Fairview Modern-Mediterranean Mansion Makeover

Of utmost importance to this client was a home boasting an elegant vibe – highlighting sophisticated furnishings without pretension – but with little-to-no-maintenance. Throughout the house, the designers incorporated performance fabrics that are sustainable for pets and children, offering an elegant ease that transitions from outdoor to indoor. They also focused heavily on the convenience factor, bringing the home deep into technology with media seating for a true media room; custom motorized shades in every room; TVs that reveal with a simple push of a button; and even desks that transition from a standing to seated position. Of course, you can’t have convenience without some glamour, and a former sitting room that was converted into a dressing room will make any woman’s eyes pop with envy. The to-die-for closet features power rods that float down for easy reach, a dressing mirror with wings that fold in and LED lights that change colors, a bench covered in couture fabric for distinctive perching, decadent carpeting and tons of shoe storage.

Decisions....decisions... The very best one we made was selecting Nicole Arnold Interiors to give our home a complete redesign, transforming our traditionally furnished Mediterranean style home to modern. In essence, Nicole and her team took us from Mediterranean to “Moditerranean" and we are beyond thrilled! Within a period of five months, Nicole and her staff completely transformed our entire home (inside and out) through significant renovations including floor restorations and replacements, all new lighting, furnishings, accessories, window coverings and outdoor living spaces. Since we were doing a total transformation, Nicole arranged for an estate sale and in just a few days, everything was gone! She and her team immediately went to work, setting up shop in our now empty home. For the next few weeks, artisans, craftsmen and tradesmen were on site working directly with Nicole to stay on track, on time and on budget. Everyone from contractors to workrooms were selected based on the highest levels of craftsmanship and expertise. All were seasoned professionals who shared Nicole’s meticulous attention to detail.

I cannot stress enough how smoothly and seamlessly the entire project went. Nicole and her team are thoughtful, talented designers and every square inch of our home reflects that. Our home is elegant and tranquil. The art and furnishings are perfect. The outdoor living areas take advantage of our views. We enjoy our home now more than ever before and we could not be happier. But here’s the best part of the entire project; she makes the experience effortless. We felt informed and comfortable that she had our project completely under control throughout the entire process. Milestones were achieved on time, every time and the orchestration of all the moving parts of this complex and multi-tiered project was handled seamlessly. If you need an accomplished designer and business-minded design firm, Nicole Arnold Interiors is the right choice. You will be absolutely delighted with the professionalism and creativity Nicole and her team bring to every part of your home. Highly recommend!
