Using color to create bold interiors is good medicine for lifting the soul while simultaneously bringing revival to an interior space like nothing else. Done well, these interiors display an incredible blend of color, finishes, texture and furnishings that embrace everyday living and the joy of life in its many dimensions.

On the emotional value of color on the places we call home I agree with architect Suzane Reatig who believes “It (color) makes people happy, like listening to music. It makes them feel good.”

What I love about this 1940’s ranch beach house on Nantucket Island designed by Gary McBournie is the well thought out layering of details that pull these spaces together. Each layer of color (presented in many forms) complements the end result which is a home that reflects the personality and style of its owners.

This outdoor living and dining space provides the perfect extension of enjoying this home.

Architect Bill Hutchins could not have expressed it better recently when asked about the exterior and interior color trend phenomenon, “I just like the vitality and life force of color.” This home certainly adds vitality and the life force of color!
