This Jersey Shore beach home makeover led to a space that puts as much emphasis on function as it does design. The kitchen boasts contemporary, sleek cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, with a sea glass backsplash to bring back the beachy feel this family loves. A glass top table in the dining room is the perfect way to show off its traditional legs given new life with blue high-gloss paint, while a bubble-shaped chandelier hangs overhead. The living room continues the open, airy theme with white couches, a traditional fireplace mantel given the same blue-paint treatment, and some wood and leather accents to warm it all up. The picture frame air conditioner brings in discreet functionality. Polished concrete floors are easy to clean during family gatherings, while the large wall of glass doors open up to a backyard perfect for entertaining, complete with an outdoor kitchen, pizza oven, and bocce court.
