Superyacht Society Nominee Finalist; 2005 NW Design Awards First
Excerpt from Yachts International Magazine; by Neil Rabinowitz-
Scott Cole of Ardeo Design styled and refined the layout of what
was originally a Ward Setzer interior- Ardeo was brought in to address
and conceptualize new designs with the owners. “The full-beam
on-deck master suite, skylounge and pilothouse were the owner’s
priority, and for the rest he deferred to his wife the interior décor
choices”, said Cole.
The interior woodwork is neo-classic, satin-finished mahogany with
substantially scaled crown mouldings and fluted columns. This ornate
look features loose furniture, wall sconces, alabaster overheads
with cover lighting and a warm ambiance with an opulent and rich
feel. The saloon and dining room are formal with symmetrical cabinetry,
display cases lit from above and thematic oval overhead fixtures
with gold leaf backing. The adjacent main entryway has a marble sole
leading to the curved, cascading stairway with ironwork detailing.
Double French doors with beveled glass lead forward to a sprawling
master office suite with floor to ceiling bookcase, massive desk
and twin port and starboard heads with skylights and elliptical moulding
with painted sinks. The galley is fitted with a lighter sapele and
granite counters, and bar stools face outboard for socializing in
an area that offers intimate on-board surroundings with a view out
the port windows.
