Ralph Lauren at Sea

The most stunning space on the Marina was the Owner’s Suite on the back of Deck 9.  It was decorated by Susan Bednar Long of S.B. Long Interiors in collaboration with Ralph Lauren Home.  It looked like the interior of an elegant yacht but was also comfortable and cozy.  The bedroom was one of the rooms that had to adapt to the rules regarding flammable materials.  Susan originally wanted to upholster the walls in a heathered grey cashmere but had to find an alternative material.  The new ultra suede looks great nonetheless.  Owner Frank Del Rio and his wife were always out and about on the ship but if I had a suite this nice, I might never leave!

    I am absolutely blown away by the interior of this “boat”! The detail is incredible & it has the feel of a traditional beach house, which is amazing! Thank you for introducing me to this kind of living 🙂

    Love that chair, mirror the Jackie O pic and that tile in the herringbone pattern in the bath! Delish and just like chocolate to decorate with!

    The interior of this yacht is breathtaking, so luxurious and comfortable looking. My favourite room is the grey bedroom, like you, I think I would never leave!

    With the exception of the Master Bath, I am very disappointed with the other millwork despite the strength of the Ralph Lauren furnishings. Love that herringbone floor though.

    Love. Love. Love. What can I say?
    Love the zebra of course, and the chair with the zebra and leather. Perfect.

    I love the bedroom chandelier and all of the mixed animal prints! The decor is elegant and polished, yet still appears comfortable. Well done!
