Gloria C. Jacob Designs International was recently commissioned to completely redesign the Duke of Windsor Penthouse. This 1,910 square-foot two-bedroom penthouse features a British Colonial style infused with European elegance.
The elevator hallway introduces the polished Gold Jerusalem stone flooring used also inside the unit to achieve continuity. The focal point of the living room is the fireplace with granite appliqué. Comfortable seating, a 42-inch plasma TV above the mantel, wall décor and accessories add the finishing touch including decorative mouldings to the 10-foot ceilings and added lighting in an effort to update every essential element. The outside view is undisturbed by window treatments except for panels in a birds of paradise pattern and opaque solar shades. French doors lead to an open-air veranda with lounges and additional dining seating. Two Italian semi-flush chandeliers, tropical touches and a black baby grand piano add drama to the dining room. The kitchen was completely gutted and transformed into a 21st Century chef’s dream with gleaming green everglades granite countertops and full backsplash, wine cooler, stainless Kitchen-Aid appliances and custom designed cabinetry.
The two bedrooms and baths conveys a sense of tranquility and harmony done in buttercup yellow with soft cream window drapes with blackout lining and sheers, white plantation shutters and soft lighting. The white-tilled baths, vanities with granite countertop are complete with fluffy white towels and robes with Moulton-Brown toiletries. An elegant framed wall mirror over the sink adds a formal touch to the bathrooms. The luxurious pillow-top beds prepared with down comforters, lush pillows and 300 count Egyptian cotton sheets contrast with the deep wood tones. Customer designed walk-in closets with oversized mirrors provide all the comforts of home with a tropical flavor.
Another patio leads to a private verandah offering spectacular views of the brilliant turquoise waters of the Atlantic Ocean and views of Palm Beach. Lounge chairs and chaises with bright cushions shaded by a canopy and curtains amidst large oriental planters holding lush greenery combine beauty with relaxation.
To make this penthouse even more welcome a large walk in pantry with separate laundry room open up off the main hall.
