“I kept things light and fresh by using a neutral palette of whites and greys with wood accents,” Jay says. “The rock star in the home is the ocean view, and I didn’t want to detract from that. I wanted the furniture to flow seamlessly from the indoors to the outdoors.” For the living room, he brought in a five-piece sectional, the Leroux dark oak coffee table and crisp white leather swivel chairs. To add warmth and texture, he selected a pair of cozy faux fur ottomans and the Viera graphic area rug.
“The furniture that Jay selected was perfect,” Joe says. “The large sectional in the living room is especially ideal, offering picturesque views of the ocean no matter where you’re sitting. Plus it’s so soft and comfortable, you just sink into it and never want to get up.” The setup, which comfortably seats 12, is versatile enough to suggest a night of stargazing from the couch or an evening of entertaining.
To add lived-in warmth, Jay draped faux lamb throws, his signature touch, over the master bed and living room couch. “People immediately touch the throws,” Jay says. “When they explore the home, we want to hit on all their senses and make them feel comfortable in the space right away.”
