Luxury Home + Real Estate



REFRESHING


Open up: What was once a galley kitchen with a formal dining area transformed into a casual space with open exposure to the living room and Gulf views beyond.


Win-win: Interior designer Janet Bilotti of Janet Bilotti Interiors coffered the ceiling in the living room for aesthetic as well as practical purposes. It allowed for extension of the air-conditioning duct into the space, offered an opportunity for mood lighting, improved acoustics and created the appearance of a higher ceiling. 


Sit and stay awhile: This condo on Gulfshore Boulevard is the second renovation Bilotti has done for the homeowners, so she was familiar with their lifestyle and preferences. “They didn’t want a lot of shiny, don’t-touch-me surfaces,” she says, “but rather something more friendly and inviting so that when you come in, you feel comfortable pulling up a bar stool and having a glass of wine.”


Hidden treasure: Powder rooms are a “thing” for Bilotti. “I like it to look like a little jewel box,” she says. She chose onyx for the shower, vessel sink and countertop, and a custom-designed vanity that allows space for storage underneath.
