What’s in a name? For award-winning interior designer Cheryl Nestro and her Michigan-based design firm, Tutto Interiors, literally everything. Tutto, which means “everything” in Italian, perfectly captures the full-service home design offerings Cheryl provides to her clients – especially with this fabulous home project.

Habersham Belmont Library System by Tutto Interiors

Located in Howell, MI, this new 10,000-square-foot residential project was, essentially, a blank slate for Cheryl to bring her design vision to life. The clients contracted her to work with them from conception through final production on everything from architectural details and finishes to complete furnishing and styling.

Cheryl oversaw it all, including two complete kitchens on the main and lower level; a grand entranceway with dual staircases; a formal, Paris-inspired living room, and a transitional master suite. She also designed the home’s formal library and a two-story master bedroom closet – choosing Habersham custom cabinetry and furniture for these spaces.

For the library, she began with Habersham’s Belmont Library System, building the rest of the space around it

“All of the trim work was finished and incorporated to make the Habersham Belmont unit look as if it was built in,” she explains.

Faux finishes throughout the space, along with custom lighting, dressmaker drapery and carefully selected accent furniture and accessories complete the look.

The master bedroom has an entranceway that leads to a two-story closet. Working with the Habersham team, Cheryl designed a custom armoire for the closet entrance that is perfectly tailored for her client’s jewelry, purses and hats.

The closet on the second level includes a shadowbox for a wedding dress, custom lighting, plentiful storage and shelving.

“Habersham is such a versatile line,” she explains. “The vast custom capabilities give me the flexibility to create designs that are as fabulous as they are functional. “

A recent article in Forbes highlighted 9 trends expected to come on strong in kitchen design for 2016.  Among them,  soft, muted color palettes.  As outlined in the story:

Trend #1 — Soft, muted color palettes. Good news if you’re already thinking about switching up your color scheme: Kitchen colors are changing, according to interior designer Jane Lockhart. Though white motifs will still dominate, everything from cabinets to backsplashes will be done in less saturated tones. “Charcoal, grays and even neutral pastels like pale blue, pale green gray and tinted whites are the new alternative to the standard white,” she says. She also foresees kitchens sporting lighter wood tones, including walnuts, whitewashed woods and white oak in rift grain.

Other trends include  smart spaces, even more innovations for integrated kitchen-living spaces and more.

Design Trends 2016 : ‘Home As Sanctuary’

by Joyce Eddy, Chairman of the Board  |

Habersham Custom Dressing Room Design

A recent article in The Post and Courier suggests that interior design is trending towards meaningful and healthy for 2016.  As reported in the story:

Embracing and heartfelt, genuine and environmentally minded, classic and contemporary — perhaps even an eclectic mix of the two — as long as it reflects a personal and meaningful take on the world.

That’s where interior design is headed in 2016: toward homes that neutralize the complexity and stress of life by becoming retreats of greater authenticity and peacefulness rather than places full of generic and relatively meaningless stuff.

“In design, people are talking about well-being across the board, physical and emotional,” said New York interior designer Robin Wilson, founder and CEO of Robin Wilson Home and author of “Clean Design: Wellness for Your Lifestyle.” “It is not just about beautiful anymore.”

It’s more about soul and meaning, said Charleston designer Beverly Bohan of Haute Design. She describes a home integrating the best of contemporary and classical pieces in a clean approach that creates an environment that’s about you and what you stand for.

“It’s no longer about buying to buy and just putting stuff out there,” Bohan said. “It’s not disposable. It’s more thoughtful … genuine, personal. It’s about how you live, your personality, your values, what represents you and your philosophy of life.”

Here at Habersham we certainly agree.  We love working closely with our designer, dealer and homeowner clients to create meaningful interiors that not only reflect the lifestyle needs and dreams of the homeowner, but offer timeless looks that can last for generations to come.

Kellie Burke was delighted to receive a call from a new client hoping to use Habersham custom cabinetry for the kitchen and bath spaces of her beachfront home on Long Island Sound.

“We met and I learned more about her and the hopes she had for her beautiful home. She absolutely loves to entertain – hosting parties for family and friends that are renowned for their fun, carnival atmosphere complete with blow-up castles and theme park feel. She’s also an incredible baker known as much for her cookies, cakes and pastries as her festive gatherings,” Kellie explains. “ So she wanted a home that would complement the beautiful beach setting, handle her baking needs and provide the perfect backdrop for her events.”

For the oversized, galley-style kitchen, Kellie started with a large center island in a rich, dark wood finish.

Lending an antique, Old World look to the space with stately corbels and other detailing, the island offers practical and plentiful storage areas for platters, trays , other cookware and entertaining needs.

She also used Habersham around a beautiful window – framing it with glass curios to house treasured china and crystal from her client’s grandmother. Kellie added a plank wood top over the window and cabinets beneath for additional storage.

Kellie had Habersham’s artisan team paint images of pastries and other desserts on the wall mount range hood as a tribute to her client’s famous baking skills. Additional cabinetry throughout the space provides a lovely complement to a gorgeous, antique tile backsplash design on both walls.

Waterstone fixtures and the exposed front of the Thermador range add a subtle industrial accent that perfectly complements the Old World feel of the space.

For the master bath, Kellie looked to clean, simple design lines and soft, light finishes to perfectly reflect the sand and sea just steps away.

With a hint of French Country styling, a Bombay bump out vanity, tub surround, drawers, cabinets and wall paneling complete the look.
