Trading Home for Paradise

POSTED: July 5th 2016

By Emily Curley After spending my summers on the same plot of land my whole life, I was initially pretty shocked this past December when my parents informed me they had made an offer on a new beach house. Although the new house is in the same quaint area of East Dennis I am accustomed too, I was opposed to leaving the house that had hosted so many fundamental memories during my 20 years. However, when I arrived at the new house for the first time in early June, I found myself staring at a home straight out of a magazine. As I stood on the porch above the magnificent ocean, any reluctance towards the (not so bleak) house quickly vanished. The house was built in 1976, and was recent Click here to read more.

Choosing Wall Colors

They dip their toe into making a change by courageously adding colored pillows to a space, but that really isn’t a big enough commitment to make a true impact. Wall color – be it a painted wall or wall covering – is probably the quickest change to any space and has the single most profound influence on the feel o Click here to read more.

Trendy Tuesday: Christopher Burch goes from Tory to Tiny

POSTED: March 22nd 2016

By Jessica Freedman Image Source: Tiny houses have officially taken over. Although initially intended as a cheaper housing option, or for those who want to downsize, these houses have expanded (figuratively) to an entirely new audience: the rich and famous. Christopher Burch, who co-founded designer brand Tory Burch, has entered the architecture industry with Cacoon9 and is taking on the trend of tiny homes. He and his team have designed three model homes ranging from a modest 150 square feet to a… still modest 450 square feet. The high price tag on these make them a little impractical for the average tiny home buyer, but a perfect option for those who want to leave beh Click here to read more.

Get the Look

POSTED: October 15th 2015

** Photography by Dan Cutrona Have you ever seen a room in our magazine and wondered where you could find a similar look? Let’s throwback to a room featured in last year’s annual edition of SNEH. This space mixes vintage custom design with modern touches. The bright whites and yellows mix well with the darker tones in beams on the ceiling. Mix and match patterns, while keeping the same color tones throughout the space. Although this room is on the ocean, it can easily transition into any style home.  Read more Click here to read more.

Designer Love

POSTED: September 11th 2015

Q&A with Robin Pierson of “Reflections by Robin” By Katie Menosky   This summer at Falmouth’s Arts Alive Festival, I noticed a booth that stood out from the rest. The unique pieces of coastal-inspired mirror and window art shimmered in the light and immediately caught my eye.  Q: What inspired you to start Reflections by Robin?   A: I was on vacation in Key West, Florida, when I came up with the idea to design windows. I had seen a bar top with coins encased in resin, and I thought how cool it would be if you could see through the bar. I started experimenting with resin over glass and began designing as a hobby. A few years later, my guy entered me into an art show. Click here to read more.
