Kips Bay Decorator Show House 2012 – The Cabana by Scott Sanders

A smile came over my face as soon as I entered Scott Sanders Cabana inspired room!  It reminded me of the kind of space I would design for a Palm Beach courtyard-style beach house – or even my current pool house in Greenwich (When the time comes to redecorate).  I love and appreciate color and so this room was right up my alley!  Upon entering the room, I was greeted with a Lilly-inspired Juicy Jute grasscloth wallpaper in “Split Pea” by Philip Jeffries, Ltd.  The fabrics and trims that he used were by Scalamandre (if anyone knows the patterns, comment below) with fun, colorful throw pillows made by the Michele Van Saun Studio. 

A fun twist on the upholstered sofa with the overstuffed pillows (love) were the metal spring table and chairs by Craft Fabricators.  They give that fun, unexpected poolside cabana feel.  Scott used wall to wall jute carpeting with a bright aqua custom hand spun mohair area rug on top.

I enjoyed the fun details like the the ice bucket and drinks (ready for hungry swimmers), the monogrammed beach towels and of course the bin of colorful flip-flops ready for weekend guests! Overall, a totally fun Dorothy Draper inspired room!  Photos Copyright Melissa Hawks
