Your trusted resource... The medium of print itself can be a powerful branding tool for advertisers, but for the readers of Home & Design, it’s all about resources. Who are you going to hire when you build, renovate, or buy your next home? Who can you trust to have the expertise you need to handle the responsibility? And whose work can you research as the highest quality, most design-savvy, and trend setting? We endeavor to bring you the finest companies, products, and services in each edition of Home & Design magazine. In this issue, we have assembled 10 of the most interesting homes in the Suncoast region. And I’d like to sincerely thank all our clients who have championed Home & Design. Without your editorial submissions, we would not have the content you see on the pages of this stunning Design Issue. These submissions are plentiful and on the cutting edge of great design, and the compliments from our readers indicate we are on the right track. Also, thanks to the hundreds of you who turn out for our bi-annual networking launch events. It is a real treat to see this luxury group assembled twice per year as we unveil each issue, and I am so happy to facilitate this opportunity. Warmly,

Linda Donnelly Publisher Linda@HomeAndDesign.net

CLASSIC

ELEGANT AND SUSTAINABLE DESIGN IN SARASOTA

The developers wanted to create a new kind of house, one that was a 21st century home for Sarasota. Energy efficient and sustainable, this home reflects the highest level of quality design and architectural appeal.

Nestled in a historic and walkable neighborhood, this modern home embodies the desires and needs of the current home buyer in Sarasota. A hub for art and innovation on Florida’s West Coast, Sarasota’s residents desire homes and lifestyles that reflect current trends and modern living. This sleek 2,350 square foot, 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath house fits the bill. The home was created out of the idea that good design does not have to be sacrificed or enormously expensive to create a home that is good for its residents, community, and the environment. Built on spec, the project was an answer to the need for more contemporary, move-in ready homes in the Sarasota market. A collaboration from the very beginning, it took four years of planning, idea generation, and concept testing to complete the build. Developer Howard Davis, owner of Latitude 27 Properties, Chris Leader of Leader Design Studio, Josh Wynne from Josh Wynne Construction, and Punit Patel of Sawa Design Studio came together to design and finish the home. “We had a list of things we wanted to accomplish in this house, but mainly we wanted to build a home that was thoughtfully designed and shows that quality products can be used hand in hand with environmentally sound building practices,” says Leader, Project Designer for the home. From the very front of the home, it’s easy to see the design team’s execution of that vision. Smooth stucco covers the exterior, complemented by grey lap siding and corrugated metal panels to create a modern and urban feel. Cypress soffits warm up the sleek lines of the home. “We wanted to use familiar materials to create a home that is responsive to its neighborhood. We chose timeless materials like the mahogany front door, the warm cypress, and the Hardie siding. We have elements that everyone can relate to,” explains Patel. Only Florida friendly plants were used in the landscaping and the hand-selected palms create a front yard that feels like a modern oasis. The plants also help the home blend into the historic neighborhood. The beautiful fence is constructed out of the leftover cypress soffit pieces, allowing builder Josh Wynne and his team to minimize waste on the job site.

Amber Plyboo flooring is used on the second floor.

Grey Caesarstone quartz countertops compliment the white waterfall bar top. Overhead, slim and elegant lighting pendants by Axo Light follow the vertical lines in the kitchen. In the master bathroom, the wood tones from the kitchen and outside of the home are used on the vanity. Hardware is replaced with finger pulls to preserve the vanity’s clean lines. The vanity and mirror were custom made to match the length of the transom window which allows natural light to flood the room while keeping it private. Sconces are mounted directly to the mirror. In the shower, Vogue Bay wall tiles in a warm grey act as an accent wall drawing the eye into the space. White tiles are used on the sides of the shower to widen it visually. The corrugated metal panels and warm cypress soffits found at the front of the home are repeated in the courtyard. Stairs lead to a separate flex room entrance that features a wet bar and kitchenette. “The space was designed to be an extension of the interior living areas. The four separate slabs of concrete play off the four panes of glass that create the sliding door,” says Leader. A concrete fire pit and crushed shell stone finish this private outdoor oasis.

set a restful tone to this space. Hickory White dining chairs

The owner of this beautiful Harbor Acres home knows a lot about how order creates serenity. An organic chemist, he also devotes countless hours to creating and cultivating Bonsai trees, the careful care of which is in itself a form of meditation. A talented landscape artist, he and Stephen Hazeltine of Hazeltine Nurseries designed the Japanese-influenced gardens around the home and added a Zen rock garden, where raking stones invites contemplation. This love of tranquility emanates from this lovely 5,064 square foot, 4-bedroom/ 4.5 bath home, showcasing interior design by Gail Carlson Brundage of Studio G Home. The fresh white exterior, accented by classic black shutters and geometric iron balconies, sets the tone for the home; tasteful yet never over-done. “The owners wanted a welcoming and approachable home,” says Carlson. “Uncluttered and comfortable but with an overarching elegance, was the tone they wanted for their home.” 36

The Hickory Chair dark walnut table features a triple pedestal base and seating for eight, partially provided by unexpectedly placing a velvet patterned banquette at the head of the table. The iron and glass chandeliers, with frosted glass diffusers, light the scene and a hand-woven Pakistani rug provides understated beauty underfoot. The room’s focal point, above the sideboard, is a hand-carved wall sculpture depicting a dove, signifying blessings and introducing a spiritual note to the home’s interior. Carlson designed the built in bookshelves in the living room, in collaboration with Euro Tech Cabinetry and having the unit wired so that sconces could add a soft focused light. The designer added a bit more warmth to the space by accenting the coffered ceiling in Sherwin William’s Basket

A custom iron chandelier with flame tip bulbs and wax candle sleeves shines above a walnut ottoman covered in mocha linen, a mushroom-colored chaise and lowcut velvet couch. A pair of high-backed armchairs by Hickory Chair, made by hand in the USA, completes the furniture group. The alabaster table lamp is by Arteriors. Window treatments in a geometric pattern fabric frame the view to the garden. The kitchen is perfect for the owners, who enjoy gourmet cooking and entertaining. David Asher, president of EuroTech Cabinetry, interviews homeowners extensively about their lifestyle and kitchen usage. The answers guide Asher to design the perfect kitchen for them. Here, Asher accommodated the owner’s wishes for a crisp and clean look by using “American Estate” cream colored cabinetry with an antique glaze. He made certain this was a “very smart working kitchen, where two people can work easily, with a sink for cleanup and another in the island, where the cleverly placed microwave is also found. Such great design, along with impeccable service, is the reason EuroTech has been chosen for more than 2,100 home projects. We never disappoint.” Italian white crackle tile accented with bronze decos from Crossville form the backsplash behind the Wolf gas and a custom wooden hood that tastefully hides the vent. The paneled refrigerator is “pure refrigerator” with a dedicated SubZero freezer installed under the pantry cabinet. The fixtures are Rohl “Perrin & Rowe” in an English Bronze finish and were supplied by The Plumbing Place. “The owners wanted nothing but the finest fixtures in their kitchen,” says John Smithman of The Plumbing Place. “The kitchen had to be highly functional, yet simple and classic. We were happy to be able to accommodate their every wish.” The couple also chose a Bella Cera engineered Hickory wood plank floor in a dark Maiori stain, from La Casa Tile LLC for the kitchen and throughout much of the home to maintain visual flow. “The owners wanted to use unique materials in their home, which pleased us and we were delighted that our work pleased them,” says Fernando Gobic, owner of La Casa Tile.

contemporary upholstery with medium-toned fabrics and leathers. A natural sisal area rug anchors the main seating area, and floral draperies throughout echo the room’s sand, rust, green and yellow hues. Wood beams accent the ceiling. “The Girona design captures the imagination from the moment of entry,” says Mark Wilson, President and CEO of London Bay Homes. “The home transports you to another place reminiscent of a French countryside with its vibrant colors, charming details, warm textures and natural ambience.” “I’ve incorporated hand-planed wood beams and rustic travertine floors like those found in traditional farmhouses,” describes designer Scott. “I’ve also infused the home with a Florida feel with tropical furnishings, warm lighting, and fixtures and furniture pieces covered in woven fabrics with great texture.” Additional interior finishes include wrought iron repeated in the ornate design of the entry door, the chandelier in the breakfast nook and light fixtures in the den. The den also features a bold rug with a striped animal print, a burnt orange sectional for late-night TV viewing, and a walnut writing/computer desk. The kitchen offers a Sub-Zero beverage center and refrigerator, a 48-inch stainless steel Wolf range, and a walk-in pantry. The room has Carrara granite countertops with a unique leather finish, dark-toned wood cabinetry, and a handmade tile backsplash above the range. A highlight is the expansive island featuring a farmhouse sink set in a cream-hued, customized marble counter. The master bedroom is a luxuriously appointed hideaway with floor-to-ceiling French doors and hisand-her custom walk-in closets. The space provides

Exterior cabinets are designed to match all interior detailing but constructed of starboard and stainless steel hardware to withstand exposure to the elements. The home’s spectacular water views were a major consideration in the design and resulted in large walls of Low-E insulated impact glass and tempered glass railings on all interior and exterior spaces.

Striking pendant lights from Franco Albini illuminate the aquamarine glass dining table which is convertible, allowing the glass to extend from either side to increase the seating capacity for larger family gatherings. One design challenge turned into a design “opportunity” since all houses within the community must have a pitched roof. “Creative inspiration came from our client who is enamored with flight, and a Blue Heron named Eddie who routinely visited the site for many years,” says Kelly. The final form is an impressive wing-like structure that appears to take flight above the building atop a continuous glass clerestory. The ceiling of this form is clad with carbonized ash that continues from interior to exterior and is up-lit with a unique tensioned LED system from Edge Lighting. Outside, the pool, spa, and outdoor kitchen are a natural extension of the indoor living space. Landscaping utilizes mostly native,

Bringing client’s dreams to life is a main motivation for Peterson. “Designing is not something that’s done in a vacuum – it’s about the client, it’s about the site,” he says. “It’s a real honor to be involved in something that is a true reflection of how the client lives.”

The John Cannon Homes Kiandra home touts Tuscan exterior details and an open, airy interior with bonus space for modern fun and function. Located in Country Club East at Lakewood Ranch, a private gated community, this model features the best of lakeside living. At more than 3,600 square feet, the home offers plenty of space for living and entertaining. A bonus room, exercise room, a spa and pool with an expansive deck and lanai areas grant home buyers all of the function they need as well as providing lush natural views. When Country Club East added the Seacroft neighborhood to its existing villages, built around lakes and nature preserves, John Cannon Homes selected the homesite for The Kiandra, “based on the design of the home and its view of the lake,” according to Cannon. In fact, adds Cannon, “We designed the home on site to best capture the afforded views” was a favorite aspect of The Kiandra project for Cannon and his design team. The Kiandra’s architectural details begin with the exterior stone and brick accents. A variety of stone and natural surfaces complement one another. For example, the Flagstone St. Augustine Castillo 6” x 9” Indian Summer pavers in the motor court and entry lend earth tones, while the Studio Blue Green paint on the shutters provide a pop of color. Ledge stone and brick accents surround the arches adjacent to the double walnut-stained front doors. The home’s exterior stucco paint color — Sherwin Williams Casa Blanca — provides a neutral canvas for the cut stone details and charming painted shutters. The home has a three-car garage with Clopay doors in an ultra grain walnut finish and short panel square grilles. The welcoming ThermaTru front doors have rustic strap hinges and a deep walnut stain. The house is sited on a parcel more than 18K square feet in size. “Each of the home sites are 90 to 100 feet wide with lake or preserve views,” describes Cannon.

THE DESIGN ISSUE 2015

The Kiandra boasts rooms for any family’s needs. It features three bedrooms, a great room, dining room, kitchen with breakfast area, study, exercise room and bonus room. The rooms and design make the home feel spacious and open. The foyer’s ceiling is more than 14 feet, and leads to a great room around which the other rooms center. The foyer and great room flooring, both made of 7.5-inch wide Mohawk Artistica Cobblestone Oak, an engineered hardwood, match the warm tones of the intricate stepped ceiling and the Sherwin Williams Natural Tan paint. From the great room, homeowners or guests can reach the back lanai, kitchen and dining areas, and a hall that leads to the study, exercise room and master suite. Arched doorways from the foyer echo the home’s exterior design. “Arched entries add to the architectural elements in the design of the home,” says Cannon. “These are the sorts of details we believe are important,” he adds. Those architectural details are subtly repeated throughout The Kiandra, yet each room of the home has unique touches. For example, the kitchen’s clean lines transition beautifully to the curves afforded by the Francois Regent pewter polished hood. The kitchen’s stepped ceiling is painted Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray flat finish and the 6” x 8” box beams in clear cypress and perimeter cove moulding covered with Sherwin Williams Pure White. Maple cabinetry in Snowflake color tone with Shaker narrow style doors and beaded inset edges provide ample upper cabinet storage. Amerock polished chrome hardware adds a contemporary and clean look. All of the kitchen’s dovetail drawers have soft closing guides, and upper cabinets have single-light glass doors that are finished with white interiors. The island cabinets feature French Roast-stained walnut Shaker doors. The island is equipped with an Elkay Clayton stainless steel sink with

The pool leads the eye to the endless views of the natural habitat beyond. But the luxury and appeal of the home persists. The front of the pool features a spa, and the entire pool deck is covered with a clear view screen. “The screen virtually disappears to reveal stunning lake views,” says Cannon. Overall, the Cannon team enjoyed working in the setting and on the design of the Tuscan-inspired modern home. “We were very excited to design and build a home that is clean and crisp for today’s modern style of living,” emphasizes Cannon.

AN HISTORIC HOME GETS A THOUGHTFUL REMODEL 108

Larry and Deanna Reams were searching for a place to put down roots in Siesta Key and fell in love with a vintage sunny cottage. Built in 1929, the house had undergone previous renovations and The Reams were eager to put their touches on it to make it their own. They called upon Holly Dennis of Holly Dennis Interiors to assist with the interior design of the 3,200 square foot cottage and make it a sublimely comfortable, unfussy haven. The goal was a place they could enjoy the simple pleasures of a good book, a kayak ride, Sarasota’s beautiful sunsets and each other’s company. And this team made that happen. Local landscaper, Robert Davie, designed the landscape, saving the large palms in the front yard and adding supplemental plantings fill out the garden beds. He is known for designs being very organic in feel with an old Florida look that perfectly suited this property. Each and every original window was saved, removed, cleaned, scraped and restored to its original condition. The same was done with all the hardware for the doors. All are original to the home and Dennis believes that choice set the tone for the whole project. “It might have been easier to buy new hardware, but the fact that the owners were willing to put in the time and money to preserve such an important part of the home’s personality speaks volumes about them,” says Dennis. “They have great respect for the history of the home and it shows.” The simplicity of the furnishings in the living room reflects the owners’ wishes to banish fussy and overdone design in favor of easy and comfortable furnishings in neutral color tones. “They directed me to get away from formal dress shoe-type design and go for flip-flops instead,” says Dennis.

It was a true pleasure,” concludes Dennis.

compliments the curved wall in the dining room as well as the curved hood above the cook top. Bringing the three step concept to life are the cabinets. The mixture of darker wall cabinets with white island cabinets adds another dimension of color to the space. The Lexington barstools surrounding the island reiterate the owners theme of mixing curves with straight lines. The tile used throughout the home is just one of the design elements that were carefully selected by both the owner and the designer. “Carrying the beach feeling throughout the home was important” explains Maria Gelinas of La Casa Tile. Holiday and the homeowners chose a mixture of sea glass mosaic tiles combined with granite to create a unique backsplash in the kitchen. Even the travertine tile floor used throughout the home was specifically chosen to resemble the sand. A metallic tile with a distinct wave pattern was used on the wet bar to add a different layer of texture. “There was a good collaboration between Jessica and the homeowners,” adds Gelinas. The living room’s open design once again gives way to the homeowners distinctive design features. The fireplace incorporates the three-step pattern while also integrating the use of the curve on the stone hearth. The furnishings in the room only reinforce this concept by using curved chairs with a linear coffee table. A bold rug with a stripe pattern adds an interesting complement to the graphic pattern used on the chairs and ottoman. The calming colors selected are instrumental in tying this space to the rest of the home. When designing the bedrooms, Holiday states the owners wanted guests to feel welcome, offering them their own sanctuary. Each room is designed as a master suite, equipped with an en suite bathroom to ensure guests have a space all their own. The bedrooms were all designed

to appear slightly different, but the extension of the casual coastal theme is still evident. To create a dramatic pop of color, the guest suite featured uses eggplant, a color that can be found in the trees surrounding the home. Walnut wood floors add a sense of warmth to the room and create a nice contrast to the woven rugs. The lanai is one of the most utilized areas in the home. This expansive area was designed to provide ample space for the homeowners to entertain their guests. As the design developed, the outdoor fireplace location served a greater purpose in creating the ideal entertainment space for the homeowners. It was also important to them that the fireplace be wood burning. The stone façade of the fireplace adds a rich texture to the space while the travertine mantel and hearth tie in features from the interior. The custom railing, which mirrors that of the entry steps was strategically designed not to obstruct the view by using widely set horizontal rails. “You definitely feel like you are on a vacation when you’re there,” Holiday concludes.

decided upon “French Vanilla Shadow.” This 24” square Italian marble tile gives the condo an updated look. These larger tiles create a neutral palette that emulates the modest, fresh look the homeowners were trying to achieve. “The approach was to be very minimalistic,” says Allen. The creation of an open floor plan played a major role in the overall design of this home. Working closely with their contractor, the homeowners removed walls and completely redesigned the kitchen to give the condo an open and inviting feel. Removing upper cabinets above the bar was the first step in making the kitchen larger for entertaining. Allen worked closely with the homeowners to select the perfect materials for the kitchen, introducing them to a wide range of products. “The kitchen backsplash features a new line of product,” explains Allen. This waved patterned tile with an iridescent finish reflects the light to create a textural look, making it the perfect complement to the dimensional metallic tile mosaic featured on the bar face. The rich, dark wood cabinets give warmth to the room and the lustrous “Taj Mahal” quartz countertop provide an interesting contrast to the space. An understated stainless steel arch pendant above the island accentuates the Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances, polishing off this decadent kitchen. Ceiling treatments and lighting contribute heavily to the design of this home. With the open floor plan, it was important to the homeowners that each space still be clearly defined. Through a mixture of cleverly designed ceiling treatments, the homeowners have created distinctive spaces without taking away from the openness of the home.

The dining room ceiling mirrors the chic, straight lines of the dining table while upholstered dining chairs add softness to the space. Adding a sense of whimsy to the room is a custom-made Dale Chihuly chandelier, a handcrafted piece consisting of 118 individual pieces of glass. This impressive statement piece took installers 3 days to hang as each piece of glass had to be layered by hand. The use of floor-to-ceiling windows and generously sized sliding glass doors bring in a plentiful amount of light. When designing the master bedroom the homeowners had very clear ideas of what they wanted to achieve with this space. The crystal hanging pendants on either side of the headboard were important in this design and required some creativity from the contractor. In order to incorporate this look, it was necessary for the ceiling to be dropped in the room to allow space for extra wiring. This luxurious space features a custom made floor-toceiling upholstered headboard flanked by two striking metallic night stands. The abstract floral rug adds color to the room and pull in the daring pattern of the zebra print armchairs. The master bathroom is one area where Allen’s creativity shines. The homeowner requested a freestanding tub on a stone platform and together with Allen they created a wonderfully

The expansive lanai area creates a lavish entertaining space, allowing the homeowners to create three different seating areas, all of which take advantage of the view of the bay. Clean-lined furniture with a neutral color palette complement the interior of the home and produce a consistent look. Breaking away from the large square tiles used throughout the interior, homeowners opted for a 12�x24� porcelain tile to create a linear feel. From the inspired tile designs to the spectacular custom chandeliers, this home brings to life a soft contemporary look that radiates sophistication.

The home then has a holding tank in the garage and uses all Culligan water filtration systems. “We are very picky about our water quality,” Hunihan said. “So we make sure the homeowner gets the best water quality possible.” The primarily goal is to build luxury that is at a fair market price. And this home hits all those notes — comfort, luxury, and affordability. “I’ve built many homes, and I am most proud of this one,” concludes Hunihan.
