Lido Beach Resort is a premier luxury destination on Sarasota’s Lido Key. And this lobby renovation brings a fresh, elevated take to the Florida beach experience.
The interior design takes cues from the white sandy beaches, local art community, and relaxed culture of the Gulf coast. The space has a bright, airy feel, with a lofted ceiling of rich reclaimed Hemlock. Crisp, white shiplap walls are complimented by warm sand tones in the wood floor, furnishings, and casework.
Brightly colored beach umbrellas dotting the shoreline provide inspiration for a three-dimensional custom metal sculpture behind the front desk and paintings by a local artist throughout the lobby.
The market is richly layered with materials, patterns, lighting, and lush greenery. Graphic concrete tiles on the floor and colorful handmade Zellige tiles on the walls bring playfulness to the space. The market’s thoughtfully designed custom millwork brings it to life with curated shelves while providing ample storage.
Beyond, the lobby opens to a shaded poolside patio. Intimate lighting and inviting lounge seating create a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces.Photography: Austin Luper
