While shopping around for a permanent home with more storage, a retiring couple from Texas decided they really didn’t want to sell their beautiful waterfront vacation condo on Island Estates in Clearwater, making the decision to renovate it instead. During their home search, they had toured the award winning Carriage Home model at JMC’s Belleview Place in Belleair and had fallen in love with the interior design. They were confident that Marci Tempesta of Decker Ross Interiors was the designer who could transform their dream design into a reality.
After meeting with the couple, who communicated their ideas and desires, Tempesta proceeded to develop an elegant coastal-inspired vision featuring a juxtaposition of organic, natural elements and finishes with a clean linear design. A soft toned monochromatic color palette of taupe, grays and beiges runs throughout with the occasional blue accent reflective of the location on the Intracoastal Waterway. Tempesta creatively included storage solutions and utilized a variety of patterns and textures to add depth and interest to the design aesthetic. Her use of warm organic elements, like live edge wood and driftwood, along with sleek hard surfaces, such as glass, metal and quartz, demonstrate her expertise in the design field.
Tempesta and her assistant Katie O’Neil created a luxurious well-appointed design, filled with custom features to suit the couple’s taste and lifestyle perfectly. The former Texans couldn’t be happier with their decision to stay in their newly designed home.
