Coastal Blues – Nest :: SRQ Magazine article by Britt Mattie

Orange Moon Interiors brings a remodeled Longboat Key home with a palette of blues to its marine sanctuary.

Coastal elegance shines through this beachfront Longboat Key condo with custom pieces like warm walnut countertops, white mirrored and paneled walls, built-in glass shelves, ombre-colored fan tiling, and light fixture coral-inspired pendant. “Often people tear out old and outdated features during a renovation, but I’m really glad we gave new life to things like the mirrored wall, as it beautifully reflects the water and light coming from from the beach,” says Kelly Kaiser. , owner and lead designer of Orange Moon Interiors.

The owner, for this complete interior renovation project, called on Kaiser to bring a very specific, “creative and fun” vision to life. And in a world full of trendy minimalist and neutral design spaces today, this client wanted color. “She didn’t let trends define the look of her home, rather she let her own happiness guide her design decisions,” says Kaiser. “She feels happy inside the color and she wanted this space to be her happy place.” A seascape color palette really brings it home for this Gulf abode while accessories say “you’re at the beach,” but “with texture, instead of kitsch,” notes Kaiser. A color expert in her field, choosing that absolutely perfect shade for a color-loving client is paramount, and even more so, finding the right shade of blue for those who reside by the ocean.

Landing on unique shades of blue for this particular client, deep slate wallpaper envelops the master bedroom with a texture that mimics waves while the aqua-azure and turquoise mosaic backsplash tiling in the bathroom suggests scales fish or mermaid. “Ironically, early in the design process, the client really wanted to avoid aqua,” Kaiser shares, “but as the design evolved, we both discovered that when aqua was mixed with space, she really loved it. This blend of blues brings a richness that makes this home so cozy, it hugs you like a warm beach towel.
