When approached by my client to join their team on this renovation I was excited for the challenge! This home is located on the ocean in the Atlantic Beach area of Jacksonville, Florida. It was a very old home that had been rather unsuccessfully added on to over the years by various owners. Our job was to bring uniformity to the home and open up the view to the ocean. The East facade was largely covered by walls and tiny windows. I worked closely with the architect on this puzzle and we were able to open up spaces, clean up adjacencies, create a functional and beautiful new kitchen for our client who loves to cook as well as a terrific new master suite with good closet space and a nice master bathroom that did not exist before.
This job required many site meetings and attention to detail on the space plan. Once that part was completed I worked with my clients who were relocating from the Washington DC/Arlington area with several formal pieces of furniture to incoporate. Taking their DC style and making it feel “beachy” was a fun challenge. We were successful with the outcome by paying close attention to the millwork, flooring, and wall finishes throughout. I was very pleased with the space when the client’s furniture and art collection arrived and was placed. Due to our extensive planning everything was seamless, creating a wonderful beach home that is comfortable and beautiful.
