Interior Design of the Year – Single Family Homes

Model Home
$16,000,0001 – $21,000,000

Balancing luxury with livability, the interiors take their cue from the home’s surroundings and serene views, mixing neutral shades of sand with soft blues and metallic touches. Rich details are introduced throughout the home, including a decorative lighting program with truly standout selections like the mixed media sculptural Thomas O’Brien-designed Orsiris chandelier in the foyer, to the form-meets-function Ralph Lauren Upton lanterns above the dining table. Accessories, art and an inspired use of glass and mirrors add layers of interest and enhance the upscale furniture selections. Textures are introduced in suede and grasscloth wall coverings, soft goods and accessories, as well as in unexpected places – like the pottery-influenced undermount sinks in the great room’s wine bar and the first-floor study. Window treatments are designed to be unobtrusively attractive and practical, with controlled customizations to obscure or welcome views at will. The master suite stands out with its Alfonso Marina black and white bed and ebony-finished chests with brass hardware anchored, by a Glen Eden custom New Zealand wool and nylon area rug with an abstract watercolor pattern. In front of a wall of glass showcasing views of the bay, a pair of Theodore Alexander mahogany frame arm chairs are finished with polished stainless accents. A seamless transition to the outdoor living area reveals an easy-going retreat designed for maximum enjoyment of the home’s water views. In this space, furniture selections promote flexibility, with a counter-height party tabletop, a dining table, and multiple conversation areas suggested with Gloster outdoor furniture.
