Interpreting a grand-scaled, modernized version of a true Florida cottage inside and out required
the skills of the dynamic interior design duo of William DIAMOND and Anthony BARATTA, and the renowned architectural team of randall stofft with John Cooney. To this end, the home features expanse glass and an exterior palette that references Old Florida, while a signature interior turquoise, chartreuse and white color scheme resonates throughout.
