Designer Kerrie Kelly shares how her team used sun-drenched colors and bold patterns to transform this home into a breezy retreat.
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you have to shy away from bright colors, playful patterns, and sun-drenched beach motifs. When our clients told us they wanted a master suite that embodied the sunny disposition of their favorite Miami beach spot, we were excited to get started.
Inspired by the young family’s fun and upbeat personality, we threw caution to the wind to create one of the liveliest spaces we’ve ever done.
With rich colors, patterns-a-plenty, and lots of fun texture, this beach-inspired space is perfect for the dynamic family, who often host holiday parties, weekend sleepovers, and family game nights.
We were drawn to the space’s expansive and gorgeous large-format tile flooring.
Before: A dated, dark kitchen in need of a color pop or two.
To make this space shine, we added a playful mix of beachy colors and patterns to intensify the home’s naturally light-filled look.
The new retreat inspires creativity in everyday life with bursts of color and patterns in varying scales, while the complementary tones create the perfect place for friends and family to gather.
After: Perfect pairings of pattern, color, and texture give the kitchen new life.
The living room
The living room was dull and in dire need of color.
Before: The design team’s living room redesign started from “blah.”
Using metallic accents to add balance to the colorful design, we gave the living room a soothing yet modern update with robust art and calming elements like candles and wood-hewn accessories. An oversized mirror serves as a beautiful focal point, drawing the eye toward the family’s favorite part of their new space. By mixing patterns and colors, we created depth and dimension while maintaining a relaxed and playful vibe.
After: Bold colors and metal accents breathe adventure into the space.
like the living room, the master bedroom and guest rooms were perfectly plain — and screaming for a face lift.
Before: Monochrome bedrooms provided a clean slate for the new design.After: The master bedroom brings paradise home with beachy prints and patterns.After: One guest bedroom welcomes all who enter with a cheerful wall treatment and brightly colored accents that elevate the mood. After: The second guest bedroom invites family and friends with a relaxed yet sophisticated vibe.
The young family is excited to live in a space that reflects their colorful personality, and they’re ready and able to use every square inch for entertaining their nearest and dearest.
