The RAINBOW House

We recently received a welcoming and colorful home design by Max Lam, the Chief Designer of Moderne .

Italian retro riviera seaside decor

For some dreamy seaside decor ideas, check out Annette Joseph’s Italian summer home. She designed it and claims it boasts a “fishing town meets retro Riviera vibe” and we love it. The entire interior concept was inspired by the sea. So throughout the home you’ll find lots of blues along with warmer colors that have an earthy, sandy or rusty quality to them. Imagine this – an antique fishing boat calmly glides by while you take your slow morning walk on the beach. Now you have a good feeling about the color scheme. The Ligurian style stone wall in the guest room is really impressive and brings in a warm and rustic textural element.

With all that light, the home feels fresh and airy; you can almost smell the ocean breeze. Continue Reading
