Hi There !
So excited to share my install in Coral Gables which finally, finally happened not too long ago. It was a year in the making - who knew getting permits and all the work done would be such a challenge for my client Lindsay Heitman?! But I was hoping after I finished all that pain and annoyance would melt away. So, we blew off the dust on all the pieces we have been storing here in Charlotte, loaded up and flew down to meet the truck for several days of installing in the Gables a few weeks ago. Maggie and I always have fun on those out of town jobs, trying to stay somewhere nice and indulging in a good spa trip at the end of the install. The trip was fun of adventure, as usual, visiting crabs and all.
I was down there several days, and on the last photographer Dustin Peck flew in to meet me and we spent a day shooting this complete gut job and install ! Take a look at the gorgeous shots !
The entry foyer certainly sets the tone for this black and white main living area with a good dose of metallic. All very dramatic !
I particularly love this Zoffany wall paper, complimenting the black trim and killer detailed door. Directly in your view from the front door a horn console table and two art pieces by Keith J Keim in a much lighter color to really pop off the black.
From the foyer you turn into the main, open living space. White walls with grey washed tile floors. White leather sofa and gorgeous chaise in a black to white ombre fabric.
The accent wall of paper in this room bleeds into the dining room and is the focal point. Love all of Lindsay Cowles
paper's, but this one in particular!
I really wanted pattern on pattern in this space. The roman shades are flanked with ombre curtains, a sofa shag rug and the white leather is paired with a grey velvet and ombre velvet. Clustered coffee tables as oppose to one and grouping of mirrors finish it off.
This open space continues into the dining area and kitchen, color is cohesive and mixed metals keep it interesting. I have loved stag horn ferns for a while now and Lindsay's awesome contractor Raymond help so much on this install actually cutting this one for me and mounting.
A quick spin around and the long last, and reason for the hold up ... kitchen. Apparently Lindsay's cabinet contractors screwed up and didn't carry the cabinets to the ceiling. She fixed that for sure and voila the correct cabinets - all gorgeous ! Sticking backsplash and all the bells and whistles in this space.
Lucite counter stools, gorgeous pendants and a little juju on the long white wall.
The small bar area just off the kitchen and just as dramatic.
I love the master as well. Lindsay saw my wall paper at home and had to have it. We can't get enough of this paper and have used in several different application. The barn door is covered with a eye-catching tryptic in like colors and we chose two different light fixtures, one swing arm, one table lamp to mix it up a bit.
The master bath, all Lindsay. She did such a great job picking tile and fixtures. I definitely have bathroom envy.
The guest bath is yet another example of Lindsay's great choices in fixtures, tile and hardware !
With two daughters I loved creating magical spaces for each. Vivian's accent wall is covered in the prettiest Eskayel
Etsy is a great place for accessories. I chose a wall hanging for a bit of a boho vibe.
The kid's bath has a touch of paper as well and sleek, clean fixtures.
Down the hall is the back TV room. Just off the pool this space will be used daily for sure.

And can't forget Lucia's room, a little girl with a space to last her into those tween years.
