Interior Accomodations

I was recently on Spring Break and spent some time at the Breakers Hotel in Palm Beach, FL.
The interiors inspired me. I started thinking about the many styles and accomodations of hotels and the unique interior qualities each location has. Below are a few!
Renaissance Revival Architecture
Reception Area
Intalian Renaissance Interiors
A new trend in travelers destination is has been rising, the themed hotel.
You can stay in a castle themed hotel, or pick your favorite Beatle.

Santa Isabel @ Europa Park
Hard Days Night Hotel

Boutique hotels are often small, offering a unique experience
by providing a more diverse interior space per room.

A home at the Beach!

After almost two years of design work and construction, Schelfe and Associates is pleased to announce the completion of a magnificent home located along the Intracoastal Waterway in North Carolina. This home, built by Harbour Crest Homes features 3 stories of living, impeccable interior detail and million dollar views from all around. The team at S&A provided design for all interior architectural elements, finishes, lighting and millwork and assisted the owners in finishing the interior with custom made draperies and furniture selections.

Spring into Color!

With spring just around the corner, it delights me to think of the spectacular array of vibrant colors that springtime brings and the inspiration it will bring to design!

An enjoyable project that comes to mind, which was inspired by spring, was the 2008 ASID Showhouse room. Caroline, Sarah and I were excited to be selected as the designers for the foyer and upper landing.

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of these rooms…

The grass green trellis wallpaper and clear blue sky ceiling set the landscape, while the turquoise and violet accents throughout the space offers vivid energy, like flowers in a field.

We felt the modern art and accessories polish off the spaces with engaging color, motion and depth.

We thoroughly enjoyed working on this room as a team, and hope you enjoyed our modern interpretation of a cheerful spring day!

March Madness!!!

OK, here it is the second of March, Spring is on the way and we have three inches of snow! Yikes, I guess this is Old Man Winter making a final pass through the South. Anyway they are predicting 70's by the end of the week. Bring on Spring!
Snow or no snow, work and design goes on! This week we are in the process of coordinating the delivery and installation of furniture and draperies for a large custom we have been working on for almost 2 years. The house located on the coast of North Carolina is a magnificent 8,000 square foot home designed in an Italian Mediterranean style. Next week Sarah and I will be spending two days installing and setting up the interiors of the home. Also next week, all the S&A staff will head to the beach for a luncheon which we are hosting for the Owners to thank them for this wonderful project.
See the pictures below of our "massive" snow storm outside our office and some early shots of the house at the beach. Hope to hear from you soon.
