Elms relied on the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams showroom for plush upholstery and chose Sunbrella fabrics to keep the furniture comfortable and easy to maintain. Accent fabrics and wallpapers came mostly from China Seas. "The scale and colors just went perfectly with the house," says Elms.

One of the clients loves red and can't get enough of it. "Whenever we had a meeting, she'd even be wearing red," says Elms. "We decided to use the color in special spots around the house." The kitchen was a great space to start. Overscale gingham-style fabric covers upholstered benches in an attached casual dining area.

The front of the house doesn't let in as much light as the back and can feel very exposed to the street. Elms had plantation shutters installed on all of the front windows for privacy and left the back windows uncovered.
The kitchen layout was designed with plenty of counter space for food prep, serving and eating. Calacatta marble counters sit at a low height for convenient cooking and baking. The high bar counter is made of Caesarstone. Custom cabinetry and neutral backsplash tile work well with the bright walls.

A deep red bedroom reflects the client's love of the color. A classic white bedspread with subtle hints of blue in a decorative pillow keeps the palette from going overboard.
A wine storage and tasting room filled with custom walnut wine racks is nestled into the bottom floor. A Caesarstone bar and plush barstool provides the perfect spot to enjoy a glass from a favorite bottle.
