When designed properly, these multi-tasking rooms have the power to make our lives easier, fuller and more enjoyable.

PIZZA LOVER’S OVEN The Monogram Pizza Oven from GE combines the crisping performance of traditional coaland wood-burning ovens with the precision and elegance of a sophisticated stainlesssteel appliance. From touch LCD controls preset for multiple cooking options (including flatbreads) to perfectly placed electric heating zones, this sleek, handcrafted 30-inch oven is designed to rival the pizza-making capabilities of the best restaurant pizza ovens. Incorporating the latest technology, it is wifi-enabled for use with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Drop In, and timer and mode changes can be made with the use of a mobile app. Price: $9,900. Available at KAM Appliances, 201 Yarmouth Rd., Hyannis; 800-649-2221: kamonline.com.

HARDEST-WORKING HARDWOOD FLOORS The secret behind the beauty and strength of Sawyer Mason’s collection of prefinished, wideplank hardwood floors is a unique coloring process and a stable, structured construction. Instead of utilizing a traditional surface stain, each plank goes through a reactive color process where a mineral and salt mixture is applied, permeating the wood and reacting with its natural sugars and tannins to create a rich color throughout. The best part? If your floor is scratched, no need to refinish—just dab oil into the blemish and it will be completely camouflaged. Sturdier than engineered flooring, Sawyer Mason floors consist of only two layers of wood, which combats cupping and warping while reducing the off-gassing effect of a multilayered glue-construction.

SHOWROOM RENOVATIONS It would be next to impossible to find a window covering showroom that is more up to date than Budget Blinds (800 Falmouth Rd., Unit 108; 508-539-9989) in Mashpee. When a neighboring business space became available, owners Lisa and Dene Peachey seized the opportunity to expand and update their showroom. Now double the size, Budget Blinds includes a private conference area to meet with clients, a sizable warehouse for shipping and receiving and enough floor space to display all of the company’s latest products. “We have completely revamped and restructured every one of the window samples, hand samples, display samples; every

single one of them is new,” says Lisa. “It takes a lot of sampling to show people everything that is current in the market.” The expanded space also provides room for permanent motorized window covering displays. “We are focusing on motorization and home automation,” Dene says, most of which are compatible with Alexa and Google Home smart speakers. In addition to carrying 247 products and 27 brands, including Hunter Douglas’ “Signature” and “Enlightened Style” window cover lines, Budget Blinds offers window drapery as well as custom fabrics that customers can design themselves using an iPad. For more information, visit: budgetblinds.com/CapeCod.

To complement their growing remodeling business, Rich Carl and his wife/business partner, Lou Ann Burgess, have recently opened a brick-and-mortar kitchen and bath design center in Falmouth. Fully licensed and insured, iKitchens Etc (321 East Falmouth Highway, East Falmouth; 508-457-1530; iKitchensetc. com) is a “one-stop shop” for kitchen and bath remodels. “From start to finish, we do everything,” says Carl, including design, specify products, supply materials and build. The successful business started in 2006. For the first five years, the company specialized in IKEA kitchen installations. Soon customers started to ask about bath remodels. Now, “We do everything except new construction,” says Carl. In order to communicate effectively with customers, iKitchens uses cutting-edge cloud-based project management software that houses important information like daily progress photos, schedules, financials and product selections; clients are even able to submit virtual change-orders. “We’ve done projects for people we’ve never even met!” says Carl. Constantly evolving, iKitchens has started offering custom cabinetry design to builders and other industry professionals, in addition to their residential clients. iKitchens Etc design center is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday.

MEET AND GREET Owner Jeff Plank adds, “It was great to have Senator Cyr visit Mid-Cape. We are very enthused about his proposed streamlining and supportive changes to some of the building regulations in an effort to make improvements to the local housing market and Cape infrastructure.” For more than 100 years, Mid-Cape Home Centers has been providing quality building materials to professional builders and homeowners involved in new construction and home improvement on Cape Cod, the Islands and the South Shore. Mid-Cape Home Centers prides itself on its team of high-quality representatives and the relationships they build with contractors and homeowners alike on a daily basis. The strong foundation built inside Mid-Cape Home Centers’ stores has allowed the company to not just do right by their patrons, but also by the greater Cape Cod community.


On Monday, March 19, Mid-Cape Home Centers hosted Massachusetts State Senator Julian Cyr as part of the Northeastern Retail Lumber Association’s Legislative Yard Tour initiative, which connects lumberyards throughout the Northeast with their elected officials. Senator Cyr toured Mid-Cape Home Centers’ South Dennis location, including the custom millwork shop, lumberyard and estimating department, and met with company leaders, owner Jeff Plank and president Jack Stevenson, to discuss the needs of small businesses in the area. Stevenson shares, “It’s refreshing to meet with the next generation of leaders and voice our concerns regarding the local economy. It’s clear Senator Cyr wants to make a difference. It makes you feel good about the direction being taken to address big picture issues facing the Cape and Islands.”

Making the Grade

A Cohasset home’s poolscape is a multi-season gathering spot. by Kiley Jacques Photography by Brian Doherty


ason Pontbriant of Duxbury Gardeners has a special talent for turning slopes into settings. When Ronaldo and Jeanne de Andrade decided to add an outdoor oasis to their Cohasset home, it was Duxbury Gardeners they called— and it was Pontbriant who capitalized on the grade changes.


THE PUNCH LIST Part of a new development, the contemporary Colonialinspired house sits on a small lot flanked by neighboring homes—one of which is elevated, giving it a direct sight line down onto the de Andrade’s property. Pontbriant was charged with designing a highly functional, private pool area

that would accommodate the couple’s penchant for entertaining while providing cozy spaces to lounge for the family of three. The couple was also interested in using the space on a nearly year-round basis, and they wanted a new deck, a pool, an outdoor kitchen and a fire pit. Pontbriant set to work. His program called for multi-tiered spaces that would work with the sloping topography. (Even the pool is on

two levels.) “It was amazing the way Jason took this little piece of land and carved it all up to make an architectural landscape,” says Jeanne, who, as a graphic designer, has an eye for effective forms. Pontbriant carried the clean straight lines of the home’s interiors into the landscape, which is at ease in its quintessential New England environs despite its contemporary feel.

SPRING • 2018



STONE SELECTION The concrete-walled liner pool by Easton Pool & Spa is centered off the veranda and features a silver travertine pool deck and Rocky Mountain blue granite stonework and veneer. “One of the great things about silver travertine is that there are so many colors within the stone itself,” Pontbriant says. “Every piece is unique—all the colors that you find in stonework are found in the travertine—light


grays, dark grays, browns, creams, beiges, etc. So I can blend any stonework off of it.” To interrupt the vast expanse of travertine, Pontbriant added bluestone accents in the form of caps on columns as well as around the fire pit and water features. “I used colors that would keep things consistent while adding new elements to break up the majority of the flatscape,” he explains.

The heated veranda (top), with nearby outdoor kitchen (left), is a popular social space when cool weather sets in; bluestone caps a captivating fire pit (above).

BUILDING ZONES Because the couple wanted a larger than usual entertaining space, Pontbriant ensured plenty of room to gather beyond the pool proper. Godwin Construction replaced the pre-existing, secondstory 10-by-10-foot deck with a much larger Azek deck, beneath which is the veranda. With its ceiling heaters and close proximity to the outdoor kitchen with seating for 14, it is a popular social space, particularly when the cool weather sets in. (Its success has meant late-season football games enjoyed outdoors.) “First and foremost, I try to design for life beyond the pool season,” says Pontbriant, 28

noting the importance of having different zones—whether for kids or adults, quiet or active, day or night. “It’s really an extension of our living space,” says Jeanne of the landscape’s entirety. Even their 90-pound Berniedoodle has a place to romp—on the slice of lawn they decided to keep. The de Andrades agreed to a few unexpected elements, too, such as the spilling water focal points and Bobé fire bowls and scuppers. “At first, we said no to them but the alternative was to put flowerpots there and I thought, ‘Oh no, I want fire,’” Jeanne recalls.

Jason Pontbriant of Duxbury Gardeners created a multi-tiered design to work with the landscape’s sloping topography.

PRIVACY IS PARAMOUNT As privacy was imperative, Pontbriant sourced large-caliper Hawthorne trees to be planted on the perimeter line off the deep end of the pool, as well as fast-growing pear trees for screening. At the periphery, he went with Okame cherry trees, clumping birches and Japanese Stewartia. Two Coral Bark Japanese maples provide multiseason interest—one is sited by the fire pit, the other by the putting green, which was put in for their daughter, Ellie, a competitive golfer. Bloodgood Japanese maples are under-planted with Golden Mop cypress for red-yellow contrast—something Pontbriant relishes.

“When you can play off red as a dominant color, it really draws your eye to a point we want it to go,” he says. “I try to keep the specimen trees in lines of sight with the focal points of the landscape.” In the end, the sloping grade that initially posed a problem now supports a promontory overlook of the pool. Of the final result, Jeanne says: “We couldn’t be happier—not only with the look of it but also with the way it functions for us. We work a lot, so we aren’t able to travel as much as we might like to. Having this as our backyard is a way to get away.”

in the details

Silver travertine used for the pool deck was sourced through MS International, Inc. in Norwood.


Bobé fire bowls were purchased from Stone Farm in Monroe, Connecticut.

Bluestone fire pit cap was supplied through Northeast Masonry in Plainville.

DESIGN: Violandi + Warner Interiors,

Good Life New England

SPRING • 2018



An open-concept floor plan with an abundance of windows and unobstructed views welcomes the vibrant marsh setting indoors.


n 1991, Caroline and Bob Warner bought their Marshfield home after falling in love with its setting. “We’ve lived here for 27 years,” says Caroline Warner. “It’s just an awesome spot.” Perched on North River, the 1970s-era home faces a hypnotizing swath of lime green salt marshes topped by a slice of Scituate in the distance. Inside, its open-concept floor plan interacts with the vibrant outdoor setting via uninterrupted sight lines, plenty of windows and a large wraparound deck.


Perfect pairings As one-half of the Scituate-based interior design firm Violandi + Warner Interiors, Warner is adept at curating living spaces throughout New England, particularly along the South Shore and on Cape Cod. She and business partner Robin Violandi excel at juxtaposition: classic yet contemporary, stylish yet livable, fresh yet timeless. Their guiding hand results in Houzz-favorite interiors that embody polish and comfort at the same time.

Left & right: Warm brass accents, an homage to the marsh’s color in fall, are a natural fit for the interior’s seaside color scheme.

Friendly and upbeat, the two women met six years ago, and their complementary personalities and design savvy just clicked—they launched Violandi + Warner four years ago. Warner also owns the popular gift shop and home furnishings showroom Welch Company, in Scituate, which the pair use as their design home base.

Design strategy Remodeling her own kitchen was always on Warner’s radar: “It was a little like the cobbler’s kids with no shoes,” she jokes. But during a birthday dinner with her husband in July 2016, he encouraged her to take the leap. The kitchen’s existing features, dating back to a 1988 update, included cherry cabinets, Formica and smaller-scale appliances. There was an island (barely helpful at 3 feet by 4 feet) and a cramped triangle linking sink, stove and fridge. The remodel strategy involved making the kitchen bigger and the adjoining dining room smaller. Since the rooms are open to each other, this layout shift did not involve significant structural changes; however, on one wall, Warner changed the size of two window casements. She reduced a dining room window and


installed a much larger bump-out window over the kitchen sink. “Now there’s about a foot of space behind the faucet; it makes a big difference and feels more expansive,” she explains. Working with Glenn Meader of Good Life New England, a Scituate-based design/build firm, on the cabinets, Warner opted for Shaker style in white. The new cabinet layout checked off a variety of wish-list features, including open shelving for the display of collectibles and a wallpaper-lined appliance garage to wrangle the coffee maker and toaster. “We lost storage by taking out a sideboard in the dining area where the settee is now, so we designed the island to have storage on three sides. The short side across from the stove is where I organize all my oils and spices,” Warner says. Also, the couple finally gained a pantry—a floor-toceiling run of cabinets—by bumping a wall out 15 inches. When it came time to establish the room’s overall style, Warner collaborated closely with her friend. “I think there’s more pressure when you’re a designer working on your own home,” observes Violandi. “Choosing things is a little bit harder; there’s always something new to consider. I was mostly there for moral support.”

Skyline Marble & Granite in Middleboro fabricated the “Mont Blanc” quartzite countertop surfaces. A Ro Sham Beaux geometric pendant, sourced from Warner’s home décor shop, the Welch Company, hangs gracefully over the dining table.

Finding the right products and materials The design duo started with a determined hunt for countertops, ultimately deciding on “Mont Blanc” quartzite. “Its colors are very ‘under the sea’—it’s neutral but has blues, greens and grays,” describes Warner. Continuing their green-blue-gray scheme, the pair decided on shimmery 2-by-6-inch subway tiles, handmade in California, which vacillate among those seaside colors depending on the light, as well as Benjamin Moore’s “Iced Marble” for the island’s cabinets. All of the appliances were updated, resulting in a 42-inch Sub-Zero fridge and a 30inch Bertazzoni oven. The microwave is tucked neatly into the kitchen island. After spending hours looking for hoods, Warner ultimately chose a matching Bertazzoni version, although she didn’t like its available colors. Her crafty solution: having it sprayed with “Iced Marble” at an auto body shop. The kitchen’s pop of brushed brass is an homage to the marsh’s color in the fall. The metal appears with slightly different finishes in the sink faucet, the cabinet hardware, and in two English-style latticed cabinet screens flanking the sink. Sourcing her light fixtures through Welch Company, Warner chose the sink’s Ro Sham Beaux pendant for its style but also its label, Sadie, the name of her beloved Lab, now passed. (“Now she’s over my head instead of at my feet,” she says affectionately.) In order to preserve sight lines, Warner decided against hanging pendants over the island and selected a barely-there Ro Sham Beaux geometric pendant for over the dining table. The island’s stools are a favorite recommendation to their own clients: “We love texture, and the stools bring in a nice woven element, plus burlap, wood, fabric and nail head details. They have a lot going on but are still very neutral,” describes Violandi. Although the kitchen’s skylight was installed 15 years ago, the feature seems new, even to regular visitors—and that’s the power of a successful remodel. All of a sudden the entire living space seems bigger, brighter and more inviting. Now that it’s complete, Warner wouldn’t change a thing. What’s next for the busy design team? “My kitchen!” Violandi jokingly asserts, and although the friends laugh, the wheels definitely start to turn. 38

oanne DiFrancesco and her husband, Bob, fell in love with Cape Cod years ago. “It’s where my husband always vacationed as a child and where we went every summer with a group of friends,” she says. “We loved the West Dennis/ Dennisport location as it was an easy drive from our home on the South Shore and offered all the amenities we needed.” So, when they purchased a ranch house in 2016, they knew it would be a place where their two grown children, extended family and friends would want to visit. DiFrancesco also realized that the small, outdated kitchen would require a complete renovation. “We love to entertain and knew early on that we’d need a kitchen/ dining area that would be able to accommodate a good amount of people, depending on who was visiting at any given time,” she says.

An 8-foot sliding glass door, originally located in the sunroom, was relocated to the back wall of the new dining area to provide more natural lighting along with easy access to the new backyard patio.

Kitchen expansion The original kitchen, which measured approximately 10 feet by 14 feet, was a 1960s-style L-shaped space located at the rear of the house, with dark cabinets, knottypine paneled walls, linoleum flooring, little

counter space and barely enough room for a small kitchen table. It was only accessible through the living room and a third bedroom situated between the kitchen and the hallway.

“We love to entertain and knew early on that we’d need a kitchen/dining area that would be able to accommodate a good amount of people, depending on who was visiting at any given time.”­ —Joanne DiFrancesco wall between the kitchen and the dining room and opening up the third bedroom to create an open floor plan, meanwhile converting an existing sunroom into a new bedroom. Collins also recommended relocating an 8-foot sliding glass door that was originally in the sunroom to the back wall of what was to become the dining area of the new kitchen, thus allowing light to stream into the room and providing access to a new backyard patio. “When we purchased the house, the first thing my husband did was take Mike through it. He knew right off the bat what we needed to do to make the house function the way we wanted it to.” Once the plans were drawn, Gail O’Rourke, owner of White Wood Kitchens in Falmouth and Sandwich, was brought in to turn DiFrancesco’s vision into reality. “It’s always a challenge to create a large kitchen in a cottage,” O’Rourke says. “The goal was to be able to entertain large volumes of people in a small space, while also trying to design enough room for storage, seating and appliances so the kitchen was still serviceable.”

Strategic placement With all that in mind, O’Rourke recommended tucking the cooktop into a corner instead of placing it on the new 8-foot center island, which seats four and includes storage drawers, oven and a wine and beverage cooler. Now, the cooktop is close enough to be handy but far enough away not to intrude on social gatherings. “I went back and forth on that,” DiFrancesco says, “because even though it’s nice to be cooking and to be able to converse with people on the other side of the island, the area can get really hot. Putting it in the corner was the perfect place for it and gave me so much more counter space on the island.”

Team effort DiFrancesco calls the renovation, which also included Campbell Construction in South Dennis, “a real team effort.” She was especially appreciative of how O’Rourke took the time to discuss in detail any potential changes before making decisions. “Gail gave me a ton of ideas,” she says. “I’m one of those people who know what I like when I see it but can’t always visualize it. Gail was great at walking me through it in order to understand how I


was going to live in the kitchen. We talked things out, so she knew exactly what I wanted.”

Coastal colors DiFrancesco knew she wanted to decorate the kitchen in a coastal theme befitting its location, so the room is awash in hues of white and navy blue. The island countertop features a subtle pattern of gray, white and blue quartz, while the remaining counters are navy blue, matching the wood of the island. DiFrancesco preferred quartz for its durability and easy maintenance. A white tile backsplash continues the Cape Cod theme. Hanging over the island are three pendant lights from Lucia Lighting & Design in Lynn. The same fixtures are used in a hanging, tiered pattern over the dining table. “I really wanted lights that were not seen in every kitchen,” DiFrancesco says. “Lucy Dearborn from Lucia recommended several great choices. These were perfect for the size of the island and dining table. They are definitely one of the standout features.”

Special features Another innovative idea was to build a beverage/coffee station into a wall alongside a dark blue, 8-inch-wide floor-to-ceiling pantry. The beverage/coffee station has three small drawers on each side, space for a coffee maker, a shelf for coffee cups, hanging wine glass rack and slots to store eight bottles of wine. “Behind that wall are stairs leading to the basement, so we couldn’t take down the wall,” DiFrancesco says. “I love the coffee nook, which has drawers for storage, and the navy floor-to-ceiling pantry was another great idea [O’Rourke] had for what would have been an empty space.” An existing kitchen window was retained for aesthetic reasons. “From the hall you can look through that window to the backyard, which makes the room appear larger,” O’Rourke says. The now 20-foot-by-14-foot kitchen was completed last summer, just in time to host a dinner for more than 30 friends who were on the Cape in August for the wedding of a friend’s son. “That would never have been possible before,” she says. “My husband and I are totally thrilled with how the kitchen and entire home came out.”

A remodel inspired by Bauhaus brings a bathroom up to snuff with the rest of the house. By Kiley Jacques | Photos by Dan Cutrona | Design: Bridget Cahill of Seaside Design


ohn Beardsley’s Wellfleet bathroom is a highly personal affair. The retired photographer had a strong sense of what he wanted when he hired Bridget Cahill, designer and owner of Seaside Design, to help execute the remodel. It was a class on Bauhaus design that inspired Beardsley’s vision, which included bringing pieces of his large art collection into the bathroom.

A MASTER BATH TO MATCH The first order of business was to reconfigure the existing bath, which Cahill describes as “unworthy of the rest of the house” and “not on par with the size of the master bedroom.” The inefficient use of space needed remedying, and the small pre-fabricated fiberglass shower needed an upgrade. By expanding the bathroom, which now measures roughly 20 feet by 11.5 feet, Cahill was able to add a large steam shower, as well as a Kohler Sunward jetted tub with full-size deck that runs the width of the room. To counterbalance the expanse of the new bathtub, a larger window was installed and custom shelving was added to each end of the full-size deck.

h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m

MAKING WAVES Cahill saw the polished granite tub deck as an opportunity to add a touch of regional identity; its wave shape references the Cape Cod locale—a theme carried into the shower with its curved bench seating. Fantasy Brown granite—used for all horizontal surfaces including the wall vanity—was chosen to echo the home’s wooded setting, with its greens and browns picked up in the granite, which Cahill calls an “icy ocean blue-green.”

SHOWER ENVY Careful consideration was given to the construction of the luxurious steam shower, which was important to the homeowner. Measuring 6 feet by 5 feet, the oversized plated glass unit not only successfully seals in steam but also handles near-constant moisture levels with an exhaust fan located inside the shower. The pitched tiled ceiling serves to direct condensed water down toward the Splendida Glossy porcelain tile walls, thereby preventing it from dripping onto the occupant. Additionally, the controls are located immediately inside the door as opposed to beneath the showerhead, so it can

be turned on without first having to step in. And, to maintain a clear 360-degree view, the plumbing runs up through the ceiling and down into a soffit rather than down and across the floor. The client’s design sensibility played a large role in Cahill’s selections. A contemporary feel was accomplished by combining natural tones with sleek, sharp forms. Stained bamboo flooring— also found in the master bedroom—deepens the masculine appeal. “Knowing what he had in mind made it easier to maintain form and 50

function with everything,” says Cahill, noting that she was charged with figuring out where everything would go and how it would fit together. And, though Beardsley chose the lighting, Cahill ensured it was bright enough to cover the whole bathroom. Pieces from his art collection were an inspiration to the designer, as well. “He carried his tastes into the bathroom,” she says. “It was wonderful to work with somebody who appreciates that you can treat a bathroom like any other room in your house.”

A small bath strikes a balance, marrying the styles and preferences of husband and wife. By Rachel Arroyo | Photos by Dan Cutrona Build: Jim Gronski


hen Karin Lidbeck and her husband, Mike Brent, moved in to help Lidbeck’s mother, now 90 years old, they knew the traditional 1970s-era Cape-style home in Chatham would need to be renovated to accommodate everyone’s needs. As part of the whole-house remodel, a master bedroom and bath were added over the garage for the couple. “A bathroom has to be bright,” exclaims Lidbeck, who is a designer/editor and stylist by trade. “My husband wanted a more masculine bathroom,” she says, “and, of course, I wanted a more feminine [one].” Working closely with builder Jim Gronski, the couple designed a space that satisfied both of them.

SIZING UP The bathroom was the biggest challenge, says Lidbeck. “We wanted to make [it] feel substantial enough, big enough for the space that we had.” To maximize the room’s footprint, inches were stolen from the bedroom closet. “For us, it was more important to have a bigger bathroom than have space for our clothes,” says Lidbeck, “because we could use a lot of built-ins for clothes.” And, through skilled engineering, a last-minute change gave the small bath its more sizable appearance. “I remember [Gronski] already had the framing up for a single door when we decided to change it to a glass French door,” says Lidbeck, which makes the bath feel more like a part of the bedroom while also allowing light to stream into both rooms. About Gronski, Lidbeck says, “He was very easy and open to new ideas and changing [things] as we went along.” h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m

Grasscloth wallpaper and basketweave accent tile add pattern and texture to the neutral color palette.

The dressing table under the eave was another clever last-minute addition, turning an awkward, unused space into an area for beauty and grooming. “Having a dressing table in the bathroom is wonderful,” shares Lidbeck. A trio of metal birds from Porter & Mags in Dennisport frames the dressing area.

STAYING NEUTRAL The bathroom’s color palette was inspired by a stunning piece of marble that Lidbeck and her artist husband found on a scouting trip to Granite World in Harwich. “It is just so visually interesting and has so much character,” says Lidbeck, and, “[Mike] liked the masculine quality of it.” To complement the bold and natural marble top, Lidbeck favored an overall neutral palette for the room with subtle textures and patterns to add visual interest. To echo the pickled oak floors in the master bedroom, Lidbeck chose a “white oak” 6-inch-by-36-inch porcelain plank tile from Daltile’s Forest Park collection, which also was installed horizontally on the lower one-third of the bathroom wall for a more modern look. For texture and transition, Ripple Blend glass mosaic tile from Daltile’s Intertwine collection separates the porcelain plank tile beneath from the “Sablewood” grasscloth wallpaper in eggshell by Thibaut above. Adding beauty and light to the Bertch “Interlude” 54-inch vanity with a driftwood finish is a pair of crackled, clear glass pendants by Shades of Light.

AN INSPIRED WISH LIST Lidbeck’s profession came in handy during the design process. “As a stylist,” she says, “I am exposed to so much great design material that it helped me decide what I liked.” One of the must-haves on her list was a rainshower head, which she paired with a Kohler Purist multifunction handshower. For the shower floor tile, a flat, mosaic riverstone was chosen for its natural, organic feel and look. When asked about what she likes best about her new master bath, Lidbeck has much to say: “I love that it’s not white but it’s still bright; it’s a warm neutral color and full of textures, which gives the room a cozy warmth; the comfort and size— not too big, not too small; everything is so convenient, and I think we accomplished a bathroom that is both masculine and feminine.” 54

Designer Julie Lyons fashions a traditionally inspired master bath and closet rich in architectural detail. By Kiley Jacques | Photographs by Matt Baldelli Photography Design & Build: Roomscapes Cabinetry and Design Center


hen it came time to design a master bathroom and closet for Therese and John Adams, Julie Lyons, senior designer with Roomscapes Cabinetry and Design Center, took cues from the 1929 Georgian Revival housing the two rooms. Her idea was to honor the high level of ornamentation found throughout the historic ship captain’s home overlooking Hingham Harbor. “It was refreshing because you don’t see that much nowadays—it’s more about clean lines,” says Lyons, agreeing that one could spend hours taking in the bath’s Italianate details.

MAKING CONNECTIONS The remodel addressed poorly executed updates that had taken place over the years. Partitions were removed and the master bedroom was opened up to re-create a more traditional layout. Likewise, a series of small closets were combined to make one large

closet room. The expanded 180-square-foot master closet opens to a 240-square-foot master bath with original moldings and architectural details. There are now two entries to the bath—one from a small laundry room and another from the closet. “Those two rooms were designed to speak to each other,” says Lyons of the bath and closet.

CUSTOM CREATIONS Taking center stage in the bath is a vanity of solid marble imported from Italy, which the client had pre-selected from a stone yard. The 1,000-pound slab needed to be craned through a window. The customdesigned support beneath it needed to be exceptionally strong to carry the weight, hence the six Enkeboll corbels (installed three back-to-back) and structural supports between. Together they form a console-like table, with decorative molding on the lower and upper sections, that functions as a full

h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m

vanity. The walnut wood assembly was sent to Wood-Mode Fine Cabinetry to be hand-finished, as were the custom-framed recessed Robern medicine cabinets and vanity mirrors with Enkeboll inlays. For lighting, the client chose thin candelabras for a sophisticated yet understated touch. Of equal importance is the plain-sawn white oak armoire with Java matte finish. Designed to fit around an existing window, which now sits inside the cabinet box, the piece allows natural light to filter through its glass panels. Made to look freestanding, the armoire is comprised of individual cabinet units fitted together and attached to the wall. Glass doors with leaded detail, intricate side molding, and apron stretchers lend an antique look, while a combination of pulls with pewter finish complement the tub. “The whole piece, including the legs, was free-drawn and custom made— nothing about it was stock,” notes Lyons.

OLD WORLD ORNAMENTATION The hand-burnished and lacquered cast iron French bateau tub that the client had picked out proved challenging. Lyons wanted it to be a focal point in the long and narrow space; the question became where to site it so it would appear symmetrical and centered between two windows of different heights. The solution took the form of laser-cut Jeffrey Court mosaic tile and an arched marble pencil liner that frames the transition from Speartek tile—a treatment repeated in the shower. “The busyness of the tile pulls it all together, so the tub feels like it is centered in the space,” Lyons explains. The same level of ornamentation continues into the closet, which is meant to feel like a woman’s boudoir—replete with an antique-style ottoman. A tall jewelry cupboard runs the height of the cabinets, which are sectioned for shoes, hanging areas, and a pullout for slacks. Lyons intended for the room to have a strong presence. The heavy weight of the wood and dark finishes are a counterbalance to the lighter tiled bathroom. The entire ensemble remains true to the original house while serving a contemporary family with a taste for haute design. h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m

Kitchen & Bath Trends

What’s Trending in Kitchen and Bath Design? Six local experts weigh in.


he kitchen and bath business is booming. The U.S. market for kitchen and bath products and materials is expected to rise 9.3 percent over last year, reaching $178 billion, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Market Outlook Study. So, how are homeowners spending their money? According to the study, among other trends, American homeowners are embracing quartz countertops, custom storage and white and gray painted cabinets, while an interest in smart home technology continues to grow. To gain some local insight, we’ve asked six experts about the kitchen and bath trends they’re noticing here. We also took the opportunity to ask what trends they’d like to see come back or go away and what upgrades they’d like to integrate into their own homes. Here is what they had to say. those pesky blind corner bases that you used to have to climb into to find anything. These allow you to pull everything out of the cabinet for easy access and visibility. We feature both in our South Dennis showroom.

returns again. Although these antique beauties are a thing of the past, remnants of this era still exist in homes today.

On trends for 2018: The number of brands that offer WiFi-enabled appliances you can monitor and control from your smartphone is growing. Imagine preheating your oven when you’re in traffic or checking your phone to see if the roast is up to temperature. Most connected appliances can also be diagnosed for service issues remotely.

One upgrade you’d make to your own bath: Having built our home 20 years ago, today we are faced with several upgrades. One upgrade on the wish list is to remodel the central bathroom in our home that is used by our children and guests. Currently there is a one-piece fiberglass tub/shower unit in the bathroom and the plan is to remove it. A deep soaking tub and a custom tile surround will replace the existing fiberglass unit. Other upgrades will include a handheld shower, rainfall shower head, body jets and a frameless glass-door enclosure.

Induction cooking is another trend. Induction uses magnetism and is an alternative to electric cooking. It’s already widely used in Europe. With induction, the cooking surface doesn’t get hot so it is a very safe option when there are small children, elderly or pets in the home. Another huge benefit to induction cooking is its speed and precision. One trend you wish would return or disappear: More colors like blue, green and red in kitchen appliances and home phones with cords that plug into the wall!

Vanities can be a powerful design statement, says designer Susan Curtis.

A second bath trend I suspect will grow in popularity in 2018 is custom-designed vanities. Vanities now range from pieces that resemble antique furniture and cabinets with open shelves to sleek floating vessels attached to the wall. [They] can be a powerful design statement that can dictate the overall style and tone of a bathroom.

ome inventions change the world. Thomas Edison’s 1879 patent for what would become the first commercially successful electric light bulb was ground breaking, effectively changing the way people lived and worked in the blink of an eye. Today, however, most people don’t give lighting a second thought. Except, of course, lighting designers like Nancy Cataldo, residential lighting manager for Granite City Electric and Joy Smith, lighting designer and co-owner of Fleming’s of Cohasset Village, who spend their days helping clients design their version of a well-lit room. When it comes to lighting, “There are so many options today,” says Cataldo. To help customers zero in on the best lighting for their needs, information is key. The dimensions of a room, color palette, décor and how the space is being used all come into play when drafting a lighting plan. With decades of industry experience between them, Cataldo and Smith offer these tips on how to put your home in the best light possible.

Know your numbers To start, Smith recommends bringing blueprints to your lighting consultation. If none are available, room measurements will work too. “Room dimensions are essential,” Smith stresses, and should include ceiling heights. Pictures of the home’s exterior elevations and interior are also helpful. “Ideally, the lighting consultant will make a site inspection at some point,” she says, “but these pictures can be invaluable in the meantime, or in cases where inspection is not possible.” Other measurements needed: the width, length and height of a table or kitchen island, if a hanging light fixture is to be installed overhead. The height of the ceiling paired with the measurements of the table will help determine the size of the hanging light fixture. For example, you don’t want a hanging light fixture to be so wide it ends up crowding one’s headspace, explains Cataldo. Take cues from your surroundings While measurements inform the ideal size of a lighting fixture, a room’s décor will influence the fixture’s style and finish as well as 64

the light temperature of the bulb. To find light fixtures “that are really going to pop and blend with the customer’s style,” Cataldo takes cues from everything from paint colors and fabrics to flooring and countertops. Since the birth of another great “invention,” LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs, consumers now have a range of color temperatures for lighting. Color temperature describes the appearance of the light, and is measured in degrees of Kelvin on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000. A good and acceptable residential lighting base is between 2,700 and 3,000 Kelvin units, says Smith. For rooms with a cooler color palette of whites and true grays, Cataldo recommends a 3,000k light bulb and for warmer hues like reds, browns and greens she suggests 2,700k. Create lighting layers Lifestyle and how a space is used are also important considerations when it comes to creating an effective lighting plan. With this information, a designer will layer different types of lighting— ambient, task and accent—to best fit the client’s needs.

h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m


For the kitchen, where we cook and entertain, Smith says to pay particular attention to the functional work triangle—the locations of the refrigerator, cooktop/oven and sink/dishwasher. “Each of these areas needs bright task lighting such as recessed or track lighting, under-cabinet lighting, and pendants or other hanging or ceiling lights,” she says. Smith also suggests dimmable ambient lighting, such as a chandelier over a dining area or wall sconces, which can be left on in the kitchen when work is complete and it’s time to relax.


The living room is a great place for recessed lighting, says Cataldo. “That would be my number one suggestion and of course lamps in the areas where you would be sitting and reading.” Here, dimmers are also recommended. “Dimmers are key,” she says, because there will be times when less light is needed, like on family movie nights.


Again, layers of lighting are important. “Wall sconces provide ambient light while adding style, mood and comfort,” Smith explains. For task lighting, Smith recommends bedside swing-arm wall lights to easily direct light for reading. And, instead of bedside table lamps, consider hanging pendant fixtures, she says. “The look can be quite serene, especially if the pendants are made from natural materials.”

LIGHTING DO’S AND DON’TS Don’t go too small with your lighting fixtures. It would be better to be a little too big than too small. Do communicate with the electrician (and architect) far in advance of any work being done. Request that your team wait to install electrical boxes for wall lighting until all product selections have been made. Otherwise, lighting choices could be limited by the size and type of electrical boxes installed. Don’t use only non-decorative lighting throughout the home. Over reliance on nondecorative lighting, like recessed lights, will result in a sterile, uncomfortable, poorly lit environment.


For the bathroom, where good lighting is needed for grooming, Smith suggests placing fixtures on either side of the mirror to avoid the harsh shadows and glare that overhead lighting would provide.


Ceiling height will dictate lighting options for an entryway. “Typically we will install a flush-mount there,” Cataldo shares, “unless the ceiling is higher.” She adds: “If you have the ceiling height for it, add a beautiful [hanging] fixture to illuminate the space while making it warm and welcoming.”


“Sustainability continues to be an important trend in lighting and home décor at all levels,” Smith reports. “Newer fixtures with integrated LED can last 50,000 hours,” she says, “and many LEDs are now dimmable.” Additionally, with “smart homes” becoming more mainstream, interest in lighting automation continues to grow. “Lighting dimmers, timers and motion sensors are a simple and relatively inexpensive but effective way to begin the process of automating control of your lighting,” says Smith. (See Smart Bulb Sidebar) On the design side, Smith cites mid-century modern and industrial-style fixtures as an industry trend: “[They] are coming on strong today and being incorporated with transitional styles in the home.” Cataldo agrees, adding, “Industrial style is very big for [Granite City Elecrtic].” Two-tone finishes for fixtures is not a new trend, but mixed-finish offerings where black is one of the finishes is, says Smith, especially black paired with polished nickel or black with antique brass. “This look complements the home décor trend toward grays and “greiges” in both interiors and exteriors,” Smith says. Cataldo reports polished nickel and chrome and gold finishes are really hot in the lighting industry right now, too. h o m e r e m o d e l i n g m a g.c o m


ColorChoice LED light bulbs, part of Feit Electric’s new IntelliBulb™product line, provide consumers more lighting options without the expense of home automation technology. Convenient and user-friendly, ColorChoice LEDs, one of five lighting solutions offered, gives consumers three color temperature choices – soft white (seen here), cool white and daylight – all within one energy-efficient bulb. Just select the desired color temperature using a standard wall light switch or pre-select using the switch on the bulb. Other lighting solutions featured in the new product line are: an LED with a built-in sensor that automatically turns the bulb on at night and off during the day; a motionactivated LED bulb; one that offers three brightness settings and another that provides three hours of emergency backup lighting.

HYDRANGEA HUNT Which variety is ideal for your yard? Text and photos by Barbara Conolly


t’s no secret that the Cape and Islands have a longstanding love for hydrangeas. From Bourne to Provincetown, they grace our fences and line our foundations. We write poems and books about them. We celebrate them with their own festival, and when the summer season draws to a close, we cut and dry them to admire during our long winters. In summer, I especially love browsing our local garden centers to seek out new cultivars of hydrangeas. The colors range from white and pink to red, purple and blue.


The most popular of the hydrangea species, Hydrangea macrophylla or bigleaf hydrangea is often noted for its sensitivity to soil pH, with acidic soils delivering degrees of blue flowers and alkaline soils producing pinks. What the plant is really reacting to is the availability of aluminum in your soil, which is determined by its pH level. For the bluest blooms, your soil’s pH level should be between 5.2 to 5.5. At levels over 6.0, your plant won’t be able to absorb the aluminum in soil, resulting in lovely pink to mauve blooms. Not all bigleaf hydrangea cultivars are pH sensitive; some produce lovely white flowers at any pH level. As we often see on the Cape, flower buds are susceptible to freezing from late frosts. Avoid placing these on a south66

Some are as small as two feet tall, while others can grow to eight feet or more, not to mention a climber that can grow to more than 20 feet! Some flower on old wood only, some on new, and some flower on both; it’s easy to get overwhelmed. How do you choose? To help select the best hydrangeas for your site conditions, here is a look at six of the most common species. I recommend assessing your home’s site conditions, including sun and shade, water availability, type of soil and pH level.

facing wall where radiant warmth can encourage early budding, leaving them vulnerable to frost. New cultivars crop up continuously. Most notable are the remontant varieties that bloom on current-year stems as well as previous-year wood, such as “Endless Summer.” Dwarf forms of bigleaf hydrangeas such as the “Cityline” and the “Let’s Dance” series are also growing in popularity. These plants range in height from 1 foot to 4 feet. Don’t be fooled though; there’s nothing dwarf about the size of the blooms! A native to Japan, H. macrophylla prefers partial to full shade, with the best blooms occurring with some sun. It favors moist, well-drained soils with lots of organic content.

Opposite page: “Cityline” Venice is a popular dwarf variety of bigleaf hydrangea. Left to right: A remontant variety of hydrangea, “Endless Summer” blooms on current- and previous-year wood. “Limelight” does well in moist, well-drained soil and sunny locations.


Originating in Korea and Japan, Hydrangea serrata or “Mountain Hydrangea” greatly resembles H. macrophylla, though it may have less cold tolerance. Most cultivars are of the lace-cap form. Look for “Coerulea Lace,” “Benigaku” and “Blue Billow.”


A native to China and the Himalayas, Hydrangea anomala or “Climbing Hydrangea” is a true climbing vine using rootlike holdfasts to grasp onto vertical surfaces, fences or posts. These can be stunning growing on a north-facing chimney or wall. It is important to note that once you remove the vine from a wall, its holdfasts will never cling again. You’ll need to prune back the plant and allow it to regrow. Its sweet-smelling flowers show best in mid-summer. Tolerant of sun to partial shade conditions, H. anomala can also tolerate a wide range of soil conditions.


Hydrangea paniculata, aka “Panicle Hydrangea,” really shines in the fall landscape. Grown either as a single-stemmed tree-like specimen or in its natural shrub shape, this species has taken its rightly deserved place in Cape Cod gardens. A native of China and Japan, H. paniculata is perfect for sunny locations, but will take some shade as well. Although it seems to be somewhat drought tolerant, it does best in moist, well-drained soils. Most cultivars have a distinctive cone-shaped inflorescence, sometimes turning shades of pink to red as the season progresses. My favorites include “Limelight,” “Strawberry Sundae” and “Fire Light.” Look also for dwarf forms like “Little Lime” and “Bobo.”


Hydrangea arborescens, or smooth-leaf hydrangea, is best known for its cultivar “Annabelle,” whose large mophead flowers can visually light up a shaded spot in a garden. Flowers are borne on new growth, so they are all but guaranteed to bloom each year. Native to southern New England, H. arborescens prefers partial shade and a moist, well-drained, organically rich soil. Check out cultivars “Incrediball” and “Invincibelle” varieties and “Hayes Starburst.”


Native to the southeastern United States, Hydrangea quercifolia or oakleaf hydrangea is especially prized for its beautiful autumn foliage turning shades of red to purple. Best leaf coloration occurs when sited in some sun, but this species does well in partial shade. Plant in moist, well-drained, organic soil. Upright pyramidal flowers peak in July. Notable cultivars include “Alice” and “Snow Queen.” •

The shops and showrooms on the following pages understand this. Many have arranged complete vignettes that incorporate all of the elements you’ll need for a successful remodel.

DAVID RICARDI DESIGNS 1582 Main St., Route 6A, East Dennis; 508-619-7384: Davidricardidesigns.com When you step into David Ricardi Designs’ East Dennis showroom, it feels like home. A crisp white kitchen, adorned with a vase of fresh flowers, faces a comfy living area where a television plays a cooking show. A serene bath area awash in coastal hues, set adjacently, features an enviable walk-in shower and porcelain tile flooring with the look of wood and radiant heating. There is not a sample rack in sight, which was the intention of owner and kitchen and bath designer David Ricardi. “My idea was to develop a showroom that feels like you are walking into your own home,” he says. “I wanted a complete kitchen so people could sit here and look around and feel like they are in a kitchen and think: Wow this could be my kitchen,” he says. The showroom, which has two working kitchens, a bath and a living area, showcases locally sourced products and materials— 68

appliances, stone, tile, window treatments­—and, of course, the company’s design capabilities.

CLASSIC TILE & STONE 9 Whiting St., Hingham; 781-741-5230: classictile-stone.com

Sisters Julie Ryan and Kristin Henaghan began working together more than two and a half decades ago, first at the Boston Design Center and now as owners of their own business, Classic Tile & Stone. “It actually would be weird not to work together,” says Ryan. In 2003, the sisters, who are from the South Shore, recognized a need in their own backyard for a retail and design business that specializes in tile, glass and stone. “Before we opened there really wasn’t a showroom where you could get the lines we carry without having to make a trip into the Boston Design Center,” says Henaghan. Classic Tile & Stone features products that cover a variety of styles in a range of price points. “I think one of the big misconceptions about the store is that we are just high-end,” says Ryan, “which is not true.” Henaghan adds: “One of the things we are really good at is working within someone’s budget. We can use the $5-per-squarefoot tile, but put something else with it to create a very custom look

without the client having to spend a ton of money.” One of Henaghan’s and Ryan’s favorite products is a waterjet stone mosaic tile. “It’s a process in making stone mosaics that is more precise,” Henaghan explains, which creates cleaner, crisper edges. “It is very detailed now,” says Ryan. “It is a little more updated, fresher.” While the showroom provides a well-culled selection of the latest products, special emphasis is put on offering timeless tile and design. “We are not looking to sell customers trendy stuff that in four or five years they are going to be asking themselves ‘Why did I buy that?,” says Ryan. “It’s right in our name: Classic Tile & Stone.” The showroom also carries stone for patios, walkways and outdoor kitchens as well as for swimming pool and spa areas. Ryan quips, “If you can tile it, we can do it!” Classic Tile & Stone is open year-round and offers tile and stone design services. Free in-home design consultations are available.

“Casual Designs of Cape Cod has the largest selection of outdoor furnishings available on Cape Cod between our two locations.” In addition to a wider selection of products available, today’s outdoor furnishings are trending towards a more modern, streamlined look. Sectionals with fire pits and synthetic wicker mixed with teak also are popular, says Concordia, as well as furniture frames in neutral colors, like gray and taupe, and solid fabrics with throw pillows to add a pop of color. With so many outdoor living products on the market, it can be difficult to wade through the options.

Our goal is to create outdoor spaces that are equal in function and flair to that of the home’s interior.”
