At 4452 North Bay Road, one of the most fashionable streets in Miami, there is a villa for which a lot of buyers would sell their own mothers. It belongs to fashion designer Calvin Klein, who has recently decided to sell his luxurious villa in Miami for 16 million dollars. A steep amount of money indeed, but you can rest assured that it’s worth every penny. It is located in the evocative city bay, reason why it offers a unique view on the ocean and the uncontaminated beaches of this little corner of paradise. The villa was built in 1929, but after careful refurbishment it turned into a modern and extremely luxurious property. It includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen, for more than 1500 square meters of floor area. Also the garden is huge, and it hosts a living area surrounded by greenery, an infinity pool and several relax areas in the shadow of tropical trees that are typical of Florida.
All the rooms at Calvin Klein’s villa ooze a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. The credit belongs to the Zen style furniture and to the color palette, which is exclusively made of neutral shades: it goes from white to beige, with some touches of ivory and black. As far as building materials are concerned, wood is the undisputed leader, both in the furniture and in the ceiling beams. The living room is the only exception, where everything is white. The fabric couch and armchairs are pointing towards the French windows, inspired by Japanese design, which frame the luxuriant garden that surrounds the estate. Beyond a majestic arch door there is the Italian style kitchen, where the furniture revolves around an extremely refined contrast between black and white.
The master bedroom is minimalistic, nearly Spartan if you will. This time furniture is purely rustic: the floor is covered in light colored planks, perfectly matching the nightstands and the big retro wardrobe that occupies a whole wall. This room, as well as the others that make up the sleeping area, is provided with an en-suite bathroom. All fixtures have been designed by Axel Vervoordt, who also made several other pieces of furniture in the stylish living area for his friend Calvin Klein.
