Private Residence, by Anne Carson Interiors. Fishers Island, New York
To renovate, decorate and furnish a summer residence on the exclusive Fishers Island, off the coast of Connecticut, in the Long Island Sound. Although the setting was a quiet seaside nature reserve the house, built in the 1980’s, was lacking architectural interest and in need of an upgrade.
Anne Carson Interiors added antique wide plank flooring in fumed grey (resembling driftwood), whitewashed wood planking to the ceilings and created white wood panelled room end-walls. The interior background is white with bright pops of colour. The furnishings are casual and comfortable for entertaining large groups of friends.
