There is no denying my love for a good Before and After story. This one is no exception.
My clients came to me after purchasing the waterfront home for the beautiful River view, they loved the lot, location and size of the home. They were not quite as impressed with most of the interior layout, the windows, the Bathroom, the Kitchen and the complete lack of architectural details in the house.
Let’s just say they were prepared for a Major renovation.
It helps to understand that my clients we completely open to any ideas I had for making changes to the house. There were some absolute must-do items on their to-do list which would require reconfiguring the floor plan and some major reworking things like ceilings and flooring. The Master Bathroom was definitely a high priority on the to-do list. The original plan had two separate areas – his with shower and hers with a shower and a tub between both. The bathroom was divided from the Master Bedroom by a hall visible from the Living Room. Passing through the hall you would come to another hallway with closets on each side.
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.
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.
Bedroom Bliss can be found, if you have the right pieces.
Finding THE perfect piece of furniture is a great way to start a room. Looking for some ideas for beds, here is a small collection of some of my favorites right now. Each of them is a statement piece and can work with almost any style. I happen to be partial to poster beds they have great presence and set the tone for the rest of the room.
