Master Bedroom Ideas share with you a glamorous Beach Home that was designed to look like a superyacht. Art and international panache combine to make for a world-class second home. Somewhere on the Floridian coast, one sophisticated Palm Beach Home possesses a particularly compelling mise-en-scène: A 6,000-square-foot waterfront location, paired with a façade that recalls an uber-chic superyacht on terra firma.
In the entry, a custom Studio Van den Akker chandelier, surfboard by Andy Warhol purchased through Gagosian Gallery in New York City, vintage aquanaut helmet, bench by Christian Liaigre, and console by Natasha Baradaran for Jean de Merry can all be seen.
“The house is an homage to the wife’s globetrotting grandparents who had planned to build a glamorous home in San Francisco before the outbreak of World War II thwarted their plans,” Beekman says
Dark palm wood was used in the lounge and study for its unusual, alluring grain pattern. “We were really determined to use the same materials over and over again so your eye is tricked,” the homeowner reflects. “We didn’t want it to feel as though we were imposing upon the landscape.”
For consistency, a teak ceiling is omnipresent throughout the common spaces.
“In a sentimental nod to their travel on the famed SS Normandie ocean liner, the house is low-slung on the water. The interior feels like the lounges and staterooms of a superyacht.” In short, this is not your typical Palm Beach Home residence.
In another living area, an antique German pendant from Venfield, Monarchs by Donald Sultan, and throw pillows upholstered in Shockwave fabric by Schumacher and Holland & Sherry can all be seen.
Lithographs by David Hockney and Frank Stella hang in this bedroom. The custom bed in mahogany is by Bernacki & Associates. The brass table with lapis inlay is from Galerie Glustin.
Additionally, everything was designed for comfort and purpose: the rooms for the daughters were neutrally outfitted like hotel suites for out-of-town guests.
