Architectural specifications of gloss, leathered, honed, split face and chiseled stone on surfaces throughout the property provide interest and cohesiveness to support the indoor/outdoor aesthetic.

Velvet, silks, and lustrous finishes are utilized to create dramatic and sophisticated private spaces. Dynamic use of accent and architectural lighting provides depth of illumination through subtle layering throughout.
Costa Del Sol Remodel Gallery
The Great Room was remodeled to create one large area by removing the dividing wall between the kitchen and the living room, and exposing the cathedral ceiling to maximum height, creating an expansive feel. Folding patio doors were installed to allow for indoor outdoor living, and to expose the expansive view of the adjacent golf course.
The living room area of the great room is anchored by bold spice Valhallan wave effect textural wall covering. The chic environment is created by the architectural modern lighting, floating entertainment cabinetry, display shelving, and Italian leather and suede comfort furniture.
A neutral base palette was utilized with hi contrast accents for the kitchen area of the space. Customized mill work was designed to provide a highly functional environment. All kitchen wall surfaces were covered with split face Travertine, creating texture and warmth against the expanse of off white cabinetry. The espresso finished island provides a transition between functional areas.
In ‘her’ master bath, the sink cabinet was designed with divided drawers to provide maximum storage in minimal space, allowing for the vanity space to the right.

The Brizo plumbing hardware in 'Luxe Gold' is the perfect compliment.

Perfectly partnered is the custom beveled mirror: a combination of a gold outer frame with a gorgeous layered pearlescent inner frame, in which the pendant lighting is reflected.

Philharmonic House of Design 2015
Alternating stripes of cream and pearl metallic plaster create the illusion of height, transforming the space into a warm and welcoming dining retreat. The oval coffer has been embellished with a detailed wood like resin design that has been painstakingly silver leafed and gold glazed, then embellished with LED lighting. The ceiling creates a rich warm ambiance within the room.
Both the dining furniture and the petite bar showcase a wonderful combination of geometric and curvaceous design that is both sophisticated and warm, highlighted by the elegantly carved crystal chandelier. A luxury chair runner has been utilized atop the off-white upholstery of the head dining chairs, providing the opportunity to change the color accent with the season or event, along with the remaining table decor. Richard MacDonald's 'Joie de Vivre' sculpture beckons us to stop for a moment before taking in the dining patio just outside the doors. This space is striking by day, sophisticated and enveloping by night. Proceeds from the event benefit the Orange County youth music programs.
Scallop capiz shell placemats turned on the diagonal create a dynamic place setting. Rich gold chargers repeat the gold china trim and design on the salad accent plate. Beautifully embroidered napkins are contained with rhinestone embellished dragonfly napkin rings. Baccarat crystal completes the perfect pairing for this sophisticated setting.
Soft teal and navy provide a wonderfully welcoming palette for this inviting dining patio retreat. The ambiance from the surrounding greenery, trickling sounds of the shell water elements nearby, and comfortable club chairs invite you to relax and enjoy.
