T

o complement without competing. That was the objective that designer Celia Cabral Domenech was going for when designing the interiors of a Coral Gables abode for a couple with an extensive collection of artwork.

The challenge, though, was to create a space that looked polished and offered multiple vantage points to view the collection while still making the house feel like a home. To allow the art to do the talking in the spaces rather than the furnishings, Domenech chose a primarily neutral palette, adding in contrast where needed. A 19th-century Persian Serapi rug, for instance, paired with colorful paintings, adds a nice transition from wall to floor.

“Because of the lack of natural light in certain spaces like the great room, I had to be attentive to color composition,” says Domenech.

Texture, too, played an important role in striking a balance, and came in the form of natural materials such as wool, cashmere, velvet, silk and leather.

The resulting design gave the homeowners exactly what they were looking to achieve: a home that is a very deeply personal reflection of its owners.
