This young family had grown tired of their previous French Country inspired rooms and turned to our design team to provide fresh, simple and airy coastal interiors. Their current spaces consisted of buttery golden walls, dusty floral patterned upholstery and many black finished casegoods that dominated their residence and created a significant disconnect with their graceful Cape Cod exterior. The client’s greatest concerns entailed their current kitchen design, the overall aesthetic and poor quality finishes of their current interiors, and the need for an additional bedroom to serve as a future nursery.
Upon reviewing the client requirements and desires, the designers conceptualized a complete kitchen remodel with a built-in banquette and computer workstations, as well as master bathroom and laundry room remodels, a new bedroom for their expanding family needs, as well as a cohesive Nantucket-inspired design plan to tie all of the spaces together in this very large residence. The designer’s journey included providing a family-friendly design that including stripping and donating many of the existing interior finishes. New hard installed materials included hand-scraped solid ash flooring, pristine white cabinetry, several unusual glass mosaic tile backsplashes, recycled white quartz countertops, a magnificent lighting package, transitional plumbing and hardware packages, extensive and dramatic millwork treatments, custom plantation shutters and a mostly neutral color palette backdrop. Added on top of these handsome backgrounds were new custom furniture and window treatments, commissioned artwork and art glass, custom wall murals for the children’s rooms and many colorful and unusual hand-selected accessories. The collective new interior spaces created a very individual and unique statement for the client while creating a harmoniously cohesive coastal design throughout the entire residence successfully reflecting the client’s lifestyle and desires.
