Danielle’s reno diary…
Before “When we bought them, both buildings had very little remnants of their former lives, which gave us more permission to explore various design ideas.” During “We made sure we kept the integrity of the original buildings and hunted down recycled materials that were sensitive to their heritage. I think we bought every last teak floorboard and interior lining board in the area! I have always lived by the principle that the building guides the design.”
After “Overall, the renovation process has been very easy and fluid. Whenever we felt overwhelmed, we just broke the job down and did what we could when time and money were on our side. It’s been a wonderful journey and we’re excited and ready to get to the next final step of joining the two buildings.”
Garden goals A raffia hammock from Tigmi Trading hangs from a 100-year-old pine tree – it’s a great spot for the kids to hang out in the garden. The exterior walls are painted in a timber stain called “Palm Beach Black” by Porter’s Paints. French doors allow access to the garden from Danielle’s studio.
