Bay Harbour Islands Minimalist Escape Nestled Within Lush Palm Trees

Sire Design as Interior Design Studio

Located in Bay Harbour Islands, one of Miami’s prestigious communities, right outside of Miami Beach, lies a beautiful 5,300-square-foot, five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath residence nestled amongst lush green palm trees. Tasked with creating a refined, minimalist home for a growing family, Miami-based Sire Design incorporated monochromatic tones and a simple aesthetic while keeping functionality at the core of the design.

Drawing inspiration from the open and airy architecture, the two-story residence adopted a fairly minimalistic design approach. At first glance, the clean, white exterior presents the Bay Harbour Islands property as a classic coastal home. However, a striped marble slab cascading from the second level down to the driveway cleverly guides one’s gaze from top to bottom and across the residence. Wooden elements applied to the front door and garage opening help soften the space and create a subtle juxtaposition of materials on the exterior.

Upon entering the home, the entryway is fully illuminated for visitors thanks to a striking, custom 40-light black chandelier that suspends from above. Slatted wall detailing beginning at the ground level continues up to the second floor, adding another textural layer to the space while filling the double-height ceiling. On the first floor, an open concept encapsulates the living room, dining room, kitchen, and full bar. Expansive sofas and a double height gas fireplace create a warm environment to unwind and entertain in, while full-sized cabinets and broad countertops in the kitchen provide plenty of space for the homeowners to cook and gather.

Varying patterns and textures featuring a black and white color palette wrap the walls, while subtle pops of muted browns, tans, and pinks add personality to each room. A mix of materials including wood, marble, quartz, porcelain, and glass add movement and more texture throughout, while custom millwork and varied lighting fixtures tie the individual elements together. The bedrooms and nursery follow suit, carrying out the minimalist qualities with layers of texture and muted tones. Visual interest is added through the custom wall coverings and window treatments contrasted with classic furnishings. Other areas found in the residence including a home office and media room/library embrace similar timeless elements, creating a completely cohesive design. The highly detailed lighting package amplifies the residence’s overall glamour through spherical pendants and delicate chandeliers by brands including Vibia, Articolo, and Flos. Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling windows installed in the front and rear allow natural light to flood the home during the day and connect the interiors to its Floridian surroundings. Outside, the homeowners can enjoy a back patio as well as side balconies, both perfect escapes to relax and enjoy the Florida breeze and coastal nature.
