The curved roof of the home was inspired by similar ones the owners spotted on a camping trip to New Zealand. Natural materials and planters blur the line between indoor and outdoor living areas, drawing the tropical backyard into the home.
The green design throughout the home balances sustainability with beauty. For example, in the bathroom, bright chrome fixtures and sleek modern toilets also offer low-flow practicality.
Designer Don Sharp creates an inviting foyer that evokes a dramatic feel as guests enter into the home. It was designed to pull the eye through the home for a glimpse of the pool and outdoor living spaces.
On the exterior, the house's split level design helps visually tie it to its neighbors. The lowest point of one roof meets the neighboring home's roof line. Building over the four car garage and crawl space, the owners maximize storage and workshop space.
The formal dining room off the large foyer sits behind the gourmet kitchen for convenience for entertaining and family gatherings. A stacked stone focal wall is paired with sleek black ceiling beams and soft neutral tile flooring for a contemporary Tuscan-inspired space. A pair of chandeliers sit above the oversized table surrounded by comfy, earthy chairs.
The basement in this Tampa Bay home is the perfect family-friendly game room. The multifunctional space features a comfortable TV-watching spot, a wet bar and pool table. Designer Don Sharp also designed the space to take advantage of the rear views and covered deck.
