This residence is small but boasts a big view of the Atlantic Ocean. The renovation made this small kitchen function and provided a view of the ocean from the sink. A rich, rift-cut oak with horizontal grain gives a warm but contemporary feel to the room, which also includes countertops made from recycled glass and shells.

The color scheme throughout the home is gray, blue and white with pops of yellow or gold. The family and dining rooms are finished with custom furniture pieces. White leather and printed fabric chairs surround a locally made, stainless-steel dining table. From the living area, the homeowners can relax on the plush gray sofa and enjoy the ocean view.

The master bath has a modern nautical style—custom yellow cabinets with a shiplap doors. Recessed pulls are topped with white and blue recycled glass countertops. The shower has large scaled tiles with a wave-like relief. 

Judges said: This project felt bright, cheerful and creative while maintaining clean lines and a nicely restrained color palette. It has a nice balance of punchy interior furnishings and elegance.
