The decor in the master bedroom was selected to create a peaceful retreat that highlights the grand ocean views. Cooler tones contribute to the sense of serenity; a silk lilac wallcovering has a faint iridescent effect that changes with the natural light.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, this master bedroom is a true retreat from the hustle and bustle of the homeowner's daily life in New York City. The walls are painted in a light gray, creating a soft backdrop to the gray-and-white color scheme and making the gorgeous view the focal point of the space. The ocean wall art above the bed also displays a beach view.
Carter Design opened up a wall and created a counter to eat at and enjoy the view to exclude the need for a table, as space was limited.
The bleached walnut was a material used on all the cabinetry throughout the condo to bring in an organic wood element that did not overtake the art. Jason Koharik's custom light and the vintage Bertoia chairs add just the right pop.
This lovely living room is accented with soothing tones of blue, including an icy sofa, accent pillows and a painting reminiscent of the sea. Modern accents, such as the angular coffee table and open staircase, balance the room's informal tendencies.
Rich fabrics in the master bedroom make this space a comfortable oasis with a magnificent view. Designers brought a small table into the space that could be easily moved to the private balcony. This gives the homeowners the option for an intimate meal without sacrificing their view or their privacy.
The light sand color of the walls in this beach house warms the space; yet keeps that crisp shoreside feeling. Furniture is minimal and clean-lined, allowing the art in the space -- both the painting and the unique area rug -- to take center stage.
Wanting these stairs to look as bright as possible, the designers painted the walls white to catch the natural light from the windows. Meanwhile, a tall houseplant stretches from floor to ceiling and draws the eye up to a painting of the ocean -- the latter of which is totally fitting for a home in Montecito, Calif.
