This playfully designed beach house was cleverly imagined by interiors studio Chango & Co., located in Westhampton, New York. The designers had a carte blanche by the homeowners for their vacation home, as they had worked with them in the past on a couple of other houses. The goal was to infuse some fun into this spacious five bedroom beach house, which was in need of a major overhaul.
The design team had ten weeks to complete the project. So a tight timeline with complete creative freedom tasked the designers to create an escape from city life for this young, active family of five. The designers also had to be mindful of durable, family-friendly finishes throughout the home. It needed to be a place that both adults and kids could have fun, while at the same time be able to easily entertain guests.
From point of entry up this beach house, it appears like any other home in the neighborhood. A family beach house—that is anything but pretentious. You open the door to discover playful, bright pops of color that will delight your senses. The door is a banana yellow, as is some furnishings and accessories. A formal dining room reveals a fun patterned wallcovering with pineapples.
Then you flow into a bright and spacious “candy-colored kitchen… you know you’re in the midst of people who know how to have fun,” states the designer. Each room reflects the colorful personalities of the family members. This was deliberate—”to encourage as much unrestrained joy and unconfined playtime as possible and the end result is a celebration of whimsy & lightness of spirit… a true playhouse for kids, big and small alike.”
