The Design Brief

Fashion a posh coastal backdrop for the breathtaking city view.

The Inspiration

By the Sea. A brilliant patterned rug served as a springboard for the color palette in the spacious glass-walled living space. A tailor-made multidirectional sectional sofa artfully joins two seating zones. The custom track-light chandelier – studded with hand blown glass spheres – spans the length of the room, illuminating the fine finishes and aquamarine shades accented with chartreuse. The blues take on gray notes in the bedroom and study, where chocolate paneling, a channeled leather headboard, and lots of millwork strike a serious, masculine tone.
