As a continuation of our new mini-series, House Tour, we’re diving into the palatial poolside residence of one of Dwayne Bergmann Interiors’ most fashionable clients. The 5,545 sq. ft. home was originally built in the late 1980s, but the homeowners did not want the typical “Southwest Florida Facelift”. They wanted drama, they wanted glamour, they wanted style. Dwayne delivered with bespoke touches at every turn, runway inspired character, and an easy elegance that complimented the lifestyle of its inhabitants.

When his clients requested New York City style meets Florida luxury, Dwayne rose to the challenge with stylish accents, high impact lighting, and visually stunning architectural details throughout. They wanted a home that felt simultaneously like a luxury retreat and a haven in equal measure. One of the paramount parameters at the direction of the homeowner was “‘if we’re not selling this home and buying an apartment on Madison or Fifth Avenue, we must bring that aesthetic to this home.” Therefore, fashion forward was the mantra. An important element was the outdoor space and pool, which they wanted to feel like an extension of their living space.

Upon crossing the threshold, it’s evident that Dwayne understood the assignment. The homeowner exclaimed that when he stands in the entry foyer of his Dwayne Bergmann–designed home leaves him speechless. “From here, I see the dining room, the great room, the breakfast nook, and the kitchen,” he marvels. “It’s like I’m going to Broadway and seeing all the shows at once. I’m in awe, as every room is special; it’s simply elegant.” From the jewelry-like lighting to the gallery-worthy oversized works of art and sculptural furnishings, the space feels like a high-end hotel, yet remains livable for their lifestyle.

Leaning into his propensity to design with abandon and create custom solutions for his clients, Dwayne says of the project, “I got to dream and create and have zero inhibitions about what we wanted to accomplish.” The spectacularly stylish project was featured in a multi-page spread in the print issue as well as online edition of Florida Design Magazine last spring. They stated, “the home’s interior—with its myriad original elements—is what Bergmann describes as “fashion forward,” reflecting the client’s style and the issues of French and American Vogue and Christian Lacroix patterns that they pored over together during their research.
