Our clients were fishing enthusiasts that loved ocean sport fishing. They wanted their home to feel fun, like they were staying at a Caribbean sport fishing resort. We used a sailfish as our inspiration for the design of this project.

Master Bedroom

Before

The master bedroom had a mauve wallpaper print, very old mauve carpet and a small closet before the makeover. And check out the saloon doors leading to the bathroom. Swanky!

After

The walls are now a cool ice blue and the floors are wood-look tile in a light driftwood tone. Woven accents on the bed and chair aligned with the Caribbean feel.

A new walk in closet was added along with a washer dryer closet at the end of the hall.

Great Room & Porch

Before

The great room felt very dark and the exposed beams on the ceiling made the room feel small.

After

We covered the beams and added LED recessed lighting throughout. A large sectional and easy to move chairs make for a great conversation area for telling those fishing yarns.

The diagonal placement of the tile helps to keep the space from feeling like a bowling alley.

Since we couldn’t tile the area on the porch, we faux painted the floor to match the colors and flow of the tile inside.

Dining & Kitchen

A bold outdoor rug is perfect for a beachy dining room.

Blue pearl granite and a new blue glass backsplash spruced up the kitchen.

Guest Room

Before

The guest room was once a home office.

After

The new guest room is nautical but nice.

The star of the space is the awesome sailfish photo by Pat Ford (used with permission). It’s both a mural and storage for fishing rods as shown below.
