Welcome to a tour of our recently completed residential interior design for a new construction home nestled in Lakewood Ranch. Our clients reached out to us a year ago while living abroad in Italy! They’ve traveled extensively throughout Europe while planning their final move to Florida upon their retirement.
Interior Designer in Lakewood Ranch, Homeowner in Italy. No problem.
Our initial working relationship consisted of emails and Skype video calls coordinated to align with our two time zones. From 5,000 miles away, we conceptualized the perfect design to meet the couple’s style and budget, while working through all the final selections and details an ocean apart. Our final design took advantage of the home’s fabulous layout of an indoor/outdoor space plan, making it the ultimate retreat for an active life in retirement as well as hosting visiting friends and family.
A Natural Color Palette for Indoor-Outdoor Living
Inspired by the home’s natural surroundings, our color palette celebrates the greenery of this country club community along with the rich blues of their private pond, while harmonizing the overall aesthetic with soft upholstered furniture pieces. Upon entering the home you’re immediately met with a cozy living room, which has unobstructed views through the dining room and into the kitchen.
Spicing Up the Kitchen
The home was built with a brick backsplash wall in the kitchen, a feature the homeowners had loved from the builder’s model. We modernized the space while complimenting the earthy character of the brick with mercury glass bell jar light fixtures and a mixture of white glazed and copper metallic accessories, uplifting the ambiance against the dark-toned cabinetry.
Country Club Inspired Bonus Room
The bonus room is the ultimate lounge space with easy access to the lanai. Made for entertaining, it is the quintessential hangout for family gatherings with plenty of space to nestle into for game nights. We designed this space to include plush upholstered seating paired with wall-to-wall wool draperies to cozy up the space and soften the acoustics in this entertainment space.
Tropic Garden Master Bath
The master bathroom of this home includes a luxurious freestanding bathtub with an outdoor view. We infused the space with a tropical feeling with the addition of customized floor-to-ceiling sliding shutters. The end result easily turns the everyday into a getaway for our clients.
We stayed in close touch with the builder as construction wound down, provided the necessary lighting fixtures, and installed all the furniture, custom window treatments and artwork in step with the home’s completion and our clients’ final arrival in Sarasota. The grand reveal was filled with utter delight and tears of joy.
We’re so thankful for such wonderful clients and the beauty we’re able to bring into their lives.
