Creating designs that capture the indoor/outdoor lifestyle on Anna Maria Island can be daunting; with tight lot sizes and strict zoning requirements, the task requires vision. The home concept immediately began with a modern design aesthetic to make the best use of natural light and sweeping bay views.
The goal was to create spaces that capture the views of Tampa Bay and to use the flat roof line as an opportunity for more leisure space on a roof top deck. Although the family agreed that the modern layout captured the views and maximized outdoor living spaces, they were concerned that the modern aesthetic would be “too cold” for their taste. The kitchen was designed with that statement in mind. To maintain a more casual modern feel, the designer used standard shaker cabinets in a deep blue. The floors are a driftwood color to help bring a coastal organic feel to the space. Wood tone and gold accents are also highlighted through the kitchen to give a warmth that complements the modern waterfall island.
