While I love the classic blue and white beach house (no surprise there!), it's always fun to help clients do something a bit unique with their oceanfront abodes!
I love the appreciate the challenge of thinking outside of the box when it comes to designing beach houses. While you can't go wrong with a traditional coastal design, bringing in more modern elements and moody color combos makes for a stunning end product!
I'm currently working on details for a Carlton Dunes renovation that perfectly captures the elegant, transitional style of the homeowners. While we still have several decisions to make, I thought it would be fun to share some of the options we're currently mulling over. Which would you select?
The living room in this home definitely steals the show with massive windows overlooking our gorgeous island beaches. This couple wants to update their very traditional library builtins to incorporate a few natural elements and provide a much more modern look overall. The new design started with a layout and the idea to paint the cabinetry instead of completely gutting the unit. We'll finish the new statement piece off with out of the ordinary library lighting. The Liam is always a stunner but we're also considering the longer Barret and Cosmopolitan options.
A beautiful glass table currently takes up residence in the formal dining room. Glass tables play well at the beach - I love the way light bounces from the surface! New (more comfortable) dining chairs have been requested to really spruce this entertaining space up. I can't get enough of the texture in the Amario and Augusta chairs! And while we don't typically associate leather dining chairs with oceanside living, I love the juxtaposition of throwing in a lighter leather into the mix on the Conrad chair. Ps. If you're not crazy about the fabric but love these chairs, I have good news! They're available in tons of fabrics and finishes so we can create exactly what you're looking for.
It's all in the details, isn't it?! I can't wait to see how these simple updates transform the unit into a space the homeowners never want to leave!
