Olga and Web West joined in early on the process for their customized Budleigh neighborhood home. With the help of Dixon Kirby, they were able to make it work for their family, especially two daughters Liliana, 15, and Lucia, 11. “The house was partially framed. We had the opportunity to revise the floor plan to add the downstairs office and playroom,” says Olga West.

For the home’s design, the family partnered with Ashley Thompson of Dixon Kirby and interior designer Brittany Roux at Design Lines, who recently founded RouxMacNeill Studio. Roux branched out on her own with partner Robert MacNeill in 2o17. She says she loved collaborating with the homeowners to fit their personal style and needs. “We curated a collection of art and accessories that felt personal, meaningful, and added soul to the space,” she says. Olga West agrees, and says the couple couldn’t be happier with the home, which includes outdoor living, an expansive gameroom, and comfortable dining spaces. “We knew we wanted a combination of contemporary and traditional. More than anything, we wanted the house to feel like a home and not a museum. Ashley and Brittany were instrumental in helping us achieve that goal.” —Catherine Currin
