Ocean City’s newest and hottest condo complex is now open on 57th Street, and THE VIEW is spectacular, thanks to Kimmerly Messick and her team at Bethany Resort Furnishings and Donaway Furniture

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This is most assuredly the case with the dynamic duo of Kimmerly Messick of Bethany Resort Furnishings and Dan Clayland of Coldwell Banker in Ocean City, who for nearly three decades have been teaming up to create some of the most appealing waterside condos the region has to offer.

“Whenever I get a new model to furnish, the first thing I do is reach out to Kim,” said Dan, a 30-year real estate pro who’s collaborated with Kim on literally hundreds of projects. “It’s been my experience that furnishings and décor sell real estate, and there is no one who understands that better than Kim. Just as important, Kim has done this so many times that now she’s lightning quick and just as efficient – which is especially important because prep time is often a luxury we don’t have in this business. Plus, her product selection at BRF is really great and can accommodate whatever theme or budget the project may have.”

Kim’s magic formula is that she skillfully combines BRF’s vast $2 million inventory and longstanding relationships with the industry’s top manufacturers with her years of experience. The result is a conversion from shell to showpiece in as little as four days. Kim will also work with a customer individually, to achieve that personalized, customized ambiance.

“We go in with the intention of making every model unit look like a second home,” said Kim, who’s known in the industry as “The Furniture Queen.” “Whether it’s a rental or for personal use, we’ll design, paint, furnish, accessorize and deliver a turn-key unit no matter what the budget is.” 

One such collaboration took place recently at unit 401 of Ocean City’s The View. Once she got the call from Dan, Kim and her crew swooped in, and the whirlwind began. The 1,500 sq. ft. bayfront unit on 57th St. has three bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen, dining room, living room and an enormous 270 sq. ft. deck to fill — and $25,000 with which to do it.

The theme was upscale-beachy, which Kim attended to with a palette of pastels, including navy, aqua, sage and sea-foam green, complemented by clean-yet-cool creams, beiges and off-whites. She used only luxury finishes in the space but never forgot to make it fun. One guest bedroom features a pyramid bunk with a trundle for an extra bed. The space also sports an amazing custom valance that was made out of flip-flops by Kim’s good friend Roxy Wagner. The other guest bedroom boasts white hibiscus decals over a blue mural stripe with white borders, making the space pop with frivolity. Speaking of which, the navy-blue “Happy Place” bathmat is the perfect lighthearted contrast to the opulently no-nonsense master bath, with its seamless-glass walk-in shower, soaking tub and luxe 18-inch ceramic tile. A discreetly placed series of collages, meanwhile, make the long walls more exciting, while bright and bouncy sea-themed throws, along with an array of other handpicked accessories, foreshadow the countless hours of fun and cushy tranquility its occupants are guaranteed to have.

This exceptional unit, fully furnished, may be had for $469,900, including amenities. For those buyers interested in using the unit as a rental property, the third member of this real-estate trifecta is Coldwell Banker’s Candi Noyes, who knows how to get you top dollar for it. If the purchaser of this property says that they first saw it featured in Coastal Style, they’ll receive a $500 gift card to Bed, Bath & Beyond, compliments of The View.
