Luxe Interiors & Design: Water's Edge


"Livening up the design are pops of color in the form of ceramic vases, pillows and a pair of matching upholstered chairs. Because Wohlner had worked with the owners in the past, she understood that creating the kind of look her clients hoped to achieve would mean incorporating a few traditional fabrics and accessories alongside more contemporary pieces. 'The design has a classic sensibility yet still feels very modern,' Wohlner says."
