The design focus, materials, amenities and color scheme were also influenced by
the fact that both Molly Tilyou and Brad Tilyou work in real estate: Molly is a Real-tor,
Brad is a licensed general contractor and area superintendent for Mungo Homes.
“Our inspiration came from contemporary farmhouse design, but we always like
to add a touch of ‘Tilyou,’ creating playful features that set our home apart and make
us feel excited to enjoy our home daily,” Tilyou says.
As an aspect of this approach, they added a charging station in the appliance eleva-tion
as a place to drop off phones, tablets and computers when returning from work.
“Planning for lifestyle-related features like that were the most fun in designing our
home and kitchen,” Tilyou adds.
