Restful Refuge

A bedroom on the bay makes the most of its expansive, watery vista

Restful Refuge - When interior designer Christy Brown was tapped to work her magic in a waterfront home under renovation in Annapolis, the goal was to prioritize its expansive views, which take in both Whitehall Bay and Pleasant Lake.

Among the bay-facing rooms is the owners’ bedroom, which enjoys access to an expansive deck through a glass-fronted door flanked by windows.

Brown set the tone with walls painted in Benjamin Moore’s bold Newburyport Blue. “The clients’ favorite color is blue—and with the water just beyond, this was the obvious choice for the palette,” she explains. Beige fabrics and rug offset the deep hue while highlighting the water vista. Pleated drapery in a Kravet linen-and-silk blend frames the window wall; Brown concealed hardware in a pocket behind the crown molding to create a sense of height and breadth for the windows. A bed, chair and ottoman from Hickory White beckon the residents to relax and soak up the scenery.
