James Aman and John Meeks designed a space where their imagination could spread its wings and fly over the roof. The presence of art furniture and modern sculptures completely reigns in this luxury home and Inspiration and Ideas is about the give you all the inside scoop of this contemporary design.
Over the past decades, the ELLE Decor A-List design duo’s clientele has predominantly consisted of art collectors, including the owners of this Palm Beach vacation house. The Washington, D.C.–based couple, who had hired the duo to design their city house, explained that they were looking for luxurious, timeless interiors in Palm Beach that wouldn’t compete with their Ai Weiwei paintings and Jeff Koons modern art sculpture.
“Our old house was traditional in an old Florida sense, with lots of chintzes. We were ready for something different—an elegant beach house” says the wife, who loves throwing cocktail parties and dinners with her husband, a real estate developer.
Decor that was elegant, while also amenable to colorful abstract works, muddy footprints, and spilled drinks, was a tall order, but one to which the designers happily rose for this luxury home. Following the latest interior design ideas, Aman and Meeks employed their signature restrained, neutrals-oriented palette throughout the home decor.
He and Aman began by creating a better flow in the house’s public spaces. You enter into a foyer gallery facing the expansive living room, with a dining room, kitchen, and family room radiating off to the sides. Serenity reigns in this luxury home due to its calming and soft hues but also due to the artist’s side that the designers picked for this luxury interior. The clients feel at home and eager to come back anytime they leave.
