Before and After: A Villas Del Mar Residence, from Traditional to Contemporary

Lynn Yellen, Design Director of Ladco’s Resort Design Group, recently re-vamped a custom residence located within the community of Villas Del Mar at Palmilla. (Entrada 75 is currently listed, view the listing here.) Once traditional, today this single-level, four-bedroom villa features an air of freshness and chic coastal contemporary style.



“Updating Entrada 75 was a delight,” said Lynn. “By refreshing the wall colors, updating door archways and restyling with new furniture we were able to change the overall aesthetic and feeling of the home.”

Lynn’s team is based in Houston, Texas. Her relationship with Villas Del Mar spans nearly 20 years, with Ladco designing more than 100 homes within the community just adjacent to the One&Only Palmilla. Lynn and her team handle everything: design, construction, project management and logistics from start to finish. Ladco sources its products from the nearly 50k square foot showroom in Houston, Texas and from a myriad of other international sources and artisans.



“Working with Lynn was fantastic,” said Stephanie Baldwin, Homeowner of Entrada 75. “She provided ideas and direction, but really took into account our thoughts. The process was seamless and the final reveal was incredibly exciting. We couldn’t be happier with our ‘after’.”

The Baldwin’s entire home, including outdoor areas, were updated with a fresh, clean and chic aesthetic.



“We created a soft, coastal look,” said Lynn. “We brought natural light into the home by exchanging the heavy front doors with double glass doors and removing the dark woods. We updated the furniture and utilized a color palette that reflects the sea and environment. We also upgraded the kitchen, really making it a focal point of living space.
