At DKOR, our interior design team works on projects big and small: palatial new-builds and…
We don’t knock down walls and install tile for every interior design project. Sometimes we step in to provide the finishing touches on a home, to make it a complete and beautiful space for our clients! One such design project is this gorgeous home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Our design aesthetic was “The Essence of the Crown,” which meant we took our cues from the infamous royal headwear. We used angles, contouring, and a jewel-toned palette to create emphasis and depth, enhancing the home’s already beautiful layout and furniture.
Though this home is a bit more modern than the royal family’s taste, we’d venture a guess that the Duke and Duchess would still give it their seal of approval.
Check out this video of the team on staging day to get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into our decorating projects. Then, dive deeper into this Ft. Lauderdale home’s design as we share the transformation of three rooms below!
The foyer already had great bones: the wallpaper, chandelier, and console table are stunning. So we just needed to add a few elements to make the space really pop.
First things first: We installed a wood accent panel to give the foyer a bit more depth and interest. (Okay, so we did install one thing in this decorating project! But no tile; I promise.)
Then, we layered the console table with citrine-hued flowers from Pottery Barn, an amethyst painting, and a pair of deep sapphire ottomans—lots of jewel hues for a royal look. Finally, a plush rug was a must to complete the space.

Next up in this Ft. Lauderdale decorating project, the dining room. We gave this space a little more TLC by painting and swapping out some furniture. We carried the dark blue wall color from the stairwell into the dining room, so the glass light fixture would pop. We also added floor-to-ceiling window treatments from Zinc Textile for real over-the-top drama.
A new console table provided the perfect place for us to add in jewel-toned accessories and a large-scale painting. Finally, we replaced the single, solitary floor vase with a grouping of slim tables, candles, and an orchid.

In the living room, we honed in on creating focal points. The first focal point, the fireplace. We left the cool concrete wall alone, but swapped out the existing wood shelves for glass versions to make the focal point feel lighter and brighter. Then we propped out the shelves with colorful, yet subtle accents from Z Gallerie and Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.
To complete the space and cement our design aesthetic, we added in new accent furniture. The mirrored end table reflects the ornateness and geometry of a crown, while the deep hue of the upholstered bench lends a regal feel.

Finally, we moved into one of the bedrooms, specifically one for a teen girl. This mostly white space is our best example of how accessories can change the look and feel a room entirely.
Before, the bedroom was boring and lacked personality. But after our interior design team worked their magic, the room shines bright.
We switched up the nightstands (a mismatched, but a coordinating pair), and decorated with accents that added depth. The deep teal hue of the new chair and pillows contrasts the white bedding, while chunky knit blankets and flokati pillows lend much-needed texture to the room.
And there you have it, DKORistas, the power of accessories to change a home from ordinary to marvelous!
