Bright Hues, Playful Patterns and Coastal Comfort in Oxford, MD

This home was purchased by a family new to the Eastern Shore. With a combination of small renovations and fresh home décor, we worked to reconfigure this lovely waterfront Cape Cod for their needs. This meant making it bright, fun, and happy–and most importantly, incorporating the father’s favorite color of periwinkle blue! Structurally, two downstairs bedrooms were combined to create a new master bedroom, complete with a bathroom and walk-in closet.

As an interior designer, Fiona guided the homeowners through the process of choosing a theme and colors to seamlessly transition throughout the entire home. Going with a blue-based palette, a coastal theme was selected. Artwork, textiles, and accessories were then carefully curated to work together, provide delight, and elevate the overall design.

Large framed pictures of boats, ropes, and riggings. Window treatments with flowing, fluid patterns. Fun-fetti fabrics sprinkled with shapes mimicking ripples and reflections across the water. Stunning light fixtures with interesting textures and creative features to serve as focal points within each room.

Metallic accents complement the theme by reflecting color and light much like ripples on the water’s surface. Look up and see shimmering stars against a backdrop of periwinkle blue.

It’s easy to see why the owners say everyone feels at home here. Each bedroom has a completely unique style without for fitting the overall harmony throughout the home. Guests can choose between custom turquoise upholstered beds with butterflies floating atop duvet covers, stripes fit for a sailor tucked into a custom bunk bed or a bit of Americana added to the walls in the form of red, white and blue baseball bats.

Common areas board velvet upholstered furniture lending calm, relaxing vibes. The addition of turquoise–reminiscent of green sea glass found at the beach–gives the spaces fun, carefree energy.

Seafoam walls pair beautifully against bright white woodwork and blue carpeting, cool like water beneath your feet. More white accessory furniture with strong lines and appendages, paying homage to stoic ship structures and square or triangular sail-type shapes.

An all-white kitchen maximizes the size of the space and highlights cabinets and trim work details. Island counter in granite and rocky grey grounds the room and provides additional dining space.

Everywhere there is a careful balance between neutral and bold colors; adding weight where necessary, while also keeping careful separation so the spaces remain big and bright. And you can’t help but love all of the natural light that comes into this house!
