Contemporizing the Vernacular

Contemporizing the Vernacular

Homeowner Carmita Alonso purchased all the lighting online, sight unseen, including the owners’ bedroom pendant, which is an orb made of turquoise beads with a mirrored band that circles the sphere. The light adds drama and a pop of color to the otherwise neutral owners’ bedroom, whose cathedral ceiling and exposed beam structure suggests the interior of historic Maine seaside cottages. A faux antelope rug is on the floor. The sectional sofa is from West Elm.
