NAPLES, Fla. (April 1, 2014) – London Bay Homes’ Delfina, the newest single-family estate model home at Mediterra, features interiors by Jennifer Stevens, one of the award-winning professionals at Romanza Interior Design.
The four-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath Delfina offers formal dining and living rooms, a study, living room, game room and a large outdoor living area, covered verandah and fully equipped summer kitchen within 5,943 total square feet.
“The Delfina was designed to capture the imagination from the moment you approach the home,” said Mark Wilson, president and CEO of London Bay Homes. “We’ve quite intentionally added a number of details that enhance the presentation from the moment of entry and continuing throughout the home.”
London Bay Homes’ signature attention to detail, coupled with Stevens’ fresh interior design, combine to showcase the versatility and livability of the Delfina floor plan, available with a variety of options.
Romanza’s transitional design theme emphasizes clean-lined furniture with wood, stone, metal and glass finishes, with a light, neutral palette as a canvas for touches of color used throughout the home in accent pillows, window treatments and upholstery.
Dashes of blue and citrus against soft whites, a dining room spun with gold accents, and a TV that pops up from custom cabinetry are among the compelling design elements.
The predominate whites in the living room, kitchen and game room visually expand and connect each room. Vibrant citrus colors unify the beamed surface of the kitchen and living room ceilings, the game room walls, and on pillows paired with blue on a neutral sofa.
Unique architectural and design accents add warmth throughout the home, including tumbled walnut travertine flooring set in an ashlar pattern in main living areas; grayed wood floors in the study, cabana guest room and game room; and volume ceilings accented with crown molding and crisp, painted beams.
The dining room, introduced from the foyer, mixes wood tones and accents of gold in the scrollwork design of the twin chandeliers, place settings atop the rectangular wood table, in the latticework backs of host chairs, and in the scroll overlays on a buffet’s mirrored doors.
The kitchen’s low-sheen arctic white cabinetry features raised paneled doors, display glass shelves and crown molding; the look is complemented by golden jade leather granite countertops and mosaic glass backsplashes. The room has a walk-in pantry and a free-standing island illuminated by a trio of glass pendants.
White slipcovered chairs in the adjoining nook circle a round table with a glass top and wire metal base. The breakfast area overlooks the pool and lake from a bay window, which is adjacent to the living room’s zero-corner pocketing doors framed by blue patterned window treatments.
As an option with the Delfina floor plan, a game room was added to expand family gathering spaces. The room features an oversized wall-mounted TV, pool table and comfortable lounge seating.
The study, master suite and guest wing were designed for privacy. Double doors open into the study, which incorporates wainscot paneling all under texture and a deep tray ceiling with multiple levels of crown molding.
Touches of gray, shimmering accents and bold statements in citrus offset the crisp white of the master bedroom. Linen lamp shades, nightstands, dresser and bedding are soft white with pewter accents. The bed skirt, chaise and an oversized pillow are citrus. Scrollwork also reappears in gray, which embellishes the window treatments and the upholstery of a bench at the foot of the bed.
The suite also offers his-and-her closets and a master bath with stone-colored glazed vanities, Calcutta gold marble countertops and marble tile flooring installed on a 45-degree angle, playing up its brushstroke veins of gray. Marble tile is also used in the shower, accented with mixed mosaic glass listellos.
The bathroom also has brushed nickel-framed mirrors and a freestanding white tub positioned below a trio of plantation shuttered windows.
Designed as a secluded cabana retreat, the model’s main guest room features a pitched ceiling, two closets and a gray wood floor. Its bathroom’s maple vanity has a toffee stain and honed Saturnia countertops. Real pebbles accent the shower floor.
A second guest room plays up the white and citrus combination, contrasting the bold wall color with white linens, furniture and a mirror-accented desk. Gray tones are introduced in bedding and the twin upholstered headboards with nail-head details.
The third bedroom pairs grays with browns and dark wood tones.
Each guest room has a private full bath with vanity finishes and mosaic glass tiles reflecting the room’s color scheme.
The fully furnished model home, located in Mediterra’s Serata neighborhood, is priced at $2,439,070.
