Architect David Armour and interior designer Jaimie Belew are proud to present the Main Catering Kitchen and Service Lounge at the 2019 SanFrancisco Decorator Showcase. Inspired by Marie Antoinette’s French Beaux-Arts estate, the spaces pay homage to Le Petit Trianon’s classic architecture yet showcase contemporary elements selected to suit the entertainment needs of today’s homeowner. The design duo reconfigured the kitchen floor plan to create symmetry and grace, while organizing the appliances and workstations into functional groups for efficient traffic. The kitchen's west wall features an elegantly appointed new cooking station, with its range as the focal point, opposite a new doorway created in the east wall to open it to the new Service Lounge.

An overall palette of salmon, pistachio, and cream butter bean adds a modern twist to the kitchen’s historic character. The pink-tangerine range gleams beneath its limestone hood, in contrast to the softness of the painted cabinets with their walnut and nickel hardware. Custom-matched to the casework, the refrigerators create a seamless blend. Stone features include all-natural limestone wall cladding with recessed panels and sage-toned countertops by Da Vinci Marble. Adding a historic note to the room is an elegant table-style prep island featuring a Michelangelo quartzite top in rose, cream, sage, lavender, and charcoaled-grey and wide, pedestal bases in hand-carved marble with classical motifs (Da Vinci Marble). The adjoining Butler’s Pantry is outfitted with areas for baking prep, dish storage and wine refrigeration and dumbwaiter service to upper floors. A cubist-style light fixture adds a final modern twist.

Service Lounge
Late-night guests from throughout the house find their way to the Service Lounge to mingle with the chef and crew for the after party. Drinks are stirred, platters of late-night snacks set out, and a jam session starts its crescendo around the stately grand piano. This room was created by combining two smaller, adjacent rooms. One side of the room features an art deco inspired banquette, ideal for lounging and nibbling from a tray on its custom quartzite table. On the other side, a chef’s desk—used for sorting recipes earlier in the night—is now set with barware and glasses. A grand piano stands gracefully in another corner. The hardwood floors in a lacquered, bone-colored finish set off the shellacked-vanilla ceiling. Walls painted in a soft, rosy peach create the ultimate setting for a fabulous evening.

The Powder Room
Across from the Service Lounge, the ground floor Powder Room offers guests a pleasant space to freshen up. Its outer vestibule is adorned in hand-painted wallpaper depicting delicate glassware in classic mauve tones and is lit by a modern cubist-style fixture. Inside, the walls are clad in charcoal grey mirror to create an always welcome, flattering light. The water closet area has been dressed in painted horizontal panels of sunset tones, setting off decorative hand-painted scenes of Versailles. A utilitarian cart serves as a vanity, featuring a luminescent glass-bowl sink in complementing colors and a Cristallo Pink Quartzite top under the sink.

Jaimie works personally with every client to create exquisite, creative and practical designs. Jaimie’s portfolio includes both residential and commercial projects. She customizes her designs to satisfy the needs of her clients while interpreting each project through her unique personal lens.

Jaimie Belew was introduced to the arts at a young age. Her mother, a TWA flight attendant, took Jaimie to Paris at 9 years old where her eyes were opened to a breadth of classical architecture. Jaimie’s father also supported her creative interests as he has architectural training and a passion for photography work. Her parents focused their weekend outings towards education of the arts and culture. Creative stimulation fostered her interest and informed her future. After graduating from a renowned Interior Design program at Arizona State University, Jaimie Belew began to explore more of Europe and immersed herself in its cultures. Mentored by some of the most prominent San Francisco interior designers, Jaimie’s time with them fueled her ambition and furthered her knowledge of the industry. She has now traveled extensively and her love for culture is an undeniable influence to her style. “The authenticity of culture pulls me in. I love to delve into design elements that have a story to tell. Whether it’s the architecture, art, fashion, that’s what fuels my design and enriches my life. The integration of the past with today and our technological future, is what inspires me”

Jaimie’s design sensibility spans through multiple eras allowing her to create designs that are traditional, modern, and contemporary to meet the needs of her diverse clientele. With a great love for antiques and vintage pieces, her work exhibits examples of how she comfortably mixes together the old with the new with the fluidity of her visual language. This enables her to create custom pieces to harmonize a space or concept.

Participating in numerous San Francisco Decorator Showcases over the years, Jaimie had a chance to push the envelope and work outside the parameters of client needs to truly express her creativity. Jaimie is consistently involved in her community and has volunteered in philanthropic projects including the Ronald Mc Donald House where her team created a sanctuary space for people who were in need. Jaimie is embarking on the next stage of her career with great momentum and excitement for what’s to come.
