Jen + Raymond Cleveland, Oh

Being only a couple of houses away from the shores of Lake Erie, Raymond and Jennifer's house was designed to reflect a coastal state of mind. The couple was in on every aspect of its creation, hammering nails, and raising and finishing walls themselves.

"We have a love for East Coast homes, Maine cottages... I also love the South, and Georgia plantations," says Jennifer. "We needed to find a happy medium to incorporate the look and feel for both." While the style of their home embraces aspects of a summer cottage environment, its understated design provides a perfect backdrop for Jennifer's ever-changing decor.

Houzz at a GlanceWho lives here: Raymond Ciacchi, Jr., and Jennifer Harrison-Ciacchi raised 5 kids here; now they share the house with their 4 dogs, Maggie, Ernesto, Mila and RigbyLocation: Euclid, OhioSize: 3,900 square feet (362 square meters), 4 bedrooms, 4 bathroomsThe key to Harrison-Ciacchi’s aesthetic lies in her childhood, when her mother and aunts would take her on weekly trips to antiques shops and garage sales. “My mom has always been the one to teach me the ways of antiquing, garage sales, thrifting and garbage picking,” she says. “I believe whatever you put in your home is what you should love, and that way it creates its own style. I’ve been collecting for so long that a lot of my treasures have come together because I love them.” The result is a space filled with new finds and old treasures that is simple, fun and bright.The house sits just a couple of houses away from the shores of Lake Erie, so the couple designed their family home with coastal style in mind.“We have a love for East Coast homes and Maine cottages,” says Harrison-Ciacchi. “I also love the South and Georgia plantations. We needed to find a happy medium to incorporate the look and feel of both.”

I want my house painted a very light color with pure white trim like this house. I would paint shutters charcoal gray to go with the charcoal roof installed last year.
