INTERIOR DESIGNRemodel Interior Designer $600,001 - $800,000 Private Residence
Situated in Pelican Bay’s most well appointed tower this residence has been vibrantly reimagined and energized from an unapproachable, formal and closed off space that compromised the sweeping views of The Gulf of Mexico. This was thoughtfully refined to accomodate inviting transitional gathering and living spaces with lively undertones. Playful hues of turquoise, greens, blues and calming cream weave through each room, the use of natural textures like grasscloth wallcovering and oversized area rugs capture the essence of seaside living. We were able to successfully navigate overhauling the kitchen in this unit and open it up completely to the living space; which in some condominiums can be a challenge with structural components restricting the space. The bright kitchen offers custom millwork, a pair of jeweled glass pendant lights and commands a statement with polished Cristallo stone countertops and a textural backsplash made up of Thassos marble and timeless mother of pearl. The dining room focuses on a delicate glass drop fixtures suspended above a warm and neutral solid oak table with grass woven chairs and printed upholstery. The design execution was achieved with open lines of communication, a seamless timeline and the client encouraged a narrative to expand the boundaries of statement pieces and use of color. A prime example is the stunning Palm Beach inspired high-gloss green lacquered library unit and custom desk which the client did not hesitate on creating. Escape to the elegant master suite hints of soothing blue tones reflective of the endless views from the balcony. The master bathroom features a custom vanity with hand carved quatrefoil motif chair encompassing some subtle elegance. Living space and energy is expanded outside to the lanai space complementing the endless vistas of Clam Pass and Gulf. This artful and sophisticated residence is best suited for a casual, practical lifestyle with a twist of spontaneity.
Before we remodeled and furnished this condo, the space had not been touched for twenty years. The materials and details were dark and dated. Heavy, formal, dark furnishings adorned the space while the window treatments were physically blocking the view. The kitchen was walled off and unapproachable. The layout was not functional and left little to be desired.
