Along with skilled artisans and her client’s vision, Sonia Longchamp, Sklar’s Design Director transformed a 2,100 sq ft, 4 BR 3-1/2 Bath typical “vanilla/cookie cutter” builder home into a visit to the Italian countryside. This Tuscan Villa invites you to come inside and enjoy la dolce vita.
The well-appointed kitchen is spacious with the warm wood cabinets and stone walls for the cooking of wonderful meals, and the company of family and good friends who will gather around to enjoy the fruit of the vine and engage in discussions of memories and dreams.
The dining area is where the matriarch of the gathering will encourage everyone… “Mangia! Mangia!” as the plates are passed around this beautiful wood and rustic extension dining table. The aroma and laughter fill the air.
As the hostess leads her following up the elegant staircase and provides a tour of her home, pointing out the intricate custom faux stone moldings, faux paintings, metalwork and brickwork, the gentlemen relax in the comfort of custom chairs and sofas in the Living Room, surrounded by beautiful luscious Italian velvet puddled draperies, and enjoy the camaraderie among men.
When the evening is done and the guests are gone, the bedroom slider is opened to bring in the ocean breezes and sweet smell of the orange blossoms…in Toscana? No…in Florida.
