It may be premature to say that Tampa’s burgeoning cityscape is sounding the death knell for suburban allure. However, as Tampa’s skyline soars to new heights, the urban draw of downtown living exerts a much stronger appeal to modern, on-the-go, and energetic bohèmes. 

Debra and Nils Ackerbloom’s condo, at Skypoint Condominiums, connects them to the city’s pulse, offering a convenient lifestyle and built-in luxury, serving as an outlet for high design comparable to any home in the suburbs. Plus, the Ackerblooms get a view. 

In her own abode, the designer seized the opportunity to focus on her favorite design style: French modern. A style characterized by timelessness, curation, and restraint — it’s evident through the incorporation of hallmarks such as aged wood plank flooring arranged in a chevron pattern, fresh, uncluttered white walls, and thoughtfully placed exquisite art.

The home bears her personal touch as well. “I sourced natural stone on countertops and wall cladding, intentionally mixing in modern lighting and furnishings with occasional antique pieces throughout for interest” she explains. “My art, sculpture, and accessories were carefully chosen over time during my travels.”

Ackerbloom’s 1,293-square-foot 2-bedroom 2-bathroom home is an exercise in subtly mixed textures and cohesive tones. “It’s the timeless, interesting, and soothing environment that I envisioned,” the designer shares. 

At la maison de Debra—La vie est belle.
