House Tour: Naples, Florida Vacation Home

living room with wood beams - Naples

With Daylight Savings Time right around the corner

and Spring Break dangerously, wonderfully close, we can’t help but get a little touch of spring fever.

 bamboo chairs

What better place to visit (even if it’s only on our computers!) for a little spring dreaming than Naples, Florida.

living room with desk

This gorgeous Naples vacation home is sophisticated and chic, the kind of place where you could live all year round, not just vacation.

dining room

Is it any surprise that one of our favorite designers, Summer Thornton, designed this stunner?

kitchen

A sleek and elegant kitchen with all the right details is a perfect spot for entertaining. (Because, try as we might, they’re never going to leave our kitchens!)

living room

This color palette feels cozy and warm–and different from anything else we’re seeing right now. We love it!

This piece is so perfect for those spaces where something with a back would feel too closed. Plus, it’s comfy extra seating!

bedroom with 4 poster bed

Each room is a little different from the last but the unifying themes in this home–like the color palette–makes it cohesive.

light wood paneling in bedroom

Wood paneling gives a nod to the beach nearby.

canopy bed

This canopy bed is so elegant. This bedroom feels like a getaway!

blue and white porcelain

This gallery wall proves that it’s completely possible to do coastal without getting kitschy.

bathroom with porcelain freestanding tub

On vacation or just an ordinary day, this tub would feel like a vacation any time!

bathroom Naples

Because bathroom storage is always at a premium, we’re loving how these baskets not only take advantage of extra space but also add texture.

bedroom

A settee at the end of a bed is so sweet. And there’s enough seating to have a party in this room!

blue and white tile in outdoor kitchen
Architectural Photography

Florida should be fun! And this porch knows it. The blue and white tiles add a touch of whimsy.

porch with dining table

A pretty pool and lush landscaping lend a view worth coming back to. 

patio with chaise

From the kitchen to the bedrooms to the patio, blue and white porcelain is a unifying theme of this beautiful Naples getaway. If this beautiful coastal getaway doesn’t have you Spring dreaming, we don’t know what would! Where’s your favorite spring vacation spot?

Congratulations to Colette Darling, the winner of the $200 Framebridge Gift Card Giveaway! Stay tuned for our next fun giveaway.

In Good Taste: Summer Thornton Interior Design

Summer Thornton

Last week, we had the best time touring one of the most incredible dental offices (that did not look like a dental office at all) designed by Summer Thornton. 

This week, we’re going outside the office and checking out Summer’s good taste inside the home. 

One of our favorite things about Summer’s designs is her use of color. 

Each room feels fresh, light, bright and never overdone. We love yellow! And we really love a chaise. So the combination of the two couldn’t be better.

This is an example of how a statement light fixture can totally transform a room. 

The color of this bar cart is phenomenal. All of the touches in this room are totally luxurious.

This is black and white done right. Summer transformed this nook into a destination.

A gold fume hood? Yes please!

Who thinks of a stairwell as a fun cheery spot you don’t want to leave? We sure don’t! But this stairwell is that and more.

Now, this is a closet! Is there a better combination than hot pink and leopard?

It seems like stunning closets might be a Summer Thornton specialty! 

A luxurious bathroom is such a treat!

What a sweet little girl’s room!

Talk about a nursery that grows as he does! Well, they might have to get him a little bigger car eventually… But, otherwise, it’s perfection! Don’t you love the good taste of Summer Thornton? We knew you would! Thank you so much for making Design Chic a part of your day.
