EASY & ELEGANT SPACES
This compact living area remodel started with the fireplace, which was completely streamlined with tan and chocolate travertine tiles and given a Sparkfire insert with glass pebbles. Floors are mahogany planks, with custom area rugs in both dining and living areas for accent and comfort. Wood shutters control the intense afternoon sun on this side of the room. The color palate is gold, cream, and chocolate with green accents.
The client's art collection is highlighted here. Polished nickel sconces and a pendant fixture were added for extra lighting.
We eliminated a large entertainment center in favor of a more compact system that was relocated to another room. Speakers were installed in this room for audio and the tv. To update the fireplace, red brick was replaced with strip porcelain tiles in pastel colors. Glass crystals were added to the firebox, paired with a mirrored fender in the back that doubles the effect of the glass. A new sectional and storage ottoman, and custom area rug were added. Existing side chairs were recovered.
Formal Living Room
This living room was completely refurbished, beginning with new furnishings and lighting, a gray grasscloth wallpaper on the fireplace wall, a custom area rug and new furnishings. To support a trio of bronzes on the left, custom pedestals were designed with mirrored tops.
We changed the gas log fireplace by replacing the logs with glass crystals. The fireplace is open on three sides to provide warmth for both the living area, sitting area and dining room.
The low ceiling in this room was vaulted to match the great room ceiling downstairs. A comfy padded headboard is comfortable for reading in bed. The custom bedding was an unfussy combination of comforter, pillow shams and a classy bolster pillow that go together in 60 seconds.
This airy dining room in a Florida gulf coast home reflects the colors of the water outside. Soft blue walls and green and white fabric dining chairs are cool and refreshing. Double mirrors on the wall reflect light and emphasize the height of the ceiling.
This spacious master is just off the pool area in this Florida gulf home. the view out the windows of the sitting area is of the canal and the ocean beyond. It's a great place to relax on the phone or with a book and to gaze at the scene outside.
This patio got a quick update with new furnishings, custom Sunbrella cushions, plants and an outdoor area rug to cozy things up.
This Spanish bungalow wraps around an interior patio. The space was spruced up with recovered chairs, and a custom tile mural was added with tiles that were leftover from a bath and kitchen remodel.
