Saving Grace

In July I had the great pleasure of styling for a brand new build nestled into Leewards exclusive little neighborhood bay.  What a location!  We watched this home take shape block by block over the last year and knowing COAST architects were behind the design, we knew it would be sure to impress.  Sure enough, feast your eyes on these gorgeous images by Steve Passmore.

I loved the dark rich wood floors featured throughout the house as well as the window and door detailing.  The textured fabric chandelier added a cozy glow to the Master Bedroom.

The Master Bath was one of the most spectacular rooms of the house.

Imagine sinking into this grand bathtub and looking out to this view.

Because of the well conceived orientation of the home the views are a prominent feature throughout the house.  Everywhere one turned that famous Turks and Caicos turquoise beckoned.

How could one work with this enticing sight!  The lovely owner, a Caribbean loving Canadian, must have had the same thought as she designated this room to be multi-purpose; art studio, massage room, study, whatever the nature of the day demands.

The foyer is a great introduction to the house, the rich wood floors meet your feet and contemporary, earthy furnishings greet just beyond the door.

The kitchen is so spacious it begs to be the center of family and friends gathering place.

Dining options abound, no wonder the countertop acts as a giant cutting board!

The living room conceals it’s flat screen television as a reflective mirror.

I adored these distressed vintage looking letters, much more so knowing that they represent the first letters of each of the owners childrens names.  Quite the monogram but the SEA that lies just beyond this house . . .

The location, the house, the pool, the beach makes for one completely stunning package so it’s no wonder a buyer fell in love with this house instantly, snatching it off the market in record time.

Luckily I had the chance to style for one amazing wedding here on October 27th, I’ll share those images soon!

TC Millwork Recent Renovation

Longbay Beach House Powder Room

TC Millwork has had a remarkably busy last year.  Early in 2012 our millworking division was hard at work on this incredible renovation.  A beautiful house located on Longbay Beach had seen many changes over the course of it’s history but new owners had a striking contemporary vision for it’s future.  While we refinished many of the doors and windows to coordinate with the overall look, much of the interiors were completely gutted and re-envisioned, which gave us the opportunity to create several custom woodworks.  These varied from clean lined combination open shelf and cabinet door vanities to imaginative designer furnishings like the oversize sofa swings hung from the octagon shaped sitting room and the live edge walnut slab kitchen island.

Wednesday Woodworks – Fleur de Lys Villas Fourth Bath

On deadline for the first of February, the fourth bathroom at Fleur de Lys Villa was complete!   After converting the pool house/art studio to an additional bedroom last September, we quickly realised how beneficial a fourth bathroom would be to our guests.  After gathering a few indoor/outdoor bath inspirations we quickly set to work the first week of January.  The new bath features a large terrazzo shower, louvered doors and back wall for breeze and ventilation, bright white open rafter roof and tongue and grooved side walls, and a few charming details such as below to create the cottage like ambiance.
Here are a few photos below while the bath was in progress.
Modifying the existing native stone path to curve to the new doorway.
Painted frame ready for the louver doors and panels, floor ready to be tiled.
Pebble stones collected from the beach, laid out in design for the base of the terrazzo shower.
Big thanks to the TC Millwork team for all their hard work to complete this lovely bath in a very short four weeks!  Bravo everyone!

Wednesday Woodworks – Indoor/Outdoor Bathroom Inspirations

Today we broke ground on a fourth bathroom for the Cotton Cottage at fleur de lys villa.  This was a project we had been considering for quite some time so are thrilled to put the plan into motion.  The layout will resemble the above image, a long room that will feel like a sun room; an indoor extension of the outdoors, a bright and airy space full of sunshine.

The room will feature large doors at either end that will open to already existing curved native stone paths wrapping around the cottage to the pool.

As much as we would absolutely adore a lovely tub like in the above images, 
we will most likely keep it simple with a shower framed in the center of the fully louvered back wall.  Stay posted for before and after images to come!

Wednesday Woodworks – Baths

Today tc millwork delivered fifteen beautiful mahogany doors so we are anxious to share but we must wait until installation is complete.  Instead, take a peek at some beautiful bath woodworks from around the blogosphere.  This superb built-in shows excellent craftsmanship and the windows frame it perfectly.

Love how this bath is soaked in natural light, ideal to showcase the herringbone floors.

This feminine bath features an elegant built-in vanity and ornate wardrobe.
This vintage inspired bath still feels soft and light despite the extensive chocolate hued paneling.  Love the open timber ceiling and unique sink stand.

I adore everything about this eclectic and rustic bath (except for that plain ol’ toilet spoiling the fun).  Who would have guessed that all these unlikely elements (fireplace mantel, urns, stoic gold framed portrait, oriental light fixture) would have worked side by side?  Not for everyone, but that fully planked wall leading seamlessly into the ceiling is ultra labor intensive.  Bravo!

This wide plank flooring, the massive window, the folding shutters, and the entire framework within the room leading into the bath are all clean and stylish examples of  multiple woodworks coming together to create a sophisticated space.

For the modern minded, sleek and masculine.

This bath just screams island don’t you think?  Perfect beach cottage breezy with the blue and white painted ceiling, the painting of a sailor (or my interpretation a such), and creative usage of the wall framework doubling as decorative shelving.
Here in the Caribbean this idea is not just a nice design, it is absolutely practical!  With the right landscaping, an outdoor scrub-n-suds can be private enough to enjoy unabashedly!
This post would not be complete without a wood tub.  All we have to say is, WOW!  What we wouldn’t give to have a client request on of these . . . .
