Yankee Barn Homes creative director Jeffrey Rosen is not only busy in NH, but finds time to work in other locations. This apartment is on the southern coast of Florida, designed and decorated for a single professional urban dweller with a passion for glimmer and color. Jeffrey took his lead from the southern tropics and added a dash of sophisticated Hollywood. Color cues came from the white sandy beaches and the turquoise hues of the ocean.
Take a look at this living room and how it breaks out of the design box. The dining chandelier as art (an ode to Dale Chihuly), recycled white glass floors, pale turquoise metallic walls, and comfy upholstery all combine for maximum effect. And by the way, shag is back; the perfect foil to all the shiny surfaces!
Nearby in kitchen the use of glossy white continues; high gloss white lacquer cabinets, stainless steel back-splash tile and frosted glass countertops.
Here’s one of the two adjoining bedrooms where Jeffrey uses more turquoise, in this case faux alligator metallic paper, a white leather headboard and over-scaled crystal lamps to complete the room. This is a long way from New Hampshire, but very stunning!
In case you think we’ve gone completely off the rails featuring this apartment, there is a method to our madness. Jeffrey has just completed a new house for Yankee Barn Homes in East Hampton called Oyster Shores. Created with iconic barn homes in mind, it is a thoroughly refreshing modern take on the interior design and décor. Currently being photographed, Oyster Shores will make its completed debut here within the next few weeks. Check back to see what Jeffrey has done utilizing a thoroughly modern approach to the interior of this iconic barn house – it’s really something!
