Traditional Eclectic. Wayzata, Minnesota.


About the Project

These homeowners purchased this 1947 Wayzata home (originally built by architect Edwin Lundie) and enlisted Brandi to help them take it from simple to extravagant. Using the existing footprint of the home, almost every space was aesthetically impacted with new decor and design features, creating a traditional-eclectic vibe.

The living room walls are paneled with distinctive moulding, and sheer drapery accents the Chesterfield sofa and Missoni pillows. The art pieces and rug tie the room together, and the piano helps define this room as a formal space for cocktail parties and entertaining. The dining area features bold black wall coverings, nicely contrasted by white chairs and an updated vintage hutch. Notable deep pink wall cov-erings bring a modern flair to the kitchen, where new lighting shines over the barnwood and chrome table.

The master bedroom features a brilliant trio of chandeliers hung from the white wood vaulted ceiling and a dramatic navy blue ultra-suede wall covering. Offering even more intrigue, the TV above the fireplace is hidden behind a two-way mirror. The master bath was updated with new sconces and a vibrant green paneled wall covering. And the homeowner’s daughter is thrilled with her new bedroom featuring a dog-patterned wall covering, touches of pink, and a bed that was repurposed and smartly lacquered a dark gray.

The overall effect of the home is dramatic yet playful, with eclectic features catching your eye from every direction.
