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 of accessories, 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 results of capturing his childhood ethos reflected in the design.
Interior Design Renovation:
A four bedroom house on the top of a hill in Marin County's Kentfield 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 reconfigured 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, computer organizational station and the guest house. By adding cheerful color to their new home the new design 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 views of rolling pasture hills in Pleasanton, California. They choose to start anew by bringing Suzette Sherman Interior design onboard to furnish their full home with all new furnishings. Our design applies the client's love of the color turquoise and their desire to entertain more. We created a most unusual layout for their great room sporting two twenty foot sofas back-to-back allowing a variety of sitting areas to accommodate the full spectrum of their lifestyle; intimate moments alone and entertaining both small and large gatherings of friends. One of the many sitting areas has two wing chairs doubling as a place where the client can also hold business meeting 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 make for a natural backdrop to furnish the home in both iconic midcentury and unexpected high design furniture pieces. The vast spaces easily accommodate large signature furniture and floor lighting while still retaining the spacial openness. The overall theme is one of earthy materials and colors with touches of bright white interspersed. The natural palette is beautifully in synch with the family's Midwestern roots and the love of the landscape views around them.
Interior Design Remodel & Furnishings:
A bachelor's traditional four bedroom home in Greenwich, Connecticut also accommodates his three children when they return home on occasional nights. He hired us to design the interior of this house as an intentional 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 to instead become a sleek modern kitchen juxtaposed to 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 book shelves 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. This couple with two children, own a notable Napa Valley winery. They entertain often and so the house is always open to friends and associates to come and go. They intentionally chose to not 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, as well as, a party house too. Unique features include a two-toned kitchen, marble master bath, a teal tiled pool, fir beams in many rooms, Italian stucco walls and at the time the largest private wine cellar in Napa Valley. We meshed the interior furnishings with the nature visible through the custom black paned factory windows. Hence the color, materials and patterns Suzette Sherman Interior Design chose were a bridge between the wooded surroundings to flow inside with shades of greens and earth tones. The furniture is a mix of transitional (traditional with a contemporary edge) and contemporary to be in keeping with the cottage style yet reflect their modern lifestyle. We used a variety of woods to intentionally not outdate the house. Overtime the furnishings will age well and someday, as part of the house, wonderfully pass from generation to generation. The clients love their beautiful new home!
