A Touch of Gold_22-N-V2

® Fall 2022

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

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

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.

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
