Contemporary Transitional In Neutral

JMA Interiors designers Jackie Armour and Taylor Ehrlund brought to life the Vincze family’s vision for their modern British colonial home in Jupiter Hills Country Club – an elegant and comfortable space perfect for relaxing and entertaining.

The project took just under two years from initial architectural concept to being move-in ready. Trusted partner Mitch Miller at Village Architects laid out the shell and interior walls, allowing JMA Interiors to detail the rooms from floor to ceiling (a large portion of the total scope of work when developing a custom home).

The cabana bath successfully combines many different styles, creating a less predictable look with “wow” moments. “It would have been easy to do a rectangular undermount sink,” Jackie noted. “The cabana bath is a fun space and gets lots of use, so we had fun while remaining congruent to the design flow of the home.” For reference, cabana bath flooring is a flattened pebble with tone-on-tone grout. The high wainscotting nods to the British Colonial theme.

In the living room, clean, modern furnishings with a soft neutral palette draw in its guests. An ottoman lives between the sofa sectional pieces to keep the scale of the large space while maintaining intimacy, all while preserving the view of the fireplace and TV wall. The fireplace and TV wall is clad in solid absolute granite, and custom millwork completes the transitional British West Indies style.

Center stage in the primary bedroom is a Restoration Hardware four-poster bed with a custom fabric headboard. The suite opens up to the pool area through tall French Doors with a transom window, highlighted by architectural shiplap accents. Some of Jackie’s favorite features are the lighting, the velvet daybed by Vanguard and the marble table from Arteriors. The club chairs are from Lee Industries, made with custom fabric.

The clients were involved initially with color selections and overall style, but Jackie and Taylor were given free artistic rein from that point forward. For a home of this caliber, Jackie recommends budgeting between $90 – $150 per square foot for fees, construction consulting, finishes, furniture and equipment.

“I love the darker color upstairs in the wainscotting and panel detail. It was such a big space, so we wanted to anchor it. Pulling in that tone also helped warm up the space,” Jackie commented. “I also love the pool area with the gas fire pit. It’s such a great element.”

When asked which design trends she’s crushing on, Jackie responded, “Color! I’m excited to see more people are embracing color. I like to use it on walls and in cabinets, especially in the kitchens and baths. Another favorite design trend is natural stone, like limestone and warmer-toned materials.”

Recently back from a rejuvenating trip to Bryce Canyon and Grand Canyon, Jackie shared that she was inspired by her travels. We’re excited to see how she incorporates her inspiration into future projects.

JMA works all over the county, specializing in Palm Beach, Jupiter Island, Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens and Wellington. They are currently working on a project in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
