Dwell in the Swell

2015-6

dwell in the By Danielle Boisse Photography by Joshua CurrySWELL A ALONGSIDE BANKS CHANNEL lies a dwelling with an art-infused interior, vibrant colors and a creative use of materials. Homeowners Jennifer and Robert Barker found inspi-ration for their condo from their travels around the world, particularly from Jade Mountain Resort on the island of St. Lucia. After vacationing at the resort described as “a cornucopia of organic architecture in celebration of nature’s most alluring settings,” Jennifer and Robert were eager to pour their inspiration into a remodel of their beach home. With two sons, one daughter and another son on the way, the Barkers travel from Raleigh to Wrightsville Beach on weekends and during the summer months to enjoy the beach and outdoor activities. The condo, facing west across Banks Channel and anchoring a sandy beach near the causeway bridge, was at purchase full of traditional brass hardware, mirrored walls and gaudy light fixtures. They stripped down the space and redirected its focus into a simpler aesthetic with innovative customized features. 66 WBM june 2015
