Vedere is an Italian word meaning “to see, look at; meet, consult; find out, and grasp.” It is the root of the word vista, which means “a large and beautiful view of an area, or a number of things that may be possible in the future.” Marrying these concepts with precision and finesse is Vedere Construction.
Traditionally, builders and designers are at odds, with competing goals and priori-ties. Vedere, however, not only values involvement, it seeks it. Owners Jon Lyon and James Brown execute your design plans with passion, transforming your home into the space you’ve dreamed of.
Vedere joined forces with Alinda Morris Design to transform a Lakewood home for a busy family. The couple and their daughters moved into the neighborhood several years ago. The home wasn’t their taste, but they loved the neighbors and sense of community, and hired Morris to spearhead a comprehensive remodel.
The family’s goal was to update and maximize the visual impact while adding storage. This was balanced with the desire to create special, cozy areas for family time that were fresh and stylish, and infinitely livable.
The family was encouraged to celebrate the home’s ceiling height with custom wall coverings. The texture created a sophisticated yet child-friendly family room. The fireplace surround was dressed up with millwork, mantel and crown molding. The handwoven grass wallpaper was used again in the new breakfast nook to complement the banquette, and in the master bath to add warmth to tile and glass.
The master bath is a showpiece, beginning with new vanity and cabinetry. A large tile shower with frameless glass door and a soaking tub surrounded by beautiful stacked stone provide a serene feeling.
Crown molding and built-in bookcases now frame the master suite to add a custom touch and functionality. “That’s what I love about interior design—you can change the way people function in their space,” says Alinda Morris.
