When the homeowner purchased this two-bedroom, two-bath home it was ripe for a renovation. The gold and mauve color scheme throughout begged for change. A contemporary, clean, sleek, Miami Beach-style home was the vision. Originally one big open space, it was actually a little too open. Thanks to the added shoulder-height linear fireplace there is now more distinct living areas. It serves as both a space-defining partition and a functioning decorative unit. And because it’s two sided, you can see straight through to the lake from the living room or, conversely, from the dining area into the living room.
Eight-foot glass doors and an arched window were replaced with 10-foot high sliders accented with a custom laser cut cornice and working drapes. The cornice detail matches up with trim that was added throughout the space, which breaks up the wall height. The home has 18-foot tall ceilings at the vaulted peaks and while the accent trim is painted white, the wall space is ombré in shades of blue lightening to the white ceilings. A warm taupe-finished maple flooring runs throughout, which helps ground the light blues and whites as well as the contemporary furniture. Orange accents (the homeowner’s favorite) pop throughout the living space and even make their way outside, most noticeably to a pair of bobbing head, large metal giraffe. The original pool area was, like the rest of the home, heavily Tuscan and was surrounded by mulch and grass and overgrown. A gorgeous vaulted undercover area was added for outdoor seating that perfectly melds with the rest of the elevation. Open to view from inside and out is the fire pit feature inviting a gathering on a cool evening. The home is now beautifully current, clean-lined and comfortable.
