Beasley and Henley Interior Design has been selected to create interiors for the new Marquesa Royale luxury penthouse condominium model at Tiburón, a 943-acre resort community neighboring the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort, Naples.
Visitors to the new model may be overcome by a sudden desire for instant gratification. At least, that’s what interior designer Troy Beasley hopes.
“This home has an inviting environment that people will enjoy as they walk from room to room,” said Beasley, design principal at Beasley and Henley. “I want them to think, ‘This is fabulous, I could easily spend time here and I want to buy it.’”
Beasley and Henley, with offices in Naples and Winter Park, is creating a sophisticated, soft modern design throughout the three-bedroom home’s 2,900 square feet of air-conditioned living space. Its color palette of warm grays, tone-on-tone white and creamy neutrals and pops of bright, sunny gold will appeal to American and European buyers.
“It’s sophisticated and soothing, almost like a salon look,” said Beasley, who is accenting the space with an eclectic mix of modern abstract art, clean-lined furnishings, reproduction antiques, whimsical accent pieces and oversized prints on throw pillows and draperies. “The concept reflects a couple who travel and have collected items they love during their travels.” Beasley and Henley’s design also reflects today’s technology and the tendency for entertaining. Instead of a room-filling desk in the media room, the designer opted for a comfortable sofa and small desk. “Most people come to Naples to entertain friends and get away,” Beasley said. “They have laptops or iPads these days and don’t have to be hooked into the wall. They might go online for a few minutes to check email or stocks.”
In the kitchen, Beasley and Henley converted a storage area into a bar with an under-counter wine refrigerator, glass tile backsplash and upper cabinets with glass doors, an option offered to homebuyers through WCI’s Design Studio. “It’s the perfect spot for a cocktail area,” he said.
“The home’s main rooms are connected visually to make moving about feel natural and effortless,” Beasley added.
