Hampton Hall Primary Residence

A cosmetic update to a modern home contrasting the sweet southern feel of Hampton Hall. The goal of the home was to bring forward sophisticated pieces that paid homage to the contemporary feel of the home while also respecting it's location, sitting right in the marshlands.

Palmetto Bluff Vacation Home

This was a simple cosmetic update to an existing home on the coast. As a Junior Designer, my role was focused on most selections, to be approved by the Lead Designer. Selections were made based on space size, user intention, and the client's style. The client wanted this vacation home to be a retreat away from the real world, with soft elements and comfortable pieces.

Ladies of Lineage

Luxury bridal boutique in Charlotte, NC.

While I worked as an Interior Design Assistant at Sarah Catherine Collective, I had the opportunity to work on this awesome project! My involvement was focused on the Programming and Conceptual Phases, allowing me to assist heavily with designing the floor plan and custom case goods. The interior was kept clean and streamlined, to enhance the consumer's shopping experience and showcase the beautiful dresses.

An Open Oasis

Concept for a Living Room Renovation

This inviting living room features Segreto Plaster walls, vaulted ceilings, a seamless fireplace, and Brazilian teak wood floors. Featuring furniture and fabrics from Barbara Barry and Billy Baldwin’s various collaborations with different companies, as well as Alexander Girard’s textiles. The rug, wallpaper, and all the fine art pieces are from The Jungalow, most of it inspired by the work of Justina Blakeney. Light filters through skylights and tapestries that hang from wood beams, cascading whimsical patterns on the walls. Dark green plaster and shelves, displaying familiar memorabilia, create an accent wall leading to another room through an arched opening. The room evokes Billy Baldwin through use of hard edges, as well as a dark accent wall, and the layering patterns of fresh, frank, and forceful hues. What led the design was Barbara Barry’s ideal that everything becomes a composition. Lastly, the interior channeled Alexander Girard’s use of colorful, whimsical objects and international folk art.

Comfortable in One's Skin

Concept for a Primary Bedroom based on the mythology of Gullah Geechee’s Haint.

Haints sneak into their victim’s home while they are asleep, when a human is most vulnerable. These haunting beasts take human form during the day and possess their victims at night so an open closet with mannequins is on display, as well as a faux animal hide rug below the bed, to represent the human “skin” Haints wear. A ceiling fan is added above the bed to mimic the air or “breath” Haints steal from their victims. A Primary Bedroom was chosen because a bedroom is arguably one of the most intimate rooms of a home. This one in particular features its own porch/ balcony. The porch ceiling as well as around the bedroom ceiling are painted blue, a color that tricks and wards off Haints. The spirits cannot cross water and are deceived by the color of the sky, thinking it is taking them farther from their victim. The Gullah Geechee’s traditions were brought to the south from Africa and are now most prevalent in Charleston and Savannah. Because of this, elements of those cities are included in the interior such as ‘Savannah Grey Brick,’ creating an indoor fireplace, and a porch. The ‘haint blue’ paint tradition was first done with the indigo crop so this is used as inspiration for the art, florals, and paint colors. For aesthetic purposes, the bed is centered on a wall between two side tables. Some depictions of Haints show a female figure with a dark red face and black eyes. These colors are utilized in the accents of the interior such as artwork and florals.  Research for this space included primary suite interiors featuring dark accents and antiqued elements, specifically in the south.

Social Media Influencer Retreat

Residential Project
Westhampton Beach, NY

The project was a Social Media Influencer Retreat in Westhampton, NY, hosted by Kravet. This was a collaborative project between interior design students on the entire house, except for the Master Suite, in which each student was required to design themselves. Our group consisted of Natasha Nongrum, Chelsea McLaurin, and myself. The concept which guided this entire project was a quote from our client in one of his Instagram posts that translates to, "Always like it was the first time." Because of our client's Italian background and influence on his social media presence, we named each room on the First Floor with an Italian word that represents what the mood of the room is. As stated, this was a collaborative project, so almost every part of the project was worked on by all three of us. One part that I took lead on was curating the art for the whole house. Each piece of art was chosen carefully based on size, medium, country of origin, color, and meaning in relation to the concept/ client. Some of the art has been altered to better suit the project, as if each piece were "commissioned" for the client. Artists used for inspiration were Grant Schexnider, Maria Julia Bastias, Tokujin Yoshioka, Add Fuel, Lourdes Almeida, Peter Gentenaar, and Josep Moncada. I also took the lead on designing the Foyer and Kitchen, as well as parts of the Pool and Backyard. Renderings were done using Revit and Enscape, an extension of Revit. All of the fabrics in this project are Kravet. Scott Kravet and several members of the company came to our class' final presentation. Our group was presented with a Certificate of Participation for Design of Distinction from Kravet.

Jewelry Store Headquarters

Retail Project
Kristen Baird Jewelry
Savannah, GA

 The project was a flagship store for a jewelry company in Savannah, GA. The client came in and answered all the questions we had for her, which was so helpful. The concept stemmed from her talking to us about the sunsets in Lacoste, France, where she had her atelier. The sun has set before the human eye sees it and the reason for that is due to the light’s wavelengths being bent over the sphere of the earth by particles in the atmosphere. This process is called refraction. Light going in one direction and being shifted in another direction is what drove the design of this project. Seeing a sunset although it has already set, because of refraction, is like the reason someone gives someone a gift to remember them or the moment by. A perfect example would be the gift of an engagement ring or wedding ring, representing a moment in time, even after the moment ends. This concept was brought into the design in various ways, such as how the floor plan was arranged. The Point of Sale was designed to resemble the way light comes in one point and shifts out in other directions. This is the triangle shape repeated throughout the design. Triangular modules are used in all the jewelry displays to hold each piece. Large triangles are also seen on the sides of the Color Bar and the Point of Sale that are slightly concaved in. The Color Bar was also designed with the concept of shifting light. Not only do the three sections shift from the typical “L” shape but they also vary in height to continue the concept as well as incorporate Universal Design.
