“Summer House is that place we all want to escape to, summer or winter!” explains LuxDeco Interiors Director Linda Holmes. “We enjoyed envisioning the space in its summer iteration where its light woods, rustic furniture silhouettes and linen upholstery work beautifully.”
Framed by a vaulted canopy overhead, the elegant living room enjoys a refreshing California beach house vibe with custom slipcovered sofas, raw wood touches, inspiring travel books and all the warm neutrals of a Nancy Meyers movie (isn't this room classic Something’s Gotta Give?).
Light-reflecting blonde woods feature prominently in the room’s charming furniture pieces, including a high-low combination of Bywater etageres and a complementary Belleville cabinet by William Yeoward which flank a panelled fireplace accent wall.
The room’s airy design is grounded ever-so-slightly by slate blue cushions, a smoky grey rug, bronze wall lights and pewter grey ceramics and metal sculptures. And texture—an essential element of a neutral interior—makes an appearance courtesy of the Julius cane tub chairs, the banana leaf Boyden side table by Arteriors and a raw wood bench.
Elevating the rustic dining table, the neutral dining room-kitchen puts together an eternally-in-style country dining table—the Kingston—with sink-into modern dining chairs. The pairing takes the much-loved silhouette to stylish new heights and creates an intimate space for good conversation, whether it’s fruit and oatmeal at breakfast time or a perfectly crafted meal at dinner time where the faceted bronze pendant lights and contemporary wall lights are dimmed to candlelight levels and the bar cart is stocked and ready to go.
But if there’s one room where such ethereal palettes and relaxed attitudes truly belong, it’s the bedroom, where one would be entirely forgiven for thinking they’d woken up in heaven. In it you’ll find an idea for a rustic bedroom, offering all of the beauty of slow beachy living with the comforts of a well-appointed city home.
A white bedroom with layers upon layers of interest, the room focuses on a contemporary grey bed paired with the Linton shagreen bedside table - a new take on the bestselling Walton design for S/S 2021—and a gestural abstract art piece. And to finish off the look, a bathed-in-light reading spot complete with timeless camelback sofa, where we can imagine lapping up the warmth of the summer sun.
And that’s really what the Summer House is all about. Relaxed-yet-elegant living, in the best possible way.
