Canal Contemporary

When the clients of the Canal Contemporary project reached out to the design team, they had a lot of ideas in mind for their 1960s river front property (that they grew up in!!). Furthest from their minds was a complete tear down and remodel. That is just what we did! Down to the slab, the project was a complete over haul!

Facade of the house we completely transformed!

What began as a one story, modest 3 bedroom, grew to this vaulted ceiling beauty! Taking 2 years to get from conception to completion ensured that every inch of the home was built with great pride and intent. Environmentally green products were used where ever possible and the latest technologies in construction were applied to ensure all codes and regulations were met, or in most cases exceeded.

The clients relied on the design team to create an interior that reflected their laid back lifestyle but would exude a sense of elegance and style. The design evolved to become a “coastal industrial” take off by using a mixture dark metals combined with white washed wood finishes. The aqua-blue color palette creates an open-airy feeling which makes the perfect setting for casual entertaining.

From first entry, beautiful hardwood floors run throughout the home with tile accents in the wet areas. One favorite design element is the marble herringbone floor installed in the master bathroom. Every room in the house has a view to the river, making for prime real estate when you see all of the plush seating. The design team also specified light-weight dual roller shades on the windows for maximum daylight and dolphin spotting.

To the client, the kitchen was the most important element because they like to cook. To create their dream kitchen, a lot of thought was put into every element. Cambria quartz and a taupe stone backsplash make the perfect backdrop for any chef, while a well organized cabinet system is enough for anyone to get excited about making family dinner!

Beautiful kitchen with plenty of room for circulation! Rich countertop adds a sophisticated addition to the space!

Some of the beautifully custom-designed elements in the home include the barn door, master bath vanity, stair railings and guest loft bar. Working with the builder, the design team and the client were able to create pieces that will begin and grow with the home.

Master Bathroom Vanity creating contrast with the focal while adding a unique touch to the space!

A bathroom is a special place in a house, where we renew ourselves and get ready for our routines. It is wonderful to start the day happy and full of energy after a fresh shower. Likewise, there is nothing quite like coming home from a long day and relax after a hot shower! Therefore, we were committed to dedicate this space to inner peace, serenity and positivity. Beauty lies in details; thus, to achieve a bathroom that evokes nature and positiveness, we carefully pick stunning natural stone tiles to create a focal point for the shower! We simply had to highlight our selection of clean and warming tones of ceramic tiles for the master bathroom.

We used a mixture of neutral tiles to create a natural feeling and the illumination highlights the stone and tiles! Dark Floor tiles contrast with the natural stone and resembling real nature!

Easy, huh? 

Our Livable Library that we created for the VanGundy family in Lake Mary, Florida was selected for the Unusual Spaces category. We are honored to be among some amazing designers from around the country.

What makes the VanGundy’s library a truly Unusual Space is the mashup of streamlined architecture and the colorful blankets and pillows that add a contrast that brings warmth to the room.

Just look at these pictures, don’t they make you want to curl up with a good book?

Another surprise in this unusual library is the hidden room that lies just behind the custom bookcases which is a true delight for both old and young.
