Marci Tempesta, senior designer at the acclaimed Decker Ross Interiors, continues to build on her stellar reputation as the go-to designer at JMC’s Belleview Place in Belleair. She recently completed the lobby and a model in the Sunset building, the third of four mid-rise buildings on the grounds surrounding the historic Belleview Inn.
In this model, Marci, and her design assistant, Katie O’Neil, decided on a comfortable, elegant design aesthetic using a neutral color palette accentuated by soft aqua blues. Adding to the tranquility of the home, natural elements were integrated through the tasteful use of plants and greenery in decorative pots.
A sense of calm permeates the space upon entry, and unusual artistic furniture pieces and accessories delight the eye at every turn. The sculptural branch table base adds a whimsical natural touch in the foyer, while oversized lighting fixtures brighten the space and accentuate the high ceilings throughout. Designer touches are apparent in each room –from nail head trim, custom pillows and window treatments to gallery walls and special accessories.
Abstract designer area rugs add textural color and soften the lovely wood plank flooring carried throughout the residence. The designers utilized various textures in the furnishings and selected fabrics for contrast, depth and interest within the overall design. These creative decisions merged to create a sophisticated, serene space that is both comfortable and timeless
for residents of this upscale coastal golf course community in the heart of Belleair.
