2006 Idea House: New England Classic
This home in Portsmouth, Rhode Island displays a unique blend of architectural innovation and classic style.
Design tip: Blend the blues. Layering shades and tones of one color will give a space unity and depth.
Design tip: Make any ordinary object extraordinary by customizing with color. Lynn inked the trim on the lamp shade over the table with a simple navy marker.
Design tip: Combine style and function. The designers chose a deep sink and a faucet with a pullout sprayer—great for cleaning those big lobster pots. Woven baskets in place of drawers store everything from dish towels to oven mitts.
Design tip: Keep it serene. Louvered fabric blinds close for privacy,yet diffuse soft light.
