When these homeowners decided to make their rental property their permanent residence, Group 3 Designs was their go-to source for an extensive renovation. This master suite was completely redesigned to reflect their passions and interests and well-thought-out to be the couples’ sanctuary.
For her, much detail and attention were paid to developing a jewelry organization system with individual drawers and cabinets that lock, along with glass doors and display cases. A nook was carefully carved out for make-up application and storage. It is as if she is stepping into a boutique or salon each time she enters it.
The British couple who most recently hailed from South Africa has an extensive art collection that inspired and coordinated the interior design. The art helped drive the color palate. Note such interesting details as the plum-colored painted ceiling.
The ensuite master bath was completely redone, and the crystal chandelier was inspired by the jewelry collection. The entire suite of bedroom, bath and closet is cohesively designed. With the tub a focal point and heated towel racks, this room feels like a first-class hotel and spa.
