WillowTree Custom Homes and designer Susan Semmelmann went to New York to find inspiration for the interior of their 2020 Dream Street home at 1105 High Court in Southlake’s Oxford Place.

Semmelmann calls the style “rustic contemporary,” exemplified by New York’s 1 Hotel Central Park, which finished its rooms in natural elements like woods and metals and gave them names like “Alcove” and “Greenhouse.” “I wanted to give a sense of class to the organic design elements but still make it home and warm,” Semmelmann, of Susan Semmelmann Interiors, says.

The Dream Street home, built by WillowTree and its interior designed by Semmelmann, is two stories and 7,551 square feet, with five bedrooms and six baths. The home, as in transitional, contemporary and modern design, shows off a free-flowing and open floorplan. It’s meant to entertain, from the moment guests approach the front entry and its private garden fountain, step inside the two-story atrium foyer, and join the party that’s sure to billow onto the covered patio by evening’s end.

Semmelmann brings natural elements — colors, textures, shapes, materials, images — into every room and pushes past the typical. “It’s a dream home,” says Semmelmann, in her fourth Dream Home partnership with the magazine. “Our inspiration is for you to walk and see something you’ve never seen before.”

She makes ample use of Dekton concrete flooring and its elegant hues and woodlike finishes. Dekton ties the first floor and covered porch together, but Semmelmann also uses it on the great room’s massive fireplace mantel — the home’s “masterpiece” — and on walls, built-in furniture, and shelving. DuChateau hardwood flooring makes its way onto the home’s ceilings, not just the rustic flooring that unifies the second story.

Semmelmann uses light fixtures to augment every room, showed off most prominently with 16 Kichler pendants she clusters into two grand metal and glass fixtures in the great room. Metals, glass, and wood find their way into each fixture throughout the home; Passion Lighting, a longtime Dream Home partner to the magazine, provided the fixtures for all three 2020 Dream Street homes.

“That’s what takes it to a Dream Home level,” she says. “We wanted fixtures in every room. Most builders want to put ceiling fans in, for cost. [WillowTree] let us go totally out of the box. I think lighting makes the house.”
