This Project’s “Don’t Miss” Details

The beautifully flamboyant contemporary art pieces throughout the home, including commissions by Bob Rankin


The fun contrast between the contemporary buffet and American-made walnut dining set and the crystal chandelier and votives in the kitchen’s dining area


The main living room’s soft palette, inspired by the soothing views of the private yard from its floor-to-ceiling windows


The kidney-shaped rug used to emulate and underscore the living room’s curvilinear wall


The wall display of various sized colorful bowls, nickel “sea urchins,” and crystal-tipped sunbursts


The den’s dark walnut media cabinet and area rug depicting swimming koi fish


The pops of orange, green, and cobalt from the den’s artwork, florals, accent pillows, and other decorative accessories


The master bath’s expansive, spa-like shower, sleek freestanding bathtub, and wall of floor-to-ceiling shelves


The large-format tile in the shower and the wall behind the wall-mounted vanity in the tiny guest bath (which certainly deserves an award for “Most Improved Space” in this home)
