(Feb. 28, 2013) – WCI Communities continues its award-winning partnership with Kay Green Design, selecting the Winter Park, Fla. firm to create the interior design for the Agostino, a three-bedroom single-family model home in Venetian Golf & River Club.
The largest of Venetian’s three Classic Homes floor plans, the Agostino has 2,725 square feet of living space, a den and an open design between great room, dining area and kitchen. It has three full baths plus a powder room and offers 4,009 total square feet, including a two-car garage, separate golf cart garage and storage closet/cabana on the screened lanai.
The model’s contrast of light neutral flooring, walls and countertops with dark furnishings and cabinetry will create drama and a modern aesthetic that visitors will remember, according to Kay Green.
“The overall paint is light and soft with added pops of soft greys,” Green said. “The owner’s suite has a black poster headboard set against a deeper blue-grey wall. The artwork on the wall is creams and whites, which creates drama on the focal wall as you enter the bedroom.”
Venetian Golf & River Club is the 1,039-acre master-planned community located along the Myakka River in Venice created by WCI Communities.
Kay Green Design, which has been featured in national publications and industry magazines including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times and House Beautiful Kitchens/Baths, earned 2011 and 2012 interior design awards from the Collier Building Industry Association for its model home designs at WCI’s Manchester Square community in Naples.
The design firm will use a modern, contemporary rectangular tile, arranged in a brick pattern, for the Agostino’s main flooring. Its soft creams and grey tones will create a backdrop for a classic design theme featuring the dark wood-toned furniture mixed with eclectic black and silver pieces and a color palette of grey with crisp whites, navy, aqua and fresh yellow.
The Agostino’s den, designed as a golf retreat for the man of the house and a place to Skype for her, will feature a wooden floor with a smooth espresso finish, a TV and his favorite golf clubs displayed in a wall-mounted rack.
Granite countertops in the kitchen will repeat the cream tones of the model’s main flooring with flecks for greys and black and provide a dramatic contrast to dark java-hued cabinetry with clean, modern lines. The backsplash’s rectangular tiles in a soft gray will enhance the modern aesthetic.
The kitchen also offers a walk-in pantry and a free-standing island/breakfast bar with a double sink and dishwasher.
Tray ceilings above the adjoining great room and dining space will be painted a soft taupe. Sets of sliding glass doors in each room open to the covered lanai.
The same ceiling treatment will be used in the owner’s suite, which offers his and her walk-in closets and a large bathroom with a water closet and separate tub and shower. His and her vanities will feature java-toned cabinetry and granite countertops similar to the kitchen.
The Agostino’s two en suite guest rooms have private full baths and will feature dark java cabinets topped by quartz countertops.
The Agostino is one of nine floor plans offered at Venetian, including carriage homes, Grand Villas and single-family Classic Homes offering three bedrooms and 1,710 to 2,725 square feet of living space.
Venetian Golf & River Club offers an array of amenities, including an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Chip Powell and a 20,000-square-foot Golf Club, where members can enjoy fine and casual dining and a full calendar of events.
The Venetian River Club features dining with a view of the 70-acre Nature Park along the river, as well as a fitness center and aerobics studio, spa rooms, lap pool, resort-style pool with cabana bar and six-court Har-Tru tennis center. The Nature Park includes the River Walk boardwalk and picnic gazebo.
