For the master suite, we created an elegant and chic heaven with a sense of style that is conductive to rest and relaxation. We selected a specific color combination by mixing the quietness of a soothing neutral pallet with the sophistication and elegance of a pop of color provided by the 2 hand woven silk and wool rugs from India, and an original oil painting acquired in Paris 40 year ago. The lounge seating area invites you to linger and enjoy the breathtaking vista of the Golf of Mexico. Sinking into these chaises allows you to carve out restorative moments, to unwind, unplug and recharge.
For the second bedroom, we created a masculine mood by using wood, which energy is related to flexibility and human-heartedness, and promotes vitality, growth, and kindness.
For the third bedroom we added drops of blue, which is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. We incorporated green, the color of life, renewal, nature, and energy, and yellow that stands for freshness, happiness, positivity, clarity, energy, and optimism.
For the outdoors we built several square feet of covered outdoor living space, suitable for family enjoyment and friend’s entertainment.
We selected long lasting and low maintenance materials that can stand up to wind, rain, salt and sun in coastal areas. Concrete furniture provided a combination of strength and freedom of appearance. To achieve the rich look of a wood deck we selected tahoe ocre wood porcelain tiles that not only are durable, easy to maintain and clean, but also are environmental friendly.
