Deep Ocean Ties
The overall feel of the home is casually elegant, while offering sophisticated comfort. Throughout the home one’s eye lands upon shapes and forms that are modern and streamlined, yet never overly decorative due to the deliberate choice of elements with clean, simple lines. Seaside elements hint at the home’s location without overwhelming visitors with a beach house vibe.
Expanding upon the original design of the home, the new layout includes three bedrooms, allowing for personal space for everyone; a suite in the basement for their kids when they visit; a new expansive living room; a new office; an open dining and kitchen area; a new powder room; and a new luxurious master suite.
The office plays the role of a functional space for Deb and Greg—a hub where they can organize and run their busy lives, all while keeping things tidy and organized. In the original design, the office was closed off, but LeBlanc utilized a peek-a-boo bookcase to open up the space and invite the ocean view into the room. Hand-blocked fabrics bring in the texture of the rocks and sand of the beach, while billowing sheers, evocative of sails on a boat, invite a sense of coziness into the office.
The office opens up to the more sophisticated living room. It’s refined with feminine touches, like the soft brass and seashell chandelier. The beach glass around the fireplace adds a subtle element of seaside personality as it sparkles from the light of cool evening fires. “It’s ready to host people drinking white wine on a warm summer night,” LeBlanc says of the sophisticated living area. “It’s meant to entertain, where someone can be comfortable and kick their feet up, but also feel like they’re in a really finished space.”
