When our client’s family descends upon their summer home it’s to escape the hectic pace of their busy lifestyle and entertain family and friends. Our design team’s reinvention of their 10,000 square foot home and outdoor spaces was all about laid-back luxury – an inspired mix of classic and modern design elements which show off the stunning ocean views. As we did in the home’s interiors, our objective alfresco was to create a sophisticated yet comfortable oasis – an elevated design experience that brings everything this couple loves into focus. Organic textures, all-weather materials, and a muted sand and sky palette, the cohesive look blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces.
Ocean views take center stage in the main living room where myriad little details compose this space into a welcoming, casually sophisticated retreat.
The dining room/living room combined space emphasizes gathering together and features sophisticated touches from every angle with mother-of-pearl tile around the fireplace and chunky custom chandeliers to anchor each space. Ample, richly textured power recliner chairs (who says they can’t be gorgeous?) ensure everyone is comfortable.
We gave the unused formal dining room new life as a pool hall with a custom-built table.
The powder room gets a playful seaside look with fish scale wainscoting that mirrors the vanity.
Entertaining guests and giving them space to relax on their own was a client focus. A textured bed adds warmth to the room and a quiet reading nook makes the space serene and inviting.
The master bedroom is a fresh, soothing space that sets the tone for the entire home. Here, dramatic oversized sliding doors lead to a resort-worthy backyard and private beach.
In this sunlit bathroom we chose premium natural stone surfaces-like Italian dolomite marble floors–to accent the space. A dreamy freestanding tub beckons with relaxing vibes.
We had the dual dresser vanities custom made – notice the ribbed-fronts and oversized polished nickel hardware. Square sinks on the marble counters offset the peak in the ceiling.
The kids’ bedrooms keep the family retreat theme in focus with whimsical bespoke details such as a fluttering flock of birds and a sunny reading nook.
This guest suite features a separate family room sitting area with enviable ocean views, and a sand and sky palette that blends with the outdoor setting.
Guests are invited to spread out with plenty of sleeping space including this separate kids’ room with two twin beds.
We transformed this once concrete-clad storage room into a relaxing home office suite in darker hues to impart a masculine-meets-seaside.
The office bathroom gets the five-star treatment with backlit features, porcelain walls and flooring. Ambient lighting in the shower niche and ceiling give the mosaic tile feature a sumptuous glow.
The pool house guest suite is ample enough to host an entire family with cleverly placed trundle beds and a curtained-off king bed for the parents.
The self-contained kitchen makes hosting a breeze – stainless steel appliances, professional grill, and a bar with marine-grade vinyl stool cushions.
By the pool, guests can sunbathe, nap in the shade, and enjoy ice-tea on the couch. The living room features a massive stone fireplace and L-shaped sectionals. The family-friendly design features performance fabric throughout.
