Designer Fernanda Dovigi has created a family-friendly home in Miami that was inviting, exotic, beautiful and most importantly comfortable.
“I love modern architecture and design, but nothing is more important to me than utilizing each space to its best ability and making each room livable, functional, comfortable and useable for all ages,” says the designer.
The couches have custom depth so everyone can lounge; the coffee tables don’t have sharp edges to guarantee safety for children or pets while also softening the space. The rugs, made out of silk and bamboo, are plush and soft on the feet. Bright colours punctuate throughout the house to balance the modern elements surrounding it, like the concrete and steel sliding doors.
One can make a simple coffee in the kitchen and open the sliding door leading to one of the courtyards and have the luxury of enjoying it outside while listening to the birds sing and watching the double coy fishpond in front of you playing and swimming in the water.
The same applies to the living room with oversized furniture to cater to a joyful home. Each room serves a purpose. Take the upper terrace: it’s a perfect place to watch the sunset while lounging and enjoying the company of kins and closed ones.
The furnishings are at the top of their quality. Brands such as Kettal, the outmost luxurious outdoor furniture brand, Henge, Holly Hunt, and Minotti. Highlights include the handmade on paper with charcoal by Roberto Longo located in the front door, and some oil on canvas on a very large scale by Michael Smith and other artists throughout the house.
