To keep the beach house feeling beachy casual, Alex used outdoorsy blues and greens plus touches of organic materials including sisal and raw wood.
To create a space that would be fun and functional for a young family, Alex assembled a mix of old and new — a look Jenna felt perfectly at home with. “I have a pretty eclectic style. I’ve been influenced by my mom a lot — she has great taste.” In the mashup: an antique-y couch covered in one of Sister Parish’s signature Palm Beach-preppy patterns, midcentury-style side tables and slipper chairs (the latter scored by Jenna at a vintage store), and a bright blue-and-white striped dhurrie rug. The palette, a mix of blue, white, tan, and gray, has a decidedly maritime feel. “It’s important to me that a house reflects the landscape it’s in,” says Jenna. “And here there’s sort of a whimsical kind of nautical beach vibe.”
