RESIDENTIAL INTERIOR DESIGN UNDER 3,500 SQUARE FEET FIRST PLACE: BENTLEY TIBBS ARCHITECT, LEAD ARCHITECT BENTLEY TIBBS NATHAN SCHRODER PROJECT: Catawba Residence DESIGN CONCEPT: This master bedroom of this transitional Bluffview home is soft and elegant, full of opulent materials and texture. Silk velvets, mixed metals, silk carpeting and satin upholstery set the tone for an extremely inviting space. Moore custom-designed the oversized headboard and marble-topped bedside tables to achieve the proper scale for the room, making the large space feel cozier. Custom bedding adds depth to the creamy color palette of opal, sand and off-white. A gilded bench by Jan Showers adds dimension to the foot of the bed. The lamps in the room are by Baker. The feminine sofa — the perfect length for naps — is by Dennis & Leen. RUNNER-UP: M. Barnes & Co., designer Marci Barnes, for Koonsman Master Bedroom PROJECT: Bluffview Kitchen DESIGN CONCEPT: The client is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America at Greystone who wanted her kitchen to be as measured and preplanned as her recipes. Even though she is not working as a chef professionally, she wanted the space to function like a professional kitchen yet still have the warmth of a home kitchen. She requested a design that would be casual, warm and comfortable, while bringing in some of the California vibe that she and her husband love. Although this kitchen follows a typical chef's galley layout, the design solutions and unusual materials set it apart, including a wall clad in walnut for dangling pots and PROJECT: Ranch Guest Cottage DESIGN CONCEPT: This family ranch in East Texas has a large main house that sleeps 12, and it's where day-to-day activities and entertaining occur. A separate bunkhouse sleeps an additional 12, and two three-bedroom guest cottages on the property are intended for special guests to have a private place to relax and sleep. Tibbs designed this three-bedroom, two-bath, 2,000-square-foot guest cottage from materials choreographed in a modern vocabulary, so that the family ranch can be carried forward by new generations. Rustic and rough materials of stone, wood and concrete were used on both the exterior and the interior to tie the guesthouse to the land. The exterior is primarily comprised of a Texas Milsap limestone, stained cedar and zinc. Floor-to-ceiling windows throughout minimize the need for art and make nature a focus. An expansive master bedroom and airy master bath provide excellent refuge IRA MONTGOMERY CHARLES DAVIS SMITH and a screened-in porch features a dining area flanked by two hanging daybeds — ideal for catnaps or sleeping outdoors on crisp Texas nights.
