We Won! We Won!

We are so proud to announce that ie: Designs is the winner of two first place awards.  In a recent American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) design competition, ie: Designs received awards in two categories, first place for “Residential Renovation”, and first place for “Product Design”.  We want to share with you a little bit about the winning project.

Nestled on the Atlantic Ocean, this two story 2,500 square foot home features three bedrooms and three baths. This oceanfront home remodel needed several major renovations.  In order to improve the choppy layout we completely gutted and reconfigured the kitchen, master bathroom and closet providing a more appealing flow.  Working within a strict timeframe, along with the engineer and residential contractor, we handled all the interiors and construction for this project.  We pulled it together as scheduled in a mere four months.


We covered all aspects of the remodel including interior and exterior space planning, design, window treatments, furniture and hard surface selections. In order to enhance the relaxed atmosphere, we avoided jarring color changes from room to room. The seamless blend of transitional and contemporary style is perhaps best illustrated in the living area. Our design unifies comfort and intimacy without interfering with the spectacular ocean view.  Take a look at the “Why we are different “page to see more of the beautiful photographs from this award winning renovation.

A crowning point of this job was the custom designed wine cellar built beneath the first story. The home is on pilings, so the cellar was built below the main living space to allow a seamless transition with the rest of the floor.  We used intricately patterned “green” wood flooring from Belgium for the home and on the treads of the cellar’s spiral staircase. We were so pleased that the cellar was the winner in the “Product Design” category.

Wine Anyone????

We are extremely excited to reveal our latest innovative design project!  On our most recent home re-model, we designed a 600 count wine cellar integrated into the client’s foyer floor.  As soon as you walk into the gorgeous oceanfront home you look down into the wine cellar through the custom made 1 1/2 inch thick plexiglass top.  It has a metal, spiral staircase with earth friendly recycled hardwood planks on the stair treads that flow seamlessly from the surrounding floor.
