a beach before and after

By 11/04/2013

this summer i worked with a family from raleigh on a condo they purchased as a rental unit at the beach. it came furnished, with all this terrible overdone oriental-inspired furniture which didn't suit the beach at all. we had a tight timeline - about a month, and the budget needed to stay in the extra-reasonable range since the unit was going to be rented out only. we stripped out the carpet, put down a lovely beachy grey pergo floor, took out the popcorn ceiling, and i furnished the unit primarily with catalog purchases and a couple of shopping trips around town scouting for deals and statement pieces. here are a few before and afters (apologies for the iphone pics):

  1. Amazing Jamie! Any chance you might share some of your favorite catalog purchases from the condo? I'd love to learn more about the wall covering and those pergo floors...!

  17. You should definitely take portfolio pictures of this space. It is colorful and funky, but in a way that is accessible to most people
