunny Williams, a Charlottesville native recently named a Grand Master by Elle Decor magazine.  Schedule plenty of time for your visit so that you can take in all the small details.
