THE PROJECT: Overhaul the garage with a custom installation focused on efficient storage. “I like to keep the garage as neat and clean as I keep my car,” McCall says.
THE ONE WISH: Design details to match his new Porsche, a 2018 Carrera S 911 in carmine red. “I’ve driven Porsches for 10 years,” he says. “I like red and thought it’d be neat to have a garage decked out to match.”
THE SOLUTION: First, Carter tackled storage with wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling cabinets. Then she added strategically placed accent doors and drawers in Rojo, a high-gloss red, to pop against the unit’s neutral finish—and match the Porsche. “The red we carry, Rojo, ended up being perfect!” she says.
THE RESULT: A clean, masculine garage space with plenty of storage and an unexpected pop of color as stunning as the sportscar inside. “When I came for the install, I was literally speechless,” says Carter. McCall agrees: “I smile every time I go into the garage. And my neighbors always comment on how cool it is.”
BONUS: A row of can lights above the storage unit illuminates the space and maximizes the dramatic visual impact.
