Just inside the front door, guests are greeted by an entryway packed with architectural detail, eclectic furnishings and a hint of nautical decor. Heavy iron sconces and caned armchairs pair with a vintage life preserver to create a dynamic juxtaposition that tops off the design.
Navy and White Traditional Bedroom with Orange Accents
Bold colors stand up to the dramatic architectural details in this traditional bedroom, designed for the homeowners' adult son when he comes home to visit. White beadboard on the ceiling is in keeping with the home's coastal design theme, while deep navy brings a nautical element to the space. Orange accents and graphic patterns pop against the room's neutral palette, while navy crown molding adds a crisp, tailored touch.
Designer Brian Patrick Flynn refurbished the living area of this 1975 houseboat by updating the original fiberglass sofas with nautical paint and reupholstering the cushions in brown indoor/outdoor Sunbrella fabric accented with white piping detail. A clear Lucite table with storage underneath gives the illusion of a bigger space. Miniature aluminum blinds allow for a view of the water, but provide privacy at night.
