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