This home—drawn by Jay Madden, built by Skip Toole, and decorated by Wyndecrest Home—was inspired by the historic Seven Sisters houses of Beach Haven. The first of the Seven Sisters homes was designed by architect Henry Reed in the 1920s with six more structures to follow throughout that decade and into the1930s. This residence reflects the timelessness of these homes and even mirrors the gables of one of the historic homes across the street.
The homeowners set out to create an updated classic and chose a palette of royal, navy, and white punctuated with orange. Driftwood accents and printed “rope” grasscloth are offset by lacquer tables and custom China Seas fabric printed on Sunbrella™. Indoor/outdoor sisal geometric rugs offer a casual elegance paired with the durability of beach living. The understated coastal theme is further reflected in the white coral carefully placed in the kitchen’s upper cabinets.
