beachfront contemporary


Quietly evocative of the nearby ocean, this special home, built from the ground up, was custom designed by about:space as a vacation oasis for an active family. Sea allusions abound, from the exquisite custom dining chandelier (hand blown sand dollar-like glass pieces) to the back-lit chiseled stone bar face (sunlight on ripple waves).


Lucite stools and a blue glass back-splash carry the watery theme into the kitchen. Natural light was key so the custom stair was designed as a dramatic sculpture bathed in the natural glow of its theatrical backdrop of floor-to-ceiling windows. 


Featured within the dramatic custom wood focal wall in the master bedroom, a gray slab of natural marble – like an abstract painting of a stormy sea -surrounds the fire. A custom leather-clad cocktail table and high-performance upholstery fabrics, ensure the furniture looks pristine even when used by the family’s four-legged friends!
