Some may think that smaller homes can cramp one’s style. The pros that created this new family home in Mapleton are not among them. Constrained by a uniquely shaped wide-and-shallow property, Remedy Design Group’s Stacey Andersen and Joey Johnson teamed with Curtis Design Group’s Mitch Lee and R.C. Dent Construction’s Scott Dent to conceive and build the home noted for its moderate size, light filled rooms and an open, flowing floor plan. Photographer Rebekah Westover snapped many inspiring photos of the residence, and we’ve gathered some of those that didn’t make it into our print feature story Modern Tudor. Try these on for size.
A large, beam-framed opening frames views of the vaulted great room and entry from the open kitchen and dining areas. The many windows, abundant natural light and welcoming open floor plan make the home’s 2,400 square foot main level feel spacious and surprisingly large.
The wide shallow lot drove the home’s design that Lee describes as a linear rambler featuring, front to back, a maximum of two rooms deep. A high-contrast palette, wide-plank siding and mixed stone deliver contemporary flair while swooping rooflines, bay windows, shallow soffits and an arching buttress reference architecture of the past.

In the great room, curves soften the décor while streamlined linear elements lend an uncluttered modern edge. Fully upholstered sofas mix with skirted chairs to furnish the sitting area while contemporary open-framed tables deliver lighter, airier forms.
The dining room, located off the open kitchen, features a more linear and airy décor, the designers explain. Two strongly linear chandeliers hang above an oval dining table that helps soften the ambiance. A comforting mix of wood tones does the same.
Inside the front door, a table doubles as an entry table and a rounded sculptural piece that anchors the light-filled foyer area between the living and kitchen areas.
A dark walnut-based island boldly contrasts with the kitchen’s creamy white cabinets, range hood and painted-brick wall. Behind the space, the butler’s pantry features open shelves, plentiful two-tone cabinetry and large windows finely dressed in plaid Roman shades.
A plaid wool runner animates the light-filled staircase linking the home’s main living and lower levels. Featuring a modern take on traditional paneling, the walls are clad with protruding panels that form eye-catching dimensionality and detail The custom handrail is walnut.
Located at the end of the home, the large great room is clad in dark siding and loaded with windows. It adjoins the adjacent tall, glass-fronted staircase to help make the house appear like a larger, 1 1/2 story home, Lee explains.
Light floods the Mapleton home’ great room. Located at the east end of the home, the gallery-like space boasts loads of natural light, mountain views and eye-catching architecture elements.
In the office, the designers rejected bulky built-ins and, instead, they added open shelves that allow the wall’s brick detail to show through. Above, the ceiling is dressed in walnut, delivering the warmth of natural wood to the space.
In the primary bedroom, a soft color palette calms the space while a ceiling tray dressed with herringbone-patterned planking elevates the room with unique, understated detail.
Dark walnut paneling creates bold contrast that accentuates handsomely displayed serving pieces and art in the pantry’s open shelves.
