When Marjorie and her husband Michael began a guest bathroom renovation, they decided to buck the neighborhood trends and embrace their love of all things nautical. “We live on the south shore of Long Island, about five miles from the beach.

Vibrant colors characterize Gullah primitive art which Laura featured in her new guest room. “We have a wonderful piece of Gullah art in this room — a watermelon stiletto — by Monikue Harley Cooper,” Laura says. When choosing lighting for the space, Laura honed in on Barn Light Electric’s Watermelon finish color for the bedside wall sconces. ... Read More

Although Paula loves time spent with family in their Sawyer, Michigan, vacation home, the functionality of the space was lacking for their get-togethers. “We needed a larger, open space to make the flow better for summer weekends when we often have a big crowd,” Paula, an interior designer, explains. And, as with many remodeling efforts, Paula’s project snowballed. Since the footprint changed, flooring had to change. In the end, Paula also had new cabinetry, counters, appliances, and lighting. ... Read More

If you’re lucky enough to live in Key West, you might be tempted to play up a tropical theme in your home decor. But when Grace decided to remodel the kitchen in her home on the southernmost tip of the US, she opted for a cool retro theme instead. “I chose a retro design with a fun, playful feel,” Grace says. “Beach blue appliances by Big Chill were the focal point of the kitchen and are accented with small pink appliances and pink lighting.” The whimsical color palette is balanced with black and white including a bold black-and-white checkerboard back splash. ...
