INTERIOR DESIGNSingle Family Homes Interior Designer $11,000,001 - $16,000,000 Private Residence
The planning for their Port Royal residence began in November 2021. In presenting concepts, I used Hollywood glamour with some touches of elegant, and slightly old, Hollywood style. I focused on scaling the furnishings, lighting, and accessories to accommodate the look. Many of the elements I used had a glamorous feeling, such as antique mirrors and a mosaic backsplash tile. The main home features refinished hardwood floors. Lighting choices, influenced by Jonathan Richards and Christopher Guy, were very sophisticated, such as the two cascading crystal chandeliers in the main foyer and living room. The kitchen pendant lights were art nouveau.
The built-ins were designed to accentuate the large rooms and to accommodate the client’s lifestyle. For example, we added a Mediterranean, blue painted built-in with glass front doors in the study, inspired by Christopher Guy. The family room built-ins feature a creamy white finish and a gold antique mirror which houses a 100-inch flat screen television. The dining room, with a stunning chevron ceiling, is enhanced by an elongated crystal chandelier. The floral sheer drapery in the dining room was selected first and the room was designed from that fabric choice. And since the first floor integrated both silver and gold, we used a gold finish in the dining room.
Other renovations included the daughter’s bedroom, redesigned from the original, one bedroom layout. The client wanted her to have a dual study corner, so we designed a white built-in with pink crystal knobs. Silk Flamingo, champagne curtains were a showstopper for this room. A special dressing room was created off the master hallway’s spiral staircase where the client can relax. Wallpaper was also a major inspiration for the style of this home as seen in the soft pink bedroom.
The kitchen back-splash tile is a marble mosaic design emphasizing the Hollywood glamour style. A custom Lucite breakfast table introduced a light and airy flavor that was repeated with two Theodore Alexander ghost chairs in the family room.
This home saw some tremendous upgrades, such as a striking walk-in wine cellar with marble floors and floating wine racks. Except for one bedroom, all the window treatments were created by the designer.
