When Renovation Means Revolution – Sleek & Modern Meets Beachfront

November 9, 2015

While browsing through the Interior Design website I stumbled upon this article that reminded me of one of our own projects. It is all about restoring a home to its former glory after being vacant for some time. Although our project was not as intensive as this one, they still had their similarities.

We recently had the pleasure of renovating an ocean front condo on Wrightsville Beach, NC to fit the clean and cool taste of its stylish new owner. We transformed the originally traditional space into a brighter, younger, and more modern home. With a small collection of furniture from his New York City apartment in tow, our client already had a great foundation for us to build from. The 3 bedroom, 2 bath residence with a large open kitchen, dining and living room had great bones and views already in place. It was then a matter of introducing just the right colors, textures and lighting to complete the look.

We opted to refinish the existing hardwood floors since they were still in pretty good shape and they cleaned up just beautifully! A fresh, new coat of paint on all the walls in cooler grays and blues supported the clean, fluid feel throughout the home.

The kitchen was our perfect opportunity to introduce some new materials. We painted the cabinets a soft gray and added some new upper doors with frosted glass. We also swapped out the cabinet knobs for new sleek, brushed stainless pulls. The new backsplash was just enough to add interest and texture the small space without looking overdone. With the final touches of glass pendant lights above the bar and 3 new barstools, the kitchen looked brand new.



With our client’s super modern style, a bit of a different spin on a beach home, we really still wanted to incorporate the feeling of being at the beach. The guestrooms were completely blank slates for us to work with and implement this idea. We selected new beds, bedding, window treatments and artwork that worked together. We pulled from a variety of our designer resources- Surya, Precedent, and Schoolhouse Electric to name a few to help us achieve our desired look.

The end result is a polished, sophisticated and a very welcoming place to live- Just look at those ocean views!
