Bay Front Island Town Home
A mature couple found the perfect townhome overlooking the Barnegat Bay Inlet. I was asked to create an elegant yet relaxed setting, ultimately to be a haven on an island off the coast of New Jersey. In combination, modern, traditional and casual furnishings, as well as décor, accomplished a refined nautical motif that is welcoming and serene.
The selection of various patterned fabrics convey the movement of water and wind, bringing in a subtle beach atmosphere. Seaside colors were used to create a true costal experience without creating an expected beach themed home. Elements such as a Purser’s chair at the writing desk bring in an eclectic quality like that of an old captain’s cottage formerly found in many New England costal fishing villages. The very neutral background, with multiple pops of color in the different spaces, brings this retreat to life while keeping the atmosphere soft, relaxed and tranquil. The home was carefully planned to allow for elegant bayside entertaining as well as to create a relaxed couple’s retreat.
