Soulful energy in a contemporary condo
Written by: Christina Kleiner
Despite being more than two-dozen floors above the ground, Mark McLain’s St. Petersburg condo resides in the heart of it all. His well-appointed modern abode pays tribute to the inspiring views of life outside. “This is why I moved here. It has an energy that can’t be matched,” he says.
Mark spent nearly three years in the two-bedroom, two-bathroom Signature Place condo before he decided it was time to really make it his own. He asked around about design services and was pointed in the direction of Rita Bateman of Home Décor Consulting.
Bateman enlisted the expertise of Becky Cormier, design consultant for Tampa-based Scan Design, to generate ideas and establish an overall theme for the renovation.
“It’s important to get to know a client’s personality and lifestyle, since these are the things I need to take into consideration when designing a home,” Bateman says. “Mark wanted to create a clean, modern interior, with organic pieces and materials that complement the wonderful views.”
