Interior Design Renovation & Furnishings:
Los Gatos, CA
A three bedroom townhouse located close to downtown Los Gatos, designed for a recently divorced bachelor based on the inspiration of the memories of his Danish upbringing. The client purchased his home and hired Suzette Sherman Interior Design to renovate the full house including kitchen, bathrooms, a new stairway and wood floors. We then designed the colorful interiors with a midcentury twist throughout the house down to the final details including bedding, towels, and dishes. In a wonderfully inspired collaboration, we created a great house to start a client's new life. The client loved the way we captured his childhood ethos in the design.
Interior Design Renovation:
A four bedroom house at the top of a hill in Marin County's Kentfield designed for a couple and their two teens. The client's quintessential contemporary Northern California ranch style home has views of Mount Tam, beautiful landscaping, a private guest house and a ball court. By eliminating an unnecessary small fifth bedroom, Suzette Sherman Interior Design configured a winning new floor plan to expand the size of a state-of-the-art kitchen three-fold while also adding a powder room and a breakfast nook. The scope of the architectural project included a redesign of two bathrooms, the master bath, living room, organizational station and the guest house. By adding cheerful color to their new home, Suzette Sherman Interior Design created a beautiful new look that reflected the true spirit of this family's lifestyle.
Interior Design Furnishings:
An empty nester couple seeking a home worthy of the final chapter of their lives find the house of their dreams, an energy efficient LEED built ranch style house located on an ancient rock cropping with spectacular 360-degree views of rolling pasture hills in Pleasanton, California. They choose to start anew by bringing Suzette Sherman Interior design onboard to furnish their home with all new furnishings. Our design incorporates the client's love of the color turquoise and their desire to entertain more. We created an unusual layout for their great room by placing two 20-foot sofas back-to-back allowing a variety of sitting areas to accommodate the full spectrum of their lifestyle, including intimate moments alone and entertaining small and large gatherings of friends. One of the many sitting areas has two wing chairs doubling as a place where the client can hold business meetings in the comfort of his home. The final design is a beautiful place for their new life of leisure. The result is a win win!
Custom Built House & Furnishings:
Mill Valley, CA
This multi-level contemporary custom-built home overlooking a golf course in Marin County is the perfect house for a couple and their two children. The unique features of the house include a curtain wall of glass for peaceful views of the golf course, contrasting black concrete floors and exposed wood rafters. These combine to create a natural backdrop for the home's unexpectedly high-design iconic mid-century furniture pieces. The vast spaces easily accommodate large signature furniture and floor lighting while still retaining the spatial openness. The overall theme is one of earthy materials and colors with touches of bright white interspersed. The natural palette is beautifully in sync with the family's Midwestern roots and the love of the landscape views around them.
Interior Design Remodel & Furnishings:
A bachelor's traditional four-0bedroom home in Greenwich, Connecticut, also accommodates his three children when they return home on occasional nights. He hired Suzette Sherman interior Design to design the interior of this house as a contemporary contrast to the Cape Cod style exterior. Inspired by his love of cooking, we designed the kitchen layout with two islands and floor to ceiling cabinets on both sides. Gone are the old school upper cabinets. Instead we created a sleek modern kitchen juxtaposed against the traditional interior of the house. The cabinets illustrate how working with a stock cabinet showroom, along with a few modifications, can result in a great looking kitchen at a great price. The remodel included blasting open what was a tight kitchen, designing a family area media wall, designing floor to ceiling bookshelves in the upstairs library and creating a cozy living room reading nook. All new furnishings and color serve to integrate both the traditional and the contemporary, making this a one-of-a-kind home fit for a modern life.
Custom Built Home & Furnishings:
Napa Valley, CA
This is a custom-built home in Napa Valley nestled in a hillside and partially surrounded by a small vineyard. Owned by a couple with two children who own a notable Napa Valley winery, the house is always open to friends and associates to come and go. The couple intentionally chose not to have a typical Italian style home, and instead opted for a cottage style to reflect their Midwestern roots. The open floor plan provides both a livable home, and a party house. Unique features include a two-toned kitchen, marble master bath, a teal tiled pool, fir beams in many rooms, Italian stucco walls and the largest private wine cellar in Napa Valley. We meshed the interior furnishings with the natural surroundings visible through the custom black-paned factory windows. Hence the color, materials and patterns chosen by Suzette Sherman Interior Design formed a bridge between the wooded surroundings and shades of greens and earth tones inside. The furniture is a mix of transitional (traditional with a contemporary edge) and contemporary in keeping with the cottage style yet still reflecting their modern lifestyle. We intentionally used a variety of woods in order to avoid outdating the house. The furnishings will age well over time, and someday will pass from generation to generation as part of the house. The clients love their beautiful new home!
