Carlton Landing Home

Carlton Landing, OK

Carlton Landing is a new urbanist town along Lake Eufaula in Oklahoma.   Town Founder Grant Humphreys understood the exterior, as well as the interiors, of his own family home and first of the first completed could set the stage for the emerging community. The heart of any house – especially one in the heartland of America – is the kitchen. The large island accommodates serious cooking, casual entertaining and space for the five children to spread out for homework. A cohesive flow of colors, textures and materials runs throughout the home.  The side entry is truly a double-duty foyer with a painting by an Oklahoma artist hung on axis and to the right an every-changing collection of children’s art above a simple black bench.  The overriding spirit is openhearted and embracing from the front door to the gracious living and dining area to the kids’ bunk rooms.
