Classic Charm
I am a huge fan of simplifying and streamlining, but I didn’t want to strip away all of the existing architectural details because they seemed so right—they’re part of the house’s magic. In fact, I actually added paneling in certain places to reinforce the interplay.

Everything about the house is soft: the colors, the backgrounds, the floors. The billowy fabrics ripple in the wind, mimicking the waves beyond.

I call this a happy house. A wonderful place to unwind. This is a home built for generations. Like so many of my projects, it is a gathering place for families, and each space, both inside and out, provides a purposeful backdrop for laughter and love.
