WRIGHT HOUSE – Plantation
When Julie first entered the house, she looked up at the flying ceiling, interlaced with mellow-wood beams and rafters, and said, “This is it.” Meanwhile Tim was looking out at the boardwalk, dock, and sunrise-sunset vista, thinking, “This is it.” The home is now fully their own through transitional style and renovation (a claustrophobic stairwell opened for art and light). Julie was adamant: “The interior shouldn’t stop the eye. Look out. That’s why we’re here. ” Taupe, olive, and smoky blue, along with a light gray kitchen, welcome but don’t overwhelm. Yet everywhere are great touches in mirrors, hardware, lighting, fireplace (travertine), and simply elegant furniture. Substantial materials—metals, woods, an amazing limestone table—anchor the soaring ceiling (also spectacular from the upper landing). Outside on screened and open decks (“why we’re here“) the home’s comfort and style continue. This is it, indeed.
