Edmond Home Designed by Brent Gibson, Built by Adams Kirby Homes

Amber McCullough loves every aspect of her four-bedroom, 3.5-bath home in northeast Edmond, as well she should!

Amber, an interior designer, collaborated with the Brent Gibson Classic Home Design ( team on the home’s floor plan. She started by providing the architecture team with a sketch she created on her iPad, then showed them some of the design elements she wanted to see incorporated.

The home features a study, media and sitting area. Special details include a marble fireplace surround, a concrete Native Trails bathtub, Brizo plumbing fixtures and custom lighting.

The outdoor living space features phantom screens, a pool and even a putting green for backyard entertaining. Phantom screens are retractable rather than fixed, hinged or sliding; instead, they retract into the wall or a recess, where they can be hidden from view.

While the home features high-end finishes throughout, Amber says her end goal was to create a comfortable and welcoming environment for family and friends. For example, two kitchen islands make socializing easy during food preparation.

Amber didn’t have to look far to find a custom builder, either. Amber is the exclusive interior designer for Adams Kirby Homes (, a family-owned boutique custom home builder based out of Edmond founded in 2005. She is also the daughter of Adams Kirby Homes builder Rick Adams and his other daughter, Michelle Kirby, also a builder.

“Adams Kirby Homes build quality, luxury homes, where attention to detail is their top priority,” Amber said. “We keep the business small so that we are able to maintain a high standard of home building, giving each customer exactly what they deserve and want when building their custom home.”

In addition to serving as AKH's interior designer, Amber runs her own design business, Amber McCullough Design (Instagram @ambermcculloughdesign).

For anyone thinking of working with an architect and/or custom builder to build their next home, Amber advises people to first educate themselves on design trends, but not necessarily to copy them.

“Stay true to yourself! Let trends inspire or push you, but don’t let that dictate how you want your home to look and feel overall. What makes interior design work so special is that it allows you to keep creating, not just repeating the same look or design over and over—that would be boring! I love to mix different styles, materials and finishes in each of my designs.”

Many people will also find it advantageous to work with an independent architect who will truly listen to them, as well as provide valuable advice base.

“We have worked with Brent and his team for a long time,” Amber notes. “He is really great at listening to what the customer wants in a floor plan and giving them a really functional and beautiful floor plan layout and exterior elevation!

"Brent has an amazing gift and is very talented. And he draws his initial concept drawings by hand, which shows that he is a true artist as opposed to someone whose work is largely based on computer drafting programs. His staff then generates the final plans on the computer. Clients are provided with color 3D renderings of the final plans.

Brent Gibson Classic Home Design

Founder/owner/architect Brent Gibson, whose work has been described as “classic” and “timeless,” has been designing custom homes for over 35 years. He came to Edmond in 1990 from Weatherford, where he had been active in design and construction since 1978. He has an extensive background in home construction, which gives his firm a leading edge in designing and understanding home construction.

When launching his firm in the economically challenged 1990s, Edmond was starting to see a growth in housing. At the time, no one was specializing in class home design based on historically proven architecture—a void he filled by starting a Country French and English design movement. Before long, the style took off and quickly became all the rage in home design.

Today, Brent’s team includes daughter Natalie Gibson-Francis, the firm’s new-home consultant. Natalie’s prior work experiences are in the areas of construction loan lending and cabinet design.

Homes designed by Brent Gibson Classic Home Design can be seen in the newer sections of Nichols Hills, in Edmond's Oak Tree and Iron Horse Ranch Estates, among many others, and in northwest Oklahoma City's Muirfield Village, just-underway Camden Park and other neighborhoods where Gibson is the sole designer.

Brent’s clientele list includes several celebrities, including Toby Keith, pro golfers Bob Tway and Scott Verplank, and Oklahoma State Cowboys head football coach Mike Gundy.

Brent Gibson Classic Home Design is located at 415 West 15th St., Edmond. To schedule a consultation, call 405.340.1980.
