The clients shared inspirational photos and their vision for the chateau look with the local architect, interior designer, and landscape architect; they collaborated from concept to completion and created the French Régence design. This issue also highlights reimagined homes, from a Tuscan-style residence transformed into a fresh, timeless contemporary beauty, to a closed-in dated condo with a brilliant open-concept makeover, and a luxurious abode’s Mediterranean influence transformed into a classic, sophisticated second home.

Front Elevation: “The clients like the formality and symmetry of a French country home and shared pictures of historic homes, all of which were dominated by second-floor dormers,” states Architect Matthew Kragh of MHK Architecture. “They wanted the look but in a one-story home. That was a challenge. We incorporated roof dormers and tall ceilings which gives the home an open feeling.” Turf inset in the driveway “softens up the paving materials and marries landscaping and hardscaping,” adds Trefz.

58 homeanddesign.net



HHomeownersin a private residence in Pine Ridge Estates are equally at home in Naples, Florida as they are in the rolling hills of Provence or the Centre-Val de Loire, and speak French frequently. From the formality and symmetry of the architecture — immersed in a park-like setting of pergolas and meandering walkways to interiors reinterpreting classic French Régence design with hints of contemporary — the home articulates a certain je ne sais quoi, an essence both seen and sensed. u

Park: “What’s special about this project is that it’s really a residence and a park,” explains Landscape Architect Patrick Trefz of Outside Productions International, who collaborated with the owners to create a park-like setting woven with wandering walkways of poured concrete stepping stones and the dyed concrete curbing they designed. The paths connect to destination pergolas illuminated by lamp posts resembling large glowing candles. “They had a vision and really good ideas for using pergolas as passageways and gateways to outdoor rooms,” he notes.

homeanddesign.net 59

The owners, who have a professional background in concrete masonry, were intrinsically involved from concept to completion. Their knowledge and creativity are expressed in one-of-a-kind stepping-stone pathways, custom outdoor lamp posts, and the facade itself, where large-scale concrete building blocks influence design and construction. They pave the way for architecture that emulates the appearance of a traditional two-story country home with soaring ceilings indicative of the 1700-1730 era of French design. The owners’ bon vivant preferences are also reflected in the Régence dining table and the desk they’ve owned for many years.

“It was a seamless interior design process because they work in the industry,” says Interior Designer Wilfredo Emanuel of Wilfredo Emanuel Designs. “She knows exactly what she wants. She loves French Régence design, the chateau look, and had inspirational photos that sewed it all together. I love when a client tells me exactly what they want.” u

Great Room Sitting Area: A beamed cathedral ceiling, mouldings, and wide-plank oak floors lend a nod to the rustic farmhouses of the French countryside. Designer Wilfredo Emanuel pares down the great room’s largess by creating a second sitting area, drawing on his contemporary muse with two curvilinear sofas, black velvet pillows, and minimal accessories. “Black is elegant and mixing it in brings a beautiful balance to gold and metals that look gilded of time,” says Emanuel.

Dining Room: The upholstered straight-back chairs juxtapose the marquetry of the homeowners’ dining table. Hand-painted gold leaf accents are subtly displayed in the tray ceiling coffers, where a pair of glass pendants provide an understated interpretation of the era’s grand ornate chandeliers. Clad in caviar custom cabinetry with two Sub-Zero wine towers from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, the bar’s beveled antique mirror subway tile backsplash — sourced from Ruben Sorhegui Tile — also conveys a French influence.

60 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 61

Great Room Media Center: Millwork adorns walls in a classic French style, extending to the beamed cathedral ceiling in the great room, where Emanuel makes the television the focal point, while blending it into the black background of a recessed niche that displays the family’s objets d’art and antiques. The mouldings, ebony-shaded sconces, and brass and bronze finishes elevate authenticity and visual interest, as does custom-made furniture from Vanguard and Old Biscayne Designs. Shades of white — from alabaster to antique and pure white — create contrasting backdrops for black and gold details to pop.

Kitchen: Placing perimeter cabinetry in recesses creates seamless continuity to walls accented with French mouldings while balancing the scale of the soaring cathedral ceiling. LED lights are integrated above the cabinetry and are mirrored in the great room’s ceiling detail. Shell white contrasts the ebony finishes off the large freestanding island, bar stools, pendants, and Amoré Design Factory’s Euro range hood, which boasts a classic European form and brass trim. The integrated cabinetry and dark backgrounds complement the stainlesssteel appliances by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.

Butler’s Pantry: “I think every home needs a butler’s pantry and a beautiful laundry room,” Emanuel posits. “I like to dress them up with interesting details, lighting, and wallpaper.” Designed to be shown off, the pantry features antiqued cabinetry extending to the ceiling and the designer’s signature mullioned glass doors, creating an eye-pleasing symmetry and opportunities to showcase artful serving ware.

For Emanuel and Architect Matthew Kragh at MHK Architecture, the pastoral estate is a foray beyond their usual purview because they’re both accustomed to the pared-down aesthetic and clean-lined simplicity of contemporary and coastal-contemporary design. They welcomed the challenge of translating the timeless appeal and romance of centuries-old provincial homes to a new realm, capturing the essence in architecture accented by caviar-hued shutters, antique lanterns, and the look of roofline dormers. u

62 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 63

Her Bathroom: “I wanted to evoke a little bit of a literal French feel in her bathroom,” Emanuel explains. “The profile of the cabinet doors with mouldings and antiqued mirrors and the double bullnose edge of the counters mimic the old detail work from this rich era.” A Thassos marble floor provides an elegant backdrop for a brushed silk Maya Romanoff wallcovering in frosty champagne, a contemporary gold chandelier with a traditional form, and mother of pearl accents.

His Bathroom: Dual bathrooms have become a popular home design, and these bathrooms are separated by a steam shower with fixtures from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. His bathroom is decidedly masculine with handsome caviar and rich browns in the vanity, millwork, and the fabric of a French valance — tones that Emanuel contrasts with brushed bronze finishes and a Thassos marble floor. A woven Zinc Textile’s Cerium wallcovering is overpainted with matte and metallics for an antiqued look.

64 homeanddesign.net

Primary Bedroom: The primary bedroom — rendered in soft shades of gray, beige, and cream underscored by ebony — is très French, albeit in a clean-lined contemporary style. The tray ceiling echoes the profile of a mansard roof and the pattern above her bathroom. Wall mouldings are reminiscent of vintage design, while the florals and motifs in the custom area rug, window treatments, and accent pillows recreate the look of antique fabric, an ambiance further enhanced by the fireplace and oak floor.

“The owners’ knowledge of concrete is reflected in the construction,” notes Kragh, who has designed exactly one other French country home during his 25-year career. “Using 12-inch concrete block is very rare and created deeper wall cavities so we could inset windows and make the architecture more dramatic.” u

homeanddesign.net 65

“They explained from day one they wanted a meandering garden that interacts with the home, flowing from the exterior to the interior,” says Kragh. “We took advantage of the large lot, bringing the house closer to the front to create a park behind it.” The team accomplished this by building the residence at the front of the oversized lot, which created space for ample outdoor areas. u

Nursery: French artists created the look of a vintage mural in the estate’s nursery, featuring a whimsical theme of butterflies, birds, bunnies, and a narwhal. French mouldings frame the artwork and embellish the coffered ceiling while repeating the same tones in the bunk bed and changing table. The custom area rug complements the soft, soothing palette.

Guest Bathroom: “The lattice work on the cabinets, the wallpaper, and marble are applicable to that time,” Emanuel says of a guest bathroom featuring a palette of white, gray, and brushed gold. In addition, the Sea Breeze tile on the shower floor and an inlay in its main wall complement the stylized damask of Schumacher’s Villandry wallcovering, named for a Renaissance-era chateau in the Loire Valley.

66 homeanddesign.net

Emanuel, known for a larger-than-life élan of color, conveys the period aesthetic with mouldings, casings, textures, antique mirrored finishes, and a refined palette of alabaster and beige with a beautiful balance in the pairing of classic black and gold and satin brushed fixtures from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery in her bathroom. Ironically, this visual is a transitionary style between the highly ornate Baroque and less formal Rococo periods.

“I used a lot of details from the French Régence style without losing the clean lines of transitional design,” Emanuel exclaims. “I enjoyed revisiting another era and bringing it back in my style.” n

Outdoor Living: Alfresco sitting areas offer an array of gathering options, including a spacious fireside living room with sectional seating, French-influenced armchairs, and wrought-iron elements — the latter also translated to the caviar casings of doors and transom windows. The black-and-white palette is warmed with a cypress-clad ceiling, a rustic coffee table, and breezy draperies that frame openings. “The draperies are my signature,” declares Emanuel. “They make a space feel like a cabana.”

homeanddesign.net 67

Sunken Sitting Area: The expansive lot sizes in Pine Ridge Estates lends well to multiple elevations. “There’s a little surprise behind the pool — we incorporated a large built-in fire pit area, an awesome outdoor room with a cozy, nestled-in feeling,” exclaims Trefz. Hidden from view of the house and outdoor areas, the space offers a banquette embellished with comfortable cushions and pillows below a pergola. The homeowners designed the pathway leading to this extraordinary destination.

Pool Island and Arbor: The pool, Trefz remarks, “has a dramatic look with the pergola and an island against a nice green backdrop so the structures pop.” Black hexagonal glass tile along the waterline creates depth, dimension, and the illusion of floating stepping stones leading to the island, where a pair of regal armchairs add a touch of French flair. The lush landscaping enhances the view while imparting privacy.

Rear Elevation: “We created a view by running the pool straight out from the house,” comments Trefz. With an emphasis on linear forms and white surfaces, the pool area evokes an inviting sense of calm while reflecting the symmetry of the estate’s architecture. Pergolas and contemporary chaises offer gathering destinations within verdant green landscaping, uplit palm trees, and a trio of bubbling fountains.

Front Elevation (Previous Spread): The new exterior reads contemporary by removing the Tuscan-style elements and adding linear features. Walter keeps the original roof lines but scales up the entrance, cladding it in a natural stone-like porcelain tile. Between these tiles are powder-coated metal schluters that reinforce the horizontal lines. Architectural cement planks from Nichiha accent the home, while this Tesla Solar Roof was the first of this size in Southwest Florida, with a fully integrated solar and energy storage system.

into this house before the remodel meant stepping back thirty years in style and design. Owner of Cardamon Design and Interior Designer Laurie Walter pores over the original architectural drawings and reimagines the front elevation, interior layout, and pool. Builder Jay DeAngelis of DeAngelis Custom Homes brings his can-do approach to anything construction related, making this design a reality. Together, they transform this extravagant, Tuscan-style house into a timeless contemporary lakeside beauty.

The clients were thrilled with Walter’s ability to incorporate the arch and column exterior into this contemporary-transitional style facade, while honoring the original architecture. This former sunken living room, bar, and pool get a lift, while the massive, overbearing staircase and marble-clad column gets an unbelievable re-design. u

Living Room: Removing the bay window and adding floor-to-ceiling drapery with gossamer feel frames the new streamlined windows and slider. Walter takes advantage of the tall ceilings by recreating the new 18-foot fireplace edged in a hand-chiseled stone. The wool and silk rug brings in the blue that echoes in the art, throw pillows, and lamp. Walter custom designs this multi-ring stainless-steel chandelier from Wilson Lighting to mimic the curves of the Thayer Coggin sofa below.

BEFORE homeanddesign.net 85

To support the clients’ wishes for an open-concept layout, DeAngelis reengineers the home, eliminating the need for interior weightbearing columns — except for one. Walter camouflages the support column, integrating it into the steel and glass wine room design.

“It’s a structural column and a design element — it’s both art and engineering and truly amazing,” shares DeAngelis.

Walter studies the clients’ art collection early in the design phase. “Before we started demolition on the home, I worked with the client on the placement of their art,” Walter says. The previous fireplace was diminutive in stature, and now it is an impressive focal point to showcase a brilliant and colorful art piece. u

Foyer | Staircase: Walter displays this sizable art piece in the foyer, calculating the space needed down to the inch. The steel stringer — made from a single piece of steel — supports the lofty, under-lit white oak treads. The glass and steel wine room support the structure above, mirroring the floating effect in the staircase. Underneath the stairs is a low-profile bench from American Leather.

The redesign of the kitchen gains 15 feet of wall space, and the adjacent sunken rooms are now level and open, making this new main floor a cohesive and captivating experience. Meticulous attention is given to redesigning the primary bed and bath from an ostentatious ancient palace to a crisp contemporary retreat. James Gelet, senior interior designer and Walter’s protege at Cardamon Design, guides the clients through the furniture selections. The palette is soft and neutral, showing off pops of color that bounce from the artwork to the rugs and then to the stunning view outside. u

Kitchen: Walter dresses the upper and lower cabinets in unique finishes for a harmonious balance of crisp silver and cerused oak from SOHO Kitchens & Design.

The dining space showcases this one-of-a-kind Israelimade chandelier that hangs over the Guan hardwood table with a live edge and a lucite base from Century. Walter incorporates a teal accent color in the adjacent family room with accent pillows that boldly contrast the greige Bracci sofa.

BEFORE 88 homeanddesign.net


Office: The bay windows are kept to honor the original architecture but replaced with new oil-rubbed bronze bay windows from Island Style Windows & Doors. Throughout the main floor, Walter uses this white oak Lauzon flooring in 8-inch-wide random lengths. Gelet custom designs the steel and glass display shelves that sit atop the metallic carbon-tone Vanguard credenza across from the sophisticated desk from Old Biscayne Designs.

Outdoor Living: “We had to get creative with the outdoor living space to be able to accommodate the seating area, outdoor kitchen, and dining space,” details Walter. She designs a floating table-height counter, and DeAngelis engineers the infrastructure to ensure the cantilevering Dekton will hold. The porcelain tile and architectural planks from the front facade repeat on the outdoor kitchen feature wall, and Walter outfits this entertaining kitchen from Mullet’s Appliances.

homeanddesign.net 89

Primary Bedroom: The spa outside and the lake beyond create an alluring view from this primary bedroom. The wool and silk area rug from Hadinger Flooring highlights the blush tones and the blue hues in the bold artwork above the Vanguard bed from International Design Source and topped with pillows that lend a nod to the beachy color palette.

Primary Bathroom: What was once an ornate and disjointed bathroom is now a streamlined contemporary haven. Walter’s drop-ceiling design has a lighted freeform curve which leads to the generous tub from Naples Plumbing Studio. In addition, the stunning backlit focal wall is finished in a Marvel Stone tile by Atlas Concorde and has two vertical bands of glass tile in a chevron pattern from Design Works. The cool hues of the tile find balance with the warm cream hue on the cabinetry.

The idea of a freestanding pool house became an opportunity to get creative. In Quail West, a secondary freestanding structure is against the covenant. “The DeAngelis philosophy is, ‘If you want it done, then we will find a way to get it done! We don’t believe in can’t,’” says DeAngelis. Together Walter and DeAngelis came up with the pergola solution, making this the first pool house in the area to be connected to the main structure by a custom pergola that shelters the walkway. “I’m inspired by architects of times past, who consider the connection between the home, the lot, and the land,” shares Walter, who recalls standing in the dirt where the pool house now stands to ensure the sight-lines would be perfect from all vantage points. “I understand design,” says DeAngelis, “and Laurie is a great designer who understands building.” This united passion created a remarkably graceful remodel. n


Rear Elevation: The redesign raises the pool deck to be level with the home. This contemporary pool house connects to the main structure by a custom oil-rubbed bronze pergola that is L.A.-inspired. The roof of the pergola pivots to shade and shield the walkway below. A medley of aqua hues against the Clauzetto White Marvel Stone paver pool deck creates a tranquil ambiance while relaxing on the Ledge Loungers or in the nearby outdoor living space.

Kitchen (Previous Spread): Floor-to-ceiling bay windows spark the curvilinear design that reverberates in this kitchen. The polished chrome and crystal Fandelier by John-Richard complements the drop pendant over the dining niche. The built-in bench is a custom Lyons design that nestles inside the horseshoe-like curved island. Bright white cabinets are taken to ceiling height and fitted with built-in appliances. The polished marble backsplash climbs floor-toceiling behind the custom, mirror-finish hood in stainless steel.

Entry: This entryway fulfills the clients’ desire for a glamorous Hollywood-style experience. The laundry and guest suite doors blend seamlessly into Lyons’ intricate bright white wall panel design accented with linen tweed wallpaper and shiny mirror-finish laminate inlays. Project Manager Jason Durand of BIG Renovations & Design recalls personally ensuring this wall detail went together just right. In addition, Lyons inserts a silver, gray, and white tile inlay from Jeffrey Court down the hall for visual interest and texture.

Hall Bath: Lyons continues the polished white porcelain tile with subtle striations of gray from Ruben Sorhegui Tile into this hall bath. Elements like the fluted apron, the coral appearance on the scalloped mirror, and the wallcovering’s undulating pattern infuse this quaint hall bath with stimulating textural energy. At the same time, the softness of the overall colorway and the gold accent on the vessel sink endows a richness and ethereal mood.

WWhen this Bay Colony client asked for a jaw-dropping transformation for their dated condo, Jonathan Levy, owner of BIG Renovations & Design was a natural choice. He has thirty-three years of experience building and remodeling luxury homes and never shies away from a big ask.

“We want to be part of the design process from conception to completion,” shares Levy, who knows that the key to success with any project is putting together the right team. So Levy brings in Interior Designer Kristin Lyons, owner of KDL Interior Design, and Marcus Jelley of Marcus Jelley Design to collaborate on this show-stopping remodel. u

Living Room: Glitz and spunk describe this nook that Lyons fills with mirrored finishes, shaggy textures, and opulent round shapes like the two crystal and polished chrome cocktail tables from Baker Furniture.

homeanddesign.net 109

Jelley, who has designed luxury properties across the globe, says, “Many designers avoid curves and radiuses, but in this case, the dramatic floor-to-ceiling curved bay window in the kitchen needed to be celebrated. Mirroring the curved cooktop wall was the trigger that led to the circular island, and the whole design.” The unrivaled nature of this plan doesn’t stop at the layout and architectural detailing; Lyons develops this riveting, bright-meets-bold palette that merges the two homeowners’ wishes for an ethereal, alluring interior.

Project Manager Jason Durand of BIG Renovations & Design is no stranger to the usual remodeling roadblocks; however, unique to this project were a tight deadline and a long lead time on custom curved cabinetry. This combination meant ordering the cabinets based on Jelley’s architectural drawings alone — there wasn’t time to build the curvilinear walls first. “It all hinges on a relationship of trust and open communication we have built together through the years. It came out seamless in the end,” shares Durand. u

Great Room: Lyons’ palette of crisp white, cream hues, and touches of silver and blue combine with the flowing nature of the sheer drapery and the shiny accents for an ethereal feeling. The fireplace feature displays a strong presence in this sophisticated floor-toceiling dolomite. Unavoidable delays hold up the installation of the gas fireplace unit, so Lyons arranges candles on a bed of crystals in its place temporarily. “With all of today’s delays, we have to get creative,” shares Lyons, “and the clients absolutely loved it!” Flexibility is key to condo living — the blue sleeper sofa with clean lines can double as guest accommodations, while the two club chairs with leather bases add swanky, mid-century charm to the design.

Bar: The convex nature of this bar invites itself to be part of the great room experience. Lyons accentuates the curvilinear architecture with dark wood and mirror-finish inlays that she carries across the opening to the kitchen. Custom curved cabinets in bright white make up the base that Lyons adorns with white leather-wrapped handles. The faucet fits the style of this sophisticated bar, which also features a wine refrigerator behind the curved cabinetry.

homeanddesign.net 111

Primary Bedroom: The branch-like detailing on the chandelier from Fine Arts is reminiscent of the pattern on the Maya Romanoff wallpaper made of hand-applied silver leaf and glitzy glass beads that line the walls in this boutique-style primary bedroom. On the other side, Lyons designs a custom, plush feature-wall headboard and bed, upholstered in velvety-textured fabric. A clear glass door connects this room to its en suite to give both spaces an expansive feel.

Primary Bedroom Entry: “This unique space offers a perfect niche for a bench seat,” describes Lyons, “and this was a wonderful opportunity to display a few curated accessories. I was looking for more texture than color in each piece.” The custom bench cushion is plush in a velvet-touch fabric and sits atop added storage cabinets. Lyons repeats the mirror-finish inlay accent and panel detail while adding textured vases from West Home Collection atop the shelf.

112 homeanddesign.net

From closed-in to open-concept, this new layout highlights the view of the water across the entire length of the space. The convex bar connects the kitchen and great room, engaging the two areas on a functional level and reinforcing the circular inspiration. Lyons layers colors of the water from blue to green atop a crisp silver and white backdrop, adding mirrored finishes and dark wood accents to perfectly blend light and airy with big and bold.

“Our goal was to make every square inch of this unit functional and to give the client a sense of awe around each turn,” delights Levy. The hall that leads to the primary bedroom was the perfect place for a cozy, upscale niche. This boutique-style bedroom shows off a luscious palette that propels these interiors to a new level of high design. Both the rhythm of the curves and the colorway travel into this main suite. Overall, the primary bathroom is in vogue with a triumph of creative collaboration and construction mastery. u

homeanddesign.net 113

Primary Bathroom: This innovative team elevates the shower floor slightly, creating a new avenue for the plumbing design, enabling the prominent placement of the Victoria + Albert bathtub and walk-in shower. Lyons uses this breathtaking Gray Diamond polished granite as the shower feature wall and flush-mount Grohe showerheads for a clean look. Curves on the cabinet faces are a nod to the overall design concept, and unique overhead lighting hidden behind the soffit is a high-end custom feature.

114 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 115

The clients had not seen the condo since before demolition. “We opened the entry doors at the reveal, and they were both in awe! As we entered the space, they asked if they should take off their shoes. We said, ‘This is your home!’ It was the most gratifying reveal I have ever had!” delights Lyons. From demolition to reveal, this team delivers above and beyond on that jaw-dropping big ask n

Guest Bathroom: The guest bathroom colorway leans into the gray-blue hues on the custom cabinet painted in Sherwin-Williams’ Rhinestone and the pearly, dusty-blue marble feature wall in the shower. The hammered silver mirror from Bassett Furniture and the custom cabinet featuring metallic rectangular pulls and mirror-finish inlays add a shine to this space, while the soft-white hues on the white granite countertop offer elegance.

Guest Bedroom: “I wanted to bring in some softness since we are using many polished finishes, and the wood accent adds warmth to the design,” shares Lyons, describing the chair from Uttermost, which sits at the wooden Bernhardt desk. Lyons creates a guest space full of texture and interest with the lustrous steely-blue drapery, a fluffy charcoal-hue throw, metallic lamps, and organic patterns on the pillows.

Lanai: Polished porcelain tile in large format from Ruben Sorhegui Tile runs through the interior, so Lyons took the same tile in a matte finish to span the lanai. Neutral cream and subtle blue hue slipcovers from Perennials Sutherland Studio enswathe the dining chairs from Essentials For Living that cozy up to the round base table. The curved columns are a part of the original architecture, and the team thought they fit perfectly into the new design.

The dramatic entryway flows into the main living space, an open-concept area perfect for entertaining. The home’s front doors, initially 8 feet high, were transformed into grand 12-foottall showpieces that cleverly use fenestration and transoms to bring light into the heart of the home. The seating group sets the transitional coastal tone with a water-blue color palette for the rest of the home’s design, while oak floors are a warm counterpoint to the white walls.

Kitchen (After): “The objective in this kitchen was to open it up and let the sunshine in,” says Knapp. The expanded kitchen features ocean-blue glass mosaic backsplash tiles to balance the water feature outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. A unique glass floor bump-out in the wall of windows allows an indoor view of the koi in the outdoor pond and other natural elements, like the rock-shaped poured-glass pendant lights above the island that give the space an earthy feel. White cabinetry and same-height island countertops make the new kitchen feel more spacious.

TThis Bonita Bay home had been through many renovations over the years, so when the homeowners requested a new main suite for their outdated Tuscan-style villa, it was through the inspired vision of Lana Knapp of Collins DuPont Design Group and Tony Palladino of Palladino Custom Homes that it grew into a two-year-long dream home transformation. Along with the extraordinary trust and respect their long-term clients placed in them, this awardwinning collaboration is a textbook example of how creative thinking and synergy can turn a simple remodeling project into a showcase of beautiful design and taste.

The clients’ growing wish list, and their desire for additional space, prompted Palladino to suggest a full-scale move-out remodel to address the multiple updates the home required. As the project expanded and the need for a designer became apparent, he suggested Knapp due to her experience and skills. “We work well together,” he recalls, a perspective gained from previous collaborations. “We listen to each other and work through issues to find the best result for the client. She comes up with ideas no one else thinks of that take a project to a whole new level.” Palladino credits Knapp with the most transformational suggestions — the soaring glass-and-metal staircase with its custom medallion, the glorious walnut beams that open up the ceilings, and the stunning — cleverly hidden — tub filler in the main bath. u

Kitchen (Before): The kitchen was opened up by raising the ceiling, adding walnut beams, and straightening the walls, which made the workspace more efficient and put the focus on the formerly hidden picture windows. A structural beam, discovered when removing the pantry wall, complicated the remodel, but cooperation among Palladino, Knapp, and the engineer resulted in a unique cantilevered ceiling solution.


homeanddesign.net 133

Dining Room | Stairs: The staircase was custom-designed and fabricated on-site by Palladino. A metal framework supports glass panels between the stair stringers and railing, allowing light from the expanded windows to fill the space. The wine cellar continues the see-through glass theme of the stair panels and features a backlit quartzite wall that slides out for maintenance. A cut-crystal, custom-sized Hubbardton Forge fixture illuminates the Century dining table.

Ceiling Medallion: The stairwell ceiling was originally a trompe l’oeil mural of the night sky. Knapp designed a stunning bleached-walnut ceiling medallion that was cut and assembled on site. In keeping with the night-sky theme, LED lights and Swarovski crystals were strategically placed to create the family’s astrological constellations, giving the lighting a starlike effect. Additional up-lighting focuses on the stunning medallion, making a formerly ordinary staircase into a work of art.

“The medallion was an organic idea that grew out of a feature original to the house. I wanted to make it a focal point, something special for the client,” Knapp relates. Formerly a painted mural of a moonlit sky, Knapp created an octagonal walnut medallion that artfully incorporates depictions of each family member’s astrological sign in Swarovski crystal and LED lights. Oversized windows in the uniquely shaped stairwell allow more light to flow into the vertical space through the ingenious floating glass and powder-coated metal stair railings, and into the rooms below.

Light was a significant influence that factored into the overall home transformation. The former footprint of the space was dark and congested, with tight areas and enclosed walls that made the rooms feel small despite their tall, groin-vaulted ceilings, arches, and Italian-countryside murals. “The challenge was how to open up the entire home, how to bring in the light and make it all feel bigger,” Knapp explains. She achieved this by removing the vaulting, raising the ceilings, and painting the walls a crisp shade of white. To add interest and prevent the high-ceilinged rooms from feeling cavernous, she added bleached-walnut beams, which give a natural, organic feel to the home. u

The Bonita Bay project received the Grand and Silver Aurora Awards for Best Renovated or Restored Single Home, as well as Silver Aurora Awards for Best Custom Home 8,000 to 10,000 sq. ft., and Best Bath Design for a Custom/Spec/One-of-a kind Home, plus the Sand Dollar Award for Interior Design of the Year. Inside and out, this home is tailormade for a family who adores outdoor activities, entertaining, and whose willingness to put their faith in the vision of an extraordinary team resulted in a home customized just for them — one they will treasure for many, many years. n

Primary Bedroom (Before): Rather than wall-to-wall carpeting, previously found in the main bedroom, Knapp uses the same wood flooring used throughout the rest of the home for the new suite. The rich blues in the rug and pillow fabric are repeated in the ocean-themed artwork, giving the new space a more serene and much lighter feel than the original space. In addition, the dingy beige wall color is replaced with bright white, highlighting the wood veneer accent.


Primary Bedroom (After): A Donghia wood veneer wallpaper with an iridescent sheen adds dimension to the main bedroom’s walls. In addition to crown moulding around the high ceiling, the floating wood beams add depth to the space. “High ceilings can sometimes be harsh and cold, so we dropped the beams eighteen inches, which warms this room up,” explains Knapp. Watercolor fabric pillows grace the Century bed, and their blues are repeated in the dog-friendly wool and bamboo silk area rug.

homeanddesign.net 135

Primary Bathroom (After): The primary bathroom was a blank space where Knapp could flex her creativity and design unique solutions for issues like how to hide the plumbing for the tub filler from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, which could be no higher than nine feet above the centered tub. “Lana came up with the idea of using curved beams to hide it,” remembers Palladino. In addition, a custom-built waterproof remote system allows the homeowner to control the water level while bathing.

Primary Bathroom (Before): Calacatta Apuano marble countertops and a cloud-like faux finish on the walls add to the spa-like appeal of the new bathroom, a sharp contrast to the dull beige stone finishes in the former main bath. Eight-foot dual vanities provide much-needed storage and organization, and a deep armoire conceals a television designed for viewing while relaxing in the new tub. Clerestory windows near the ceiling draw sunlight and warmth into the room.

136 homeanddesign.net

Shower: The primary bathroom suite is awash in LED chromotherapy lighting thanks to the six-foot-diameter rain glass window seen in the expansive shower. Custom mother-of-pearl tile panels and blue accent mosaics by Ruben Sorhegui Tile add iridescence and color. The same mosaic is repeated on a heated bench outside the shower entrance. A rain head on the ceiling and dual shower controls on the walls add a touch of luxury to the clients’ daily routine.

Family Room (Before): Dark paint, deep-stained cabinetry, and heavy furniture gave way to sleek surfaces and upholstery in the family room. Knapp created an asymmetrical entertainment center for the television in order to move the furniture to the middle of the room, which opened up the space for better flow. A faux finisher hand-painted shadows on the dimensional wall to emphasize the textural undulations, reminiscent of ocean waves, which are also reflected in the artwork on the adjacent wall.

Family Room: A high skylight dominates the family room, funneling a tower of light into the space where it then weaves through the intricate grid of bleached walnut beams. A two-tiered, chipped-glass Hubbardton Forge light fixture draws the eye to this striking feature without detracting from the natural sunlight. A textural wall surrounds a unique steam fireplace — a perfect choice for Florida as it doesn’t add extra heat to the room when in use.

Guest Bedroom: Knapp added a touch of shiplap to the vaulted ceiling of this small guest bedroom between more beams of bleached walnut wood. A fun Osborne & Little tropical floral print adds movement and color to the bed and chaise lounge, and a rattan woven headboard brings a beach-cabana vibe to the room. Agate-slice artwork grounds the space with a vibrant, organic element that draws the eye upward to the high ceiling and architectural details.

Pool: The client, an avid fisherman and outdoorsman, wanted an outdoor space to entertain family and business associates. The enclosed lanai includes cascading water features falling gently into a small pool, a tiled pergola, multiple enchanting fire bowls, and intricate stone and tile hardscaping, perfect for either large parties or more intimate gatherings in any season. Several access points allow guests and family to enjoy the outdoors from anywhere in the home.

Outdoor Kitchen: The outdoor kitchen features a playful palm-frond motif printed on large-format porcelain tile, a choice made for withstanding Florida storms and heat. The mosaic wall behind the vent hood mixes rich blues, golds, and silvers, and Cristallo quartzite countertops add a soft glow when backlit at night, reflecting the same masculine hues in its intricate veining. The existing wood ceiling was stained a dark cherry, so Knapp had it faux finished in a lighter driftwood pattern.

Front Elevation: “This remodel completely changed the exterior look and feel of the home,” Palladino explains. Gone is the former islandMediterranean style with the addition of a new paver driveway, new entry gates, a redesigned exterior facade, and modern landscaping that accents the Andersen Windows & Doors from Naples Lumber. In addition, the full- spectrum lighting found in the newly added main bath is repeated outside, along with additional ambient lighting that illuminates and highlights the home’s exterior features and the inside house.

Front Elevation: Black accents give this coastal cottage a high-contrast modern punch against the soothing green paint — Sea Salt from SherwinWilliams. The prominent front gable is vaulted, allowing natural light to flood into the interior from the oversized top-floor windows from Andersen Windows & Doors, sourced through Florida Wood Window & Door. Guzman designs a Gasparilla-style faux planter box underneath one of the small windows to enrich the home’s exterior. Pygmy palms flank the natural shellstone entry steps that lead to an inviting front porch

154 homeanddesign.net

OOn the southern tip of Gasparilla Island are a handful of exceptional lots that boast both sunset and sunrise views. In this high-end area, the coastal vibe is casual. “This home is a perfect fit for Boca Grande, exhibiting a balance between elegance and that casual lifestyle this community demands,” says James Nulf, Chief Operating Officer and Partner of Seagate Development Group. With a strong desire to match the feel of the area to the design, Seagate Development Group creates a home that exemplifies easygoing elegance.

This home’s coastal cottage exterior lends itself well to the relaxed nature of the island. Residential designer Richard Guzman of R.G. Designs highlights the prominent central gable as the connection to the cottage style while adding an island appeal with the Gasparilla style railing — a term Guzman coins specifically for the area. Paula Myette, director of design at Theory | Design, creates drama with touches of black on the exterior, elevating this cottage to Gasparilla chic. u

Outdoor Living: Florida life is outdoor life, and this living space emphasizes just that. The team creates a cozy living room environment that faces the modern, airy fireplace. Surrounding the teak dining table are expansive wicker chairs. Guzman highlights that the outdoor kitchen wall is only as wide as necessary to preserve this home’s unique vantages. Motorized screens and decorative hurricane shutters were installed by Castle Services of Southwest Florida and are necessary for this waterfront home. The full outdoor kitchen with a 42-inch Lynx grill has a sink and an under-counter refrigerator from Ferguson, Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.

For the interior, Myette chooses fresh greens and crisp navy hues to accent the neutral background, blending tailored lines with rustic textures, all to give rise to this free, easy, nautical, high-end design. The staircase climbs three stories, playing an integral role on each level of the home. “The staircase had to be amazing,” shares Myette, noting the importance of this prominent architectural feature. “The stairs are in a casual palette and a modern style, yet the stainless cable railing is reminiscent of that on a ship deck,” she concludes.

The interior layout takes full advantage of the views. The streamlined kitchen has a unique T-shaped island that allows the homeowners a place to relax and dine while still having a direct line of sight out to Grande Pass. This waterside lot has a lush vegetation buffer that separates it from the water. “Even though the pool doesn’t spill into another body of water,” shares Pat Trefz, landscape architect, and designer at Outside Productions International, “the impact of the water simply disappearing over the back of the pool creates a unique and alluring visual effect,” notably from the great room. u

Living Room: Myette selects a plush sectional in crisp, white linen and tops it with vibrant blue and green pillows. Atop the navy area rug sits two woven rattan cocktail tables that add texture to the design. A classic, painted white nickel gap ceiling in bright white elevates the space, while the oversized sliders from WinDoor extend the view to the infinity-edge pool.

Staircase: The floating stairs above the foyer are a distinctly modern feature. The softness of the white oak on the stair treads and handrails gives this space a warm, welcoming appeal, while the silver cable railing and oversized Visual Comfort lantern pendant harken back to the coastal theme. Large windows fill the room with natural light, illuminating the Agreeable Gray by Sherwin-Williams neutral wall color.

homeanddesign.net 157

The strong navy and white colorway creates intrigue for the main bedroom, while a softer version of this color combination takes an informal stance in the guest space. However, there’s nothing casual about the primary bathroom; this elegant tub-in-shower design is pure luxury, drawing inspiration from European-style baths. The artwork is essential, instilling a touch of coastal ambiance and color in each space.

Around the back, the exterior color scheme differs from the front, but here it is meant to blend effortlessly into the coastal setting. “The grand deck above the outdoor living provides a 270-degree view to enjoy both sunsets and sunrises,” shares Guzman. Creating an experience for the homeowners drives this passionate group and fosters a strong connection between the style, homesite, and the Boca Grande community. n

Dining Room: With a full wet bar and built-in stainless-steel wine cooler by Thermador, this feature wall amplifies the high-end sophistication of the home and provides ample storage for barware and stemware. The navy and white color palette, along with nautical elements — rattan dining chairs, sea life décor on the floating shelves, polished chrome lantern chandelier, and glass tabletop — strengthen the coastal connection.

Kitchen: Guzman chooses windows instead of lining the range wall with upper cabinets to add more natural light and emphasize the coastal theme; stainless-steel appliances from Ferguson, Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery complement the blue colorway. Myette takes the contrasting glossy white subway tile backsplash to the ceiling, balancing the boldly painted cabinetry from Distinctive Kitchen Studio in Naval by Sherwin-Williams. Oversized glass pendants give an airy, cloud-like impression as they hang above the stunning White Macaubas quartzite countertops, which cascade in a waterfall edge on all three sides.

Primary Bedroom: For this chic, tailored home, the floor-to-ceiling drapery panels are concealed at the top by a drapery pocket, allowing the striped, sheer fabric to add visual interest to the design in a clean and neat presentation. Generously sized windows from Andersen Windows & Doors, sourced through Florida Wood Window & Door, invite the stunning pool and lush setting beyond to be part of this primary bedroom experience.

Primary Bathroom: This charcoal cabinetry from Distinctive Kitchen Studio is topped with a gray and white marble countertop. The combination mimics a softer expression of the exterior’s dramatic black and white color scheme. The white framed mirror stands out against the light-navy and white interweaved wallcovering. It casts a reflection of the avian artwork that Myette says pays homage to the native Florida wildlife in the home’s coastal design.

homeanddesign.net 161

Bonus Room: The painted white beams in the ceiling tray bathe this gathering space in upscale sophistication, while the flowing drapery in ivory frames the view of the water beyond. It is a comfortable living space teeming with natural accents, namely the rich walnut spindle chairs from Universal Furniture, which have cream-colored linen cushions. Set diagonally for interest, the wire-brushed white oak flooring gives the space a relaxed, coastal vibe.

Study: Upon entering this bright study, swirling hues of beige, blue, and gray are seen in the oyster shell artwork from Wendover Art, which captures the colorway of this space — the perfect backdrop for the sleek wood and metal desk by Four Hands. A convenient, fully equipped morning bar — a Seagate Development Group signature — is situated just outside the dramatic naval blue double doors with polished chrome hardware from Emtek.

162 homeanddesign.net

Guest Bathroom: Myette creates a soothing monochromatic palette of gray and white for this spalike bathroom, yet varies the textures with different tile styles. Solto White Marble is a staple here and in the other bathrooms, while Myette selects a Basket Weave Solto for this shower floor and the linear niche. The large bathing area, equipped with a handheld and rain-shower head, also features a large soaking tub from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery that adds visual interest to this luxe space.

Guest Bedroom: Myette selects a textural banana leaf bed frame from Four Hands for this restful guest space and tops it with soft muted blue and soft white bedding. Overlooking the bed are two symmetrical art pieces from Left Bank Art that are free-form and complement the easygoing feel of this guest suite with the same blue and green hues found throughout the rest of the home. The home’s walkin closets feature luxuriously configured storage by California Closets.

Main Vestibule: In the private main vestibule, Myette introduces a stunning reclaimed wood cabinet that showcases a beautiful display of varying grains. This piece anchors the waterscape artwork by Wendover Art that hangs above it. Atop this cabinet are deep cobalt blue ceramic accessories that echo the colorway of the painting, creating a harmonious entrance to this primary suite.

homeanddesign.net 163

Rear Elevation: High-contrast colors take a rest to create a peaceful ambiance on the rear of the home, as seen in the colorway and the complementary silver railing. A welcoming balcony connects to the upstairs bonus room and guest suite to take advantage of the panoramic views, while the covered deck off the primary suite gets a complete three-way vista. Soft, amber light complements this relaxed setting and is safe for the local wildlife, while automation of both light and sound provides added convenience.

Pool: The pool is elevated approximately 14 feet above ground level, resting atop the garage. Surrounding the pool is an ample shellstone deck and covered outdoor living area. Trefz elongates the steps that lead into the pool for a graceful entrance, so pool-goers can gather on the generous steps or in the water-level spa that gives the impression of one even, shimmering surface.

TThis team’s creativity and problem-solving talents are evident with this complete home renovation. Since they could not remove an existing three-foot structural kitchen column, they added a second column to create symmetry, allowing for a passthrough window and storage space. Relocating the sink from the back wall to face the great room was an additional challenge due to the restriction on moving drains in the building. Calusa Bay Managing Director and Interior Designer Randi Scott resolved this by hiding a plumbing lift station inside the new column, which pumps the sink’s wastewater upward over the ceiling back to the original drain.

A whitewashed, wood-beaded chandelier from Gabby makes an impressive statement in the charming kitchen. The rift-cut, white-oak butcher block top island further enhances the space’s appeal, appearing more like furniture than a kitchen island. The centerpiece is complete with a coastal driftwood finish. In addition, a local artist applied a white finish — similar to a Venetian plaster — to the custom Sub-Zero range hood. u

homeanddesign.net 179

At the entryway, Scott applied a custom millwork surround comprised of rift-cut white oak slats stained to coordinate with the floor color of the entry landing. The versatile built-in cabinetry, by Ruffino Cabinetry, features reeded sliding doors that hide the television when not in use. The Century sofa looks out to panoramic views atop the European Elegance oak flooring in the Lancaster finish from Legno Bastone Wide Plank Flooring, sourced and installed by Naples Flooring Company.

homeanddesign.net 181

Before commissioning BCB Homes and interior design firm Calusa Bay Design, these would-be clients interviewed several builders and interior designers. “We were interviewed simultaneously, and our companies were selected,” recalls Scott.

Built in 1994, there were multiple challenges throughout the 3,450-square-foot dwelling, and it required a complete gut remodel. The clients wished for a bright, airy home with natural light throughout, meaning walls had to come down. Additionally, low ceilings needed to be raised without damaging existing air conditioning ducts, and plumbing factors had to be considered. u

Wet Bar: Around the corner from the great room, the new wet bar exudes coastal charm with blue hue cabinets, decorative coral accents, and custom bronze hardware from Ashley Norton. A SubZero wine cooler houses the couple’s wine collection. “We wanted to show off the glassware without being pretentious. Metal mesh and glass keep them from getting dusty,” adds Scott. Antique mirrors add sophistication to the appealing element.

Study: The study’s cerused white oak wood desk delightfully fills the space. In contrast, the stunning custom cabinetry — fabricated by Ruffino Cabinetry — displays some of the family’s personal belongings. Scott notes, “The family went on a trip to Africa and we framed a lot of photos of the trip. The hide-on-hair rug is the client’s and is also very sentimental.”

Dining Room: Desiring a connection to the kitchen, the designer wrapped the kitchen cabinets around the wall in the dining space. Finding a table to fit in the small area was difficult, but this oval Hickory White dining table expands to seat eight and has soft edges that fit the bill. The dining chairs were sourced from Highland House and were covered in the client’s own fabric, which contains all of the home’s colors. Overhead, a vintage antique nickel chandelier in a distressed light gray finish allows for fabulous unobstructed views.

182 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 183

Primary Bedroom: Soft hues of blue and taupe grays on the washable linen bedding companioned with a subtle Schumacher wallcovering create the desired relaxed mood in the primary suite. The channeled, fully upholstered taupe-gray headboard features clipped corners and is framed in a washed oak driftwood finish. The ceiling is a painted drywall with double step detail. An eye-catching oversized throw at the end of the bed complements the rest of the taupe elements in this neutral space.

Her Study: Because the wife desired her own private study, Scott borrowed a little space from the primary bath during construction to create a niche for the lady of the house. “My client’s desire for a chair that fit under the drawers made the chair search a long one. The client was also adamant we use performance fabric. It’s a reading chair that turns around so she can see the view behind her,” notes Scott.

“There were a lot of front-end meetings, and we had to communicate really well in the limited time frame we had. Because of Bay Colony’s restrictions, we could only work from May 1 to October 31, and Randi nailed it,” notes Susan Neilson, project manager at BCB Homes. “It was a quick and tight project with no room for error.” u

184 homeanddesign.net

“The primary bath was quite a challenge because of its odd shape and unusual layout,” recalls Scott. Dual water closets were a must, so the clients had to forgo a freestanding tub to accomplish this feat. In its place is an extra-large steam shower with multiple brass showerheads and handles from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, which complement the other fixtures in this primary bath.

homeanddesign.net 185
186 homeanddesign.net

Guest Bedroom: On the bed, Scott adds layers to complement the two bird paintings which drove the color palette and design in the second guest bedroom. “I don’t want guest rooms to be too specific. They must fit multiple purposes so they work for guests with varying tastes and needs,” notes Scott. “When I first started, bedding was all custom and dry cleaned but we don’t do that anymore. We want guests to feel comfortable.”

Guest Bathroom: The vanity is rift-cut white oak finished in a custom driftwood stain with a handmade near-white Pompeii quartz countertop to tie in with the ivory walls. “I use practical materials for guest bathroom countertops so I don’t worry about it staining, but I still want it to look pretty,” states Scott.

Vignette: The custom-made chest in the second guest room was sourced from Vanguard Furniture. An especially pretty piece, it sports an inlaid drawer with nickel-finished drop pulls. Scalloped edges on the free-form mirror provide a touch of opalescence against the white wall.

“The home was very compartmentalized. Because of that, the unit did not take advantage of some of the finest Gulf view exposures in all of Bay Colony,” explains Scott, adding, “It was decorated with yellows and pinks and florals and looked like a big hodgepodge.” The kitchen update was particularly important because the client likes to cook,” says Scott.

Today, the home’s open-concept style has a modern, chefworthy galley kitchen, where the sink faces the living area and the outdoor vistas. The casually elegant great room has a wall of new stacking glass doors so the homeowners can savor the commanding views surrounding their abode. Without being overt, a soft color palette of neutrals with subtle hues of blues and greens provides a sense of place. u

homeanddesign.net 187

“She (the wife) was very involved with selections and has very sophisticated taste. It made the project a lot fun,” says Neilson, and she adds, “The results of the beautiful and modern looking condominium speak for itself. I’m really proud of the results.”

Scott says, “It was a really fun — creative collaboration between ourselves, the builder, and the unit owner. We helped make her vision come true; it was incredible to see the transformation and how the family uses it.” n

Den: The charming den functions as a media and guest room. The tasteful John-Richard lamp boasts a crystal base topped with a scalloped shade. A tray comes with the cocktail ottoman and fits on the bottom shelf when unused. The artwork above the sofa is from the homeowners’ art collection.

Powder Room: Dusty blue and white wallpaper by Kravet adds punch to the appealing powder room. “My client loves the bird and thistle pattern,” states Scott, who adds that she wallpapers at least one room in every project. “People were afraid to use it for a long time because of removal, but all that has changed. Wallcoverings add so much texture and character to a space.”

Guest Bedroom (Opposite Right): The second guest bedroom was a real challenge because of its unusual size and angles. The caned nightstands were incorporated from the client’s furnishings and used to be a warm walnut brown, but Scott painted and glazed the pair to tie in with the other furniture. Somewhat unusual, the drop pendant wall sconces are striking. Sheer blue, taupe, and white stationary side panels flank the windows to soften the space further, while motorized roll screens offer guests privacy.

Outdoor Dining: A modern play on more traditional outdoor furniture, the powder-coated aluminum furnishings withstand the salty Gulf air and are lightweight, so they can easily be stacked inside when the clients leave for the season. For added comfort, the dining table is counter height. Dining chairs from Telescope Casual Furniture are a synthetic basket weave and allow airflow for added comfort. The outdoor flooring is a synthetic porcelain tile that emulates the home’s oak flooring.

Entry: Setting the tone for the rest of the home, the foyer looks into the commanding living room and straight out through the grand exit to the home’s verdant backyard, and beyond that, beautiful Miromar Lakes. “The elegant foyer is purposely low profile so you look out to the view,” says Faith Fix, AISD interior designer and principal of Freestyle Interiors. The striking flooring is a combination of Jerusalem stone and Nero Marquina marble tile. Original to the home and now quite rare, Jerusalem stone flooring runs throughout the rest of the home.

WWhen a vibrant couple from Madison, Wisconsin came upon a 6,224-square-foot Miromar Lakes Beach and Golf Club home, the avid boaters were thrilled. Not only did the Miromar Lakes property have an exquisite lakeside location, but the spacious residence is also ideal for entertaining. On the down side, the 15-year-old dwelling’s dark and dated Mediterranean style was not the bright and open design the pair desired in a second home. u

Family Room | Kitchen Nook: In the very comfortable family room, the soft, cream-colored sectional sofa by Cuzco is cloaked in chenille. Assorted custom throw pillows further soften the look in the casually elegant space. Custom made, the lacquered cocktail table is topped with a Moon Leaf Bowl by John-Richard. Directly behind the sofa is the open and airy breakfast space. Carved from a pantry, the space includes a custom built-in featuring a coffee bar. Gold cluster bowls on the informal dining table are by Zodax.

Living Room: “When the homeowners go to hotels, they love the look of really well-done hotel lobbies and wanted to emulate the style in their living room,” explains Fix. Two opposing sofas with beautiful channel styling reinforce the space’s formal appearance. Outfitted in a stone material, the Baker stone cocktail table looks almost iridescent. Book-matched with walnut wood paneling, the soaring two-story fireplace wall is clad in slabs of quartzite. Tying everything together is a custom chandelier by Hammerton Lighting.

Kitchen: Rather than replacing the original dark perimeter cabinetry, Fix painted it white and nestled appliances by Wolf and Sub-Zero throughout. A dated peninsula was removed and replaced with an expansive island. Custom barstools beneath the island are dressed in a soft horsehide. To add a little glitz, burnished gold was applied to the limestone range hood. “The fluted champagne pendants sparkle when turned on. I wanted a little bling in every room,” notes Fix.

To determine if renovating the five-bedroom residence made economic sense, the couple contacted Builder Matthew Shull with Gulfshore Homes. Faith Fix, AISD interior designer and principal of Freestyle Interiors, and Travis Hite, residential designer and president of Unique Hite Designs, joined forces with Shull. Together the talented trifecta elevated this glorious residence.

“When you are doing remodel work, it’s always a collaboration because you have to determine how far to take a remodel and hold hands at all times with the builder and architect to make sure what we envision can actually happen,” explains Fix. “And we always keep time constraints in mind and stay well within the budget.”

The team’s mission was to take away the luxurious abode’s Mediterranean influence and transform it into a classic contemporary — albeit, a little more formal than is typical of the style. Additionally, the husband loves purple, which resulted in the home’s unique contemporary color palette. u

204 homeanddesign.net

Wine Room: “The wine room’s inspiration started with a photo the homeowners took of a hotel bar while on vacation, and I’m tickled with how it came out. They use it all the time,” states Fix. Mirrors glued onto the ceiling are held in place via an interesting pattern of dimensional moulding. Sophisticated Christopher Guy chairs around the Nero-marble-topped cocktail table can be likened to women’s stilettos. Next to the wet bar is a secret door that leads to storage under the stairway to the second floor. The showstopping wine display holds 250 bottles of wine.

homeanddesign.net 205

Primary Bedroom: Romance abounds in the enchanting primary bedroom, heightened with expansive lake views and the exquisite pool area just beyond the bay windows. Baker furnishings and plush custom bedding further boost the romantic vibe. The custom multiple step tray ceiling is crowned with a crystal chandelier painted with gold tones to further accentuate the stylish lighting fixture. Created by Fabienne Vieyres, the gorgeous faux wash on the headboard wall creates an ombre effect.

Working and planning with the homeowners took about three months. “At our initial homeowners’ design concept presentation, we presented 3D renderings of the newly designed wine room and living room. Those spaces were the largest architectural concept changes. Their response was total delight, and they were sold on the designs immediately,” recalls Fix. u

206 homeanddesign.net

Primary Bathroom: The primary bath was a full gut and everything in it is new and reconfigured. Among the additions are the transom windows and the black, high-gloss, lacquered wooden wraparound on the walls. While resembling Calacatta marble, the walls are covered in much easier to clean large format porcelain slabs. The floating double vanities flank the soaking tub, where overhead a large Swarovski crystal chandelier reigns over the sumptuous space. “We wanted an elegant, more formal statement in the primary bath, and we wanted it to be spa-like and sexy and romantic,” delights Fix.

The oversized steam shower is equipped with an electronic shower system and steam unit. A floor-mounted tub filler was applied to the freestanding tub. All plumbing fixtures were sourced from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. The tile casing around the shower door was pulled away from the wall to allow LED lighting to be installed around the shower area. “At night, it looks like a beautiful LED backlit stone detail and is very dramatic,” says Shull.

homeanddesign.net 207

Family Loft: Natural light — in part from the grand exit — spills generously into the family loft. A cheerful getaway space for guests, the multiuse area includes a sleeper sofa. Clad in chenille, the cushy, recycled woodframed chairs were sourced from Holly Hunt. Pretty purple tones in the grasscloth covered television wall pull in tones from the credenza. “We always like a cabinet below the television to anchor and hold game equipment,” says Fix.

Guest Bathroom & Bedroom: Situated at the front of the house, this main floor guest bedroom has two full beds with channeled headboards covered in a lush platinum linen.

Green grasscloth walls and a large shower with a bench increase the comfort of this bedroom’s en suite bath, complete with dual sinks and understated white cabinets.

208 homeanddesign.net

Once the clients were on board, it took around six months to implement the changes. The formal dining room was transformed into the chic wine room it is today. Removing the living room bar allowed the trio to fashion a grand exit off the living room to the lanai, providing the needed flow for large gatherings. Additionally, the primary bedroom suite received a full gut, and the theater room was converted into a bedroom.

Without increasing the square footage, the team still managed to create more living space. “We cleaned the home up and redesigned existing spaces to make better use of them,” details Hite. u

Guest Bedroom: Overlooking the front of the house, the charming secondfloor guest bedroom comes with a Juliet Balcony. Bedding in the inviting space is from Classic Home and the geometric-patterned draperies are from Fabricut. Four Hands sourced the modern white chair at the foot of the bed. “Guest bedrooms should always have a place to sit and allow guests to get away a little bit,” Fix says.

homeanddesign.net 209

Front Elevation: Precast concrete features cast into form before installation — such as the ubiquitous columns — were removed from the front elevation, including in the garage. Windows were squared when feasible, and the formerly sand-toned window casing mouldings were painted black. “This home was hardcore Mediterranean. Now it is especially nice because it had some existing arches that we were able to keep. They add interest,” states Hite.

Rear Elevation: Because the original pool has a beach entry and is so large, it remains untouched with only the pool tile refreshed. On the lanai, the grand exit can be seen in full, where motorized hurricane shutters and access panels by Castle Services of Southwest Florida protect the home from the elements. The architectural feature from Andersen Windows & Doors — sourced through Florida Wood Window & Door — replaced an off-center bar. In addition to flow, the exit seamlessly unites the home’s indoor/outdoor spaces and allows natural light to brighten both the first and second floors.

“Instead of getting rid of all the Tuscan elements, Faith was tasked with blending the two and going more toward contemporary, but at the same time using Tuscan Mediterranean materials to accent the modern elements. The result is a home that is timeless,” states Shull.

The entire team is as delighted with the outcome as the homeowners. “They are such a fun couple, and once we built their trust, they relaxed and we all had a blast,” says Fix. n

Emily James Gallery

In the heart of Naples’ 5th Avenue South courtyard behind Baker’s Shoes Emily@EmilyJamesArt.com www.EmilyJamesArt.com 239-777-3283 Emily James “Afternoon Colors”, 48” x 48”

Mirrored in the lake, the homes glow from within through expansive windows from Andersen Windows & Doors, sourced through Naples Lumber. Architect Steven Jallad of MHK Architecture points out that, conversely, “This image beautifully captures an element we strive for in our design, which is bringing in light from the outside. As much light as you see pouring out, that much will pour in to create a light and airy daytime interior.” Decorative diagonal brackets under the roof trusses tie the homes together.

AArt Friedman is a man of incredible vision. When he and his interior designer wife, Lorraine Paige, first espied the Pine Ridge Estates property that was to become their labor of love, it had been in foreclosure for five years. “The lake was covered in green slime, the riprap rock edging was black, and the shallows were crowded with weeds,” recalls Friedman. Together with landscape architect Keith Morrow of Morrow Design Studio, Friedman directed the expansion of the lake and construction of a bulkhead around it, giving the water feature a smooth, flat edge, and the property a second driveway. Landscaped with littoral plants and later enhanced with a lighted fountain, the lake became the focal point of the property. u

Entry: The silvery latan palm trees will eventually top the roof, and the duo of sago palms will expand to four feet wide. At 10 feet high and 16 feet wide, the custom steel and glass doors provide a view through the rear of the house. To accent the airy, lightfilled entry, the design team chose to forego a knee wall in the staircase. White oak flooring continues up the stair treads.

224 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 225
226 homeanddesign.net

An open floor plan and volume were important to the homeowners, so Jallad designed a two-story living room. No matter where you are in the room, you can see the lake out front or the pool and patio out back because both sets of chairs swivel. Paige chose Restoration Hardware for the indoor furniture, declaring, “Comfort above all!” The breezeway above moves you from one end of the home to the other with windows overlooking the lake.

homeanddesign.net 227

Kitchen: Paige surrounded a Cristallo-topped island with Loom rope weave counter stools by Essentials for Living and illuminated the seating area with a trio of pendants from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. The indoor-outdoor concept gets a boost from the custom installation of a NanaWall bi-level folding glass wall, which traverses a second island that bisects the outdoor living area. With no center post to obstruct the view, the transition is seamless.

Lanai: The lanai boasts ambiance and convenience with a gas fireplace and wall-mounted television, providing outdoor entertainment. Roll-down shutters and screens can be easily lowered to provide protection against the elements. Rows of perfectly placed recessed lights march across the ceilings throughout the home. “We had a lighting study completed for us,” explains Friedman. “As a result, we installed 150 recessed lights. You can never have too much light — it can always be dimmed.”

228 homeanddesign.net

The couple then formed a game plan — renovate the guest house and move into it, then raze the main house and build anew. Friedman drew on his experience as a division president for WCI, choosing MHK Architecture for the design work. “We sat down with the MHK team, and they designed four different houses! It took two years to design the house and 13 months to build it. So, I’d say patience was the most important part of the project,” emphasizes Friedman.

Siting the 7,400-square-foot home on the 1.67-acre property was the team’s primary focus. Architect with MHK Architecture Steven Jallad says, “The question of how to capture the experience of the lake at the front and the pool in the rear dictated the design. The see-through living room that opens to both places gives the home that anchor.” It turned out to be one of his favorite pieces of the design. u

homeanddesign.net 229

Friedman notes that the home “couldn’t be in a better location. You’re five minutes from everything, but you feel like you’re in the country.” Part of that impression is owed to the meticulous care he and Morrow took in landscaping the property. They worked together to collect a lot of the existing plants on the site and transplant them to the guest house to get them out of harm’s way. “When enough of the main house was done, we moved them back, including some 35-foot-tall trees that we successfully transplanted!” exclaims Morrow. A screen of coconut palms provides privacy at the rear of the property. Royal palms, Macarthur palms, adonidia palms (Christmas palms), date palms, heliconias, and gingers dot the homesite with tropical accents. The outdoor shower is surrounded by a mature podocarpus hedge. u

230 homeanddesign.net

Primary Bedroom: Furnished with clean-lined, transitional pieces, the primary bedroom offers a peaceful lakefront alcove, where a pair of Alison Craig Home Furnishings chairs swivel to either enjoy the view or the cozy indoor atmosphere. Ceilings of nickel gap shiplap unify the rooms throughout the home, while the placement of box beams differentiate them. Here, they form a vaulted ceiling surrounded by soffit.

Primary Bathroom: With square footage equal to that of the primary bedroom, Paige declares, “I don’t need a bathroom this big!” to which Architect Jallad sagely replies, “Everyone needs a bathroom this big!” Floored in marble, with quartz countertops, the expansive space also boasts a vanity. It is the shower area that sets the stage for spa-like opulence. “It’s a human car wash!” Friedman jokes of the 11 shower heads. For him, the crowning glory is the steam shower. “It was a deal-breaker for me,” Friedman states emphatically. “You step in there and leave all your stress behind.”

homeanddesign.net 231

The homes were designed with an eye toward MHK Architecture’s signature Old Florida style. Jallad calls it “Transitional, not exactly just Old Florida, as a typical Old Florida design would not blend siding and stucco.”

“Our intent was to accommodate any type of living style,” says Paige of her deliberately transitional décor. Friedman adds, “Our vision was always to be timeless. Elegant, but generic.”

Paige concludes, “We can’t say enough great things about the MHK Architecture team. They helped us to create the dream, and they made it fun!” n

Rear Elevation | Pool | Outdoor Kitchen: From the heated waterfall spa or saltwater pool, one can look back through the living room and see the lake.

Slightly different elevations in the paved patio sections create depth and segregate the spaces. A central game lawn of artificial turf; a trellised patio leading into the air-conditioned man cave; a gas firepit; and a beach complete with hammocks strung between coconut palms illustrate Friedman’s claim that this is “a great entertaining house.” The outdoor kitchen is furnished with an ice maker, beer keg, and another of Friedman’s non-negotiable items — a pizza oven. Even a disruption in electrical service won’t stop the fun — the homeowners are prepared with a whole-house generator.

WWhile there are some interior design trends we hope never to see again — think avocado green appliances or linoleum flooring — there are others that deserve a second look. Gold is one of them. Not the shiny, brassy gold of years past, but a warm, burnished, flat gold that adds a subtle gleam and depth to anything it touches. “Expect to see more of it,” predicts Lisa Guild of LMG Design Consultants. “Gold is effective when paired with clean, crisp colors,” Guild explains. She used golden touches judiciously in this Gulf-front high-rise condominium remodel, building the gold and slate blue color palette around favorite pieces the client brought to the home.

Guild focuses on the client’s aesthetic rather than her own. “We have a huge breadth of projects and looks, but we try never to do the same thing twice, so the end result is the client’s vision, not ours,” says Guild. This approach and the firm’s commitment to teamwork and collaboration — involving their clients from day one through the install — has earned LMG Design Consultants a remarkable referral business. “Almost all of our business — 98% of it — is based on referrals, either from prior clients or builders,” notes Guild. u

238 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 239
240 homeanddesign.net

Successfully producing a project for someone well versed in the field of design is especially satisfying. “These owners have a love and affinity for architecture. They appreciate detail and things with patina — a history — and this shows in their selections,” Guild says.

Driving this design was the owners’ desire to entertain a large number of people in a relatively small space. Focusing on how the owners wanted to live in the space, Guild accomplishes this by using dedicated areas and offers the bar/lounge area as an example. “This is in proximity to the kitchen, with an open pass-through, so it encourages interaction. The space plan allows for a lot of socialization.” As another example, “The conversation area with four swivel chairs that can be positioned to watch the sunset is a beautiful way to say goodbye to the day.” u

homeanddesign.net 241
242 homeanddesign.net

Mirrors play an integral role in this design concept. Smoked glass subway mirrors back the bar area; the kitchen features appliances from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery; and a marble and metal tile inlay punctuates the marble-look oversized porcelain tile floor. In the dining area, a ceiling box the same size as the table is also lined with wallpaper. “Oh yes, wallpaper is huge again,” reports Guild.

Guild pulled the gold and slate-blue color palette into the primary suite via the bed’s stacked velvet headboard and footboard. The fabrics used to carry out the colorway were selected from International Design Source. Unseen is the expansive walk-in closet designed and installed by Inspired Closets. The dark wood tones on the case goods echo those found in the dining chairs. In the master bath, deep blue accents appear in the linens, accessories, and decorative wall ceramics; and in the sconces and cabinet hardware — you guessed it — a touch of gold. n

TThe owners of this newly purchased high-rise unit knew one thing for certain — they wanted the design team that had created the interior of their golf course home to tackle their skyhigh gulf-view renovation. “That is the epitome of professional praise,” says Diana Hall of Diana Hall Design. Design partner Elizabeth Manchego warmly agrees, “It’s a treat to hear a client say of your previous design, ‘We loved this so much we wanted to incorporate it.’”

Hall and Manchego injected a bit of fun into the design, visible from the elevator. A sense of whimsy permeates the entry through double doors where an illuminated school of blown-glass fish — one going against the current — can be seen swimming along a blue ripple-like wall behind a turquoise bubble chandelier. u

homeanddesign.net 251

The previous home was contemporary and transitional. “It had the same mood but entirely different colors,” explains Hall. The homeowners went from beige and greige to white, light, and bright. “Blues and turquoise were important,” Hall continues. “The client wanted a coastal appeal, but a very sophisticated one.” The dynamic design duo delivered, with light European oak floors from Hadinger Flooring topped with area rugs in those sought-after blues.

A selection of sculptural chandeliers from Wilson Lighting, including one with Italian blown glass rods suspended over the dining table, add sparkle throughout the home. u

252 homeanddesign.net
homeanddesign.net 253

Furnishings and art chosen from International Design Source are sleek and low profile. Clearly, the coastal view is a key element; nothing hinders the eye from traveling through unadorned windows and sliders to the lush greenery of the golf course and shimmering blues of Estero Bay — and beyond that, the azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Floating shelves, an underlit kitchen island, and a myriad of other details quietly contribute to the sense of being aloft and adrift.

Reflecting on the light and bright design aesthetic, Hall notes that white walls are currently trending. The walls of this home were painted in Sherwin-Williams Spare White. “Lightening up wall color allows a lot of light in. People are picking warmer floor colors, less gray in general,” adds Manchego.

Creating a flow of space by tearing down walls, relocating a drain in the primary bath to accommodate a freestanding soaking tub, and taking on the challenge of adding detail to unusually shaped ceilings is serious design business indeed. n

“We had to decide where a staircase could be added without disrupting a previous remodel” recalls Julie Howlett of L Design Studio.

Great Room: “We needed a smart solution for this room so everyone would have a place to sit that offered not only a view of the television but also out to the water,” explains Interior Designer Lyndsey Davis Nicklas of L Design Studio. That solution involved a curved sofa and round ottoman from Vanguard, oriented toward both the opposite media center and the balcony doors at once. A dividing wall wrapped in teak serves to separate the distinct open-plan spaces while also hiding a support column.

homeanddesign.net 261

Kitchen: Sleek white cabinetry recedes into the space, making it feel larger. “Using taller cabinets in a low-ceilinged space required us to do a lot of planning before construction to make sure the doors would open smoothly,” recalls Thuman. Clever space planning also allows up to ten people to gather and converse at the two islands. The acrylic-base bar stools from Vanguard offer stylish seating for pulling up to the white quartz counter area.

Dining Room: Another modern light fixture in a bright chrome from Wilson Lighting directs focus to the vibrant Maggie DeMarco abstract hanging in the dining area. “We repeated the use of a glass-top dining table from the sixth floor to keep the room light and airy,” Nicklas contributes. The walls throughout the condo are painted in Sherwin-Williams Pure White for the same purpose, and the color also helps fulfill the clients’ request for a more contemporary and clean space.

WWhen former clients brought L Design Studio and PBS Contractors a unique request to join a previously remodeled sixth-floor condo to the unit above it, they had full confidence the two companies would be able to make their dreams a reality. The only question was — how?

The two companies were challenged with how to connect the two units seamlessly and provide a remodel of the seventhfloor unit — all while meeting the homeowners’ need for a vacation home accommodating up to sixteen people. Adding to the challenge was the small size of each condo unit, the seventh floor’s 8-foot ceilings, the choppy layout and dated finishes, and the clients’ desire to access the upper unit via an internal staircase rather than the building’s elevator or stairwell. “It had never been done before, and we all had lots of questions,” recalls Senior Designer Julie Howlett of L Design Studio. “We had to decide where a staircase could be added without disrupting the previous remodel.”

“Anything could have gone wrong,” adds Daniel Thuman of PBS Contractors. “Cutting a hole in the ceiling’s two-foot concrete slab left zero room for error.” During the preconstruction phase, the team worked through the logistics via brainstorming and countless drawings, and with the help of X-ray scans of the structure from an engineering firm. The ingenious solution involved repurposing one closet and half of another to install a spiral staircase in a circular stairwell that then became a focal point for the sixth-floor unit’s entryway. Lit with LEDs and highlighted by the close proximity of bold, colorful art from the clients’ collection, the staircase is a foundational piece of the contemporary, eclectic design of both units. u

homeanddesign.net 263

But that wasn’t the end of the remodeling challenges the seventh floor presented. “The architecture wasn’t straight, the walls weren’t parallel, and nothing was square,” explains Thuman. Top of mind was the homeowners’ love of bold colors, modern lines, and open spaces, and their desire for a vacation home that could comfortably sleep all of their family members. So, both companies drew extensively from their years of experience developing creative design solutions to uniquely solve these challenges before even one wall was removed or one nail driven.

“All the loose ends were taken care of before construction,” says Thuman. “We all made sure the client was happy first before anything was put in place. It was a multistep process with lots of touchpoints between PBS Contractors and L Design Studio.” u

Staircase: The pièce de résistance for the seventh-floor remodel is the spiral staircase. The powder-coated stair system was manufactured offsite and shipped to the project ready to assemble. “The team spent a lot of time working on the drawings to make sure the opening was the right size for the staircase,” remembers Thuman. Another Maggie DeMarco painting ties the two floors together with its bright colors and contemporary theme.

Art Niche: A special niche off the great room spotlights a modern art piece by painter Helen Zarin that served as the inspiration for the clients’ vision for the space. “We really built a lot of our design choices for colors and the contemporary style off of this painting,” recollects Howlett. Vanguard ottomans obtained through International Design Source are covered in Tuck Water performance fabric and can be pulled into the room for additional mobile seating.

Great Room: Vanguard swivel chairs offer guests a choice of views between the television or the Gulf outside the balcony doors in this great room. The feature wall uses a multilayer paint and plaster faux finish to resemble concrete, and a shelf helps ground the television in the space. The luxury vinyl tile from Hadinger Flooring matches the color of the engineered hardwood used on the sixth floor, but is much more durable.

264 homeanddesign.net

Primary Bathroom: The primary bathroom was originally carved into multiple spaces that included numerous built-in closets and cabinetry with darker wood finishes. The design team completely reworked the space to be more open but still provide the storage the client desired. White-on-white ceramic wall tile in the shower from Design Works highlights the textural interest of the chevron mosaic on the floor. Sleek chrome fixtures from Naples Plumbing Studio add sparkle to the cool tones of the expansive color palette.

Primary Bedroom: The primary bedroom has a spectacular water view of Doctor’s Pass, and the client desired a restful, calm space that still looked modern and contemporary. The motorized lounge chair from Scan Design offers a soothing spot to relax and enjoy the view, and the leather-wrapped headboard is sleek, practical, and is a breeze to clean. The bench at the foot of the bed is adorned with a velvet fabric for a touch of luxury.

homeanddesign.net 265

Guest Bedroom: Another Helen Zarin piece energizes the guest bedroom with lively color and movement. “The clients weren’t afraid to go bold in this home,” explains Nicklas, “and their love of abstract art was something we carried over from the previous remodel of their sixth-floor space.” Geometric patterns on the pillows and bedding echo back to the main living space, and a durable, custom-sized glass top for the nightstand adds a hotel-like touch.

Bunkroom Sitting Area: A sitting area in the home’s “bunkroom” is the perfect spot to highlight a colorful art piece from the clients’ collection. Dark grey leather on the Scan Design chair adds desired durability for this kids’ space, while a poof of purple Mongolian wool makes it fun. A small white side table blends with the walls — another clever smallspace design trick.

Bunkroom: The “bunkroom” was designed to sleep as many of the clients’ grandkids as possible, which L Design Studio accomplished by using versatile Room and Board bunkbeds. “The selection of allwhite bed frames was intentional,” adds Howlett. “Their simplicity of design helps the room feel larger.” Another technique they employed was to paint the walls, ceiling, and base trim all one light color to enhance the feeling of expansiveness. Wall sconces instead of lamps add even more space.

266 homeanddesign.net

The result: a playful, colorful space full of art and modern touches that honors the first remodel and functions as a stand-alone unit with enough room for family and guests — a true testament to the power of collaboration and creative problem solving. n

Powder Bath: Statement lighting pieces are one major feature homeowners are investing in when they remodel, and this matte black oversized pendant is a perfect example. Coupled with a bold geometric-patterned wallpaper from Philip Jeffries and black fixtures, the overthe-top style turns an otherwise ordinary powder bath into a showstopping room. The counter is a matte brushed quartz and mirrors the lines and color of the kitchen island for continuity of design between rooms.

Balcony: The condo’s balcony was too narrow for a standard-sized dining table, so the design team improvised with a two-foot-wide countertop height bar. Additionally, the existing sliding glass doors were modified to add more space. “We brought the doors in on the column to increase the room on the patio side,” recounts Thuman. With the doors opened, it creates a continuous visual line from the great room to the balcony and beyond to the water view.

Designer David Fruscione of Republic of Decor is passionate about wallpaper. “I love specifying wallpaper!” he exclaims. He credits the medium with a unique ability to bring texture into a room and personalize the space. Nowhere is this more evident than in “Urban Retreat,” a design project he undertook for clients who wanted their Naples condominium — a second residence — to capture a bit of the downtown vibe. Familiar with his design aesthetic from previous work and numerous referrals, the clients gave Fruscione a great deal of creative freedom, saying, “You know what we like, just make it cool.”

Fruscione proceeded to do just that, giving the space a sophisticated, edgy environment by grounding it in neutrals and textures with subtle pops of color and embellished with unusual wallpaper. A layered mixture of materials and finishes provided the contrast needed to give the rooms an urban atmosphere, creating the chic getaway the clients desired. u

274 homeanddesign.net

Using the choices provided by BCBE Construction as a starting point, Fruscione upgraded the finishes to include wide plank wood floors made with European white oak in an ultra-matte finish from The Vintage Loft Collection — with a majority of the planks being eight feet long — from Real Wood Floors. He also turned to a local company to bring in special tile for the kitchen backsplash and primary bath walls and floor. Even the closets received special attention, with Empire Closets building out every closet to the owners’ specifications. “I have worked with both companies before on several different projects and they are great partners. I knew we would find materials that would elevate this space,” Fruscione explains.

In total, the customization achieved Fruscione’s goal for this unit in the MHK Architecture master-designed building — to avoid a predictable coastal aesthetic. u

“As a designer, you must be able to understand your client. When you design their home, you are embarking on a project with people, building a relationship. Some projects can last a year or longer. You ask questions, provide inspiration, you learn to read your client. You also inspire them and educate them. You expose them to out-of-the-box thinking. That’s when the magic happens!” Fruscione enthuses. “A dream client will trust you entirely, they like your point of view. This client was one. For example, they trusted me to create a beautiful, cohesive environment for their pre-teen daughter’s room. I had to make sure the room would grow with her, would not feel too juvenile or youthful. For the headboard wall, we spent hundreds of hours choosing sophisticated, timeless images with a Bohemian, organic feel; sayings that were empowering and feminine and elicited confidence.” Fruscione created a digital file of the chosen images, then sent it to a California company that created the custom wallpaper.

“We spent the longest amount of time to get this one room right,” he says. The daughter’s reaction? “She loved the room, was obsessed with it, so much so that she wanted to create a version of it for her room in the family’s primary residence, so we’re doing it!” n

Isles of Capri is Naples’ hidden gem surrounded by sparkling Gulf Waters. Leland L “Doc” Loach happened upon what would one day become Isles of Capri in 1955 on an impromptu trip to Marco Island. He purchased four mangrove islands, totaling approximately 600 acres, which he developed to create the idyllic paradise that exists today. Isles of Capri is now a charming community comprised of single family homes and condominiums along with restaurants and marinas. Residents today are still able to enjoy all of the activities that originally drew Loach to the mangrove islands – boating, exceptional fishing, kayaking, and more – now with the convenience of every amenity available in nearby Marco Island and Naples.

Bay Design Store transformed this Tampa home for a retired couple looking to downsize their space but not their style. This home’s amazing beach view was the inspiration for the design. “All of our design work reflects our beautiful, coastal environment with a relaxed, elegant twist,” states Susan Bay of Bay Design Store. “Our firm was a natural fit for this project, and Interior Designer Jill Kersey instinctively knew what to do with the space.”

Taking her cue from the incredible view, Jill used creamy whites, pale blue glass, brass accents, and mirrors to add sparkle. Lucite chairs, beautiful artwork, unique accessories, and unexpected textures and fabrics add interest throughout the entire home. This beautiful waterfront home is a stunning example of Bay Design Store’s work — beautiful, elegant, and relaxed. u

This beguiling home sits on stilts on the Venetian Bay and is reminiscent of a long and narrow townhome. The total renovation by Naples Kitchen & Bath and Diana Hall Design includes a complete update of the interior spaces.

This jewelry box of a home has been transformed to a chic and elegant space overlooking sparkling waters. Upon entering is a gorgeous stairway with continuous hardwood floors, and at the top of the stairs is a gorgeous view of the main living area. The once dark galley kitchen has been given new life with a taupe gray cabinet by Crystal Cabinet Works, accented by a stunning custom gold hood vent and gold hardware throughout. New fully integrated appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf, and Bosch blend seamlessly with this kitchen design. The premium cabinet storage has two decorative open cabinets with recessed lighting that illuminate the gorgeous natural coral, flanking the brass hood, and includes a coffee station and pantry storage. The Cristallo quartzite waterfall over the exposed bar edge coupled with Lucite counter stools add elegance and make this the perfect place for guests to have cocktails while their host is working in the kitchen. u

The great room is the epitome of elegant entertaining. The dry bar with hand-painted gold cabinets and a stunning metallic marble backsplash creates the perfect space to prepare cocktails without leaving guests. The mini fridge has been beautifully camouflaged with a wooden door front, blending seamlessly with the surrounding cabinetry. The sofas and swivel chairs are from Hickory Chair and have a neutral tone to complement the rust, ochre, and beige tones in the rug and throughout the space. The client wanted her Hermes tray and throw blanket to be the stars of the show in the living space; they make a statement while not feeling out of place. Serving as the entry console is a custom 102” locally made floating cabinet in a metallic linen finish, which assists in keeping the small space open and airy. u

Down a long hallway of eclectic art, the primary suite keeps with the warm bronze tones. This Fairfield bed and shagreen and gold nightstands complete the look. Rust colored grasscloth was added to the existing arch. The main bathroom has been transformed from traditional to a more transitional style. Spectacular carved Carrera marble fits together to create blossoms along the tub and shower wall, while the carefully selected cabinetry provides optimal storage space. The challenge was to incorporate a free-standing tub and still have ample space for a sizeable shower. u

Not to be missed is the powder room, which is like being inside a life-size jewelry box. This space has lots of glam packed into a modest sized bathroom. The main wall is adorned with marble and gold mosaic tile, exclusively found at NKB, accompanied by the beautiful gold and glass sconces. The rest of the walls are dressed in a silk grasscloth by Phillip Jeffries in a neutral tone. Completing this magical space is the lacquered floating vanity, underlit with LED strip lighting.

With a coastal appeal, this guest bedroom is a symphony of seafoam green. The wall color, bedding ensemble, and drapery all play off each other, creating a serene retreat for visiting family and friends. The Bungalow 5 nightstands and dresser are covered in white lacquered grasscloth, keeping with the light coastal feel in this space. Accommodating two queen beds for guests while maintaining an open and inviting space was accomplished with the use of simple moldings applied to the headboard wall, making the wall feel longer than it is while also adding interest. u

Tucked away on the third-floor landing is a cozy den, which can also serve as an office space or storage. The cream sofa accompanied by the two chocolate-brown fur ottomans add a touch of whimsy, giving this room a playful vibe. The client’s fish art above the sectional is enhanced by the unexpected Hermes Orange tray ceiling.

Overall, this home had its challenges due to the age of the building and the long, narrow floor plan, but Naples Kitchen & Bath and Diana Hall Design made it work with specially designed spaces perfectly suited for this client. n
