Painting the town red

Season has been off to an incredible start this year. At the many events I’ve attended over the past month, every one has just seemed so happy, letting their inner butterfly shine. It is always great to get out and mingle with people in the community in a social setting and to hear about all of the excit ing things happening here in our beautiful home.

Speaking of home, that is a central theme of our November issue. On these pages, you’ll find content related to home in every sense—from design and decor trends to elevate your per sonal home space, to sustainable local building projects that honor our larger home called Earth, to a fashion shoot we pro duced right here at home on the streets of downtown Stuart.

I’ll say one thing about this month’s fashion feature: I need to get my hands on a pair of those red Louis Vuitton boots worn by our cover model, like, stat! They really bring the concept of painting the town red to a whole new level, and I want them in my closet. Our fashion team had a blast meandering around the Stuart city streets to shoot these looks—see them all in “Night Owl,” beginning on page 38.

On page 30, we take you on a tour through a magnificent home in Martin County. The home was completely renovated by Hobe Sound–based designer H. Allen Holmes, and it is a true contemporary gem. And in “Sustainable Design,” which starts on page 46, we talk to local architects, designers, and contractors about the importance of sustainable building and highlight a few standout homes and commercial spaces in the area that honor Mother Earth by utilizing green features. The planet is our most important home after all.

I hope you enjoy the November issue, and maybe I’ll see you out and about this season! In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me via the email below if there is anything you’d like to put on my radar or offer feedback about, or just to say hello.

Peace and blessings,

Giving thanks

November brings slightly cooler weather and one of my favorite holidays: Thanksgiving. This time of year, I am reminded of how grateful I am for the abundance of life. Of course, family and friends always come to mind first, but this past year has led me to ponder some basics we often take for granted—like our health.

My immediate family has experienced a few health-related scares over the past few months, including myself and my children. None were life-threatening, but it has been stressful and frightening nonetheless. We all came together as a family and supported one another through all of our emotions and frustrations. My husband, Keith, is our rock and, as always, he kept us calm and reminded us that there are others whose circumstances are much worse. For me, giving thanks this year is especially important. I am grateful for so many “simple” things—things like my eyesight, laughter, delicious food, my job, social activities, and so much more.

I also want to thank several of my dear friends (you know who you are!) and my marvelous sister, Elise, for helping me through these tough times. Without their love, support, and laughter, I would have crumbled. And I’d like to give a special shout-out to my colleagues at Stuart Magazine, who work so hard to put together each issue. You are appreciated, and I am thankful for all of you.

And to all of you, I thank you for your readership and for supporting Stuart Magazine. Feel free to reach out anytime and let us know about any events, charities, or news we can help spread the word about. There’s no better way on the Treasure Coast to promote your business, service, or event than by advertising with us! Please keep in mind we do so much more than print. We offer a plethora of advertis ing possibilities to fit every budget.

As the holiday season nears, take some time to reflect on what you’re thankful for and enjoy all the family time and gatherings. Happy Thanksgiving, and I’ll see you around town!

The hygge aesthetic encompasses design elements like neutral whites and beiges, textured fabrics, and greenery for an earthy touch.

ZEN Trends

WE GOT THE 411 ON THREE SOOTHING HOME DESIGN TRENDS FROM BAYLEE KNIPE OF BAYLEE DEYON INTERIORS IN STUART, WHO SUGGESTS WAYS TO WELCOME THEM INTO YOUR ABODE

Hygge (pronounced “hoo-ga”) traces its roots back to a Norse word meaning “protected from the outside world.” Encompassing the notions of warmth, coziness, and contentment, the design concept is known for its fondness for touchable textiles, natural materials, neutral tones, and mood-lifting lighting. Create this Scandinavian aesthetic at home with a palette of warm whites and creamy beiges, wooden accents, and decorative touches in earthy hues such as green, blue, and terracotta. Weave in sumptuous textures like faux-fur blankets, velvet pillows, and hand-tufted rugs that feel luxurious underfoot and can be easily layered. You can also hygge your home with tabletop selections such as potted flowers and plants that tie into the ecosphere, candles that elevate the senses, and customizable light fixtures that suit your mood.

Described as “the architecture of life,” bio philia (or biophilic design) connects us to the natural world. There are many ways to incorpo rate Mother Nature’s verdurous side into your home, and adding greenery is a good start. The bedrock of biophilia, plants are natural air purifiers with merits ranging from diminishing stress to im proving sleep. If your thumb isn’t very green, you can’t go wrong with a potted fiddle leaf tree or a bundle of dried pampas grass. You can also draw the vibe of the great out doors indoors with decor and furnishings pigmented with colors indicative of land and sea. For flooring, countertops, and other essentials, choose natural stone, bamboo, re claimed wood, and other eco-friendly and sustainable materials. The design philosophy also encourages maximizing sunlight and vantages of the outdoors, so if privacy permits, keep windows naked or install minimalistic shades for maximum light.

The Stuart Air Show is ready to wow NEED FOR SPEED Spotlight

Keep your eyes trained above Witham Field November 11-13 for an awe-inspiring week end of sky performances and aerobatic feats by some of the country’s most talented aviators. The 2022 Stuart Air Show flies back into town to celebrate American aeronautics at its finest with performances by Friends of Army Aviation, U.S. Air Force Heritage Flight, U.S. Navy Tailhook Legacy Flight featuring Jim Tobul and his rare Corsair, the AeroShell Aerobatic Team, and more. Here, Inez van Ravenzwaaij, the Stuart Air Show’s new executive director and a founding member of Stuart-based Southeast Florida Honor Flight, highlights three can’t-miss experiences. stuartairshow.com

Rebel With a Cause. As a woman, I’m super excited to have a female fighter pilot on one of the jet demo teams. Captain Aimee “Rebel” Fiedler, a military pilot and commander of the U.S. Air Force F-16 Viper Demonstration Team, will be flying to inspire the next generation of young women to reach for the stars.

Words like “unfussy” and “simple” come to mind when thinking about minimalism The aim of this aesthetic is to clear away the superfluous to create a calm, clutter-free space. Pieces should be functional and maxi mal, such as an ottoman with hidden storage to conceal clutter. Shape is another minimalist trademark with emphasis on straight lines and flat planes. While this strippeddown style hinges on a monochromatic palette, you can play with textures, provocative artwork, and fun light fixtures.

Big Comeback. I’m always asked, “When are the F/A-18’s coming back?” Well, I’m happy to report the U.S Navy Strike Fighter Squadron 106, also known as Gladiators, are returning after a five-year hiatus and are bringing the F-18 Super Hornet Rhino with them for a jaw-dropping, power-packed performance.

Powerful Tribute. In July, the air show industry lost Chris Darnell, a Shockwave jet truck driver who performed here in 2021. This year, his teammate Mark Smith will race the world's fastest jet-powered semi down the runway in honor of Darnell’s memory. —Kerry Shorr

Emily’s Picks Aromatic Bliss

Ascent can elevate your mood and even bring back a beautiful memory. That’s why it’s so important to curate a beautiful aroma in your home. From candles to cleaners, I’ve come up with a list of delicious scents to infuse into your living space.

Scent New York creates amazing fragrances commonly found in hotel lobbies but for your home. I love their mini diffuser combined with the Westin White Tea fragrance. If you prefer a more “designer” vibe, try Gucci’s newest candles. I’m a big fan of the Freesia scent, and the candleholders are so beautiful, you won’t want to throw them out after burning. Lastly, no luxury scent column would be complete without Meghan Markle’s favorite candle—Soho Home’s Bassett Rose Water candle. True to the duchess’ style, it’s both minimalist and sophisticated.

Local interior designer Angela Reynolds recently introduced me to these Cuir Sacré luxury diffusers by Victoria Cator, and I’m hooked. They last up to six months and have an extraordinary scent.

One of my latest obsessions is Homecourt, a company that turns regular household products into hypnotic, olfactory experiences. The brainchild of actress Courteney Cox, Homecourt’s lineup consists of hand soaps, dish soaps, and more made with custom-crafted scents created by expert perfumers.

As much as we love our pets, they can quickly ruin all the delicious-smelling goodness you’ve tried to add to your home. No matter how many candles you burn, they won’t cover up an old pet stain. I found this pet odor eliminator by a newer brand called Zoop that works like nothing I’ve ever seen.

To tie it all together, I was looking for a stand or a beautiful riser to display everything, and I stumbled on these gathering boards by Patrick Darczuk. Each piece takes three weeks to make and is hand-shaped to perfectly cradle everything that sits inside of it.

I hope you enjoy making your home a luxury oasis this fall! xo, Emily

A Guiding Spirit

MATT HUDSON HONORS HIS LATE SON, HARRISON, THROUGH A NONPROFIT DEDICATED TO HELPING FAMILIES FACING THEIR OWN STRUGGLES

When Matt Hudson welcomed his second son into the world on November 1, 2010, he never imagined the enduring legacy the tiny child would inspire.

Harrison Everett Hudson was born with severe medical needs, primarily issues with muscle development. During the 16 weeks after Harrison’s birth, Hudson and his wife, Melissa, traveled back and forth between three hospitals

in two states, desperate to find help for their son. Team after team of medical professionals screened him for every possible genetic condition, yet no one could diagnose exactly what was wrong. Ultimately, Harrison’s medical issues were classified as a “genetic anomaly.”

The mysterious illness would eventually take Harrison’s life. On April 4, 2011, the Hudsons lost their baby boy. He was just 5 months old.

The experience left the couple

drained, both emotionally and financially, yet they discovered the power of community as countless people rallied to give them the support they needed during the most difficult time of their lives. Motivated by the generosity of spirit their son inspired, they vowed to provide that same support to other families and founded Hope from Harrison, a nonprofit dedicated to raising resources, awareness, and hope for children with critical medical needs.

“There are those moments when the dark and the light come together,” says Hudson of the work he and his wife do through Hope from Harrison. He tells the story of the first child the organization helped—a little boy named Ryland. “The doctors said Ryland would not live past the age of 1,” recalls Hudson. “Now I watch him on Facebook. He’s 12 and doing great.” Money raised from Hope from Harrison helped Ryland’s family update their home with changes like replacing the carpet with hardwood floors so Ryland could more easily get around with his ventilator.

Children like Ryland require roundthe-clock care, and the expense to their families is astronomical, even with medical insurance. “At the time of Harrison’s death, Melissa and I were solely responsible for his 24-hour medical care because we had exhausted the allotted in-home nursing care benefits offered

through our medical insurance,” says Hudson. “We had applied for Medicaid and were put in the typical 30- to 45-day waiting period for approval. It was not logistically possible to hold down jobs, and the intensive 24-hour medical care was physically and mentally exhausting.”

Since its inception, Hope from Harrison has given more than $300,000 to families in need. Funds are raised through online donations, private donors, and at West Palm Beach’s SunFest, where the Hudsons and volunteers run a beer concession during the music festival each year. This past year’s SunFest funds were allocated to help Jaxx, a 3-year-old boy from Lake Worth who has Möbius syndrome, a rare neurological disorder. Jaxx is being raised by a single mom, who also has a 10-yearold son and had to give up her job to provide full-time care for Jaxx. Hudson understands that sacrifice. When Harrison was born, he gave up his landscape contracting business in Texas to move to Palm Beach County in 2011 to be closer to Melissa’s family for support, and the family now resides in Abacoa. In 2017, Hudson was finally able to recapture his dream of owning a landscape architecture firm, M. Hudson Design. “I like being outside and shaping spaces and creating environments that inspire people,” says Hudson, who has been passionate about landscape design since his college years at the University of Georgia. The Jupiter-based firm creates outdoor environments including landscaping, irrigation, hardscapes, lighting, pools, and outdoor living spaces.

Hudson is reminded daily how lucky he is to work in a

field he loves, to be able to help families in crisis, and to have a healthy, happy family of his own. Harrison’s older brother, Maxwell, is now 14, and Harper, Harrison’s younger sister who never got the chance to meet him, is 8. Gratefulness is a lesson Hudson says he learned from Harrison. “When someone asks me about Harrison Everett Hudson and his story, this is what I know to be true: Harrison was a spirit among our own, here to radiate light, love, possibilities, and all things good,” says Hudson. “So when you think of Harrison, his story, and our family, please honor him by seeing these things in yourself, your neighbor, and this world.” hopefromharrison.org; mhudsondesign.com ❖

STUART RESIDENT MIKE CARINGI IS THE PROUD OWNER OF THE DEBUT MORADA 18—THE PERFECT SKIFF FOR HIS NEWFOUND LOVE OF MORE RELAXING ANGLING ADVENTURES

Mike Caringi is no stranger to boating or offshore

fishing. With an extensive background fishing in blue water from the offshore canyons in New Jersey to the Gulf Stream off his home waters on the Treasure Coast, the Stuart resident has owned a string of large boats up to 53 feet in length.

As years march by, time ensures that aches last a little longer and bruises heal more slowly—and Caringi found himself throttling back somewhat. The hard-charging offshore marathons

evolved into a more peaceful alternative, enjoying time on the water without the collateral damage sustained from a day spent on rough seas. The sun rising over rolling tarpon schools on the glassy waters of the St. Lucie River proved to be a relaxing yet thrilling way to begin a day before work, and it was right in his backyard for the taking. In his search for the perfect platform to embark on this new endeavor, Caringi found the answer to all of his questions in the Morada 18.

GEORGE LABONTE

As it happened, local builder Rich Devito, the owner of Islamorada Boatworks, had been working tirelessly for several years on perfecting the design of a boat that was exactly what Caringi needed. Devito is himself a tarpon addict, who has spent many years chasing these fish with his fly rod in hand. Never quite satisfied with previous tarpon skiffs that he had owned, he set out to improve on each detail he believed fell short. The process of elimination resulted in several prototype models that would eventually be tweaked and tuned until there was no room for doubt that he had his ultimate skiff locked down. Only then would the Morada 18 be ready for prime time.

Attention to detail such as a soft and dry riding hull that would be whisper quiet on the flats came first. A light yet strong hull was achieved using 100 percent Carbon Innegra resin-infused

construction. And custom touches like a teak toe rail to tame fly lines and a hidden Simrad EVO MFD that rises out of the console on an electric actuator add class to an already elegant design aesthetic. The first model was rigged with a Yamaha 115 SHO engine.

Hull number one, which will be Caringi’s personal tarpon hunter, is finished to exacting standards for his very specific needs. Consulting with Devito every step of the way (including receiving advice about chasing local tarpon from this veteran angler) has resulted in a boat that is perfectly designed for the area’s inshore inhabitants.

For Caringi, the simplicity of running upriver for a relaxing morning session signals a new chapter that allows him to divide his time between inshore and offshore—without taking a beating in the process. ❖

Caribbean QUEEN

When the $4.2 billion excess that is Baha Mar debuted on Nassau’s Cable Beach in 2017, it revolutionized the concept of a megaresort. Despite its ambitious size, the property shined for its top-notch service, quality brands, and world-class experiences. Five years later, Baha Mar continues to wow with new activities, eateries, and events, plus an array of posh accommodations.

Baha Mar boasts numerous room and suite structures across its three hotel brands: Grand Hyatt, SLS, and Rosewood. Chief

among these offerings are the 6,200-square-foot oceanside sixbedroom villas at Rosewood Baha Mar, which are the resort’s most lavish accommodations to date. When venturing outside, consider spending ample time at the new 15-acre Baha Bay, home to a sprawling luxury water park that speaks to Baha Mar’s larger-than-life allure. Sure, there are plenty of thrilling slides— don’t miss the high-speed Dueling Riptide Coaster—plus a 500,000-gallon wave pool, a lazy river, and a surf simulator. But throw in some gourmet food options, an outdoor casino, and a beach club (equipped with full-service private cabanas, ham mocks, and two infinity-edge swimming pools) and discover exactly how a water park garners elite status.

Augmenting an already impres sive collection of more than 45 restaurants and bars are two of the biggest names in the industry. Chef Marcus Samuelsson puts a South ern spin on Bahamian cuisine with Marcus at Baha Mar Fish + Chop House, featuring crave-worthy

dishes such as conch croquettes and spicy prawns complemented by juicy fried chicken and marsh mallow-crusted sweet potato mash. A second outpost by Samuelsson, the more casual Streetbird on the Beach, serves the likes of crispy chicken sandwiches (slathered in hot pepper mayo) and calypso fritters (a conch–salt fish hybrid) from a food truck anchored in the sand. Icon Daniel Boulud imports a taste of France with Café Boulud, The Bahamas. Here, the marquee chef peppers a menu of French classics and signature dishes (hello, Tournedos Rossini) with Bahamian catch and produce.

As the world embraces the return of person-toperson interaction, Baha Mar follows suit with daily instructor-led programming. Try the one-of-a-kind Flamingo Yoga, stretching and planking among the property’s resident flock. Choose from a roster of art classes conducted at The Current Gallery & Art Center, including botanical leaf printing, landscape painting, and acrylic pouring. Hone your cooking skills with sessions for the entire family or select others that cater just to adults or kids.

Alternatively, craft your own schedule of active and leisurely pursuits, capitalizing on the surfeit of amenities. With multiple swim ming pools, the Caribbean’s only flagship ESPA spa, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature design Royal Blue Golf Course, the largest casino in the Caribbean, and a shopping arcade of 30 high-end brands, everything from fun in the sun to retail therapy is on tap.

Beyond its glorious day-to-day delights, Baha Mar has found a niche hosting events that appeal to gourmands, sports enthusiasts, philanthropists, and more. One highlight each year is The Baha mas Culinary & Arts Festival (formerly called Taste of SLS at Baha Mar), a decadent dining experience curated by the award-winning personalities behind the property’s restaurants coupled with inti mate performances. The 2022 festival, held last month, included appearances by celebrity Chef Amanda Freitag and Iron Chef ’s Ming Tsai, a performance by Boyz II Men, and more.

Another annual favorite is the Baha Mar Cup, a celebrity tennis fundraiser that last year saw Andy Roddick, Victoria Azarenka, and Mark Knowles battle it out in the name of charity while also engaging in matches with attendees and coaching local school children. The next Baha Mar Cup will take place next month, December 9-11, with another all-star lineup set to participate.

Without resting on the laurels of its initial success, Baha Mar surfaces as the pinnacle of megaresort chic, giving travelers the luxury of choice. This idyllic island getaway promises endless combinations of escapism, excitement, and indulgences, result ing in a memorable vacation for every personality within today’s travel set. bahamar.com

UNEXPECTED An Masterpiece

STUART | NOVEMBER 202230
A colorful oil painting by abstract artist Brian Rutenberg and a yellow mushroom seat by H. Allen Holmes pop against the modern white great room; a striking velvet chair flanked by artwork in the home’s entryway (right).

When former Lighthouse ArtCenter President

Pat DeAloia wanted to transform her traditional home in Martin County into a more contemporary and open space, she knew just whom to turn to: “master of the unexpected,” designer H. Allen Holmes

After admiring the interiors of a friend’s condominium, Pat DeAloia was eager to tap her friend’s designer to work on her own home. That person was H. Allen Holmes, a Hobe Sound–based designer who has worked on dozens of residential projects in the Hobe Sound/ Jupiter Island area throughout his 30-year design career (some of his work has been featured on the HGTV’s Top 10 series). Fif teen years and five collaborations later, Pat and her husband, Blaise, are enjoying Holmes’ most recent design in their new Jupiter Hills Club home.

In 2019, the couple decided to downsize from their 7,200-square-foot waterfront home in Jupiter to a one-story, 3,000-square-foot property in the exclusive Jupiter Hills Club, on the Martin County side of Tequesta. The 36-year-old home with two bedrooms, a great room, and two and a half baths sits on the fifteenth fairway of the golf course at Jupiter Hills Club.

31NOVEMBER 2022 | STUART

Clockwise from left: In the family room, a tomato red ottoman pops against the black and white Savino sofa and loveseat; the great room features three separate seating areas and is given an even airier feel by leaving the large windows bare; the home’s entryway.

“Blaise and I are avid golfers, so Jupiter Hills was an ideal choice for us,” says Pat, who was a member of Lighthouse ArtCenter Gallery & School of Art’s board of directors for nine years and president of the board for three of those years. “But we wanted to reconfigure the home’s compartmentalized spaces into a contemporary, open, interactive interior. I like to entertain and actually see my guests when they are here.”

Pat is also the founder of Integrated Technologies, a company specializing in advanced in formation technology enterprise network engineering. As CEO, she worked primarily with the U.S. Department of Defense and spent 30 years in the information technology industry. Her husband, also retired, was a pioneer in the wireless industry.

As Holmes set out to work his magic on the DeAloias’ new home, he worked with Hobe Sound–based Carrere General Contractors and Innocenti & Webel Landscape Architects. When he first looked at the living spaces and talked with the team, he knew there would be a lot of work ahead. He would need to collapse some walls to open up the living and dining rooms into one grand space ideal for entertaining. “Where the bar is located in the living room now was a separate dining room and another space when we started the project in 2019,” says Holmes. “We took down walls because it was too compartmentalized. Pat doesn’t like the feeling of claustrophobia, and she loves light, so we added windows where needed.”

Overall, the space now feels much more open and modern, with smooth white walls and ceilings, white porcelain flooring, and unique contemporary lighting synchronized via computer and aimed perfectly around certain fixtures. Clean lines, bright spaces with lots of windows, and many open areas to showcase the couple’s art collection flow throughout the home. “We have always tried to blend modern features into our homes,” says Pat, who

dabbles in collecting with Blaise, buying and selling various pieces of art. “Contemporary design is art-friendly, allowing us to feature our diverse collection without competing with ornate decor,” she adds.

As you enter the home through double doors that resemble a large window, you arrive at the entryway with a block wall that adds texture to the space. The wall is made of pan els from Mexico and was inspired by the work of American sculptor Louise Nevelson. The entrance is an ideal space to showcase the couple’s colorful, modern French painting on one wall, as well as the stainless-steel sculpture by Czech artist Alex Kveton that sits on a black wood base and granite pedestal. A beautiful velvet chair and a vertical work depict ing angels from the Lighthouse ArtCenter help set the stage for the art-filled home.

After the entryway, you enter the great room, a combination of living and dining areas with an open kitchen that overlooks the entire space. Holmes utilized artwork and accessories to add color to the white backdrop of the room, made even more open and bright by omitting window treatments.

There are three sitting areas in the great room, the largest of which is dominated by a colorful oil work by American abstract painter Brian Rutenberg. A yellow mushroom seat designed by Holmes picks up color from the painting. The vignette is rounded out with a pair of vintage white Vladimir Kagan sofas, colorful custom throw pillows, and a six-leg,

white octopus cocktail table atop a custom, handsewn white rug.

A few steps away stands a striking black and white geometric Ziqqurat high cabinet with red de tail, a great piece for both starting conversations and storing collectibles. Holmes came upon the piece in Italy, and the DeAloias love it. “Allen’s style is just enough,” says Pat. “It is never overwhelming or distracting. He is a visionary and imaginative, a master of the unexpected.”

Across the room is a black lacquer painted bar with a granite slab top. The integrated sink, a ma jor design feat that is free-shaped and resembles a lake, pops up when needed. “It’s my quarry sink,” says Holmes. “It reminds me of New England with a beach and lake inside.” Above the bar is a rect angular portrait of a crowd wearing sunglasses by self-taught Colombian artist Jorge Lujan.

A few steps away is a beautifully scaled Decca GAIT rectangular glass dining table with metal legs complemented by Poltrona Frau Fitzgerald leather dining chairs. The table can accommodate 8 to 10 people for the couple’s frequent dinner parties.

Near the dining table is the second sitting area, which showcases sleek, acrylic swivel bucket chairs (for easy interactivity) surrounding a black painted wood coffee table with stainless steel bars. The whimsical dog collectible atop the table adds color and fun to the space and was purchased by the DeAloias in Santa Fe.

Adjacent, the third vignette is ideal for smaller gatherings. Holmes created a clever high-low round glass table that rises 30 inches and turns. “This table is good for lunch with the ladies or dinner for two,” says Pat, who loves to cook. Stylish black and white Donghia Lana club chairs complete the sitting area.

The ebb and flow continues in the sleek, clean-lined kitchen, which is as functional as it is spectacular. The space was gutted during the renova tion, and a marble island was added to be a point of interest as well as a perfect place for storage and eating. Painted white Donghia Anziano chairs face the island, Sub-Zero appliances line the window wall, and the backsplash turns into the windowsill to create one clean edge. To the side, Holmes created a ledge that gives the appearance that the ceiling is almost floating.

A big challenge was the family room. The some what dated design included a wooden ceiling, a bay window, and only a 6-foot opening to the kitchen.

“It was not attractive,” says Holmes, bluntly. “So we opened the room to the kitchen and added a door into the garage. The window on the right was origi nally a door.”

The furniture and patterns in the family room feature Pat’s favorite decor colors: black and white. Simple, white leather de Sede lounge chairs get a boost from a tomato-colored ottoman. A black and white geometricpatterned Savino leather sofa and loveseat bookend the room, with a Cavan Carpets Everest area rug ty ing it all together. Two strong pieces of art stand out:

a portrait of a woman by contemporary Spanish artist Alberto Gálvez and one of the well-known Blue Dog paintings by late American artist George Rodrigue.

Pat prefers to keep the master bedroom fairly modest, and Holmes achieved that with a gray area rug, a platform bed with fitted bed spread, and subtle underlighting beneath the platform. “It’s a simple setting when I watch late-night news,” says Pat. The designer added sophistication and style with the selection of a Phillip Lloyd Powell–style brutalist mid-century silver-leaf ebonized credenza, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams Cooper full-swivel chairs, and Thayer Coggin black lacquer nightstands.

In the master bath, the couple can slip away into serenity in the minimalist space with two rectangular sinks and white mirrored medi cine cabinets that slide out like the garage door.

In contrast to the subdued master bedroom, the guest bedroom beckons overnight visitors with color. Custom multicolored throw pil lows create a splash on the bed, while two George Nelson Herman Miller mid-century modern steel-frame chests of drawers (one yellow, the other orange) flank the bed. A piece by German-American pop art ist Peter Max hangs above the bed. “This is a fun room,” says Pat. “Allen

Local architects, designers, and contractors discuss the benefits of sustainable building and highlight a few projects that will hopefully pave the way to a greener future

e all find ourselves admonishing the kids for leaving lights on and wasting energy, but the truth is, the energy thief is not the people living in your house—it’s your home itself. According to a 2020 Global Status Report released by the International Energy Agency and the United Nations Environment Programme, buildings like your home and office represent around 40 percent of both global energy use and greenhouse gas emissions, making buildings a major contributor to climate change.

Thankfully, many professionals constructing buildings today are committed to using green building processes to reduce the impact their industry has on the health of humans and the environment. Palm City–based Abney + Abney Green Solutions is a sustainable building consulting firm that works with owners, developers, architects, and builders on green projects. Owner Kyle Abney explains that sustainable building, commonly referred to as green building, encompasses numerous different elements of the building process.

“Sustainable building utilizes best-in-class building strategies and

practices in five key areas of human and environmental health: sustainable site development, water savings, energy efficiency, material selection, and indoor environmental quality,” he says.

“In short, sustainable buildings are designed to help reduce the overall impact on the environment and human health before, during, and after construction.”

A fifth-generation Floridian and the son of a builder, Abney first discovered the concept of sustainable design as a student at the University of Florida. At that time, he also learned there was a lack of environmentally friendly design happening and large amounts of waste regularly generated by construction. Passionate about creating change, he became the first person in the United States to obtain a construction degree with a concentration in sustainable building.

Abney recognized early on that the need for sustainable building was even more critical in South Florida. “Given our unique environment, climate resiliency is a

significant focus,” he says. “With Florida’s sea level rising as much as an inch every three years, according to NOAA [National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration] tidal station data, factoring nature’s upcoming shifts into construction plans is crucial. We must reduce our energy and water use so future generations have access to these essential resources.”

One of Abney’s favorite sustainable design projects is Sailfish Splash Waterpark in Stuart. Built in 2012, the park’s building strategies included diverting 75 percent of construction waste from landfills by recycling and salvaging construction and land clearing waste. The project also achieved a 39 percent savings in energy performance by incorporating systems such as sensors that automatically turn off lighting whenever occu pants leave a space. “It’s a project we completed several years ago but continues to earn me ‘cool dad’ points,” says Abney.

Bill Daly, vice president of Carrere General Contractors in Hobe Sound, called on Abney for help when a local couple came to him and asked him to build a sustainable home—the first truly “green home” in Martin County. The completed single-family home in the Floridian National Golf Club in Palm City earned a Gold LEED certification. (LEED—Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design—certification is a globally recognized sym bol of sustainability achievement and leadership. Gold is the second-highest level of certification.)

“The process was entirely different than the tra ditional construction process,” says Daly. “You have

to be very specific about the materials you use.” Many of the materials were sourced from within a 500-mile radius, including cypress and heart pine that was river-recovered (a process of re claiming wood from river bottoms) from the north Florida area and used for floors, ceilings, and doors. The home earned extra points for energy efficiency and utilizing solar and gas.

While it is rare for a home to achieve such a high level of sustainable design, Daly credits the homeowners for their progressive mindset toward green building. After all, it is projects like these that hopefully will create a ripple effect, prompting more homeowners to consider the environment in their renovation or construction plans.

“Builders need to educate them selves on the latest sustainable products and work them into their designs,” says Robert Brandon Jr., president of Jupiter-based Atlantic Crest Homes. Brandon has been designing and building homes in South Florida for more than 30 years, most recently in Abacoa in Jupiter and the Rivella community in Port St. Lucie. He con tinuously seeks out new ways to build with minimal environmental impact while still delivering maximum benefits to homeowners. “Sustainable building starts at the beginning of a project with considerations like how to orient the home to minimize sun exposure,” says Brandon. “Everything from choice of insulation to what paint you use to which appliances go into your kitchen can make a big difference in conserving energy and saving our planet.”

Brandon regularly opts for features that reduce energy consumption, including high-efficiency appliances, tankless water heaters, UV-protective exterior paint, high R-value insulation, and Low-E (emissive) impact windows that reflect heat. For

interior finishes, he uses sustainable materials such as bamboo flooring and Mohawk Everstrand car peting made from 100 percent recycled materials.

He encourages homeowners to do their own independent research before building a new res idence and become informed about the process. “Sustainable products have gotten more costeffective, and it doesn’t take very long for a home buyer to reap the long-term benefits of energy savings and efficiency,” he says.

On the commercial front, two local corpora tions are leading the way in green building in our area. Carrier Global Corporation’s headquarters, located just east of I-95 off Donald Ross Road in

Palm Beach Gardens, was the first commercial building in the state to earn LEED Platinum certification. A world leader in building and cold chain solutions such as HVAC, refrigeration, and fire and security, Carrier designed the 224,000-square-foot building known as the Center for Intelligent Buildings with green-forward technology like Abound, a cloud-based digital

platform that tracks, manages, and reports factors such as energy efficiency and carbon emissions within the building, allowing for real-time adjustments.

A little farther south, Florida Power & Light’s brand new office building near I-95 and PGA Boulevard fea tures not only the energy efficiency you would expect from the largest power utility in Florida but a host of sustainable aspects inside and out as well. The six-story, 266,000-square-foot building is constructed with LED lighting, low flow plumbing fixtures, high-performance mechanical systems, and 38 electric vehicle charging stations. A solar array on the top level of the parking structure generates renewable energy while providing shade. The building, which houses 1,000 employees, is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, allowing the utility to continue operations if it is forced to leave its Juno Beach headquarters.

When architect Niki Norton was building her new office space in Stuart, she brought her love for sustainable design

into the equation. The N2 Architecture + Design building on Southeast Ocean Boulevard features a front desk made from reclaimed rough fawn cedar, workstations built with wood doors, and chair rails created from old wood parquet floors that were rescued after a law office renovation. In 2017, the N2 office was awarded “Most Outstanding Green Interior Design – Small” by the U.S. Green Building Council.

“If I’m promoting building green and being sustainable, I need to show that in my office,” says Norton, who also updated the lighting system to LED and stripped the floors down to concrete for a more energy-efficient environment. “I am always interested in energy efficiency, especially in Florida where it is hot, hot, hot!”

Norton is quick to educate her clients on the merits of sustainable design and why it is smart and not as costly as they may think. “There is a misconception about the cost of being sustainable,” she says. “I like to use the example of insulation and HVAC tonnage.” Norton explains that using the right insulation in the right places helps create a “building envelope,” which is everything that separates the internal building from the external environment. Better protection from Florida’s heat on the outside means that inside, the HVAC unit doesn’t have to work as hard. “You can buy a lower tonnage unit and save a lot of money if you invest in better insulation,” she adds.

Norton is hopeful about the future of sustainable design, noting that green building materials are more readily available today. “I would like to see more general contractors and design-build professionals take advantage of the sustainable products that are available now and make a difference,” she says.

Kyle Abney sees the industry already changing for the better. “Two decades ago, green building certifications were introduced and set the precedent for change,” he says. “I believe that 20 years from now, there will likely be less need for ‘green-certified’ projects because greenbuilding practices are already being incorporated into building codes.”

It is a future that has been a long time coming. “What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?” Henry David Thoreau wrote in the nineteenth century. With sustainable building practices becoming more and more prevalent, future generations will be able to enjoy both a comfortable house and a healthy planet around it.

5 Ways to Your Home

Rey and Michelle Mendez, owners of the Rustic Rooster in Stuart, have been using reclaimed and sustainable materials to create custom home furnishings since 2003. Here, they offer tips on how you can incorporate sustainable design elements into your existing home. rusticroosterinc.com

Embrace reclaimed wood. When choosing furniture, Rey loves to see imported teak and pine in cabinets and tables. Barn wood is plentiful in the United States and can be used in a variety of furniture and decor. Choose eco-friendly upholstery. Furniture manufacturers like Rowe use fabrics produced with natural and renewable fibers, as well as wood from replenished, domestic forests for the frames.

Refinish existing pieces. “If Grandma’s old dresser is avocado green, you can do something with that,” says Michelle. Quality wood pieces can get a new, modern look with eco-friendly paints and finishes.

Repurpose. Many materials can be reimagined for a different use. “Antique doors make great wall art or a headboard for a bed,” says Michelle. Metal pipes, tree roots, old bricks, and weathered wood can all be repurposed into home decor.

Go for quality. If you are going to buy new, save up for a quality piece. “Invest in solid wood furniture instead of things that aren’t sustainably sourced,” says Michelle. “You’ll have it a long time and can always refinish it later.”
