Casual beach vibe with subtle Polynesian accents

Services Provided

Complete remodel of 1970’s era condominium unit near the beach.  This place got a complete face lift and some restructuring.   We worked with the client’s contractor to replace all kitchen cabinetry and appliances and update the main bathroom’s tub and tile.  We designed a custom wine bar utilizing an odd shaped and unused corner of the client’s dining room.  Extending the kitchen counter to wrap around to the bar area provided more seating for guests and the ability to entertain while cooking. We created hidden storage space by adding cabinet door openings under the stair case and more under a custom window seat overlooking the complex’s pool.  Services included selection of all furniture, lighting, flooring and accessories to the client’s taste.  Custom woven wood Roman shades add to the casual vibe bringing nature inside the home with overdoing it.

This bachelor retreat is perfect for one while providing ample space for entertaining and still inviting for a future partner.

Client Testimonial

I want to say to Yvonne from ‘Diamond in the Rough’ a huge thank you for creating my dream house, for making it affordable, so much better AND way beyond what I could ever imagine!

Every single person who walks through the door is blown away by how incredibly gorgeous the place looks. Yvonne did everything. She designed my wine bar, selected all kitchen appliances, the most amazing granite counter, bathroom tiles, all paint options throughout the house, and everything from recessed lighting to cabinet/doorknobs to window coverings. All to my taste!

Coordinating styles/colors, selected furniture and the finished product could be in a magazine!
