“This is where I spend time with those that I love. Creating a home that feels like an escape from the hustle of the day is key.”
“Pops of color in the art throughout make the house feel more playful. Being a second home, I felt like I could have a bit more fun and experiment with my art selection.”
“Neighboring the family's dining table, a blue nude from a series entitled 'Bathers', by New York-based artist Piero Passacantando immediately draws you in, providing a vibrant pop of color amongst the gallery white walls. ”
“From a design perspective, the space is minimal and modern, as is my personal style, but with an airy, beachy look.”
