Check out the designer’s gorgeous Florida getaway.

Landscaping softens the home’s boxy lines.
Previously, the bungalow was gated and walled, but Mauran wanted to create a more welcoming façade. Stately palm trees and lush, cascading vines soften the lines of the home’s boxy architecture and give the entrance a more friendly vibe.
Original terracotta tile floors add character to the renovated kitchen.
The kitchen in designer Sloan Mauran’s Palm Beach retreat was inspired by a modern Belgian aesthetic. The TV is recessed in the wall for a sleek look, and its chunky stone frame mirrors the thick edge on the marble peninsula. The range hood is clad in stainless steel and spans the stoves and work areas for a dramatic effect.
Dining chairs and a settee make for functional and stylish seating.
A glass-topped Parsons table doubles as a breakfast nook and home office. Sophia and her friends often convene here. “I usually have about three or four other children over all the time,” says Mauran.
A black and white palette never goes out of style.
Initially an impulse buy, Mauran calls this stylized ram’s-head dining table her greatest find. The table, comfortable vintage velvet Z chairs and lamps establish an authentic, glam 1970s tone.
Large mirrors reflect light and make a room brighter.
To keep focus on the views, Mauran skipped a mantel and adorned the living room chimney breast with sculptural kudu horns. Mirrors flanking the fireplace mimic the glass doors and reflect the bright light.

The crane artwork and zebra pillows were selected for their complementary hues and exotic feel. An iconic mid-century modern Warren Platner chair was reupholstered in fresh white cotton.
Place X-benches in front of beds for propping suitcases. “The guest rooms are right next to each other with their own ensuite baths. If I’m hosting friends with children, they can stay close together in their own little wing,” says Mauran.<

Grasscloth wallpaper adds a hit of texture.
In Mauran’s bedroom, the palette is soothing, the fabrics are soft, and a low-profile bed looks fresh and contemporary. French doors leading to the loggia and expansive windows make the most of the garden view.
Classic finishes have timeless appeal.
Mauran used similar materials in all the bathrooms for continuity, yet each bathroom has its own look. In the functional guest space, butterfly artwork and plantation shutters lend a beachy feel.
Climbing vines add greenery to a bare façade.
The loggia is a true indoor-outdoor space with an open-air living and dining room — perfect for entertaining.

New landscaping adds interest to the backyard.
One of Mauran’s major moves was having the entire property re-landscaped. These newly-added “floating” stairs add an architectural element to the lush backyard.
