The Blue Heron House in Montara
ThE BLue Heron House in Montara
When designing their home, everything from the sea fit my client's personality: starfish, wing back chairs, seahorse, sails, and everything else ocean based. They wanted a nautical yet formal look without being too stuffy. This project was truly a collaboration, which helped her focus on what design elements were most important. I added subtle layers with paint, metallic grass cloth wallpaper and floral draperies. We varied the species and tones of the wood elements to compliment each other and give an unexpected look to very traditional style. We made it formal and sophisticated while still being age-appropriate and comfortable.
