Dove gray and attention to detail create serene sophistication in the living room of this Connecticut home overlooking Long Island Sound. “I did not want a beachy home so we went with dark floors and classic details,” says the owner, architectural designer Louise Brooks. Farrow & Ball’s “Skimming Stone” is painted on the walls, while the wood comes clean in the venerable paint company “All White.” Silver-gray cocktail and side tables pick up the thread of color from the room’s gray-and-white striped Elizabeth Eakins rug, while the furniture remains calm in white upholstery fabrics. Even the accessories on the fireplace wall shelves are pared down for importance. Most notable is the pair of antique lanterns on the middle shelves.
Beds are obviously the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom. They tend to take up the most amount of space, but that does not mean there isn not room for extra storage. Utilize unused space below, behind and beside the bed to keep the room tidy and organized. Easily store out-of-season clothing in storage bins under the bed or keep extra blankets in a chest at the foot of the bed. Get more ideas for organizing your bedroom.
For those not ready to go all out, a few well-placed airy linens in the kitchen and bathrooms also possess a summery, ethereal air about them. Fog Linen and Schoolhouse Electric both offer 100 percent linen and cotton tea towels, dinner napkins, and place mats with subtle patterns and muted colors. “The addition of homespun linens made of natural fibers brings the simplest form of Mother Earth into your home in a functional way,” says Weidenbaum.
