Caroline Burke Designs
and Associates 

Describe the featured project.

Last year we had the fortunate opportunity to work with a wonderful couple from Texas on the remodel of their townhome by the beach. Over the year the home was transformed into a sophisticated, modern beach home. The fabrics and colorways are mainly couture fabrics with a casual, elegant feel. This is comfortable sophistication at its best. The furniture and area rugs were custom-made to suit our designs. Collaborating on this project was truly a fun, creative and absolutely positive experience of 2020.

Tell us about your business and your specialty services.

Caroline Burke Designs is a luxury interior design company. We specialize in creating beautiful, comfortable homes for our clients. My team has a positive “can-do” attitude, and we get the job done beautifully. Whether we are the designers working with the build team to design your home from the bottom up or if we are hired to furnish your home, we collaborate with our clients and create the perfect spaces for them. It’s always our goal to create a home that our clients love to come home to and are proud to entertain in. We provide excellent customer service and high-quality products.

Build new or remodel?

We collaborate on the designs of new builds and create new build packages for our clients’ builders. We also often work on remodels. The process is different; however, we enjoy working on both new builds and remodels to create the home that the clients dream of having.

What are some interesting requests you’ve received from clients?

A pool that retracts so children can play, soundproof rooms, built-in dog kennels, theme-inspired rooms and hidden rooms. Truthfully, if you can dream it, we can build it … and we have!

In what ways does your firm focus on sustainability?

We are known for our timeless and elegant design in numerous styles. We focus on luxury interior designs that last and in 10 to 15 years from now will still look amazing. I still get compliments on homes we designed 15 years ago. They are still current and look great.

Tell us about the backyard of your dreams.

Well, if we are talking dreams … I would love a large yard overlooking the ocean tiered with gardens of flowers and citrus groves. Raised planters of herbs and vegetables. Olive trees and water features are a must. I love garden art and statues, so I would have a collection sprinkled throughout! It would all be designed in a comfortable, casual, fabulously Provence-esque way.
