Back to the beach… I know, I know Christmas is around the corner and winter is settling in but I’m still thinking beach:).
So i thought I’d continue the tour of the Avalon house.
If you missed the previous beach house posts you can go
Let’s head upstairs to the family room/dining room. This is how the owners found the space.

swivel chairs by Lee Industries
Large abstract by Baltimore artist Janine McGuire
light fixture Anthropologie
So how did we approach this space? First we repainted all of the dark paneling decorators white and added new cypress hardwood floors. We also removed the stone fireplace. This was not in the original plan due to budget constraints but we discovered it was unstable and unable to hold the TV so we removed the stone and added new dry wall. For a little pop we painted the interior of the fireplace box a bright blue.
We kept my client’s coffee table and just styled it. We also added new slip-covered sofas and linen swivel chairs from Lee industries.
To add just the right amount of color and pattern, we added custom made Quadrille pillows with a bright blue contrast welt. The pillows you see on the swivel chairs I bought retail and added the perfect color trim to the plain white pillows. And we hung a large colorful abstract in between the sliders.
The cool light fixture above the table is from Anthropologie and the dining table was custom made by the owner.
One last look.
Thanks for reading!! xoxo
