A MODERN SCANDINAVIAN BEACH HOUSE
We give a young entrepreneur’s retro beachfront property a much-needed update with Scandinavian flair.
THE VIEWS FROM THE APARTMENT INFLUENCED THE DESIGN
The home's natural light was the main source of inspiration, and while the client wanted a more neutral palette, we used texture to add complexity and interest in the otherwise minimal space.
CREATING THAT OPEN-PLAN FEEL
We opened up the home's divided space with retractable sliding wood-planked walls to allow for both privacy and better flow when needed.
MODERN FINISHES WITH BOLD LINES
The home received a full renovation and PlaidFox worked closely alongside the client to select finishes that would make the home feel modern yet still warm and relaxing. To channel the client's desired Scandinavian vibes, we incorporated natural finishes and designed rooms with pared down furniture.
THE RIGHT BALANCE OF SCANDINAVIAN
Incorporating materials such as honed black stone, bleached oak, concrete and grasscloth help define the style of the home as Scandinavian, a style that is about spareness as much as it is about warmth.
