Like many mid-westerners, this couple wanted a beachfront vacation home to enjoy with extended family, featuring a comfortable, contemporary coastal design aesthetic. They selected Decker Ross Interiors and lead designer Dyneen Menard to bring their dreams to fruition. She incorporated design elements and a color palette that would provide this family with a beautiful, relaxing space conducive to creating cherished memories in their seaside retreat for years to come.

The beautiful silverleaf chandelier, in a curvilinear wave pattern, provides lighting for the dining area. An adjacent wall offers a creative vertical display of ceramic flower platters with veining detail in fresh Caribbean tones.
Abstract elements are cleverly arranged in an asymmetrical design to intrigue the eye, adding interest to this beautiful beachfront home. The textural, ombre tones of soothing turquoise original art on gallery wrapped canvas, and the whimsical assortment of mirrors resembling underwater sea life provide a modern coastal element to this gallery wall.
Swivel Chairs facing water
A Mother of Pearl inlay table flanked by two cozy swivel chairs provides a relaxing spot for quiet conversation or contemplation looking out over the sparkling turquoise waters of the gulf. Dyneen chose hemp wrapped, hand-knotted lanterns in various locations throughout the space to add a natural artisan element to the design.
Dyneen selected a driftwood grey headboard with hand textured finish, to transform a traditional shuttered design element to one with a modern coastal vibe. The four framed corals above add a subtle array of color. Carrera Marble nightstands with hammered metal pulls, abstract wire mesh ottomans and a child friendly “bedtime reading” chaise, add beauty and functionality to the Master Suite.
