Entry of the 2012 Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House,
featuring the Armillary Sphere Chandelier by Eric Cohler.
Circa Lighting is proud to be a sponsor again this year for the Coastal Living Ultimate Beach House in the charming community of Rosemary Beach, Florida. Interior designer, Erika Powell of Urban Grace Interiors, is the creative mind behind the project. She merged the coastal environment with the cottage to create a friendly, serene home.
The entry and the den (featuring the Tiered Prism Form Cornice Hanging Lantern) both lead into the dining room. This space is designed to work for small, intimate meals or large family dinners. The slip covers on the chairs can take the wear and tear of daily use yet, add a touch formality to the room. The white-washed wood walls carry over into the kitchen where slip covers are again used on the bar chairs.
The combination of different finishes can be seen throughout the kitchen. The Goodman Hanging Lamps have antique brass lined shades, the faucet is bronze and the appliances are stainless steel. The mixture of metals keeps the space from appearing too formal and planned.
A pair of Simple Floor Lamps by Barbara Barry are used in the living room as an alternative to the typical side table and lamp combination. The three windows let in an abundance of natural light yet, the floor to ceiling drapes are perfect for hiding it on warm afternoons.
The master bedroom is traditional and slightly formal but, the serene coastal color palette is continued. The Lauren Table Lamps in celadon porcelain by Alexa Hampton are the perfect color and style for this room. The Millo Chandelier by John Rosselli adds an elegant touch overhead.
The window in the master bathroom allows natural light to come in yet the shade provides much needed privacy. The Wilton Double Sconces are used on either side of the modern vanity with square drawer pulls in a similar brass finish.
A Marigot Chandelier With Seeded Glass Beads adorns the guest bedroom where the patterned bed frame is the focal point.
The guest bath is home to one of Circa Lighting’s most popular fixtures, the Bryant Sconce by Thomas O’Brien. With clean lines and brass finish, it’s the natural choice for the modern space.
The color palette is brighter in the girls’ room which is reminiscent of summer camp. The Andover Flush Mounts are used for overhead light while the Noho Double Yoke Torchiere Sconces were chosen for both the boys’ and girls’ rooms.
Bunk beds in the boys’ room are a great idea! The privacy curtains and sconces are just right for nightly reading.
Every house needs a game room, right? Watching movies or just hanging out on the comfy furniture is what this space is for and the Simple Cylinder Table Lamp in clear glass works great with the light, airy feel of the room.
The striped ping pong table also doubles as extra dining when the net is removed. What a clever idea! Erika chose the Longacre Floor Lamp by Thomas O’Brien for one corner of the room.
The color palette changes a little in the home’s theater which includes linen chaises and concrete side tables. The space is warm and cozy partly due to the lighting – Small Hicks Pendants and Germain Double Sconces – installed on a dimmer.
Every home needs an outdoor living space, especially at the beach. And, this one meets all of the requirements with durable furniture, crushed oyster shell paths and colorful accessories.
An outdoor living space wouldn’t be complete without a pool and cabana, right? Can you see yourself relaxing in one of the lounges with a cold drink?
