Early last spring I was contacted by a local tennis club to provide decor advice for the club house. While my work experience has never involved club houses, I thought I would give it a whirl. The clubhouse had not been updated since the 80's (?) and was in desperate need of immediate changes. Between the clay courts and the wet swimmers, you can just imagine how grimy the old carpet had become.
Here is the design board I created for the space. My initial thought was to replace the carpet with either slate or wood tile in an interesting pattern. I also liked the idea of adding white plank walls for interest and texture. Ceiling fans were on the wish list for the space so I sourced a pair with a more modern feel along with track lighting. Also, there was a set of outdoor furniture that needed new cushions so I sourced new cushions in neutrals and shades of aqua. I don't think the budget really allowed for all of the changes (darnit), but really love this overall look and hope that over time some of these changes will be incorporated.
