Beachfront Cottage - Martha's Vineyard, MA beach-style-living-room

Beachfront Cottage - Martha's Vineyard, MA

This quaint seaside retreat was in need of a complete remodel to take it from dark and confined to open and comfortable. Beachy blues and greens, warm whites and natural stones and wood were used to create a light and airy feel that mirrors this beach front cottages surroundings. Custom cabinetry and built-in shelves were used to efficiently make use of the available space in a beautiful and sensible way.

Despite it's size, this waterfront home now feels roomy.

The floor tile in the living room, dining room and common areas of the first floor of this home is an interlocking pattern of unfading green Vermont slate with a natural cleft.

This is a custom piece that was creed specifically for this room and so the dimension is specific to it's setting, I do not recall what the exact measurements were. that is a 55" TV, if that helps you to determine a little better. The millwork was done by Crown Point Cabinetry of New Hampshire.
