NAPLES, Fla.--(Romanza Interior Design will create a “classic design with a touch of surprise” for the Eloro model now under construction in Lucarno, a European-inspired village of luxury maintenance-free villa homes, cobblestone streets and lakes at Mediterra.)--Melissa Allen of
“classic design with a touch of surprise”
The three-bedroom, three and one-half bath villa model, built by London Bay Homes, will feature clean-lined furnishings mixed with graphic prints and a color scheme of bright tangerine, vibrant aqua and kiwi greens. The designer’s surprises will include pops of yellow and touches of oriental throughout the model’s 3,380 square feet of living space.
“The use of bright paint colors, especially the orange guest bedroom, will definitely be a memory point,” said Allen. “Visitors also will remember the wine pantry, with its floor-to-ceiling wine racks, and the meticulous repetition of arches, which frame the views and adjoining rooms from one end of the home to the other.”
The Eloro’s open floor plan combines the kitchen with an oversized great room that easily accommodates seating and dining areas. Volume ceilings heighten the openness, Allen said. The kitchen offers a freestanding island/breakfast bar with dishwasher and double sinks and will have granite countertops, a wood floor, white cabinets and bright aqua beadboard ceiling details.
The Eloro’s design places the master suite in a secluded wing with bathroom and dual-entry walk-in closet connected to the bedroom by a hallway with doors leading out to the pool courtyard.
Tangerine art and accessories will provide punctuation points in the black and white master bath, which has his-and-her vanities, a private water closet, separate shower and freestanding tub. Allen will accent the tub, positioned in a bay window, with beadboard and polished chrome. The floor’s black and white pinwheel pattern completes the design.
The Eloro also has a powder bath, and the model is being built with a study, a third bedroom and additional full bath.
The home’s outdoor al fresco areas include a covered outdoor living/dining area with a summer kitchen and entry, central and pool courtyards – all connected to interior spaces.
A wall of sliding glass doors in the great room showcases the pool and spa, both accented with aqua waterline glass tiles, and the villa’s lakefront setting at Mediterra, the 1,700-acre luxury golf and beach club community in Naples.
The Eloro has 4,031 total square feet, including a two-car garage and covered outdoor areas.
The model is expected to be completed later this month and priced at $1,693,000, fully furnished.
