Hallway Makeover

Marble Meets Coastal Casual in a Hallway Makeover

Transformation of a marble Hallway Renovation by Interior Designer Jill Shevlin, Marble Hallway, Casual meets MarbleWho says coastal has to be palm trees and fish?  How about birds and seashells instead.  To get this Traditional yet Casual look I just mixed it all up and created a coastal look with modern elements.   Mahogany furniture mixed with casual cane and a light colored traditional runner on a cream polished marble backdrop. 

I can hardly believe how long it’s been since we wrapped this Jupiter Island Renovation project up. The images from the project have been among some of my most well received and it is still one of my favorite projects.  Although each project I have worked on is like a child of mine and picking a favorite is difficult, I love all of them, each for different reasons. 

Fast forward to today and I am back working on on this house again.  This time getting to do what we didn’t do the first time around, the Kitchen and Master Bath.  Stay tuned to see how they turn out.  Still in the planning phase at the moment, but as per far too often a fast-paced project with a deadline quickly approaching!

If you take a look at the before photo below, you can see a cupid style sconce.  Yup – that’s about what the whole place looked like when we started.

Sourcing Outdoor Seating for my California Project

The final phases of my California job are well underway and one of the last few items on my to-find list is a cool seating group for an upper-level terrace that is being built.

Arteriors Chair

The area where the terrace is located is above the backyard up a slight hill.  The area that has been cleared and readied for a small seating area to take advantage of the views from above.  The platform for the terrace is small, just 13 x 13 and the furniture needs to be weather resistant, lightweight and we are looking to create a fun little spot to hang out.  These are a few of the selections I sent for my client to take a look at.

I love the retro vibe of this Design Within Reach Chair.  It reminds me of the old strap furniture we had when I was a kid, but with a much cooler look.

I just think of Hawaii when I look at these cool chairs from One Kings Lane.  Maybe it’s the fabric, but I can hear Don Ho singing….

Teak and woven resin are a great combo for these loungers from One Kings Lane.

Home Renovation – Fireplace

Fireplace Make Over

When my clients first brought me on a tour through the new home they purchased we all agreed on many items on the renovation To-Do List.  I was a little blown away that they were fine with the existing fireplace while I had a strong opinion to the contrary from the moment I saw the original fireplace.

As is the case with home renovations, the after photo looks so amazing it is hard to imagine the room ever looking any other way.  Truth is it takes a good long time to get to the finished product.

Tub Round Up

Have you seen any good tubs lately?  

I’ve been working on several new construction projects lately as well as a few remodels.   Each new project starts with the same items to select list.  Critical for every project is selecting plumbing fixtures.  These days most people are looking for freestanding bathtubs for their Master Baths.  The choices are unlimited from size to shape to color to the material.  Everything you can imagine is available now.

On the Hunt – Powder Room Sinks

 

The Cuzco Vanity in Carrara Marble from Native Trails is a great design for any style. 

 The HURST WIDE CONSOLE SINK from Rejuvenation is definitely more formal, but a great look and easy to dress up  or down

The 36″ AMORA BATHROOM VANITY CABINET BASE from Ronbow is completely different from most vanities, available in brilliant blue or a wood tone.  

And finally, and probably my favorite is the Plaid Vanity from J.Tribble.  I know it doesn’t look like much here, but the options on this beauty are Endless!  

 

Fireplace Make Over – Simple & White is Oh So Right

Simple is the most difficult design decision to go with.  I think we all have a constant battle within to always want to do more, add that one more thing that will finally complete the look.

But the truth is like Van Der Rohe said,  Less is More!  Simple is So Right – So Often.

This was a Major home renovation I did a few years ago in Windsor.  The entire project Before was exactly the opposite of less is more!
