Private Beach is one of our smaller design projects, but wonderfully rewarding nonetheless. We returned recently to photograph the transformation of the entry, living and dining rooms that overlook a tranquil bay on Cape Cod.
The living room's design was inspired by the abstract sculpture I found at Habité in Los Angeles. Our clients are avid collectors of contemporary art, thus the plan called for a more streamlined take on the classic beach house.
The sculpture is framed by windows looking out to the rock-walled gardens at the front of the house.
The rustic flower planter was sourced at Brimfield.
The interior palette is a crisp combination of fresh whites, coastal grays, darkest blues and walnut. Furniture is sculptural, like the leggy dining room bench that we had upholstered in the softest outdoor fabric I have ever found.
Natural elements mix with textures that range from rough linens to high sheen.
The zinc dining table is topped with a pure white lacquer + glass Oana centerpiece
made in Belgium, sourced at Marc Hall Objekt in the South End.
Even the new ceiling fans were selected for their economy of form.
Kyle's full-room photographs will be published on the Portfolio page soon,
so feel free to stop back for another look.
