The first step in designing the BDH was actually picking out the subdivision, in that we let the European style of Hasentree help dictate many of our interior and exterior design choices. The next big decisions were the floorplan and the many structural options. We chose to add two rooms to our Duncan Country Manor floor plan - the Retreat and the Naples Sunroom. We also substantially lengthened one of the master closets, added a wine cellar and added/modified two balconies.

The next and probably most important step was our multi-week design studio experience, which I chronicled in the post below. This is where we picked out all of our interior faucets, fixtures, door hardware, paint colors, cabinet styles and colors, granite, marble, tile, hardwoods and anything else you can think of that goes into a home.

Then, once we were within a few months of the BDH's completion, we started selecting furniture, curtains and decor for the BDH. Check out all of the design, decor and furniture goodies below, barbies!
