Organic Tones Lend Serene Style to Aventura Townhome

Earth tones inspire subdued elegance at an Aventura townhome

For interior designers, inspiration can be unearthed anywhere. And in a region like South Florida, where breathtaking landscapes, historical buildings, and interesting neighborhoods are commonplace, new ideas are just waiting to be found.  

Inspiration works a bit differently for Miami designer Oshrat Rothschild of Sarvian Design Group. She extracts everything she needs to guide a project from that all-important initial conversation with the homebuyers. In the case of a 4,000-square-foot townhome in Aventura, which features four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a powder room, the clients (a husband and wife) resonated with organic tones combined with impactful art.

“I have always believed that neutral colors make design timeless, and that accessories and artwork can be utilized to create interest,” says Rothschild. “In fact, the addition of a particular sculpture or painting can give a room a totally different look.”  

Although some of Rothschild’s other projects require only the swapping of furnishings and art to enhance or change a home’s overall mood, the scope of this undertaking, which took almost a year to complete from start to finish, was much more extensive. That is because the designer oversaw a total gut renovation, which included shifting the kitchen to a completely new area of the home, removing a bathroom that was hidden under a cumbersome staircase, and adding an extra room to the second floor. “With all these adjustments, I was able to create additional open spaces, allowing for a more fluid layout,” says Rothschild. “The configuration now helps to promote communication and unites everyone when hosting guests.” 

Although the home is the primary residence of a husband and wife, the couple does have four children, several grandchildren, and more on the way, which means plenty of family visits. “I was keen on making sure that there would be room for babies to safely play, and for the adults to be able to watch them from the kitchen and living spaces without walls interfering,” says Rothschild. Her thoughtfulness from an architectural standpoint is apparent; for instance, instead of installing traditional columns that would have separated the kitchen from the living room, she opted for a floor-to-ceiling wine cellar encased in glass. What resulted was a focal point that is unique yet fully functional.  

Upstairs, in the primary suite, the vibe is elegant yet serene. “Every time I design a home, I think about how I am creating the most intimate and important spaces for my clients,” says Rothschild. “In the primary bedroom and bathroom, my intention was to elicit a spa-like environment that would immediately prompt relaxation.” That meant earth tones and aesthetically pleasing artwork in the bedroom, and custom cabinetry and precious details like a basin made from solid limestone in the primary bath. From space to space, the designer’s commitment to detail is evident. 

“It’s my privilege to use my skills to turn visions and dreams into reality,” says Rothschild. “As I see it, that’s what interior design is all about.”
