Recently photographed in Florida- Spec House decorated by Lisa Kahn

One of the greatest pleasures of working for talented designers capturing their work is to see what is going on in different parts of America. Lisa Kahn decorated a Spec house by the architects KUKK from Naples, Florida.

Fountain fitted rills line the entry to this bay side house.

The property sits right on a lagoon with a boat birthed up behind it. The house is large and spacious, appropriate for the Florida weather with high ceilings and large roof overhangs. To decorate a house of this size with no incoming furnishings from a client’s previous property takes a lot of everything, from beds and chairs right down to napkins and flatware.

Swimming pool and falling wall fountain abut the exterior kitchen dining area.

Lisa Kahn enjoys working with spec houses because she gets the freedom to do what she wants- as long as it is in the budget. As she has been very successful in this area with spec houses in the past  the developers are confident she will create a great interior. The colors are quiet and harmonious creating a peacefulness in the house.

Beautifully chosen fabrics by Lisa Kahn add to the quiet feeling of the house.

When photographing a house like this, I like to use as much available light as possible, to reveal the house’s design elements.

Natural light pours through the shower stalls into the bathroom. All enclosed with light green tile work.
A guest bedroom on the upper floor has a green color scheme.
Bringing together soft colors of green and blue create a layered feeling.
Kitchen colors come together with marble and ceramic matches.
The high ceilings enable plenty of open space in the kitchen area.
