Before & After - Eclectic Beach House in Jones Beach, NY

Over the past few months, we had the pleasure designing the interiors of a historical house located 2 blocks from the boardwalk in Long Beach, NY. They came to us wanting to fully furnish the first floor giving it a "pottery barn" look, while maintaining the stained wood detailing throughout. Having a vision to incorporate the homeowners funky style and beach color scheme, we got to work bringing the vision to reality. Check out the before & after images.


BEFORE

AFTER
The woodwork throughout the space was recently refurbished by the homeowners. The big challenge was creating a fresh beach look, while maintaining the dark stained wood detailing. By incorporating bright yellows, turquoise blue, and creams, we brought the attention to the pops of colors in order to lighten up the space.




BEFORE

AFTER
We selected unique items to use in the space including a bone inlay chest imported from India, a carved Indonesian statue, and a custom color Octopus from Natural Curiosities.

The woodwork remained the focal point of the staircase, accented with a metal wire "Z" table from Tucker Robbins and abstract artwork.

The layout of the rooms were magnificent, not to mention the 13' ceilings.

AFTER
The homeowners had a great eye for style and purchased 2 of the carved wood chairs for the sitting room. By adding an additional 2 chairs, and a pop of funky Romo fabric, we created a circular seating arrangement focused around the craftsman style fireplace.

Such a great symmetrical vibe centered around the fireplace. My favorite picture!!

To break up the darkness of the original wood paneling, we opted out of paint, and decided to use a grasscloth wallcovering. Since their dining room is used solely for holiday dinners and parties, we chose a more casual seating arrangement including fresh damask fabrics, and a 68" wide upholstered bench, nestled under a white washed Indonesian Table.

AFTER
We designed a custom brass modern console, and matching Palladian Blue top. To finish off the look, rustic antiques, and upholstered ottomans are nestled under.

Finally, the creme de la creme. My clients recently purchased a large pottery barn sofa, to break up the large solid color, we went with a large patterned chevron rug from ABC Carpet, a silver bamboo side chair, and other beachy knick knacks found from antique stores.
