Beach House Retreat
This spectacular modern beach house was designed as a gathering place for a very large family residing in different parts of the country. The project was new construction and all furniture and accessories were purchased for this project.
The stunning architecture is very modern and quite sculptural. We wanted the contemporary furnishings to create a relaxed setting for holiday and family entertaining. We did want to maintain a certain level of formality at the clients’ request.
“The stunning architecture is very modern and quite sculptural.”
The beautifully designed home creates the perfect backdrop in each room. We chose oyster white plaster walls throughout the villa. All of the floors are high polished shell color marble that are cool to the touch and easy to maintain.
Large sliding glass panels open to let ocean breezes in. Ceiling treatments are hand woven raffia set into cream color wood beams. Dark stained doors with inset raffia panels are throughout the home and that detail is carried out on all the cabinets in the kitchen, bathrooms, and all closets.
Custom inset mother of pearl mosaic tile panels are set into various alcoves as a focal point. Specialty lighting was placed to enhance the architecture as well as the various modern beach house interiors in the home.
We designed several seating groups in the very large living room including an area that has a pair of game tables. Large comfortable seating pieces upholstered in cream, beige, taupe, and seaglass. Cocktail tables, accent tables , and consoles are in various textures of wood, stone, rattan, raffia, and ceramic. Their styles evoke subtle contemporary overtones of Asian and African influences, which are favorite family vacation spots.
The dining room is specially designed with two large square tables that can be kept apart or put together to seat a total of sixteen.
The large six bedrooms are done in the style of distinct hotel suites with adjoining bathrooms and large furnished private balconies for dining or sun bathing.
In this home, the outdoor seating areas by the pool and large outdoor kitchen, covered outdoor living and dining room are equally important. Fabrics chosen are in bright white and vivid orange.
The setting of this home, along with the architecture and carefully chosen furnishings create a specific mood that truly make it a home away from home that these clients will enjoy for many years.
