F

or New Jersey residents Tom and Barbara Byrne, establishing the ultimate winter retreat was all about creating a communal space that visiting family could enjoy.

“I wanted our home to feel integrated, alive and warm,” Barbara says of the hacienda-style residence they purchased in Hobe Sound, Florida.

To foster that feeling, the couple tapped interior designers Jackie Armour and Marcus Schult who incorporated lively patterns, vibrant colors and worldly pieces that reflect the couple’s passion for travel into the home.

“My mantra is more is more,” Armour explains. “This is them with a Florida twist.”

The dining room’s nature-inspired wall covering, featuring blue, white and coral hues, sets the direction for the entire interior, with the colors reverberating in different combinations throughout the house. “The rooms sort of waterfall into each other,” Schult explains.

“I wanted them to have a little fun with it, and they did a very good job,” Barbara says. “I’m sure we’ll have a lot of friends visiting.”
