Over the course of twenty-five years, Decker Ross Interiors has created some spectacular interiors in various JMC developments. But the opportunity to actively participate in the reinvention of the historic Belleview Biltmore property in Belleair, specifically the residences at Belleview Place, was a particular honor. Senior designer Marci Tempesta took the lead on the project, starting with her award-winning design in the Carriage Home Model A. She was subsequently asked to design the lobbies and models in the mid-rise buildings, beginning with the Alamanda, which offers spectacularly expansive views of the Belleair Country Club Golf Course, the Intracoastal Waterway and the iconic Belleview Inn and pool.
Showcased here is the Mid-rise Model C, in which Tempesta created a sophisticated urban design aesthetic featuring earthy natural elements with a bold brown and black color palette. A departure from the dark teal and champagne tones used in the lobby, Tempesta’s talent, creativity and depth of design knowledge is evident not only with her color choices, but because of her attention to detail as well. Asian influences and geometric shapes provide a common design theme throughout, and points of interest and whimsical touches delight the eye in the designer’s choice of accessories, art and lighting. Showcasing different styles to appeal to a variety of potential buyers’ tastes and lifestyles, this timeless, sophisticated design is eliciting positive feedback and contributing to the popularity and success of Belleview Place.
