French-inspired architecture and Moroccan motifs coalesce to give a newly built Michigan home a worldly sensibility. Luxurious finishes and layers of pattern reflect the vision of these homeowners who turned to Corey Damen Jenkins & Associates to create something tailored with neoclassical hallmarks. The firm meticulously designed all the custom millwork and moldings to introduce the feeling of a French salon. The detailed craftsmanship belies the age of the home, fooling visitors into thinking it is much older than it is. Adding to the Parisian flair is a recurring color scheme of black and white mixed with Bohemian-themed fabrics, saturated colors, bold artworks, and unique textile combinations. Tile, a pillar of Eastern design, also plays a big visual role as seen with the kitchen island, principal bath, and sunroom.
