Lindsey Christie, owner and principal designer at Lindsey Grace Interiors, collaborated with Garon Construction to create the industrial, light and bright feel that the homeowners of this project were seeking.
Garon Construction is a family owned, custom home builder based in Thompsen, North Dakota. Originally started by Gary Walsh in 1972, the business is now operated by siblings Stacy, Ryan and Mike Walsh.
After just a few drafts, Ryan, lead designer and drafter for Garon Construction, created a floor plan that the homeowners were quite fond of. The three-level plan features five beds, six baths, as well as a main level home office and playroom, and a basement wet bar.
The home’s coffered ceiling is constructed of a light oak connecting with the stairwell balusters and flooring choice.
The unique metal work, found on the floor-to-ceiling fireplace, kitchen range hood and wine rack, were custom designed by Eric Kading with Straight Line Design.
“One of the super fun things about this project was playing with the contrast throughout the kitchen,” said Christie.
In the kitchen you find an inspirational twist on a modern-day white theme. Keeping the light and bright design but adding elements of contrast in with the industrial-style custom range hood and wine rack, as well as various cabinet finishes. The dual islands, both finished in Benjamin Moore’s Black Beauty, provide different uses, one for prep and one for seating. You may also notice an island prep sink in addition to the main farmhouse-style one.
As fans of the Minnesota Vikings, the homeowners wanted to find a way to incorporate design elements of the U.S. Bank Stadium into their home. With this in mind, Christie and the Garon team chose to finish the basement wet bar with black cabinets and a Cambria quartz countertop that can actually be found in the U.S. Bank Stadium.
