The Sarasota Chapter of the Interior Design Society challenged its members to take a commercial space at 100 Central Ave. and, in less than four weeks, turn it into a move-in-ready, loft-style live/work space, featuring living and dining rooms, a master suite, art gallery, library and artist’s studio.
Since its inception in 2002, the chapter has raised more than $17,000 for local charities and student scholarships.

Living room: “There’s an eclectic feel of everything — mid-century, recycled, modern contemporary, Danish, mixed granite, marble and wood, and shine, color and texture” — Stan Writesel, Beginning to End Interiors
Master suite: “It’s a pop of color with a Caribbean vibe” — Darian Hoyt Miller, Banana Tree Concierge
Artist’s studio: “The art studio is nature-based with recycled materials, such as Rover, a recycled newspaper dog. Local artist Barbara Gerdeman helped me with props and the faux finish” — Cherie Thurlby, Innovative Design Solutions
Closet: “I had the opportunity to put in a jewelry drawer, hamper and also utilize the corners to maximize space. I added a punch of color with ‘Lime Ricky’ paint” — Bob Barthman, More Space Place
Library: “I started with the tile and worked around it. It’s an inviting, warm and comfortable retreat to relax” — René Nielsen, Interiors by René
