New Build Home Interior
New build home interior design is always an exciting challenge. In this new construction home on Orchid Island, Jill Shevlin Design worked with architects and contractors to design a bright and beautiful home for her clients from New York. What started as a blank canvas turned into a welcoming and sunny oasis.
The home’s entryway boasts a beautiful hand-painted stria paint technique, giving the walls a two-toned dimensional effect. The entry leads into the living room with magnificent floor-to-ceiling views of the newly built pool and grassy golf course. The view makes the living room feel significantly larger and connects it to the outdoor space.
The interior design of the living room leans into crisp whites and neutrals with pops of blue for a beachy and light sensation. The living room features a statement chandelier, contemporary marble slab fireplace, and built-in bookcases decorated with souvenirs the owners collected throughout their world travels. While the room breathes casual sophistication, it also has several details for care-free living, like indoor-outdoor fabric used throughout and an easy-to-clean natural fiber area rug.
In the kitchen, pops of color bring energy into the light-filled space. White cabinets are matched with leathered quartzite countertops and a fun glass tile backsplash with blue accents. The window-surrounded breakfast nook is home to four blue rattan chairs that sit below an amazing rough-cut crystal drum light fixture.
In the master suite, Jill created a simple sanctuary for the owners of the new build home. The interior design featured two-tone white paint stripes for a subtle sheen, restyled and reupholstered chairs from the previous home, and dual shades in white and blue.
Moving into the master bathroom is a glass-mosaiced double entry shower, modern tub, and separate his-and-hers vanity areas. The new master suite continues the neutral color scheme of the rest of the house, creating an overall inviting and bright space throughout for the owners and guests alike.
