Honoree: Charles Cudd
DeNovo, LLC, Plymouth
Charles Cudd DeNovo was commissioned to build a luxury home in Edina; the result is a stately structure that looks like it was built in another era. The classic architecture is enhanced by the stone exterior. The homeowners chose Martha O’Hara Interiors, a design firm based in St. Louis Park, to come up with elements to enhance the custom millwork and cabinetry and large bay windows. The rooms are dominated by light, muted colors, but punctuated with dark accents. The open kitchen is primarily white, but is accented by the dark brown countertop of the enormous center island. And dark brown floor-to-ceiling vanities provide a counterpoint to the light marble floors and sunny windows in the master bath.
