Serenity in South Chatham

POSTED: September 9th 2016

Interior designer Marsha Malone of Nautique has a knack for fulfilling her clients’ dreams. By Lisa Cavanaugh | Photography by Dan Cutrona Standing in Frank and Marigrace Dubas’ calmly beautiful living room, it’s interesting to learn that Marsha Malone, their interior designer and owner of Nautique, in Brewster, first envisioned these warm, coastal colors and rich textures during the terrible winter of 2015. “It was so cold,” recalls Malone. “I had my hat on and scarf wrapped around my face as I balanced on the cross beams, and I said to Frank, ‘That’s where you will want the wall wash lighting [to illuminate a] piece of art!’ Click here to read more.

POSTED: September 1st 2016

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.
