Our concept was to bring the quaint charm of the Gasparilla Inn at Boca Grande, and some old Key West character, to a classic vintage 1970's era condo on Bonita Beach, just north of Naples. Enjoy!

Here, (above image) you can see one of those sconces- and this really fun sunflower arrangement we created for the bar. Notice the new tile back splash which continues into the kitchen. In an homage to dear Carleton Varney, we had the tray ceiling in the kitchen painted a pale sky blue.

We used a bold punch of color in the small den, which pulls triple duty as a den-guest room-home office. The ceiling is also in poppy red, and we installed some new bead board wainscoting with the help of the talented Elson, the general contractor for this job. The painting is also by Bill's mother, circa 1965! The original frame was simply gessoed white. Notice the seashell glass lamp, one of a pair.
