As most of you know I have been blogging for many years and I can tell when a home is well-built by a mile away and I can tell this builder is one who doesn’t cut corners. The attention to detail in this home built by Biltmore Co. is truly exceptional. Here, the designer and owner, Liz Amar, shares more details about this new-construction home:
“Honored to showcase our 2020 Boise Parade of Home “The Coronado” with the Home Bunch crowd. The Coronado’s footprint is the same footprint as our 2019 Parade of Home “The Adalaise” that swept all 1st place awards. We had such an amazing response to this style of home that bridges a calm California vibe with Idaho’s desire for a sprawling one story floor plan and we wanted to create that same easy feeling with a totally different layout that checks all the boxes for all sizes of families. This home is great for a growing family or a retired couple who loves to entertain. We were asked several times this year for a multi-generational floor plan that could easily be made smaller where clients needed it to shrink and equally easy to expand for larger lots. The result was “The Coronado” which again won Best Kitchen, Best Master, Best Interior Design, Best Decorating and Best Overall.
Our floor plan goals were to design an overly impressive entrance suitable for both modern & traditional tastes and have a separate entrance to the guest suite. Our three main design goals were: #1: Light. Light. Light.- Let the light in and place lighting fixtures where they’d make the most visual impact. #2: Create a home for our 4-legged friends- We wanted to introduce a dog feeding station at the end of the island as well as a dog wash area in the laundry room. #3: Create many spaces for entertaining and family centered around the kitchen. It’s difficult to pack a punch on a standard size lot when designing a one story floor plan to make it memorable, functional and crowd pleasing and this home does all that. And as you can see from just the kitchen island standpoint, there are 6 different conversational areas to move around to: the island, the kitchen table, the conversation area off the island near the wine fridge, the great room, the back patio off the great room in front of the exterior fireplace, and the outdoor patio off of the kitchen table. Now that’s a lot of entertaining space! We wanted these important spaces to feel extra roomy so we gave them 12′ ceilings. The entry drops down to 10 feet and continues with 10 feet through the rest of the home.”

“A home built by Killowen Construction was our source of inspiration for our entrance wall.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“We wanted a large entry to show off art and set the style for the rest of the home. We wanted to use this large rug by McGee & Co so there was no use wasting precious installation dollars on setting flooring in a herringbone pattern or something special when we wanted the rug to be the focus against the soft playful painted brick wall. The sconces were an immediate YES to our plan – We love this line for Hudson Valley and placing such a tall vertical mirror drew your eye up to the Currey and Co Chandelier. The wood tone of this chandelier was the basis for the hardwood and stains throughout the home.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“Symmetry. Symmetry. Can you ever get enough? Visually we knew this room would have so much going on with the surrounding seating and 36 linear feet of sliding glass doors that we wanted to keep the eye focused right in the middle of the room, but keep it simple. There’s so many different ways to trim out a fireplace and looks you can create with mantle, hearth and stone looks but we went with a clean stucco finish and tapered the top in framing for a fresh open look. The last thing we wanted was a heavy focal point. We used a fiberglass mesh to reinforce it from cracking. We don’t miss the mantle one bit because the eye goes directly to the open stained shelving backed by vertical shiplap.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.
Fireplace: Stucco in Classic Gray OC-23 by Benjamin Moore.
Quartz Hearth: Pental Blue Savoie Honed 3cm.

“Classically styled, we used so many different looks to get a curated feeling. Books, vases, baskets, wicker, greenery, decorative wood objects, ceramic pottery, brass bins and the Visual Comfort sconces just add the right brite look we wanted.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.
“We wanted to keep it consistent through the home so we played off of two colors keeping it calm and airy.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“A 14 foot island is nothing to mess around with. That’s a long run to design a kitchen around so the eye doesn’t get bored. We opted for a simple straight run even though there’s an invisible seam behind the sink because our perimeter is nothing but plain.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“Baking up your favorite desert and need the exact amount of water in a flash? Ask Alexa! It’s not only a touch faucet, it’s voice activated. Just say “Alexa, tell Delta 2 cups of water” and out comes 2 cups of water. Your alexa needs to be close in proximity but makes measuring so fast and convenient!” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.
Kitchen Faucet: Delta Cassidy Touch with Voice IQ Module IQ91977-CZ-DST.
“This kitchen has not one, but two pot fillers. Can you see where the 2nd one is? Yep for our 4-legged friends. Normally a pot filler fills pots quickly with a lot of output but we added a flow regulator so the only splashes this dog feeding station makes is from happy lapping up of water in their bowl!” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“Who says the Butler’s Kitchen has to be smaller than the real kitchen? We say it should be larger! Make all your messes in here! This is the mixing room, the rolling out of cinnamon rolls room and the room to rummage for healthy snacks! My family would have quarantined here teaching all my kids how to make our favorite family recipes. All this room needs is Grandpa’s Heirloom Butcher Block Island he made Grandma 60 years ago here in the middle. This is the prettiest room, trimmed from wall to wall, ceiling to floor in vertical 8” shiplap. Still keeping that Modern Classic vibe in check, we chose a floor tile traditional in style with its traditional parquet look and neutral color. It’s 24×24 size is so affordable for the look and was absolutely beautiful with every color of painted cabinetry we paired with it. In the end we kept the cabinets cohesive with the interior doors and paired a quartz that blended right into the cabinetry. And let’s chat about the full swing butler’s door from the main Kitchen into the Butler’s Kitchen. I mean, don’t we all want one? They let you go in and out so easily while holding your precious baked goods. We know that a real chef needs lots and lots of refrigerator space. Most people have a 2nd freezer in their garage so we deliberately made our interior freezer space footprint smaller to make a larger refrigerator impact. The butler’s kitchen has a full glass refrigerator to show off your cakes and organic fruits and vegetables– you know, all the pretty refrigerator items.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.
Refrigerator: Sub-Zero 36″ Classic Refrigerator with Glass Door.
Cabinet color: Gray 2121-10 by Benjamin Moore (same as interior doors).

“We searched for a floor tile and a pattern on the walls that wouldn’t compete for attention in this beautiful powder bathroom. The Bedrosians Blomma was the answer with her soft lines that didn’t fight with the lines in the trimwork. We loved the vertical lines in these Hudson Valley Brookville Pendants that played off the vertical lines in the trimwork.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“We knew that a standard vaulted ceiling wasn’t going to be enough of a visual impact in this stunning master bedroom ceiling so we framed for a 24” high coffered ceiling then vaulted it. The trimwork is art, keeping behind the bed and the ceiling classic and visual. The furniture is a blend of Alice Lane and McGee & Co with accessories from Feather and Twine Home in Boise, Idaho. Keeping the color palette neutral and soft with black accents on the nightstands, chandelier and barn door was just the right movement for the eye. Oh, that barn door! Love!!! Yes, it’s pretty much the most beautiful master in the world.” – Liz Amar for Biltmore Co.

“Our Guest Suite can be shut off from the rest of the home to give your guests the privacy they want. Having their own exterior door allows them to come and go as they wish without being a burden.
