Lush vegetation frames the gleaming white exterior of this British Colonial masterpiece, setting the stage for this stunning tropical home. Inside, a high-ceiling foyer accented by extensive tone-on-tone millwork creates a dramatic, sophisticated entrance. 

Rich, dark woods offset by delicate blue and yellow tones and pale walls create a modern reinterpretation of a formal parlor on the first floor. Windows with floral draperies frame the fireplace, creating a beautiful focal point visible from the foyer.

In the kitchen, white paneled cabinetry echo the walls of the main foyer, and provide a crisp, clean backdrop for rich green quartz counters and the colorful, hand-painted backsplash. 

Blue and white chevron upholstered Queen Anne chairs are set around a dark wood formal dining table. Overhead, a Murano glass chandelier has been added as a beautiful, whimsical conversation piece.

Dominant white and blue color combination in this room keeps it light and elegant, and is contrasted with rich dark furnishings and floors. The pale yellow area rug enhances the ethereal airiness of the room. Of course, nothing speaks more to a classic British Colonial bedroom than the stately four-poster mahogany bed that anchors the space.

Feminine and masculine are perfectly balanced in the master bathroom as the lightness of a white Calcutta marble background contrasts perfectly with the rich mahogany millwork and cabinetry.
