Motel Makeovers, Marina, Boat Club, Cottages and Vacation Rental Redos by Jessy Moyer

Yes, I know I haven't written since April...where does the time go?  Be prepared for a long but fun post.  Gabrielle graduated high school and is getting ready to leave for college in a few weeks -- Wahhhhhaaaaa!  Thankfully, we had a great family trip before she heads out.  I'm not sure I'm ready but thankful I have some amazing projects to keep me busy.   

As you saw from the last post, it was an honor to be a part of the TruexCullins design team for the MOTEL MAKEOVER in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and their website is live.   Check it out... Mountain Modern Motel.   The MARINA store remodel at Gaines Marina, in New York is also finished! Visit their facebook page for all the fun things they do. 

I love that Motels are making a come-back.  Bringing these oldies but goodies back to life is one of my favorite things to do.  I'm currently mid-way through a ROADSIDE MOTEL renovation in Okemo, Vermont.  Stay tuned.

Looking for a VACATION RENTAL in Lake Fairlee, Vermont?  You will love the new kitchen design and the fabulous birch tree wall in the bedroom (already a huge hit on Instagram).  We are just days away from the completion of the remodel. I'll post the rental link when it's up! 

The remodel makeover continues at BASIN HARBOR CLUB  with more updated cottages to dream away in and the BOAT CLUB BATHROOMS were fun to design.   Check out the renovated LODGE ROOMS, LOBBY and CLUB ROOM...so much to see and do at BASIN HARBOR CLUB .  

STYLING WORK for Gardener's Supply Company, Eating Well Magazine, and Verilux Lights has continued to inspire me...check out the pictures below.

Next...I'm about to dive into a VACATION HOME renovation (barn converted into home), cool designs have begun for a TAP ROOM for one of your favorite Vermont specialty beer companies, early-phase of design connecting for a complete makeover for an INN in Maine, and beginning a RESTAURANT project for an incredible chef!   Don't forget to come and visit me at my upcoming DIY and Design PRESENTATION for the next COUNTRY LIVING MAGAZINE FAIRS (September in Ohio).   

PHEW...this should keep me from crying in my soup when Gabrielle packs her bags for college.   Who am I kidding?   I'm going to bawl like a baby.   

But enough words -- here are a few fun iPhone pics.  (Professional shots coming soon).

CREATIVE CONSULTING, MOTEL MAKEOVER in JACKSON HOLE by Joanne Palmisano

What an honor it was to be asked once again by the amazingly talented folks of TruexCullins Architecture and Interior Design to be a part of their interior design team for a motel redo in Jackson Hole. Formely known as The Painted Buffalo Motel, it is now the amazingly cool, Mountain Modern Motel. This project was right up my alley-- budget-friendly project with fun and funky ideas, including reusing some of the materials already in the building. Thank you to Kim Deetjen and the entire team at TruexCullins and the folks in Jackson Hole for having me play a key role in this design process. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product this summer. Wait till you see the LOBBY too!  #motel #makeover #consulting #design #budgetfriendly #Jacksonhole #salvage #reuse #hip #lodging

How Much Fun MAKING These DIY's for Apartment Therapy by Joanne Palmisano

I was thrilled to get a call from Apartment Therapy and their sister site, Kitchn, asking me to help them with some easy DIY's for their client Folgers. I headed down to NYC for a few days (with a suitcase full of felt, glue guns, and other craft goods) and we made three fabulous DIY's together. Their team is amazing, professional and fun. I can't wait to work with them again. Want to see the videos and the step by steps. Just click on the links (yes, still trying to figure out how to link a picture--hay--I have other skills!) Joanne

Pottery Barn Inspired Holiday DIY Decor by Joanne Palmisano

Who doesn't love flipping through their Pottery Barn catalog when it arrives in the mail. I do. It is so fun to see the amazing styling and design ideas. I especially love their lighting -- which I buy for many clients --and their holiday decor is always a blast to check out. So I made a few things that reminded me of their great holiday style -- using some yarn, fabric, pine cones, acorns...and some other goodies I found -- I created a Do-It-Yourself holiday wreath, mantel decor, table settings  and personalized custom made wrapping paper!  Hope you have fun making some of these too! Happy Holidays... DIY style!  HoHoHo...Joanne

Pom Pom Garland -- how much fun was this to make with my mom and daughter.

It is so easy to make an acorn cap heart. All you need is a drill and a stiff piece of copper wire. Add in some vintage brackets, pieces of old porch post (sprayed gold) and some vintage metal fencing and mini wheel -- and voila -- you have a gorgeous country living display.

Old jewelry pieces turned into ornaments. I did this DIY's for DIY NETWORK. One of the many holiday projects I did for them.

Table decor inspired by an apothecary look...These acorn lights are from Gardener's Supply Catalog -- a company I style for. Love them!!  

On my trip to Florida a couple of weeks ago, my Mom and I went shell hunting.  We could not believe our luck when we found all these (it was after the super moon...). Add some faux leaves and berries and created a fun Christmas table display for her Florida home.

A friend and I went out into the woods and got some vines, cut them down and wrapped them around a wooden floral form with wire. Then I sprayed it all black and hung some plastic spiders off of it...Seriously simple! Halloween wreaths...gotta love it!

This is truly an ancestor of mine. Not sure who it is...my Mom would know...Anyway...all I did was print it out with a vintage look (just changed the saturation of the color) and then squeezed in some moss and a spider than slide it all back together. This is at the entrance way so when the neighbors come by, they grab a cookie and a look at my genetic history!! :)

I call this my nightmare catcher. You can make them from an old bicycle tire rim, a vintage dollie painted black, some yarn and scraps of fabric. Hang them in the trees around the house, great for a Halloween party.

This Halloween Skull wall hanging took me less than 2 hours. I used a scrap of plywood we had lying around-- painted it black and then outlined a skull head in chalk, then using my drill, screwed in screws (only 1/2 way) and then wrapped the screws in orange yarn! Is there glow-in-the-dark yarn? Hmmmm...that would be cool too!

The Making of a Giant Wall Mural -- Ice Cream Scoops, of Course! by Joanne Palmisano

The final shot -- Photography by Susan Teare

The final shot -- Photography by Susan Teare

I'm so excited that after years of dreaming about doing this design idea -- I actually got to do it in a recent project -- a giant wall mural. And even better, I got to do it with ice cream. 

So how it began. Tim Williams, the owner of Archie's (a burger restaurant that I also designed the space for) asked me if I was ready to design an ice cream shop next door. Of course I was ready! HELLO! I was born ready...

First, I collected antique ice cream scoops wherever I went. If I was at a fair, I picked some up...at a volleyball tournament and stopping by an antique shop, I got some. It was easy because, for my salvage, vintage design presentations and book signings, I was at a lot of these places shopping anyway. It was fun to have a particular item to search for.  

Once I had them all, I picked out anantique board from my large board/prop collection -- I use a lot of these for backdrops for photo shoots. Then I laid the scoops on the board and marked their exact positions with a pencil dot under them.

Tim made some sample batches of the HOMEMADE ice cream to be used in the photo shoot. He wanted to make sure it was his ice cream we used and not just the flavors he was selling.

Then Susan Teare, my dear friend and photographer, came down to my house and we did some math -- or to say -- LIndsay Raymondjack (who photo-shopped the picture) and Kevin McGrath at Offset House (who was printing it) -- did the math. You see -- we could not take it as ONE giant picture--because where were blowing this up to 20 feet by 5 feet -- so the photo would have been too pixiilated (spelling?) and the picture was being put up as panels. So once the size and DPI was determined correctly, we went to work on measuring the board and putting everything into position.

IMG_0477.JPG

AND -- the ice cream would have melted by the time we scooped the last few. 

So with a board that was taped off in sections -- we took photos of 3-4 scoops at a time. We had to make sure we slide the board down the floor on the EXACT same line.

Once the 4 pictures where done --Lindsay worked her magic (took out some board holes and splits, and fixed any small stray pieces of ice cream, etc... then got the images to Kevin at Offset and he then made sure they all lined up (with a small overlap on each picture to line them up. 

IMG_0966.JPG

Then they where hung -- very carefully.

IPHONE PIC...Soon better ones to come of the whole shop :)

VOILA! By far the biggest hit in the shop (after the ice cream of course).

HAVE FUN MAKING YOUR OWN WALL MURAL--Thanks to OFFSET HOUSE, VERMONT, SUSAN TEARE and LINDSAY RAYMONDJACK and Tim Williams, THE SCOOP, SHELBURNE, VERMONT.

My best, Joanne

REFRESHING BEDROOMS...Small Changes...Big Results by Joanne Palmisano

As the somewhat-still-new decorator/designer for Basin Harbor Club, I love the opportunity to make some refreshing changes while keeping the charm of this 130 year old family-owned resort on the shores of Lake Champlain. Slowly and carefully, we are going through all the cottages, lodge rooms and public spaces and making changes that will reflect what Basin Harbor Club is, while ensuring we enhance today's guest's experiences. This winter (when the resort is closed) we got to work on a few of the lodge rooms, cottages and the town hall. Hope you enjoy these pictures of the simple transformations of a couple of the bedrooms -- one in the lodge and one in a cottage. Visit Basin Harbor Club (www.basinharbor.com). It is truly an amazingly unique and special place!

This guest lodge room is very cute -- and has all the guests need. Cottage style room overlooking the lake -- but with a few minor changes, it was transformed. 

Same side tables, same bed, same chair, just a few small changes. The wainscoting was added -- which serves as a headboard -- the wallpaper was removed on a new one was put on the bed wall only. The carpet was updated as well as the bed skirt and and the nautical vintage-style lamps really give the room a nice goal. On the opposite walls (painted a calm blue) are old frames found throughout the resort's multiple attics. Photo by Susan Teare.

This is the not the actual before picture (since I forgot to take one) but very similar. Again, such a nice bedroom in one of the cottages -- that is perched on the edge of the lake -- but with some small changes -- big results happened in the Birches cottage.

The side tables were just painted--lovingly referred to as Basin Blue -- the vintage life throws I found at a vintage market -- the lamps are a great nautical look and the Vermont vintage-style map is a great interactive piece for the guests. The platform bed was made by a local Vermont company. Wallpaper removed and a calming tan color brightens the room. Photo by Susan Teare.

Hope you enjoyed the simple transformations...keeping what is so special about Basin Harbor...special!  I'll see you there!

My best, Joanne

The fair is much more than just amazing vintage stuff, crafts, custom made jewelry, specialty foods...it is also filled with workshops, presentations, cooking demos and displays that will really inspire you.
