What we did

Des Peres Coastal Home

Designed by: Marcia Moore

Our clients, a newly retired couple who longed to live on the coast but were tied to St. Louis, hired us to bring the coast inland. We remodeled their entire home with sand and surf as our inspiration. Punches of vibrant Caribbean colors, such as hot pink and turquoise, blend with softer pastels to form a backdrop for West-Indies-inspired furnishings. Original art, much of it beach-themed, puts the finishing touch on this coastal-inspired home. Now, this lucky couple lives at the beach, minus the sand and the hurricanes. Pure fun in every way, this house proves that a “theme” can be done with sophisticated and classic style.

What they said

“When we met Marcia Moore and found out she had lived five years in Key West, we knew it would be a love connection. She instinctively understood the look we wanted to achieve. Remodeling our entire home and changing the décor from traditional to coastal required us to replace nearly everything we had. Marcia was instrumental in our remodel and redesign guiding numerous choices in everything from bathroom cabinetry, hardware, tile and fixtures to overall paint colors, furniture, lighting, carpet, and accessories. She made what could have been an overwhelming decision-making process easy and fun. She was also very mindful of our budget, even down to choosing contractors who were not only professional and reliable but also reasonably priced. We are very happy with our ‘new’ coastal home and absolutely recommend Marcia!” — C.S.
