The Lutgert Companies Announces Clive Daniel Home Will Be the Exclusive Interior Design Firm for the Villas at the Residences at Mercato

February 5, 2016

Clive Daniel Home has been selected as the exclusive interior design company for the Villas at the Residences at Mercato. Developed by The Lutgert Companies and built by Lutgert Construction, LLC, Residences at Mercato is the most in-demand Naples address. The exclusive enclave features 19 villas, offering two distinctive model options. The Provence model features four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, with 3,118 square feet under air. Clive Daniel Interior Designer Wilfredo Emanuel has created a sophisticated style featuring elegant and luxe accents, with a loft option. “We have used a lot of earth tones and beautiful textures for a light and airy design,” said Emanuel. “There are clean and contemporary lines, with a little touch of a coastal feel.” The outdoor living space has been designed for both relaxation and entertaining. “We’ve created the outdoor area with a spa feel,” Emanuel explained. “It’s very light and will inspire you to meditate.” The cabana addition is the ideal complement to the outdoor kitchen, pool and spa. “The cabana is the party room for everyone in the family,” he said. “It is the perfect area for entertaining, but it’s also very private.” The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Azure model encompasses 2,697 square feet under air. Designed by Clive Daniel’s Jean Losier with transitional and global influences, this villa will also have a cabana option. “The architecture of the Azure lends itself to an open, lofty feel,” said Losier. “The fireplace has been built all the way up to the second story, so we created some floating themes from the second floor ceiling.” The Azure’s gourmet kitchen has been crafted with warm tones that complement the space itself. “We chose lighter painted cabinets with a bit of glazing,” Losier explained. “The cabinet door style is a very clean, craftsman look with some glass elements. We used smoky color glass tile in the backsplash area, which brings out the glazing in the cabinetry.” Outside, the cabana’s architectural details are complemented by cool tones and white drapes. “The flooring is porcelain that is wood-like tile,” said the designer. “It is family friendly, has a sandy feel and looks like wood with its size and texture. This helps transition the indoor and outdoor areas — you just peel back the sliding doors and the two spaces become one.” In addition to the villas, Residences at Mercato features 33 single-family homes, each spaciously designed to emphasize privacy and outdoor living. The development represents what is quickly defining urban living’s next era, refining what comprises luxury and convenience by fusing work, life and play into one location.
