Disney’s Golden Oak Home
Designed by Marc-Michaels Interior Design in Winter Park, Fla., this Walt Disney Resort home is called “Ohana,” which designer Molly Walker says means family, or a close group of friends that resemble family, and it was designed for spending time together.
“The master bath is really unique with the back-to-back vanities and the glass and drapery divider between the bath and the closet,” said designer Jessica Lee.
“The drapery is mounted in a backlit cove ceiling, and it is just sheer enough to allow light to bleed into the spacious dressing and master closet area beyond,” said Walker. “We added clear glass to the design to create the illusion of a floating mirror to give a subtle glimpse of the bathroom beyond.”
“We wanted to highlight the vanities with the flooring by laying out planks of the silk limestone by Ceramic Matrix in a concentric rectangular pattern,” said Lee.

“The banquet seating adds an entertaining element to the kitchen and family room areas by giving a second comfortable seating option for dining or relaxing with friends or family, ” said Walker.

Faucet: Brizo through Ferguson
Sink: Native Trails through Ferguson
“We wanted the kitchen to feel modern but warm, so we mixed the painted and stained slab-front cabinetry to achieve that,” said Lee. “We had an opportunity for wrap-around shelf detail into the butler’s pantry that not only created an exciting feature, but it also gave us the chance to add a colorful glass accent by Alexander Morgan.”
“Being that the wine storage is under the stairs just off of the foyer, it allowed us to create a peek-a-boo window into it from the moment you walk through the door,” said Lee. “We also created a “hidden Mickey” moment in the floor by alternating the direction of the wood in the shape of a Mickey Mouse head.”
“The stairs to the second floor are visible from the wine room and living areas,” added Walker. “This detail created an unexpected architectural moment that also allows natural light to penetrate into the living area.”

The powder bath features stacked stone wall from Realstone Systems through Trinity Surfaces. The pendants are from Arteriors, the faucet is Brizo through Ferguson, and the sink is custom.
Wrapping the wood planks down the wall allowed the design team to not only bring the warmth of the wood into the space, it also provided a means to hide the vent for the grill, which is by Artisan by Alfresco. The dining table is by Restoration Hardware, dining chairs by Kingsley Bate and pendants by Arteriors Home.
