Dock Holiday

These homeowners wanted a contemporary, coastal interior with bright, natural and airy design elements. The end result is this 3,500-square-foot, three bedroom, and three-and-a-half bathroom waterfront home that includes a variety of mixed materials for contrast, which was key to this home’s award-winning interior design.

Black windows match the black interior elements, such as the kitchen hardware, staircase railings, and grill pattern on the pantry door. White countertops coordinate with the shiplap and cabinets, while wood elements in the island, range hood, and barstools soften the white kitchen. All of these materials are different, but when tied together, complement each other well.

The kitchen features custom-made reclaimed maple from an old basketball court that goes with the apron surrounding the custom shiplap range hood built in the field, as well as the countertop and open shelving in the wet bar off the living room. The kitchen island boasts a quartz countertop for the food prep area outlined with reclaimed maple along the eating area. One key feature is a custom glass window backsplash that overlooks the canal. To keep the main kitchen and living area bright and airy, recessed lights were used instead of pendants for an open feel and to capture the water views.

Another request by the homeowners was to create an indoor/outdoor living space so pocket doors were installed that open to a screened-in porch, creating an ideal setting for entertaining or relaxing with family. A rooftop deck features hurricane-proof clear railings for unobstructed views of the bay.
