Moving to Jacksonville, Florida shouldn’t be a hard task for anyone, but for this young couple with two small children, the architectural of their new home had to feel as warm as their previous home in Atlanta did. For that they hired a well-known Jacksonville interior designer, Andrew Howard from Andrew Howard Interior Design. Known for his ability to transform any space into spaces with color, texture and personality, the results of his work on this project couldn’t be different.
The designer mixed timeless pieces such as a midcentury sideboard the homeowner already owned with fresh furniture such as the woven and banana leaf dining chairs in the breakfast nook. Besides adding beautiful furniture and decorative pieces, Howard designed an inspiring kitchen with beached quarter sawn white oak cabinets. To complete the look, he added vintage brass pendants and a gorgeous white marble countertop and backsplash.
This home combines beauty with an easy approach that asks you to come in, relax and feel inspired.
The exterior paint was chosen from a stucco color, but it’s similar to Wash Basin by Ralph Lauren.
Beautiful window trim and corbels, painted in a deep mushroom paint color, contrasts with the off-white exterior.
An arched entry leads to the front door. The outdoor lighting is by Bevolo. Also, notice the cream white brick exterior with tan window trim.

Lighting is Visual Comfort.

This is what the designer had to say about this beached quarter sawn white oak kitchen: “This was a try-something-new moment where we stepped out of the box.” I particularly think this idea was perfect for this home!
