Project Favorites: Point Clear

The first signs of warmer weather are here! Early spring flowering trees have already leafed out, daylight savings time is in play, spring break is this week! How many of you were lucky enough to head south to warmer waters for Spring Break?

I'm having thoughts of the bay breeze and how nice it is this time of year in Fairhope. On the southernmost 'point' of the east side of Mobile Bay, still officially within the city of Fairhope, there is a short stretch of bay shore, known as Point Clear. This is a special place steeped in history and continues to enchant those who have spent time at The Grand Hotel, walked the scenic boardwalk (part boardwalk/part sidewalk/part beaten path), taken in the sights and sounds of the native flora and fauna while waiting for an epic sunset.  I can go on, but... suffice it to say, being in the warm Alabama gulf coast air of Point Clear takes you to another place.

When I was approached to assist with the interior finishes and design of a property being built in Point Clear, I was thrilled. My client is an artist.  She has a wonderfully unique way of seeing color and texture.  While the goal was to stay true to the 'Old Bay' architecture, the interiors imbue simple elegance while embracing the juxtaposition of muted pastels and bright saturated colors seen together in the bright light of the bay.

This house was recently featured in Alabama Magazine - read the article and take a closer look around the home!
















I am fortunate to have helped articulate and implement what defines this house as my client's home away from home.  Happy Spring Break, Y'all!
