Casual, inviting, low-maintenance home

The project scope was to create a fun, shabby chic first home for a young celebrity couple who desired a sense of place and tranquility. The floor plan and building materials were kept practical and functional, and the interiors eclectic and youthful. This home was an ideal answer to this power couple's lifestyle. This project required thoughtful and innovative application of high-low finishes and creative architectural solutions. Sited on a prominent lake front, it's in keeping with the high-end neighborhood for sound investment while being true to the client's fiscally conservative values and casual lifestyle. The design solution blends a vibe of modern urban loft with Hampton chic, and connotes as much a New York hipster aesthetic as it does a sense of southern hearth and home. The open floor plan, finishes and furnishings are casual, inviting and low maintenance. Architecture is kept simple, with industrial finishes and earthy materials anchoring the unpretentious design.
