On Site: Beachfront Custom Condo

For our team a highlight of every project is watching our designs come to life during construction. Witnessing this project, a 5,000 square foot beachfront condo progress from a concept, to design drawings on a page, to physical reality was a truly exciting transformation. Along with these snapshots we took on a site visit towards the end of construction, I’m going to share some excerpts of our original design drawings to illustrate the progression of how a Space as Art interior design project moves from design, to documentation, to completion.

Office Nook

Instead of closing the husband’s office into a separate room, we made it a feature off the main hall with open views to the patio.



Awaiting drawer fronts, the custom office nook cabinetry is just about finished.

Master Bath

Almost complete, this master vanity area awaits installation of pendant lighting and a sleek mirror frame.


I have seen a lot of wood-look porcelain tiles from more manufacturers now than I can count, and among them all this product is in my top 3. For an earthy, spa feel we did the floor and tub surround in this gorgeous wood-look porcelain with a sporadic tree-ring pattern and a varied polished/matte texture that highlights the pattern’s relief. We clad the tub/shower dividing wall in a subdued blue stacked pebble mosaic the owner fell in love with. The jetted spa tub fills from the ceiling creating a dramatic center point.

Powder Bath

Our client wished for a small bath to make a big statement. Located near the home’s main entertaining areas, this contemporary jewel box of a bath features three-dimensional, woven texture glass tile mosaic, a backlit mirror, and back painted glass. The color palette channels the Gulf of Mexico.

Guest Bath

Each of the condo’s four bedrooms has its own en suite bath. The natural, beach-contemporary vibe continues into this guest suite’s bath which features custom cabinetry, an oversized accent band of hexagonal glass tile mosaic, and frameless glass shower.
