Wesley Moon, Inc.
Treasure hunting on the Jersey Shore
Radiant color defines this sunlit dining room, perched above the Atlantic dunes in Mantoloking, New Jersey. When a client brought in Wesley Moon to design a beach house to replace one damaged during Hurricane Sandy, Moon cherry-picked surviving pieces of the wife’s majolica ceramics collection to lend their saturated blues, greens and oranges to the walls of this space in the new structure. “We layered in touches of pink and coral to create a really unique, WOW space,” Moon says, noting that his team customized a mid-century chandelier from 1stDibs with fresh paint and ikat shades. Rush chairs from Hollywood at Home encircle John Saladino’s glass-topped XXX table, while curtains of Pierre Frey’s Caraibes fabric frame the windows. In Moon’s view, the results are both traditional and cutting-edge: “People are starting to embrace color again, and we took it even a step further.”
“My designs balance simplicity and intricacy, the new and the historic, comfort and surprise.”
