Brilliant Shades of Blue Brighten Talis Park Condo

Shades of blue canvas this Talis Park condo, while an array of French-inspired pieces elevates the essence of elegance and expressions of the soul


they say some things are meant to be, or so it seems for the homeowners of this 3,300-square-foot condo in Naples’ Talis Park Golf Community. It was destiny when the couple met interior designer Pamela Harvey at a country club in their hometown in Virginia. The random encounter led Harvey to her clients’ first renovation, then again to their vacation home in Naples set to become their year-round dwelling. Having utmost trust, Harvey took the lead role in the project. “I listened to their goals and how they wanted to live; I wanted it to feel like their home, not mine,” the designer says.

In prelude to what lies beyond, the foyer unfolds to a space that is welcoming and warm. Here, the focal point is a strikingly detailed blue chest with its brass knobs and ultra chic gold trim around the frame and drawers. “The Greek Key-style legs and all the patterns come together beautifully,” Harvey says. Juxtaposed, a navy lattice-back chair offers a flattering look without steeling the show away from the intricate pattern dressing the wall.   

Stepping into the great room, vibrant colors and shapes effortlessly merge as lively patterns accentuate a pair of sofas swathed in Sunbrella’s bold blue stripes offset with a subtle Greek Key pattern. The vibrant, blue-and-sandy hued geometric pattern in the embroidered drapes plays an interactive role in liaison to the other elements in the living area. Natural and soft-spoken components collaboratively create an organic backdrop as the cerused oak flooring speaks to the sisal area rug banded with a navy blue border. In the center of it all, the aged oak wood cocktail table exudes a rich and warm sophistication. “The piece enhances the natural wood floor while warming the space,” Harvey says.

Meant to withstand the test of time, the crisp white kitchen cabinetry topped in quartz makes a classic statement. Nearby, an octagon-shaped breakfast nook drenched in natural light takes on a buoyant personality all its own. “We wanted a sunny happy place for breakfast time,” the designer says. A braided area rug in a calming blend of blues and turquoise adds textural warmth and dimension to the casual dining space, while a cheerful floral valance pays historic homage to the renowned Josef Frank’s “Citrus Garden” print for Schumacher. A sky-blue ceiling and antique white pedestal table offset the vibrant color scheme.

Often interpreted as romantic, a French provincial flair wraps the master bedroom. “It was the lady of the house who selected most of the furnishings,” the designer says. A tufted headboard clad in oatmeal linen and adorned with nailheads is more than enough paired with blossoming custom panels wrapped in a linen Chinoiserie pattern. The light fixture is not to be forgotten as it sparks a touch of modernism while becoming the center of attention.

For the man of the house, the office is perfectly bespoke. Armed with color as a bright-blue, flat weave wool area rug is harmonious with the darker blue linen window panels trimmed with an Ikat pattern for the lead edge. Circling above, a charming, wood globe light fixture resonates with the other natural aspects in the space. An updated wing chair catches the eye with its paint stroke box pattern in blue and chartreuse — a glance of the visual excellence found throughout the home.
