Designer Brent Gibson collaborated with Christopher Lee & Company Fine Homes in developing this Tuscan-style home in Nichols Hills, Oklahoma, USA. With imported materials from Italy, Mexico, and Spain, the residence was custom built to compliment the historical aesthetics found throughout the Mediterranean region, along with influences from the Spanish.
Custom forged iron gates lead the way towards the interiors, which feature a rustic, sun-baked look. “To emphasize the connection of the region with the land, the paint is heavily earthy with unpretentious hues of a Tuscan hillside,” the designer said.
A stairway at the core of the house provides access to the upper levels. Aesthetically, this element is enriched by ceramic tiles saved from a Spanish mission in Mexico. All iron work is custom hand forged with beeswax finish.
In the kitchen, a hand-carved limestone vent hood above the appliances acts as the focal point of the interior. The study is designed and built using Clear Alder wood, which has less knots in its structure. The home library is an elegant refuge for the inhabitants of this classic-style Oklahoma residence.
