A SPECTACULAR CONDO WITH A SPLASH OF ART

cover story

DESIGNER Sherri Goode Goode Interiors, INC., Plantation, Florida 954.701.6149 PHOTOGRAPHY Dan Forer, Miami, Florida

14


When asked to take on this project from Goode’s repeat clients, she was honored to accomplish such a task. A condo at the Riverhouse …..how exciting she reveals! Knowing the discriminating level of taste her clients posses, she would have to be on top of her game.

S

herri Goode’s goal was to take the interiors of this condo and turn it into a “Cozy Home” for her clients, one that they could truly call home. The time frame for this project from start to finish was tight one . A few changes had to take place prior to any decorating. The foyer had to be spectacular, says Goode! It is the first space you see when stepping off the elevator. As the door opens you are surrounded by wall to wall Mother of Pearl inlaid onto the walls of the elevator

foyer. If this is not enough drama for you then maybe the opulent Fine Art cut crystal chandelier that is suspended in the coffered ceiling will catch your eye. The setting in the bar area exudes warm glows reflecting off the onyx bartop . The back drop for the feature wall is inlaid with Mother-of-Pearl that contrasts against the wenge bar. Art is a passion for Goode’s client and this is one of many pieces of his multiple collections you will see. Bill Mack is an artist who is regarded as the finest relief sculpturist in the world today. This piece was custom made for the Mother of Pearl feature wall. Thw wall sets the tone for a “WOW” impression. While overlooking the New River, the setting is a perfect place to entertain. - CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE -

This great room/formal living room was designed to make use of the most space possible.

T

his great room/formal living room was designed for intelligently conserving vital space. My clients use this room on a daily basis, whether to entertain or just for casual comfort. The furniture in this space has been custom made to suit the needs of the client and to coordinate with the warm tones and hues used throughout the condo. Once again, more Bill Mack is strategically displayed on the entertainment wall. Off to the west side of the condo you will see a gallery of art by the artist “Pino”. “Whether it’s the tilt of a chin, the slope of a shoulder, or the swish of a skirt, sensuality revs up Pino Dangelico’s creative juices,” which was once quoted by another artist. Halogen lighting was used to light up each piece of art in the entire apartment. This was carefully planned in the design phase of this project. The great room reveals magnificent views throughout the apartment. - CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE -

The dining is more than a room in which to eat, it is a gallery celebrating the extraordinary artistic talent of Tomasz Rut.


T

he dining room, another opulent space, is divided by a structural column inlaid with more Mother-of-Pearl. The reflections of the Mother-of-Pearl column are cast from the LED track lighting and from the Corbett crystal chandelier. The reflections of shimmer exude a warm, elegant atmosphere. Tomasz Rut, a local artist, which is one of the clients’ favorite artist, is displayed on the feature wall of the dining room and kitchen. The backdrop for this piece of art is a custom hand-applied metallic venetian plaster. Tomasz Rut has perfected the art of sensual imagery. An incredibly evocative artist whose creations celebrate the beauty of the human form, makes it nearly impossible to view his paintings and not fall in love. In 2011, Tomasz Rut’s paintings were officially included in the Vatican art collection by Pope Benedict XVI – the event that the artist considers his paramount and personally most significant accomplishment. - CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE -


T

he master suite, another space with spectacular views overlooking the New River and downtown Las Olas. One of Goode’s clients’ request was to not only make this space beautiful, but functional. As you enter the master suite you are standing in a foyer with more of her clients’ collections of art. Richard Johnson is the artist. “The luminescent beauty and lyrical quality of Richard Johnson’s work is what captivates collectors today,” states Goode. The crystal chandelier and the halogen light suspended over the artwork

reveals beautiful hues. All the artwork throughout the rooms have been framed in modern double floating frames to keep the art clean looking and not to interfere with the detail of the artist’s work. Everywhere you turn is either a spectacular view or another eyecatching custom piece of furniture. The custom furnishings used in this master suite are part of the Marge Carson collection along with a few Christopher Guy pieces. Each piece is a special custom piece. The custom bedding made out of faux fur mimicked the hand cut stitched cowhide rug. Another Fine Art arc crystal chandelier was used for accent and functional lighting in the space. The walls were painted in Ralph Lauren suede. Hence, mission accomplished - the clients were able to work, relax, and sleep all in the same space with comfort and ease. The master bath is a space that truly emits opulence! Another crystal flush mount chandelier suspended in the coffered ceiling reflects beauty throughout. The custom beveled cut mirrors reflect all sides of the space and even into the master foyer. Bill Mack, once again, is displayed on the marble feature wall. Whether looking at it straight on or through the reflection of the mirror, the round relief sculpture of a lady is one of her client’s favorites. - CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE -

The common theme used throughout the interior was accomplished by using multiple textures, warm tones on the walls with reflective shimmering finishes. Whether it was in the display of art or the unique accessories, the warmth that is emitted in this unique space conveys luxury. The clients can be described as true class acts! Unpretentious in nature, with true impeccable taste.

A LATIN-INSPIRED MIAMI RETREAT When Old World Meets The Contemporary World Of North Miami, The Result Is A Whimsical, Yet Sophisticated South Florida Penthouse. InTerIor DeSIGn Britto Charette fort lauderdale, 954.533.9748 PhoToGraPhy alexia fodere


D

esigners Jay Britto and David Charette have captured the warmth of Old World Mediterranean style and the sophistication of modern design in this South Florida penthouse owned by clients Manolo and Julia Rodriguez. Jay Britto’s background may explain why the collaboration was so successful.

Born in Peru, Jay is fluent in Spanish—a skill that helps him when communicating with many of Britto Charette’s international clients. “Our clients are from Alicante, Spain, and they fell head-over-heels with Aventura,” Britto says. “Living close to Miami makes them feel very much at home.” And while the Rodriguez’ primary estate, which used to belong to Alfonso XIII, former king of Spain, conveys a more traditional feel, the owners opted for their new South Florida winter retreat to have clean, contemporary lines. -CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE-


The 29th floor penthouse features 200 linear feet of terrace space and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Inside, Britto incorporated the color white and splashes of his signature orange-a color that seems to “evoke a kind of Latin note, as well as pure joy.” Paneled walls and recessed and

stepped ceilings create wonderful surprises at every turn. “My basic palette is restrained, but patterns, textures, and architectural elements of surprise keep you interested,” Britto says. -CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE-


Throughout the residence runs a smooth-finish, white limestone floor that flows brilliantly from the dining room into the perfectly appointed living room. Soft draperies utilize a panel-vision system that can either close completely for a delicate glow or be pulled into sections for a cascading effect.


White leather sofas furnished by Roche-Bobois establish an air of intimacy around dual cocktail tables of blue and white Murano glass. A splendid water view continues into the family room where a plush chocolate-brown shag area rug and alluring modular sofa create a cozy atmosphere.

-CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE-


In the kitchen, a series of glass “milk bottle” pendants from Tango Lighting illuminates the 16-foot bar that is accented with Compac’s orange quartz countertop and backsplash, creating a fun and light mood. Eight Macassar-backed barstools invite family and guests to enjoy authentic Spanish home cooking. Britto and Charette added to the fun by installing a paellera well for the Rodriguez family to prepare their favorite seafood paella. -CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE-


A long, art-filled gallery flows into the master bedroom and three guest rooms, each with two king-size beds to accommodate the owners’ extended family. The master bedroom is done in pure white. Lush plants, paintings of water, and a porthole-style window with a view of the ocean lend light and restfulness to the space. To maintain a feeling of earthiness and warmth in the master bathroom, Britto chose a limestone, custom-made bathtub and custom-made doors (designed by Jay Britto). The custom lighting was furnished by Luxe Natura. The contemporary-style vanity made of oak and the white high-gloss door were made by Paez Design in Miami. This magnificent bathroom also features something quite unique—the mirror has a TV incorporated into it. Manufactured by Electric Mirror, the dark application on the wall is made of Sobu wood tiles by Walker Zanger. All plumbing fixtures are by Dombradcht. The art is untitled and was purchased from Giovanni Rossi Art Gallery in the DCOTA. -CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE-


The guest rooms are a reflection of Britto’s affinity for luxurious details. Two of the 30-foot long rooms were created with stepped ceilings and recessed lights. Italian cabinetry extends the length of both rooms. One room is dressed in shades of taupe, pewter, and white, while the other beckons with a warm honey caramel. Leatherwrapped beds give the room a sophisticated cosmopolitan feel, while Grupo Kettal furniture entices guests to enjoy morning coffee or evening drinks on the terrace.

Maintaining a bright and cheerful atmosphere, the powder room features a vanity of oak and white, high-gloss doors, created by Paez Design, Miami. The custom-made sinks by Fine Surfaces in Miami, the forest green marble, and the wall-mounted faucets from Axor lend a sophisticated touch. To add contrast to the décor, Britto and Charette chose wallpaper made of glass beads from Innovations Wall Coverings in the DCOTA. The Viennese mirror was furnished by the clients, as was the frizz (white marble scene from the clients’ home in Spain) that Britto and Charette framed with dark wood. Adding a touch of drama to the powder room are wall sconces by Ipe Cavalli. And to add a dash of excitement, Britto placed a piece of red and brown 3-dimensional abstract art, furnished by Giovanni Rossi Fine Art Gallery in the DCOTA, on the wall. The ottoman in the middle of the room was designed by Britto Charette and is made of leather with a dark oak base.


Designed with entertaining in mind, the owners’ desire for a classic, modern home has been completely fulfilled by Britto Charette. With over 4,800 square feet of sophisticated fun, this Miami retreat is a place the Rodriguez family can share with family and friends.

Shower Yourself with Luxury in Your Bath BY BILL FEINBERG, PRESIDENT OF ALLIED KITCHEN & BATH

Showers used to be purely about function—bathing and cleansing. Now, more than ever, homeowners are transforming their showers into relaxing spa-like areas where they can escape and unwind. This isn’t hard to do, and there are so many exciting possibilities in shower systems that you can really have fun with your remodeling project. Many of our clients are building spa like showers now, whereas in years past, the trend was towards installing whirlpool tubs for a spa experience. Because of this new demand and the fact that most people take more showers than baths, shower design is getting much more interesting and spa-like. Now, it can be like visiting a spa every time you take a shower! While the big, beautiful tubs are nice to have, it's truly the shower that is used a lot more frequently. While old-time showerheads had very little styling or imagination, the latest in showerheads and faucets will make you wonder why you hadn’t remodeled sooner. Unique finishes such as bronze and antique copper showerheads can blend beautifully with your new bathroom hardware. But the latest in shower design isn’t all about looks, there are shower heads that spin, massage and even make you feel as though you are standing in the rain!

Choose a showerhead that fits your desired bathing experience. Do you need a massage type showerhead to ease back pain ore soreness, or do you love the feel of being drenched by an oversized showerhead? Maybe you want both, and in today’s baths, you can have whatever you want! Also, you want to make sure you choose the right type of shower arm for your showerhead. Positioning of your showerhead is important when trying to establish the desired flow and coverage of water, so make sure the position fits the height of those using the shower. Larger showerheads work great when positioned directly overhead, while smaller showerheads may require an adjustable shower arm extension to move it as you see fit. If you are choosing a “sunflower” showerhead, it is best to select one with flexible rubber tips. These tips allow for easy cleaning and help limit shower residue. Consider adding wall-mounted body sprays for extra water power. Adding these body sprays to your showerhead system can imitate an actual spa experience. You can see the hottest trends in kitchen and bath remodeling at Allied Kitchen and Bath’s luxury showroom located at on Oakland Park Blvd. in Fort LauderdaleFor more information on the new showroom call (954) 564-1611 or e-mail bill@Alliedkb.com. 49
