My firm, Sheri Peterson Interior Design, was hired in September 2014 to begin initial concepts and planning for the proposed renovation. This 18 month process began with the formation of a renovation committee, accountable to the board. We met monthly with management to review the updates, starting with initial concept and design ideas, very preliminary budget forecasts, and narrowing down the focus of what was required and needed. I focused on selecting materials that complemented all the interior fir, which had aged to an orange hue. The overall palette was selected using warm putty greys, charcoal, and a toned down warm gold. As requested, a bar was designed for the members lounge and new washrooms were created. The area between the stairs and the windows was glass enclosed to increase lounge space. The new bar featured a Garry Oak top milled from one of the course's downed trees. It went into the kiln in the early fall so it could be ready for the spring installation. After the all finishes were selected and rough budgets were estimated, the members then voted on the design. They overwhelming voted yes!
