Summery, floral and bright
Andrew Suvalsky Designs • New York City, NY
This early 20th Century shingle-style home has a natural grace that is perfectly aligned with its historic setting. All the original architectural details, moldings, doors and honey toned wood floors were maintained, while a substantial addition was added to open up balconied sitting areas with views to Narragansett Bay. With a sensitivity to the natural flow of both light and traffic around the large first floor rooms, the color palate and furniture styles is intended to be both casual and elegant. The choice to keep the center-entrance hall in shades of white creates the feel of a clean openness that sets the stage for creamy yellows, ambers, blues and citrus greens of the adjacent Living Room, Kitchen and Dining Room as well as the second and third floor bedrooms. The Sun Porch, with its grass-green wood ceiling and more pungently colored furniture and fabrics has a playful expression. Stylistically a traditional reference is always maintained while mid-century furniture and color choices have been added for, at times, a more modern feel. The interior and the gracefully soft landscaping of this home was designed to celebrate the year-round freshness of its sea-kissed, New England setting.
