THESE BEACH HOUSE INTERIORS ARE FOUNDED ON SPECTACULAR WATER VIEWS AND KID-FRIENDLY DETAILS
Before she could begin filling this Rowayton beach house with furnishings that suited the casual lifestyle of a family of five, architect Susan Alisberg had to do some revamping of her client’s spec home. “They wanted an easy house that took advantage of the views. But the staircase was on the wrong side, and the whole first floor had seven-foot ceilings,” says Alisberg, who relocated the stair to be adjacent to the family room and created double-height ceilings with windows that frame the water and coax natural light.
According to Alisberg, overseeing the architecture, construction and interior design gave her the opportunity to conceive design details like the oversized wainscot, bookshelves
and fireplace in the great room during the planning stage. “The wainscot and its soft blue color give the room a nautical feel,” says Alisberg, who upholstered all the furnishings with indoor/outdoor fabrics. “The kids have separate play areas and this is meant to be an adult space, but the fabrics are durable for whoever uses the room.”
That same sentiment drove the selection of the forgiving zinc-top coffee table and the easy-to-clean tightly woven wool rug that covers the wide plank oak floors. Additional wood touches like the barn door that closes off the playroom and a stump side table add warmth, while a pair of bold turquoise leather ottomans provide a fun jolt of color.
