Victorian Interior Design: Beach House by Martyn Lawrence Bullard Design in Narragansett, RI
Using inspiration from the Victorians, who were the masters of creating layered and patterned rooms, we wanted this home to feel eclectic and fanciful while showcasing my client’s wonderful collections. Combining incongruous patterns at different scales, a cohesive thread of teals and turquoises were chosen to provide a connection through out the home.
Yes! The clients wanted a home that felt like your crazy old aunt’s mad Victorian house. I think what they really meant is that it should feel eclectic and fanciful, with wonderful collections.
Victorian interior design for modern living: It’s an extraordinary, massive 19th-Century Victorian on the ocean in Narragansett, Rhode Island. It’s like something John Singer Sargent would have painted.
Here I took my inspiration from the Victorians, who were the masters of creating layered and patterned rooms. The trick to combining incongruous patterns is to find, somewhere in their design, a cohesive thread of color that provides a connection. If you do that, it will flow. I promise you it will work.
