East Haven Beach
Newly married Manhattanites, Chuck and Brittany, fell in love with this East Haven, CT beach house, and wanted to make it a place to hang out with family and friends on the weekends. The main living area had an expansive view of Long Island Sound interrupted by two large, white columns, and a wood burning fireplace that had been tiled over by the previous owners. We mirrored the columns so that they virtually disappear in the space, and we created seating vignettes around the room for multiple places to perch and enjoy the view. Underneath the tile we found the original fieldstone chimney, which we restored, and added a custom driftwood mantle, and soapstone hearth. Now no one wants Monday to come!
