Studio C wanted to create a multi-generational family home everyone would want to come back to to best experience Martha’s Vineyards quintessential Americana red-white-and blue seaside vibrancy
An open living room, dining, kitchen concept is key to summertime living. Open kitchens are becoming the heartbeat of a home and homeowners and guests alike are drawn to spend time in the space.
Spatial planning is critical for comfort and function. With such a large main room, our goal was to create a space multiple people use together. The layout is also well suited to remain intimate if it is just two - someone sitting to read the paper whilst another prepares the morning eggs.
Studio C commissioned custom furnishings – such as the Ruhlman inspired barstools- throughout the home and gave new life to 19th century English antiques. The curves in both periods of pieces gently carry the eye through the space.
A cozy cocktail seating area near the dining room was necessary. Tea time, card time, cocktail time! It all works in this nook with the harbor view.
No obvious seaside palette here. All the upholstery was redone in English countryside colors – heather blue, rust, sage green, antique rose, ecru and chestnut – in fabrics primarily of linen, silk and jute.
