PROJECT: Located in Naples Florida, this home was a ground-up build in which Summer Thornton was brought in to oversee interior architecture and interior design, choosing finishes, furnishings and decor throughout. Since this was a second home, Summer Thornton Design went as far as buying kitchen essentials and filling the frames with photos so the homeowners could jump right in the pool when they arrived!
INSPIRATION: When you spend most of the year in the midwest, you know the winters are tough but the over-the-top tropical look just wasn't right given the client loves a more refined and elegant look. The design team found a few favorites - Chinese ginger jars, audubon bird prints, and a riot of blue and white coral to serve as the accents to pop from a traditional foundation in her tropical retreat.
THE CLIENT: Hailing from the midwest, the clients wanted a place where their kids (now grown and married) could escape the winters to spend time with family. On the right weekend, you'll find them with as many as four generations under the same roof enjoying one another's company, stories, the fine Naples weather, and of course, the pool!
