“This construction is all about the bling,” says Ivonne Ronderos of DKOR Interior Design, about the Jade Beach construction. “You walk into the lobby and it’s all Fendi furniture.”

The high rise is at the Sunny Isles beachfront area of Miami. “My customers are a magical, family-oriented couple from Russia who decided to make this their fulltime residence. The husband loves minimal and modern, and cares about having fixtures that are top of the line and will continue forever,” says Ronderos.

“The wife loves rich feel, crystal, patterns like damask … our original layout was very modern and minimal, full of stainless steel and natural materials, but throughout the procedure, she’d whisper in his ear, and before you knew it, there was far more bling incorporated into the design,” she says.

Even though you can observe the compromises made between the two throughout the design, Ronderos and that I laughed and figured out by the end of the interview that the “compromises” looked to have gone into the wife 80 to 90 percent of the time.

This area just past the elevator foyer sets the tone for your entire home. “We couldn’t have done anything less in this area,” says Ronderos. “There was this huge wall, and it needed to announce the apartment in a grand manner. Additionally, it is fun and whimsical.”

An oversize, bird’s eye maple beveled frame encases the entry wall. The recessed, diamond-cut mirror echoes the diamond patterns that continue through the home through the 36-inch by 36-inch diamond Crema Marfil tiles. Ronderos had the console table’s back legs cut off so that it would appear to emerge from the frame.

The device is a decrease penthouse on the 45th floor of this Miami beachfront high rise.

The main portion of the apartment contains the living area, the dining area and the kitchen, which allows them to take advantage of the ocean views. The palette is neutral in order to not detract from the perspective, but it is rich in texture out of Venetian crystal chandeliers, a mirrored coffee table, crocodile armchairs, Crema Marfil floors and damask wall coverings.

“There has been an awkward door from the living area to the master bedroom, therefore the DKOR team created fitting panels using moldings, inset with damask wall coverings to camouflage the doorway,” says Ronderos. “Damask is among their spouse’s favorite routines.”

“We utilized a LusterStone remedy on the walls; it’s just like a Venetian plaster remedy without the shine,” Ronderos says. “This gave them feel and thickness.” Ronderos demarcated the dining room area by setting the table and chairs atop a slab of onyx and by giving the adjoining wall and ceiling a different look. Another crystal chandelier connects the dining room area into the living room area.

The kitchen counters are Compac, a long-lasting synthetic substance. High-gloss stuff on the cabinets and the glass tiles reflect light throughout the space, and don’t distract from the views.

“While you would think this layout is for hosting extravagant parties and entertaining, the major thing the family does is gather together and spend time together. They don’t live a glamorous life; they are extremely family oriented and they eat dinner together every night,” says Ronderos.

You can see more of their husband’s taste in this modern powder room. The very clean lines, the brightly mirror using wall-mounted fixtures and all of the modern plumbing fixtures signify his sensibilities.

The tiles around the commode are crystal, and if you look closely, you can observe that the spouse’s beloved damask made its way to the area in a subtle manner.

From the master bedroom, panels together with wallpapered insets repeat the trick used in the adjoining living area. “This is a great way to anchor the mattress,” says Ronderos. Again, the palette is light and neutral, and it doesn’t distract from the ocean views. Additionally, it is very relaxed and inviting.

“See that modern floor lamp over by the reading chairs? That’s a bit of their husband’s taste,” says Ronderos. “You can see it here and there if you search for it.”

The couple enjoys different bathrooms. This one is hers, however, it reveals some of these compromises made between the couples’ tastes. His design shows up at the very minimalist and modern lines of the dressing table, the trough sink, the commode, the cupboard as well as the stripes. Hers shows up in the form of the glittering damask print glass tile mosaic and the sparkling sconces.

“His toilet only has the stripes, no florals,” says Ronderos.

This bedroom belongs to the couples’ 16-year-old daughter. “My customers wanted to keep the bones of this space minimum, yet to allow their kid bring in her own fashion through impermanent accessories like bedding and art.”

Now, I’ve been in this job for many decades, and I know just what you will say about having a 2-year-old in this kind of home. Please hold your tongues, because you’re right! The family is now searching for a home with a lawn. They did furnish or utilize the balconies, for safety’s sake.
