The Ocean Leads the Way
Designer / Steven G / Interiors by Steven G
As with other rooms in a Fort Lauderdale home, waterfront views can add a dramatic flourish to a dining and entertaining space. Taking advantage of it means designing spaces where the eye is always led towards the water.
Steven G says: “What does the perfect Fort Lauderdale home need? A layout that will allow the views of the city, the ocean or the Intracoastal.”
This bar, custom designed by and fabricated for IBSG, balances out the area and views.
This chandelier by Hubbardton Forge adds the right amount of modern pop.

Contemporary Meets Classic
Designer / Perla Lichi / Perla Lichi Design
An ode to Fort Lauderdale’s famous attribute, the beach, this living area combines coziness with the essentials of this city. The blue tones remind us of the ocean while the white adds contemporary style. The overall tone allows the views to take center stage.
Perla Lichi says: “The perfect Fort Lauderdale home needs a great water view, place for entertaining and a guest room that converts to casual living room (or other usable space) when there are no guests. The ideal Florida home should be designed in the client’s ‘dream home’ style, be it contemporary, classic or somewhere in between.”
These Kravet Fabrics curtains offer the right amount of transparency to showcase the ocean view.
2. LEATHER SOFA
A Natuzzi sectional marries contemporary style with comfort.
This custom-designed Perla Lichi table is subtle yet makes a statement.
4. AREA RUG
To give the overall vibe of a beach theme, Perla Lichi Dubai designed this ocean-inspired area rug.
Elegance and Function

A bright and straightforward home with simple lines can create a pleasing aesthetic. Combine that with top-of-the-line décor tailored to satisfying those contemporary tastes, and you’ve got yourself an easy-living Fort Lauderdale home. According to Kesten, trends and state-of-the-art finishes in wood, metal, stone and fabrics are what keep the design fresh and give spaces panache.
Sheri Kesten says: “Easy living with bright, crisp open spaces and combining form and function with sleek and elegant design.”

A family-oriented home calls for spacious living areas with warm colors and comfortable seating arrangements. In addition, when creating the right atmosphere for entertaining guests, it’s possible to accomplish a lot simply by using the right accents throughout.
Voytek Faber says: “The perfect Fort Lauderdale home must not only be conducive to a relaxed family atmosphere, but also appointed in such a way as to allow for entertaining of family and friends. An open floor layout allows for maximum flexibility for various activities and functions, while seamlessly combining adjoining areas into a harmonious space.”
The sofa serves as an inviting piece and opens up the room.
