As any homeowner knows, a fresh coat of paint can completely transform a room. Similarly, a collection of complementary paints can transform an entire home, as Home & Willow demonstrated with their work at the 2022 First Internet Bank Home-A-Rama. The Home & Willow team was eager to join forces with Revkah Design and Carrington Homes to bring a warm yet modern coastal home to the Chatham Hills community.

The Home & Willow team utilized a number of Sherwin Williams colors to bring each space to life. The majority of the walls were painted Sherwin Williams “Natural Choice” with the doors and theater walls in complementing “Caviar.”

“The neutral palette gave us an opportunity to bring in rich caramel leathers and nubby textures throughout,” said Stacy Stater of the Home & Willow team.

The Home & Willow team chose warm and texture-heavy furniture and decor pieces as a juxtaposition to the modern coastal home’s upscale quartzite and chrome fixtures. The combination of these textures and finishes kept Home-ARama attendees intrigued by every space in the home.

The team was most proud of the bourbon lounge and great room design in this home. The base for the bourbon lounge’s moody feel was Sherwin Williams “Rock Bottom.” Home & Willow then placed a leather sectional atop a geometric rug and scattered several textural pillows and throws around the room, creating a quiet and comfortable spot to have a drink. A pedestal in the corner served as a foundation for the bust of Barbados Man – a fun and unexpected addition to the space.

The great room’s design began with a textural rug and unique ottomans and came together when two sofas and chrome framed chairs were added to the mix. The chrome on the chairs tied into the chrome finishes throughout the home, proving that the Home & Willow team didn’t miss a single detail in this home.

While working toward a hard deadline alongside numerous tradespeople can be difficult, the Home & Willow team enjoys the challenge. The team believes in working together to create the harmony needed to get these large jobs done. They believe that harmony rests solely on everyone’s flexibility, patience and kindness – all of which Revkah Design and Carrington Homes offered.

“It was fantastic working with Revkah and Carrington Homes,” said Stater. “They are truly wonderful, hard-working people. We love opportunities to build friendships and long-lasting trusting work relationships.”

The Home & Willow team hopes to continue using Sherwin Williams’ array of colors in future projects, especially the 2023 Color of the Year, Redend Point. The team describes this color as a soft, rustic pink that stays beige enough to be an extended member of the neutral family. Redend Point will pair perfectly with neutral palettes, blending into the color scheme. It can also, however, offer a mauve hue to a room if styled with other pinks.
