An interior by ColeDesign

Here are some pictures of a house I decorated in Darien, CT and wanted to share them with you! The house was contemporary, with views of the water. It had a very large living area that opened to a gourmet kitchen with beautiful granite counter tops and cherry cabinetry. There was also a large family room with a full fireplace and bar area that I wanted to make sophisticated yet fun. All of the upholstery was slip covered in white linen fabric. The whole project was exciting and my client was really great to work with!

The living room was very large so I had 3 groupings of furniture, one sofa and set of chairs in front of the fireplace, one settee near the bank of french doors and a dining area.
The wall color is a sea foam green that I thought would work well with the vibrant orange and would look pretty in the room with accents of white coral and white slip covers.

This is the master bed room, and has french doors that open onto a deck.
I used accents of turquoise with soft blues again the soft green wall color. There are sisal rugs through the project that gave a neutral background to the fun colors used in the project.

This horse head is my favorite piece!

Oh my gosh you are good! I bet the place is beautiful. I used to live down there and my boyfriends parents still do. Driving by all those gorgeous homes is one of my favorite things to do.

Be sure to check out Julie & Julia when you can. It's awesome!

Absolutely beautiful. Very chic and sophisticated too. I love the symmetry of the lamps at either side of the sofas, the greens and oranage accent pillows are fabulous and I always like to use the drum side tables (garden seats)... great job.
