This project sits on a penthouse located on the 25-story of a building, designed by Chicago-based architects Solomon Cordwell Buenz, being recognized as Palm Beach’s address du jour. As you take a look into the bedroom you can see a Pierre Frey amazing leaf print that perfectly matches the Florida vibe, along with the whole concept of the home.
Heissmann located a source for terrazzo tiles in a nougat tone that stretches throughout most of the apartment, from the entrance hall and into the master bedroom. This eclectic family room shows some strong vibes from the 60s’, which was a true inspiration for the design of this room. Of course, the designer worked on custom-made seating, inspired by a 1960s original, and the result is quite stunning.
The dining area features a Peter Beard photograph and a bar in the shape of a giraffe. The dining table from the clients’ former house made its way to the apartment, its smoked-glass surface now offset by lean vintage Lucite chairs that Heissmann reupholstered with a mottled bronze-tone fabric. He also made sure to create a wall-mounted credenza with a sea-green exterior.
In the powder room, there’s a vintage bug that completes the shellwork mirror, along with a Voutsa wallpaper. This mirror stands as an amazing masterpiece of craftsmanship, and it is one of the centerpieces of this room, besides the amazingly colorful wallpaper. The marble sink completes this look, and it is absolutely perfect.

For the central living area, the designer placed adjustable de Sede sofas center the living area, along with drip tables by Blackman Cruz.
