Hobe Sound Florida Ranch: Part 2

Design Trick: Print an image of the existing house, "whiteout" the areas to be changed and then color in the new features and color before the real paint is applied. Below are images of my hand-colored ideas, then the construction image and finally the actual house. We painted the house in a Sherwin Williams white, added the new black shutters, and painted the front door in Benjamin Moore Palladian Blue.

New larger windows being installed.

When the couple joyfully gave away the pool table (which was located in the living room), four green carpet remnants remained to offer a glimpse of the Florida style interiors of another time.

Below are images of the family and living rooms before, along with my design concepts. I wanted to keep as much furniture, lighting and accessories as possible. Carefully selecting what would stay, and what would go. Then determine how to use the new fabrics and finishes to transform the space into a traditional island style interior.

Foyer before the walls come down.


Fabric and Finish Selections: The flooring is engineered with look of a wood with a European oil finish and provided by Lance Erickson Builders and Contemporary Flooring of Jupiter Florida. Walker Zanger porcelain [Acustico] tile has a natural looking finish of aged stone and would be installed in the kitchen and bath areas.

Natural Sisals and linen textiles were selected from Brunschwig & Fils, Peter Dunham, and Peter Fasano for the living area.

Wool area rugs were selected at market.
