Meadow Beach House InteriorsMartha's Vineyard, MA
Inspired by the spirit of Victorian cottage vernacular with an overlay of Scandinavian modernism, this casual, comfortable home plays with a range of colors, subtle patterns and furnishings against its backdrop of pale, hand rubbed, white pine paneling that glows in the island light. Bolder finishes on the main floor interact with the gardens outside while softer hues and fabrics upstairs respond to the sundrenched light and calming views to the beach and meadow. Charming nooks and alcoves with varied seating and furnishings offer endless opportunities for reading or resting throughout the year. Embracing its nautical origins, the home is enlivened by summery ginghams, ceramics, colored and textured glass, copper and brass.
