The Porters Neck 3 project was a referral from our Porters Neck 2 clients who happen to live two doors down. The homeowners had started the process of a kitchen and laundry room renovation but were feeling overwhelmed by the selections they were being asked to make by their contractor without guidance or knowledge of the proper resources.
When they saw how well their neighbor’s kitchen renovation went, they decided to give Intracoastal Interiors a call.
I was able to help finalize their finish selections within a single appointment as well as introduce them to several reliable subcontractors that helped to complete the renovation under my project management (on time and within budget, of course!), allowing the homeowner to focus on other things, like furnishing the main living area.
When I initially met this client, she wanted a lighter, brighter living space. We decided to have the walls of the entire main living area in this open-concept home painted a beautiful, almost neutral shade of blue called “Windowpane” by Benjamin Moore that brightened up the space instantly.
Next, we selected new sofas with a similar shade slipcover for easy maintenance. Bold hits of coral and turquoise via a custom upholstered swivel recliner and lacquered grasscloth cocktail table complement the paler shades of blue and accents of polished nickel.
Drapery panels were designed to frame the view and layer over woven shades in the living room for further texture and interest.
We worked with some of the client’s existing furniture, including the china cabinet which we painted from black to a bright satin white with aqua interior. The painted blue interior was the perfect backdrop for the client’s ocean-themed pottery and shell collection, and we replaced the existing hardware with cut and polished glass knobs in a bright, happy shade of turquoise.
We used the same glass knobs on a custom media cabinet that I designed and had fabricated to fit their storage needs, with woven rattan fronts and a ming-style foot.
My artist-client and her family finally have a bright, happy home that reflects their fun and unique personalities.
Not only is the home good-looking, but it’s finally functional too, with an updated laundry room and kitchen, and a more inviting layout and furnishings.
I was thrilled to be able to make such a difference in this client’s home and to meet them through a wonderful word-of-mouth referral from right down the street!
