Beach House - Before & After

Posted on January 25, 2012 by 1 | 3 Comments

This summer we worked on a house at Rosemary Beach for some of our favorite clients. It was full of dark wood molding and was purchased fully furnished with plenty of Texas Longhorn orange (maybe if it were Auburn orange it would be ok -- just kidding). We used some of the existing furniture as well as some from the client's previous house and some new pieces. The goal was to transform this fabulous three story house into what the client wanted...a light, comfortable, more casual and functional beach house.

A custom banquette provides A TON of seating and once again..breaks up the dark wood.

MASTER BEDROOM AFTER

[caption id="attachment_4495" align="aligncenter" width="496" caption="First we rotated the placement of the bed so that it is the focal point. Draping off the whole wall behind the bed allowed us to ignore the window and place the bed in the center of the wall. Art hung in front of drapery is one of Ashley's favorites."][/caption]

THIRD FLOOR BEFORE

THIRD FLOOR AFTER

[caption id="attachment_4507" align="aligncenter" width="496" caption="We use the sofas from the Living Area Before to balance the space and brought the focal point to the windows instead of the huge TV."][/caption]

THIRD FLOOR BEDROOM BEFORE

LOFT BEDROOM AFTER
