2017 IDS Living Spaces – 1st PLACE for Living-Spaces

This newly married couple in their 60’s wanted a water front home where their blended family could join them to enjoy weekends. The Designer used a black and white color scheme in the entire house to draw in the beauty of the outside and to enhance the drama of the color in the couple’s extensive art collection.

The thread of geometric details inspired by origami, marries the interior design with the contemporary architecture.

The soaring dimensional-tile fireplace wall is the first introduction to the Asian influence in the house while a custom wave-shaped sofa subtly brings the ocean into the room by giving a water view to every seat on the sofa.

The Living Room Sputnik chandelier brings a hip mid-century vibe while the seating area’s clean cone shape focuses the light over a vintage bronze coffee table with inlaid Asian imagery.
