Welcome to Part One of our Behind the Design series for our latest project, Seaside Modern. The homeowners of this Kalea Bay condo desired a space more daring than their traditional roots; a design that made them step out of their comfort zone. Today, we are taking you on a tour of the foyer, kitchen, grand salon, powder room and den!
We like to look at a foyer as the first chapter of a book. It gives insight into what to expect from the rest of the house. This foyer feels clean and coastal with a touch of understand drama. The elevator door is painted in Sherwin Williams Iron Ore.
A custom, live-edge wood feature wall lies just past the entry way. To balance contemporary furnishings, organic elements like wood were introduced.
The highlight of the kitchen space is the black and brass art deco inspired backsplash by Vanessa Deleon. Juxtaposed with custom white built-ins and an upholstered banquette, this space feels sophisticated yet approachable.
A Gregorious Pineo tribal wallcovering brings texture and dimension to the Grand Salon. Balanced with neutral furnishings, the space takes on a warmer color palette of silvery grays and chocolate browns. A rich-toned yuka wood cocktail table plays off of the mirror feature wall. The fireplace built-in features a unique quartzite slab detail.
The powder room features a geometric, block print wallcovering that nods to the art deco movement. A pebble backsplash, burnished bronze cabinet pulls, and hanging pendant fixtures add to the subtle drama of this space.
W Design transformed the fourth bedroom in this penthouse condominium to an office/den. The sleeper sofa pulls out to become a bed to make room for more guests. A nautical color palette of navy blue and white feels cheery and delightful.
