Decadent home in Utah blends French farmhouse with transitional style

This French farmhouse transitional style home was designed by  in collaboration with , located in North Salt Lake City, Utah. The square footage of this home was around 7,000 square feet and includes a library, home theater and ballet studio with six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Built by , the Eaglewood Loop project features a gorgeous exterior facade of painted brick, wood-clad aluminum windows and copper gutters/downspouts.

We spoke with the talented interior designer of this project, Tonya Olsen, who has graciously shared with us some details to help you gain a better perspective of what went into the design of this home. “The first and foremost goal of this project was to create something that looked and felt timeless. My clients wanted to their home to look like it was a historical feature in the neighborhood. They also wanted to make sure the interior showcased both their elegant and casual sides.”

Above: Although the front door was painted a custom color, a similar color match would be Hudson Bay 1680 | Benjamin Moore. The brick on the exterior facade was painted in KWAL paint in the color ‘Skoki’.

“My clients were most worried that their home wouldn’t be a reflection of their family. They’d interviewed several other designers and felt like they might be pushed into a direction that wasn’t their style. They felt confident that I’d be able to pull their character through every element in the home. However, I want to stress that my ability to do that is easiest to achieve when I have the client’s full involvement. I like to partner with my clients to make each project a collaborative effort.”

Above: The front entry features natural walnut wood in a herringbone pattern.

“With this project, the design decisions evolved naturally. I’ve never been a fan of deciding on all the finishes and details up front. I prefer to take my client’s ideas and concepts and iron out the details as we go. The homeowners were fun to work with on this project because their personality really came through with each design meeting we had.”

“All of the materials were hand selected and combined to create a unique space from the natural walnut floors to the neon green island in the laundry room. This house really is a juxtaposition of elements: neutral and bold, formal and relaxed.”

“My clients wanted to create spaces where the whole family could gather and spend casual, quality time yet have touches of refined sophistication throughout. They are a family of readers, so each sitting room, including the seated bench on the stair landing was designed to curl up at any time with a good book.”

Above: The living room showcases custom hand forged light fixtures with custom detailed millwork and paneling. The soft gray paint is by Farrow & Ball—Calluna No.270 and the herringbone wood floors are a natural walnut. The Juneau Floor Lamps were sourced from .

What We Love: This gorgeous home has been beautifully designed with great attention to detail throughout. The customized furnishings and finishes lends character and personality. Elegant yet inviting, we think anyone would feel right at home in this wonderfully designed home. The kitchen is a chef’s dream and the built-in banquette is the perfect spot to enjoy family time. The sunroom is a great addition to this home, to be enjoyed throughout all the seasons!

Someone’s possibly a tad bit OCD?

How many pairs of items can you find in this house?

What a delightful home! Although there are so many beautiful pieces of furniture it still feels open and airy. Stunning! Thanks Fitflopsale-Singapore, you guys always share the best homes!!


This home and it’s interior design is stunning, a perfect blend. I am however surprised and a little disappointed in the foyer. I expected something a little more than what it is considering a 7k sq. ft. home. This foyer reminds me of of homes built in the 70s and 80s or possibly a side entry.
