The Interest In The Unpredictable

The Interest in the Unpredictable: A unique study that is equally as gorgeous as it is surprising // By SummerHouse Interior Designer Elish Moon

When we first saw pictures of a study that SummerHouse | Ridgeland Designer Elish Moon recently completed, we were blown away! Not only was it a stunning space, but it was so unexpected! It’s not every day that we see a deep green velvet sofa, deep green walls, and pops of warm spice. We were enamored, so we got Elish to share a little bit more about this lovely design! (Disclaimer: These are cell phone pictures. We hope to get some better ones done very soon! But the space is still stunning!)

I worked with them first as an assistant and then as a designer. While this couple had a beautiful home we had done by the water, they moved to a slightly smaller, easier to manage residence in their retirement. Although their previous home was absolutely beautiful, this new home was cleaner, brighter, and more modern. They wanted the design direction to reflect that. While the entire home is light, bright and airy, the husband wanted one space to still capture the warmer, cozy, richer feel of their previous home… and occasionally escape from boisterous grandchildren! This second level bonus room-turned-study was our one room to depart our white color scheme and go for something rich and bold. Together we chose the beautiful Benjamin Moore Narragansett Green for the walls. His love of books is evident in this space and they became a focal point as he crafted bookshelves to fit his needs by hand. The very narrow footprint was a challenge but really ended up working in our favor. We were able to line the walls with shallow shelving and order an apartment length sofa in a perfectly coordinated velvet. Although this room was somewhat of an afterthought, it became one of our favorite rooms as elements seamlessly fell into place. I’m hoping they can spend many hours in this room enjoying their well deserved retirement!”
