Kimberly’s Inspiration for 124 Hilltop Dr:

Kimberly Valentino
30A Iconic Homes

“Wanting to mix modern with comfort, and create a style that would be loved for many years was the goal for the design of 124 Hilltop Drive! My inspirations come form allowing nature to speak for itself. I like to use wood and stone in a way that welcomes you home! All the wood inside the home is smooth cypress, unstained and clear coated. The movement within the wood creates a natural art and brings warmth into the room against the white walls.

Two surprise concrete features, the fireplace in the living room and in master shower, take the design to a more modern industrial place. However, they are paired with the wood, allowing what typically should be something cold to actually invite you in to a warm place of comfort. Notice the concrete is also in the fixtures, sinks and of course the entire tile flooring throughout the home. I’m not one to have a repeat in patterns or to stick to one consistent direction. I like to mix it up but make it flow! You will see every room has a design element that would leave people talking, but would also stand the test of time! Each room has a featured wall, very different from the next. The room is then designed around that accent feature to include texture and other various forms of art.

I would have to say my favorite room to work on was the open concept kitchen, dining and living. It gives plenty of space for flow and function. The huge round rattan fixtures were my inspiration pieces for the entire house. The woven fixtures in the kitchen are statements within themselves. I chose to do a straight stack black back splash, again a modern twist. It pairs well with the warmth of the natural cypress cabinets and allows the rattan pendants to pop! Last but not least, the entry stairs and two toned wood wall complete a two story piece of art that blends modern and comfort! Warm and dark, straight and sleek, a one of a kind entry to welcome you home! The art doesn’t stop in this house. I brought in several local artist and a few from afar to add to the design. I love to include others talents into my work to pull the look together. I hope the new owners will appreciate all the forms of art that went into creating this marvelous home. Bohemian vibes with a fair of modern design, it takes an artist to create a canvas! My canvas just happened to be 124 Hilltop Drive!”
