Here are preliminary schemes for a project I have been working on. It has been the most fun project! The client is capitalizing on the horrible real estate market and buying a vacation/retirement home in Florida. They are a couple in their mid-thirties and don’t want a typical Floridian beach home (no palm fronds, no wicker, etc.). They wanted the everything about the home to convey carefree fun. The clients are really stretching their budget to afford the second home and will be using it as a vacation rental to offset the expense.
The reason I was hired, along with my design point of view, was to minimize the brain damage. We decided everything for the home would be “off-the-shelf”, no custom, no reupholstery, no antiques or vintage finds. I created a turn-key deisgn, a complete shopping list of furniture, lighting and accessories that could be purchased either on-line or in stores and could be delivered and installed in the simplest/quickest manner. Basically, they didn’t want to spend months and months accumulating and worrying about furnishing the home, they wanted to get on with enjoying it.
Here are the schemes I created for the project. I was given a huge amount of freedom with the design because this isn’t the client’s primary home and we are expecting to replace the furniture over the next 30 or so years before the retire and make it their full time home. The images below don’t include everything for the project, but gives a good idea of the intended look and feel of the home.
The purchasing for this project is currently underway. Hopefully I will receive installation photos soon and will be able to post them here.
I create these types of concept boards for nearly every project I work on, it helps the client to see everything together all in one place. Also, it gives an idea of color composition and general mood of the room. These concept boards also work wonderfully for e-design clients when we aren’t in the same state, but the project scale and budget doesn’t allow for me to travel to the job site. I am always excited to work with new clients. Please contact me using the link in the sidebar or at jamie(at)jamiefoleyinteriors(dot)com to inquire about my services.
