Luxury Home and Design
ON THE HORIZON
The family room of this Moraya Bay condo is, not surprisingly, all about its views, from its muted, beachy tones to its pair of chairs that swivel to face the Gulf. The back wall, finished in Lokta paper—handmade from the renewable plant and colored with vegetable dye—is flanked by dark wood columns that reflect the custom cabinetry used throughout the home, explains interior designer Renee Gaddis.
This completely custom-built bar was crafted with a floating glass top to mirror the look of the Gulf. Dramatic stainless steel columns support the top, which is outfitted in leather-wrapped hardware, and Swarovski crystal pendant lights twinkle overhead.
TAKE A PEEK
In the master suite, Gaddis says, the open shelf, which now holds custom blown-glass vases and some other decorative metal pieces, was not part of the original floor plan. Instead, she and her team opened up the wall to allow natural light into the bathroom, which reflects the chocolate, amber and buttercream tones found in the master bedroom in its grass cloth and basketweave stone wall treatments.
GIVE IT A SWIRL
The wine room is also a departure from the standard Moraya Bay floor plan. Instead, part of the butler’s pantry was transformed with dark-stained wood wine racks and in the grout joints of the Indian rock flooring to maintain the flow of the rest of the home. The walls are backlit with fiber optics for its striking, vivid lighting.
HIGH AND MIGHTY
Gaddis outfitted the kitchen with glass upper cabinets and replaced its island with a high-top, sycamore veneer breakfast table, custom made for the space. The backsplash of blue, aqua and taupe glass echoes the home’s serene color palette.
The powder room is home to another piece Gaddis customized for the space: the vanity, which was originally designed as a storage console. The walls were crafted of wood veneer, and the ebony, high-lacquered floor reflects its sleek lines.
