Park Shore Home Evokes Chic Coastal Comfort

A new build in Park Shore leans into coastal elegance with a serene palette and organic textures


For all that Florida offers its residents, laborious upkeep is the last thing a homeowner wants. The elements, however, have a way of leaving their mark over time. One local builder took steps to minimize the impact of Florida’s harsh sun and torrential rains, and then partnered with a talented interior designer to deliver a residence as perfectly suited for our subtropical environment as modern technology would allow.

Said structure is a 5,000-square-foot, five-bedroom house in Naples’ Park Shore community built on speculation by Borelli Construction using only concrete and metal. Within five days of being listed, the place was purchased by a local couple.

“The house is very low maintenance,” says Parker Borelli, president of Borelli Construction, “and the building materials substantially influenced the design.” Thinner-than-usual trusses allowed the home to be engineered with 13-foot ceilings, which is sometimes unachievable with traditional wooden trusses. Even the windows and sliding glass doors used materials that minimize framing—some as narrow as an inch compared to traditional frames—to let more natural light in.

Beyond the nuts and bolts of the construction, the home’s layout evokes a sense of coastal comfort that all has to do with the work of interior designer Randi Scott, owner and principal designer of R & Co. Designs. Borelli gave Scott and associate interior designer Cristina Manguso great leeway in the finishing details. “Randi is very talented,” says Borelli. “She is really good at making a house turnkey and adding touches that are special.”

The first among those touches was establishing a soothing color palette with plenty of neutral shades, textures, and organic elements, but also with subtle blue hues that are repeated throughout the space. “It’s a comfortable color, perfect for Florida because it relates to the water,” says the designer. Wallcoverings added texture and softness. Unexpectedly, this technique was used on the expansive pitched ceiling of the second-story lounge area. “We have beams that contain up-lights, which create ambient illumination that really makes that ceiling shine,” says Scott.  

Just outside this area, an outdoor terrace is known as the “sunset lounge” because it’s where the homeowners like to bring their guests to enjoy drinks as the sun goes down over an expansive view of trees and the lights of neighboring buildings twinkle in the distance. Cocktail hour can easily lead to a game of chess in oversized swivel chairs with a bar nearby. “That space is a lot of fun,” says Scott. “It has a really good vibe that makes you want to hang out.”

The downstairs spaces are equally suited for entertaining. The great room features ample seating for conversation, while the spacious kitchen and dining spaces put an emphasis on traffic flow, making indoor/outdoor movement seamless. The kitchen houses an eye-catching custom wire-cable wine storage system behind it: “It incorporates porcelain that’s meant to look like blue calcite, with whites and blues and a bit of iridescence,” says Scott. “You walk by, and you’re really charmed by it.”

And charm was the goal of this house from the very beginning.  

“With this project, we thought of everything,” says Borelli. “All the homeowners had to do was bring their clothes.”
