Beasley & Henley Interior Design Sizzles at Tiburon
Beasley & Henley design of WCI Communities condo garners much attention.
Naples—April 2012—Interior design heavy-hitters Beasley & Henley Interior Design have installed their latest model for WCI Communities, the Marquesa Royale, in the Tiburon development in Naples, Florida.
When Beasley & Henley installs a model, people tend to pay attention — and the Marquesa Royale was no exception. During the three days when furnishings were being installed in this 2950-square foot luxury condo, people were stopping by in droves.
“From the very first day we started to install, we had dozens of people walking in,” said Beasley & Henley designer Dan Killgore. “Even before all the furniture was in place, we had BHID fans looking around, saying hello and admiring what they saw!”
Beasley & Henley, with offices in Naples and Winter Park, is known for its sophisticated, livable, and inspiring interiors. Their much-loved designs help homes sell quickly and inspire individual homeowners to commission Beasley & Henley to create custom designs for their own residences.
The designers’ Marquesa Royale interiors feature a color palette of warm grays, tone-on-tone white and creamy neutrals, and pops of bright, sunny gold to appeal to American and European buyers.
According to Beasley & Henley principal designer Troy Beasley, “We want the buyers at Tiburon to think, ‘This place is fabulous. I could easily spend time here.’ ”
The design is sophisticated and soothing with an eclectic mix of modern abstract art, clean-lined furnishings, reproduced antiques, whimsical accent pieces, and oversized prints on throw pillows and draperies.
The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath Marquesa is a luxury condo in the prestigious community next to the Ritz-Carleton Golf Resort in Naples.

Modern architecture and contemporary design join forces at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, a 70,000 square foot, $115 million structure in Boston.
The museum is an open, airy, light-filled box that stands respectfully behind the Venetian-style palazzo, erected in 1902 by Gardner as a repository for her extensive collection of fine and decorative art. Italian architect Renzo Piano’s new building for Boston’s beloved Gardner, commonly referred to as “The Palace,” contains more than 2,500 paintings, furniture, rare books, tapestries, and decorative art with works that range from Titian and Rembrandt to Degas and John Singer Sargent.
We have a great thank-you in our hearts for those who gave their lives for our country. We don’t need to sprout off a long, elaborate speech about this. We offer a simple thank you, and that is all. Happy Memorial Day to everyone.
Design team Beasley & Henley know a masterpiece that exudes modernism and echoes contemporary when they see it. Such is the case with the IXOS House, with an artful design by AABE with incredible attention to detail – you can see it in the fabrics, the colors, even the arrangement of the furnishings. Combine this careful composition with clean white design, and you have the makings for a very inspiring and comfortable home.
Proportion is a key player in this modern design. Oversized furniture, such as the bulky, but balanced, office table, are functional and so full of character. This “larger than life” design theme also applies in the open dining space, featuring dominating artwork and a 10-person dining set illuminated by a series of cube pendants.
The inspiring, mesmerizing IXOS House in Spain is an exciting design find – worth accolades.
Whether sipping on a glass of wine and relishing the vista or basking by this groovy pool area, this spot reeks of contemporary design and styling. If you want to infuse this kind of savoir faire in to your abode, design team Beasley & Henley should be on your list. With a portfolio to wow, the design team of Beasley & Henley can help you realize your vision and make it a reality.
Contemporary design is front and center in these renderings of Porsche‘s North American headquarters to be built in Atlanta, Georgia. Though we have interstates in the U.S. instead of the Autobahn, you gotta love a Porsche. The speed, handling, and design have long drawn the admiration of car-crazed America. Porsche returns the love by building a new headquarters for Porsche Cars North America in its current base of Atlanta.
HOK, which captured the commission, is not planning any old rigamarole design. After all, this is Porsche. Rather, the contemporary design behemoth will construct a 200,000-square-foot complex, which will be the centerpiece of a 26-acre aerotropolis near Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. (For the record, an aerotropolis is an urban plan designed around an airport, often composed of office parks, hotels, and cargo holdings, which is just as accessible to commuters half way around the world as it is to those living within a few miles.)

Meanwhile, Stephanie Henley grew up in a family of publishers. Though entrepreneurs often beget entrepreneurs, it wasn’t so easy in her case. “I didn’t have a straight path at all,” she laughs. “It was circuitous to say the least.” Starting out in her native Canada with a short detour though France, Stephanie worked in foreign exchange and finance analysis for large companies. Eventually, she settled (via that circuitous route) in Florida. “Finance was great and my experiences were invaluable, but after a while it became rigid. You have to open up and find your creative wings.”
When the two met up, the synergy of their backgrounds – Troy in the arts and design, and Stephanie in finance and marketing – was hard to ignore. When Stephanie suggested they capitalize on their complementary strengths and go into business together, Troy agreed.
That was 13 years ago.
Today, Troy is the Principal Designer and Stephanie is the CFO of Beasley & Henley Interior Design, a multiple award-winning firm based in Winter Park. Their work has been published in Florida Design, Orlando Magazine, Florida HomeBuilder, International Homes, and Gulfshore Life magazines, to name just a few. Beasley & Henley creates designs for both private residences and commercial clients, including projects such as clubhouses, towers, hotels, and corporate offices. Most of their residential work takes them to upscale areas across the southeastern United States and beyond. Still, they enjoy working in Winter Park. “It has such a quaint atmosphere,” Stephanie says. “It’s a very cozy place to be in and around.”
“But it’s really about the space,” he explains. “A lot of times you walk into an empty room, and the way the light comes in or the orientation of the view will give the space a different feel. I base a lot of what I do on that initial feeling.” For Troy, it is important to take the time to think a design through and be open to changing direction if necessary.
“Design is so intertwined with architecture and the arts – all the things you love to see when you travel. We never really get away from the interior design. We see it in everything.”
