Award-winning Romanza Interior Design recently partnered with one discerning Naples couple looking to put their personal touch on their new home along 7th Avenue South.
Inspired by London Bay Homes’ popular Watlington custom home design, the couple collaborated with Senior Design Director Jennifer Stevens to create a design that was personalized to include warmer wood tones and soft watercolor accents. The design blends soft ivory venetian plaster with rich drapery in sea glass, blue grey and pearl tones and a warm oak floor that serves as the ideal backdrop for a collection of the couple’s favorite furniture pieces they’ve curated over the years.
“It’s been a beautiful work in progress,” said Stevens, “and a truly collaborative creation.”
In addition to Romanza, the couple worked with the London Bay design team to develop a floor plan on their current homesite with one very specific wish list in mind: a koi pond would serve as a unique focal point for the design of the home.
The wish became a beautiful reality. London Bay Homes’ in-house design team partnered with the couple’s Los Angeles architect to create a floor plan that positioned the master bedroom on the second floor, with a special balcony to showcase views of the koi pond and lush backyard below.
The home also has generously sized spaces, which are enhanced by a spacious great room with ample space for entertaining. The connection between large indoor rooms and outdoor areas enhances the home’s entertainment quotient. The great room flows out to a covered outdoor living area featuring granite counters and natural materials, along with the koi pond on full display.
Stevens also created a spa-line design in the master suite featuring a luxurious his-and-her vanity, with large shower and expansive two-person soaking tub by Kohler. Featuring a unique free-form shape, the tub is positioned in front of the window for dramatic effect. Solid-surface quartz countertops add an elegant touch.
Two additional guest rooms accommodate visiting guests while a study offers a multifunctional work space featuring a standup desk that can be lowered.
Additional accent elements include a large pivot front door and a glass-accent garage door.
The home is scheduled for completion this spring.
