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.

Working remotely is a breeze in this tastefully designed office featuring a custom dimensional wall molding and dangling crystal chandelier accents. The unusual capiz shell top desk with stylized burnished steel double diamond base provides a clean line for an uncluttered work surface.
This elegant dining area is anchored by a table base of onyx laminated stone with pearlescent sheen. Suspended above is a sophisticated chandelier made of interlocking orbs containing recycled glass pieces. The circular design motif is repeated with the silver sculpture sitting atop the round beveled glass tabletop.

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.

This top treatment of custom knotted basket weave drapery draws interest and attention to the high ceilings prevalent throughout Belleview Place residences. Two-toned, round color block stools offer a fun mobile perch overlooking the outdoor space, or can be utilized elsewhere as needed.
An artistic sculptural branch console table base adds dimension and visual impact upon entering the foyer. The concentric circular mirror evokes a slight nautical “porthole” aesthetic above the tabletop 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.
