Beach House Beautification

A coastal home makeover

With the help of a Boston Interiors Design Associate, one lucky customer was able to beautifully outfit their beach home in plenty of time for summer. The client took advantage of our free in-store design service, offered at all store locations.

The look
The customer opted for a contemporary coastal theme, largely in white, to complement the pristine, richly colored hardwood floors and generous window space overlooking the ocean on the South Shore of Massachusetts.

The living space
The easy-to-care-for Santa Fe Slipcover Sofa was a perfect option for a casual, coastal feel when paired against the gentle distressing of the sustainable mango hardwood coffee table. Slipcover chairs carried over the vibe to an additional seating area.

The entertainment spaces
Where full-on white would have overwhelmed, two-toned pieces—such as the Seabrook end table—offered a warm alternative, as did the juxtaposition of natural side chairs against a white dining table in the eat-in breakfast nook. (For the table, the homeowner had a specific look in mind. Luckily, we have a plethora of bespoke options, so they opted for this beautiful custom table!)

In addition to the two-tone look the use of natural  textures, in place of color, created a layered look.

The work space
The sandalwood finish of the Marlowe Desk emits, in some lights, an oyster-like hue, which makes it perfect for this beachside retreat. Dark bronze cupped hardware sets off the cream slipcover side chair, making it an apt companion to this desk.

The sleeping spaces
Perhaps the most unique and exciting pieces were reserved for the kids rooms: custom painted finish beds in ocean-blue with wave cutouts!

The kids’ furniture steals the show: a custom painted bed with wave cutouts.

The guest bedroom utilized the handwoven abaca of the Catalina Queen Platform bed to mimic sand-like hues, while the long-lasting quality of the solid mahogany and mango frame helped ensure a sound investment.

We’re in supreme envy of the final result: a bright, contemporary beach escape with all the fixings for an easy, breezy summer.
