Visit an Interior Designer’s Beautiful Beach House Retreat
Interior designer Karen Wolf spent her childhood visiting Long Beach Island, New Jersey, with her family. Now with kids of her own, she’s been keeping up the tradition. “It has a really soft spot in my heart,” she says.
To ensure the nostalgic destination stays in the family, she recently designed a relaxing new beach house retreat for everyone to use, including her parents. She embraced local coastal colors like sandy beiges, watery blues and creamy whites to give the vacation home a soothing ambiance. She then turned to durable materials such as porcelain and glass that can hold up to beach life. A cohesive color palette, layers of organic textures and timeless details create a welcoming getaway for generations to come.
