Gary and Shelley were halfway through their design process when they asked for my help. They had a previous designer make them a colour scheme but were bored with it and thought it was bland and ordinary. They were looking for a design that was based on the American Cape Cod style and would stand out from the usual. My starting point of the design were elements based on the maritime, yachts, ocean, wharfs with greyish weathered de-stressed timbers.
