The Passage

Before Siemasko + Verbridge got their hands on this house, it was a convoluted maze of small rooms and skinny hallways. The renovation made sense of the layout, and took full advantage of the captivating ocean views. The result is a harmonious blend of contemporary style with classic and sophisticated elements. The “empty nest” home is transformed into a welcoming sanctuary for the extended family of kids and grandkids.

Thanks for your question. Wood types vary as well as the stain you choose. This is a very neutral color and can be used in many places. We suggest testing out some samples of your flooring against different colors and look at it in different light in the room, artificial and natural. This will help you find the right color for you're specific room.

This room divider is custom. The fabric came from Zimmer-Rohde and was part of the Etamine collection.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

On the top floor, the husband's office enjoys ocean views and transforms into an extra guest room when necessary. Just out of view to the left are built-in shelves and a desk for him. In the foreground, two chaises can transform into twin beds for sleepover guests. "We added the drapery so that overnight guests can pull it for a sense of privacy," says Verbridge.
Ashlea Wallington added this to 9 Ideas for a Beautifully Draped Home
Build a room within a room. Blessed with a large living space but unsure how to create smaller, interchangeable spaces within it? Curtains can be a clever and temporary solution for creating new spaces without building walls. Sheer curtains, in particular, are ideal and will help to section off lounge or dining areas within the house without restricting light or fresh air. For simplicity and elegance, keep the curtain texture and color subtle.

Build a room within a room. Blessed with a large living space but unsure how to create smaller, interchangeable spaces within it? Curtains can be a clever and temporary solution for creating new spaces without building walls. Sheer curtains, in particular, are ideal and will help to section off lounge or dining areas within the house without restricting light or fresh air. For simplicity and elegance, keep the curtain texture and color subtle.
