Who 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.
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.
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.
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.
