Last February I met with potential clients at Amazing Grace Villa who had viewed my painting featured in the dining room and wanted to commission a custom artwork.  Here are a couple of inspiration boards I created for the clients to get a sense of the color direction they preferred.

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.

TC Millwork Recent Renovation

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.

Kelly Isle Interior Decor Inspiration

I am working on a brand new build in Kelly Isle, a contemporary canal home which is a blank white canvas I hope to fill with a few dark details, lots of texture, and plenty of casual coastal white and nuetral tones.  The focal point of the kitchen will be a large central island with the subtle grey and walnut striation finish pictured bottom right.  Sleek bar stools will tie in with the state of the art sub-zero appliances and open shelving will host well designed necessities like these.

 I am thinking along the lines of white slip covered sofas paired with ocean grey upholstered chairs and a large jute area rug for the main living room elements.  Natural woods tones and industrial style will play a part in the side tables, coffee table, art, and accessories.

The upper level contains the master bedroom, two baths, a nursery, and the office areas.  Nuetral linens, statement rugs, and key contemporary furnishings will continue the style from the main floor.
