Best Master SuitePRODUCT DESIGN Interior Designer $16,000,001 - $21,000,000 Private Residence
The floor plan dedicates an entire wing to the master suite, which highlights the estate’s connection to water and views of Doubloon Bay. Floor-to-ceiling windows create an alcove for an intimate sun-filled sitting area overlooking the tranquil reflecting pond with a water globe just outside and views across the infinity-edge pool to the bay. A glass door opens to the outdoor living room, linear fireplace and private boat dock.
With the emphasis on the vistas and creating a sense of place echoing the home’s coastal contemporary architecture, the designer selected low-profile furniture and a palette of bright whites, soft grays and wide-plank honey-hued flooring accented with watercolor blues, greens and touches of vivid turquoise and shimmering champagne. Texture is introduced in the pebble-patterned upholstery of the sitting room chairs, the shallow tiers of an architectural ceiling above the platform bed, and the gray tweed finishes of a custom built-in dresser and a display cabinet with glass doors, shelves and a lighted interior.
The wood floor continues into the open walk-in closet, which at 15-by-25 feet presented the opportunity to create the look of a high-end boutique. A freestanding wall with a large oval mirror and off-center floating shelf lends an elegant introduction to the custom Poliform closet featuring champagne finishes, glass doors, transom windows and an integrated lighting system focused on elevating hanging and display spaces to an artform.
In the bathroom, large-format porcelain tile flooring and a 108-inch privacy wall of book-matched porcelain slabs behind the freestanding tub boast dramatic champagne veining.
Designed for optimal natural light, the floor plan incorporates side windows and transom windows around the porcelain wall and in the walk-in shower, the latter cloaked in white tile with swirls of grays and equipped with five showerheads.
Custom-designed honey-hued vanities float in niches and have soft white countertops with waterfall edges extending to the floor. Niches repeat the finish and texture of the vanities and are inset with white counter-to-ceiling backdrops for wall-mounted fixtures and mirrors. A chandelier featuring dozens of glass globes resembling delicate sea urchin shells nods to the coastal design.
