French Country City Home

This Old North stunner celebrates the marriage of Victorian design, with touches of French country and coastal living.  The vision for the family room was to create a space that was a serene counterpoint to the couple’s busy life.  The nautical combination of blue and white reminds them of the ocean and the beadboard ceiling is an evocative seaside architectural detail.

The coastal design included a fireplace, with a live edge mantel and sky blue porcelain mosaic tile. The fireplace was flanked by two perfect wall units to display the home owners’ special things. The ceiling, created by the owner, is an intricate beadboard and the custom paneling on the walls is flawless. Rich warm toned hickory floors were installed, layered with a wool rug filled with deep and periwinkle blues. The furniture is warm and cozy and gives a nod to coastal living.
