In the foyer, a chandelier by Oly, a striped rug by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, a buffet by Crate & Barrel, and a mirror by John Rosselli amplify the summery colors of water and sunshine.
The size of the great room makes it useful for various activities--from TV watching on the Bang & Olufsen entertainment system that sits on a console by Oly, to working--with separate seating areas.

A wood urn stands tall in the great room.
An oak kitchen table by Crate & Barrel mixes it up with a matching bench on one side and comfortable upholstered chairs by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams on the other.

In the kitchen sitting area, the designers replaced a dark fireplace surround with sand-colored marble, placed the TV into the recessed overmantel, and drew up two modern wing chairs to create a friendly nook with Hiroko's beloved lipstick-red walls as a backdrop.
The master bedroom's centerpiece is an iron bed by Niermann Weeks. Adding extra seating are an armchair and ottoman in a corner and two stools at the foot of the bed, all by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams.
Crisscross- and trellis-patterned fabric and wallpaper, both from China Seas, envelop the master bedroom in soft pink.
A wall of "Mardale" red floral wallpaper by Cowtan & Tout enlivens the otherwise neutral master bath.
The cabana room was formerly a small, land-locked room without easy access. Designers Terrat and Elms gave it new life by widening its access to the front hall with a pocket door and opening the back wall onto the rear deck via a sliding glass door. The tented walls lend a feeling of being outdoors.
Lounge chairs are arranged to take advantage of the ocean view.
