Welcome to the all new Tortoiseshell Interiors website! It is so exciting to share with you some of my projects, challenges and discoveries. I’ll also keep you apprised of new design trends, colors and tips on decorating.  Every project is a fresh “canvas” in which I have the pleasure of creating a beautiful personalized interior image.

The current project featured is a custom home on Lake Butler in Windermere. My initial design inspiration started with the two pantry doors in the kitchen.

I wanted them to feel like old screens doors one would find at a flea market or antique store. I painted them an expresso brown, had them “beaten up” and then added copper screen and bronze hardware.  Then lanterns were added inside the pantries for functionality, but also ambience.

The rustic, yet refined element carried throughout the house with bronze fixtures and lighting.

‘Til next time ….
