BAY DESIGN STORE The owners of this charming home in Pelican Bay hired interior designer Jill Kersey of Bay Design Store to bring their vision to life after meeting her during a visit to the store. The family, who also has a beach house on the Jersey Shore, wanted a coastal cottage, bright and inviting yet relaxed. “They envisioned vibrant blues and whites, but wanted to mix in a third accent color which is where the apple green came in,” describes Kersey. “The mixture of blues and greens are so complementary of each other and exude a happy energy.” The entire home was gutted, and the floorplan reimagined, providing an abundance of natural light and a bright and airy base from which to work. Brilliant white Benjamin Moore Chantilly Lace paint throughout works well with custom built-in features and shiplap accents. The space is grounded in a balance of textural elements, including wickers, rattans, and grass cloths. Woven wood window shades draped with custom side panels coordinate with the sofa’s accent pillows. “A tasteful infusion of coastal and sea life accents was important to the homeowners,” explains Kersey. This was achieved through the selection of unique design elements and accessories including a coral and glass chandelier in the dining room, a brushed silver blue marlin mounted in the built-in of the family’s great room, and a whimsical palm leaf wallpaper in the master bedroom.
