Jinx McDonald Interior Designs, Inc. (JMID) recently completed the renovations on a 11,000 square foot home in Port Royal. The home, which takes advantage of the spectacular water views of Naples Bay, earned JMID a CBIA Sand Dollar Award for Best Outdoor Living Area in a home over $5,000,000.
“The homeowners purchased this five-bedroom, five-and-one-half bath property because it had enough interior wall space to showcase their impressive personal art collection,” said Minka McDonald, President of Jinx McDonald Interior Designs. “The home needed to be thoroughly remodeled, however, in order to elevate it to the bold, grand and luxurious gem that it is today.”
Upon entering through the grand foyer, you are greeted by two-story-high windows that feature vistas of the inlet, framed with dramatic silk embroidered drapery panels. A comfortable conversation space is accented with aqua blues and emerald green upholstered pieces, as well as a custom cocktail table made with a precious stone agate.
Attention to detail was given throughout each space; the powder bath and his study were given a complete makeover so they would be more functional and attractive spaces. In the study, a custom ceiling detail was designed out of Madagascar Zebrano wood. This same wood was featured on the custom credenza and desk. The credenza is topped with a gorgeous onyx with a waterfall edge that is underlit to show off the stone’s natural beauty.
Additional unique features in this home include the wood floors that were refinished in a black walnut stain. While other rooms such as the master bedroom, dining room and kitchen were given minor modifications to develop a more cohesive, overall design concept. Many countertops were removed and replaced, and all decorative light fixtures were modernized.
“With the outdoor kitchen, we utilized a gorgeous quartzite ‘Lapis Lazzuli’ for the new countertops on all the kitchen cabinetry and clad the front of the bar and waterfall down the exposed side,” said Lead Designer, Chrissy Howard. “The magnificent blue of the countertop marries well with the flask-shaped, high-luster peacock blue accent tile above the range in the backsplash. It is surrounded by a creamy subway tile with a crackle finish for balance.”
At the bar, fireplace and pool side, new furniture in a coffee-finish, resin-weave with creamy colored base fabrics and topped with peacock blue and spring green pillows were added to create attractive and comfortable conversation areas.
“The entire exterior ties together beautifully and invites you outside to enjoy the astounding surroundings. We’re very grateful to have worked on this special space and that it earned JMID a CBIA Sand Dollar Award for Best Outdoor Living Area in a home over $5,000,000,” concluded McDonald.
