Coastal home décor and fashion blend Sea Summit.
Sea Summit offers a natural inspiration for designers with its spectacular ocean views and San Clemente locale, but Jenny Kennett of With-IN Design also found inspiration in part from fashion designer Tory Burch. The models at Sea Summit’s Aqua neighborhoods take design cues not only from the Mediterranean-inspired architecture and the ocean itself, but also from the latest fashion trends around the world. Each of the neighborhood interiors exemplify coastal home décor, inspired by the beach and native habitat below.
Kennett incorporated colors and textures such as raffia, coral reef, linen, and Cayman blue. “The shapes, surfaces and finishes create a soft, chic modern aesthetic that looks upon collected pieces with love,” says Kennett.
Tory Burch traveled extensively with her family when she was young, and her exposure to different cultures is reflected in a love of bright colors and her eclectic style. Burch and other fashion designers also often display a love for gold. “In a similar way, some of our light fixtures and artwork accessories have subtle gold finishes,” says Kennett.
Taylor Morrison’s award-winning floor plans provide spacious living spaces with coastal interior design, and the open layouts lend themselves to indoor/outdoor spaces ideal for relaxing and entertaining. All five Aqua floor plans exude an air of luxury and sophistication, with refined attention to detail.
In the world of fashion it’s the accessories that complete the look. Likewise, for those designing a new coastal-inspired interior, Kennett and team suggest residents may combine timeless collected pieces of art or furniture with chic, modern shapes.
“The most important piece in your room is going to be one with a strong outline or silhouette,” says Kennett. “It announces you as confident and refreshes the things you already have.”
