We were hired by the clients to coordinate the finishes, fixtures, furniture and design elements for their massive whole house remodel in the gated Glen Oaks community located in the city of West Des Moines. Spanning multiple years, the project touched nearly every room in the 10,000 square foot residence.
Our vision was to create a modern home inspired by the traditional architecture of the home. We used a neutral palette with a variety of rich textures such as wool, grasscloth, mohair, and linen and added mixed metallics, like oil-rubbed bronze, antiqued brass, and polished nickel, for an eclectic feel.
R. Cartwright supplied the furniture, rugs, lighting, artwork and accessories throughout the home. For a closer look at other projects completed with this client, please see our Guest House portfolio.Photography by Heidi Zeiger

Filled with Southern charm and classic detailing, this Ankeny home combines country-chic elements with sophisticated fabrics and finishes. R. Cartwright Design consulted with the owners of this new-build home from the beginning of their project – providing finish and paint selections, trim recommendations, flooring, lighting and ideas for architectural detailing. We mixed new furnishings, weathered finishes, and vintage and new accessories to give the home a layered and collected feel that is timeless in its design.Photography by Heidi Zeiger

After helping these clients with the design of their pool house, R. Cartwright Design worked on the construction and design of this stylish and modern guesthouse. With an open space plan in the main living area, two private bedroom suites and a beautiful outdoor living space with water features, our designers developed a design concept to create flow throughout the public and private spaces that connects both to the home’s natural surroundings. The final design emphasizes texture, layered textiles, earthy colors, and comfortable furnishings ideal for lounging with a glass of wine.Photography by Heidi Zeiger
