Fresh Vibe

A condo on Bethany Beach sports chic furnishings and a light-hearted, modern feel

Interior Concepts, Inc.

Tapped to conjure an unexpected, not-your-typical-beach-house vibe in a client’s new custom home in Bethany Beach, Delaware, designers at Interior Concepts, Inc., got to work crafting hip, modern spaces with subtle nods to the coastal environment. “Due to the open floor plan and specific architecture, creative space-planning with unique furniture shapes was necessary,” relates principal Arlene Critzos. “We were challenged by small room sizes in our efforts to maximize multiple functions for both adults and teens.”

Critzos and her team took a playful approach when sourcing unique furniture pieces, from a triangular dining table that optimizes traffic flow (previous page, bottom) to movable nesting tables in the family room. Colorful textiles and art make a bold statement against a clean, neutral backdrop.

"It’s a fun, casual escape full of color—a nice departure from typical beach motifs."
—Richard Arentz, jurist
