A CLASSIC ELEGANT BEACH HOUSE

May 18, 2017
I recently shared where my family and I have stayed in Watersound, FL the last couple of years for vacation here. Today, I am sharing the house they stayed in this year because again the finishes are amazing!

The "Pearl of Watersound" is a 5-bedroom, 5.5 baths, with a classic elegant feel but with touches of modern flare. The finishes used are lots of black and white with elegant lighting and hardware with contemporary furniture. Each room had an abundant amount of windows with natural light pouring in. I love how each house has it's own character and style.

KITCHEN

What's a kitchen without two islands? The two islands fits this space perfectly! Love the mix of classic elegant with modern seating.





Fun Fact: The hardware on these cabinets was actually popular in the 1930's.

A TIMELESS BEACH HOUSE

May 9, 2017
Every year my family and I travel to Watersound, Florida. Watersound is located off of 30A between Watercolor, and Rosemary Beach. It is a charming little neighborhood with private beach access, a community pool, parks, tennis courts, putting range, bicycle rental, quaint little restaurants,  etc. Take a peek with me inside one of these beautiful homes...

The "Summer Wind" house is a 6-bedroom house we have stayed in the past two years. Yes, I have a big family and it is a perfect house to accommodate all of us. I want to share with you a couple of pictures and videos from this beautiful house because it is absolutely stunning and the finishes used are timeless. - (Finishes include lots of shiplap, white, grey, marble, and wood throughout)

I'm always on the search for lighting for my designs. New lighting makes all the difference. It can set the mood in a space and make a beautiful statement. It's an excellent way to update your homes. Came across this lighting company called The Urban Electric Co. and thought I would share some of my favorites from their collection.

THE MODERN FARMHOUSE DESIGN PROCESS

January 2, 2017
Came upon this saying and thought I would share...

Blessed are those who see beautiful things in humble places where other people see nothing.

Exciting things to share with you all today! Elz Design is working on a special project for a client who bought an older home (1920's) and needed help visualizing the design for the overall main floor.

My client needed my expertise in the following:
1.) How to make the small layout of the kitchen feel larger, including finish selections
2.) How to separate the Dining and Living Room without constructing a wall
3.) How to achieve the modern farmhouse look
4.) Furniture layout

I especially like working on these projects where I can use my rendering skills to visually show the client how the space could look. My favorite part is seeing their reaction from what it looked like before to the beautiful rendered illustrations.

With the design process of renovating a house with a client's wants and needs, I put myself in their shoes of what should be in each space- the style, the functionality, and the value it brings to each home. Even in the kitchen, when they are cooking, how storage and cabinetry should be laid out for easy access and functionality. After walking through the house to get a feel of the home, the ideas started flowing and visually I could see it all completed. Now it's time to take those ideas and show you!

**NOTE: Not all architectural elements are included in these illustrations (i.e. fireplace design, dining room built-ins,  family room built-in bookcase. This does not mean I am not using them in the design, it is just the program I use only allows me to do so much.

These illustrations below is just to give you a feel and layout of the house.

Let’s start with the main level floor plan.



FOYER



PROPOSED DESIGN:




LIVING ROOM




PROPOSED DESIGN:







No need to construct walls and enclose two areas,with the use of furniture placement,the Living Room and Dining each have their own separate space.

DINING





PROPOSED DESIGN:








KITCHEN





The Kitchen and Dining room will now be more open with removing part of the wall separating the dining/kitchen. Creating a small peninsula in the middle not only provides more countertop space and cabinet storage, but also a perfect bar seating for two.

PROPOSED DESIGN:






Using white cabinetry, light neutral colored walls, and placing the open glass cabinets next to the window reflects the light and makes this small kitchen feel larger. 

Thank you for checking in today to see the vision for this space! Design services and renderings for your personal home or flip home available, check out the options here.
