Architecture and Interior Design

Built in the 1990s, the house embodies a classic West Coast cottage style, featuring cedar siding, shingles, and accents of river rock that blend harmoniously with the surrounding landscape. Inside, Andrea Rodman Interiors has curated a soothing ambiance with a soft palette of whitewashed oak and bone-coloured cabinets. Subtle touches of navy and light blue add a beach-inspired Hamptons feel, while traditional print wallpaper creates a welcoming and timeless atmosphere.
