The custom-built home in Cedar Falls fulfills all of the homeowner’s requests: An open floor plan, streamlined and contemporary accents, a neat-as-a-pin appearance — and just a hint of sparkle.

“I was hoping it was going to be good, and it turned out even better than I dreamed,” says the homeowner, praising Concept to Creation builders for their design, workmanship and attention to detail.

Guests step onto an elegant mosaic tile design inside the front entry, which segues into silky smooth bamboo flooring throughout the main floor.

Tres ceilings throughout the home have concealed chromatherapy lighting. In the open living space, scrolled wallpaper is displayed in a series of permanent molded frames on the wall, providing a focal point. A white leather sectional dominates the space and other contemporary furnishings are sleek but comfortable.

Quartz countertops glitter with hints of silver in the kitchen, including the island which seats three. Three pendants dangle overhead. Custom cabinets and the tile and glass backsplash are both practical and attractive.

There are also two master suites, one on the main floor with a large,multi-jet spray, and a second in the lower level for the homeowner’s parents.
