This waterfront vacation home is beautifully situated, with its own private beach.
The navy + white palette will keep things feeling crisp and cool on lazy summer days.
Streamlined, sculptural accents add drama and complement the gorgeous views...
Soon, this inlet will be filled with the white sails of moored boats.
Installation team and I finalize exact drapery height at the new area rug's edges.
Rug is Indoor/Outdoor woven rope, which can take a beating from sandy feet and puppy paws.
Vintage lanterns were the wife's gift to the husband, to commemorate the home's purchase. They will feature prominently elsewhere to make way for window treatments. Walnut ceiling fans will replace builder grade models.
Dining table (in foreground) will swap out for a larger pedestal style that seats 8.
The seams lend textural personality to the carpet, which is custom-bordered in vegan leather.
The vendor's handwork is high quality.
The exterior is charming, replete with stone walls and hedges of blue hydrangeas that run the length of the living room.
This one has a commanding view at the family room windows.
Most of the accessorizing will be done on our next trip out.
Platinum + white beach stripe, in the form of another durable indoor/outdoor rug, will layer under the new round table. Draperies will soften windows and art will bring in the colors from the view. Rug tones complement the new chandelier.
Beyond, the entry door is now painted a rich, dark navy called Abyss.
The entry palette is handsome, with darkest blues. Horizontal stripe roman shades dress the windows.
A walnut spool + wicker entry bench will sport dark blue linen on the seat cushion, accented with medallion pillows.
Classic stripe rug will welcome guests at the front door and run up and down the turning staircase.
