The client described the Architect and Builder, Bruce Mears, and I as their dream team!
It was so rewarding to start with the blue print and be a part of every last detail in the construction, and furnishing of this Beach House in Bethany Beach. Interior Architecture is such an important component of design. The color scheme was pulled from the panoramic views surrounding the bay front home.

You can see by this shot that "The View" determined the color scheme for the house!
Our Coastal Living Room is grounded by an oriental Patchwork Rug that has been Overdyed. Each patch takes the dye in a different way. The Seagrass woven chairs allows one to swivel around to see the view of the Bay.
The stairway had a sculptural Sea Urchin and industrial wall Sconces. The Stairs were finished off in a very durable Beach Stripe Carpet.
The entry Foyer had a couple of driftwood finished chairs as you entered. They had the perfect backdrop with the board and batten wall with grasscloth.

In the Powder Room with the low ceiling, we lifted it up by adding a faux window and accented the wall by using very realistic wood grain wall paper. A very fun Nautical Bath!
Our Beach Bath features a striped tile pattern that is reminiscent of a beach towel! The mirror surround and shower had 4x4 Teal glass tile.
In This Guest Room, we started with the Client's headboard. When I found the Black and White Shell Pattern, I knew exactly what to do! The matalase coverlet was embossed with shell patterns and coupled with the taupe dust skirt perfectly. The Sea Glass Paint on the walls, brought the whole room together!
Well, ... we know where the beach is! This awning stripe upholstered headboard sets the beachy theme for this bay front room. The teal painted demi lune tables provide a nice complement in color. Your guests will never leave!
In the daughter's Bedroom the Blue Bell Accent Fabric trims the Window Treatments. The bedding in this bedroom was fun, fresh and playful!
