TC Millwork's Biggest Before and After 2011

We can't believe it has already been a year since we completed 2010's biggest before and after and now here we are featuring 2011's!  Midway through last summer TC Millwork started work on this fantastic project in Chalk Sound.  The villa had an outstanding location but was much in need of a reinvention and that is just what it received through the eyes of Coast Architects. Here are a few before images:

And a few more images in progress to show just how far this villa has come:


Framing in the pool


Interior


Installing the brand new kitchen and vanity cabinetry

Installing the custom doors leading out to the pool and beach

Six months later, presto chango!  Take a peek at a few after images of the new and improved

 Front of house

Custom built entrance doors and freshly painted bright white interiors and ceilings

New windows ideal for capturing natural light in the lofty great room

Bedroom with patio overlooking the beach

Custom kitchen


I like to think of the pool as the grand finale of this villa and most certainly of our extensive renovation.  It posed quite the challenge considering the limitations necessary for keeping regulated proximity to the beach.  Beautiful design by Chris Davies, beautifully executed by the TC Millwork!


Great way to wrap up 2011 team!  Looking forward to all the 2012 projects, big and small, and all the clients, from frequent to first time, to come! 


Happy New Year!

Wednesday Woodworks - Kitchen Refinish

Kitchen Before

TC Millwork has been hard at work on a few varied projects but only one is ready to share today.  This dark kitchen was a sore spot on an otherwise lofty and light beach side penthouse.  It was well built and had lovely details, it just needed a facelift to take it from dreary to dreamy.


We love the new contrast of the dark counter tops to the creamy kitchen! 

Bon Voyage RL

The last few weeks have been very busy working on a Turks and Caicos Productions shoot for fashion powerhouse Ralph Lauren.   Three separate crews, three incredible photographers, and a bevy of beautiful models (including these pictured pretties above and below).  I was thrilled to welcome home Turks and Caicos native Chrishell Stubbs


TCI is so very proud of this blessed beauty who is as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside.  Her success is justly deserved and we hope she continues to have a dynamic career and do many great things.

So have all these scarfs and sweaters put you in the holiday spirit?  As you may have already guessed you are going to have to wait for the sneak peaks from the Turks and Caicos shoot, which are a little more along the lines of the below, until the campaign launches at some point during the summer.  Stay posted!

Huge thanks to the entire team who traveled to Turks and Caicos from near and far for this shoot, it was a pleasure working with you all.  Ralph Lauren is an American icon and we are pleased to have been a part of this campaign!  Happy Winter solstice!

Art from the Islands - David Gallardo


David Gallardo moved to the Turks and Caicos Islands from his native Barcelona in 1999.  As a professional photographer for brilliant and tropicalimaging he has been capturing the people, places, and natural beauty of this country for over a decade.  I have had the pleasure of working with David on many projects and am very pleased to share a small taste of his varied work here on P & P. 


As a professional underwater photographer/scuba diver David has produced some of the most vivid, incredible marine biodiversity images of what lies beneath our waves.  Please visit worldofoceans to see more.


His love of travel has brought him to many exotic places; Galapagos Islands, Red Sea, Indonesia, and beyond but most of my favorite images are from right here at home (as pictured above), or from our close neighbors such as Cuba  and French Cay (as pictured below).


Aplogies for being incredibly tardy the last few weeks in posting, has been a very busy time for tcmillwork but we hope to share plenty of great news soon!
