The Perfect Blend of Contemporary and Coastal Design

You are here

Most visitors check out our highly informative website to scan through detailed descriptions, vivid images, seasonal rental rates, and calendar dates to plan their next wonderful vacation at the beach. However, it is also fun to view new fashionable trends happening with coastal interior décor and furnishings. The gorgeous properties along the Emerald Coast are a designer’s dream, and many are worthy of feature stories in Southern Living or Coastal Living Magazine. This opulent penthouse at Ariel Dunes is one such residence with the recent completion of some exquisite remodeling.

Before its makeover, this penthouse had a dark, handsome look with casual, traditional furnishings that were tropically inspired. It was quite charming but slightly dated. The new look is light, bright, cosmopolitan, distinctly modern, and features an excellent coastal ambiance.  

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Foyer

A long wide entry hallway features an elegant tufted couch that sits beneath a large school of silver plated fish that seem to be swimming by as you arrive.

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Living Area

This leads into a bright, crisp open living area that is flanked by a double set of glass balcony doors at the far end that provides glistening cruise ship like views of the glorious gulf. The comfortable furnishings and sophisticated decorative art throughout feature a superb type of swank styling.

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Living Room

Cobalt blue abstract prints displaying multiple schools of fish and white dish décor with blue patterned sea life hang from the walls as a vivid accent. Additional stunning accents are provided by vibrant solid sapphire and blue patterned pillows. White tile flooring blends seamlessly with a sleek creamed leather wraparound couch and two modern matching armchairs.

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Sitting Area

On the other side of the room, a separate seating ensemble has a fashionable Mid Century Vintage Modern look.  Four tanned leather bucket chairs assemble around a round glass-topped table beneath a crystal chandelier near the second set of glass balcony doors which accentuates a spacious feel.

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Dining Area

Beside the open kitchen, another white leather wraparound couch and two dove gray armchairs sit beside a pedestal based table providing a place for casually elegant dining.

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Kitchen

The kitchen features state of the art brushed stainless steel appliances, modern cream-colored custom cabinetry, white marble countertops and an entire wall of decorative hardwood tile done in a fanciful zigzag pattern. 

Ariel Dunes Penthouse Hallway

An angled hallway bordered by a white marble-topped bar with seating leads to the handsomely appointed Master Suite and lovely Guest Bedrooms.
