What I've Been Up To
We're only two months into 2021, but my plate has been full! With the Naples real estate market in full swing, I've been designing everything from full renovation homes to new homeowners looking to refresh a few rooms at a time. So, let's dive into a few projects I'm currently working on...
This home is a completely new build, requiring everything from selecting finishes to the perfect paint color on the walls. I love working with new construction homes in Naples, as they provide a blank canvas to create my client's dream home. I've worked with this same client designing their condo in The Dunes in Naples. Going from a small condo design to a large home design is always a fun transition, too!
This downtown Naples condo is the ideal part-time spot for my clients. It has a stunning view of the Gulf and we want to create a space that is bright, functional and cozy for when they come down for a visit. A fun detail of this home is a built-in washer and dryer that hide behind a farm door, keeping it functional and decorative! I'm also designing their home in Dallas, which will be a fun next step with this client.
The traditional Naples homes of this part of town are always a favorite of mine. This client has a beautiful town home off of Third Street South - we are in the process of a few upgrades, including a kitchen remodel, a fresh coat of paint for her lower level, and an updated office design. Working from home means loving your office space more than ever before!
The Le Ciel penthouse design was one of my favorite projects to complete - and has been featured in several publications, including most recently, Gulfshore Life Home. I am now working on a few projects for her, including continued updates in her penthouse suite.
Bay Shore Place
This condo building holds a special place in my heart. My mom used to have a place here, so it's an honor to continue helping clients who live in the building. Currently, I'm helping a few clients with selecting window treatments and new furniture for specific rooms.
Fort Myers Beach
Not all my clients are Naples-based! This couple purchased two gorgeous condos in Fort Myers Beach, and I have the opportunity to perfect both of them for when family comes to visit.
This Park Plaza condo in Naples required several design elements, including window treatments, new paint and minor renovations. I so enjoy working with this client and look forward to completing their space to make a home they love!
This quaint condo is located in the well-known community of Hammock Bay, in between Naples and Marco. My clients here are looking to refresh two rooms in their home with a mix of new and previously owned furniture. One way to economize a large design project is to refurbish current pieces through upholstering. We're able to do that with a few different pieces in this home to make sure my client gets the most out of their budget!
Just a stone's throw from Naples, Marco Island is another great spot for part-time residents to reside. For this condo in Marco, I am working on remodeling two of their bathrooms and also re-installing their front door for an updated look.
As many know, I relocated from St. Louis after being a long-term resident there. I love that my client base kept in touch and I get the opportunity to continue working with them after all this time! For one client, we are in the process of remodeling two bathrooms. For another, we are redesigning an entire kitchen - I hand drafted all the details for the remodel to ensure we met every requirement and detail. Some clients don't require a full remodel - for example, I'm currently working with someone on window treatments, rugs, accessories, etc. I think one trend I've seen is creating work from home spaces for clients who are looking to elevate their home office to something more suitable for day-to-day working.
St. Louis, Cincinnati, Sarasota and Beyond!
This client and I have worked together for four of her homes! I always love helping clients move into their new spaces and getting to know their style on a personal level to translate in every detail of their home. We are currently redoing her master bedroom draperies and pillows - a small project in comparison to the complete remodel required for her Sarasota home!
As you can see, I stay busy here in Naples! I handle everything from ground-up construction remodels to replacing a few furniture pieces to transform a space.
