3550 Mistletoe Lane

Be prepared to spend some time at the home of Rona Romney and Bruce Kulp. This reconstructed home has elegance and simplicity of design, with treasures to be found in every corner. But the biggest treasure of all, perhaps, is the panoramic view of Sarasota Bay as seen from huge living room windows or from the poolside terrace. Upon entering the home, your eye is immediately caught by a sparkling crystal chandelier and a beautiful hand-painted domed ceiling. Continuing through the home, there is an intriguing blend of contemporary, European, antique and tropical Floridian influences. Left: A bronze mermaid statue dominates one of the walls.

FABULOUS FINDS by Dora Walters | Senior Editor

ECLECTIC ART by Robin Hartill | Community Editor

Contemporary comfort

Anne Allen bought this vase and others like it from a Sarasota gallery because they fit the contemporary style of the living room.

Th e ALLE N h ome 3521 Bayou Point

The Bayou Point home of Anne and Jerry Allen has a contemporary feel. And, although the residence houses an extensive art collection, Anne Allen doesn’t seek out any particular artists. “I just see things I love, and that’s that,” she said. The Allens moved into the home last summer from another Bay Isles home. They took most of their furniture and artwork with them from their previous house, and, according to Anne Allen, much of it looks even better in the new home than in the home for which they bought the A R pieces. The home features mostly shades of brown and cream and boasts a wide view of Sarasota Bay.

In decorating the master bedroom, Anne Allen says that her goal was “to make the whole bedroom a work of art.” The bar features granite counter tops and a combination of wood-andblack accents.

Two paintings on the guest bedroom's wall match the black-and-white decor of the room.

Anne Allen bought this wall hanging from a downtown Sarasota gallery.

The kitchen combines stainless steel, granite, wood and glass.

Relaxing residence Th e DE FRATUS h ome 701 Marbury Lane

A love of gardening and the outdoors is evident at the Pam and David DeFratus home. A custom-designed trellis with bougainvillea leads to the residence, which is named “Bougain Villa.” The yard surrounding the home is a treasure of tropical plants, herbs, banana trees, palms and vines. Throughout the house are details of particular significance to the owners. There is a display case of American spoons collected over the years by Pam DeFratus, and some of her nature photographs A display case is filled with a collec- line the wall in the living tion of American area. spoons.

The home of Joe and Martha Murphy reflects the time and interest they spent to make it their own. A solid wall on the first floor was replaced with floor-toceiling windows that provide a superb view of the bayou. The living room has an air of serenity with earth-tone furnishings and a panoramic view of the bayou. The furnishings in the rest of the home continue the earth tones found in the living room.

The living room provides the comfortable but eclectic style that Beverly Shapiro says sums up her home. Scenes from New England decorate the wall.

The story behind Mel and Beverly Shapiro’s home is simple: Every piece in the condominium has a story. There are Early American furniture pieces from the couple’s first home in Marblehead, Mass., along with a wall full of paintings. There are also many Judaic works of art that the couple A candlebrought back from their travels in Israel, stick from and sculptures from Ajijic, Mexico, Ajijic, Mexico. In addition, many of the sculptures were made by the couple’s daughter-inlaw, Susan McInnis Shapiro. “This is a story house,” Beverly Shapiro said.

ORIGINAL LOOK by Robin Hartill | Community Editor

Historic home Bob Chipman bought this ceramic jar from the Woman’s Exchange, in Sarasota.

The living room is part of the original structure of the home. Most of the other rooms have been added over the years.

Thank You Sarasota…

Bob Chipman’s home has been through renovations over the years. But the original structure of the 1940s home, which was designed by Herb Field, is still intact, now forming the living room of Chipman’s home at Dock on the Bay. Chipman bought the home in 1978, and over the past three decades, he has worked with designer Susan Smith, who also manages Dock on the Bay, to create a look that combines the home’s history with contemporary touches. “He tried to keep that Old Florida atmosphere,” Smith said. The home features soft colors, such as beige and cream, with splashes of color from artwork, most of which was purchased locally.
