Monday’s Masterpiece – Coastal Crush

A Hamptons beach house designed by Jarlath Mellett was featured in the latest Lonny magazine, and I am now over the moon OBSESSED with his interiors.  He somehow manages to blend the perfect amount of natural and rustic accents into his sleek contemporary interiors to stop them becoming too hard and angular, and provide the ideal amount of beachhouse chic.

Lots of bleached, whitewashed wooden floors, stripped back French furnishings, driftwood furniture, poolhouse chandies and bonkers gorgeous photographic wallpapers make this property ping with a vengeance – love it!

I never knew I needed an antler armchair until this moment…

This tree root coffee table could be quite hard to pull off, think it would easily look a little ‘twee’, but combining it with a neutral palette and the decorative wallpaper works really well here:

As do the addition of the vintage French armchairs and mirror:


I cannot get enough of this accent wall rose wallpaper – so dramatic and all look-at-me!  The lucite table is inspired too, anything more solid could make the whole scheme seem too bitty.

I’m drooling over this French vintage/coastal driftwood dining chair combo, and the teak dining table is the icing on the cupcake:

Again, totally bowled over by the dramatic wallpaper, and the vintage trunks are PERFECTION next to the leather headboard.

Gaaah, I can’t take anymore of this wallpaper!!!!!  This room was totally enveloped by the sea grass scene.

And the outdoors spaces are divine also – I can pretty much see myself hanging out on one of these sunloungers sipping le vino:

And this is honestly the most incredible pool cabana I’ve ever seen!  Vintage chandies, an oversize daybed and quirky colourful throw cushions?!  Yes please. 

Other shots from his portfolio, that I am going slightly gaga over:

I am so having an egg chair / Balinese daybed / driftwood accent table moment right now..

Another oh so dramatic dining room – the chair upholstery is INSANE!

I think this is actually the terrace of the Hamptons beach house featured in Lonny – love LOVE LOOOOOVE!

But these next two images have to win the prize for most quirky gorgeous scheme today – the abundance of all natural accents (the antler chandie, wicker / linen dining chairs, firewood stacks, driftwood floor lamp, I could go on…) combined with the huge open airy space and quirky display objects are just totally rocking my socks.   

Also slightly obsessing over this cute quirky vignette:

And here are my picks of his product lines:

I am seriously tempted to take the rest of the day off and go scouring Cayman’s beaches for driftwood…
