Designed by Brooklyn-based design firm
Here’s what Susana Simonpietri, Chango & Co.’s creative director, had to say about the renovation.
With beach houses, we draw much of the inspiration from the surrounding landscape—cool blues, soft sandy neutrals, natural textures, etc. We also wanted this space to be a true reflection of the client’s personality so, her fun-loving, casual demeanor was a huge inspiration for the finished space.
The client wanted to have some really fun and playful spaces for her two boys. We created an awesome playroom on the first floor with a colorful gallery wall, bright patterned fabrics, and a very cool double rocker. Their bedrooms were also decked out in pattern and color, with fun wallpapers and accessories.
If you start with a beautiful white canvas, you can layer in really interesting mixes of textures and colors.
In the living room, we wanted the indigo to be center stage, so we chose really sumptuous pillows made from vintage fabrics against the bright white linen couch. In the kids’ playrooms, we wanted to create a bold look using primary colors layered on top of white and natural jute.
We love to incorporate natural floor-coverings into all our spaces. This immediately gives the space a warm, welcoming vibe. For this home, we also incorporated lots of natural raffia, wicker, reclaimed wood, and jute.
I think it’s hard to pick a favorite in this one. I personally really love the master bedroom and the dining room. Probably for both the simplicity and the light fixtures that pull on my heartstrings. There’s something both modern and comforting about them.
