HGTV Magazine: This Homeowner Thought of Everything
From wowza patterns on the walls to pretty knobs in the bathroom, no detail was overlooked–truly awesome.
When Jessica and Kyle Tompane lucked into their dream location for a home—a property in Coronado, CA, next door to their best friends—they set out to build a fantasy house to match. As a designer, Jessica had done her fair share of dreaming. “I had all this pent-up energy, like, I want to use all the pretty things! ” she says. “With a brand-new house, we had the opportunity to make it uniquely us with lots of details.” Topping her list: graphic tile, creative built-ins, and wallpaper put up in unexpected ways. For furniture, she picked simple shapes and cozy textures, then went all-in on ooh-where’d-youget- that accessories, creating a welcoming place to hang out with their daughter and, of course, their nearby pals. In the Tompane house, it really is all about the small stuff.
