It’s that time of year when professionals get together to celebrate the beauty of the home building industry in Collier County. The Romanza Interior Design team graced the stage of the Collier Building Industry Association‘s (CBIA) 2019 Sand Dollar Awards to receive two professional Trade Associate Awards for Best Kitchen and Best Master Suite for the Bianca model home built by London Bay Homes.
The Bianca at Mediterra
The Bianca was actually a top winner of the evening, earning London Bay Homes several awards for Product Design of the Year – Single Family Homes $2,500,001 – $3,000,000; Best Kitchen Design $2,500,001 – $3,000,000; Best Master Suite $2,500,001 – $3,000,000; and Best Outdoor Living Area $2,500,001 – $3,000,000.
The Bianca features three bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,735 square feet under air. One of the highlights of this floor plan is the massive great room that opens to a covered terrace with an outdoor kitchen and dining area and a custom pool with a sun shelf and spa. Other features include an island kitchen with wine storage, a bonus room with a linear fireplace, a private study, and pocketing sliders that open to the outdoors. The master suite includes dual walk-in closets and a bath with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The plan also includes a two-car garage and a one-car garage.
Interior designer, Luann Powers Gliwski, took on the task of bringing The Bianca to life with a design that provided a sense of relaxed luxury while conveying a feeling of exceptional livability. She achieved this with the vestibule from the great room that creates a sense of anticipation as it leads to a master suite that defines an understatedly elegant retreat.
The bedroom is enhanced with a subtle jewel-toned color palette with soft gold bedding and bronze and teal accents. On the headboard wall, a niche is finished with a stone textured wallpaper that provides a beautiful backdrop for both artwork and a fully-upholstered platform bed finished with a light charcoal velvet and adorned with an array of pillows that add layers of pattern and texture, along with a velvet bench spanning the foot of the bed.
Walking over to the master bath, your feet will glide on the light grey stone-finished porcelain tile flooring the leads into the walk-in shower, which features an expansive glass door and perfectly positioned square windows that allow natural light to flood the space. The walls are covered with white porcelain tile with a marble finish and shades of grey veining. A soft neutral-toned vanity cabinet is topped by a Pompeii quartz counter surface.
Heading back to the main rooms of the home, the kitchen features a pair of classic columns that delineate the space as you enter from the great room and into the open space where creamy white tones define a sophisticated, streamlined design created for optimum functionality. Sleek flat- front cabinetry and open, lighted shelving adorned with simple hardware of brushed nickel line both sides of the kitchen space. Illuminated by dual pewter-finished pendants, a charcoal-toned base island cabinet with a horizontal grain affords both additional storage and casual seating, along with a prep sink with a single handle bar faucet.
