I wanted to share a little peek of a project I've been working on. If you watch Million Dollar Decorators the last couple of weeks, you will have seen Jeffrey Marks do a Nantucket house using all retail furnishings and as it happens, I've been doing the same. This house is on Cape Cod proper, near the National Seashore and Provincetown. The views are spectacular and include marsh, pond, full on ocean and a small harbor. The house was architect designed and built in the 1990s and is very sleek and modern. The kitchen, great room and master suite are the top floor to take advantage of the views, with the rest of the bedrooms on the lower level. The owners plan on using it themselves for vacation time as well as a rental property. Once it's completely furnished and on the rental market I will be able to share final photos, but for now:
The prior owners left the sofas and coffee table behind, but they are being replaced.
Here are many of the furnishings that have already been purchased and are on site. The plan was to keep everything in a contemporary style to match the architecture of the house while adding in some warm wood touches, natural rugs and a neutral palette inspired by the views outside the window. There are three distinct seating areas in the great room - dining, fireplace sitting, and living room sitting. The television set will be mounted over the fireplace and the seating includes a small sofa plus two large comfy arm chairs on swivels to be able to take in the views as well as the game. The living room area will be for more formal visiting with two large sofas facing one another.
And here are my digital renderings:
Many of the finishing touches such as lighting, art and accessories are still to be decided on. Meanwhile, you can see resources for the above furnishings and more on my Pinterest board.
