I don't want to make just tropical house. I want to make everything, just like, whatever I feel like making. -Kygo-

When the homeowner first moved in six–months ago. They found the large house with its soaring a frame ceilings, atrium gardens and open‐plan spaces exciting different from their previous home in a small condominium. It was just right for their family ― which includes two teenage children, two large dogs, and a sizeable art and antique collection ― but rather inefficiently designed for tropical living.

“There are a lot of glass walls. It was as though an oven when we first time moved in here,“ remembers her. The house also backed up against a neighbor‘s fence, so she had ”no sceneries at all.”

“I decided that the solution was to turn the whole house inwards, to create my own views inside the house.“ Vertical blinds installation with contemporary chic mirror surfaces were used to cover all the huge picture windows. And silvered Venetian blinds installation cut down the glare from the sunlit atriums inside a house. A window treatment installation not only disperses the fierce heat but creates visual excitement.

Now, a flick of a wand brings shimmering reflections of the inviting blue pool outside into a living room! When the areas in the indoor garden are in bloom, they also bloom in duplicate in the dining rooms mirror louvered windows opposite. “The reflections appear, disappear, and change shape depending on angle of the louvers and where you stand.“

They moved 4 times in the seven years. Each home has presented its own decorating hurdles, and her, an interior decorator truly passionate about her craft, relishes each challenge. ”You have to start with the house,” says she. “This one is huge and modern, conceived on a grand scale ‥ so I used very luxurious and modern materials. For instance, chick blinds would′ve been all wrong for the mood of this house. The mirror finish on the vertical blinds is perfect.“

The house is designed to an open plan concept, with the living also dining areas. Also atrium gardens and patio areas opening into each other and separated only by floor to ceiling picture windows, French windows, and an occasional glass brick wall. The resulting architecture was breathtaking, but it also created ill—defined ”rooms” and traffic flow; too few walls to display their fascinating art collections; and air conditioning problems.

They decided to seal up the picture window at the end of the foyer to create a soaring picture gallery for her husband`s large collection of Haitian primitive paintings. The entrance hall was sealed off from the living room to create a backdrop for a stunning collection of ancient Indian and Burmese sculpture. “I hate house where you step through the doorway right into a living room. It‵s too abrupt,“ says her.

Now, there is a visual surprise behind each corner. When thou walk into a house, the long hallway leads the eye towards the Haitian art collection on the far wall. At the end of the hallway, a glance to the right gives a tantalizing view first of the living room than the patio and swimming pool outside the tall glass doors. To the left, is an equally inviting vista down the passageway past the cozy dining area and large indoor garden on either side to the kitchen and her office. Where there was once a huge, confusing space broken only by pillars and plate glass, there is now a house with a fluid sense of movement also order. The house now functions smoothly both as an easeful home base for a lovely family and a place for lavish entertaining.
