Light-filled living room
In the living room, rope-based table lamps, a driftwood coffee table and a pendant light salvaged from a ship establish a beach house vernacular. “I used nautical elements but in a subtle way,” says designer Natalie Chong. On the fireplace, rough-faced cedar panels hide the TV.
“Everything in the living room was based on comfort first, and then style,” says Natalie. “The family enjoys reading, watching movies and having singalongs together, so I made sure there was plenty of seating.”
“This kitchen is simple but grand, so I opted for pared-down yet playful kitchen accessories that wouldn’t distract from the design,” says Natalie. She chose clear-glass pendant lights as a reference to sea glass and vintage letters for a touch of whimsy.
