Fab Five: Love Story

Five talented designers create chic and romantic coastal living spaces



 

1 I Romance Redefined

With sea and sky as an ever-changing backdrop, Ohara Davies-Gaetano opted for a play on textures rather than colors and patterns for this home in Strand Beach, Calif. “It invites you to lie on the sofa with a favorite book and listen to the waves,” she says. odg-interiors.com

 

2 I Perchance To Dream

An antique Canadian armoire, which the owner of this coastal New Hampshire residence had received from a relative, was the inspiration for designer Liliane Hart to create this dreamy living room using traditional and contemporary damask fabrics. lilianehart.com

 

3 I Bathing Beauty

Interior designer Tom Stringer fuses California casual with European charm at this oceanfront estate in Santa Barbara, Calif. The master bathroom’s restrained neutral palette creates a serene retreat and a calm backdrop for showcasing exotic artifacts. tomstringer.com

 

4 I The Colors Of Cabo

The vibrant colors and breezy oceanfront lifestyle of Cabo San Lucas inspired Kara Mann when designing this alluring Mexican villa. Cushions in local textiles, a Beni Ourain Moroccan rug and a fuchsia outdoor dining set lend the home a singular authenticity. karamann.com

 

5 I And So To Bed

Sweet dreams are stitched into the feather-soft fabrics of this beautiful bedroom, designed by Kriste Michelini for a San Francisco client. The designer turned to linen, cotton, sheers, cashmere and sheepskin to create a restful, romantic room. kristemichelini.com
