There’s a lot going on at Amy Vermillion Interiors! We are working on several renovations and when I added up just the bathroom and kitchen projects it came to 2 kitchens and 12 bathrooms. That would be some house if they all were under one roof! I feel extremely grateful to have my wonderful clients and I’m really enjoying working on these jobs. So grab a cup of coffee my friends because I’m “update dumping” today.
We have had quite a few installations and haven’t had them professionally photographed but here is one I snapped with my iPhone. We recently finished a mudroom for a client and I think it turned out great! Her sweet girls have a place to sit and change shoes, hang up their coats and stow their back packs. I love the wallpaper, floor and paint color we chose. And of course, I am crazy about the cabinet hardware…it’s the jewelry on the cabinets–please don’t ever think it’s an inconsequential detail when making your selections!
Not too long ago I posted about this 1982 house that I am working on…we are renovating the entire thing and I am loving every second. Remember this sweet kitchen with its amazing lighting, kitchen carpeting and laminate cabinets?
Ding, ding…here come the chainsaws and sledgehammers…
Hey kids…look what’s under that heinous kitchen carpeting! Why it’s gen-u-ine Southern antique heart pine floors. Yes, I can see why someone would want to cover those floors with “carpet” from the 2nd hole at Par King Mini Golf. Awesome for us!
And do you recall the Jim Morrison/Hollywood Hills c.1973/Native American Tribute bathroom?
Well it’s a good thing these nice folks sold their house to my client…because it was a matter of DAYS before this man fell straight through the floor when he sat down to use the commode. The sub floor was rotten all the way down to the pipes. Yikes!
Joan Collins’ bathroom is getting a new look too…
Thanks to my GC and his team of hammer swingers, this is what it looks like now…
Here are some of the marble and slab selections for that bathroom. I think it will be quite handsome and very different from 1982 House.
Personally, I’m not sure why you couldn’t wear the marble mini brick pictured above as a chic cuff? Hello, look how fantastic this is on me…(wink).
We decided to put a second story on part of the house…it was a smart call considering the square footage and the neighborhood. Here is what it looks like in the inside…
And here is the shed dormer going up on the outside. It will be finished with a metal roof and add to the overall look of the house. The current roof everywhere else is cedar shake but because of the pitch of the new roof on the dormer we have to use another material.
I am designing all the cabinetry in the house and using the original doors and detail as inspiration. The white door on the left is a mock up that my cabinet maker made for my approval. It’s not quite there yet…I am changing the flute detail a bit but it’s getting there. The door on the right is original and we are saving as much of it as possible.
Remember this gorgeous faucet? I truly loved it. There was only one in the house and it was in the guest bathroom. My client hated it so I was getting ready to dispose of it and I posted the picture on Instagram hoping someone would love it as much as I did.
And someone did. The fabulous and very talented Eddie Ross of Better Homes and Gardens saw my post and it is now in his loving and restorative hands. Trust me, if anyone can make this chic little faucet return to its glamoured past, it’s Eddie.
Here are some other selections we are using…
Let me introduce you to my design assistant, Lindsay!

All kidding aside, Lindsay has been a great addition to Amy Vermillion Interiors.
Well, that’s it for now my friends. Please feel free to drop us a comment or an email! I love to hear from all of you–it makes my day. I hope you have a wonderful week.
Oh and here’s one last picture from last week…it’s me wearing a Beans’ designed crown (which, quite frankly, everyone should own). No further description is necessary. It’s another thing Lindsay does–takes super important pictures to document our work.
