House Calls: A beach vibe for a family of five
September 3, 2014 - table lamp
Mother of 3 Megan Bruno wants a vital room in her Fulton, Md., home to be a cozy, organic space that is unsentimental both for her immature children and for infrequent cocktails with friends. Bruno and her father wish a coastal-inspired demeanour that isn’t over a tip and a seat blueprint that will work in this jammed area between a dining room and foyer.
By picking indoor/outdoor fabric and pointed nautical accessories, engineer twin Shannon Woodward and Danny Christmas assistance a family get a worldly though unsentimental space. Woodward and Christmas, of Interior Magic (301-996-4657, www.interiormagicdesign.com), are formed in Chevy Chase.
Faux coral lamps and beach-inspired artwork supplement a coastal vibe but going overboard.
Indoor/outdoor fabrics are kid-friendly (i.e., easy to clean).
Mismatched finish tables give a room a collected-over-time look. Keep them a same tallness for consistency.
A vast carpet creates a room seem bigger and drift a space.
Blue walls give a room a balmy tinge to compare neutral furniture. Try Benjamin Moore’s Rhine River.
