This book focuses on residences owned by a handful of Juan Montoya’s storied clientele that occupy breathtaking sites in Cap Cana, Miami Beach, Punta Mita, and other idyllic oceanfront settings. His portfolio is stunning and this book offers a virtual vacation to upscale tropical luxury homes he has designed. Montoya has a keen sense for incorporating the exteriors with his interiors. His aesthetic is precise, refined, uncluttered, and seductive.
The above home in Capa Cana, Dominican Republic faces the Caribbean Sea. The marble sculpture is by Venezuelan sculptor Francisco Narvaez. Montoya designed the interior as well as the verdant grounds.
This is the master bedroom in the same Capa Cana home. The massive pendant light was made from a Balinese steel sculpture. The headboard is made with an Indian tapestry- set in a blue niche to highlight the tapestry. The ebonized wood doors add scale and elegance to this stunning room.
The above Miami home is my favorite project in this book. The owners were inspired by a hindu temple complex at Angkor Wat in Cambodia. Montoya, along with architects Bruce Brockhouse and Al Naranjo, created the masterpiece. The front door , seen from an angle in the above photo, is a magnificent double-height custom door. The details throughout are sleek, masculine, uncluttered and bold, mixing ancient elements with contemporary elegance.
Another room from the Miami Beach house- every room gets better and better. This chapter alone is worth the purchase of the book. The quality of materials and sourcing (custom Holly Hunt sofa, sculpture from a Parisian gallery, Lelievre fabric pillows, stone colonnades from India, deco style table), balance, precision and thoughtfulness give me utmost respect for Montoya’s talent.
