Design Lines – Indoor / Outdoor By Pamela Hughes Sarasota! What better place to let the outdoors in and live in the outdoors! So much of our year has balmy breezes and minimal bug-life that you can spend a great deal of time either in the sun or under cover. Either way there are many ways to enjoy comfort and luxury while enjoying nature’s gifts. One of the ways we like to use the outdoors is an architectural feature often called a “loggia”. This is often a terrace with a roof, sometimes part of the structure of a house, sometimes […]

Design Lines The Sarasota School Of Architecture By Pamela Hughes In our last column, I wrote about Modern Design, so I thought it might be interesting to further the discussion and specifically focus on Sarasota itself and “The Sarasota School”. It is interesting to recall that this “modernism” is now more than 50 years old! While that is certainly true, it is also true that as one drives around Sarasota and occasionally sees these houses and buildings from that time, they retain a freshness and originality that is still stunning and inspiring. In an earlier time, Sarasota was a beautiful, […]

Design Lines – Modern Design By Pamela Hughes There is lots of talk and awareness of “Modern Design” today, so for this month’s column I thought it might be interesting to explore the history of how this design style evolved. Sarasota is a place known for its Modern Design heritage, and in fact, has numerous wonderful examples of this design dialect, which we will delve into in a future column. So, let’s look at a bit of history first. Design is all around us, whether we are aware of it or not.  Any time a human being has applied paint […]

Design Lines – Embellished Surfaces by Pamela Hughes

Design Lines – Embellished Surfaces By Pamela Hughes It is amazing how intertwined art is with design. The two words are almost synonymous. In previous columns, I’ve written about buying art and how to frame it, and we have had numerous columns about various facets of design. In this column, I’d like to write about having art actually created on the surface of our interiors: truly blending art with design. We have long been an admirer and proponent of painted surfaces and have often used artists and craftsmen to embellish limited surfaces of a home. Like most things, if overdone, […]

Design Lines: Houses with Boats By Pamela Hughes What could be more fun than having a house on one of our many beautiful Sarasota waterways and having a boat with the house as well? Well, not much, as long as the house is in Sarasota or some other gorgeous locale. For this month’s column, I thought it would be entertaining to write about a project we are completing in the British West Indies. The project is 19 Deckhouses at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman. These are individual luxury homes with all the services of the nearby Ritz-Carlton. Each home includes an […]

The Architectural Process Continues By Clifford Scholz

The Architectural “Process” Continues…. By Clifford M. Scholz After understanding the client’s desires, goals and dreams, completing the preliminary design work and selecting a contractor to work with is the next step in “The Process”. This is when the “rubber hits the road”, as the talking is over and the actual 3 dimensional concept is born. At this point I have an unformulated approach to laying out the early sketches for the site, floor plan(s) and front and rear renderings. This creative activity is really just me sketching. It is very important at this time to be thinking in 2 and 3 […]

Reaping What We Sow By Tracy Eisnaugle Getting your hands dirty and relying on the earth can be just the inspiration that one needs to realize that with some hard work, patience and a lot of love you too can reap the rewards from your own garden full of fresh fruits and vegetables. Last February I decided to give gardening an honest try. As a certified over-planner and known germaphobe this was going to be a challenge for me, but I knew I had to get over all my internal dilemmas and just dig in. After some late fees on […]
