Colorful Eclectic Beach House

My client felt her current home didn’t feel like her. She felt it lacked color and interest. Everything was yellow monochromatic.

Her Parents immigrated from Costa Rica, so she wanted to display furniture and sculptures that meant something to her. She loves vibrant colors and asked for patterns that were playful and fun. Her current floor color and window trim color screamed circa 1994. I asked her if she was open to refinishing the floors and trim, adding new lighting, and changing the window treatments. She loved the idea but hesitated to purchase new furniture because these pieces were relatively new. She wanted me to do my best to keep within a budget.

I started the new design centering on this rug, which says it all! This fun and vibrant pattern gives the room the pop it needs.

She and her husband also have many books, but adding bookshelves would have been heavy and interfered with the elegance of the fireplace. We decided to incorporate the books into the design with custom floating shelves. The existing furniture pieces in the living room and dining room were elevated to a new level with just these simple slipcovers.
