If you have been following our other social media outlets, you may have seen a few photos we shared from the 2013 Grand Rapids Design Home Gala.  It was a beautiful evening filled with delicious food, good company, and a picturesque setting, not to mention the proceeds benefitting a worthy cause.  And to beat the band (figuratively speaking, of course), we had mood music provided by the talented Brian Vander Ark, setting the tone for an evening of relaxation in the context of the Heartsworth, a Craftsman-inspired design with a gracious floor plan, transitional decor and modern amenities.

A special thanks to Grand Rapids Magazine for including Visbeen Architects in the Design Home for a sixth time.  Thanks to Infiniti Custom Homes and the many partners involved in bringing this design to life, with pizazz.  What a spectacular final product!  

Want to see the entire home in all it's glory?  A dazzling pictorial spread taking us on a tour of the finished Heartsworth will be featured in an upcoming issue of Grand Rapids Magazine, so stay tuned!  For now?  A few fun photos from the party...
