Port Royal is one of the most prestigious communities in the world.

A tranquil area boasting beautiful estates comfortably nestled at the southern end of Naples, the luxurious locale has been called “a showplace of casual elegance.”

Our most recent showcase home in Port Royal, featured in the video above, is this waterfront estate we staged overlooking Champney Bay and its protected preserve.

Champney Bay

Infused with Caribbean flair, the 7,873 square foot property boasts coral stone, beadboard walls, tin ceiling details, walnut and marble floors, artful chandeliers, and its own private boat dock.

Champney Bay

We dressed the home in our signature transitional style, with lush, layered pillows, accessories, florals, and grand art making the space look not just expertly staged, but lovingly designed.

Millionaire's Row Coop

Staging a Millionaire’s Row Coop in New York City

New York’s Fifth Avenue is one of the most expensive and elegant streets in the world.

In the late 19th century, Manhattan’s richest residents built their mansions along the Avenue, looking directly onto Central Park, an oasis of relaxed green amidst the hurry and concrete of the city.

This glamorous stretch was nicknamed “Millionaire’s Row.”

Millionaire's Row Coop

Our latest showcase home in New York is this luxury residence along that historic, exclusive row.

On a high floor in a white glove coop designed by famed architect Rosario Candela, the simplex apartment features large picture windows overlooking both Central Park and the city skyline.

We dressed the home in our signature transitional style, with brass, chrome, and fur accents lending the classical New York space a more contemporary appeal.

Florida Keys Oasis

Staging a 13 Acre Oasis in the Florida Keys

The Florida Keys are a tropical paradise of luxury resorts and world class diving and nightlife.

A favorite vacation destination for celebrities and CEOs, the string of islands also boasts spectacular homes for the lucky few who can afford their upmarket price.

A 13 acre oasis we recently staged in Key Largo is poised to set a record in that regard—Listed for $24.5 million, it’s expected to sell for far more than the current largest home sale, a $13.5 million property purchased in 2015.

Florida Keys Oasis

The contemporary compound on the Overseas Highway is made up of three distinct houses: a sweeping main residence, a freestanding two-bedroom cottage known as the “boat house,” and a one-bedroom guest house.

The property also features two private, white sand beaches at the edge of Florida Bay and acres of lush forest crisscrossed by a maze of walking paths the former owner planted with a variety of orchids.

Building on last year’s success, we designed all the artists’ spaces with their unique style and character in mind, making sure each was comfortable, functional, and beautiful.

Alicia Keys

For the evening’s host, we created a bold, elegant space with extra seating for visitors and guests. A monochrome palette with gold, fur, and geometric accents lent the room an earthy glamour, complementing the R&B icon’s personal aesthetic.

Ariana Grande

We wanted the pop singer’s dressing room to feel girly and flirty, yet still refined. Grey, pink, and cream hues made the space feel feminine while a plush faux fur rug and mirrored coffee tables brought chic elegance to the space.

Zen Housz—Staged and Sold for More Than a Half Million Over Asking

Our latest luxury home staging success story is Zen Housz, an historic modernist treasure that sold in under a month for more than a half million over asking!
