Before and After

Attention to detail flows throughout the home. The simplicity of pure white creates the perfect backdrop for muted tones and textures of accent materials.

The owners purchased this 1960’s era one-story brick home in a well-established community in close proximity to the ocean. Their desire was to transform this nondescript, red brick rambler into an attractive, beachy-chic cottage with bright airy spaces, soft colors and natural textures. The exterior look of the home was enhanced by the addition of a second floor for added bedroom spaces.

Before and After

The existing kitchen did not relate to the adjacent sunroom. The redesign now provides direct access and interaction between spaces to facilitate entertaining guests.

The renovation divided this space into a cozy, sun-lit Florida room and a casual dinette area. There are stunning views of the swimming pool and distant lagoon.

The blending of soft, beachy colors and natural textures, along with shell-stone tile floors and lime-washed cypress plank walls, lends a feeling of relaxed comfort.

A complete transformation in color, texture and feeling was accomplished by incorporating light, hickory plank wood flooring, white painted horizontal wall panels, white-washed brick at the fireplace and the addition of simple boxed beams to the vaulted ceiling.

Stained cabinets, dark granite counter tops, and black appliances have given way to driftwood-toned cabinets, honed statuary marble counter tops, a pale grey ceramic tile backsplash, and brushed stainless steel appliances under a lime-washed, cypress wood ceiling and white painted walls.

We Are Building Quality Homes and Lasting Relationships

The careful blending of white-painted brick and natural cedar shakes defines a traditional, cottage style of architecture.

The once oversized and under-utilized entry foyer has become a sunlit gallery for displaying art and sculpture adjacent to an attractive, new staircase. Beyond was a long, narrow, sunroom stretching the entire rear of the home.

A complete transformation in color, texture, and feeling was accomplished.
