Let’s walk through Wesley Moon’s artistic creation, from a hurricane-damaged house to a whimsical beach house project.
“My projects balance simplicity and complexity, the new and the historic, comfort and surprise.” this is how the New York-based interior designer characterizes his projects.
Formed as an architect and designer at Georgia Tech, Wesley Moon is experienced in brilliant residential design. Wesley produces his projects to commit to a consistent final result, conveying knowledge of interior design and decoration, as well as architecture and custom furniture.
From custom furniture to structural solutions, Wesley and his team aim to create something unique that connects with the client, always contemplating the balance between the contemporary and the eclectic. The fascination with the exquisite and the perfect influences Wesley to become an associate of distinction in interior design.
A unique beach house
Located on the Atlantic dunes in Mantoloking, New Jersey, this beach house project was conceived by Wesley Moon, but it is a project with its own particularities.
Wesley Moon was called by a client who had recently seen his home damaged by a hurricane, giving Wesley the challenge of breathing new life into this space. The designer began to take advantage of the pieces that survived the catastrophe, including a ceramic collection that belonged to the client’s wife, benefiting from the colors that these pieces could present, blues, greens and oranges.
The color was highly prioritized by Wesley, who wanted to carry the concept of the house on the beach to a side more focused on the sea and everything to which it relates. In this way, Wesley and his team opted for the use of touches of pink and coral to give the unique feature of this beach house project.
Let’s explore this beach house project
Trying to illustrate this beach house project is detailed but at the same time simple, which shows a little what Wesley Moon intended for this space. Focus on details to arrange within a simple and clean environment.
Most of the elements, if not all, chosen by Wesley in the decoration of this place, from the furniture to the choice of colors, are connected with the designer’s intention to transport the space to a dimension connected to the sea, so the presence of blue is practically instantaneous to perceive as soon as you see the interior of this beach house.
Various shades of blue are used along the walls, always in contrast with the rest of the elements present. The play of colors between different shades of blue is also something explored by Wesley Moon, exploring the contrast that these different tones can allocate.
This beach house project is enchantingly designed. All the surroundings of this place are designed to offer a peaceful and freeing time of rest for those who enjoy it. The light tones in almost the entire house are designed to convey that feeling of calm and tranquility, which will be the most sought after by customers who want to spend the weekend at their beach house.
The way in which Wesley Moon was concerned to give a different life and a unique identity to each room in the house demonstrates how this beach house project was prepared to treat and satisfy the needs of all family members. Even if the basis of the entire project is the same, we can see that each room in the house has its history and characteristics, sometimes having a different color than the usual blue used, such as yellow in one of the bedroom.
In addition, the brightness is another of the positive points that this beach house project offers, with natural light being used very well, with very open and airy spaces. As the main concept is the house on the beach, nothing will make more sense than having a house in which the sun is used in all spaces.
The more the decoration of this house on the beach is analyzed in detail, the more we can verify several units that refer to this environment related to the sea, such as pieces that illustrate fish, lobsters, corals, shells and even the use of seagulls. In these details, you can see the detail with which Wesley Moon worked on this beach house project. Of note is the magnificent washbasin used, in which we have the shape of an octopus around it.
Due to the use of so many elements in a detailed way, the overload of the space could be a threat to this environment, however Wesley was careful not to make the space massive in terms of its filling, leaving the simplicity and harmony of the area.
Wesley Moon’s beach house project shows what we can expect from the interior decoration of such a space. A peaceful environment that brings the best of the sea into your home. A place that everyone deserves to escape the stress of daily routine.
