Private Residence in Paradise, UT

This week we’re going to highlight the work of senior designer Pamela Jensen. Before Pam came to us, she designed at the Medici Co. in Logan, UT. This was the first project she worked on while with Medici and it was completed right before she moved to Salt Lake City. Pam worked closely with the homeowners for over two years to insure they got the home of their dreams. The home is nestled in a small town so the goal was to create a country estate that incorporates the setting into the design. The home has many formal details but maintains a cozy and comfortable atmosphere. Please excuse the amateur photos as they are merely snapshots documenting the construction of the home.

The classic red brick exterior incorporates traditional details like columns, dentil molding, and a Palladian window. (These photos were taken before the home was painted.)

One of Pam’s favorite details is the circular mullions in the Palladian window and the window above the entry.

Entry Foyer

An archway off of the entry leads to the formal dining room. The large-scale damask wallpaper by Scalamandre brings some formality to the room while the fresh lime green color keeps the room from becoming too stuffy.

Ceiling details have become one of Pam’s favorite elements and can be found in a lot of her work.

The home has a dramatic two-story great room with a curved balcony.

To keep the great room from being too lofty, a dark stained coffered ceiling was added. The dark ceiling helps bring it down to a more human scale.

The original design of the kitchen was closed off with a lot of unusual angles. The first change Pam made when she started the project was to adjust the kitchen plan making it a larger more open space. The double islands help create different zones in the kitchen so many people can be working at once.
This photo was taken before the backsplash was installed.

Since almost every guest sees the powder room it’s important for it to make a statement. The oval window, dark finish work, and Ralph Lauren wallpaper hopefully make this a powder room guests will remember.

Master Bathroom

Back to back vanities create a dramatic infinity mirror.

An office was incorporated into the master suite for the man of the house.

The kids bathrooms were given a little bit more of a contemporary, casual feel.
Pam’s Tip: Add little “frenchies” instead on one large door on doorways that are usually kept open (private baths, walk in closets etc.) to eliminate a large door swing.
One of the daughter’s requested built-ins but because her room wasn’t huge, a platform bed was incorporated into the design. The white shadow boxing provides a great headboard for her bedding to pop off of.
Custom lockers and dark wainscoting create a welcoming mudroom.
Hopefully the garden inspired Schumacher wallpaper helps makes doing the laundry a little bit less of a chore.
