The Sea, On The Upper West Side


After living 30 feet from the ocean, on Rockaway Peninsula in Queens, NY from 1973 until 2006 Marie DiManno, director of the shop at the American Folk Art Museum in Manhattan, decided it was time to move. Her husband, of the same number of years, had passed away and his love of the sea and her passion for folk art had resulted in the collection you see here. Marie moved to the Upper West Side and the beach moved with her. With the help of designer Dan Owens and architect Nancy Cromar, the collection was beautifully blended into the owner’s favorite color scheme of coral, aqua, and chartreuse.

    How cutesy are those sand pails! The designer did a great job carrying the vintage look over to eat in kitchen nook. Vinyl, classic…then back over to the retro oblong coffee table.

  3. OMG! I love the vintage nautical touches in this home. Want those pails and the diver on the wall. So great to see a home which is not afraid to celebrate .
