Murano Portofino

Owners of this two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath residence located in Miami Beach, Florida turned to Raymond Nicolas to create a home that had touches as luxurious as those found in an upscale hotel.

LOCATION Miami Beach, Florida
TYPE Private Residence

To achieve this warm, inviting, and luxe feel, the home was designed to marry traditional and ornate elements with a transitional aesthetic. A four-post mahogany king-size bed in the master bedroom plays off the electric Murano glass chandelier and acrylic and glass Art Deco coffee table and barstools in the eclectically refined living areas. Through layering linens and velvets, the home’s elegance is elevated to a high status.


Throughout, a sophisticated color palette made up of subtle and pronounced beiges, grays, and blacks are used within the materiality to beckon attention. The 100% silk and cedarwood veneer wall coverings from Donghia featured throughout the common spaces and master bedroom plays off the honed crema-marfil marble and rough-hewn wood flooring to add organic yet refined elements in the home.

To allow an abundance of sunlight in and emphasize the home’s impressive water views, glass and mirrored surfaces can be found inside to reflect its surroundings. The residence also dons petrified wood side tables and accessories as a nod to nature found in a high-end environment.
