The not-so-secret secret of many of today’s most compelling interiors is an effortless mix of comfort and luxury, rustic and refined. That’s the recipe the Remedy Design Firm, designer Joe Carrick and builder McEwan Custom Homes created when they fashioned a new home for their clients in Utah County. For those who didn’t get enough of this project in our recent story The Comforts of Home (which is to say everybody), there’s much more to enjoy here.

A rustic, reclaimed beam shoulders the range hood in the open kitchen. A backsplash of Bedrosians’ Cloe tile shimmers below while open shelves display stacks of everyday decanters and dishes.

Black iron lanterns hang above the kitchen’s walnut island topped with softly veined quartz.

Masterfully crafted in walnut, the dining area’s custom hutch anchors the wall and displays the owner’s collection of cake stands. Reclaimed beams add rustic charm to the ceiling above.

Wood-clad ceilings crown the living room area, where a wall of large windows fills the room with natural light and mountain views. A stone fireplace adds visual weight and draws the eye toward the high ceiling.

The home features a recurring mix of painted and natural wood finishes. Custom cabinets on both sides of the living room fireplace boast storage-rich, built-in benches topped with cushions and pillows.

Layered shades of white provide a serene backdrop for a black, free-standing tub in the primary bathroom. A fabric blind features a subtle plaid. The classic pattern repeats throughout the décor.

The bathroom’s light-filled space is reflected in tilted vanity mirrors. Custom cabinets are painted in Benjamin Moore’s Galveston Gray. Sconces are by Visual Comfort.

Handsome paneling wraps the music room with timeless, traditional style. A black grand piano anchors this welcoming space located off the main entry.

A spacious entry greets visitors with custom double doors opening to the interior. A wreath hangs on the entry’s board-and-batten wall painted in Railings by Farrow & Ball.

The designers added interest to the laundry room using patterned floor tiles, tiny mosaic wall tiles, a window seat and a 20s-inspired wall sink.

The doors to the woman’s office are working replicas of distressed antique versions she wanted for her space. The room is located off the main entry.

Black walls, a rustic wood ceiling and mounted taxidermy give the husband’s office a decidedly masculine vibe.
