This sunny Mediterranean home is a historic gem in Coral Gables, Florida. Designers worked carefully (and got the architectural board's approval) to bring an updated, more functional design to its kitchen and other rooms.
Following the gravel path leads visitors to the center of the garden, where a pretty parterre waits to be discovered like a precious gem. Carefully arranged topiaries surround the feature and so enhance its elegance.
A mix of antiques and imported gems from around the world brings a sense of modern eclecticism to this living room. A tremendously high ceiling boasts a distressed look that matches the fireplace surround.
