M

att Ozturk, president of The Granite Place, knows Southwest Floridians have impeccable taste. He travels the world — Italy, Brazil, India, Turkey and Spain — in search of the best quality natural stone available. That commitment to quality shines through the moment you walk through the showroom door. With an inventory of more than 200 colors, the showroom is like an art gallery of stones ranging from classic Carrera marble to bold Blue Bahia granite. Each stone is top quality, from basics to truly breathtaking exotics with vivid color patterns and motion. In fact, the Granite Place’s selection is so unique that customers fly in from out of state — even out of country — to select exotics that cannot be found anywhere else! Ozturk believes that a key to success is to personally inspect and hand select the stone he imports. He searches for balanced pattern and movement, popular stones that are “of the moment,” rare finds, and quality. Area fabricators, designers, builders, contractors and cabinet makers rely on The Granite Place to provide the products their own clients demand and expect. To ensure only the highest quality is delivered, the well-trained staff at the Granite Place only utilizes stones that are free of fissures and cracks to avoid problems during fabrication. Since opening its doors in 2005, this small family business has grown every year. The Granite Place now operates in two locations — Sarasota and North Port. Both locations have built their success and reputation on unrivaled customer service and the best selection of stone anywhere in the region. To see all that The Granite Place has to offer, visit the Sarasota showroom at 2328 N Washington Blvd., or view the full inventory online at thegraniteplace.net.

Our goal is to bring you the most talented builders, architects, interior designers, developers, real estate professionals and vendors that provide the highest quality products and services. I believe this edition is all of that and more. As the industry in Sarasota and Manatee counties continues to grow, we grow with it.

I am proud and honored to bring this inspiring collaboration and collection, and I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the very talented photographers, writers, proofreaders, graphic designers and sales team who work so hard to make us a success. We are a small but very mighty group who are passionate about what we do.

This enormous living room features 12-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of the stunning view over Sarasota Bay. Formality gives way to a family room ambience. Wicked Smart Homes installed an 80-inch plasma television in the custom-built credenza, concealed behind retractable panels and revealed with the touch of a button. The stained oak flooring, set in a herringbone pattern, was manufactured in Italy. Overhead trimless LED lighting by Delta, with speakers created in the shame shape and size, plus linear AC diffusers allow only clean ceiling lines. Farrow and Ball Joa’s White paint brings a warm glow to this and all other rooms in the condo.

HIGH TECH LIVING ON SARASOTA BAY HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1

O

One might expect to meet James Bond—shaken, not stirred martini in hand—in this jaw-dropping penthouse condominium high above Sarasota Bay. Creating an alluring mix of sophisticated finishes and high technology, the 6,211-square-foot space is a showpiece made for entertaining. The owners engaged Los Angeles-based interior designer Troy Adams when they decided to buy the upper floor of MK Equity’s Sansara building. Their goal was to totally redesign the space to accommodate two master suites and a central area, full of smart home gadgets worthy of Bond’s “Q.” Wicked Smart Homes installed hidden panels, mechanized lifts, and a kitchen controlled via iPhone. “As a designer, I know how rare it is for a client to be so open to doing such creative things as we were able to do with this project,” says Adams. The “we” he references is Rein Dunselman, a Dutch interior decorator, who has worked with the owners on several previous homes and who accompanied them on all the shopping expeditions that resulted in the condo holding only European furnishings. “The window treatments are from Italy. The doorknobs are from Belgium. Some of the furniture is from Thailand. The art collection is largely from Holland,” says Rein. “Troy and I spoke every day and I flew into LA to meet often, as all of our decisions were joint decisions between the two of us and the owners. It was absolutely fun and the result is brilliant.” u

Right: An iPad app controls the CES (concealed elevation system), raising the panel in the island containing cooking utensils in this gourmet kitchen. The small shepherd’s crook fixture next to the stainless Julien sink is a $12,000 “Top Brewer” system, controlled via iPhone app, capable of producing top-of-the-line lattes and cappuccinos—a must for the owner who roasts his own coffee beans. The waterfall countertop is Corian, a material shared by the custom-built cylindrical range hood. The cabinetry throughout the home, including panels concealing the refrigerator and freezer, is custom-made by the German company, Studio Becker. Two Miele microwaves—one steam and one convection—are set above two full-size Miele steam ovens from Monark Premium Appliances. On an adjacent wall, a linear gas fireplace and backlit bookcase add soft lighting to the room.

Below: A stainless and glass door opens into the fantastic climatecontrolled wine room; there the Wine Guardian system protects against the three dangers to wine: movement, light, and extreme temperature change. UV-LED lights back-light the acrylic shelves, which hold more than 1,000 bottles of wine. A stainless steel sliding ladder makes it easy to reach a favorite vintage.

Right: Dunselman provided the drop crystal pendant lights which hang from hidden escutcheons over the farmhouse table. The table, as well as the deep armchairs and all the home’s furnishings, were picked up during countless European shopping expeditions. To the right, paprika nubby cotton brings a pop of color to the casual dining area, behind which is a full bar. An integrated lift rises to reveal bottles, glasses and bar implements for creating craft cocktails for guests.

Under the same soaring ceiling, the formal dining space is delineated by a geometric ceiling detail. Spheres of steel intertwine to form the orb Crystorama chandelier from Lighting First. The dining table and chairs are from Century Furniture. The buffet is flanked by modern silver sconces with polished stainless steel from Corbett.

Above: A soft tomato shade is used on the custom upholstered bed in this first of two master suites. The color is picked up in the printed lampshades, the twin slipper chairs, in a stripe across the organic cotton bedding, and on the bed’s throw pillows. A contrasting print was used on the custom draperies, made in Italy. Above the bed hangs a black and white drawing by Dutch artist, Cathalijn Wouters, one of several art pieces from the owner’s collection. Below: Above the Caesarstone-topped, high-gloss lacquered cabinetry by Studio Becker, this master bath’s mirror is pulled away from the wall, allowing back-lit hidden panels for holding toiletries, to retract out of sight when not in use. The luxury Samuel Heath fixtures marry the best of European antiques with modern design. Porcelanosa tiles Dover Acero lead down the hall, past the private water closet and a vintage mirror, to the rest of the master bath suite.

HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1


Matt Kihnke of MK Equity, developer of the Sansara tower, agrees. “In my opinion there is not a more dramatic and inspirationally designed condominium on Florida’s West Coast,” says Kihnke, who believes that the Sansara, has set a standard for downtown, boutique living in Sarasota. Kihnke declares, “Sansara offers the finest and most unique of luxury residences.”

Above: A fixed glass wall and sloping floor with a linear drain prevents splashes in the doorless shower in the master bath, which occupies the space next to the custom-designed walk-in closet. The same Porcelanosa tiles on the floor also line the shower, which hosts a two-tiered Fantini showerhead and sheet flow fixture. Set in a niche opposite the Victoria & Albert freestanding tub is a glass sculpture by Hungarian artist, Mari Meszaros. Hand-painted wallpaper does double duty in this spectacular powder bath. Samples were sent to Germany for tests on how best to cover the wallpaper for use on the vanity, while maintaining a sanitary environment. After much experimentation, a special polyurethane was used to create a high-gloss effect on the wallpaper which was applied to a block of Corian and set on stainless steel legs. A Fantini faucet and custom hidden slot drain service the Corian sink.

Translating Kihnke’s vision for the building was architect Gary Hoyt. “The owners and their designers created a very unique space, and one that made use of the elements of fire and water we referenced in the design of the whole building,” says Hoyt, who has spent a quarter of a century in mixeduse planning, experience that came in handy with this project. “From the penthouse’s balconies to the active pedestrian level, Sansara has been very well received. It makes a strong statement and is a good neighbor for the community.” n

Left: Adam’s design cut through the structural wall of the two adjoining lanais, creating an open feel, accentuated by the skylight fitted for a retractable panel. A Seura outdoor television is built into the wall adjoining the two sections, and a Restoration Hardware basalt stone gas fireplace is plumbed in. At the far end, back-lit stacked stone adds texture to one of the walls on the home’s expansive lanai. A water feature pours into a trough made of polished lava stone and adds gentle audio ambience. Painted metal and glass panels allow a delightful view of the Bay.

Located in the cozy bayside enclave of Blackburn Estates, this family home is a stunning example of the best of contemporary trends seamlessly blended within a neighborhood that’s become known for Mediterranean-style houses. The exterior of the home features some of the traditional Mediterranean elements, but stands out with a sand-finished stucco tile roof, concrete finishes, casement style windows rather than bronze, and dramatic ipe wood cladding. “The homeowners were hoping to have a modern, clean lined design that was low maintenance for their growing family,” according to Sybill Johnson, interior designer for Legacy Finishing Touches, the in-house interior design arm of Legacy Builders that designed the residence. “The owners are very stylish and very much into the trends of today, so that was a consideration throughout the process.” Entering the home through the custom solid walnut pivoting door, one’s eye goes directly through the great room’s large windows and pocketed sliders to the stepping stones of a disappearing edge pool, and beyond to the Intracoastal. The house appears to be floating on water, and the sleek, modern, and low-profile furnishings allow the waterfront view to remain the focal point of the home. “We provide a concierge level of service to our clients that is truly only seen at the multi-million-dollar level,” explains Wendy Greig, President of Legacy Builders. “We provide that level of service to every client—start to finish.” For this home, that meant incorporating an indoor basketball court, and a bonus room designed for versatility that would grow with the family and include a theater zone, a gaming area with a wet bar, and sleeping space to accommodate the children’s sleepovers and large family visits. u

Left: The great room is divided into different seating areas and enjoys an expansive charcoal-stained slab floor. Each area has a layered design of three-wood veneered recessed ceilings backlighted by tape lighting, and multi-layered light fixtures like these Moooi Raimond pendants from Light Up Your Life. The fireplace has a white concrete hearth and features the same Boral Carbon Ledgestone from Old Castle Coastal used on the exterior of the home. Linear lighting highlights the texture of the feature wall. Original art is from Meg Krakowiak.

The contemporary interior includes a charcoal concrete floor by Taz Flooring for a cool, urban look. Wood elements were integrated in the design for warmth, and special attention was paid to the lighting throughout the home, including a variety of different LEDs to brighten the darker finishes and highlight structural elements such as the stacked stone fireplace. “We are a true custom builder, “states Mike Greig, Chief Operating Officer of Legacy Builders, “Many builders start with a plan and modify it from client to client. Sybill and I start off working with the client from the beginning of the design process and we see it through to the end.” In this case, the result is a one-of-a-kind house that is fun, functional, and chic. n

Below: Two Larmes bubble light fixtures from Light Up Your Life were combined for a scale suitable to the extra-large dining room table. Old and new merge with the owner’s own antique Indian gate mounted over a clean-lined modern Restoration Hardware console. Motorized Somfy solar shades were installed at all large openings to buffer sunlight. Left: Woods, whites, and grays play off each other in this ultra-modern, high end kitchen which boasts custom designed veneered Italian cabinetry with motorized upper cabinets from Cucine Ricci. A horseshoe-shaped island has large family entertaining in mind. The backsplash is full height, set against waterfall mitered Calacatta quartz countertops from 301 Granite and Marble. The darker gray custom concrete waterfall countertop with integrated fiber optic lighting is both practical and ahead of trends. Durable professional grade stainless steel appliances and six-burner cooktop from Feguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery add function.

Natural limestone floors and custom Italian floating cabinetry by Cucine Ricci topped with Luxxor Pur White Quartz from 301 Granite and Marble create the perfect backdrop. The dual-entry shower features Kohler rain heads, body sprays, and fixed and handheld showers over an elongated linear drain from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. Left: A custom velvet headboard brings the drama to the master bedroom with bedding in the same lush textured eggplants. The ceiling features channeled out squares back lit with LED tape lighting. Warm satin gold accents are sprinkled throughout, from the Robert Abbey Sputnik hanging pendants from Light Up Your Life to the accessories in the shagreen textured TV console. A step up from the bedroom’s wood floor from Taz Flooring is a sitting area beneath a large steel circular Hubbardton Forge Aura hanging pendant, creating a private owners’ retreat that overlooks the pool and the Intracoastal.

A pie-shaped lot on a cul-de-sac required an elegant solution. The carriage house sits at an angle to the main house and affords guest parking. The facade includes classic features of a low country frame vernacular: a raised basement, covered porches that wrap around the house, and operative cedar shutters. Pervious pavers line the driveway. A poplar-stained divided French door offers sidelights and a three-member transom with sidelights fixed above.

This one-of-a-kind home designed for Patricia and Mark Short and realized by Greg Ross of Ross Built Construction makes the most of an unusual pie-shaped lot that sits on a cul-de-sac and opens to 200 feet of magnificent bay frontage. The house is oriented around optimal views of sunrises and sunsets. The main house features the owner’s suite at the top, an open ground floor layout that allows for a flood of light and cross breezes through the house, and abundant covered outdoor space throughout. A two-bedroom carriage house with an open loft sits 55 degrees off the main house and is attached by a covered breezeway that serves as an additional outdoor living area. u

Left: Pocketed sliding doors lead from the great room to the screened porch overlooking the pool and the bay. Matching blue velvet Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams sofas sit atop a silver and gray rug from Rugs as Art and in front of large reclaimed wood cabinets. The floors are Arimar engineered European white oak. Below: The gathering room of the guest house can be best seen from the second floor. It features a wet bar, fridge, and sink along a shiplap wall and gorgeous bay views with light flooding through the palladium window. The floors are a wood-look porcelain tile. The sconces are by Rejuvenation; the hanging lantern is Visual Comfort.

Driving around Anna Maria Island, the Shorts discovered architectural designer Emily Ann Smith and noted that many of their favorite homes are Smith’s designs. Each has a deep respect for tradition, as well as a unique and ageless façade that manages to blend within the environment and stand out at the same time. u

Below: The main entrance leads directly to the dining room; then the walls fan out 45 degrees with the great room overlooking the bay and the kitchen to the left leading to the family room. White linen slipcovered chairs surround a Jerry Pair composite woodtopped table with iron legs. The iron theme is repeated in a side table and Visual Comfort lighting. Left: The kitchen, situated between the family room and the great room in this open floor plan, overlooks the covered walkway between the main house and the carriage house. Two striped navy and white leather benches from Hollingsworth sit in front of a Quartz countertop island. The backsplash is composed of an imported handmade tile similar to subway tiles. A Sub-Zero fridge matches the hood and cabinetry. There are two pantries behind the wall, including a butler’s pantry with a barn door.

In front of the tub is a white leather topped bench with brushed nickel legs. The large round mirror atop the cabinets is from Restoration Hardware. Polished nickel sconces are by Waterworks. Outside the window, Ross Built’s custom walnut-stained, laser-cut, hanging-knee supports are a stunning, authentic detail. Left: The master bedroom boasts a stunning cathedral coffered beam ceiling, tongue-and-groove, painted white, and with exceptional bayside views. The four-poster mahogany bed grounds the room and is framed by matching Bernhardt bachelor’s chest dressers with capiz-shell drawer fronts and matching Mr. Brown London table lamps in gold and rippled silver. A marble-topped coffee table with gold legs beside an oversized lounge chair in blues and whites plays off the blue and white bedding. A queen-sized porch bed swing hangs just outside the bedroom.

Color plays a significant role in the traditional British West Indies style front façade. The roof is a shade of grey to reflect the sun for a lighter effect. “We wanted to emanate the ocean, so all the exterior tones are earthy and inspired by natural elements—from water to dirt, grass to sand,” describes architect Clifford Scholz of Clifford M. Scholz Architects. The driveway has a shelled concrete finish, while the crosshatched pattern is inlayed with grass for beauty and interest. Both provide balance with the expansive streetscape.

When boating, fishing, and kayaking are what move you, the yearning to live near the water is inevitable. Such was the case for a family who chose this elegant, coastal home steps away from St. Armand’s Circle. “The ease of access to the water was a huge draw for this client, who had the dock constructed for their boat with convenient input for kayaks and standup paddleboards,” says interior designer Holly Dennis, who was selected for the task of creating an environment ranging from transitional to slightly contemporary while embodying a relaxed coastal elegance. The architecture and design team worked very hard to help the clients envision their custom home by producing detailed architectural drawings, “mood boards”, and renderings. “After a 2-year-long process, the home is now a reality,” Dennis recounts. She helped guide them in the selection of finishes, such as rich European Oak hardwood flooring from International Wood Floors, a limestone fireplace surround, and unique tile throughout the home. “The details in the home are classic, yet clean and simplistic… not overly detailed or fussy” describes Dennis. In a neighborhood of extraordinary homes, this one stands out in particular for its masterful “blurring of the lines,” as historical Georgian style is reinterpreted for a formalized and island-appropriate British West Indies feel. “Out of all the homes we have built, this one has gotten the most consistent praise for its appeal,” says builder Ricky Perrone of Perrone Construction. u

Left: The living room progresses from traditional to transitional in a way that is unnoticeable. “I like to layer textures,” says Dennis, who used a teak cocktail table from Noir Furniture, flanked by a quartet of Taylor King Old World club chairs upholstered in Pindler and Pindler Stafford patterned turquoise fabric. The throw pillows, custom made from textiles by Pindler and Lee Jofa, add a splash of color and visual interest as they contrast the neutral gray sofa.

“People would stop on an almost daily basis once the structure was up and comment on it. It was pretty incredible,” he recalls. However, prominence is only successful when it fits the context, and this home matches its environment to perfection. “One of the most essential things for any home we build is for it to interact with, and relate to, the surrounding property,” explains Perrone. “This home achieves this beautifully and more importantly, seamlessly.” u

Below: Because the dining room flows from an open great room, the color palette needed to be congruous with the rest of the space,” states Dennis. A set of Charles Steward Naples side chairs are swathed in glacier blue and the simple legs are finished in walnut. They surround the Tritter Feefer Cici custom dining table. The artwork, a giclée print, was procured with the coastal color palette in mind. Left: “I wanted to keep the kitchen fresh and clean, with ample lighting but without fussy decoration,” says Dennis. She specified fresh white cabinetry with beautiful mullion glass doors by Elegance in Wood. The eye-catching Akdo backsplash tile is a fusion of Thassos, Icelandic blue, and seashell. Appliances were sourced from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. Plumbing fixtures supplied by The Plumbing Place. A set of Jessica Charles stools in cool grey complete the look.

To do so required some “out of the box” thinking. As architect Clifford Scholz of Clifford M. Scholz Architects explains, due to the wide street frontage but narrow waterfront, he had to get creative in terms of orienting the house to maximize water views. “We shifted the north side to align and center its view onto the waterway, which is a canal so big that it looks like a bay,” Scholz illustrates. The upshot of the efforts by this talented team of experts is a residence with a sense of barefoot elegance that can easily be dressed up or down. Whether entertaining a crowd, or simply enjoying quiet time, the clients’ water wishes undeniably came true. n

Below: A true respite, the master bath has many spa-like features, such as a large, freestanding Kohler Stargaze soaking tub. Additionally, the generously-sized shower includes a steam feature from Thermasol with multiple spray heads by Grohe. Custom cabinetry by Elegance in Wood is sandy in finish, ideally suited to a coastal environment and topped with quartz sourced and fabricated by Omicron Granite & Tile Sarasota. The floor and shower tile work was done by Oracle Surfaces. A charming Charles Stewart stool is lightweight and easily repositioned to the vanity area when needed. Left: The master bedroom wing was specifically designed for privacy and a direct water view. The French doors and windows view the pool, and the bayou leading to Sarasota Bay. The bedroom is touched by softness, with an upholstered Hickory White Ashleigh bed and a soothing Rivard chaise. Caracole’s espresso-finished nightstands are complemented by Baha Blue Glass lamps by Regina Andrew Designs.

BALANCING A COUPLE’S DESIGN DESIRES

HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1


B

Bob and Brenda Biallas often gazed out their front door, across their neighbors’ tennis court and guest house, to the sparkling waters of Sarasota Bay beyond. Bob has always enjoyed viewing the Sarasota skyline from across the water, so when the lot became available, the couple bought it and began designing their dream home. For Brenda, that meant something light and airy, in keeping with Florida design, but also traditional enough to suit Bob. The result is a West Indies-style design, with the contrast between light and dark that Brenda admires and the symmetry she adores. Residential building designer Michael Bade, of HausDesign Studio, worked with the couple to design their waterfront dream. One hallmark of Bade’s design process is to visit a homesite several times throughout the day, sunrise to sunset, to see how the sunlight plays across the property and with the chosen building materials. It’s not unusual to see broad paint swatches on walls or samples of roof tile or pavers stacked nearby, as Bade reviews all selections onsite. u

Left: Situated on Sarasota Bay, this impressive three-story West Indies-style home is distinguished by the personal tastes of its owners. Brenda Biallas called up her design background, selecting Sherwin Williams’ Flour White paint for the home’s interior as well as the exterior. “I wanted the exterior to be a reflection of what was to come. Too often, a home’s exterior and interior don’t complement each other,” she explains. The home’s symmetrical design is punctuated by dual driveways and lush landscaping.

Above: A custom-sized Made Goods Patricia chandelier hangs above an Ethan Allen Livingston dining table surrounded by eight nailhead-trimmed chairs from Lee Industries. A pair of white six-drawer dressers creates a long buffet. A dining room cabinet in the couple’s 1940s Michigan home inspired the X-design millwork adorning the windows..

Also key to Bade’s process is designing in 3D, often onsite. “That way, we can immediately see the results of proposed design changes and make decisions quickly,” he says. “Having all the project’s principals on hand is ideal,” Bade continues. “On this project, I appreciated being able to draw on the experience of builder Clyde Alstrom. We made some design changes that he suggested, right there onsite.” Alstrom concurs, adding, “Both Mr. and Mrs. Biallas have extensive backgrounds in construction and design, which helped tremendously in the outcome of the final product.” Brenda, an experienced decorator and former décor shop owner, selected the finishes and furnishings, often calling upon her Michigan colleagues to create draperies and accent pillows from her chosen fabrics. n

A CONTEMPORARY NEST IN BIRD KEY

HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1


B

Perched between Lido Key and mainland Sarasota, Bird Key is an exclusive community for homeowners who enjoy the luxury of living on a private island, without sacrificing the conveniences that a bustling downtown offers. Residential designer Michael Bade, of HausDesign Studio, enjoys designing homes in this enclave. “The HOA is very accommodating and open to unique designs,” he says. Most of the 501 homesites on the island are waterfront—situated on Sarasota Bay itself or on one of the deep-water canals that crisscross the key. Bade presented the owners of this arc-shaped waterfront lot a unique contemporary design that mimics the flow of the property lines and maximizes the property’s sunny exposure. “The house almost formed itself as I came up with ideas on how to capture the natural light,” Bade continues. Numerous floor-to-ceiling windows, transoms, and disappearing sliders accomplish Bades’ goals. In the living room, the walls stop shy of the ceiling, allowing sunlight to pour through the transom windows by day, with up-lighting to wash the ceiling by night. The home is filled with custom touches that tell a story, according to designer Punit Patel. “The owners sourced accessories locally,” explains Patel. “For example, sisal baskets made by residents of a village in Kenya generate monies that go back into the community. This way, the client is not just buying stuff out of a catalog, they are making a global impact with their décor choices.” u

Left: The bronze tones of the standing seam metal roof, the fixed plate glass windows, and the overhead trellis contrast nicely with the off-white exterior. Limestone tile warms the center tower. A double planter provides the opportunity to grow a natural privacy screen in the lower level. Wicked Smart Homes installed the home’s integrated automation.

Pulling into the shell aggregate curved driveway amidst majestic Royal Poinciana trees, visitors can spot the hallmarks of an Old Florida cracker-style house with its unique design. Orientated on the site for shade, the metal roofs, raised floors, and large covered porches are hallmarks of the style. The sustainable and stylish upgrades become more apparent the closer you get to the house. The decks are made of tabby concrete with oyster shells, and the house seems to float atop its bottom third of coquina stucco. Mark Sultana, award-winning architect and partner at DSDG Architects, known for his ultra-modern designs, was asked to create a transitional house with modern conveniences and a homey warmth. “The difference is subtle, but also obvious,” says Sultana, adding, “There are traditional architectural features, but it doesn’t have the gingerbread extras. It’s simpler, cleaner, and much less maintenance in terms of taking care of the house.” u

Below: The upstairs den serves as the media room, wet bar, laundry center, and office with a built-in desk and floating shelves.

Left: A mother of pearl chandelier from Corbett leads to the great room. The Napolean fireplace sits below a custom maple wall unit with uplit glass shelves. The engineered walnut floor hosts a variety of tones to work with the colors of the homeowners’ art collection, including this painting by Syd Solomon. Angela Fine Furnishings in Naples provided the chestnut-hued coffee table, sofa, and seating.

Every effort was made to reduce materials, waste, energy and water, and the house is certified National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Emerald, far exceeding Florida’s standards, and the highest possible rating for residential building. Builder Josh Wynne, renowned for building Florida’s first LEED Platinum certified home in 2008, was brought in during the planning stages. “Building sustainably isn’t just an upsell tactic,” explains Wynne. “It has real value. We designed intelligently to moderate energy and water use, and we recycled 91% of the construction waste off-site.”

Below: The inverted V-bottom dark wood dining room table and surrounding open fretwork-back maple dining room chairs from Angela Fine Furnishings coordinate with the homeowner’s contribution of a modern buffet console and a large pendant.

While the front of the house pays homage to traditional Floridian architecture, the interior and rear of the house take full advantage of what people have come to expect from Sultana’s contemporary vision and Wynne’s skills—flawless execution and meticulous detail in a contemporary layout, designed to satisfy the homeowner’s love of indoor and outdoor living. April White, Interior Designer at DSDG Architects Inc., filled out the team and worked with Sultana, Wynne, and the owners to create uncluttered, welcoming spaces with furnishings and finishes as sophisticated and appealing as the home. “Everything complements everything in this house,” says White, “from the pieces meaningful to the owners, to the hues of the woods, the lines of the chairs, and the combination of colors and textures throughout the house. It’s very thoughtfully designed.” n

The Victoria and Albert bathtub is volcanic limestone. Right: The master bedroom walls are painted Sherwin-Williams Livable Green. A barn door to the master bath was fabricated from all three of the wood species used throughout the home. A custom mahogany bed is flanked by mahogany nightstands. Behind the velvet taupe-gray upholstered wall is a walk-in European closet by Cucine Ricci.

In the Sarasota neighborhood of Avondale, elegant 1930s Colonial Revival-style homes stand proudly beside quaint bungalows and low-slung ranch models of the 1950s and ’60s. Leafy oak trees line some streets, while stately royal palms march down others. Colorful bougainvillea climb the time-worn stucco of decades-old Mediterranean-style abodes. Sprinkled throughout this historic and charming area south of the Hudson Bayou are the signs of renovation. Some new homes are faithful representations of recognizable architectural styles. Others, like this stunning symmetrical contemporary, are uniquely tailored to the homeowners’ tastes. u

Designed by Jon Coulhurst, the open floor plan invites exceptional indoor-outdoor living on this double lot. An abundance of glass, lofty 14-foot ceilings, clean lines, and a mixture of materials such as stone and stucco, wood soffits, and a standing seam metal roof combine to give this home the contemporary moniker. While Coulthurst does have favorite features of this design, he says, “We want to design what the client wants to live in, not what we think they should live in.” u

Below: A John-Richard Eucalyptus and Smokey credenza creates an entryway and provides storage for the dining area. A walnut and white acrylic layered-arch, metal-banded LED pendant lamp hangs overhead. A Hubberton Forge Cavaletti pendant illuminates the custom-made walnut-topped dining table.

A quartet of white leatherette and brushed stainless steel Darwen stools from Zuo slides under one side of the island. The quartz countertop has a matte finish. The backsplash from LaCasa is 12-by-12inch mesh sheets of small mosaic tiles in shades of navy blue and aqua.

Interior designer Alan Gravely of Beginning to End Interiors agrees, “When a home is finished, it should look like we haven’t been there. It should reflect the homeowners’ style, not mine.” Gravely adds that this project was especially enjoyable to work on because he was brought in on the ground floor, working with the homeowners before they even began the teardown of the previous structure to make way for their dream home. Finishes, fixtures, and furnishings all fulfill the homeowners’ desire to have a comfortable home that they could live in. A white background sets the tone for the soft, watery colors—very popular in the Sarasota area—that grace the main living areas and are reflected in the artwork commissioned from local artist Meg Krakowiak. n

Below: The frameless glass walk-in shower is tiled with 12-by-24-inch linen-textured wall tile in Natural, stacked horizontally. On the shower floor, color-coordinating meshbacked 12-by-12-inch tiles are laid in a basket weave pattern. 6-by-24-inch gray mosaic tile provides subtle contrast for the accent. Fixtures from Moen’s 90 Degrees series include a rain-head shower and a hand-held head on a slide bar. A center-hinged tower divides the two quartz-topped vanities from The Granite Place.

The front elevation of this model home is essentially West Indies style. An emphasis was placed upon the entry because, while the home is filled with detail, he wanted it to be easily read. Its two-bay garage with doors from D & D is side loading for more appeal. Residential designer Shawn Ambrose says proportion is key, especially when you’re trying to give a model curb appeal. The design called for smaller windows in greater number to provide privacy and natural light.

T

There is a certain temptation to take coastal living literally, but with smart, sophisticated selections, it doesn’t need to be cliché. Interior designer Meg Carson of Emcy Interior Design of Bradenton, who was enlisted to design the interior of this model home with a British West Indies flair, had no intention of going over the top. “We wanted a fresh interior, free of dolphins, seahorses, and other stereotypical ‘ocean’ themes,” says Carson. “Focus was paid to clean lines, with juxtaposition of rustic, earthy finishes,” she explains. For this build, ceiling heights were of major importance. “Each main space has its own ceiling detail design. We kept the ceilings light in color so the house feels open and bright,” Carson illustrates. Keeping the color palette monochromatic, yet true to aquatic influences, muted shades of traditional coastal greens and blues give it a more urbane feel. u

Below: Carson’s idea was to keep the study on the masculine side, yet still cozy. A use of deeplysaturated colors makes it a fun place to work in her opinion. A tall Uttermost Nadira canopy chair is positioned in the corner. With a powdery blue paint color in mind for the walls, Carson selected darker planked flooring for contrast. Decorative items on the walls acknowledge popular Floridian hobbies like deep sea fishing and cycling. Left: Carson wanted a statement piece to be the first item to catch the eye when entering the living room, which she achieves with a buffet in vivid blue. A pair of wing chairs by Four Hands in New Navy face inward for uninterrupted conversation. Neutral Birch Lane sofas are set upon a casual, hand-loomed denim rug. Carson fearlessly mixes metal finishes. “It used to be a faux pas, but now we embrace it,” she advocates.

Another integral member of the design team, residential designer Shawn Ambrose speaks to the beauty of working on a model home. One of the features added to this specific model that is sure to attract potential homeowners is its unique amount of privacy. “We opted against floor-to-ceiling glass and instead installed a concrete privacy wall on the exterior, thus bringing a different option to the market.� u

Above: The rustic appeal of the dining room table brings a solid presence, so the accompanying fullyupholstered chairs are kept neutral and flowy. The light fixture is linear to elongate the space. Crystal barware fills the custom built-in display unit within reach of the climatized wine column. Left: Wanting the kitchen space to feel open, clean, and inviting, Carson chose Albrecht white cabinetry and high-end stainless steel appliances from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. The Quartz Zodiac London Skye countertops and island from Distinct Finishes fit the personality of the home, contemporary yet soft. The smoky blue Maxwell barstools marry the greens revealed in nearby spaces. Carson adds hanging lights in a black finish to bring an intended contrast to the white.

HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1


The model demonstrates that a mix of style can create a beautiful result. While Carson concentrated on coastally-inspired interiors, the builder’s vision calls for a West Indies feel. This was obtained through a generous use of darker wood finishes, 17-foot vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, and even a lighting design that keeps a West Indies atmosphere close at hand while not being over-committed. “From rustic to romantic elegant, we selected lighting to complement and complete the look rather than define it,” contributes builder T.J. Nutter of Nutter Custom Construction. If there’s one thing the team agrees upon, it’s that the home is airy and bright. The end result is fresh and revitalizing. n

Above: The master bath again unites gold and silver tones. The tiled shower makes an impact with a big, beautiful wall of 18-by-36-inch Kauri Beige Tiger Core tile from Distinct Finishes as its focal point. “You can see the sky when you’re in the shower,” boasts Ambrose. In an effort to “switch up the normal, expected bath lighting,” Carson selected four pendant lights for symmetry and surprise. The vanity is topped with Quartz Zodiac Course Pepper from Distinct Finishes. Left: To create a coastal and casual retreat for the future owners, the master bedroom is a mix of materials from metals to organic woods. Silvery tones are utilized on the upholstered bed, and on the Steinworld Graybeau chests used as nightstands, which are simultaneously dressy and casual. Above the bed is a set of driftwood wall panels from Phillips Collection. The area rug is admittedly “a little loud,” to offset the neutral bedding.

Above: Builder T.J. Nutter calls attention to the large outdoor entertaining area, with summer kitchen and pool bath finished with wood trellises, all of which were intended to harmonize the indoors and outdoors. As so many rooms open out onto the exterior rear, it makes the entire floor plan seem larger. “The pergola between the spa and living room was introduced to add more readability to the inside/outside concept,” elaborates Ambrose. “We wanted it to feel as if you were inside and outside at the same time.” Right: The elongated swimming pool features a sunning shelf and low-profile, built-in spa. The pool is visible from the master suite, living, and dining areas. Custom builder T.J. Nutter explains that the custom white aggregate brick pavers are especially high end and appropriate for a spa-like environment. The pool is screened-in in keeping with the goal of privacy, meant to appeal to a future homeowner seeking a true sanctuary.

The unobstructed living room views are breathtaking. The original popcorn ceiling was entirely stripped to expose the original concrete formwork. The design-build team of Halflants + Pichette added a clear finish coat to give it a reflective sheen. Furnishings were selected for their sculptural form, comfort, and weightlessness, such as the B&B Italia couch by Antonio Citterio, and swivel chair by Jeffrey Bernett.

This remarkable space which occupies the 15th floor of Siesta Key’s Terrace Building is a fascinating study in contrast. The starkness of exposed concrete and steel is not lost on this project—rather, turned into an advantage, lending a utilitarian, ultra-cool effect. The incorporation of rich tones and finishes secures a homey feel. u

Below: A wood-veneered kitchen is appropriately sleek to suit the personality of the home. Both functional and beautiful, it provides culinary perfection for the homeowners who love to entertain. The modern appliances from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery are neatly placed in unison with the cabinetry, getting the job done without distracting from the overall streamlined look of the design. Light Up Your Life provided the Edge Glide fixture seen over the island and Edge Soft Strip lighting used under the cabinets and throughout the home. Left: The industrially-defined dining area is in perfect keeping with the message of the home. As concrete and steel abound, it’s like something you’d see in a city apartment, but the water views are a welcome reminder of its peaceful locale. The hanging pendant lights and contemporary floor lamp are from Light Up Your Life. Grace Howl of Grace Howl Contemporary Art worked with the owners to enhance visual spaces.

“The glossy concrete surface extends through the entire condominium, tying the large unit together and giving it a sense of space,” remarks architect Michael Halflants, with regard to the character provided, and insight lent, to the original construction process. The unifying of woods into the buildout is multipurpose—not only does it provide sleekness and warmth, but the panels also cleverly conceal the inner workings of the house, including ducts, speakers, vents and the air conditioning unit. After thorough research, the client was drawn to Halflants + Pichette Studio for Modern Architecture in Sarasota for their expertise in modern design. These artistic professionals acted as masters of disguise, using discreet cuts and perforations in the wood veneer so function is camouflaged and only beauty is perceived. It’s an intriguing vantage point from which unobstructed views of the Gulf, the Bay, and the city can be absorbed and enjoyed. u

Above: Though you wouldn’t know by looking at it, the master bath has all the magic of a Smart Home. The room borrows light from an adjoining space through a window with a switchable electric film. At the touch of a switch, the glass turns white to provide additional privacy. When off, a view of sunrise or of the beach can be enjoyed from that very spot. The Porcelanosa Harlem Acero tile used on the floor and shower walls is from Sticks and Stones Flooring. Left: The master bedroom is a pure example of how unlikely paired materials can work in complete harmony. An inset, LED lit headboard wall brings warmth and style, while the exposed concrete ceilings add character and integrity. The sliders reveal a stirring view of the city in the distance. A geometric area rug is the perfect touch to add softness while remaining contemporary at heart. Grace Howl of Grace Howl Contemporary Art worked with the owners to enhance visual spaces. The 30-by-48-inch piece on the far wall is appropriately entitled “Early Dawn” from Grace Howl Contemporary Art

Two units were combined into one seamless, cohesive whole making the residence expansive and comfortable. Sliding doors encompass the unit on three sides, so it doesn’t feel enclosed despite lower ceiling heights that personified the era in which the condo was originally built. “The original windows were replaced by a series of seven-panel bi-fold glass doors that open out from the structural corners of the unit,” explains Halflants. “When open, all of the exterior walls of the unit disappear to open up to the long view over the ocean and the island. The breeze can drift through the unit uninterrupted.” u

Left: The guest suite is in perfect harmony with the balance of the home. Low profile furnishings in rich woods seemingly float. Abstract works of art from Grace Howl Contemporary Art add interest and color. The polished concrete ceiling adds the charming character seen in other spaces in the residence.

The 17,000-square-foot home has 11,000 square feet under air and occupies two miles of prime riverfront real estate in Manatee County. Tremron pavers form the drive and entry plaza. Individually selected Tennessee Crab Orchard flagstones flank the stone walls from Old Castle Coastal, built over a 12-month period by an expert stonemason who also created the medallion highlighting the ranch’s signature brand. Thick hand-troweled stucco walls and red Mexican roof tiles add to the hacienda’s authenticity.

You would be forgiven if you expected to see John Wayne step out of the front door of this home, six-shooter blazing, and a herd of cattle stampeded by the sound. That is exactly the effect the owners were aiming for when they engaged Jon and Vicki Moore, architect and design project manager and partners, to create a modern-day hacienda (with an early 19th century feel) for their 3,000-acre working cattle ranch in Manatee County.

Overhead a windmill fan made of aircraft aluminum circulates the air. A unique 26-foot wide glass wall allows unsurpassed views of the river.

The Moores brought their theatrical talents—honed by years of working on Disney projects—to this project, which is part private home and part corporate retreat for entertaining international clients. “This is exactly the type of project we like to do, where we can use all of our creativity and many of the theatrical techniques we’ve learned through our careers of designing corporate headquarters and hotels,” says Jon, the architect of the team. “It was a hospitality project that can accommodate 200 guests for dinner, yet is also an intimate and welcoming space for the owners and their extended family.” u HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1

According to Jon, all of the Moores’ projects incorporate some form of theme that becomes the basis of the design intent. When the owners said they would like it to look like a Western movie set, based on haciendas they had seen in Mexico, we knew this was right up our alley,” adds Vicki, the design project manager. “The clients were remarkable and delightful, very downto-earth, and that made the project very enjoyable for us.” u

Below: A center island spanning 21 feet is topped with a piece of granite which the owner and designer chose because of patterns within it that resembled herds of cattle, Native American teepees, and other Western images. Knotty alder cabinets flank a galvanized steel and banded iron range hood. Appliances are from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery. The backsplash is stacked slate tiles, and pendants are of oxidized metal. Dualtoned wooden stools match those in the adjacent dining room.

Create a luxury single-family home that will blend into an historic Sarasota neighborhood, while making a modern-day statement—that was the builder’s goal for its new two-story 4,377-square-foot Camberdale model. Located in South Poinsettia Park, home to original 1920s bungalows, the architecture’s emphasis on linear forms and white façade nod to the famed Sarasota School style. It then takes a departure with aqua-painted Bimini shutters and brackets that lend an overall contemporary coastal aesthetic. “This style of architecture is absolutely perfect for Sarasota,” explains builder Mark Wilson. “It’s timeless and makes sense to reference the beach, which is just minutes away.” u

Below: With its shades of tangerine, raspberry and aquas, the second-floor loft offers a vibrant yet calm destination to kick back.

Bernhardt’s Allegra tempered-glass and polished stainless steel end tables add a touch of airiness and shimmer.

Pieces by Vanguard Furniture include the Middlebury sofa accented by Jakarta lime throw pillows and a trio of ottomans upholstered in subdued flecked Worthy Kiwi.

Vine-woven walls and raised water features bring privacy to the expansive pool deck and covered living space, which offers dining and sitting areas and a fully equipped outdoor kitchen. “From concept to completion, we were committed to creating a unique lifestyle for the Sarasota market,” says Wilson. “This home is welcoming and inviting; people see themselves living here, entertaining friends or family or just hanging out by the pool.” n Written by Lucille Austero Photography by Jake Bibler Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery 2451 17th Street Sarasota, FL 34234 941.951.0110 www.fergusonshowrooms.com Below: The outdoor space includes a kitchen, dining, and sitting area under the painted tongue-and-groove ceiling.

Below: The generously-sized family room allows for a full-sized Four Hands Gramercy sofa covered in an off-white chenille and accented with custom-made pillows. A pair of Universal Corbin accent chairs is covered in gray chenille. Central to the seating group is a Mandalay Furnishing’s Monaco coffee table in Smoke Grey atop an 8-by-10-foot Mariner area rug. An Alexandria pendant from Nuevo hangs above. A credenza anchors the media wall, while the stainless-steel cable system on the stairway formalizes the room. Right: A quartet of Four Hands swivel chairs surround the Universal Furniture International Dorchester circular wood and chrome coffee table from the Curated collection. The grouping is set on a tan Flokati area rug, a textured contrast to the sleek polished porcelain tile floor. A Cyan Design Bubbles Cash pendant chandelier hangs from a ceiling accented with floating, smooth-finished MDF panels. Backless chrome-based hydraulic lift bar stools are tucked under the Emerald Quartz quartzite-topped bar. The custom wine cabinet features an HD Metal Series racking system. Accent lighting and wood laminate turn a structural column into a design element.

“The open design with flexibility of space is very current,” continues Manrique. “At the same time, the design of the master suite with its entry alcove and the spacious covered lanai are timeless features. The lanai is a classic, especially since nearly all of our homesites at Artistry Sarasota have water views.” u

Below: The dining area is an extension of the kitchen. Not a formal dining room per se; nevertheless, the designers used sleek surfaces and simple lines to give the space a formal air. Two mirror-front cabinets placed side-by-side serve as a buffet. Six tufted-back armless Parsons chairs covered in gray linen around a glasstopped, steel-based Tiffany pedestal dining table from Nuevo. Arterior’s Dallas chandelier in polished nickel features clear glass spheres and 12 of its 18 arms are adjustable. Robert Allen Sheer Path draperies in Duralee Vapor fabric filter the light without spoiling the view. Right: Snow White Zodiaq quartz from DuPont tops the Kitchen Craft Newhaven maple cabinets in Weathered Slate. The upper cabinets feature backlit frosted glass inserts. The backsplash is 2-by-12-inch horizontal stacked tiles. A trio of Nuevo Irene pendant lamps dangles above the waterfall quartz kitchen island. Chromecolored steel-framed Nuevo Aaron counter stools are covered in white Naugahyde. The kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel GE appliances. Matchstick blinds soften the light from the kitchen window.

Naming the home’s design “Contemporary Mediterranean,” Manrique says the architectural style has been well-received by Sarasota. “Given the option of a fifth bedroom, this home appeals to both empty-nesters and families with tweens and teens,” explains Manrique. Lead designer Chris Popovich and design associate Mariane Bliss completed the home’s award-winning design. The Chagall earned a silver Aurora Award from the 2017 Southeast Building Conference, one of two regional trade shows recognized by and affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). n

Above: Keeping the master bedroom light and airy, the design team specified a smooth coat on the ceiling, and then used a 2-by-4-inch smooth finish poplar product—standing on edge—to create a harlequin pattern inside the coffer. Glossy white paint ties the ceiling into the crown molding with a crisp, clean look. Fluted glass triangular rods are embedded in a polished nickel sphere to create Arterior’s Hanley chandelier. The upholstered platform bed is covered in charcoal linen, with button tufting. Dimond Lighting Munich table lamps sit atop nightstands. Opposite: Extensive use of tile in a monochromatic scheme results in a spa-like ambiance in the master bath. Floor and shower wall tiles are 12-by-24-inch Basinos Bianco Carrara in a high gloss finish. Tile was even used on the vanity wall—2-by-12-inch tiles laid in a herringbone pattern. A trio of three-light wall sconces connects the two oversized bevelframed mirrors. Sleek Montgomery Cambria from the Waterstone Collection tops a span of acrylic cabinets.

Right: Floored with pavers, the lanai is large enough to host a full complement of outdoor furniture. Garden stools serve as end tables to twin sofas. The Phillips Collection Freeform Bench is actually a resin composite. A combination of bronze antique 24-inch squares and mini green gold leaf squares decorates the wall. On a patio in the yard, four Standish club chairs are grouped around an aquamarine ceramic table.

The exterior of the home shows off the owners’ personalities. “The home is coastal with a twist,” explains Stevens. “Most coastal homes have a white exterior, but the owners love color and we did a fantastic peach paint on the outside of the home that works so well with the greenery and landscaping.” Caithness used HardiPlank siding giving the home the look of wood siding in a material that’s strong enough to weather Florida’s heat and humidity. Pavers lead to a wide front porch, adding to the coastal feel.

LASTING beauty

A FAMILY HOME IN HIDDEN HARBOR HOME & DESIGN 2018 V1

197


W

When you build a home for your family you want it to last. From the structure itself to the interior design, a well-built and well-planned house ensures years of memories and peace of mind. With the idea of longevity at the forefront of her design, Debbie Stevens set out to create a home in Hidden Harbor that would be the perfect family home for years to come. “I was referred to the client at the very beginning of the project, so I was there throughout the entire build. After they selected the lot, I helped them decide upon a builder, and worked with them to make sure their design plans worked for their lifestyle,” explains Stevens. With a knowledge of architectural design, she was able to make suggestions and create a space that reflects the family’s need both inside and out. “We put in so much work and so many wonderful details throughout the house, resulting in a really fun, coastal home that fits their lifestyle, the lot, and the location really beautifully,” notes Stevens. In fact, the details are her favorite part of the home. “It was fun to be able to put so much woodwork into the interior design. All of the rooms work so well together and the details tie them all together so well.” u

Right: Inside the home, the coastal theme continues. Dark wood furniture with a West Indies feel and wood details creates a comfortable interior. “We were able to use pops of color inside the home to create a personalized interior,” says Stevens. The buttery yellow in the curtains matches the tones found in the kitchen and dining room, all visible from the living room. Coffered ceilings align with the large windows creating symmetry. White painted poplar on the walls creates the look of shiplap, complementing the home’s coastal aesthetic. The mahogany front door adds a beautiful visual detail to both the exterior of the home and the living room.

While the finished product holds lasting beauty, the project posed some challenges for builder Mark Caithness of Caithness Construction. The pavers on the road and the canopy of trees made getting heavy machines and materials in and out of the job site very tricky. His team had to find inventive ways to get their trucks and equipment to the lot. Caithness says his construction process goes above and beyond what’s normally required and expected of a builder, “We’ve been building homes for 21 years, so we know how to pick materials that will last. From top to bottom—the strength of the roof trusses, double-steel garage doors, insulated windows, extra poured concrete in the walls—we built a solid home and it shows.” n

Above: The dining room and living room flow together for an open entertaining area. The custom cushions and caning detail on the Bernhardt table and chairs continue the West Indies feel of the living room furnishings. Matching draperies tie together the living room and dining room. Vintage maple wood floors with a hand-hewn texture add a casual elegance throughout the main living areas of the home. Right: The kitchen is open and airy with plenty of storage and prep surfaces. The island is topped with butcher block for an efficient workspace; double sinks, granite counters, and a large cooking range allow the family to come together to cook and converse. “We wanted the cabinetry in here to feel like furniture. The legs on the cabinets, the corbels, the hidden pantry— we really thought through both the layout and the aesthetic design of the kitchen to make it a unique space,” explains Stevens. Tongue-and-groove ceiling details finish the space.

Below: The master bath is a large space with soft earth tones and warm stone finishes. Stevens inserted 1-by-1-inch polished mosaic Botticino and Thassos stone into the honed Botticino tile used on the walls and floor of the master bath. Each insert is trimmed in Botticino pencil tiles to create the look of framed art in the shower. A chandelier with crystal detail adds a feminine touch to the space. Right: The large master bedroom is completely clad in white painted tongueand-groove maple for a crisp coastal finish. “There are so many amazing wood details throughout, but this room shows the craftsmanship that went into this home,” says Stevens. Custom fabrics in navy and white create a soothing and tailored space, while a carpet that “feels like butter” is inset into the black walnut wood floor border that matches the dark wood furniture. Caithness created octagonal ceiling coves lined in the same painted maple wood.

Right: The pool area overlooking the water is a private oasis for the family. “The lot isn’t a very large one, but we were able to design plenty of seating space and a great pool with a rock waterfall feature,” says Caithness. The natural form of the pool with PebbleTec finish fits perfectly in the backyard space and landscaping. Two screened lanais provide more entertaining space with comfortable custom seating arrangements.

CAITHNESS CONSTRUCTION

This new coastal home built by Caithness

Construction is located on the Island of Venice, just steps from the beautiful and private Golden Beach. At approximately 2,400 square feet, the open concept split floor plan was designed to maximize the living space. In the heart of the home is the light-infused great room and coastal white kitchen accented with Turkish gray marble backsplash and smooth quartz countertops. A custom barn door was built locally and installed in lieu of a pocket door, providing privacy to the 2 bedrooms and guest bathroom located just beyond the door.

These projects by Contemporary Cabinetry & Closet Concepts demonstrate the efficient use of stains combined with varying paint colors to create a statement in any room. The wet bar features applied cabinetry panels stained with a glaze coupled with a dramatic Italian glass counter back-lit with LED strip lighting for a contemporary appeal. In the home’s kitchen, the blue glazed tile backsplash adds a whimsical element and pop of color in the pure white kitchen. The perimeter cabinet doors are a shaker-style, while the soap stone topped island adds bead board to the design. The room is finished with crown moulding detail at the ceiling and tops of the cabinets. The small powder room space makes a big statement with stained and glazed vanity cabinetry topped with an LED lighted glass counter top.

ELEGANCE IN WOOD

The contemporary kitchen above was custom-designed and fabricated by Elegance in Wood. Grain matched teak veneers sourced from a single tree, high polished custom concrete counter tops, and widespread use of stainless steel give a nautical feel to this sleek, cleanlined design. The free form kitchen cabinet curves— executed in the company’s manufacturing facility and finished by the in-house finishing department— required 14 different radius molds to be made to custom form the doors and cabinets. The goal in mind for the study was to uniquely display accessories and books. The light versus dark built-in designed and created by Elegance in Wood is a functional office piece with concealed storage for a printer and additional electronics.

GREEN LIFE LUXURY HOMES

A timeless transitional, this residence built by Green Life Luxury Homes has a sense of class and comfort with a color palette that is both subtle and simple. The living area features soaring 16-foot coffered ceilings, bringing the outdoors in. Semi-rustic Tessoro Italian porcelain wood-look floors blend with comfortable furnishings. Across the great room, a barrel ceiling detail defines the kitchen space. The cabinetry combines soft grays and driftwood brown tones with glass display doors and LED lighting. Dual seating areas provide a perfect gathering space in this chef’s kitchen. The designer hood is fabricated in a flamed limestone gray Scagliola stone trimmed in cold cast brass. Leathered finished Gray Fantasy granite completes the look and complements the tables. The luxurious master bath features a Lyndon tub, radius glass enclosure, and Newport Brass plumbing fixtures with rope detail. A 63-inch Currey & Co. Saxony chandelier completes the elegant retreat.
