A mid-century modern luxurious design aesthetic with a soft pastel color palette was decided upon as the design direction. Blush pink, soft teal and neutrals, such as taupe and sand tones to be reflective of the panoramic beach and sky views, were used throughout. Adept at mixing materials and finishes to create an optimal design aesthetic, the designer incorporated
organic elements, such as wood, agate, brass, steel and glass in the furnishings, lighting and accessories. Her innovative designs also feature a variety of geometric shapes and quite a bit of textural contrast. In addition to leather, the rich elegant fabrics include chenille, shimmering linens, cut dimensional velvets, and faux fur to delight the eye and add visual interest in the rooms of this exquisite penthouse.
The art studio’s views of the sand, surf and sunsets provide inspiration for the homeowner, who is a painter. There, as with the rest of this opulent island penthouse, the designer’s attention to detail, artistic sensibilities and use of elegant, yet functional, high quality, comfortable furnishings creates a timeless interior that reflects the owner’s taste and lifestyle.
