You Can Hear The Ocean Calling18.5.09
House Beautiful June 2009.
It is especially gratifying when the predictable presents the unexpected. This Hampton vacation home, tastefully decorated in the traditional blue and white palette with a hint of lemon yellow, looks nothing like you would expect. It is refreshing and revived, thanks to the incredible choices made by Interior Designer David Lawrence. Most surprising, bold prints on the floor, deep sea blue on the sofa, and the soft linen textiles that tie it all together. A milky white tone is the backdrop to contrast all the bold features. Of course, pulling back the curtains to reveal a great bush of flowering hydrangeas also adds great character. In the dining room, yellow makes a subtle appearance in a traditional rug, murano glass chandelier, and brilliantly trimming the curtains. This home is an attraction for the senses. You can smell the crisp air, hear the ocean calling at a distance and feel the warm sunshine coming in through the windows.
