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

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


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. 253

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

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.
