We all know and love the amazing work that St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does for childhood cancer, especially when they raise money with the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. This year, they are giving away their biggest house yet! Located in a gated community called The Gallery in Reunion in Commerce City, Colorado, this 3400 square feet, four bedroom, two and a half bath mansion (part of the Overlook collection, named Boulderado) donated by Oakwood Homes is valued at $750,000, and it’s easy to see why once you step inside. The Front Door visited this beauty and spoke to Barb Chandler, the interior designer that decorated the home with furnishings and accents that were provided by Furniture Row. Below, see the photos of each spectacular room in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home!
As you approach the home, the front porch brings southern charm mixed with contemporary design. Barb Chandler partnered the Brookstone Patio Set with the Riviera Links Rug in a trendy mustard color, and Morrocan Accent Pillows. The shrubbery, candles, and mini pumpkins create a warm and welcoming environment for this outdoor space.
The entryway of every home is the first thing that guests see when they come to visit, and this foyer doesn’t disappoint. The Mahogany 4 Drawer Accent Table partners with woven baskets in washed gray, while a mirror opens up the space, and interesting home accents such as a metallic pumpkin, rectangular vase, and an Edison-style Bell Jar Lamp give this area visual interest.
The first room on the right is the home office. This country-inspired space showcases cottage chic furniture including the Hancock Park Collection (desk, credenza with hutch, desk chair, and file cabinet with hutch), and a 1-Drawer Accent Table. We love the pop of cheerful color with the customized yellow Eliza Chairs, and the gray Antiquity Rug brings weathered elegance to the work area. Faceted Candleholders, farmhouse trays from Magnolia Home, and the Brody Lamp make this room the ideal spot to get work done.

One of the best parts of the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home is the open layout. As you walk into the house, the great room feels cohesive, maintaining a consistent theme.
“The look and feel of this home is very modern farmhouse,” says Barb Chandler.
There is a lot of natural sunlight, and we love the liveable mood to the main floor. Furniture Row really made this home feel like home.

The dining space separates the great room and the kitchen, and the fashionable furnishings are casual yet sophisticated.
“This space is great because it has multiple functions,” Chandler says. “Most families don’t need a formal dining room, but this room can be dressed up or dressed down. I can imagine kids doing homework, parents having guests over for refreshments, or a holiday dinner party happening on this table.”
The kitchen is large, bright, and contemporary with gray cabinets, white marble countertops, a large center island, and stainless steel appliances. Two large windows bring a lot of natural light into the space, making it the ideal place for family and friends to gather.
The backyard backs up to a greenbelt, giving the home some privacy that is rarely seen in newly constructed homes. The Valencia Patio Set is perfect for this outdoor space, and we love that the area is covered.

As you can see, Oakwood Homes utilized the entire space in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home. An upstairs loft space complete with wet bar (photographed above), and a reading nook (photographed below) give the whole family room to entertain, relax, and enjoy beautiful Denver.
“This is one of my favorite chairs that we carry,” Chandler tells the Front Door. It tilts, swivels, and the fabric is such a versatile color and trendy pattern.”
The master bedroom epitomizes whimsical romance. Carrying the washed wood tones from downstairs, the Wethersfield Bedroom Set sets a relaxing tone. Hints of aqua blue are seen throughout with the Napa Suzani Rug, wall art, pillows, vases, and other accents. Texture is a huge design element with tufted upholstery such as the Slipper Accent Chair, furry linens, the brushed metal of the Chatham Lamps, and the super-soft St. Germain Chaise Lounge.
The guest bedroom brings a rustic flair to the home with masculine accents inspired by nature and hints of industrial style with the Watson Round Lamp and metal Bryant Park Bed. The color palette is clean with the Bonn Dresser Set in washed white, the Bindi Rug in pewter gray, and blues mixed with neutral linens and upholstered furnishings. Two Grant Cube Ottomans with nailhead trim create an instant window seat, perfect for when friends and family come to stay the night and need a place to set suitcases or to wind down before bed.
This adorable little girl bedroom is one of our favorite rooms in the Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home. Pretty in pink, this space features a Sparkle Shag Rose Quartz Rug, the Madison Bedroom Collection, the Soren Glass Owl Lamp, and the Cecilia Table Lamp. Barb combined gold highlights, playful accents, and a large feminine hanging mural on one wall to make this space truly shine.
The final bedroom is fit for any little boy looking for adventure. The trendy Stoney Creek Bedroom Set is versatile for any style of decor, and the Luke Dark Gray Antique Lamp lights up to shine on all of a child’s favorite accessories. The Antelope Canyon Framed Print beside the beds and the Mountain Ranger Wall Art near the desk are the final touches to this room. The cool part about this space, as well as the little girl’s room, is that they both open to the third outdoor space, an upstairs balcony.
The final space in the home is the upstairs balcony, which is accessed from two of the bedrooms. The Castilla Patio Set provides space to relax and enjoy time with friends and family. The Commerce City St. Jude Dream Home is so impressive, that you really need to see it in person to get the full experience.
