J A N U A R Y Planter, hangs over stairwell that leads bom entry. Shuttered hi-fi unit on bench was made by Veltman. art objects, contemporary furnishings ajid, of course, an enviable marine view. Circling the stairwell is a low driftwood cabinet partition, only one example of how storage .is abundantly and ingeniously concealed throughout the apartment. An unglazed terra cotta planter is suspended from the ceiling, its long shallow scoop of clay abounding in waxy tropicals that trail their greenery over the stairwell. The living room is a delightful study in contrasting textures that revolve around a basic scheme of pale beach tones. The floor is completely covered in natural, hemp-colored, sea- grass squares. Two white walls of burlap solve, once and for all, the problem facing ' every art collector: i.e., how-to provide a wall surfacing that doesn't show off a riddling of 'nail holes. The end walls of the room are faced with vertical driftwood paneling. The sloped, firred ceiling features huge beams over 2x6-inch tongue and groove sheeting. IMPORTED DANISH furniture is completely contemporary. The low lines and axis of each piece is congenial to a setting that strives for the uncluttered, informal look. Aligning themselves, side by side, are two armless sofas upholstered in biscuit-colored tweed fabric. These basic pieces are flavored with a sprinkling of orange, turquoise and citrus- yellow pillows. A cocktail "table, light and implicitly practical, is a single slab of insulating cork set on tapered legs. Joining the group is a pair of Danish chairs in teak and oak, their slim foam pads cov- ered in terra cotta, charcoal arid sand striped raw silk. Warming this congenial group is a black metal free-standing firehood. A 42-inch shallow metal plate filled with smooth, round stones provides a heatproof base for the fireplace. A second sofa stands in an expansive corner window that commands a bird's-eye view of the bay. The sofa's natural teak and cane frame is effectively teamed with oatmeal linen upholstery. Along the back wall of the room is a low, slat bench upon which stands one of the room's most interesting pieces of furniture--unique, not for its good looks alone, but for the fact that it was designed and constructed by Veltman. Indicating that he is no mean hand at woodworking is this attractive hi fi cabinet made of teak and precisely fitted with folding charcoal shutter dors. OFF THE LIVING ROOM is a dressing area. Sliding doors of driftwood panels conceal capacious wardrobes. A waist- high planter-divider screens the dressing area from the bath. Completely enclosed within the apartment, the bathroom relies upon an obscure glass wall between it and the sun- flooded stair landing for illumination. The tub, located against this frosted glass partition, is recessed so its rim is only slightly above floor-level. Fixtures are sun tan color; ceramic counters are textured off- white tile that, together with the beige-and-cocoa flecked vinyl floor and pale sand cabinets and walls, present the subtlest of monochromatic color schemes.
