West Indies Resort….AKA the Jarrells’ lovely master suite.
Jon found me online.
Got off the phone and told my hubby, Chris, “Gosh that’s such a nice man”. Little did I know he had a nice wife too!
When I first met them I spent hours walking through their LOVELY home in a cul-de-sac near Scott Lake. We all spilled our ideas and dreams for a multitude of face lifts/renovations that would soon be broken up into phases.
I quickly realized this family was special….grounded in faith….spending time where it counts….making memories and doing life together. Jon and Missy didn’t know it yet, but I was THRILLED to have the opportunity to help them tweak this home.
Their current style reflects an eclectic mix of time worn leathers, British Colonial flairs, simple linens and smoky teal blues. Hearing about some of their pieces makes me know they hold tight to memories and want their home to be a true reflection of their family.
Their home was built in the 70’s and was tastefully done in its time. Past down from the family, the Jarrell’s wanted to make it their own. We dreamed of white 12″ tile being replaced with just the right wood floor, gutting the kitchen, new furniture layouts, a mudroom with all the backpack and shoe cubbies a family could dream of and of course the upstairs master suite. We started there.

We replaced the carpet with the most stunning aged wood with random plank sizes for interest. Just the right shade, their wood floors really complimented their white coastal inspired furniture. After seeing some of their existing antique pieces but knowing they wanted a more clean, modern feel, I used the Jarrell’s existing navy/coral pillows as my inspiration. I felt it brought the timeless sophistication, but kept things clean, bold and simple. An inspiration had been born.
I choose a super soft teal gray “Gray Owl” by Benj. Moore to add a kiss of cool serenity to all of the warm tones which was soon to be. Actually the Jarrell’s came up with this color after my choice went just a hair bolder. I loved it!
My first purchase was the two-toned gauzy drapery panels as I could just see the windows open and these panels blowing in this high end resort. It had just the right two-tones of ecru that I wanted to bounce around the room. The bedding was calming, yet inviting and I chose a glue/gray for the sheets. A multitude of textures and wood tones make this space feel intriguing, exotic and calming. A time-worn putty/gray vintage rug grounded this space.
The bathroom….oh the bathroom! I just love how this turned out. We replaced the old ornate cream lighting fixtures with new one from Fergusons. Added hardware to the cabinets for interest. Bubble baths will never be the same in here….especially with that palm print over the tub. They even have a place to hang their towels now 😉
Missy and Jon.
A master suite is one of the most private spaces, yet you opened it up to me. My sincere hope is that you both experience restful tranquility in your new space, providing you the zeal for life, for marriage, for family.
It’s truly “more than décor”.
HUGE shout-out to Bunch Construction who handled the painting, flooring and larger base boards. Great work, guys!
