Tropical living at its best is when you feel as though you're on permanent vacation. With a pool and lush landscaping at this modern home, it wasn't difficult to imagine yourself at a boutique hotel. The lines of the house were modern, although it had gone through several owners — each of whom had left their renovating stamp.
One of the biggest tasks was to update the kitchen which had the all too popular black granite countertops and blond wood cabinets that showed up in most kitchens a decade ago. The cabinets were sprayed a clean white and then replaced with new hardware. The herringbone patterned marble back splash is a marvel to see and lifts the kitchen out of the past.
Since most of the materials were a neutral base, we upholstered a dramatic red-orange fabric on matching mid-century side chairs. A sectional sofa helped anchor the living room area along with a custom-sized wall unit. Coordinating dec pillows carry the red-orange color across the room.
