    Behind The Design: Master Bedroom Spruce Up

    Often times the master bedroom is the most neglected room in the house. Probably because most visitors never see the space, so we put it last on the to-do list. For a new out-of-town client, we were excited to help her (virtually!) turn her master bedroom into her favorite room in the house! 

    Thankfully the client made this project easy with beautiful existing pieces - a colorful campaign dresser, beautiful neutral wall color and luxurious all-white bedding!

    My first task was to dress up the bed by bringing in a pop of pattern and a little blue. Three of our pretty blue Cairo pillows and a soft-as-butter throw blanket for the foot of the bed did just that! 

    The campaign-style nightstands and dresser are another gorgeous shade of blue so I chose to incorporate our oversized Mellow Marsh art on the biggest blank wall in the room. The colors are perfect but it's the subject that the client really appreciates. What's more serene than a still marsh view?!

    To tie it all together we're replacing the existing rug with another Cape House favorite, our Rigging Rug! The denim and oatmeal colorway is even more beautiful in person.

    Project Spotlight: Korman Casa (Part 1)

    Today we're thrilled to share a preview of a very special project we've been working on (alongside the Lola Interiors team!) for unofficial Cape House family members, the Korman family. The  Korman family is moving to the beach and we couldn't be happier for them! 

    It all starts outside. The exterior of the home perfectly blends homeowner Nicki's classic taste with modern coastal touches perfectly suited for Amelia Island living. An oversized front porch, calming paint colors and bold light fixtures make for a warm Southern welcome! What's not to love?! 

    Inside the home the focus is on the families favorite gathering place - the kitchen! With two young boys and a big heart for entertaining, this space will get plenty of use! In true Cape House fashion we've mixed blue hues, warm wood tones and a pop of gold to ensure the space is timeless, bright, and airy! 

    A detail we love: The kitchen cabinetry isn't all white (all though we adore that look too!) - the island boasts the most beautiful shade of blue! It's the perfect pop of color and can easily be updated down the road. 

    Pro tip: When selecting counter or bar stools for busy families with young children, we appreciate options without upholstery for easy cleanup after meals and snacks. 

    Right off of the kitchen you'll find the main living area. We've mixed navy blue fabric on our favorite recliners with light white-washed wood tones, creamy leather and an oversized woven coffee table for a collected yet pulled-together look. We definitely played favorites in this living space by including our all-time favorite console table, the Bungalow 5 navy grasscloth end table we can't get enough of and our favorite CR Laine upholstered pieces. 

    A detail we love: The colorful rug! It's definitely the focal point of the space and the perfect way to disguise kiddo messes. 

    Pro tip: We're big fans of mixing fabric and leather in large spaces! It keeps the room interesting without going overboard on pattern. 

    Excited to see the end product? We'll be sharing more of the Korman Casa right here on the blog next month so stay tuned! 

     

    Behind The Design: Modern Coastal Updates

    While I love the classic blue and white beach house (no surprise there!), it's always fun to help clients do something a bit unique with their oceanfront abodes! 

    I love the appreciate the challenge of thinking outside of the box when it comes to designing beach houses. While you can't go wrong with a traditional coastal design, bringing in more modern elements and moody color combos makes for a stunning end product! 

    I'm currently working on details for a Carlton Dunes renovation that perfectly captures the elegant, transitional style of the homeowners. While we still have several decisions to make, I thought it would be fun to share some of the options we're currently mulling over. Which would you select? 

    LIGHTING

    The living room in this home definitely steals the show with massive windows overlooking our gorgeous island beaches. This couple wants to update their very traditional library builtins to incorporate a few natural elements and provide a much more modern look overall. The new design started with a layout and the idea to paint the cabinetry instead of completely gutting the unit. We'll finish the new statement piece off with out of the ordinary library lighting. The Liam is always a stunner but we're also considering the longer Barret and Cosmopolitan options. 

    DINING 

    A beautiful glass table currently takes up residence in the formal dining room. Glass tables play well at the beach - I love the way light bounces from the surface! New (more comfortable) dining chairs have been requested to really spruce this entertaining space up. I can't get enough of the texture in the Amario and Augusta chairs! And while we don't typically associate leather dining chairs with oceanside living, I love the juxtaposition of throwing in a lighter leather into the mix on the Conrad chair. Ps. If you're not crazy about the fabric but love these chairs, I have good news! They're available in tons of fabrics and finishes so we can create exactly what you're looking for. 

    It's all in the details, isn't it?! I can't wait to see how these simple updates transform the unit into a space the homeowners never want to leave! 

    Now let me know in the comments below, which pieces would you select?! 

    A Very Special Thank You

    Thank you, thank you, thank you for another amazing year! 

    The heart behind our business is relationships and where they begin: in the home. Our hope is to help you create a comfortable space that can serve as the backdrop for time spent with family and friends - living, loving, and learning.⁠

    Without our amazing customers, we wouldn't be where we are, or who we are, today. Thank you for making this dream come true and continuing to support us daily! We are truly grateful and look forward to many more years!

    Next week we'll share reflections from our founders, on what the last three years have looked like. But for now, let's jump back to where it all started! 

     

     

    The date: March 2016. The destination: Cape Town South Africa. Here the concept was inspired: an anniversary trip shared by four best friends. Upon arrival, the Jones and the Hintons immediately fell in love with everything about the town, the scenery, the architecture, the color schemes, the crisp, coastal-chic style around every corner ‚ really everything! Blown away by its beauty, they felt completely at ease ‚ able to completely disconnect from their every day, embrace rest, and focus on the future, namely, this store concept. Conversations over glasses of Pinotage led to the discovery of the root behind the whole concept ‚ their passion for meaningful and spiritual relationships and where they begin: in the home. By combining Lance's love for the gourmet and Tiffany's love for interiors, their dream took shape as Cape House!

    As we celebrate another anniversary, we look back on all that the last few years have brought. Since the return from Cape Town, countless hours have been spent bringing this vision to life and creating on Amelia Island, what we now know as Cape House. Thank you for being a part of this dream!
