With their feet firmly planted in the city, this young family longed for an easily accessible country retreat where they could recharge during weekends and vacations. When they stumbled upon a newly constructed home situated on the corner of a farm in Middletown, Rhode Island, they knew they had found just the spot. The couple wanted to create a peaceful, open oasis that could serve as a counterpoint to apartment living, yet withstand the rigors of active children. Using a soothing color palette that calls to mind the natural surroundings and seaside vibe of nearby Newport, Rachel Reider Interiors used large scale furniture to compliment the open floor plan and create welcoming spaces for the guests and extended family members that are sure to congregate there.
