Room with a View

A Washington-area design team interprets summer for the Spring 2007 Design House at The Washington Design Center

Room with a View

According to these designers, no place says summer all year round like Miami. So what better way to embrace the season than with a view from the penthouse overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean beyond?

This dramatic room exemplifies the designers’ fearless use of bold colors. Strategically placed seascapes above the back of the sofa create a mini-mural, giving visitors an unmistakable sense of overlooking the beach. And accessories reinforce the mood: a large painting of shells, a collection of coral, raffia-weave ceiling panels and an area rug incorporating shades of blue and sand.

More good ideas for the casual lifestyle of the beach: the wipe-clean leather on the sofas that makes a practical upholstery choice for an oceanside condo and tables that move easily for flexible entertaining indoors and out.
