Heavy, rope-tied drapes with tasseled edge create an elegant frame over the entryway to this dresser cubby. Light reflects off the mirror dresser and catches the sheen in the white wallpaper pattern.

A balcony offers a bird's eye view of this traditional great room, where the central dining space flows into the kitchen, living room and sun deck beyond.

The dining room opens to the outdoor space and offers comfortable, lounge-style seating, inviting guests to linger and enjoy the ocean views.
