Doors Painted Black Look Sharp In Contemporary Crossover

January 08, 2016 | PHOTOGRAPHY BY SANDY MACKAY

Southampton family home influenced by past generations.

 
Southampton entrepreneurial brothers Ben and Dylan Freeburn rave about the Alair Homes project management system that they used to help them build a custom home for Dylan and his wife Serena. The homebuilder brothers recently joined Alair after transitioning their father’s independent business, Freeburn Fine Homes. They used the system to show every cost, down to the cent, for the new family home. “There is a real need in the industry for transparency and better communication and we see a way to achieve that with Alair,” says Ben and Dylan.
 
Black interior and exterior doors pop against the neutral backdrop. Serena’s flair for aesthetic and DIY touches, combined with Dylan and Ben’s industry experience, makes for an impeccably decorated and sleek contemporary crossover space.
 
The rich textures, colours and finishes of the décor work with a strong base of neutral tones: the off-white and grey walls, white kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, natural walnut hardwood floors in a matte finish, and grey and white ceramic tiles.
 
Warm wood elements and a marble countertop help to soften the stark white palette that is paired with industrial-style pendants and stainless appliances  in the open-concept kitchen.
 
Solid-wood dining chairs and an office sideboard table were passed down from a grandmother and the master bedroom headboard is an old barn door salvaged from their parent’s farm.
