ha! they really lucked out, didn't they?? (wink*wink*)
so, just to aquaint you with this project...heres what we are dealing with:
a second story, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa with an open living/dining/kitchen, and a very long sunroom with golf course view. the floor plan shows a screened in porch and a deck, but the previous owner finished the entire space, and it is now one looong sunroom.
what they want:
--an updated, welcoming, refined interior
--a place to showcase some of their extensive art and book collection
--to furnish the entire space on a 18K budget (it will be totally empty when they start.)
--minor kitchen updates
as you can see, there are some really great things to be excited about!
*consistent flooring throughout the main living area*tall ceilings...most of seabrook was developed in the 1970's and 80's, when 8' ceilings were a little too abundant. this unit has 9' ceilings, which is desirable.
*an open floor plan that flows nicely
*newer appliances (many villas on seabrook haven't been touched in 30 years, so it was nice that the counters had been redone, and new appliances installed)
* a large master bedroom (below)
*non hideous ceiling fans. yay!
speaking of views...ahhhh!!
over the next few weeks, i will be sharing all of the final design plans for each of the rooms in the villa. we have been working on this project since christmas, and everything is falling into place. orders have been made, trips taken to haul furniture and art, and lots of household items brought in so that this villa will become a true second home and (hopefully) hard-working rental property!
i am actually going to charleston in about 2 weeks to finish things up. i can't wait to share some after pictures!
in the mean time, here are some gorgeous coastal interiors that inspired our vision:
