Dune Drive Sitting Area
This Dune Drive Sitting Area designed by GailGray Home enhances the traditional, coastal style of this beach house on the Jersey Shore. Most coastal properties aim to be light, bright, and homey. This home does exactly that – especially in this sitting area. To go along with the bright atmosphere, the identical armchairs bring not only a cozy feel but also feel more colonial than modern. The dark wood pieces of the frame of the chairs offer a deep contrast from the lighter brown of the hardwood flooring. The end table offers that same feel – the dark wood of the base matches perfectly with the bases of the chairs. The warmer brown tabletop, although does not match anything in this space, does pair perfectly with its surrounding area.
The coastal color palette is seen in the subtle vertical stripe pattern of the identical armchairs with the two shades of pale blues – one dark, one light. When looking closely, one can see that the blues match accessories in other parts of the room. The lamp and the curtain for example. That color can even be found in the book on the end table.
The use of maps is quite common in coastal themes – which can be seen on the rounded ottoman and the wall with the ship wheel (another common decoration in coastal themed spaces).
