Peaceful and playful, this Chatham home is spectacular!
Katherine Fisher, interior design project manager at SV Design, says she enjoyed decorating this “modern-day beach house” to be a “functional, comfortable and beautiful” space. SV Design, with Classic Kitchens & Interiors, designed the kitchen to be as open as possible and not distract from the view. Enchanting views of the pond change daily in the large picture window over the sink. Fisher notes that a large secondary island at the rear of the kitchen, which leads out to the pool area, allows for casual family dining. Moving into the connected family room, “Comfort was huge,” Fisher says. “And the space needed to accommodate a lot of family and friends. The sectional maximizes seating, the swivel [chair] moves to view the water or the seating area, small cubes can be moved about the space for flexible seating, and bench seat cushions flank the fireplace with storage underneath.”
“Blue is the primary color, with accents of orange, and we used indoor/outdoor fabrics for durability,” Fisher continues. “The Roman drapery is fixed and purely decorative to soften the windows. Motorized solar shades sit behind them for privacy and shade when needed.” Every room is designed to receive optimal sunlight. High ceilings and a variety of windows and doors fill the house with sweeping light throughout. Even on an overcast and dreary day, it remains incredibly bright inside.
To the left of the centralized formal dining room is the quiet side of the house. A more formal living room overlooks a hillock, where a hammock hung between trees invites a nap. The view can also be enjoyed from the built-in window seat, flanked by cabinets and shelves for books and family treasures. The beautifully designed coffered ceiling and modern lighting fixture add to the refined nature of the room.
