“The building spoke to me,” Kevin Gray said about the 1979 building where he purchased a condo in one of Miami’s most iconic waterfront buildings, and then gutted it to open the space to capture spectacular views throughout. Inspired by the architecture and objects of the 70’s, Kevin transformed his personal residence.
Tropic Florida Living and Design magazine featured the redesign of his private residence located at Palm Bay Towers. Drawing from his collection of KGD custom designed furniture and influence of his 1970 vintage pieces, Gray’s condo is one of Miami’s most iconic waterfront buildings and a masterpiece of what he describes as “eclectic modern,” said Tropic Magazine reporter Jillian Whitaker.
“Designer Kevin Gray looks to the objects and architects of the past century to illustrate timeless design in his Miami residence.”
“I always knew the 70s were going to come back with a vengeance,” Kevin says of his collection of vintage accessories and furniture.
Structural columns were clad in a gray limestone grid. The kitchen was reconfigured and opened to accommodate access to both terraces on opposite ends for entertaining.
Within the living area, French and Chinese antiques flank a KGD custom, 18-foot, tufted sofa; sleek, polished concrete floors contrast with the KGD custom, hand-blown sconces and Murano glass chandelier. Spy-worthy drama is provided by glass partitions that open the master bedroom and bath – with floating tub – to city and water views.
“Gray has deftly mixed these pieces with items from different eras and origins to create a style that is classic and timeless, but never old fashioned.”
When Kevin can’t find the perfect piece for a room, he designs it.
