Kolter Urban will be delivering oceanfront living like never before at Selene Oceanfront Residences on Fort Lauderdale Beach. Breaking away from conventional norms, the Selene design team embarked on an international quest to curate an exquisite collection of finishes that sets this South Florida address apart from the rest. Selene is truly a destination where meticulous attention to detail meets an unrivaled commitment to luxury.

Unlocking the Essence of International Luxury Design

Selene Oceanfront Residences, soaring above the world-renowned Fort Lauderdale Beach, will epitomize the art of coastal living. To craft an unforgettable living experience, developer Kolter Urban enlisted the talents of Decorators Unlimited, a globally recognized interior design firm. With an extensive portfolio spanning the California coastline, Caribbean islands, Colorado mountains, and more, the Decorators Unlimited team brings a touch of international flair to Selene.

Bob Martin, President and CEO of Decorators Unlimited, expressed his delight, stating, “We are thrilled to lend our expertise to Kolter Urban for their latest community, Selene in Fort Lauderdale. Our team specializes in creating uniquely composed design collections that surpass expectations and stand the test of time. Kolter gave our team a challenge to take the design to the next level.”

Discovering International Tile Treasures

In their relentless pursuit of excellence, Decorators Unlimited, in collaboration with renowned tile experts Universal Tile & Marble, scoured the globe for the most exceptional tile offerings. Their partnership led them to Europe, Italy, and Spain, where they hand-selected captivating large-format porcelain tiles with an elegant white matte finish. The chosen tiles harmonize flawlessly with the natural tones of Selene’s design, ensuring a seamless transition between the awe-inspiring views and the interior ambiance.

Andrew Robins, President of Universal Tile & Marble, expressed his enthusiasm, saying, “We spared no effort in finding options that enhance the overall design aesthetic and create a glare-free environment. During my overseas trip, I discovered these exquisite porcelain tiles that truly captivated our entire team. We can’t wait to witness the final selections come to life at Selene.”

Meticulous Curation of Every Detail

Selene’s architectural plan effortlessly merges the allure of beach life with the convenience of city living. Bob Martin and his team spared no effort in handpicking every element, from the initial floorplan design to the final selection of high-end finishes from the world’s leading luxury brands. They meticulously researched the latest design trends, focusing on the area’s breathtaking views, tranquil decor, and natural color palettes to deliver spaces that embody luxury and sophistication.
As the heart of each residence, the Kitchen offers four exquisite designer finish packages, allowing owners to personalize their living space and showcase their unique tastes. The custom cabinetry, provided by Italkraft, seamlessly blends over 150 years of traditional Italian craftsmanship with the most advanced manufacturing techniques. These cabinets feature a “soft close” system, while the upper cabinets boast built-in LED lighting that illuminates the pure white quartz countertops. Top-of-the-line appliances further enhance the convenience and sophistication of Selene’s residences. The Sub Zero refrigerator, adorned with a sleek stainless trim, offers customizable settings built for decades of dependability. The cooking area showcases a Wolf electric cooking system with an integrated canopy hood, as well as an oven and microwave with gourmet mode settings and dual convection systems, allowing for precise and versatile cooking options. Completing the ensemble is an Asko panel-ready dishwasher, designed to perform sustainably while showcasing an elegant, sleek high-quality steel design.
The Owner’s en suite bathroom, designed to highlight the natural landscape, exudes opulence with porcelain tile flooring. A sense of indulgence is further enhanced by the inclusion of a lavish soaking tub and a separate semi-frameless shower, both crafted by Kohler, a renowned global leader in kitchen and bath design with a rich legacy of over 150 years of craftsmanship and innovation. Premium Grohe fixtures seamlessly combine superior ergonomics with a contemporary aesthetic, including a hand-held spray wand and a refreshing rain head in the shower.
Martin shared his design philosophy, saying, “Selene’s prime location along Fort Lauderdale Beach allows us to highlight the stunning panoramic views. We wanted to create spaces that effortlessly combine timelessness with simplicity, embracing the indoor/outdoor Florida lifestyle.”
