Kevin would like to say a huge thanks to Hana Dajani for welcoming us to FontanaArte‘s extensive Corporate Exhibition Space on the outskirts of Milan in Corsico. Two grand floors celebrating over 90 years of Lighting, Art, and Design, with a list of talented, internationally renowned Architects and Designers, including Gio Ponti, Gae Aulenti, Pietro Chiesa, Max Ingrand. Definitely, lighting for those who are devoted to authentic design philosophy, well engineered, and timeless design. Their lighting archive is astonishing, bravo FontanaArte!

Kevin is pleased to announce that his Park Grove in Coconut Grove interior design Project has aired on SoFlo Home Project together with his host, the beautiful and multi-talented Alena Capra who is also an established designer and talk show presenter. It’s Kevin’s 7th consecutive year appearing on the program. Together they will show you around the interiors of the Park Grove Tower One that Kevin redesigned, and will be giving away some of his design tips on his inspiration for the layout and color palette of this beautiful floor thru apartment.
FLOS Architectural lighting, Sofa from The Bright Group, D.151 .4 Armchair by Gio Ponti for Molteni
Kevin Gray designed this floor-through apartment at One Park Grove by Pritzker architect Rem Koolhaas. The apartment has 12-foot ceilings facing Coconut Grove’s Marina on Biscayne Bay with sunrises, and the other side has sunsets overlooking the village of Coconut Grove. Kevin Gray Designs appointed FLOS Lighting to work on all new lighting to illuminate the client’s art collection and decorative objects. The first piece we ordered was the custom living room rug inspired by a Viennese gem-encrusted jewelry box that set the stage for the apartment’s furniture, and colorful pallet. Special attention was given to each piece of furniture, fabrics, and antiques, with a mix of vintage and some custom furniture.
The apartment walls were papered with a new Echo wall covering from Holly Hunt, which provided both texture and warmth and helped with sound absorption from the ceiling heights and marble floors throughout.
Tesaurus storage unit from Maxalto, Lotus Table Lamp by Carlo Nason, Rare Tulip Floor Lamp by Angelo
Kevin also visited the Paris Flea Market shopping for our Clients and found a rare Lotus Table Lamp in perfect condition. It was designed in 1966 by Carlo Nason for Mazegga in Murano Glass, Italy. It was a great purchase and we had it shipped by international transportation to Miami along with other vintage pieces for the apartment.
Kitchen’s bronze Venetian wall, FLOS lighting, and floor-to-ceiling pocket door define the room
The center wall facing the entrance hall conceals the kitchen and was painted in bronze Venetian stucco to work with the client’s Trompe L’oeil painting of Venice.
Principle Bedroom over looks Coconut Grove’s Marina on Biscayne Bay
The clients had a French Art Nouveau bedroom set for the principal bedroom and an English antique bed for the guest bedroom, and Kevin designed some custom millwork in both bedrooms. Kevin shopped with the clients in NYC and selected some signature vintage Italian pieces from Donzella, a Borsani 1940s wardrobe for the principal bedroom, and a vintage Art Nouveau style floor lamp by Angelo Lelii for Arreluche for the living room from Donzella NYC.
The Principle Bathroom is personalized using Lilac Venetian Plaster, and an Art Deco Panel.
The kitchen and principal bathroom pocket doors were re-designed with floor-to-ceiling frosted glass pocket doors. The principal bathroom was painted in lilac Venetian plaster and Kevin found a French Art Deco panel in polychrome lacquer with an engraved animated underwater background that was placed over the tub’s mirrored wall, which tied the bathroom’s final color palette together.
Exposed Rem Koolhass Concrete Structural Columns, Free Form Tub, and Anne Sacks turquoise wall tiles
Kevin Gray custom-designed all-new millwork with swing and pocket doors that provided a better flow to the apartment. He also exposed two concrete structural columns inside the apartment by Rem Koolhaas that are visible outside the building and on the terraces. The guest bathroom was gutted and re-designed with a free-form oval tub with an accent wall of hand-glazed turquoise tiles juxtaposed with Rem Koolhaas’s exposed concrete plaster finish column at the entrance to the bathroom. Kevin designed custom-made bathroom vanities for the guest bathroom as well as the powder room.
