Inside this inspirational custom built home model, we were inspired by two rooms:  the spa-like monochromatic white master bathroom was dreamy, and this Modern Nantucket-Style Farmhouse Kitchen with Gray Cabinets. The home’s design team said the kitchen was a favorite interior designed room. Architectural photographers specializing in home photography, one extra perk of our rewarding job, while inside each home builder client’s newest built homes, is in turn we often receive a first look at a new home building trend. Whether it be a stylish trendy kitchen, or any other, never seen before, home design element, color, or architectural detail. We receive the luxury of photographing inside each luxurious house, never knowing what we’ll find. Inside each home, provides an opportunity to discover a new home decorating idea or latest in today’s home building styles & trends.

According to the builder, everyone (including us the Chicago luxury home photographers of the house) loves the unexpected, light gray cabinet’s painted color. These photos of the kitchen, family room, and breakfast nook are within the heart of the home’s entertaining space inside this Chicago suburban model home. The builder’s model design team decided to go bold selecting a memorable cabinet color within this showcase home. The model home’s light gray kitchen theme is viewed by hundreds of homebuyers walking through open houses of the home per week, many who compliment the kitchen’s style.









For this Nantucket-style farmhouse kitchen design, the designer palette is white and light gray. The neutral gray painted cabinetry and lighter gray walls color choices works within this floorplan. The wooden décor accents, connecting rooms sunshine beams provide for a sun-filled room with vaulted ceilings, open concept living, and the southern exposure kitchen. The classic cabinetry doors style paired with gray cabinet paint colors is elegantly contrasted with the bright, white quartz countertops and large center island. This custom, trend setting gray painted cabinets was inspiring within the home’s open concept kitchen floorplan. The kitchen room’s design also featured luxury painted woodwork and an abundance of upgraded cabinetry. Attached to the large open kitchen are two attached rooms the sun-filled breakfast nook with rich wooden beams, and the coffered ceiling, gorgeous family room with fireplace and built-ins. Upstairs inside the model is the builder’s design team who offers options, samples, and are a part of the home building process creating unique attributes for each home within the 56 home development, so no two homes ever feel the same.

The Berteau Development is a distinctive community within Elmhurst. Recently named by Crain’s Chicago Business and confirmed by Nitti Development Elmhurst is a new hub for million dollar homes, with new construction, redevelopment & downtown teardowns flourishing.  The epicenter of the Elmhurst millionaire’s hub is Berteau Development.  Berteau is a 12-acre, new residential home development located on the original parcel of land where the former Elmhurst Memorial Hospital stood.  This land in Chicago west suburban Elmhurst suburb is located off of Berteau Street, on Joanne Way and located in between Schiller Street and Third Streets in Elmhurst.  The hospital’s former location today because one highly sought after location and a one-of-a-kind building location in the area for a residential home development located near downtown.  Ideally located within proximity of convenience, and blocks away from the popular downtown section of the City of Elmhurst is a big plus.








Upon Nitti Development booking Miller + Miller Photography for the custom home photo shoot, we asked the builder a few photo questions about the model home and the interior and exterior house shoot. The design team provided information about the home and a few details about the room’s high-end finishes and design elements. Ensuring we are organized photographers and have booked enough time for the shoot, we always ask our clients to provide each unique project’s shoot details as a list ahead of time, and noting room shots.  This list is used as a reference on evaluate our time needed in each room, as well as a guide to allocating ample time for photographing the noted interior and exterior home photo shot requests.

When we arrived for the Chicago residential home photography shoot, we began first with a quick tour of the model house, to get organized for photos, and review the luxury home before the home’s photography shoot started.
