For the last nine months I’ve been working on a fun client project: a beach home in nearby Port St. Joe. The husband is a talented builder and the wife a friend in the horse world. They brought me in before breaking ground, so it’s been exciting to be a part of all their progress. Thought you would enjoy a taste of their kitchen selections:
NOTE: you will notice the resources are not listed on their selections, which was intentional because they have paid for my time helping with all of their selections. I do offer an e-design service if you would like design advice for your own space ; )
Here is their back yard. Not bad huh? Randy took great joy in designing and building his deck all on his own, one piece of wood and nail at a time. I’m amazed that someone can actually have the patience and skill to do such a task. That boardwalk is such a peaceful spot. I have a feeling they’re going to make a lot of dolphin friends there.
The view from one of the upstairs bedrooms. An open deck perfect for stargazing.
I love working with a couple who has a strong vision for what they want. Makes my job so much more enjoyable and interesting. Funny, when we began their project the “wife vote” was a pale blue exterior and the “husband vote” was a rustic green with dark shutters and deep cream trim. Green won. It all worked out because Susie and I were given Randy’s blessing on many of our extra special interior selections. That man has been a saint. Thank you, Randy!! The interior palette is filled with pale greens and classic finishes which beautifully tie in the exterior.
Here is the front. The landscaping and the gas lanterns are not installed yet.
This picture will give you a perspective on how tall their home is. That’s my client, Susie, the ant-sized person standing in front. Cannot wait to see their gas lanterns, they are three feet tall!!
The back of their home has a space for their boat and plenty of storage, hence the height. Thankfully they have an elevator.
I’ll keep you posted on our progress. I’m getting so excited to see it all come together!!!
