"We worked closely with an architectural practice from the outset providing the interior details to create a beautiful and elegant New England-style family home. The brief from the client was to build a new old house for the ages. This was achieved through working the theme of symmetry into the composition. We drew our inspiration from the Hamptons-style, characterised by its use of stately columns, ox-eye windows with external walls clad in shingles and weatherboards. The expressive use of shingles is mimicked inside defined by cool, classic and sophisticated designs, whilst creating a casual beach family home. Natural light and soft-white painted panelling form a mellow, airy beach house look that is effortless and calming. The seaside focal point ensured spacious open-plan living was at the heart of the project with a sweeping, elliptical staircase at its core. The Library and bedroom, without a sea view, encompass a more vibrant and cosier feel drawn from eclectic novel covers. The elegant lighting and bespoke furniture embody the new old brief while providing a distinct but homely feel. Working with local artisans and specialist craftsmen our team could create a unique family home complete with pool, spa, gym and cinema."
