This home remodel reveals the current direction for many area homes: redesigning embellished Tuscan, Tommy Bahama, and stuck in the 90s’ homes into more open spaces with lighter, softer colors. Combining a relaxed cottage/farmhouse motif with elements of European flair compliments the locale and reflects the homeowners’ lifestyle. Lime washed oak floors and light grey walls set the stage, while grass cloth accents and soft sea glass colors of blue and green add an innuendo of coastal.
In the great room, the built-in bookcase was transformed from dark mahogany to a distressed painted finish to match the interior. Architectural beams were added to the sky light tray to frame the space and draw your eye to the clerestory windows. Custom cabinetry with deep drawers and the spacious kitchen island inset with soft blue tinged granite increase functionality extended into the original living space. Both master and guest bathrooms were remade with mosaic inlays, modern hardware, and timeless accents to provide a luxurious hotel spa ambiance. The bedrooms display a gentler practicality without compromising on design. Signature drop pendants as well as a tongue-in-groove ceiling and bone inlaid nightstands in the master intensify the visual appeal, while the continuation of plantation shutters throughout completes and unifies the home.
