Design Elements


Hunter Green, Dark Blues and Metallic infused color in to the white-on-white decor .  For example, a one-of-a-kind green and black tiled bathroom off the guest room provides an oasis of calm.


Reclaimed beams nods to the husband’s need for a rustic look .  Likewise, wood walls in the lower level family room come from Kentucky tobacco barns (harking to the husband’s family’s racehorses).


The use of plants throughout the home provide a sense of life, layers and texture.


Create dimension, with hunter green lizard skin in the front entry, abstract patterning in the powder bath to feathers and flowers in the two laundry rooms.

Design meets function

Custom cabinetry is carefully crafted for everything from knives to toothbrushes. Furthermore, Crypton upholstery fabrics on all the furniture will wear well with young children and pets.  Most importantly, the boys can let off steam in the families’ sport court.  Hockey or basketball anyone?  Last but not least, a specially designed gun room, along with integrated safe door (not shown in pictures for privacy) balances out the yin and yang design style with the families’ needs and wants within the home.

Heart of home

The heart of the home is truly the kitchen – with dramatic high ceilings, double islands, open concept and attached pantry. Function continues to the dining room’s floor which is an easily washed ombre tile pattern that feathers into a custom stained white oak floor. The hearth room which sits on the other side of the double fireplace from the dining room creates a convenient space for morning cartoons or late evening bourbon drinking.

A Winning Team

This coastal cottage for a sophisticated sportsman is the second home Todd Simning of Kroiss Development  masterfully built for this client. This is due to the solid, life-long relationships he fosters.  Todd’s expertise includes creating winning teams that are integral to the success of the project and start on day one.  Once construction begins, everyone is on the same page ensuring the project goes more smoothly.
