Tailored Eclecticism Perfects Naples Waterfront Condo

Vibrant And Rich With Texture, This Tropical Getaway Featuring Timeless Beach Style With A Fresh Modern Edge Is Just The Right Fit For One Family’s Waterfront Condominium In Naples

Catering to clients with a strong point of view can be challenging for even the most seasoned professional. For interior designers Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, it’s the very way they built their business, and this New York-based husband and wife team relishes these unique opportunities. “I think eclectic best describes our design style,” Miller says. “We like to mix things up for interest, yet we keep it all tailored and edited.”

This proved to be the perfect mix for one couple looking for an interior designer to transform their 6,915-square-foot Naples getaway from dull and dated to “beachy-chic.” Up for the charge, Carrier and Miller stripped back some of the passé design elements and opened the space up to breathtaking Gulf views.Bringing the outside in, sandy hues wrap the walls while bright citrus tones add just the right amount of pop. Original travertine flooring flows throughout to unify the social areas.

With a fun mix of classic beach house meets modern chic, this carefully choreographed interior scheme keeps the eyes moving from room to room. In the dining area, a contemporary, Eero Saarinen-inspired oval table with a nickel-plated base centers the open expanse, where the intimacy of coral-colored wing back chairs offers a traditional influence. A vivid purple hue complements the brush of coral in a large abstract painting that exudes strokes of drama and excitement.

Beach inspired, the living area is all about texture play and eclectic style. The organic shape of a teak root cocktail table makes a stong statement as it boldly defies the rectilinear forms of the tailored sofas — clean-lined, mid-century pieces. Classic rattan armchairs join the social grouping as zesty citrus hues appear to celebrate the fun of classic Florida design.

To carry the feel of the beach through to the private spaces, grass cloth lines the walls in the guest room with an island-style texture. Wicker chairs continue the theme, while more orange and bright-green accents add a tropical punch. Lacquered-wood tray tables and a chrome floor lamp provide just the right amount of modern touches for balance.

Expanding the social spaces, the patio invites dining alfresco. Opening all the shutters delivers a tropical breeze and seamless panoramic ocean vistas. In an unexpected twist, the woven rattan chairs center a Belgian concrete table that adds a modern element. Bamboo lines the back wall in a final nod to the beach.

“You need to have that ocean-blue room,” says Carrier in reference to the master bedroom. “The cool tones are a nice contrast to the shades of sunburst throughout the rest of the home.” Mix-and-match patterns and styles come together flawlessly in the serene, spa-like suite. Here, a sitting area by the windows makes the perfect sanctuary.

“There’s a peacefulness and a timeless quality to this home; but what keeps it stylish and interesting is our push for simplicity,” Miller says. “We were able to combine traditional beach design with cool modern elements to give this family a perfect holiday getaway tailored just for them.”
