Home on the Waves, CohassetVictorian Staircase, Boston

This ocean-front shingled Gambrel style house is home to a young family with little kids who lead an active, outdoor lifestyle. My goal was to create a bespoke, colorful and eclectic interior that looked sophisticated and fresh, but that was tough enough to withstand salt, sand and wet kids galore. The palette of coral and blue is an obvious choice, but we tried to translate it into a less expected, slightly updated way, hence the front door! Liberal use of indoor-outdoor fabrics created a seamless appearance while preserving the utility needed for this full time seaside residence.

Nicole Jacobs added this to What to Do With the Space Under the StairsJan 22, 2017

10. All-in-OneIf you don’t need or want the area beneath the stairs to function for anything else, why not stretch your decorator’s legs with a full styling of the space? Think about including some elements from the aforementioned suggestions — greenery, mirror, table, seat — into one glorious zone that’s all about style. This photo is a beautiful example. The narrow hall table is styled with a lamp that balances the vase of fresh-cut blooms, books and other smaller items. The decorative orange mirror adds a shock of color and height. The upholstered stools add texture and pattern, and the stripe of the chair’s slipcover echoes the stripe of the stair runner.MoreKey Measurements for a Heavenly Stairway8 Clever Ideas for the Space Under the Stairs

Laura Gaskill added this to 10 Reasons to Love CoralJul 2, 2014

1. Coral adds instant glamour. Room feeling a little ho-hum? Paint something coral for a quick hit of glamour. This hue feels like it could have been plucked straight out of the Hollywood set of a Technicolor film — try it on a mirror frame or side table.
