With the weather turning colder, we are excited to be working on a renovation/addition to a condo at Lake Martin. Yes, it’s still cold there, but at least it allows us an opportunity to think of summertime fun.
This retreat will have a new kitchen, bathrooms and outdoor living spaces. We are designing a custom banquette for the kitchen and the side porch to allow for lots of seating for family and friends.
Our client’s focus is all about making memories instead of being worried about making a mess, and we couldn’t agree more. The lake is supposed to be a place for less stress and more fun.
With a house full of children and grandchildren, we plan to use a lot of outdoor and durable fabrics.
As you can see below, our color inspirations are gray, plum, taupe and cream.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project. Have a great day!

Have you ever chosen the “perfect” color for a room- or better yet, had a color suggested to you by a friend- only to find out the color looks horrible when painted in your space?
Repeat after me:
“Undertones and lighting play a huge part in how a color looks in a room.”
If you are familiar with my work, you know I mostly mix custom colors for each particular project. I have one client who calls the color in her main living area my secret sauce. Ha!
That being said, here are a few neutrals I consider to be “fail-safe” picks.
Benjamin Moore Classic Gray. I just painted a bedroom in this color and it is BEAUTIFUL. It’s light, warm, and not stark white.
Benjamin Moore Ballet White. This has a slightly warmer tint without being too golden. If you are wanting to cut the yellow undertones such as in a kitchen where you are working with white marble, mix it at half formula. Otherwise, it is beautiful in main living areas.
Benjamin Moore Titanium. This gray has a bit of greenish undertones. Very soft for a bedroom needing a little color.
I hope these color suggestions work for you and your home. If you end up using one of these colors, let me know it looks.
Have a great day, everyone-
