An “Old Florida” home was updated to universal design standards, with a kitchen expansion, a new bar height peninsula, a renovated master bath which includes, a zero threshold shower, honed travertine marble flooring and walls with glass tile accents to provide a space to age gracefully in. Addition of impact rated doors and windows, a garage and impact rated metal roof provide the needed hurricane protections. Architectural trim added to the interior, removal of Popcorn ceilings and a fresh coat of paint in a tropical color palette was applied to the entire interior. Front porch pillars were removed, a bead board ceiling treatment in high gloss white opens up the homes' entrance adding a welcoming, airy, cheerful feel while the interior reflects the carefree Florida culture of sun, sand and sea.
A move from the Jersey Shore to a prestigious South Florida country club provided this client with the opportunity to create a completely new and personalized home. Her penchant for the ornate French Provincial period and her many family heirlooms and personal treasures were combined with tropical elements to create an effective stylized Florida home. A spectacular iron and crystal chandelier is the focal centerpiece of this open floor plan, elegant wallpapers in classic patterns with a metallic print to add a hint of luxe to the otherwise relaxed main furnishings which are upholstered in soft neutral linen fabrics. Many of the client's existing antiques, including a fabulous baroque mirror and a gorgeous ceramic Asian figure lamp, were integrated with new furnishings to create an eclectic and truly personalized home. Replacing the simple Roman shade window treatments with sheer linen Luminettes by Hunter Douglas, topped with custom valances in complementary fabric, finishes off the home's elegant decor.
A Southwest-style river house was updated, introducing a coastal palette of crisp whites, serene blues, rich corals and soft sand tones that represent the Florida coast. Casual linen fabrics and natural woods, reflecting the flora and fauna that abound along the rivers and beaches, were selected for the furnishings and decorative accents, along with the clients' personal treasures collected during their lifetimes of travel.
A desire to maximize return in a booming California real estate market compelled a client to invest in selected upgrades to ensure the home was presented to its best advantage. Dated tile on the kitchen counters and backsplashes was updated with a gorgeous "butterfly" green solid surface granite and interior furnishings and decor were added to highlight the expansive open spaces and high ceilings. The home sold quickly and the client received his asking price.
An interior designer researches, analyzes and plans interior layouts to make them physically, socially and aesthetically functional. Once designed, the decorating begins to embellish the interior spaces; the furnishing or adorning of a space with fashionable or beautiful things. This often includes selection of paints colors for walls, or wallpaper, selection and placement of furniture, installation of window treatments, and accessories such as throw rugs, lamps, throw pillows and wall art to a room.
A complementary one hour consult in the clients space is provided to discuss the desired scope of the project. This is where I will take notes and photographs and ask you LOTS of questions. This is considered the intake phase.
A well executed interior design expresses the values, tastes, experiences, lifestyle and dreams of the occupants. Generally, this will encompass the occupants’ values pertaining to form and function, whether they prefer, fun or sincerity, funky or classic, hip and sophisticated, or elegant and classic. It will reveal their life’s experiences; it may be full of family memorabilia or collected items from travel, it may reflect how they dream of living, as in resort style, glamorous style, beach cottage style or possibly an eclectic bohemian style.
The final decision and design will be a culmination of priorities communicated to the Designer by the client. From the information gathered a formal proposal will be submitted, detailing the scope of the project and the cost basis and payment terms in contract form.
Our services include the creation of an overall design concept, floor and lighting plans; selection, presentation and specification of furniture, appliances, hardware, accessories and art for your approval; and management of the entire process to ensure timely execution of the overall design vision. Depending upon the scope of the project, the work may include proposing that an architect and/or contractor be hired with whom we will collaborate to ensure your vision is materialized.
"I think all designers are like Bowerbirds, flying the globe, taking bits and pieces from different places and then weaving them into beautiful, individual and unique nests."
Originally from Northern California, Jaime has spent time in Europe, The Caribbean, and both the West and East coasts of the United States. The youngest child of an artist, many days of her youth were spent touring designer show houses. Totally hooked by the realization that creating a beautiful and functional home and adding value in the process was exhilarating, interior design became a passion that never waned.
Traveling the globe as the Hospitality Manager aboard a private mega-yacht, seeing some of the world's most-beautiful residences and yachts, inspired her to complete the Interior Design Programs at West Valley and Canada Colleges in California and pursue her dreams of a career in Interior Design.
