  • "Dwelling: Every Little Thing
    Ed and Katie Dudensing looked at houses all over East Sacramento before they zeroed in on one that felt right. They liked the exterior and really warmed up to the large gathering spaces inside. But the interior? Not so hot. The neon colors splashed across walls accented with flashy supercontemporary fixtures just didn’t cut it. Turns out, they had an ace up their sleeves. Sacramento interior designer Jill Dudensing is Ed’s sister. “The fact that Jill was going to design it was part of the decision to buy the house,” Ed says. “We knew the bones were good, and we knew we had someone who could do this.” Do what? As Jill says: “Change every little tiny thing in every room.”

    That’s a whole lot of changing: 4,200 square feet on the first two floors and 1,800 square feet in the basement. After boatloads of paint (Jill custom-mixed all the colors), truckloads of stone, scores of hand-picked furnishings and art pieces, dozens of French and Italian light fixtures, and four to five months of work by Carmichael contractor Dave Evans of EVCO Construction, the home is as sleek and put together as a runway model. “Jill’s a natural,” Ed says. “The thing I really like about the house is that it’s different. It’s distinctive. It has utility, and I’m utility-driven, but it’s also aesthetically pleasing and uncluttered. It was a good combination, the way Jill designs and the way we live.”
