The Big Reveal - Catherine French Interior Design - Chapel Hill

Market and Moss – The Big Reveal

Big design and incredible food go hand-in-hand at the inspired ambiance of Chapel Hill restaurant Market and Moss. We started to dive into this large-scale renovation and redesign last week (check it out here!*) and today we’re showing you all those inside looks here in the last big reveal of this complete transformation. Follow along with us as we give you a peek into all of the beautiful details that made this space complete.

Market and Moss- Restaurant Reimagined

This gorgeous restaurant transformation brought a brand new concept to life, and we are so excited to share how this space was completely reimagined into the vibrant scene that is Market and Moss. If you’re local or you’ve been following us for a bit, you know that we’ve worked with Chapel Hill entrepreneur Annie Johnston, and also worked with her to redesign La Vita Dolce Cafe (home to the most delicious coffee and gelato ever). When she had the vision for a brand new local fine dining restaurant, she approached us about working together again for a perfect custom-designed space. We couldn’t say yes fast enough!

The Modern Coastal Keeping Room

If you’re just joining us now, we’re taking you through our custom design of this light-filled home, owned by an absolutely wonderful couple who also happen to be lifelong beachcombers. Their true “happy place” is by the water, and they wanted some special beach items and maritime charm woven into their custom design. Since this is actually an inland home located on a lake here in North Carolina, keeping the design clean and unique allowed us to create an inspired, fresh take on that beloved and time-honored coastal style. We started with their gorgeous kitchen- you can take a tour here!*, and today we’re moving right along to this cozy coastal-themed keeping room.

Kitchen Design|Modern Coastal Blues

Bringing some modern waterside charm to this crisp, beautiful kitchen allowed these homeowners to connect with their happy place. This modern coastal kitchen design is full of rich blues, just the right maritime touches, and a modern, sophisticated update on a classic style. We can all use a little light and warmth right now in these long days of winter (especially this year!), and we’re here to spread that sunny vibe as we take you on a tour of all the design moments we lovingly created for this home.
