A Stylish Home Elevator

I recently designed a four story beach house in Juno Beach, Florida and the homeowners wanted an elevator.  I worked with the builder to create something that matched the rest of the home. We wanted to elevator to have a fun, designer vibe, because why not?  There is no reason that an elevator should be boring.

The elevator I created is as beautiful and fresh as the rest of the home. The color palette of blues and creams is consistent with the entire space and many design elements from the rest of the space are echoed here.

I started with a fun text treatment on the door of the elevator, added some beautiful millwork in a crisscross pattern under the railing and installed some mirrors. Who doesn’t love a little touch up on their way upstairs? :). Even the ceiling has millwork and flattering lighting, of course!

I think the flooring is my favorite part. We did a large statement hand painted tile, that we also placed in the laundry room for consistency.  Its a nice little surprise when the elevator door opens.
