Best Interior Design of 2021: New Castle Ocean View Reno

This project is in New Castle, NH on the bay overlooking the Isles of Sholes. The house was formerly owned by the homeowner’s parents and when the homeowners took the house over, they conducted a major renovation involving bathrooms and the kitchen. For some reason, the former designer didn’t complete the project. As such, I was brought in to “put the icing on the cake” so to speak.

The scope of project included mostly lighting, furnishings, wallpaper, and paint selections as well as finishing a fireplace façade. When I sell furniture to clients, I only work through the Boston Design Center as these products are high-end and exclusive to discerning clients who are looking for products that are custom and unique.

In the Living Room, we focused defining a room layout for both entertaining and relaxing, so we decided on a sofa and two swivel chairs from Kravet all with custom fabrics and leather. The ceiling light fixture is from Hubbarton Forge and the lamp is from Circa Lighting. The coffee table and credenza are both custom pieces from Anees Furniture.

The Dining Room fixture is from Tech Lighting and serves to pull together the foyer and kitchen seating area nicely.

In the Kitchen seating area, we finished the fireplace off with a Daltile surround and a porcelain stone floating mantle pulling all the shades of grey together.

Finally, we fixed the Primary Bedroom up with a new accent wall of wallpaper from Holly Hunt and matching swing arm light fixtures from Studio 534 to match the gold hand painted stripe in the paper. The electrician was able to find blue Lutron switches to blend in with the wallpaper. The bench is from Anees furniture and the new dresser is from Thomas Moser in cherry to match the bed frame.  A comfortable seating area was created for naps and to highlight the view of the Isles of Sholes.

These clients, as artists and world travelers, were amazing to work with. All we had to do was simply refine the functionality and style of their home to complete their project. To view more photos, check out the portfolio page here.
