The owners of this Dutch Colonial home wanted an interior design that was both warm and inviting, while still utilizing the textures of the tropics and acknowledging the European influence on the architecture of the home.
The renovation included a kitchen re-design and the inclusion of extensive paneling and millwork throughout the home, along with interior design elements that include bold color, bold patterns, and a mix of fabrics.
The fabrics and other natural materials used in the design, like caning, bamboo, raffia, and grasscloth. These more traditional materials are paired with polished nickel and lucite details.
The resulting home is a comfortable space where each room flows into one another, but still has a distinct feel.
We hope you enjoy it!
Immediately upon entering, on the right is a Jacqui four-drawer dresser in indigo. The dresser is framed by blue, navy, and white wallpaper. The pulls of the dresser are in gold.
The rug upon entering the foyer is nautical in blue and cream. Stairs lead up to the second floor. Further down the hall is a dresser made of birch wood and bamboo, with a white marble top.
A closer look at the stairs and dresser shows the subtle geometric pattern of the carpet runner and the bamboo trim of the dresser. Wainscoting follows up the slope of the staircase, and along the side behind the dresser.
The home has a primary entryway, separated from the foyer by a door with a seamless glass panel. The door is flanked by two narrow windows.
The formal dining room has a lot of traditional features that are livened up by the bold and unexpected orange zebra patterned curtains. The right side of the table has more traditional, formal dining chairs, while the left has a casual bench. At the head of the table is a cushioned dining chair.
The natural wood table’s rustic charm is enhanced by the smooth, clean lines of the glassware. The table has two centerpieces with white hydrangeas neatly arranged.
The length of the light fixture doesn’t effect the dainty construction of the piece. On the rear wall of the room, near the entrance, is a dark wood buffet table.
The view from the dining room across the foyer leads to the formal living room, used for the majority of entertaining in the home.
The spacious living room is in more subtle colors than the dining room. The blues are more on the muted side in various patterns including stripes and polkadots. The open hearth wood-burning fireplace has a brick hearth and is topped by a wall-mounted television.
A close up of one of the white dressers at the rear of the living room shows the beach accents and muted blue lamp. Behind the dresser is a mirror on the wall, overlapped by a metallic piece of art leaning against the wall.
Orange blankets draped over the chairs bring in the orange from the formal dining room across the hall. The side table and matching boxes on the light wood coffee table are translucent with rustic handles of rope and leather.
Through the glass French doors on the far left of the living room is the less formal den. The light blues, oranges, and indigos from the rest of the home are continued in the den, allowing the home to flow together.
The view of the den from the French doors shows a nautical blue and white rug very similar to the rug in the foyer and orange zebra print throw pillows that match the curtains in the formal dining room.
The navy button-tufted coffee table doubles as an ottoman. Two plush stools in a geometric patterned fabric act as extra seating for company. The television sits on a white entertainment center with nail-head trim.
The den elongates into the informal dining room and kitchen. The floor-to-ceiling windows are covered by airy curtains.
The informal dining table is surrounded by four wicker chairs. The light fixture is similar to the longer version hanging above the formal dining room. The vase of sunflowers matches the one in the entryway.
The view from the kitchen island through to the informal dining table and den.
The U-shaped kitchen in white has matching wicker stools at the kitchen island and a lovely cream tile backsplash.
