From the start, a water-hued palette was the immediate vision for this home. In a community adjacent to the Atlantic, the essence of sea and sand were the inspiration. The design needed to facilitate daily living as well as serve as a backdrop for the couple’s entertaining needs. Restraint and editing were the keys to keeping the interiors consistent yet unique from one room to the next. Paneling and raffia wallcovering in the dining room evokes a classic but updated British West Indies element that weaves warmly throughout the house.
