1. DuVäl Reynolds of DuVäl Design:

Immersed in a custom ombre sunset, “A Gentleman’s Affair with Sunset Tea” transforms into an elegant sanctuary, inspired by the world of tea and the quest for tranquility. Adorned in bespoke wallpaper, the walls envelop the room in hues reminiscent of a sun-kissed farewell. Primestones’ Ijen Blue Quartzite takes center stage, radiating beauty and grounding the space in natural allure. Meticulously crafted, the stone is complemented by cabinetry and a home bar in a harmonious pink palette. The curated lighting casts a gentle glow across the room, harmonizing with deep blue fabrics, creating a sumptuous haven for all who step into the dreamlike escape.

In referencing the design inspiration for his room, Reynolds notes, “Ours is a room that whispers tales of soul-searching, contentment, and the beauty found in the art of getting away from it all.” This sanctuary truly orchestrates a symphony of elements, each detail meticulously selected to evoke profound serenity and joy in this cocoon of elegance and sophistication.

2. Jim Dove of Jim Dove Designs:

Jim Dove Design orchestrates a culinary oasis, where the kitchen transforms into a Palm Beach celebration. The delicate pinks, drawn from the ethereal beauty of the Crystal Rose Quartzite gracing a bespoke console, imbue the space with a poetic zest for the good life. 

“In this kitchen, I aimed to capture the spirit of Palm Beach living—a harmonious blend of color, elegance, and culinary enchantment,” says Jim Dove.

Imagine palm tree murals cascading down the walls, each leaf painted with the sun-kissed hues of the locale, breathing life into the room. The cabinetry, a masterpiece of elegance handcrafted by Dove’s team, whispers sophistication and culinary enchantment. Custom elements, local artistry, and treasures from Casa Branca, Casa Gusto, and Hive weave a vibrant tapestry of hospitality, creating a Palm Beach sanctuary where every detail dances in harmonious celebration.

3. Chloe Warner of Redmond Aldrich Design:

Primestones became the cornerstone of Redmond Aldrich’s design narrative, providing the perfect canvas for his artistic expression at the Kips Bay Design House.

Redmond Aldrich’s Chloe Warner conjures a Palm Beach reverie in the sweeping redesign of the home’s pool loggia. Guided by the spirit of Aldrich’s grandmother—captivated by Palm Beach, chintz, and card games—the outdoor space unfolds as a vibrant canvas.

Immerse yourself in this al-fresco haven where the giant white box is transformed into a whimsical escape. Tenting from ceiling to floor introduces a touch of charm, with Peony Chintz fabric covering the walls and trim adorned in the soothing hue of Benjamin Moore’s Weeping Willow. Primestones’ Aalborg quartzite, honed to a matte finish, on the fireplace and bar becomes the pièce de résistance, elevating the design with its understated elegance.

Against this backdrop, a breezy interplay of textures unfolds. Cozy sofas, draped in terracotta Perennials fabric, stand resilient against wet swimsuits and wine spills. Brown Jordan outdoor umbrellas, chaises, and lounge chairs punctuate the Palm Beach oasis, creating an enchanting tableau that marries tradition with a contemporary embrace of leisure and luxury.

4. Sara McCann of McCann Design Group:

Known for her innovative and contemporary designs, Sara McCann embraces Primestones’ exceptional collection to craft a space that seamlessly marries modernity with the timeless beauty of natural stone.

Sara McCann, the creative force behind McCann Design Group/Hive, orchestrates an opulent reverie in “Le Tropical,” a transformed family room. The wrap-around bar, adorned in Primestones’ Abruzzo Crystal Quartzite, emerges as a luminous centerpiece. Its natural green and tan elements, akin to lush landscapes, weave seamlessly into the design—a verdant tapestry where opulence meets coastal allure and Parisian maximalism.

This stone, a celestial convergence of beauty and functionality, breathes life into the space. In McCann’s vision, “Le Tropical” becomes an immersive escape, inviting you to indulge in the opulence of a multisensory sanctuary.

5. Betsy Wentz of Betsy Wentz Interior Design:

Betsy Wentz worked her transformative magic on the second floor’s hall, fashioning a vibrant parlor perfect for leisurely moments with friends. Embracing Palm Beach’s colorful vibe, she indulged in a lavender and floral palette, creating an inviting oasis. Gone is the notion of a mere pass-through; Wentz establishes the space as a bona fide destination. “The Parlour” is an energetic space, complete with a seating area, dining area, and custom bar.

The custom bar and banquette, featuring Primestones’ captivating Cristallo Turquoise Quartzite beckons passers-by to linger for a while. With an enticing sea green and yellow palette enhanced by intricate veining throughout its surface, the Cristallo Turquoise Quartzite is naturally a stand-out piece of art within the room. Wentz’s fearless use of bold patterns and incorporation of vibrant colors stands as a testament to her design philosophy to craft “happy spaces.”

“I love the idea that you can make a drink, sit, and hang out here,” says Wentz. Betsy’s unique design style makes for a fun, fresh, and welcoming addition to the Kips Bay Design House 2024.

6. Helen Bergin of Helen Bergin Interiors

Helen Bergin conjures a coastal reverie in her cabana bathroom. Aqualille’s tidal embrace wraps the space, whisking guests into the allure of an Atlantic escape. Bergin’s penchant for treasures unfolds—a Thibaut bouclé settee and delicate coral appliqués, each echoing the ebb and flow of oceanic charm. The floor dances in ivory and umber-hued stone tiles, forming a mosaic that mirrors the sun-kissed shore.

The shower unveils a grand spectacle, where book-matched Calacatta Picasso (Leathered) Marble from Primestones cascades down the back wall, seamlessly melding with the room’s color symphony. The sculptural custom sink, hexagonal tiles, and a delicate ceramic chandelier weave together a tale of opulence, inviting guests to enjoy ultimate serenity in this underwater sanctuary.

7. Cindy Rinfret and Taylor Stebbins of Rinfret LTD:

Rinfret Limited unveils the “Seashell Sanctuary at Vizcaya,” a haven inspired by a fascination with shell work, ignited while crafting Tommy Hilfiger’s Ocean Avenue abode. A pilgrimage to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami sparked this bedroom suite’s conception, resulting in an understated masterpiece. The console table, adorned in Primestones Lausanne Blue Extra Marble, emerges as a captivating focal point. Its delicate veining, reminiscent of the ripples of the ocean floor, breathes life into the surface, creating an enchanting dance of natural patterns.

Each intricate line on the marble tells a story, adding depth and allure to the bedroom suite. The marble’s unique character becomes a testament to the artistry found in nature and Rinfret’s keen eye for design.

Rinfret’s design philosophy emphasizes artisanship and intricate details, steering away from overt statements. The bed showcases local artist Robin Grubman’s shellwork on the canopy, while raffia embroidery cascades like a gentle waterfall. Ethereal linen bed hangings and a de Gournay-dressed sofa, adorned with supple velvet Zoffany fabric pillows, weave together a tale of serenity and exquisite artistry.
