Formal Living Room: Covered in soft gray, a pair of Lee sofas with tufted back and seat cushions invite lounging in the sun-drenched, eastern exposure formal living room, where a trio of double windows takes advantage of the two-story ceiling in this space. The serene atmosphere is enhanced using Sherwin-Williams’ iconic Agreeable Gray on the walls and white trim on the window frames Above the slim wood and metal coffee table, strands of crystal span the metal ribs of the chandelier while droplets shimmer down the length of each. Delicate branches of fan coral, custom-framed in acrylic, echo the chandelier’s airy ambiance.

Kitchen: A pair of mercury glass and gilded iron five-bulb Lorford Smoke Bell Lanterns from Visual Comfort glow above the island’s Premium Natural Calacatta quartz countertop. Glossy white subway tile is laid in a herringbone pattern on the backsplash. The quartet of kitchen chairs, grouped at a drop-down counter of reclaimed lumber, are upholstered in the same fabric as the dining room chairs, allowing for expanded seating. The soothing color Ice Cube from Benjamin Moore covers the walls within. The perimeter countertops were clad in Piatra Gray Caesarstone to camouflage spills. Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances were installed, including a 48inch six-burner gas range. Using European oak flooring from Duchateau throughout the first floor unifies the rooms. Litze fixtures in matte black with Brilliance Luxe Gold trim from Brizo serve the kitchen, coordinating with the cabinets and drawer handles.



on the mouth of South Coconut Bayou, the view features the tranquil waters of Roberts Bay beyond the mangroves. The main objective for this redesign was to move the entire kitchen to the opposite end of the home. Trinity Construction & Design partner Jay Schoenfelder insists, “This is one of the more accessible renovation projects I have been involved with! The Pecky Interiors team was very organized, and we had a very good plan to begin with; the scope of the project was well defined. We all — contractor, designer, and owner — understood it from the very beginning. The owner was confident in us, trusting of our opinions, and that shows in a project,” Schoenfelder continues. “He let us put our own thoughts and designs into the project.” Patricia Estes of Pecky Interiors appreciated that most when it came to the kitchen. “I love doing kitchens and with the degree of latitude the owner extended to us, I kept calling it my kitchen!” Estes laughs. “Seriously, the owner okayed most everything; there were few changes.” u 189

Campbell Cabinetry Designs Co-Owner Darrin Campbell is a third-generation member of the family-owned business, and he convinced Schoenfelder and Estes that the flip-flop would get more light into the room and create a view of Roberts Bay. Skeptical at first, Estes soon shared Campbell’s vision, specifying light colors for the cabinets and walls, bright white tile for the backsplash, and a brilliant Calacatta quartz for the kitchen’s central island. The new room arrangements resulted in open spaces filled with light and movement. u


In addition, this makeover features recentered box beams in the gathering room, ceiling details in the primary bedroom, new hardwood floors, and an extensive outdoor entertainment deck.

Dinette: “The existing dinette entry was small and did not provide a view from the kitchen. So, structurally, we opened it up as much as possible,” Estes explains. Hunter Douglas shades diffuse the light from the trio of floor-to-ceiling windows in the new space. The focal point is Ironies’ Asilah Chandelier, an eightlight candelabra set amidst a quatrefoil openwork drum in natural Black Capiz shell veneer.

Formal Dining: The formal dining area is located at one end of the family room. Glass-fronted display cabinets in a warm greige finish flank the window. Estes surrounded the owners’ dining table with Parsons-style upholstered chairs, elegant in their simplicity.

The project originated with Pecky Interiors, whose downtown Sarasota showroom originally drew the homeowners in to shop among the furniture, gifts, and accessories. Having collaborated on half a dozen projects previously, Estes brought in Trinity Construction & Design. The team was tasked with reimagining the first floor of the 6,400-square-foot home. Sited on the north end of Siesta Key, the six-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath home was built in 2009, toward the end of the Mediterranean style surge. Characteristic of that style, the house was awash in shades of brown. Mismatched wall colors and an assortment of flooring materials combined to present a choppy, uncoordinated décor. u

Family Room: In gilded iron, the clean lines of Visual Comfort’s Darlana chandeliers by E.F. Chapman draw the eye upward to the vaulted, beamed ceiling. “Removing the corbels and refinishing the beams made a dramatic difference in the family room, bringing it more into the present,” says Schoenfelder. Estes chose a pair of Verellen leather Jan club chairs to complement the owners’ sofa. The Lortz cocktail ottoman in leather features two lift-out trays, while the judicious use of area rugs defines spaces. 191

Gathering Room: Moving the kitchen called for recentering the box beams in the adjoining gathering room. A second entry to the home can be seen through the cased opening. The entry table does double duty as a buffet or wine-tasting table when needed. Windows were removed to create the focal wall, which features the Reflejos palmiers panoramic wallpaper from Maison Lévy. Benjamin Moore’s Beach Glass quietly supports the watery image.

Entertainment Wall: Walnut was used abundantly inside the cabinetry throughout the kitchen. Here it takes center stage as the background for the entertainment wall, designed by Estes and built by Campbell Cabinetry Designs. Reeded doors add some texture to the wall. Above, brass pharmacy lights echo the door and drawer pulls. Overhead, a sleek, three-blade Haiku fan cools the room.


Primary Bedroom: Brightened up with Benjamin Moore’s Gentle Grey, the headboard wall in the primary bedroom rises to meet a cathedral ceiling clad in Synergy Wood Southern Pine tongue and groove stained in Colonial, a rich brown. The bed from Lee Industries, upholstered in a fine linen, is dressed in Matouk bedding with custom pillows. It is flanked by a pair of Tribeca nightstands from Century Furniture. Estes recovered the owners’ bench and slipped a Kravet area rug underneath it all. 193


The duo removed the heavy, outdated Mediterranean-style elements, smoothed the walls, and replaced ornate fixtures and trims with sleek counterparts. They tempered the overabundance of brown with shades of gray and laid one style of flooring, in one color, throughout the first floor. “The flooring was an excellent choice,” Schoenfelder says. Estes complemented the few furniture pieces the owner wished to retain with new ones from various manufacturers in Pecky Interior’s Inshowroom.approximately

six months, the team accomplished the transformation. Schoenfelder credits the expedited timeline on having all the details communicated clearly and understood early in the project, saying, “It worked like clockwork.” n

Deck: A new stacked stone fire table holds court amidst a group of swivel chairs positioned here to facilitate conversations with those on the lanai or inside the home. A trio of stacking sliders opens the entire family room and dining room to the outside. The home’s original Mediterranean design is evidenced by the terra-cotta barrel tile roof and adobe stucco finish, but from the inside out, the renovated interior space says smooth, elegant transitional coastal living.

Lanai: The spacious outdoor entertainment area encompasses several seating options. Using the original travertine, Schoenfeld rebuilt the extensive outdoor deck. In addition, Pecky Interiors team member Candayce Shaw designed an all-new outdoor grill and service area at one end of the lanai.
