Dark colors, ornate embellishments, and wrought iron accents once defined the interior design of a family's Westshore area home. Although the location was ideal, the formal and heavy Mediterranean-style decor didn't resonate with their taste. With the help of interior design professional Enrique Crespo, the 5,915-square-foot space has undergone a remarkable transformation. The outcome is an elegant, light-filled, and coastal-inspired environment.

A Fresh Perspective

The Mediterranean-style finishes gave way to a more modern and soothing aesthetic. The new design embraces a coastal charm that creates a sense of serenity. Enrique Crespo, principal interior designer at Crespo Design Group, collaborated closely with the owners to create a space that reflects their tastes and lifestyle.

A Harmonious Blend

The interior walls now boast a delightful combination of white with a subtle grey tint. Brightly colored tiles have been replaced with oil-finished, French white oak, creating a natural and organic look. Elaborate carvings were swapped for simpler, yet striking, cast stone mantles. The overall design emphasizes neutral shades that seamlessly blend with light upholstery, cabinets, and countertops.

Textures found in rice paper wallpaper and the leather-finished marble kitchen island add thoughtful details. The artworks on display now harmonize and shine against the backdrop of the white walls. The result is a space that exudes tranquility and echoes the calming atmosphere of a high-end spa and coastal living.

Beyond Aesthetics

In addition to the visual enhancements, some structural modifications were made. An enclosed shower in the master bathroom was transformed with two clear glass walls, creating a more spacious and inviting feel. These changes, both big and small, have turned the house into a tailored and comfortable home that perfectly suits the family's needs.

The Final Touches

Before-After

With a keen understanding of the family's preferences from their previous collaboration, Enrique Crespo incorporated similar colors, but with a fresh twist. The extensive renovations have breathed new life into the home, creating an atmosphere of tranquility and coastal charm.

As you can see from the "before" and "after" images, the transformation is truly remarkable. The changes made go beyond aesthetics, reflecting a deep understanding of the family's desire for a more personalized and inviting environment.

The successful collaboration between the homeowners and the talented interior designer has resulted in a space that brings joy and relaxation to all who enter.
